Long time console game cheaters know about Code Breaker and its above average code support. Previous versions not withstanding, the Code Breaker has always enjoyed great support from it code-generating staff (formerly the GameShark Code Creators Club).As a cheat device, the Code Breaker is a no-nonsense kind of deal - it's disc only - and can go straight into your Playstation 2 right out of the box.
Like many cheat devices and programs available in the current market, Codebreaker uses the PS2's memory card to store new cheats you enter or download from its site. This is both a good and bad thing.The Good - Being sold 'disc only', Codebreaker's cost to manufacture is cut. The savings supposedly gets passed onto the consumer, so Codebreaker usually costs less than comparable cheat devices. Since there's no weird plastic thing to accompany the package, all you need to use cheats at a friend's house is just the disc and the memory card where you have your cheat codes saved to.The Bad - Being sold 'disc only', Codebreaker has to use your PS2 memory card's space to save any new codes that do not readily come with the disc. For you RPG gamers, this can be a problem with you constantly keeping an eye on the amount of codes you put in (or download) so as not to run out of room on your memory card.
For action gamers who are into more action oriented games, this is not much of a problem. Like all versions of Code Breaker, the disc does not come with its own dust jacket. This means the consumer must find a cover, jewel box, or jacket to store the Code Breaker disc when it is not in use.Codebreaker is a little more flexible than GameShark and Action Replay however. The current trend of cheat devices is something called 'planned obsolescence' - this is the situation when codes for newer cheat devices do not work on older devices (and vice versa).
In order for you to use codes for old games, you need the old version of the cheat program (good luck on EBay if you need to find one) while codes on newer games require the purchase of the updated version of the cheat program; not so with Codebreaker. Each version of Codebreaker is backswards compatible with earlier codes, so you can probably spend less money updating your cheat disc and simply buy a new version of Codebreaker when ever there is a major version upgrade. Game codes are click on or off using the X button.Navigating Codebreaker is fairly simple and easy, thanks to some built in shortcuts. Gamers with access to a USB keyboard will find that they can use the keyboard to quickly type in their cheats; the PS2 Analog Controller can also be used in conjunction with the keyboard, in case you forget which buttons are mapped where. On screen context help scrolls by constantly on the bottom of the screen, reminding you of what buttons do what function and where.
The L1 and R1 buttons allow you to navigate a line of code quickly and with good response. You will need a network adapter and a broadbanc connection for Code Breaker chat.The best thing about the Codebreaker however, is that it has a buffer that 'remembers' the last line of code you entered, making it easy to enter multiple line codes by changing a few values and digits instead of having to re-type the whole line of code.
This is one of the trademark abilities for all versions of Codebreaker, the other being some damn neat code support. For example, Codebreaker is the only cheat device that regularly include 'joker' codes that allow code effects to occur when certain buttons or combination of buttons are pressed. USB keyboards are supported; having one speeds up code entry dramatically.In addition to cheat codes, this version of Codebreaker has an integral device manager that allows you to manipulate your data on a memory card or a USB flash device.
For the most part the USB flash device is more for the transfer of PS2 game saves downloaded online to your memory card (no PS2 game at the moment scans for game saves from the PS2's USB port), another nifty side feature on the Codebreaker. New for version 9 is the Code Breaker chat program, which presumably allows for you to do IM using your PS2's Network Adapter, the Code Breaker disc, and a broadband connection. Flash pens are supported on Code Breaker; codes may be saved and pulled from one as well.If you've just gotten into the business of cheating, the Code Breaker version 9 is a reasonably good purchase. However, as with all cheat devices, you should visit their site (www.cmgsccc.com) and (www.codebreaker.com) to see the latest array of available cheats. If none of the cheats will appear to help you, then obviously, you should refrain from wasting your hard earned money.
But if in the off chance the cheats are to your liking (or if you hack games for a living) the Code Breaker version 9 is a soldi shoe-in.

This review was originally written on December 4, 2004The Perfect Companion For The CodeBreakerThe (Mfr#P-FD064U11-RF) is the only drive that I have successfully gotten to work with the. I plug it into my PC, download code and game save files from the internet onto the drive, remove it from my PC (after going through Window's 'Unplug or Eject hardware' routine, of course), plug it into one of my PS2's USB slots, boot up the CodeBreaker CD, and transfer the files from the drive to my PS2 memory card.
Of course it works the other way around too (so I can transfer my game saves from my PS2 memory card to my PC). As a bonus, I can also use it to transfer files from my PC to someone elses. A very reliable little device.I can also personally confirm that the Memorex Thumb/Travel Drive (Mfr#32507712) (128 MB) does NOT work.
Feel free to check out the official list of (supposedly):Compatible USB Pen Drives by Neo (last updated: 7/26/2005)Here's a list of compatible USB drives:. Lexar Jumpdrive - $20-$40 @ BestBuy.com. PNY Attache - $20 for 128mb @ BestBuy.com. Sandisk Cruzer Micro - No information yet. Memorex - $20 for 128mb (unconfirmed price). The PSP - Compatible as a gamesave/code save storage device. iLo MP3 Player - $65 (average) for 256mb storage.
Verified it myself. Dell USB Pen Drives - $30 for 128mbBelow is a list of incompatible storage devices:. Sandisk Cruzer Mini. MaxDrive (ARMax) - Supposedly it works, however completely unauthorized and unsupported by CMGSCCC.
Do not use.When purchasing a USB drive, remember that unless you plan on other uses for your pen drive, you won't need one larger than 64mb (that's the size of 8 PS2 memory cards). That kind of storage is more than you will ever need for your PS2.2017 UPDATE - Okay, this is an item that no one reading this today will be interested in buying. USB 2.0 is commonplace, much less USB 3.0, so a USB 1.1 device isn't going to be of interest to anyone anymore. On top of that, 64 Megabytes is a drop in the bucket compared to the GIGABYTES of space afforded by today's USB devices.
Remember, 1 GB = 1,024 MB, so all of my 4GB devices are each 63 times larger than this one drive, while occupying roughly the same physical space. I won't even bother to calculate the increase in capacity I get from my 8 GB and 128 GB devices. That said, I still have this 64 MB device, but only use it exclusively with the Codebreaker cheat device in my PlayStation 2 video game console, just as I suggested in this 'mini review'.Codebreaker, which ceased development about 10 years ago, was always finicky with the USB devices it would read files from. It may not read from today's faster and larger capacity devices, so this old PNY Attache 64 MB drive may be something to seek out if you're a. If you're tracking down an old copy of Codebreaker, you will also need to ask questions of Amazon and eBay sellers to find out which version they are selling. Version 10 was the last one produced, but you'll be good with versions 8 or 9, too. I have v8.0 and it works great to this day.

Version 7 could be useable, but I heard that it has issues, and don't bother with any earlier versions. As a general rule, go with v8, v9, or v10. No feedback yet Leave a comment.
