This review is from: PlayStation 2 Console Slim - Black (Video Game)
I got this console off of amazon earlier this year, I had never had a gaming console before so I used our PC, I'm 13 by the way. I thought this would be a great place to start,so I ordered it. When it got here,my younger brother (he's 12)and I unboxed it and set it up. We bought it along with a second controller, an 8MB memory card,and 4 games. It all totaled about $150. I'll start off with the console:
The console itself is awesome, I still can't believe how thin it is! This is perfect if you don't have much room in your entertainment center like us. It plays games great and runs very smooth. I have not tried DVDs or CDs in it so I don't know how it plays them. The graphics are good, but you're obviously not going to get xbox 360 graphics but they are still great. I have played multi player on Star Wars Battlefront 2 , which is quite good, although I read a lot of games don't have servers running for them anymore. Multiplayer was very easy to set up, no xbox live membership no nothing, all we had to do was plug an ethernet cable in to our DSL box and into the back of the console, set a couple things up on the game and we were playing online. The model I recived is SCPH 90001 which is not compatable with
certain accessories like the horizontal stand so just make sure you don't buy things that are not compatible with it.
The controller is very nice and quite durable, it's fallen off the couch onto the floor a couple times but still works fine. I like the feel of it a lot and it fits the hand great. I have no complaints about anything.
Some people don't think somthing thats more than a decade old is worth $99 but I beg to differ; this version isn't that old, it's the slim version and the newest version of the slim. I think The fact that it's still alive after a decade also means that it's still a great system. Another thing is that if you like the games on this, you have to have a PS2 because the PS3s that have backwards compatability are no longer manufactured. The PS2 has an enormous library of games that goes into the thousands, and some great titles that aren't on other platforms. If you are a Star Wars nerd like me than you will love the PS2 because it is Star Wars HQ! It's also good if you like the lego video games, there's Lego Star Wars 1 and 2, Lego Indiana Jones, and Lego Batman. There are actually only 3 consoles ahead of it right now, so in my opinion, that's not too shabby. This Console is great for a casual gamer who plays single player or two player, but of course, if your a big time gamer with a lot of cash who needs the latest console with the best graphics and has to play online, than this is not for you. I think this is a great console with a lot of great features and games...SO GO OUT AND BUY ONE NOW!!!!! >:)
