Best PlayStation 2 Games for Your Emulator

After the PlayStation 2 was discontinued, various new emulators were released for PS2 gaming. Before these games were only run on your favorite console, but now you can enjoy them on our modern device using a PS2 emulator compatible with your system. In today’s article, we bring the hottest list of the PS2 games that you might love to play with your emulator.

  • To be able to play any of the titles listed below with your emulator, get the corresponding PS2 game download and put it into the emulator you’re using. Note that emulator games are called ROMs, or ISOs. So, when looking for a specific game, make sure to download the ISO files that contain the image of the chosen game. If you don’t have an emulator available, why not try a free online game, such Drift Hunters?

#1 Over the Hedge

Starting off with number one, we have Over the Hedge. It’s a typical 3D adventure game allowing you to explore and interact with plenty of all-new locations. You’ll be sneaking through backyards and human homes in search of useful items wherewith you can make your log more comfortable. But soon you learn that humans aren’t the most hospitable creatures in the world, especially when you find yourself trapped and attacked during your quest. That’s where pick-up weapons come in handy. You can avail yourself of plungers, boomerangs, bubble shooter, toy ball launcher, and others and use them to protect yourself throughout the game.

#2 Ghostbusters: The Video Game

Who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! Ghostbusters: The Video Game is an action-adventure game based on the legendary Ghostbusters franchise much loved by millions of people globally. The Video Game features elements of a typical first-person shooter, but instead of using a traditional gun, players are equipped with a proton pack, a laser beam serving as a powerful weapon, and a famous ghost trap to fight and capture ghosts. In addition, you can explore the environments of each level, seeking out paranormal activities and ghosts either alone or with up to all four of the other ghostbusters.

#3 Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner

If you’re a fan of sophisticated Japanese role-playing titles, you should definitely take a closer look at Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner. It revolves around the exploits of the hero known as Raidou, who is 14th in the long line of renowned devil summoners. Now one aspect that helps the adventure stand out is the time period in which it’s set. The game takes place during the early 1900s and sees the main character and his partner, a lazy detective, investigating a series of unusual demon uprisings. Like most RPGs, the battle system is a huge part of the overall experience. And unlike the previous entries, this time around the events are presented in real time. 

#4 Raiden III

The Raiden series has seen many releases over the years. Starting way back in 1990, it has never been at the forefront when it comes to shooters. It’s always offered a rather generic approach to the popular genre and never quite managed to stand out amongst the sea of competitors on the market. Nevertheless, lots of fans of classic shooters find this iteration quite successful and worth playing. Indeed, the gameplay is quite solid, and it provides a competent experience that will likely satisfy players. Raiden III seems to go back to its roots and offers a no-frills approach, with your ship possessing weapons to help deal with the onslaught of enemies. And there is more to the game that can pleasantly surprise you.

#5 Kuon

If you’re a fan of survival horrors, set your sights on downloading the Kuon ROM for your emulator. Kuon revolved around the demon-infested manor. The player is tasked with exploring the hostile location and getting to the bottom of what really has happened. Largely split up into three separate phases, with the third being available once you’ve completed the previous two. Although the story at first may appear quite clichéd and bland, it quickly becomes rather engaging, original, and totally engrossing. Visually, Kuon is also quite impressive. The entire adventure will manage to draw you into its creepy and dark tone and keep you on your toes till the end.
