GOONL!NE's Hands on Impressions of Killzone 2

GOONL!NE: " In just over 6 - 7 weeks time, all the talk, all the hype and all the trash talk on this game stops. Killzone 2 will be ready to prove that it's ready and willing to take on the big multiplayer guns like Gears of War, Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4 and judging from our hands on time, it's not just ready to go, it rearing to go like a dog desperate to hump something.

All them doubts from E3 2005 can now go away, Killzone 2 is gonna be one hell of a game, it's gonna be the Apocalypse Now of games and thats a very big tag to fall under."

"The game runs at a solid 30FPS but the game looks so incredible, it could easily run 60FPS if it wanted to so hopefully,you will have the option to turn 60FPS on"

Whaaa?

Johnny Cullen3265d ago

Ala Bioshock, Fishy.

The default option in Bioshock is 30FPS but you have the option to turn on 60FPS if you want.

I know Killzone 2 doesnt have that (as far as I am aware, it could be added before the game's release, it wasnt in the beta) but it could be a good option for GG to add.

If what I think your on about is right.

Fishy Fingers3265d ago (Edited 3265d ago )

Really, Bioshock actually did that? Pointless, if 60FPS is possible normally it is default. Why even give you the option of 30FPS? Anyway, theres, not a chance KZ will do that, it's locked at 30 because that what they could manage with all the tech effects. Running at 60 frames the game would look vastly different, for the worse.

LinuxGuru3265d ago

Bioshock just "unlocks the framerate", it doesn't go right to 60fps. The framerate will drop down in action sequences, and it's not stable.

I don't think Killzone 2 will have such a feature.

"it's not just ready to go, it rearing to go like a dog desperate to hump something."

lol

can't wait to get the demo.
hopefully it'll be the SP demo.
EB told me they'll get the vouchers in this week and call me.

thereapersson3264d ago

Hey Fishy, Bioshock had an option to unlock the framerate, but it would dip at times and there was a massive amount of screen tearing. Personally, I would rather take a locked 30 over a variable 60 with tearing any day.

LONEWOLF2313264d ago

GG can easily release a patch containing that said option.
But damn dude all options and patches aside this game looks frigging sweet! I was LMFAO at the guy that was playing on the newly released footage.......i mean im no pro but if i stood side by side, his gaming skills would make me look like one....lol Ahh man i cant wait for this game, i know its not possible since they already have the demo slated for released this coming Feb 3rd but i wish they could move the release date at an earlier date!

Bathyj3264d ago

Yeah, I'll take a stable 30fps over a frame rate that goes up and down anyday. Resistance 1 is probably the smoothest framerate I've ever seen on a console shooter and its only 30fps. Its good enough.

so poetic

Why is it that I always see previews and reviews (always ultra-positive, by the way) from websites that I've never heard of right before big games are released?

I also like the 10/10 reviews from magazines and countries that nobody has ever heard of: "Gamezzz, Dingle-berryland's most famous gaming magazine, rates (insert game here) a 10/10!!"

Seems like they really enjoyed it ! Calling it GOTY 09 based off the MP beta? Must of been one hell of a beta lol.I wish i got a chance to play it.

Doppy3264d ago

Very Bold predictions, I can't wait to get my hands on it, and see for myself. Killzone 2 will change the industry.

sanamsingh3265d ago

Is the multiplayer just as intense, fun, and addicting as Call of Duty 4 was?

Johnny Cullen3265d ago

Too early to call.

However, it is a contender, I'll say that. I had so much fun in the beta thaty it may actually be better then COD4 so I am gonna go out on a limb and say yes.

cayal3265d ago

Because you were in the beta I really hate you.

Johnny Cullen3265d ago

XD

For what it is worth, come release day, you wont be dissapointed ;)

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3265d ago

cayal3265d ago
