Hardest Games to Finish on the Playstation 2

The Top Ten

1 God of War

Have to disagree with most of the comments here...Any scrub can beat this game on easy. However on God difficulty, you are a walking glass cannon...Basically what I'm saying is without a solid health upgrade, almost any enemy one shot kills you. A true test of patience and a respectable game for gamers looking for a challenge. Also, as the top comment says, the moment after you beat Ares, prepare for the hardest section in the history of gaming (God difficulty). Very underrated, God mode easily takes it place among with the likes of Soulsborne games

God mode will eat you alive. Especially the last level where there are clones of kratos. IMPOSSIBLE

Challenge of the Gods will make you want to throw your controller at the T.V.. You have to do it all in one go, so if you turn off your PS2 or quit, you have to start all over. And the challenges are insane.

Lol... Only losers find this game tough... It maximum takes 12 hours to complete it. It's super easy though. THE TWO THRONES got the better of me I must say. But this is child's play though

2 Gran Turismo 4

it takes ages, I have only done 5. 7 and I have had the game for more than a year.

To finish this 100% you need dovote your life to this game, and much help from internet and B-spec

3 Kingdom Hearts 2

Kingdom hearts 2 it's my favorite game of all time, but if I have to say one thing that I don't like is that its too easy :/, even in proud mode

I've finished this at least 10 times.

4 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

I have beaten this game on expert multiple times. Either I am way to good at it, or the people that voted it are pussies. - Sojournes2112

Not hard at all - randomdutchguygaming

This is pretty good. - EliHbk

I beat the game but. I paid the game on easy and medium. It's a great game I enjoyed the game but it's a little bit hard for me when I first play the game. But for me it's easy but it's hard to beat Lou in medium but you know I got to deal with it 😎

5 Jak II

This game has a serious lack of checkpoints and seems to lack the usual "tutorial lands" like many tend to have. Right after the first section of the game you have this mission where you must jump over lasers while trying to dodge tank missiles within this extremely awkward camera angle and also jump on rotating platformers while jumping around trying to trick a ludicrously intelligent tank that seems capable of tracking your every thought and movement. Still a great game nonetheless.

I played the first episode which was pretty easy and right to the second, harder controls, hard missions right from the start, even when you are not at the mission you must not bump to the police because they are gonna to kill you and you have to wait until they stop, also it has lack of checkpoints and those metal heads are so powerful and hard to kill

I got caught on the part where you have to deliver eco stuff

Hard hard hard hard what else can I say about its difficulty although the story was amazing the difficulty spikes killed me

6 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater

You will die tryin on the diffuculty European extreme if you live in the EU - copkiller

7 God of War 2

Fully packed with the awesome challenges... Most difficult game I have ever played especially on Titan difficulty... It almost compels you to throw your controller on your T.V. screen... This game should have the 1st position.

This Game Is Should Be number 1 Very Hard Game But This Game Is fun

Really hard game

8 Devil May Cry 3

This should be at number one, I usually am not one to tell other people their opinions are invalid or that sort of thing, but realistically if you say anything other than this game you are wrong, the people on this site are ridiculous not to vote DMC3

ARE YOU KIDDING! The game that should be number 1 on this damn list should be Jak II. That game will kick your ass from start to finish.

I almost suicided myself because of this game

Easy on this game was pretty OK. then once you switched it to normal, things start to get crazy!. And PLEASE don't even talk about heaven or hell mode!

15 God Hand

God Hand is such a nice adventures and a very difficult game and should have topped this list, this is even more harder than god of war and god of war 2 and many others also and even this is the Hardest game I have ever seen, even my friends used to tell me that about how many times they had fought the boss but were still unable to defeat them. You people should also play it first and then rank it, after playing this game even you people will also think that this is the most difficult game of ps2. - TheExperimentAge

Even on easy a very hard game but not for the right reasons. You got the infamous Capcom fixed camera which does not do well in this sort of game. Combine that with not quite polished controls and what should be an amazingly fun game to play (yes I realize there is a lot of strategy in upgrading and knowing which move set to use. That isn't the problem) and it just turns into frustration and a slog to try to get through

This game is brutal. Even on normal mode it is much more difficult than god of war 1 and 2 on god and titan mode.

God hand is very adventures game and also hard game I have had ever seen

18 Alone in the Dark

Not Good Game I hate This Game This Is The Most Hatest Game I have Ever Played

19 Shinobi

Pretty difficult game overall, requires that you restart the entire level upon death, has an interesting tate system that deals with the amount of enemies you have slain in a row in a given amount of time, thus increasing your swords damage. One shotting bosses, getting triple SSS, all fun but pretty hard to master. Was never able to beat the last boss, recently started a play through a few years ago, one day I might finish him who knows.

20 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Not hard at all

21 Final Fantasy 12

Boy this game was a challenge but the Story is like Star Wars directed by Stanley Kubrick.

This game is also very difficult and especially it's hunts which were almost unbeatable and then we have to capture different espers which was very difficult and even before moving to a new place we have increase our level so much and after doing it also we were unable to defeat them all and defeating storm magicites was almost imposible in this game. - TheExperimentAge

22 Maximo: Ghosts to Glory

It's hard and unforgiving like it's grandad ghosts and goblins, but there's a lot of fun to be had

A tough game right from the very start. much like the other games in the Ghosts an Goblins series you only get hit twice in the whole game and to make matters worse enemies can flood the screen at any moment.

23 Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal

During gameplay you will come across a lot of enemies and most will be onto you at the same time, boss battles in this game are tougher than hell, like in Going Commando and your gonna need as many weapons as you can to survive, another good thing in this game like it's predecessor is the strafing, your always gonna be using that a lot to dodge enemy fire and shoot back; this is an EXTREMELY HARD! game people!

24 The Suffering 2

I have played almost all the games in that list, this one is the most insane, I only be able to finish in the normal dificulty, and take me a lot of time.

25 Devil May Cry

Relentless bosses and a small health gauge make for a difficult experience.

26 Viewtiful Joe
27 Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu
28 Guitar Hero Metallica

Stop saying Guitar Hero is hard. - Sojournes2112

29 Pimp My Ride
30 Gta Vice City

One mission you can't pass

31 Ghost Recon
32 Midnight Club 3
33 Manhunt
34 The Nightmare of Druaga: Fushigi no Dungeon

If anyone says they have beaten this game, they're a liar. It is, without a doubt, the most punishing game of all time. I don't say that lightly. If you don't believe it, pick it up, get really good at it, and just give it your best shot. You will not succeed.

35 Jak 3
36 Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando
37 Haunting Ground
38 Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

This game is apparently about 64 hours long! - SelfDestruct
