From the CGI trailers to being called the end-all-be-all of console shooters, there's a lot to live up to with Killzone 2. By now we've all seen the amazing in-game videos and no one can deny the game is flat out beautiful. But more importantly, how does it play? I've had a chance to spend a good deal of time with the Killzone 2 Beta on the PS3. Read on for how it stacks up.
Like I said, graphically the game is top notch, even in the multiplayer beta. Character models, animations, and the environment all look fantastic. In the same breath, sounds are done equally as well. Various gun shots, explosions, and environmental effects are some of the best I've heard in a shooter recently".
