Killzone 2 was originally meant to be Killzone 3

Killzone 2 was originally planned to launch as Killzone 3, one of the game's designers has revealed, hinting at the possibility of a cancelled PS2 follow-up to the original Killzone. (Killzone 2, Killzone 3, PS2, PS3)

I believe it, IMO KZ2>KZ3

(not that KZ3 is bad at all)

Completely agree know what I find crazy about KZ2, it still looks amazing, even today. It looks better than most of the newer games the released, for instant just look at the guns in that game. And the amount of chaos in some MP modes. I wasn't really all that hyped for Shadow Fall, but the more I see previews, the more excited I am to see what they pull off.

I hate pharysys crater and ahmir snowdrift....I always get stuck on those damn maps all green and boring. I like blood grahct and bilgarsk Blvd a lot. I could play those two maps all day. I also like salmun market a lot but its all game types only... that bugs me I prefer just body count. I prefer the controls in kz3 but the graphics and maps in part 2. I got the pelican trigger extensions that work like a charm with kz3 but kz2 doesn't let u flip both both triggers and bumper buttons so I just play part 2 90% of the time but I use r1&l1.
I do like the class system better in part 3. part 2 was a little too tightly whitey.

I know I'm going to get some hate, but I liked the story of KZ3 much more. I grew that actually like the characters in that one. The stealth section was phenomenal, too. And the MAWLR! That's got to be one of the most epic boss battles I've ever played.

As far as multi-player is concerned, I was mildly upset that they took a couple of features away, but the new stuff was pretty awesome and the maps were just as good as, if not better than, the ones in KZ2. I love the mechs.

I enjoyed KZ3 much better than KZ2 singleplayerwise. But I thought the maps in KZ3 sucked though.

I like how demolition class wasn't locked into shotguns only. I like two primary machine guns. Bam! That's hot. Medics pretty cool with that gobot protectin ya. Infiltrator is pussy shit but I like unlimited sprint. Marksman with silent machine gun is hot. Tactition is OK. scoped helghast machine gun is really nice. I just hate the maps in part 3 not including blood gracht and bilgarsk Blvd though they are sweet. Damn pharysys crater. That mobile junkyard sucks too. Get with the program Herman hulst. Part 4 maps better be salamun market good. I like frozen damn too. Blood gracht original rules.

The guy who lead the multi-player on KZ2 is returning for Shadow Fall, so expect it to be a bit more like that. ;)

what? if 2 was planned as 3, what should have been #2? Liberation?

From someone who knows:

Article is slightly incorrect... Killzone psp was essentially killzone 2 and so the ps3 one was killzone 3, but then people were like "there's no number after Killzone liberation, so we better use 2". There was no secret title, killzone ps3 as it was called was just slow and never happening, it wasn't until the psp team moved over to ps3 that the game really started.

killzone 2 certainly looked better than 3

the multiplayer was far better

the sp is about the same, story wise i'd say, but kz2 is a better game imo
