Hardest Games to Finish on the Playstation 2

The Top Ten
1 Jak II

I have never, in my life, been able to beat this game without using cheats or exploits. For 10 grueling years I have been stuck in a cycle of playing this game, getting stuck, and then throwing it to the wayside for a couple of years only to pick it back up and get only ever so slightly further before I get stuck again. The day that I finally conquer this game will be the day that I find inner piece, align my chakras, open my third eye, and become one with the cosmos of tranquility. Oh, and there's also Hero Mode :/.

2 Devil May Cry 3

Hardest Ps2 game I've played. It requires you getting a lot of orbs, & using them to power up, enhance, & purchase holy waters, vital stars, Devil stars, etc.

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!

This needs to be higher this is the only game that had to be realeased twice! The second versoin was way easier just come on this needs to be number one!

3 Resident Evil 4

Tell me about it. Pro difficulty sucks to try to beat.

4 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

5 Black

The last mission (in black ops dificulty) it's just impossible... quite long, the enemies with shields are immortals and they keep come from somewhere I didn't find yet...

6 Gran Turismo 4
7 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.

Getting S Rank on the final level on hardest difficulty is a struggle for the ages.

8 God of War 2
9 Final Fantasy 12

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

10 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
The Contenders
11 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater
12 Time Splitters
13 Kingdom Hearts 2
14 Need for Speed Carbon
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.

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

16 Fatal Frame 2
17 Fatal Frame III: The Tormented
18 Prince of Persia 2 Warrior Within
19 Devil May Cry

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

20 Guitar Hero 2
21 Alone in the Dark
22 Maximo: Ghosts to Glory

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.

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

23 Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando
24 Manhunt
25 Twisted Metal: Black

Not the hardest game in the world but frustrating due to the fact AI seemingly never attack eachother. Making the deathmatch tournament name a little stupid considering I have had 2 enemies sit and wait for me and the most damage one did was maybe a missiles worth. Overall the bosses are ridiculously simple and easy.
