PCSX2 is the only PS2 emulator currently worth using. Others are in early development, like hpsx64, but another emulator proved capable: Play!. Play! is an actively development PS2 emulator, and it can boot/run some (although few) commercial titles (such as Final Fantasy X); but due to it being premature compared to PCSX2 it has many issues/obstacles that hinder it from being a competent, stable, usable emulator thus far (for the majority of PS2 games).
