Gamers looking for a fresh experience may just want to check out Tecmo’s upcoming PS2 exclusive title, Trapt. The game promises to deviate a bit from the norm by offering an interesting premise: killing enemies by setting up deadly traps inside a dark castle.

Jak X: Combat Racer

Still coming strong and keeping things fresh on the PS2 is the odd couple Jak and Daxter. In this upcoming fourth release for the franchise, time is of the essence.
