Excerpt: EA arguably had some of the best PlayStation 2 games at launch, and across multiple genres. X Squad is a cool Action game in the spirit of Syphon Filter or Metal Gear Solid, but with less in its favor. Like every EA game in PS2's lineup right now, X Squad looks like a million bucks. For a mission-based shooter set within a research facility in the year 2037, you can imagine what graphical elements really count. Lighting, weapons, level and character design..
Excerpt: X-Squad is essentially syphon filter run through a graphic overhaul and prettied up more than Jennifer Lopez at an interview. The game is set arbitrarily in the year 2037. You are the leader of 'X-Squad', Ash, and your initial objective is to find out what happened to a research facility which has recently ceased communication. What's this? There is something more than saving a research facility?!.
