Search for a PS2 RPG
« on: December 29, 2008, 06:52:44 pm »
My sister has finally moved in and with her comes a shiny new PS2 so I was figuring I'd get my hands on a new RPG game for it. Before any one says Kingdom Hearts, I have all of them and don't wan't to play them again. I did recently get valkyrie profile 2 for christmas, don't know if it's good but we will see.

So any one know of an awesome PS2 RPG that isn't easy or really short?


Bitte und Danke  ;)

Not sure whether or not it's easy or short but you may want to look into Persona 4.

I thought Tales of Legendia was pretty good.
Awesome soundtrack.

Dark Cloud 2 (don't worry about playing the first; it's irrelevant)
Rogue Galaxy
Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (hell, I thought it was hard; also, unrelated to the rest of the series)
Wild Arms 4, Wild Arms 5.. they don't relate to one another either.

Wow. I don't have that many RPGs.

Maybe try the Xenosaga series?

Ah, yes Xenosaga.

Awesome series. I highly recommend it.

Also, try the Shadow Hearts. The first installment isn't quite that great gameplay-wise, but it has a good amount of knowledge that would really help you understand the little things in the next two installments, just like how CoM helps you understand KH2 a lot more.


I did recently get valkyrie profile 2 for christmas, don't know if it's good but we will see.

Personally, it's one heck of an awesome game! Though, you do have to do a bit of power-leveling.

If you're into SRPGs you should check out Disgaea (if you can find a copy) or there is also Phantom Brave.

PS2s play PS1 games, Find and buy Final Fantasy tactics. One of the best RPGs ever.

Final Fantasy 10 is sacred.
