Snoopy vs. The Red Baron – PS2

  • This is great game.
  • Imagine the combat from Rogue squaron or Crimson skies, but in a fun Peanuts world.
  • Graphics are clean and very peanutty.
  • Art is a combo of cell shaded 3D stuff and actual 2D peanuts stuff
  • The music is ok, but the VO is a bit lame. The actors are obviously not the same as from the cartoon show and it feels different.
  • The gameplay is solid with a good mix of combat and flying.
  • Missions are well varied from kill this to defend that!
  • Buy this game. You WILL have fun.

Oddworld, Stranger’s wrath –

  • 3rd person action game with FPS elements.
  • In the same universe as previous Oddworlds games
  • plays like many other action games.
  • Bounty enemies for cash to upgrade and catch bigger/ badder emenies.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition – PS2

  • To start I have never played on of these before. I’ve seen the first one played, but never done it myself.
  • This game as everybody knows is all about cool. This game covers cool, like a fat guy on a bicycle seat.
  • Graphics are very nice for the PS2. FMVs are pretty and full of humour.
  • The sound is well done, but the hard rock soundtrack is kind of annoying during the load screen… especially after you’ve died 3 or 4 times on a mission and it starts from the same spot.
  • Gameplay is the same old DMC fair: You fight hordes of spooky baddies using swords and guns in a multitude of high flying combos.
  • If you like 3rd person action (Final Fight updated) this is a great game. If you’re looking for a deeper story or something a bit more tactical this ain’t for you.
