To be quite honest, I think there are other people who can explain how to get game saves off the internet so you can download it move it to a flash drive and then onto a PS2 memory card. Besides, I don't want to be unfairly penalized for hosting "malicious" software; as they are willing to take that risk, they deserve the traffic.

Try and compartmentalize these instructions because taken all at once can leave a newbie confused.

Go to gamefaqs.com to grab a saved file of any sort or select one here.

Oh, by the way, before you start the instructions you will need:

  1. a USB flash drive
  2. a burnable CD/DVD
  3. burning software like Nero or Alchol [and maybe some actual alcohol, too]
  4. PS2 Save Builder software
  5. McBoot/Noobie Package
  6. uLaunchELF

The first three items are easily found on Amazon.com or any local Walgreens or office supply store. You might also find free burning software, but not all of them are up to par like those two I mentioned.

The last three items are just free downloads. If you try to download them on Chrome, some of the files might be blocked because Chrome has those sites marked as malicious. They aren't. These are safe files.

Once you find the game save you want to use, follow these instructions.

One of the best step-by-step directions to saving a game from the computer to a PS2 memory card - PS2SaveBuilder Tutorial

If that is too much information or too confusing, get a GameShark or MaxSave which take a lot of guess work out of the task.

Mad props for LancetJades of GameFaqs who has created the most brilliant files.
