Guerrilla Games published some new Killzone 2 screenshots. Enjoy.
Nice graphics, but I would like to see some new environments.
Holy crap, your image handler is beyond horrible. Stop existing. You don't do any game justice.
@ZackFair:When you click on the image there's a plus sign on the image top panel, click on it to view the image in it's real size. @Supercalifragili: First and fourth images are new environments.
....in the locations. I am sure they probably have them, but maybe just be nice to see one screen with something different that will make me go wow, i cant wait to get to that point in the game. Im not saying a complete blowout of all the locations or anything but just a screen to wet the apetite.
Urban, desert, indoor are all we've seen so far. Don't expect any new locations to look drastically different from what we've seen - for example take the desert environment; it's inkeeping with the graphical style set out in the urban environment but it does look distinctive. Don't expect more from this game than they are offering. The 2005 trailer got everyone hyped. Why? They have delivered on the promises they made in that trailer - graphics, gameplay. Killzone 2 is an FPS which features a single-player campaign, about 8 hours long, and team-based competitive multiplayer with 8 maps. It features the best graphics seen on consoles, with a unique graphical style that is present throughout. It is set on a single planet in mostly urban environments. It features, alongside the staple FPS weapons, a flamethrower, a bolt gun, and an electricity weapon. It features a first-person cover system in single-player and limited detructibilty of environments. That's all it is. That's all it was ever supposed to be. No matter what the devs do, it will be "another" FPS. It's not pretending to be anything else. If anyone hates on it, they are hating on the genre itself essentially. And don't get your hopes up that it will be anything more than I described.
your forgetting about the: -Clan Support for 64 players per clan (Something Few games have, or get right. IE CoD4) -Ingame clan Tournaments (256 clans per tournament) -Clan Currency for betting on matches and bragging rights (Valor Points) -Customizable classes -Ability to Watch Tournament Battles (Something only Guild Wars has done) Trust me, Killzone 2 is raising the bar higher then any other FPS... After KZ2 launches, other shooters are going to be graded on how well it is compared to Killzone 2.... Killzone 2 aint just some run of the mill fps, its Killzone.
Sorry I forgot to mention the clan support and classes. But you clearly didn't understand my point. I expect it to be a very good FPS, even perhaps raise the bar for others to match - but it's ONLY an FPS. People are hyping the crap out of it expecting it to be something else. It's just another game, people will get bored of it eventually, people who hype it up will somehow end up disappointed when they see there's no co-op or split-screen in the game. They will be upset that the game all has the same graphical style - that of everything they've seen that has got them so hyped. They will be upset when it doesn't involve much more than shooting at stuff. They will be upset when the unoriginal story is told through short cutscenes. They will be upset because all the mission objectives are about shooting things. I fear that Killzone 2 will be hated on for unoriginality and things like that, whilst other games like L4D and Gears 2 really do get a free pass. Because the graphics are great, people feel the need to say "but what about the gameplay!11" when actually it was the graphics that got them so hyped in the first place. Tell me, why did everyone get so hyped up about the 2005 trailer if nobody cares about graphics now? The gameplay in that trailer really didn't look that special to me.
The gameplay elements may not be ground-breaking, and like you said it never claimed to be, but most people were never looking for something ground breaking. Who watched the clip and said "wow! Now THAT'S a new way of playing games!"? No one. Everyone went ga-ga over the graphics, and GG actually went beyond the trailer in almost every respect. Now I also agree that a lot of fanboys are hyping this game up to the heavens, but in all reality any game can be pegged as something; it's the gameplay that will make one or another game distinct. Gears was not groundbreaking at all. It ripped off Kill.Switch (the true genre-defining game)and added the chainsaw-gun. Now the Chainsaw gun (and the gears/Unreal III armor) isn't even original in that such a gun was made by warhammer fans; in that regard, I do expect Killzone to be "not original" in that I expect it will be firmly pegged into a genre like Gears was. Now that's not to say that Killzone 2 won't bring new elements to the FPS genre; Killzone 2 will use new sixaxis mechanics to the gameplay, and you will also have a full first-person cover system, something that hasn't been done before, if I'm not mistaken. So no, I don't expect it to poop rainbows, but I don't expect it to be "just another" shooter, either. Time will tell.
I love this game:).
This game doesn't impress me at all. :(
Considering this is the most visually impressive console game ever, with the most impressive lighting and textures ever seen, I can only conclude that video games don't impress you. So if a game can't impress you that would tend to suggest that you aren't that interested in games. So then why are you here?
Ainda gostava de saber qual é o jogo que te impressiona...LOL
http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... This dude a little on the crazy side.. seems as though he can't figure out what he thinks about this game. and die fiend is right there with him for defending him.
Jeeze, don't mess with K2 or jtucker WILL take it personally...You simply have to be blown away by this game or else! No there's no arguing about it. If you're not impressed by it you must be wrong. Even if you played the first game and thought it was rubbish, U NEEEEEED 2 be impressed by this game, that isn't even out! On a different note, the game does looks pretty incredible from a technical standpoint. Seeing it in motion, it doesn't seem like any other FPS. Just the way the gun moves and the character sways + the motion blur make it seem dreamy (in a good way). Hope it turns out to be as good as it looks
I haven't taken anything personally. I just get curious why these ignorant plebs feel compelled to say something so stupid. The only way Killzone 2 can't impress is if you aren't a gamer. Even if Killzone 2 isn't your type of game at all, then it is still impossible not to have an appreciation for what Guerilla has done on a graphical level.... ...IF you are a gamer You yourself said "the game does looks pretty incredible from a technical standpoint" That is being impressed. At the end of the day I'm a gamer, so I can appreciate impressive aspects from a lot games. Even ones I don't intend to buy. Mirror's Edge was impressive. I wouldn't buy it, but what Dice tried to do was impressive. From the sheer amazing gameplay of Mario Galaxy to the truely epic scope of Gears 2 and yes the never before seen quality of graphics exhibited in Killzone 2. What is the point in posting "This game doesn't impress me at all"? It's ignorant and adds nothing to the discussion. If outstanding aspects of games don't impress diefor, then perhaps he needs to find himself a new hobby. How about travelling to Florence to view some renaissance period sculptures and paintings. Perhaps he will find those more impressive.
NINE bubbles. Count 'em. Ladies and gentlemen, the system has failed. LONG LIVE THE SYSTEM...
The system is - saying good things about the PS3 gets you bubbles, good things about 360 loses you bubbles. This site is literally the worst I've ever been on for general discussion, I've never seen such anger about a games console lol. It's like people (such as jtucker) will throw themselves in front of a train if it means the PS3 will sell a few more. How can people care so much about a console?
Well, allow me to rectify the situation. I thought Gears 2 was a better game than R2 and I don't think R2 deserved a score as high as the one IGN gave. R2 was a great package (loads there) no doubt, but the shooting wasn't as tight as Call of Duty 4 or the Killzone 2 beta. And Left4Dead 4 player co-op is awesome. One of the best online experiences I've had this year. Has that helped? Credit where credit is due guys. If something is good it's good. Who cares what console it's on? EDIT: butbutbuttehcell - no offence, but that is a FBoy name, if ever I heard one. Don't be a hater.
Truth is, saying good things about GAMES and leaving the consoles out of it will get you bubbles. Sure there are fanboys that can enjoy a single system that have many bubbles but they are typically the fanboys that keep from flaming others. You can love one system and be a fanboy and refrain from hating on others for differing opinions. Keep from hating and you might find more bubbles in your profile.
"This game doesn't impress me at all"? It's ignorant and adds nothing to the discussion. How's it ignorant? It isn't ignorant, he's clearly sure that it doesn't impress him. So the only person ignorant here is you: ignorant of the definition of ignorance, if you can understand that (doubtful). Ironic no? "The only way Killzone 2 can't impress is if you aren't a gamer." What a load of bull. I'm not impressed by every single game that has unique things about it, so 'oh I'm not a gamer.' If you play games then you're a gamer, not if you're impressed by what you define to be impressive. "You yourself said "the game does looks pretty incredible from a technical standpoint" That is being impressed. " I never said I wasn't impressed, jeeze you must be so clever. When did I ever say that? I just said he doesn't have to be impressed by it. If he's played the first then I wouldn't blame him if he wasn't. I know what impressed is, it's a pretty simple word, even more so than ignorant. But you wouldn't know about that.
"It's ignorant and adds nothing to the discussion. How's it ignorant? It isn't ignorant, he's clearly sure that it doesn't impress him. So the only person ignorant here is you: ignorant of the definition of ignorance, if you can understand that (doubtful). Ironic no?" Listen son, you aren't going to progress past minimum wage with reasoning like that. Let me explain this as simply as I can. Try to keep up. "How's it ignorant? It isn't ignorant, he's clearly sure that it doesn't impress him." Conviction and ignorance are not mutually exclusive. It doesn't stop the statement from being ignorant regardless of how sure he is. When someone blurts out an antagonistic unconstructive statement without justification, I doubt many "intelligent" people would object to me labelling said person with the title of ignorant. Let diefor respond to his previous statement and defend himself. Don't waste my time.
Progress past minimum wage? Yeah, hate to tell you but I've never been on that pittance. "When someone blurts out an antagonistic unconstructive statement without justification, I doubt many "intelligent" people would object to me labelling said person with the title of ignorant." Ignorance has nothing to do with something being antagonistic or unconstructive...How's it without justification when what he said is his opinion? Lets see here "It doesn't stop the statement from being ignorant regardless of how sure he is." lol, the fact that's he's sure of it is EXACTLY why it isn't ignorant, u ignorant schmuck! For god sake, let me help you cos you know what it means when you don't: Ignorance: 1)Lacking education or knowledge. 2)Showing or arising from a lack of education or knowledge: an ignorant mistake. 3)Unaware or uninformed. So how is what he said any of those? He has knowledge of the game (and is therefore informed/aware of what it is) enough to be able to say it doesn't impress him. So it's clearly not ignorance. Maybe you got it confused with arrogance, something which someone like you shouldn't be...It's not like he just said something random having no information on the game is it? He just said he wasn't impressed, FROM WHAT HE'S SEEN. SEEN as in viewed himself and is therefore not ignorant of the game. So yeah, keep telling yourself that I'm having to keep up with you who doesn't know how to use a basic word in the right context. Using statistical terms like mutually exclusive doesn't make you seem clever by the way, trying to use big words to redeem the fact that you misused the word ignorant is just embarrassing yourself further.
diefor - "This game doesn't impress me at all." die_fiend - "He has knowledge of the game (and is therefore informed/aware of what it is) enough to be able to say it doesn't impress him." How do you know he's informed? Where does he give even the slightest evidence in the above 7 words that he is informed OR has any knowledge of the game? Answer: he doesn't. "He just said he wasn't impressed, FROM WHAT HE'S SEEN. SEEN as in viewed himself and is therefore not ignorant of the game." No he didn't. And that is where you fail! You just added the FROM WHAT HE'S SEEN part. That my friend is a justification. The one thing I kept going on about. The thing that diefor didn't provide. And you just provided one for him in order to make him (and subsequently you) sound less ignorant. And now you have owned yourself in the process. You should have just left it. And since when is mutually exclusive statistical? Lol. one-to-one? I guess the number 1 is a statistic. Ha Ha Ha... big words? Man you need an education.
Are you two gonna make out yet? Jesus Christ, WHO CARES?
I didn't mean he said "from what he's seen" you dumdum! Obviously he isn't going to write from what he's seen! I'm saying he said that statement on what he's seen! Need an education? I've got a first class BSc economics degree lol, suppose that's nothing tho. And that's where mutually exclusive is a statistical term...look it up if you don't believe me. "How do you know he's informed?" Because he gave his opinion, based on what he's seen, thus not being ignorant. So yeah, tell me what your level of education (of lack of) is.
I'm going to reply to you in a really intelligent and an non-ignorant fashion. Your logic does not impress me at all :(
Wow those character models are sick
