First off, I want to keep this review clear and simple, so it won't be very in depth. I'll just give my personal opinion on this game.
With that said, Killzone 2 is a game that plays like your ordinary FPS fair: shooting, reloading, ducking, throwing grenades, those usual stuffs. However, there are three major things that set Killzone 2 apart: 1. graphics, 2. contronl, 3. online multiplayer.
For the graphical department, Killzone 2 is top-notch . some people might be turned off by the dark and greyish futuristic environment. However,every texture, every atmosphere is so well done that you will look pass those minor things.
For the control, oh boy, this is really what got me to like Killzone 2 alot. Personally, I'm not a huge FPS fans. But with the control like Killzone 2, it makes the game so much more intense and realistic. The control feels heavy and has solid gravitational weight, which in terms provides you a more tactical shooting experience. You can no longer just run and gun like many other FPS. It makes you think about every steps you take before running out taking off your opponents.
For the online multiplayer, Killzone 2 has made another major step forward as far as I'm concerned. There are many variety of game modes, like capture the flag, death match, kill the target... however, Killzone 2 multiplayer seamlessly transits you from one game mode to another and it keeps the experience fresh and intense in the mean time. This is the quality that really sets Killzone 2 apart.
Killzone 2 can really satisfy your FPS need. If you own a PS 3 and are a FPS fans, go get this game now.
