The sequel of MGS was hotly anticipated, as it could deliver the formula of stealth gameplay with emotional cinematic cutscenes without the severe limitations of PS1's hardware. MGS2 seems to be exactly that at first glance, a sequel with better graphics and refined gameplay. However as the game progresses its true nature unfolds as a game more interested in the nature of sequels and media consumption than just being a good conventional sequel. As such, make sure to play MGS1 first before this.

The first entry to the long running series, FF1 manages to do so much with so little hardware power. You have a very large open world set in FF's trademark pseudo steampunk settings. The battle system is simple yet provides enough options to be engaging. The story is charming with few twists and turns to keep you guessing. 2 things to keep in mind: The NES game unlike newer releases is very buggy, and the class selection at the start of the game has a fundamental effect on the game's difficulty.

EP2 was to be a mid-point entry in the episodic follow-up to Half-Life 2. The episodes were an evolution of Half-Life 2's core gameplay, and EP2 introduces more content and gameplay variety compared to EP1, including driving, gravity gun, combat sections both solemn and bombastic, and two new unique enemy types. Unfortunately the entirety of the episode is set in one location which can get monotonous, and the fact that Episode 3 was never released puts a damper on the enjoyability of the story.
Unreal Tournament 2004

SP Review: The campaign has a team management system, allowing you to scout and hire players for your teams. This adds a bit of strategic feel and consistency between matches which would otherwise just be random bot matches. Unfortunately, some of the UT2K4's newly introduced modes, including the massively popular "Onslaught", are not included in the campaign. However with the addition of Instant action and online matches UT2K4 is the most complete arena shooter available.

Fantastic Game. Nice atmosphere, responsive controls, cool armors. Great game and level design overall. Minimal storytelling works great. Starts very difficult and might put some people off due to no in game tutorials, for example the stats are never explained. There are some areas where I felt were impossible to go through without referring to wiki or game guides.
