    Can anyone suggest a really good game that fits the above genre on the PS2?:lease:

    I've ordered a component cable so my son can hook up his PS2 to the plasma/surround system and I'd like a fast-moving action/shoot 'em up that not only is great to play but has excellent graphics and sound too - I'm assuming such a title exists?

    A friend did mention a recent Vietnam based game (title escapes me) but aside from this my PS2 games knowledge is poor to say the least so your help would be much appreciated :thumbsup:

    Conflict Vietnam is probably the game that your friend mention, but unfortunately its not very good, Conflict Desert Storm 1&2 on the other hand are good thou.

    There was a major release from Sony at christmas called KillZone that was hyped up to be a Halo-beater but when released it didn't live up to teh hype but is still 'quite' good and is a bit of a looker graphics wise, so you may want to check that out if you find it cheap, but for a good new game Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2 is probaly the pick of the bunch, it looks and sounds great, even on the ps2!

    Thanks for the info iamtheone, sounds like Ghost Recon is the one to go for. Will check out reviews/prices of it and also KillZone.

    Thanks again, any other opinions would be appreciated.

    Watch out for Killzone, there was a massive amount of hype around it - Ps2's Halo Killer etc. and some of the reviews will be based upon that :rolleyes:

    The demo I played was pretty average and while it looks quite nice it has bad popup on buildings etc.

    Needless to say, I didn't buy it :D

    If Ghost Recon is anything like the PC version then this would be a good bet.

    Rez is superb, in a different vein but will be impossible to find new, I'd imagine.

    Thanks for that, checking online reviews about Ghost Recon 2 and it does sound like exactly the thing I need!

    Will avoid KillZone now & keep eyes open for Desert Storm & Rez - Resident Evil?

    EDIT: Just ordered Ghost Recon 2 off Play, thanks for your advice!
