Kikizo takes the Killzone 2 multiplayer beta for an extensive test drive. Here are a couple of choice snippets:
"While no Aldrin-esque leap in FPS design, Killzone 2 is brim-full of neat little touches, like locker doors which flap outward to provide fleeting cover, or the way gunfire changes pitch as you near the end of a clip. To counter the inevitable spawn-campers, the game generates you afresh in different chambers around a spawn zone, rather than launching you into being at the same spot each time."
"The actual business of blasting the unwary off this mortal coil is, for want of a better word, delicious: if nothing else, Guerrilla has put together character models that are supremely satisfying to shoot at, much like Halo 3's glassy alien architecture. Soft, almost cushioned limbs puff a haze of arterial spray as you unleash hell from a distance; close up, your muzzle flash throws them into stark relief."
