Excerpt: Half Life has been on of the most amazing, interesting and enjoyable first person shooters to make its way to the PS2. Before becoming a PS2 game, it won over 50 Game of the Year awards while taking its pride place as a PC game.
Pros: + Pros-Very good game play and graphics
Cons: - Cons-Difficulty could have done with toning down a bit
Excerpt: Diddy Kong Racing is not a good game. It's got lame characters, a frustrating control scheme, redundant 'level' objectives and an unbalanced system, all crammed into a kart racer that feels like it was made up of the scraps of Mario Kart 64 . The bad ones. So like I said, it's not a good game.
Excerpt: As gaming evolves, the line between movies and interactive media continues to blur. The earliest incarnations of videogames offered up nothing in the way of plot or story, offered no resolutions (the games often went on forever), and featured no characters.
Excerpt: Half-Life is a game about realistic 3D environments and true environmental sound. Everything from level design to character creation has been ported quite well from the PC to the PlayStation 2.
Excerpt: In another review that will help seal my fate as the least popular reviewer ever, I'm going to have to say I wasn't impressed with Half-Life, the supposedly stellar game of yore and such. I think I played a demo version of the game a few years ago on my PC, and at the time I thought it was ok.
Excerpt: Sad to say I wish I could be saying that I’m reviewing Half Life 2 but I’m not. It’s been a long while since that game has come onto the PC and yet we’re still waiting to see a PS2 (or at least a PS3) version of the game come out.
