5.0 out of 5 stars Great console, great game August 17, 2001
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
The PS2 is definetly the best console, and thats because of the games. You might hear a lot of talk from the xbox or gamecube but without good games they're lost. Right now the PS2 is building a great library of games: Gran Turismo 3, MGS2, Twisted Metal Black, Devil may cry, and the list goes on and on.
If you take GT3: is the best driving simulator ever created on any system, period. In this game the PS2 really show its power. The game has the most beautiful graphics ever created for a racing game, a soundtrack that keeps your adrenaline high, a huge selection of cars and tracks, and finally an awesome realism that will keep you playing this game for months and months.
You can't be wrong with this bundle it includes everthing you need and the price is right. Don't pay atention to the reviews that give only 1 star to the ps2, that are from some guy with a lot of time in hands and spends the whole day wrinting bad reviews for the ps2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let the facts speak for themselves August 19, 2001
By A Customer
The problem with most game system reviews today is that there's far more emotion than logic. Writers dwell upon why a particular system is their own favorite system, then give little more than lip service to what other gamers may think.
In an effort to counter these often senseless reviews, I present this: a compilation of system comparisons. This information is intended for people who have not yet purchased a system and are trying to determine which piece of hardware is best for them.
SEGA DREAMCAST [] Release date: September 9, 1999 [] Graphics support: 128 bits [] CPU: 200MHz [] Memory: 16MB main, 8MB video, 2MB sound [] Controller ports: 4 [] Extra features: Built-in 56k modem [] Game library: Low hundreds (stagnant)
PLAYSTATION 2 [] Release date: October 26, 2000 [] Graphics support: 128 bits [] CPU: 294MHz [] Memory: 32MB main, 4MB video, 2MB sound [] Controller ports: 2 [] Extra features: DVD player, PlayStation backward compatibility [] Game library: Low hundreds (growing) plus several hundred PS1 games (stagnant)
NINTENDO GAMECUBE [] Anticipated release date: November 5, 2001 [] Graphics support: 64 bits [] CPU: 485 MHz [] Memory: 40MB comprehensive [] Controller ports: 4 [] Extra features: Game Boy Advance systems can be used as GameCube controllers [] Game library: Estimated 15-20 at launch (growing)
MICROSOFT X-BOX [] Anticipated release date: November 8, 2001 [] Graphics support: Unconfirmed [] CPU: 733 MHz [] Memory: 64MB comprehensive [] Controller ports: 4 [] Extra features: Built-in online capabilities, hard drive will enable several new features [] Game library: Estimated 15-20 at launch (growing)
I greatly advise you to get out and try the systems -- all the systems -- before you purchase any of them. But parents, when in doubt, use the following logic: Which system are games on which Little Jimmy is always talking about? There you go; you have your answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid System, Solid Game August 29, 2001
I personally found the PS2 attractive because of its backward compatibility and the ability to play DVD's. I will say that the games are quite good for being such a young system. Also, the DVD playing is sufficient. Although the controls are awkward because you have to use the analog controllers, it still suffices as a DVD player. There is a third party remote, but I don't trust third party equipment. Thankfully, Sony has come out with their own remote which is the best one to get. As some have said, the vent is quite loud at times. The hum will be annoying at first esp. if you place it on a hard surface, but it's something you'll get used to.
Should you get the PS2? Yes. Should you get it now? Maybe. The price will definitely go down with time, and it'll be more affordable then. Also, there will be more games later this year. Also, for those who don't have a DVD player, this system will keep you entertained two-fold. As for the reading materials, it's stuff you can find online. Extra controller and memory card are necessary.
Now the X-Box and GameCube are out. For pure power and punch, the X-Box and GameCube provide the capability for better graphics. Are they noticeable? Yes. Are they that much more that the PS2 is useless? No. I've played games on both systems and although they look great, they're still behind on gameplay. As we all know, graphics only get you so far, and it's gameplay that makes a system last. It's possible that X-Box and GameCube will produce better games later this year like the PS2 did. It seems like it takes a year for any new system to get into the flow of things. Nonetheless, the PS2 is a sure thing and there is a wealth of great games out right now that will compete with anything else out there.
5 stars for the system. 5 stars for the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game! Very Cool System! November 18, 2001
If you purchased a bundle from Amazon, this would have to be the one to get. It gets you a years worth of magizines, 2 offical Sony Dual Shock Two Controllers, a game guide, An offical Sony 8mb Memory card, and Grand Tourismo 3! Thats an awsome deal.
MAGIZINES
The only problem, is the magizines, you don't get them when you order, they are sent monthly for one year. I would rather subscrobe to PSM, a great Playstation 2 magizine. They also don't soly focus on Sony items, but they mention X-BOX, Gamecube, and so forth.
OVERALL:C-
MEMORY CARD
This is a great item. It allows you to save and save alot. With 8mb of memory you can save around 20 files! I bought my system for Chirstmas 2000 and I still have only used around one third of the card. The card itself is very dependable. For example I have a friend who bought a MadCatz memory card and it borke down within a month.
OVERALL: A+
GAME AND GUIDE
The game is one of the best for the system. If you would truley like to show off your system, then pop this game right on in and your friends and family will truley be amazed. It feature eye poping visual effects and it incorperates real life phyics, making for a truley realistic game. Again this has got to be the best game for the PS2. The guide is also extremly handy, but it isn't needed, it only gives tips for the cars and different tracks.
OVERALL:A
CONTROLLER
This controller is probaly the best controller for any system. I mean once you hold on to it it feels almost like a glove. plus this package includes two of them so you can play GT3, with two players! The controllers also have a bulit in rumble feature, and it shakes everytime you bump into a wall. the drawback is that the conroller will develop white marks around the edges of the analog sticks.
