Help! Trying to choose a PS2 Game!

Postby Pacino86845 on Fri Dec 02, 2005 7:52 am

Hey guys,

here at work, we're trying to think of a game to get a colleague of ours as a gift, for the PS2... basically, after some research, I've narrowed it down to a few choices. If you could provide any feedback, I don't really know any of these games, and the guy who's going to get the game is a bit of a newb (but a really cool guy, nevertheless). Any help I could get would be, of course, greatly appreciated... right now I'm leaning a bit toward Prince of Persia, because I'm not sure about Battlefront 2 (any further opinions about this one would be extremely helpful).

If the guy likes the 80's then Grand Theft Auto: vice city (my nominee for best game ever). If not GTA:San Andreas is a good bet. Prince of Persia, is pretty darn good tho, I'm playing through the sands of time one right now and its got me seriously hooked. Never played the others so can't spk about them. Hope this helps.

That new Warriors game has a good rep. I know nothing about it though.

Resident Evil 4 is an amazing game Pacino. If I had not got it and someone gave me it as a gift, I would be extremely happy!

I have it on the Gamecube though, but I expect it is equally as good on the PS2..........

I don't own a PS2, nor do I know anything about the games listed. But I voted Kong out of habit.

Thanks for the feedback so far, folks... it looks pretty even across the board so far, I'll have to wait for a few more answers at least!

Here are the games currently halting work at my company....which, yes, is a video game company.

1) Guitar Hero
2) Shadow of the Colussus
3) Resident Evil 4

Those are my picks, from greatest to nearly as great. Get this man Guitar Hero! I swear upon my axe, this is an amazing game. Same with Shadow of the Colussus. He will thank you.
