Great PS2 games that didnt come to UK

Post by DPrinny » Tue Aug 02, 2011 6:01 am

Just as the title says.
Are there any gems out there?
So far im kinda enjoying Virtual On Marz, but playing it on a PS2 pad seems wrong

Front Mission 4 on first place for me. But luckily at least it had a North American release.

Front Mission 5
also... not released outside Japan, but I've been able to play it thanks to a fan translation, fantastic work.

Two great games.

Didn't we also miss out on a SF III:Third Strike here? I'm pretty sure the only PAL releases came for the Dreamcast and the X-Box in some 'Anniversary Edition'.

A Japanese exclusive, Shadow Tower Abyss: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eNLVWS5umQ

The first game Shadow Tower on PS1 never made it over here either but did get an American release

Quite a baffling exclusion, especially since they went ahead and released the anniversary collection on Xbox but PS2 only got Hyper Street Fighter 2 and it had no save function.

Darkstalkers Collection and the Rumble Fish didn't make it over here, despite both being good fighting games.

Damn, how could I forget about that one, being a FROM Software game and all. It's a different take on the King's Field formula that spawn the marvelous Demon's Souls :)

Sengoku Basara X (cool 2D fighter) never got released here, same with Sengoku Basara 2.
The Sword of Beserk game for the PS2 was also Japanese only, its a really good action game.
Didn't the first Katamari Demachi game not get a UK release? (only America and Japan)
KOF 94 Rebout (high res remake of KOF 94) never saw a release outside of Japan. Not the best KOF game by a long shot but its still an ok port.

Yup, Katamari Damacy.

Raw Danger (PAL release was euro only I believe?)
Ar Tonelico (same as above?)
Gunstar Heroes Treasure Box
Initial D: Special Stage
Shutokou Battle 01
Wangan Midnight
The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match

Also, Chulip is supposed to be a good RPG.

Magic Pengel is supposed to be good too isn't it?
