    Hi guys, I've been playing alot on my PS2 for the last couple of weeks and I would lile some recommendations on any action-beat-them-ups. For example, I was thinking of picking up "God of War". Any recommendations would be most helpful! :D

    The Devil May Cry series is good as well, if not difficult. Well, at least 1 and 3 were.


    You can get a box set with all 3 games in most stores for $30. That is a steal if you ask me.

    I also recomend Devil May Cry and God of War. Gungrave, and the sequel GunGrave: Overdose, were fun but theres not a lot of meat to them. They are pretty cheap going for about $10.

    I also say Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver (it's a PSone or Dreamcast game) and Legacy of Kain Defiance. Both are great action/puzzle games (Defiance being more action with some puzzles and Soul Reaver being more puzzle with some action) with an awsome story. Soul Reaver 2 and Blood Omen 2 were both average to mediocre at best so I'd avoid them and they're not really needed to know the story.

    I liked Psy-ops, not sure if you can still find it though. God of war is a good game too.

    Well, flat out action goes to BLACK, but it is more of a shooter but a good one. I enjoy it.

    For PURE action/adventure games, God of War, the upcoming God of War 2, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, The Suffering (VERY dark game), Beyond Good and Evil (HIGHLY recommended), and the True Crime games.

    One is a game that is impossible to put into an existing genre, and the other is an RPG.

    God of War is a bit easier. God Hand will brutally kick your ass on easy mode.
    God of War is an in-depth, big-budget game. God Hand doesnt have huge production values, and its basically an old-school beat em' up game gone 3D.

    Thanks for the reply as I've narrowed down my choices to these 2...but seriously is God Hand really that frustrating?!

    If you want action games so intense that they can break the very spirit of most gamers, check out Gradius V and Contra: Shattered Soldier. It doesn't get any more "action game" than that.

    God of War is one of the best games ever. It's probably the greatest and most epic action game I've ever played.
