Multiplayer games - local network PS2

Playing multiplayer games over local area network (LAN) is a somewhat forgotten form of multiplayer, which had its heyday in the 1990s when Internet cafes were extremely popular. In LAN, players don't need to connect via the Internet, because their computers or consoles are directly connected to each other (wirelessly or with the use of network cables). This form of multiplayer is usually chosen by people who get together in one place (called LAN parties).

FlatOut 2
FlatOut 2

Racing 30 June 2006

FlatOut 2 brings a continuation to a "brutal" racing game developed by Bugbear Entertainment. The original game combined regular racing competition with unlimited destruction - both cars and environmental objects could be damaged and / or destroyed. In FlatOut 2, the creators focused on extending the scope of mayhem the player witnesses, thus the only real challenge the player can encounter in this game constitutes of making it to the finish line in one piece. What's more, the crashes and car damage are visually even more impressive than in the original FlatOut, thanks to the improved graphics and an upgraded engine behind the in-game physics. The game offers 16 fully customizable cars, as well as 8 drivers differing in driving style and attitude towards opponents. FlatOut 2 brings both single player and multiplayer experience, for up to 8 players in the latter case. Additionally, Destruction Derbies were also included, similar to the original game. In Rag Doll events the player will "ski jump" or drive through fiery rings for example.

FIFA 11
FIFA 11

Sports 28 September 2010

Another installment in the soccer game series by EA Sports. Compared to its predecessor, FIFA 11 features many improvements. One of the biggest novelties is the Personality Plus system, which reflects the player's distinct characteristics in the pitch, making the difference between soccer stars and other players more apparent. The goalkeepers' behavior was also improved, as they estimate the ball's trajectory more realistically now and can be fooled by ricocheting during free kicks. Other improvements include upgraded animations of the players, i.e. during the goal celebration. FIFA 11 allows you to lead your team to victory in a single match or in a campaign-like manager mode. The game also features the Be A Pro mode, in which you take on the role of a given player and develop his skills. You can also compete against others in the online mode.

Red Faction II
Red Faction II

Action 15 October 2002

A sequel to a well-received FPS game developed by Volition. Red Faction II is set five years after the events depicted in the original game, when a civil war breaks out in the Commonwealth. The player assumes the role of Alias - an explosives expert belonging to a team of six super nanosoldiers. The protagonist joins a rebellion against Victor Sopot's totalitarian regime. In terms of mechanics, Red Faction II expands the patterns introduced in the first installment. The improved Geo-Mod engine responsible for environmental destruction is a characteristic feature of the game. What returns as well, is the opportunity to steer various vehicles, such as tanks, aircraft or submarines. When juxtaposed with the original Red Faction, the sequel brings a slightly less linear plot and the ending is dependent on the player's decisions. Apart from that, both the visuals and AI of the enemies were improved.
