John Woo’s Stranglehold

2gb ram pc games

System requirements

  • OPERATING SYSTEM:  Windows XP SP2 / Vista
  • PROCESSOR: Dual Core Processor
  • RAM: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia 7800 or higher / ATI x1300 or higher
  • Hard Drive: 15 GB or more free space.

A game with parkour-based shooting mechanics like MAX Payne and total overdose will make your childhood memories come back. Now you can not find any modern games with parkour-based shooting mechanics but at least there are a few that you can play and have a fun time with.

This game was released back in 2007 but the visuals of the game are still appealing. This game was made in unreal engine 3 so, its graphics are undoubtedly better than most games released in 2007. John Woo’s movies inspired Rockstar games to make the parkour-based shooting game “Max Payne”.

The gameplay is fun and you can take cover anytime you need but the game wants you to play more stylishly so most of the covers you take get destroyed in just a few seconds. You earn stars for the stylish kills which increases your combo and the higher the combo means the higher the stars you earn.

Earning stars fill up your tequila bomb gauge which allows you to use tequila bombs and energy moves at any time. You unlock these abilities as you progress in the story. The difficulty of the game is very easy at the starting levels of the game. But as the game progresses the difficulty increases a lot and your abilities will be a lifesaver so use them wisely.

LA Noire

games for 2gb ram pc

System requirements

  • OPERATING SYSTEM:  Windows 7
  • PROCESSOR: Intel CPUs – Dual Core 2.2 GHz to Quad Core 3.2GHz; AMD CPUS – Dual Core 2.4Ghz to Quad Core 3.2Ghz; 
  • RAM: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 512MB to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1536MB or Radeon HD3000 512MB to Radeon HD 6850 1024MB
  • Hard Drive: 16 GB or more free space.

An open-world game where you play as Cole Phelps, an army veteran that works for the LA Police department. The game is set in 1948 and you being the police have to solve some cases but can make the wrong decisions and arrest the wrong person if you do not focus on the interrogations.

Interrogation with the suspect can provide you with a very valuable piece of information but watch out for your response. You have three options when interrogating, either ask like a good cop or a bad cop or accuse the person. The first option means they are telling the truth and you want to continue without making your suspect uneasy. The second option means you believe they are possibly lying and the third option means they are definitely lying. Choosing the wrong option can hinder your progress.

You could easily spot the liars from their body language. A little hint search for signs that someone’s lying on google and use them in the game(could make you a better detective). The playable character tries to always follow the orders and the flashbacks will tell you why. You can also kill a suspect while catching them and that will again make your investigation go downhill.

Ultimate Spider-Man

2 gb ram pc games

System requirements

  • OPERATING SYSTEM:  Windows XP / Windows Vista/ Windows 7
  • PROCESSOR: 1.2 GHz Pentium III or Athon equivalent
  • RAM: 256 MB 
  • Graphics Card: DirectX 9.0c compliant 64 MB video card(NVIDIA GeForce2+ / ATI Radeon 7500+)
  • Hard Drive: 2 GB or more free space.

Ultimate Spider-Man is an open-world game that uses a unique comic art style to tell its story. Every time new characters are introduced or the story progresses, you see all those cutscenes like in pages of a comic book that shows a few animations and flips to the next page. The character design and the combat are so good that you might never want to stop playing the game even after you have finished the story.

There are many unlockable characters and costumes in the game. You can even play as a villain and it’s quite fun. I want you to avoid the spoilers and I suggest you to play this game if you have not, as it is one of the best spiderman games of all time.

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game

best 2 gb ram pc games

System requirements

  • OPERATING SYSTEM:  Microsoft Windows 7 / XP SP3
  • PROCESSOR: 2.7 GHz Intel Pentium 4 class or AMD Athlon or equivalent processor.
  • RAM: 2 GB 
  • Graphics Card: 256 MB 3D video card supporting Shaders 3.0 (NVIDIA 8800 GT or higher, ATI Radeon HD 3870 or higher)
  • Hard Drive: 8 GB or more free space.

Lego Games allow you to play co-op on a single PC and even on a single keyboard without any lags but your PC can get overheated if you have 1 GB or less RAM. The Lego Pirates of the Caribbean does not feature any dialogues or subtitles but you can easily find out what’s happening in the game using storyboard-esque animation.

The story of the game is the same as the movies but with slight changes and some scenes removed. My favourite character is jack sparrow, he uses his compass to find hidden objects and I like his walking style more than anything else in the game. Will turner can throw his axes which is pretty much fun. Other popular characters almost seem similar to each other in terms of abilities and fighting style.

The cutscenes are great but the characters act kind of childish sometimes. You break stuff, find stuff or build stuff like all other lego games, that is what you will do most of the time. Well, it’s what lego does. Like most of the lego games it is an E (ESRB everyone) rated game there is almost no violence in it or it is toned down.  

Rogue Trooper

2 gb ram pc games

System requirements

  • OPERATING SYSTEM:  Windows XP SP2/ Windows Vista/ Windows 7
  • PROCESSOR: 1.5 GHz Pentium 4/Athlon XP or better
  • RAM: 256 MB 
  • Graphics Card: DirectX 9.0c-compatible 64MB 3D Accelerated Card supporting v1.1 pixel and vertex shaders (NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti+ /ATI Radeon 8500+ [Intel 915g with a 2.4 GHz processor])
  • Hard Drive: 3 GB or more free space.

Rogue Trooper is a third-person shooter where you control a buffed up soldier named rogue. The story is timed in the year 2080 on the planet new earth which looks like post-apocalyptic Earth. The new Earth is stuck between the gravitational pull of two suns and a black hole.

The gameplay of the game is amazing you can use your gun as a torrent that you can place at a place and kills all the enemies in the range. Shoot the gas cylinder of the enemies and see them fly off and blow up. Buy stuff any time in the game and no need to worry about ammo or med packs going out. You can play the stealthy way or classic cover-based shooter. Silencer, Knife and sometimes hologram and torrent help a bit in making your playstyle way better.

The redux version of the game requires a 64-bit Operating system so to be on the safe side you should download a non-redux version.

Trine 2

games for 2 gb ram pc

System requirements

  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 8 / 7 / Vista / XP
  • PROCESSOR: 2.0 GHz CPU (Dual Core recommended)
  • RAM: 1 GB 
  • Graphics Card: ATi Radeon HD 2400 or NVIDIA GeForce 7600 or better (Shader Model 3.0 needs to be supported)
  • Hard Drive: 4.5 GB or more free space.

Trine 2 features 3D looking graphics on a 2D plane in a fantasy world. The game has three characters that have unique abilities. A thief with a bow, a knight with a Sword and Shield, and a wizard with magical powers, all of them can be switched at will, transform into the knight to kill a goblin with a sword or use the archer to kill them from long distance or transform into the wizard to throw an object on the goblins and kill most of them at once, all up to you but the game is more about puzzle solving and less about fighting.

The visuals of the game are so good. Almost everything you see shines and looks so beautiful. Most of the time you will some interesting thing happening in the background. You almost get eaten by a giant frog in the game(not a spoiler just some fun stuff). The coop of the game feels better than the single-player mode. So, get some friends aboard.

  • Graphics Card: Shader 3.0 or better 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600GT / ATI Radeon® X1950Pro or better
  • Hard Drive: 12 GB or more free space.

There is no need to introduce call of duty games so let’s get to the story and gameplay. With the unbelievable plot twists, the story becomes unpredictable but is a great one. You are captured and interrogated for some information that you can’t remember. You get flashbacks for most of the story and the story is all about those flashbacks.

You get weapons like a flamethrower, RPG etc. in the game but they are not what make this make fun your gameplay style does. As a newbie, you might use a sniper more than any other weapon (that’s what I used to do to survive the game as a newbie)But now I use Assault Rifles more than any other weapon in the game.

War is on a mission to clear his name and uncover the truth behind this crime. This game was developed by Vigil Games. Vigil games were sold in an auction due to the bankruptcy and now Gunfire Games develops Darksiders games, kind of sad right but the new games(Darksiders 3) are good enough.

There are some ex-employees of vigil games working in gunfire games, just a fun fact.

It is fighting game developed by Capcom. The game features 50 characters (25 from Capcom and 25 from marvel). The story seems like a filler and there is no character development but the gameplay is great there is nothing more fun than playing a fighting game in multiplayer mode.

At the end of the game, you get to know some background story of the characters in comic style and it is so predictable. Even the menu of the game is comic-like.

Note: If you do not have a 64 bit OS you can play Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (32 bit )
