Guerilla Games' first-person PS3-exclusive shooter Killzone 2 has everyone gabbing, and bloggers in particular panting, gushing, and fawning. According to the developers, it's steeped in "Hollywood realism" that's supposed to make things more "immersive."
Pedestrian yawn-ese like "best looking console game ever" and "surpasses Crysis" should suffice to warn you that substance and/or insight aren't high priorities in much of the press coverage.
Besides, everything looks pretty gosh-darned amazing these days. Who cares if one game looks better than another.
What I want to know is what's it play like? After all, we play games, not "wall textures," "sweat glands," and "destructible milieus".
