"Extensive Game Selection; Overall: Great Entertainment Machine"3.5 starson by LiQuiD_FuSioN
Pros: Extensive Game Library, Plays PS1 Games, DVD Capabilities
Cons: Low Detail Graphics, Load Times are Long
Summary: The PS2 swept the gaming world when it came out. It was the first system to push the envelope for higher 3D performance and it remained one of the top consoles for a half the decade. Since the PS2 has been around for a long time, no real updates have been made,.. the Gamecube and XBox reign supreme in visual quality because they were releasesd afterwards.
Still, the PS2 offers tons of hits, like GT4, the whole Grand Theft Auto series, and the Final Fantasy franchise which lured me in to buying the PS2 in the first place!
The PS2 gets my "7" because it's good for the time being, because Sony is planning on releasing the PS3 in the future. The new models are now slimmed down, which makes this a cooler purchase.
If you're demanding higher detailed graphics, and have the money, choose the new Xbox at the moment. If you want some quick entertainment and want a huge collection of games, get the PS2. It's a matter of choice!
