Now Playing: May 10-16, 2009


We've got mixed feelings about highlighting a PS2 game this week. On the one hand, it's remarkable that a 9-year-old platform is still producing notable games. On the other ... it's a shame our current systems aren't delivering more noteworthy releases. There's always next week, we suppose.
