PS2 game recommendation: Gift for fiance =)

Discussion in 'Archived Threads 2001-2004' started by Anthony_Gomez, Sep 25, 2002.

  1. I don't play PS2 that much, but my fiance does....actually, we just got PS2 (used to have PS1).

    The game is a suprise for her, but I don't know what to look for.

    Here are the games that we have that she REALLY likes:

    ALL of the tomb raider games
    Legacy of Cain (likes this the best of the series)
    Soul Reaver
    Blood Omen 2
    Odd World

    a computer game that she currently plays: American McGee's Alice


    There are other games she likes, but these are her favorites. Any recommendations for PS2 that you think she might like?

    Devil may Cry....Fantastic game and it's now a greatest hit. So it's only 19.99!
     
  3. Thanks. I'll look into it. Any other suggestions?

    Does it have to be out now? The next Tomb Raider game is coming out in Nov. that game is gonna rule. [​IMG] Of course I'm a Tomb Raider freak, so don't mind me, lol. Why not pick her up Soul Reaver 2, since she liked the others, this seems like a no brainer. Let's see Jack and Daxter might be a good pick up, also a greatest hits, Onimusha and Onimusha 2 might also might suit her prefrences.

    There's a new PS2 Sould Reaver as well as a new Legacy of Kain - those seem like the obvious choices.

    Kingdom Hearts is my wife's new favorite. It's real time fighting, not turn-based, so it's closer to an action game than an FF type RPG.

    Looking at how here tastes are, I second the recommedation for Devil May Cry. An amazing game, with only a few minor drawbacks. (Camera! Loved fighting the bosses only to have the camera switch to a view where he is not visible!) The final boss fight in this game is one of my favorites too.
    If she is into the obscure stuff, or different things, try Adventures of Cookie and Cream. A strange game with one of the oddest control schemes ever. A game only for the adventerous!
    Silent Hill 2 is also a good idea.

    There are other games that I love and would recommend(The drug that is Tony Hawk, metal gear, Timesplitters)but judging by her tastes, my first suggestions seem more valid.

    ICO (kinda short but thoroughly compelling)
    Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance (play together, it rocks)
    Drakan (female lead RPG with lots of exploring)
    Summoner 2 (female lead RPG with lots of exploring)

    All excellent titles.

    Also may want to consider:
    Sly Cooper
    Maximo
    Final Fantasy X
    Rayman 2
    Jak and Dexter
    Mark of Kri

    OOOOO forgot about ICO. I strongly recommend that one for her. One of the most underated games this past year.
