    A textbook example of why one should never, EVER trust biased and in all likelihood rushed critics reviews. This is the absolute best game on PS2, PERIOD, and that's coming from someone who has only played a single player mode (I wasn't aware you could play online with PS2 at the time).

    Eh, as always... Chech reviews and critics and You`ll always skip a good game. Sometimes it`s hard to belive that`s not their job. xD
    This game is honestly one of the best experience You can get on PS2. If You like challanging games, like to test Your skills and memory... and above all You have a lot of patience and strong will - well, You gonna love this title.
    Trust me. I did.

    It's interesting, and a bit frustrating, to see a game with such a unique devotion to a single type of play.

    Problems with the camera and controls hold it back from mass appeal, and unless you have the broadband adapter, you're missing out on a large chunk of the experience. With that said, there's definitely enough here to for serious players to enjoy if they're willing to devote the time necessary to really dive into the game.
