If you have a pretty powerful Android device and would like to play some old games from the PS2, you may be able to do just that.
The Google Play Store has a PlayStation 2 emulator that you can download and use – giving you the ability to play PS2 games that were available several years ago. The only drawback is that many titles are not yet optimized for the app, but it may not be much longer before they are. Thus, you’ll soon be able to play your favorite PS2 games on any Android device.
What Games Will Work With A PS2 Emulator
You can assist the PS2 Emulator developers by making them aware of bugs and problems you come across as you play PS2 games on the device. Some of the current games that can be played with the Emulator include:
- Crash Bandicoot
- Crash Team Racing: CTR
- Dino Crisis
- Driver 2
- Final Fantasy VII
- Gran Turismo
- Metal Gear Solid
- Resident Evil 2
- Tekken 3
- Tomb Raider III
Why Some Games Don’t Work and How To Address The Issue
It’s important you understand that if you own an older Android device, you may not be able to use the emulator to run all the games. You may also notice that the emulator won’t work at all with the older Android device.
For the moment, the app doesn’t have all the games added to it, which means you may have to turn some PS2 games you on CD into .ISO files. You’ll then need to copy those to an SD card. Once you do that, the .ISO file needs to be uploaded onto the Emulator, and you can start playing the game on the Android device.
