Latest PlayStation 2 Game Reviews...
Monsters vs. Aliens
PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
See? Pigs need not fly before a decent movie-based game comes along. Now that's a relief. So is Monsters vs. Aliens, mainly because it isn't priced like a sucker's bet.

MLB 09: The Show
PlayStation 2
As with MLB 09: The Show on PlayStation3 and PlayStation Portable, the PlayStation2 version builds on a solid foundation while also suffering a couple of newly introduced hitches. Still, as the least expensive of the three, it's well worth a looksee.

Mercenaries 2: World In Flames
PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
EA's new go-anywhere, over-the-top sandbox combat game, brimming with Hollywood-grade, oft-comedic violence, is very aptly named. "World in Flames" indeed. It's all good.

UEFA Euro 2008
PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Funny how a fanatic can be expected to pay any price for a soccer game. But as UEFA Euro 2008 is basically akin to a single-purpose expansion pack for FIFA soccer, is it so not worth a full $50. Not even close.

Kung Fu Panda
PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360
There's nothing quite like gathering the family together on the couch, firing up the oh-so wholesome Wii and then beating the crap out of all creatures great and small. And cuddly.

Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360
Swapping Force for Fedora, the plastic fantastic Lego games go grave robbing with some whipsmacking professor named Henry. Mind the snakes.

Silent Hill Origins
PlayStation 2
If you like your videogaming with mood, polish and some freaky scares, it doesn't get any more consistently stylish or creepy than the Silent Hill series. Silent Hill Origins specifically, meanwhile, is illustrative of why the ol' PS2 is still a relevant game system.

MLB 08 The Show
PlayStation 2
Meet the new Show. Same as the old Show. But you'll get fooled (again?) by the updated rosters, the new cover athlete, and the price tag insinuating "new Show."
