Heres some new KZ2 footage from JeuxFrance totalling 12 minutes, showing the FPS cover system in action
awesome, epic and immense, not a lot of words to describe how good this game looks and for the bashers of A.I., the dude actually died this time. must have increased the difficulty or he sucked hard at FPS's.
Well 99% of the videos we've seen are being played with "god mode" on, that alone can cause big problems for AI. But with yet another 9 months development time remaining I wouldnt be surprised to see KZ support some of the best AI to date. One thing I've noticed from the new videos, there still is a HUD, well ammo display anyway, they said the complete game will have zero hud, wonder if they havent finished that yet or certain guns might not look right with an LCD displays showing your ammo count and they may have binned that idea. Graphics and that aside, this game seems to capture the atmosphere perfectly, that's very hard to do.
too bad xbox will never have a game this amazing, PS3 FTW!!!!!
Gotta say - I doesn't look as good as I was hoping. I think Resistance 2 is better looking IMO. But this game does look like it will be fun. Just not the "blow me away" factor I was expecting.
Lol jasonhenry you never let me down, please don't ever change. And to get back on topic would you explain what it is you were expecting to see that you didn't and why the 5 second blurry shaky cam video of R2 was more impressive? I'm sorry if I overlooked the fact that you were there at the show my apologies.
"too bad xbox will never have a game this amazing" I don´t think they do any more games for Xbox so I think we will never find out...
@Violator I thought the same thing. I hope R2 will be equally impressive, but to say "R2 looks way better" is funny. No HQ video released for that game yet. LOL.
jasonhenry...you are always underwhelmed with PS3 stuff...normally you make some comment about PC games after... and Resistance 2?...looks better?...you only saw a crap camera phone video of the online...which looked pretty bad... whether it didn't impress you or not...there is more tech going on in this demo than some other games combined...the volumetric explosions...the insane lighting...the dynamic destruction...animation that puts even uncharted to shame...how you could say 'its not as good as I expected' is beyond me...there is pretty much absolutely nothing this advanced...
they made true on the 2005 CG... Now for all those people that were [email protected] themselves because "Sony lied" or "Gurillea games cheated" saying "thats not real" here ya go now $TFU! NEEEEEXXXTTTT...
and watching the whole thing, it's safe to say that this is the game that all others will chase fo years to come. As for the here and now -- the PS3 has proven beyond all doubt that it is "the" next-gen system of this generation. Guerilla has delivered and then some.
I saw color a plenty. Holy crap that looked good. Sony, you did it. I don't like the CGI target render strategy but they really pulled it off this time. This game looks better than anything I've ever seen. And I'm not talking PCs here so please save your Crysis talk. BTW, I wonder how big an install this is going to be.
KZ2 looks miles better than anything on your xbox 360.
KZ 2 gets better everytime we see it
this game looks average the gun modeling is great but the environments look very very awful take a look at the texture of all the building and the walls they dock for cover reminds me of mgs4 with a lot better post processing effects the weather effects are also cool and the explosion look odd but look cool, tbh this game will look pale to games coming out IN 2009 not to mention gears of war 2 is coming out this year and has gotten goty and set benchmark for graphics and gameplay so if
2009 is gonna be great
highly doubt GOW3 is coming in 2009.
i highly doubt GOW3 is not coming in 2009.
sorry, but i must say this in german Hammer Übergeil dafür gibt es keine Beschreibung man. so i must calm down....
Pog mart bring gears up and u are Stupid Its just been P1ssed on
weres your proof at we have not seen any real ingame footage of GOW2 YET. oh this looks nothing like the footage shown a few years back lol you droids will believe any thing. i must say though, THE GUN MODELING RIVALS COD4 if not better i will giv you that. proberly is gonna be a good game though. i am still gonna hold my cash back though. i dont see any inovation on the shooting side exept for the cover system.
It is over XBUTTTS for MS and XFIX ME LOL this BOT thinks GAYERS2 has any chance vs KZ2??????????????? GAYERS2 wont even challenge UNCHARTED and it is made on that LAME UNREAL CRAP ENGINE
just incredible. jaw dropping gorgeous, its great that this generation of games is really turning out to be unbelievable!
to say that if you download the wmv's from the gamersyde website they are in a way better resolution than the streaming video they use its a lot better and stunning
very true, but they are also very short
but if you download both part 1 and part 2 gameplay it equates to this video only the god mode is turned off in this video which i am glad, it forced this guy to use cover the other guy wasn't in previous videos. He didnt because he wasnt afraid of dying :)
its amazing how some of these guys that get to demo the games suck so bad... the one video has a dude that obviously can't get used to whatever button does the melee...he keeps hitting it thinking its for the sprint; so he is just swinging his gun at nothing in the middle of the battlefield... and yeah...fishy fingers mentioned it...both the E3 gameplay vids and all but this one were using god mode...makes sense, so that these chumps don't get killed every 10 seconds...but that does drastically mess up AI code...absolutely zero comments can be made about AI when pretty much all you have seen is the game in god mode...you can't say if its good or bad... hopefully it will be great...anything will be better than killzone 1's AI though...so no matter what it will be an improvement...I am just hoping for huge battles like this with FEAR like AI...thats the best of both worlds...
Looks great, Still need a proper HD video however.
I need a new job, I can never watch any of these videos at work.
I'm lucky I get to come to this site at least. lol
hahahaha on the 9th ppl dreams willbe crushed again may 9th is insurection day the swarm will over power anything even a game that going to be released in 2009 HAHAHAHAHA gears of war 2 is a 3008 and watch wehn gameplay is shown anyway this game uses the same texture on everything everything seems to have the same tone ,look,colourpalater,polygoncou nt the only good thing about this is the explosion effects and motion blur
LOL, what did you just say? I gave up reading that one line in.
cover system could use a little bit of work, earlier videos show the guy looking back with his back against the wall, i understand they chose you to have the guy always peeking, i think they should have added an extra button where you peer across whatever your hiding with your back against, that way when you peek your open to damage or something, so you only peek in short bursts of course this gameplay mechanic was probably not as much fun and frustrated people who were playing (usually happens when something is hard to do) and they removed it
Earlier videos did not show back to wall. They have always been side on or forward. The cover system isn't 3rd person. They use a cover system that is more realistic as you do not do the idiotic Vegas back to wall in real life. You can see the cover mode in the video from E3 2007 which was the first actual gameplay demonstrated.
all the people who says kz2 sucks, well play whatever the heck you want to, i will be playing this game and no one can change this.
And, your listening to the people that says this game sucks? If so, then your a moron. NO ONE here has played this game, however, I would say that the first Killzone sucked, in my opinion. I didn't like it very much..
Tick those boxes
Crap man I cant get it to load.
xbots can't take. are you lot stupid, have u seen the doom movie, the part at the end where it shows an fps view yeah well this looks like that soo shut the hell up
wow!!!it looks better than the 2005 pre rendered trailer..
It looks better than the 2005 pre-rendered trailer
a few quotes from the comments on jeux-france: Starfoxx:" oh wait NOOOO!!! wasn't this supposed to be the Killer game coming at most this christmas ... blabla ..." Specter:" there are many blockbuster releases this year, i think it was a strategic decision to release it next year" Starfoxx: " it's frustrating to wait for games like this" And now the bot reveals himself and removes his ugly mask, " you forgot to mention the 360 games coming this year, i won't be waiting and masturbating until they come" and for the finisher, Specter:" don't worry, i'll be thinking of you when i am playing metal gear on my PS3, while you play NG2 on your BOBOX" starfoxx:"no wait, it's going to be postponed, it won't be released next month" :runs off crying:
video doesnt work for me and i am at home.
the video is not loading for me damm it.. Hope someone upload the file on some other server...
Not in firefox or explorer. Hope someone post a different link.
Watched some other Killzone 2 videos, graphically its looking great but the A.I. just doesn't even look that improved upon from E3'07. Go ahead, disagree with me without explaining.
Alot of Game **DEMONSTRATIONS** are played on "God mode" and that f**ks w/ the AI, also refining the AI (i`m pretty sure) is one of the last stages of game development before bug testing, usally.
I also disagree for the same reason as HD
Did you see the guy dies a few times right at the start of the video? Clearly not in God mode.
Only gears was played in NON GOD MODE since enemies in GEARS didnt have any AI
Hope the storyline is good too
Over 20 weapons. Vehicle confirmed. Variable environments. There will definitely be a coop feature. The enemy AI is fine, infact it looks pretty much improved. By the way the demo wasn't being played on God mode. The demos are usually running on easier setting so that the gamer can go through the game quickly so others can have a chance.
the game awesome quit nit picking it lol :)
This is what third party devs should take notice of. Quality technology that takes advantage of the platform. Quit b1tching about the architecture and concentrate o taming it. The gameplay looks to be shaping up pretty nice as well. All of this and its still in pre-alpha. color me impressed.
It worries when you hear one of the representatives saying how many weapons there are.We can all now breath a sigh of relief thanks to that bullet point.I can't reccal Halo or Halflife mentioning how many weapons it was to have.Imagine if Killzone had 100 weapons, that would be like 5x better than what it is now. Killzone may turn out being the best FPS yet but when i hear stuff like this, it begs the question if devs truly understand the real important stuff required to make FPS special - it's not graphics or weapons or how many of this or that.It could end up brilliant but it takes a lot more than numbers to make magic. Not slagging on this potentially great title here but it gets my goat a little this sort of thing hence my first post
lets take in mind your watching it through your computer monitor through a cheap a** video camara recording the tv. let alone its still in its pre alpha stage! its going to be a heck of a game. o and for gears 2, their just going to kill the franchise, look at what they did to halo.(old news)(very old news)
no game can match KZ2 KZ2 killed Crysis graphically too
looks good correction awesome correction ultimate awesome, but I'm little bummed its not coming out this year.I kinda knew that it wasn't, sony wouldn't release two huge games (KZ2 and R2) of the same genre at the same time, in that case they themselves would be their own worst enemy.
If they were playing on an easier diffcuity then yes I could understand the AI being bad but still they should take cover every now and then.
The Video is not loading!!!
Jeuxfrance has the SLOWEST servers ever.
This is perfection. If GTA IV got a 10 out of 10 I believe this game can get a 10 out of 10 or really close. (Its just up to the story and the multiplayer gameplay that will determine Killzone 2's worth because the graphics are untouchable and can't be argued). You can't compare the first Killzone to this anymore, Killzone 2 is in another league.
Guerrilla has polished this to great extent since last year show. Im still in state of AWE... Little by little it's looking like the Pre-Rendered and it'll be better, cause it's gonna be playable!!!
Dude, WTF is that avatar?
Killzone 2 looks great and did you hear the Bob Marley in the background? good times
i just cant get enough of this game its definitely in a league of its own.
Is everyone else's video in black and white?? =P jk Can't really see the graphics too well.. the video quality kinda sucks. But, from that video, it's looking great. But, I will still wait on reviews to see how well the gameplay is. I didn't like the first Killzone. And, pretty graphics does NOT make a game fun to play. But, for you people comparing this to Gears.. why? We haven't even seen gameplay from Gears2.
just imagine how the finish product will be =O
They took a lot of grief over killzone 1. But Killzone liberation proved they can make a great game And Killzone 2 looks to prove they can create an EPIC LEGENDARY game. Feb 2009 you say? Big deal, I can wait. Let me use the old phrase "Good things come to those who wait" Besides, I'll have plenty of stuff to keep me going on my ps3. Haze, Mgs 4, socom confrontation, resistance 2, wipeout HD, Little Big Planet, the Agency, and the possible 08 of DC universe online. Yep, I can hold out till feb 09. Not to mention I'm still playing warhawk and gt prologue. Note- Also fellas, has anyone made a japanese account and tried out battle fantasia yet? If you're a fighting game fan, do yourself a favor and make that jap account asap lol
heavy advertising from Sony to really hype up the game and bring into perspective of every PS3 owner.
Run some full on dramatic trailers with that orchestral music fade out to the ps3 logo, stick it in a bundle and BANG! it doesnt even have to play good to sell lots. When your graphics stand out like that, and i mean WOW, people will buy it anyway. Obviously i hope it plays as well as it looks.... And on the looks.... Man. I havent had wow factor like that since gears. KZ looks the freakin bomb. The lighting. The explosions, the gun details, the characters, the movements of the helghast as they get riddled with bullets. Damn it. This looks absolutely jaw dropping.
