I think the rule on emulators is that if you own a PS2 and you own ace combat 4 then it isn't illegal to use an emulator but it is illegal to download roms off the internet without owning them.

You have to go to different rom sites but you can get an emulator that would allow you to just put you ps2 disc into the CD drive and start to play. I had one for PS1 but i never could get it to work right but good luck.

The emulators are not themselves illegal, but the BIOS files and the game ISOs are illegal, IF you do not own a legal copy yourself. If you own a legal console yourself, you are allowed to make exactly ONE copy of the BIOS as a backup to run on an emulator.

The PS2 has not been adequately emulated yet, especially if you do not have a top-of-the-line computer. PCSX2 is the farthest along, but it's not yet production-ready.

PS1 has been emulated for years.

Love firing up the PC, throwin FF Tactics in the CD-ROM and playin...
Thats the only way I could play FFT and Legend of Dragoon after my PS died.

dog's right about the PS2, you gotta run top PC to run the emulators.

If you can find it, look for a prog called Emurayden. (May be "emuraiden" but I think the 1st one is right)
Other than that, PSEmu.
