The lights are on
Licensed games are frequently of dubious quality, and the Playstation 2 certainly wasn't immune to this long-standing tradition. While many licensed games are based on children's shows or family-friendly movies, the PS2 played host to several titles based on more adult properties. We received awful-to-mediocre treatments of Reservoir Dogs, 24, Scarface, and this week's Replay...The Sopranos.

Guess I'll just wait for the upload to YouTube because the GI player won't even show up on the screen for me...
Hilarious episode, thanks guys. Those combat moves in the roulette looked freaking sweet!! Please someone remake a game like that or something, damn.
Great Replay, the Sopranos game looked pretty awful. The Aeon Flux looked alittle interesting. Can't wait for more Blue Stinger, I want more!
Adventures in Licensed Gaming. To the credit of both developers, neither game comes off as a train wreck. In fact, I could see a die-hard fan of either IP revisiting these for fun, but probably not worth it for anyone else.
As a result, there isn't a so-bad-its-good MST3K vibe to this episode, but it was entertaining none the less. I enjoyed the riffs on American Gladiators and The Running Man, right in my wheelhouse.
This reminds me of that 24 game
I wish you guys would go back to playing games that someone would actually be interested in.
I would totally play that Aeon Flux game. Some of the gunplay looked rough and some of the camera angles were a bit wonky but everything else looked pretty fun. I'd like to see it maybe hit PSN under PS2 classics, though I doubt it will.
