Suikoden IV is the best out of them.

Kingdom Hearts 1 is good too.

Final Fantasy X marked Final Fantasy's fall from grace for me, but its still a decent game.


^ gotta agree with everything said here.
Personally if you're getting into PS2 JRPGs, pick up Dragon Quest VIII, best one on the console.


I already have Dragon Quest VIII :) I just didn't bring it home for christmas by some strange reason :P

Odin Sphere separates itself from FFX and Kingdom Hearts by having a narrative that's legitimately excellent in the context of the genre and the medium. Many different stories running in parallel, leading up to an Apocalyptic finish. Just great.

Save often, though, the game gets pretty tough.

What a shame, it's a great game.



I can't vouch for Odin Sphere but I hear that it's a lot like Vanillaware's more recent hack-n-slash 2D RPG Muramasa. And I can really recommend Muramasa (if you like 2D hack n slash). If you like 2D hack n slash, then definitely give Odin Sphere some consideration since you already own it.



I just popped in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, and by some strange reason, it lags!

Is this how the game looks, or is something strange with my game? The disc is mint and nice, so I really can't understand what is happening!

I would use your PS2 to play IMO the PSX's far superior library of JRPGs
