In a world where everything was changed by a comet and factions are warring against each other, you are dropped into the middle of it with nothing but the clothes on your back. Your own people, the Albs of Xacor, shot you down and left you for dead. To add insult to injury, someone has robbed you of your armor and weapons and left you with nothing but some clothing. You have to find the thief and survive in a part of the world that you don’t even know. You are Jax, an outcast and somehow you must survive.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is easier than the Tomb Raider games from the PSone games. This game is better than the movie. The movie wasn’t that great, but not bad either. This game is about a prince has magic dagger that is the key to unlock the sands of time. The sands of time did change some people into a sand demons. This game has easy controls, rewind time to fix your mistakes, and pretty good combat system. I like the controls much better than TR games on the PSone. The original TR game had painful control and you to stress. In this game, you can say goodbye to that. This game will a little bit, but not as bad. In this game, you can rewind time. If you fall off the cliff or make a wrong turn. you don’t have to start all over. You only have the number of times you can rewind, but use them wisely. The combat system does remind me of the Assassin’s Creed games, but this game came out before Assassin’s Creed did, and it is the same developers.

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft is the most painful and hardest game that I ever played. This game is more then Dark Souls. This game is like PS3 game Uncharted, but in the 1990s. This was before Uncharted. In this game, you have to find a strange ancient meteorite that crashed millions years ago. Lara is on her quest to find this meteorite. The first level was hard at first, when I figured things out I got used to it. After the first level, the game will get hard later on.

I hate the island in the South Pacific. That was most frustrating levels in that game. First you got look everywhere for a door or a key, then I had jump big giant leaves to go to plain crash, and finally, not least, jumping in the river and get eaten by piranhas! The graphics has changed from the first two games, but has some great texture and details.

Mass Effect 2 is one of best Bioware game and one of EA best titles. The story two years later after Shepard got killed by the Collectors and came back from the dead by Cerberus, In the first Mass Effect game, Cerberus try to kill Shepard, but Cerberus wants to stop the Collectors. The Collectors are using humans for experiment and making the Reapers with them. That is messed up.

007: Agent Under Fire is a good game for the PS2. This game is the first Bond game for PS2 and this game uses the Quake III engine. There 3 problems with this game. #1 is Bond himself, #2 is the controls, and #3 is the fact of the sound of the game.

The first problem was Bond isn’t like the other ones from the movies. This one looks like he came out of one the Superman and he doesn’t sound like Bond himself. When you play the game, he looks Superman without his powers. I don’t know this voice actor, but he does did a okay job for Bond. Problem #2 is the controls run like the Bond game from the N64. I don’t know why EA had to put old controls on this game. For N64 yes, but for PS2, no. You can change the controls in this game. I had found the controls that look like those from Halo. So, I used it instead, and it helped. Now for problem #3. Problem #3 is the fact if you do something cool, you get to hear the theme song over and over again. It was really annoying. I didn’t turn it off, but you deal with it.
