A Year of Hotness

Why 2006 could be PS2's best year yet

Rogue Galaxy

Everyone loves pirates, and almost everyone loves spaceships, so trust Dark Cloud creator Level 5 to make the logical connection: pirates in space.

Level 5's latest action-RPG will let you swashbuckle your way across a variety of planets, teaming up with robots, cats, space pirates and tribal princesses. Don't look forward to Galaxy for a deep story: like the visuals, it's cartoon-simple, and better for it.

Expect an American release later in 2006.
