Zipper Interactive did a fine job bringing third-person tactical shooting to the PS2 with the original SOCOM: US Navy Seals, but this sequel improved on just about every aspect of it. The single-player experience featured better AI, more varied objectives, và additional weaponry over the course of its 12 missions. However, those that experienced it back in the day know that the real fun was lớn be had online, as it was one of the best-networked experiences available on Sony’s console.

Developer: Sumo DigitalReleased: 2006

Sega AM2’s driving game is a simple thing – you just need lớn drive wonderful Ferrari cars through absolutely beautiful scenery, taking advantage of one of gaming’s most satisfying drift mechanics as you go. That was all there was to lớn it in the arcade but Sumo Digital’s conversion adds so much more through the Coast 2 Coast mode, with all sorts of driving challenges to keep you busy. If you like arcade racing games, you won’t find many that are as joyous as this, and it’s worth picking up for the PS2 as licensing issues saw later digital releases get de-listed.

Developer: TreasureReleased: 2004

If you don’t feel like the PS2 is retro yet, this trò chơi might make you think twice. Just imagine the kind of cosmic alignment that would be required khổng lồ get Konami lớn publish a boxed, retail shoot-’em-up developed by Treasure in today’s market. It’s a shame, because this is a superb continuation of a classic gaming series, with great graphics & some inventive new ways to use the Option drones that have always been a staple of the series. It’s a decidedly old-school experience and one that is an essential purchase for any tín đồ of the genre.

22. Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution

Developer: SegaReleased: 2003

After a good showing with its first release of Virtua Fighter 4, Sega’s updated version smoothed out the graphics, added a couple of extra fighters & topped it off with substantial single-player content. The result was a truly top-class game, whether you were beating your friends down or facing off against foes in the virtual arcades of Quest mode, based on real-life pro players. This series has a reputation for being impenetrable, but that’s not really justified – it’s very simple to learn, with just three main buttons and one of the best tutorial modes of its time.

21. Rồng Quest 8: Journey Of The Cursed King

Developer: Level 5Released: 2004

There’s something very comforting about the PS2’s only major dragon Quest game. As befitting a game from the quintessential Japanese RPG series, it remains an expression of the vi xử lý core of the genre, and it was a perfect introduction for European players who got this as their first official game in the series. It’s a simple game, and even by the standards of the series, it has a straightforward plot. But there’s a value in being brilliant at the basics, và this trò chơi nails that in every aspect, from Akira Toriyama’s attractive cel-shaded character designs khổng lồ the top-notch localization.

20. Gran Turismo 4

Developer: Polyphony DigitalReleased: 2004

If you wanted your racing games on the more realistic side, Gran Turismo 4 was way ahead of the rest of the console pack in its day. Polyphony Digital didn’t try to vì anything particularly new or clever with the game & focused on improving the things that had made the series so popular khổng lồ begin with. With over 700 cars và more than 50 tracks khổng lồ race on, Gran Turismo 4 is a game of truly mammoth proportions & one that looked absolutely phenomenal. The new B-Spec racing management mode was a fine addition khổng lồ the on track kích hoạt too.

19. Tony Hawk’s Underground


(Image credit: Activision)

Developer: NeversoftReleased: 2003

You’ve got to lớn give Neversoft credit – given how popular its skateboarding series was, it would have been easy khổng lồ simply put out another formulaic entry. Instead, the team took a gamble and pushed the series in a bold new direction, incorporating a more free-roaming style of play và a substantial story element that hadn’t existed in previous games. While the trò chơi was clearly at its best when you were on your board, the ability to lớn walk around and pick up challenges on the fly refreshed a series that was potentially in danger of becoming a little bit stale.

18. Kingdom Hearts


(Image credit: Square Enix)

Developer: SquareReleased: 2002

Smashing the beloved characters of Disney together with one of the most popular Japanese RPG series was bound lớn create some sort of fandom explosion, & it did just that – Kingdom Hearts still has very passionate fans today. Of course, there’s no instant answer khổng lồ how such a crossover should play, so Square did what it knew best & came up with this brilliantly presented and overall rather excellent kích hoạt RPG. It’s a delight khổng lồ see Mickey and Donald visiting worlds like Agrabah và Halloween Town, as well as interacting with the likes of Tidus và Cloud from Final Fantasy.

17. Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal


(Image credit: Sony)

Developer: Insomniac GamesReleased: 2004

The Tyhrranoids are attacking Veldin, & Ratchet’s not going khổng lồ stand for seeing his trang chủ planet besieged! However, he quickly discovers that there’s more to lớn this invasion than meets the eye, chiefly because of the manipulations of Dr. Nefarious. The first two games in this series were both excellent, but it’s the extra polish and large range of weapons that earns the third game in the trilogy its place on this list. By this point, the balance between platforming & shooting has definitely tipped in favor of the latter, but when it looks & plays like a dream, who’s complaining?

16. Katamari Damacy


(Image credit: Bandai Namco)

Developer: NamcoReleased: 2004

The King Of All Cosmos got drunk & broke the sky, & now it’s your job khổng lồ go down lớn Earth & fix it. How? By rolling up objects into progressively larger balls, which are launched into space to create new stars. Obviously. The core kích hoạt of accumulating larger & larger objects, from batteries to boats, is very satisfying indeed – but just as much fun comes from the game’s oddball sense of character. The King is an absolute hoot, và the deliberately low-polygon look khổng lồ the game’s colorful graphics gives the whole thing a very surreal atmosphere from start lớn finish.

15. SSX Tricky


(Image credit: EA)

Developer: EA CanadaReleased: 2001

The first trò chơi in EA’s snowboarding series was a much-needed highlight of the PS2’s underwhelming launch line-up, but the sequel made it wholly redundant. The original game’s courses were all remixed và a couple of extra ones were added for good measure, while the showboating became even more outlandish with the addition of new Uber tricks. Beyond that, everything that players loved about the first game made the cut the second time around, be it the vibrant characters or the boisterous racing action. The fact that it’s still in the conversation for best snowboarding game ever says it all, really.

14. Amplitude


(Image credit: Sony)

Developer: HarmonixReleased: 2003

Harmonix was making great music games long before it struck plastic instrument gold with the Guitar anh hùng series, & Amplitude is a great example of that. This sequel to lớn the extremely underrated Frequency tasked you with trying to lớn get a tuy nhiên to auto-play by successfully playing certain sections of notes, across up to six instruments. This frantic juggling act was enhanced greatly by the eclectic soundtrack, taking in the likes of David Bowie, Run DMC, Blink-182, Slipknot, and Garbage. Although the remake for PS3 and PS4 is out there, we think it’s hard to đứng đầu the musical selection here.

13. Okami


(Image credit: Capcom)

Developer: Clover StudiosReleased: 2006

Capcom’s short-lived Clover Studio put out some great games, and Ōkami is one of the very best. This trò chơi puts players in control of Amaterasu, a sun goddess in wolf form whose goal is lớn save the land from darkness. This is arguably the closest thing to The Legend Of Zelda series that Sony’s console has, & it gives Nintendo’s classics a run for their money. The game’s quality visual style, inspired by classical Japanese artwork, gave it a cult appeal that ultimately saw the trò chơi converted to lớn many other platforms despite the disappointing sales of the PS2 original.

12. Jak và Daxter: The Precursor Legacy


(Image credit: Sony)

Developer: Naughty DogReleased: 2001

Having achieved great success on the PS1 with Crash Bandicoot, Naughty Dog decided to vày something new for the next generation, & this was the result. Jak và Daxter is exactly the kind of collect-’em-up platformer that had been very popular in the previous generation but had the kind of open 3D environments that those older machines just couldn’t have achieved. Of course, it still featured the polished game design we’ve grown to expect from Naughty Dog, và the charismatic characters were expertly brought to life in the game’s plentiful in-engine cutscenes. It’s worth noting that the sequels are quite different.

11. Beyond Good & Evil


(Image credit: Ubisoft)

Developer: UbisoftReleased: 2003

Tragically overlooked at the time of its release in 2003, this action-adventure has since come khổng lồ be recognized as an excellent trò chơi that just didn’t quite get the sales push it needed. You play as Jade, whose planet is under assault from the DomZ – alien creatures that kill or enslave other creatures that they encounter. After being sought out by resistance forces, she finds herself uncovering the true nature of the DomZ. While the trò chơi design was perfectly good, what really stood out for the time was the unique of the storytelling as well as Jade’s appealing character.

10. Burnout 3: Takedown


(Image credit: EA)

Developer: Criterion GamesReleased: 2004

Criterion’s first two Burnout games were great arcade racers, but their spectacular crashes were always something lớn avoid. This third trò chơi managed to correct that injustice by making combat a key part of the racing. Nothing was off-limits – you could slam your rivals into walls, run them into oncoming traffic or even drop down on them from above, all in the name of winning a race. It was incredibly fast & graphically spectacular, of course, but the cathartic release of aggression was always the highlight for us – and if that ever got boring, you could always cause carnage in the Crash Junctions.

9. Devil May Cry


(Image credit: Capcom)

Developer: CapcomReleased: 2001

Getting the hack-and-slash right in 3 chiều was something that developers struggled with for a long time, and Capcom was arguably the first to lớn achieve it with this early classic for the PS2. Dante’s first outing was originally conceived as a new direction for Resident Evil, but the game design became an original project incorporating a mixture of gunplay and close-range sword fighting, with emphasis on stringing together stylish combinations of attacks. The action is as smooth as the combos, và the game immediately established Dante as one of Capcom’s most beloved characters. Be sure to kiểm tra out the third game too.

8. Ico

Developer: Team IcoReleased: 2001

Frequently cited in tedious discussions on the artistic merit of videogames, Fumito Ueda’s directorial debut is great regardless of how you classify it. Ico’s basic thiết kế takes a lot from the likes of Prince Of Persia, with a mixture of platforming, puzzles & combat at the heart of the action. Ico’s unique feature is that its titular character is tasked with the protection of a captive girl named Yorda, whose difficulty in traversing the environment is a key part of the game’s puzzles. A full game escort mission might sound like the worst thing ever, but trust us – this one’s worth it.

7. Final Fantasy 10


(Image credit: Square Enix)

Developer: SquareReleased: 2001

The city of Zanarkand has been attacked by Sin, và suddenly, our nhân vật Tidus finds himself in the world of Spira. With no idea what’s going on, the talented Blitzball player sets out to lớn discover what happened & prevent it from happening again, meeting plenty of friends along the way. Final Fantasy 10 wasn’t a radical game play evolution but made revolutionary changes to lớn the presentation of the series. For the first time, it was possible khổng lồ explore fully 3 chiều environments, and key cutscenes featured both detailed real-time character models và the introduction of full voice acting, drawing you into the story.

6. God Of War


(Image credit: Sony)

Developer: Sony Santa MonicaReleased: 2005

Our first introduction to lớn Kratos has held up very well over time, & feels especially good now that the series has moved on from its original Greek mythology theme “Small” is not a word in the vocabulary of this classic brawler – absolutely everything is dialed up lớn eleven, from the detail of the scenery & dramatic musical score to the form size of the bosses & of course the level of violence on display. Kratos will pluck the wings from smaller enemies và plunge the Blades of Chaos deep into larger foes, often as part of some wonderfully choreographed QTE sequences.

5. Silent Hill 2


(Image credit: Konami)

Developer: Team SilentReleased: 2001

While the original PlayStation trò chơi was great, it was Silent Hill 2 that really established the series as a major name in survival horror. Instead of revisiting the first game’s cast, new protagonist James visits the town after receiving a letter from his wife – who died three years prior khổng lồ the start of the game. Pyramid Head is rightly recognized as one of gaming’s most iconic monsters, but what really sets Konami’s sequel apart from other games in the genre is that it focuses on psychological horror rather than gore, và tackles some pretty taboo themes in ways that videogames rarely approach.

4. Resident Evil 4


(Image credit: Capcom)

Developer: CapcomReleased: 2005

After years of tank controls and fixed camera angles, the Resident Evil series desperately needed some fresh ideas, and Capcom delivered them at just the right time. That started with getting rid of the zombies – Los Ganados were clever, cooperative and they could even use weapons. Worse yet, the over-the-shoulder perspective meant that you were much closer khổng lồ the action. The game was a disgusting treat to behold, and the action-packed QTE scenes meant that you could never entirely relax. The switch khổng lồ a more action-oriented approach to the series was a huge success & influenced countless other games.

3. Shadow Of The Colossus


(Image credit: Sony)

Developer: Team IcoReleased: 2005

Few games can ever really be described as solemn, but those of you that have experienced this legendary trò chơi will know why we use it here. Taking down the majestic giants of Shadow Of The Colossus is a task that never feels quite right, as satisfying as it can be to work out how to vày it, & that mood is frequently reinforced with periods of silence and the ever-present desaturated màu sắc palette. The PS2 often struggles khổng lồ keep itself together while running this, so you may wish lớn look at the PS3 remaster and PS4 remake, but the impact here is undeniable.

2. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater


(Image credit: Konami)

Developer: KonamiReleased: 2004

After annoying some players by making Raiden the protagonist of Metal Gear Solid 2, this sequel set things right by shifting to the Sixties & following the more outwardly familiar character Naked Snake. Like the previous games in the series, Metal Gear Solid 3 emphasizes stealth over combat & is packed with clever touches – you can let a boss khủng literally die of old age – but differentiated itself by placing a heavier emphasis on survival, as you have lớn manage Snake’s hunger và tend to lớn injuries. The later Subsistence edition is improved with full camera control and a range of extras.

1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas


(Image credit: Rockstar)

Developer: Rockstar NorthReleased: 2004

Having dominated the open-world scene since Grand Theft tự động 3 took the series into 3D, San Andreas felt like a victory lap for Rockstar North. The early Nineties setting and fictional state of San Andreas (comprised of takes on Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas) was the ideal backdrop for a tale of corrupt cops và gang warfare. The trò chơi was a technical triumph too, with an enormous map, new gang warfare features, và extensive customization. Though it was recalled over the unused Hot Coffee minigame, San Andreas sold 17.33 million copies và is the console’s best-selling game.
