"I deleted a game and I really want it back. Is it possible for me to recover it from my PS2 memory card? Any suggestion would be very much appreciated."

My recommendation is Recoverit or Recoverit for Mac. It is really effective to recover PS2 memory card data with Recoverit, no matter what files are lost due to accidental deletion, formatting, or even system error.
