V4VG.com -"Here we present a realtime cutscene that shows the true might of the Helgan forces."
to see if this game can live up to even Half of the "Incredible Hype" that is surrounding it(highly doubtful)...but I predict that the reviewers and such are really going to have a field day with this one, I mean honestly they're gamers just like the rest of us, and while they were having to wait such an Agonizingly long time for this game to be released, they have probably let their expectations continue to build and build to unimaginable heights. As it stands now, the bar is simply set to high for this playstation exclusive to live up to it, sadly
"As it stands now, the bar is simply set to high for this playstation exclusive to live up to" I disagree, while there is a lot of hype, i will say that Halo 3 and GTA IV received more and they both almost lived up to their hype. Still from what i've played of Killzone 2 so far, i will be very satisfied with this game.
That's what i'm always saying about Alan wake. Luckily the PC version should retain the hype.Hopefully.
This game is a must buy for me. I hope I can preorder it ASAP!
More like "the bar set by Killzone 2 is simply too high for other games to reach.
PS3 SUCKS, PS3 SUCKS, PS3 SUCKS, PS3 SUCKS!!!! lol... awesome
@360 degrees If you think that bar has been set too high for Killzone 2 for whatever Stupid reason, then I imagine that the Bar will even higher for Halo3:OSDT to even reach when it comes out Fall 2009. I think you fail to realize that Killzone 2 is setting bars for future FPS. After looking at Killzone 2 in action, if anyone still doubts this game, you are in serious denial. Seriously, Killzone 2 makes Halo 3 look last gen. for god's sake. You 360 fanboys make me laugh everytime you try to downplay Killzone 2.
Somebody just tell me how amazing the video was. I refuse to watch it. I want the full experience come February!
it was pretty freakin decent, bad quality and i dont see how youtube is exclusive, but you can tell this game's singleplayer will be very stroy oriented and they have put some thought into it
Bubbles for the reply. Thanks man.
I bet Eurogamer, Edge and Kotaku are busy finding faults and crying. "The good: the game looks alright and the gameplay is somewhat sharp but we hoped it would reach Gears of War standards in visuals. Good story but we don't like it. The bad: lighting too realistic, It's not on the 360, took too long to release, looks better than the target render, bad texture in the 5th level at the second corner under the red pipe. Characters don't look like they're on 'roids. Enemy AI act like they're alive, they try and hide from your shots and flank you. Environments are too varied. No chainsaw."
But not because of the "Incredible Hype" because there isn't any; well, any being made by Sony that is - just the Ps3 critics. Yes, "the reviewers and such are really going to have a field day with this one" not because they are gamers BUT because many are biased fanboys who just don't like Sony. I mean honestly. We've been waiting "an Agonizingly long time for this game" because Guerilla Games isn't as experienced with games development like veterans Insomniac, Infinity Ward, Epic, Naughty Dog, Criterion etc. Sheez, if any of these developers were given the job of developing Killzone 2 it would have likely been out a year ago and been awesome. And yes again, "the bar is simply set too high for this playstation exclusive to live up to it" because sadly, that bar is being set by anti-ps3 fanboys/critics. Obvious really. BTW. I am a fan of KZ1 as it's still a solid shooter for its time. I rated it 7/10 due to it's clumsy graphics glitches, linear gameplay, lack of physics, no usable vehicles. But you could clearly see the potential there for Killzone 2 to be better. Either GG needs to learn from its mistakes and gain more experience OR another top notch developer should have been brought in to make it - fck, I'd love to have seen Epic's or Criterions's version of Killzone 2 with their experience with great shooters. Looks like GG has learnt and will be making a better version of the game. I don't expect too many 10/10 reviews but Killzone 2 shouldn't get less than 8/10. So yes, I'm excited by no one is hyping here....just looking for a better version of a solid game. Bring on Uncharted2, Gow3, Heavenly Sword 2, Black 2, Warhawk2, CoD MW2... Got the message? Good.
Its not exactly hype to just say when you've seen something good. Quackpots right, its not like Sony or GG are going on and on about this game. Only people who've played it are. You sound like you're just getting an excuse in place so you can hate it when its out. If you dont trust the hype, at least trust your eyes. PS The animation in this is peerless.
The only thing that im worried about this game is the enemy AI. From the videos im seeing, the AI seems worrisome. The rest looks good
I hate when people talk about games living up to hype. Games should only be hyped up as much as you personally anticipate it. Nintendo hype up stuff like Super Smash Bros and the latest Mario game all the time, but I see them and have no idea why, they don't seem fun at all. Like music, movies, art, whatever, gaming is totally subjective. I'm a Playstation fanboy, but KZ2 doesnt really interest me so I'm not overly hyped for it at all. It'll prolly live up to my expectations of being another console FPS that I'll play for a few hours at a friends place and be a little 'meh' about it all.
sounds like halo 2-3. played it for an hour, could care less if i ever played either again.
was that marcux fenix's voice at 1:53??
I don't give a fu<k about what any site says about Killzone 2. First day buy for me
it looks like cgi...how much dis this fricken game cost??? it looks expensive
its rumored to have a development budget of nearly 60 million USD...it was only confirmed to be 'over 40 million' by some Dutch newspaper back in 2006...but many sources point to it being much more than that... yeah...its expensive...if it really is around 60, its a good 10 million more than MGS4 give or take...
I thought that he hadn't got the game ? /sarcasm Btw, NDA is Broken, prepare yourself to receive Sony's Ninjas @[email protected]
Just because he posted some vid from youtube doesn't mean he has game, this is from some Sony event.Probably closed one
hey too pony silly goon shhhh you are annoying
hmm not watching a single KZ2 video till..I get the game..XD
I still haven't watch a single new video of Killzone 2. same deal for uncharted 2. I just want to enjoy it when i get the game
i agree with you once again. i dont want to ruin it
same here. it's hard resisting not to watch one of these videos, but i gotta be strong and not ruin the experience. :)
3 of us, so far.
Sony snipers in 3...2...
looks better than a CG cutscene, yeah! I went there.
Considering the obsered amount of praise that COD4 and HALO 3 along with many less stella games have recieved, if killzone 2 get's extremely nitpicked for something the ^ mentioned games also did then i will officially say f#ck all sites(American ones that is, because i know they are the worst in the media). Any normal human being knows the game will own come february. One thing i don't understand is that, why don't review sites/magazines assign someone who enjoys and specializes in a specific genre(lets say shooter) and have them review the games of that genre instead of a rpg fan reviewing shooting games. I mean it doesn't make sense why they don't do that. This leaves room for unfair judgment on the game, thus enabling the reviewer to downplay certain elements (controls,gameplay,story etc etc) that will result in points being deducted. OBAMA!!!
Its gonna get cut down in the reviews.Ever since Killzone 1 was labeled as the "Halo killer" from OPM I knew it would be under an unclimbable mountain of hype especially after the sequel was announced at E305 with that CGI footage
Sony is all about CGI footage. Look at heavy rain... i laughed so hard at the first video. Sony fanboys always grow a big old hard one over these CGIs yet they never feel cheated when they get their sh!t games.
it's a halo *** devastator *** remember duke nukem 3D? XDDD halo3 launch followed the biggest overhyping campaign in history. KZ2 hyping is peanuts in comparison, yet this is the same hardware generation and this game makes halo3 look like an average PS2 game lol
dude your hole check it OH stevie sue me but ur a bot chump
You realize all the Heavy Rain footage that's been shown so far has been in-game, correct?
This game will be so good I'm scared :(
That looks crazy. But if he has a the a review code, then he broke the NDA. He should check his house for explosives :P. But really, it looks really crazy.
I want a limited edition dammitz. >.< Way too excited for this game.
hopefully the loading time after the cut scene isnt the indication of the final game.
Multiplayer will be the grace of this game, causing reviewers to have orgasms even as they drive home however the single player experience will drive down the score somewhat. The FPS genre is quite linear, and every FPS that has received accolades as of late has been almost exclusively for its Online longevity and enjoyability. Something Halo 3, and COD4 (which seem to be the references for this game judging from the comments) are well known for. Average score from all sources IMO = 8.9
Dude, Halo 3 is the ugly stepchild in the Halo family. Please don't use it in the same sentence as COD4 or KZ2. As for the rest of your thoughts...I guess time will tell.
I think Meus is right. I also think this game will be held to some ungodly high standards instead of being reviewed for what it is. The game WILL be nitpicked to death, and it WILL be nitpicked for issues that were 100% glossed over in reviews of titles like R2, Halo 3, and CoD4. Thankfully, the review community proved long ago how biased and foolish they are as a whole, and I stopped listening to them long ago. SEEING KZ2 on a 52" HDtv with my own eyes sold me on the MP alone.
As a 3d modeller i can say that no game still matches crysis in tech but for some reasons, killzone 2 just looks so much better in my eyes. The animation and overall rendering techniques are just unprecedented. It goes beyond simple polygon count and textures. It just looks like a cg movie in gameplay form. Jaw dropping...
Is it me or do the Helghast sound British? That one talking to the general at least? That one cutscene really feels like a movie to me. That lightning gun looked like it F$#$ing hurt.
General rule of cinematography. All baddies must have a British accent. Makes it more cynical and sinister. They 'ave us british aw figured aahhht eh, guvnor?
I mean Helghast
Hope it makes it on Feb
I was crying on happiness...
Wow! Even with this sh!tty youtube quality you can see that this game has the best graphic ever(In tearms of consoles)Althought i begin to think that this game has better graphic then Crysis...OMG I'M SO SOO SORRY SHOULDN'T HAVE SAID THAT!!! Now i'm gonna get many disagree's
yzz i know but this game is up there near crysis :)
You just had to go there. I understand sometimes we can not help ourselves.
an "exclusive" cutscene that just happened to be on youtube
that post they really didn't care for the game, lmfao! "paid off by MS" "they aren't credible" etc. lol All I know is Sony put the weight of its fanbase purely on this title alone almost and EVERY gamer has their eyes on it. This game cannot even land in the mid range of reviews. This game needs all 10s. It shouldn't have a problem getting that in graphics/presentation thats for sure. This game will destroy all console games in febuary. No matter what fanboys say, now is a great time to become a multiconsole owner... you're truelly missing out by staying alligned to a company that does jacks#!t for you but provide entertainment... and great expierences can be had on the competitors consoles too!
Killzone 2 owns all games as of now......
Killzone 2 owns all games until you play it. Btw, look at the neverending loading screen at the end of the video. Too bad you can't run games from the HDD like the 360 can. Loadzone 2 lol!
Jenzo you really are a peice of work. That was the end of the demo, not some darn loading screen! The stupidity.
point and laught at jenzo
Her chin went through her collar. *gasp* terrible graphics.. :P
Better not be in the final version!
There is another video going to be put up later during the day. It displays an open ended environment never seen earlier. Its looks amazing, Star Wars fanboys will be rather excited, it looks like something right out of Jaaba's homeland, desert and desolated. Yeah we are a new site and still building up on all content. We gave all you guys an opinion on Killzone 2 which was not biased for once, we did detail all the amazing bits of the game and also pointed out certain inconsistencies to balance the entire equation. Thank You all for your cooperation guys, and the game is pure gold, no matter which side of the fence you are on, its almost impossible not to award a standing ovation to GG for their remarkable efforts.A minor detail - its not the review code, and hence there are no spoilers, cutscenes were absolutely random in the game, its still the preview code from October 2008.
OMG Darth vader is from helgan. That would cap some [email protected] George lucas your area genius :)
That's one heavy loading screen at the end of the video. It never ends lol!
Uncharted did a similar thing, it has one really long load when you start the game, then there's no loading screens for the rest of it. They're using the same principle for Killzone 2, I believe.
...As they said they were shooting for no load screens.
how did he get a trophie at the end
Those graphics were better than MGS4
Best looking game evar.
Hell has frozen over, Nasim has defected lol, read his comment below the trailer.
