I'm half tempted to sell my copy of TF6.

Not a fan.

I have Strikers 1945 II on the PS1 and I wasn't impressed. The game itself wasn't that bad but the presentation was horrendous and beyond a joke. Some of the titles use the same text/designs that you can find in MS Office Wordart - I kid you not. I am 99.9% sure that that is how they made them.

I wouldn't be surprised. A lot of them are such low budget releases its like they are coming in a tesco value box!

It was published by Midas which explains it I think. They do publish some genuinely interesting and weird D3 Publisher games for PS2 but they're hard to find when most of their output are hideously cheap rip-offs of popular Western genres.

Conversely, based on what I've read, Robocop is worth half what you paid! :D

Robocop was indeed made out to be quite the turd in a Play magazine review. Come to think of it, I don't think I've even seen a copy of that game :lol:

I already had the original X-box version of the game which is a bit easier to find than the PS2 version...whilst not a classic, i wouldn't say its a turd of a game by any means...best Robocop game was Robocop 3 on the amiga IMO...

I didn't care much for PS2 before but I am now buying games for it now that I have a working one.
My steap dad must have a good 200-300 PS2 titles, boxed and unboxed.
I have 18, but I have a boxed complete cardboard SOTC so I better him in that area.

Okami was cheap everywhere not so long ago when the PS2 was just starting to wind down and there were still a few big games left on the shelves for it.

I remember most places selling it for under a tenner new such as Blockbuster where I got mine.

Still haven't played it though.
