Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance

Ah, amazing memories! This game was so cool. Had a rich storyline, superb gameplay, very cool graphics and the enemies looked great. The game has three playable characters: Dwarven warrior, Human archer and a Elven sorceress. Depending on the character u choose,the fighting style is different.

What made this game amazing for me is offcourse the co-up. If you look at the co-up in the game, hacking and slashing a way through the massive amount of enemies in Baldur's Gate is unlike any other game in terms of funfactor.

Conclusion: As far as co-up goes, this game is a must have on PS2!

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a multiplayer action role-playing game. Based on the lore of Lord of the Rings. 

The game has alot of cool features, you are able to summon Beleram, a massive bird that will gouge the eyes out of any foe. The demo at E3 showed alot of powerfull spells and ranged attacks. Disposing hordes of minions looks very cool and fun. U have a skill tree, were the player is able to put in points and learn diffrent spells.

The best thing for me is the co-up aspect of the game. If you enjoy co-up, guys keep a eye out for this one. Easy to get lost in all the epic titles later this year and i hope War of the North will stand tall.

Twisted Metal 2: World Tour

For me the Twisted Metal series are special. Amazing memories playing this hours and hours,every day with my brother and our friends!

The story is simple, every year alot of disturbed people meet for a Car-Battle in tweaked up cars. They battle each other  and the last person alive wins the grand price, a wish from Calypso. What i love about this game is that everyone does battle in different countrys from the fields in Holland with windmills to Paris and the Eiffle Tower.

Every character has his own special move, every car has his own armour, speed etc.. So every car is unique and all the characters have some twisted personalities. David Jaffe has a twisted creative mind himself and i love that on him, u can trace it back to every twisted metal game that he made. I personaly can't wait on Twisted Metal Ps3. That game is number 1 on my Ps3 list!

Destruction Derby

I played this game with my friends alot. The aim in the game is not to be first, but rather to get the most amount of points. How do you get those points? By wrecking the opponents' cars. And that is what makes Destruction Derby so cool.

Destruction Derby includes several game modes:
Wreckin' Racing , Stock Car Racing , Time Trail and Destruction Derby. The one that i played the most was offcourse Destruction Derby mode. It takes place not on a circuit but a large open area where you need to wreck the opponents cars as much as possible.

The Bowl :D!

Think about it smashing into other cars at high speed, and gaining from each crash.Psygnosis did a great job on this one in my book.

God Of War III.

God of War III is a action-adventure game in first-person/third-person playstyle. The player controls Kratos in Greek Mythology. The game is exclusive to Playstation 3 and was very well-recieved.

Kratos wields weapons and magic alike.Every weapon has an individual magic ability,upgrading the weapons also increases the power of magic.The game redefines "scale" in videogames, you fight against Titans that are larger then anything you ever seen in a videogame. The sequences on these huge creatures are jaw-dropping and i won't be forgetting them soon.

While size is a great aspect of the game, more then anything else, God of War has amazing visuals. Everything from  Kratos, the enemies, the weapons to the environment looks stunning. The game is M rated filled with gore, Blood, detached limbs it's all here. I remember the first time i fought Poseidon and looked at the timed-button action sequence it was brutal and violent but o'so fun to watch. As it is stated by the great Davif Jaffe  in 2007 'Hell on earth'.

Final Fantasy VII.

Final fantasy VII,  this is one of my favorite games ever created. Final Fantasy VII is one of the most popular games on the psx, it also seen a release on pc and psn.

Final Fantasy is a menu driven rpg (turn based) that allows the control of three characters in the party. Final Fantasy VII's skill system utilizes materia, magic which can be placed in slots on weapons and armour. Materia was a great element of the playstyle and allows the player to use various tactics suiting there personal style of play.Materia also contains summons,powerfull creatures that help out in battle.

A great feature to Final Fantasy VII is the Limit Break. Every character has his own special Limit Break that inflicts much more damage on an enemy than normal physical attacks. And those Limit Breaks are still amazing.


I loved all the characters Aeris, Cait Sith, Cid, Vincent, Yuffie, Sephiroth, Barret, Tifa, Cloud, Red XIII and alot more. Offcource Cloud and Sephiroth stand out, and the struggles they endure are a big part of the story.

Vandal Hearths.

A turn-based strategy game.

Ash Lambert - The game's hero, a man that strives for justice.

Ash and his companions battle out on a series of grid maps. With every character  having their own set of abilities(Tank, heal, archers, mages) they can all give a insane killing blow, blood litterly gushes out of your foes. What's also cool is that you can mold your character, for example you can promote a archer into a sniper or a healer to become a high-priest. The story alone makes this game a must for every rpg lover.


I played this game with my friends so much, absolutely one of the greatest games on psx, the gameplay is smooth. You can zoom in and out and rotate the map. This makes looking behind trees and mountains very easy to do. Accessible game thats fun to play.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is the name of the new game that takes place in the universe of Resident Evil 2 and 3 at the time of the initial outbreak of the T-Virus. Players assume the role of an Umbrella Security soldier whose job it is to wipe out all the evidence of the outbreak. Take control of six playable characters and each has his own specialties.

Resident Evil is a title that wants to try something different. Its a mix with action and horror and I look forward to this game and all the co-op goodness.
