CVG: "Sure, look through our 119 Killzone 2 screenshots and you'll notice it's all a little grey. But it's not all like that, promises game director Mathijs de Jonge."
The final 4 stages of the game are completely different just wait for the review embargo to go away so that u can get a full details on that :) Feb 27 = not far away New KZ2 ces video http://au.youtube.com/watch... WOWWWW
They do not need to respond.Killzone2 is being compared to Crysis.It dose not get any better than that.. :) Ps3 games are on the same level as PC games.. :)
Gears of War had a similar issue, but that kind of stuff doesn't matter as long as the game is good! The only people who will let this bother them is the haters. Something alot of gamers may not know (because they haven't experienced real life), when you are in a gun fight, everything gets a tone to it. Usually everything seems darker, or just kind of blends to one particular color. I believe that's what Killzone 2 and Gears were trying to point out! When I say gunfight, I mean when your life is on the line... not shooting at a gunrange or hunting. It's different when you know somebody is trying to kill you.
Gears is almost entirely grey and brown. No complaints from the media there. KZ2 is said to actually change up towards the end and yet all I read are how grey it is or how gloomy it is. Sheesh, damage control by the 360 media fanboys. Don't hate, just get a PS3.
helghan can't be much more grey and miserable than london right now.
@Lifendz - Yeah, that's what you call a double standard, two faced, biased, fanboyism, unfair, hypocritical. Take you pick.
It'll be the top 1% absolute best Grey you'll ever see on a console this gen if it was. I mean, have you seen some of this in the Beta? ...and it gets BETTER?
@lifendz Actually, Gears was critizided a lot for being greying and brownish. On topic, I like the grey look in killzone. It adds to the style and environment of the game.
links or it didn't happen. But I'm aware that some people said it was grey and brownish but not nearly as many people that said it's gorgeous and set the benchmark in graphics. If you don't think there's a double standard then there's not much I can say to you to convince you otherwise. There is a double standard. It's obvious. Things are turning (Gamestop gave MGS4 best graphics) but, for the most part, the media is a bunch of 360 fanboys that look for a way to slam PS3 games while looking for a way to praise 360 games.
Does anyone complain about Saving Private Ryan's colors? This is war people! It's art, not a freaking home movie.
So who cares what they say about a game they have only seen one level of, they will just eat it when the game releases and the only argument they have is a total and utter FAIL!!! Look at MGS4; Everything was, "oh this" and "oh that", then the game comes out and it's "BEST GAME EVER"!!!
@lifendz I dont have links to give you (thats because im at work, no time to search). But I remember everyone sayin the games looks good but brownish (that doesnt mean a negative criticize) But really, I haven't seen a lot of sites criticizing the greyish killzone in a negative way. I know it looks greyish(nobody cant deny it), but to me thats the way this game should look to give it the atmosphere. It looks great.
The feeling one gets upon controlling the character for the first time is hard to describe in Killzone 2. Beta people all know what I'm talking about. There's almost a "is this really a GAME?" feeling.
Even if the whole game was grey, they did it so well I wouldn't mind.
Why are people complaining about the color of a game. That is just ridiculous. That is just the art direction of the game....
when u are in a war its gray black and dirty Not like telly tubbies halo hippy colors People should get off Killzone back Welcome to the next gen Killzone is the start wats next Cant wait to see R3 and God 3 then what ? 3d games what will be sick
when you're in war the color of nature doesn't go into adjustments for the mood...
OPM clearly said that also new KZ2 CES video http://au.youtube.com/watch... WOW
"when you're in war the color of nature doesn't go into adjustments for the mood..." lol that made me laugh.
So true! I don't get why people expect dark, gritty war games to have a massive amount of color saturation and bright, shiny graphical effects. Killzone 2 is about as close as we can get to a fictitiously real war on another planet without it actually being real and filmed on video.
...I found 'xBox 360' Exclusive games in 2008 looking well er erm hmm you know...outdated??? Will Micro$oft fix that for 2009??? ;-D MORE PINK!!! A WAR in PINK and Silly Colours we need!!! Oh we got 'Halo 3' for that!!! ;-D + It's been 2 Months i haven't looked at a 'KillZone 2' Video or any Photos...WHY??? I don't want to spoil the game when i get it;) FPS NEXT-GEN Starts when i say so!!! ;-D + What next??? - 'KILLZONE 3[D]' on PS3;) (Get it??? 3D???) ;)
now that would be funny, "Halo Tubbies"
6/10 rating at best
"" Greyzone 2 "" That is just messed up
This game can be black and white for all i care Day 1 for me Btw any review to this game is below a 9 are not gamers they are just sad bashing pri*ks
day 1 no matter whatever happens
Sony Fanboys say that about every Sony game. If its below a nine, look microsoft paid them or there biased or its a 360 site.
Day 1.....Not Me ..... Midnight it will be in my ps3 :)
Screw your day one, or your midnight. First minute for me. I'm gonna make sure I'm first in line XD.
First microseconds for me bud!! :) XD
Even as a 360 fan I can accept that this game looks good. But I think the devs are holding back the best bits. We've been seeing the same grey screen shots for a year, I think GG are going to hit everyone with a massive knockout punch once the other levels are revealed.
If only PP had the same brain as u.. :p
only if all the reviewers were like you you do know edge/eurogamer/1up/gamespot? i just wish they were unbiased like you
Bubble for P4
And yeah, I think the devs are holding back a lot of the game so as not to spoil it when actual consumers get it home and realize there is a lot more to it than what they saw on the internet. Smart, really, to do it that way. In this situation, the only people who "spoil" things are the players themselves (read: beta testers) for other people. I've read numerous previews that have stated the end of the game is one of the most epic story progression moments they've ever experienced in at least an FPS game, if not gaming in general. To everyone else: If you don't buy this, or at least give yourself the chance to play it objectively and unbiased, you're not a gamer.
Same here P4, Killzone 2 looks like my kinda game, though I am in favor of the 360. Maybe one day, there will be a universal console and large corporations (M$, Sony, and Nintendo) will battle each other over who can develop the best software and games. *Dream* Til, then I'll have to wait until RE5 and Halo Wars. Halo Wars, ^drool^
You'll get a bubble from me as well. Well said.
I'm in a generous mood as well:-p I never had a problem with the palette of GeOW 1 & 2, Resistance 1, nor any other game. Grey and brown are more "realistic" colors so for the sake of realism there shouldn't be any complaints.
Just think of the whole MGS4 debacle. "OMG THE WHOLE GAMEZ GONNA BE BROOOOOOOWN WHAAAA, WHAAAAA, WHAAAAAA!!" Look what happened. The fanboys took a few good brutal smacks to the mouth.
You beat me to it. I guess it was just logical.
how beautiful the E3 05 trailer looked with the day time lighting? I want more levels like that! And many have said that it has even surpassed the E3 05 trailer!!! I can't wait for this game! 3 weeks to go to play the demo LOL!
Bubbles for every one that loves killzone 2 :)
I dunno if I "love" it yet. But I'm certainly impressed by what I've seen. Do I get bubbles?
whatever happened to the concept of art direction? If its grey, black, brown ... so what? War is colorful? I guess only in Halo.
I agree art direction in this game looks Amazing. I really can't wait for it. I love the feeling this game gives me!
all i know is that KZ2 will be awesome and if you want intense colors in your game wait for Flower
Well here we go again, this is a game and this is it's art direction. War is just as colorful as the world is, you don't lose color cause of war or it doesn't all the sudden get dark and cloudy because of war. I think the game looks great how it is.
Man its like the gears of brown crap the game isnt supposed to have colour, you cant just put colour in every goddamn game, and even if you did there would be fanboys saying "its too colourfull and not realistic" face it there just clutching at straws.
Exactly, it's not a platform game for the Wii.
Funny i have not been seeing to many 360 trolls in killzone 2 news lately.I guess the Ballet Of Death has hit them were it hurts.. :)
welcome to our side
I'm on the 'good games' side.
+Bubbles for teh Jenzo
so....mgs4 was all greenish...and gears of war was mostly like that to.
It's all art direction and story envelopment. Like MGS4, I have a feeling most people won't get why Killzone 2 is the way it is until they actually play it.
There are desert levels, among the other settings in the game. There is full sunlight coming down, painting a different picture than just a bleak, grey mechanical environment. Trust me when I say that the game has a lot more in store than what we have seen thus far... If you think about it for a second, the very reason why the game is grey can be attributed to the story, where the Helghast experiment with weather so much that the industrial sectors of Helghan are permanently covered in dark clouds (among other reasons).
As long as the visuals are consistent with the storyline it's all good. Helghan is a polluted, depressing place and the environments should reflect that.
But they had to make the story this way cause of the certain situations at hand and color being one of them.
Killzone dev responds to 'gay' critics.
Mature comment, don't you think? ;)
By March 1st there will be no more doubters. Sure the odd hater in denial will remain, but doubters will be extinct.
one thing this proves is that people who tried to judge the outcome of this console war based solely on hardware specifications didn't see the forest for the trees. They completely missed the boat on tandem (parallel) processing theory and just became slaves to specs. That's great for the hardware manufacturers because it keeps their sales up every year but doesn't really do enough to push the medium. I believe this is what GG and by extension Sony have shown on their platform. What other people call impossible Sony and their developers call challenging. Ultimately I believe people on both sides are putting way too much energy into the constant flaming and mountain of poorly written articles that go on in an effort to bury Sony. The only thing that matters is what you bring to the table. Sony is delivering, Microsoft is not. No amount of bashing, spinning or lying is gonna change that.
Just look. They supported GG with high production costs. GG wanted to EXCEL in details everywhere where possible. If that alone is not being serious, then be my guest and take it from here. Running around for 3rd party exclusives ISN'T being serious, it's being desperate. MS may have also generated an aftermath shock. Devs have lately been laid back due to the paychecks they have been receiving, GTA devs and Squarenix. See what I'm trying to get at? Hint, motivation or lack of.
So MS doesnt deliver, but Sony does? Are you talking about delivering on a game that has been around for 4 years and still isnt out yet? I dont follow...
No he's talking about how Sony have lofty ambitions and some people say try to set the bar to unachievable heights, bringing on scorn and ridicule. But just one look at Killzone in action says they know what they were doing all along, and the haters were wrong, all along. In fact the only mistake I can see they made other than a touch of arrogance, was firing Krazy Ken because of the bad publicity at the time. Turns out just about everything he put in motion is working now. I bet Nostradamis was ridiculed in his time too. Lots of great figures in history were. Killzone is more than just the best looking, most highly polished game you've ever seen on a console, its vindication.
Just wait till the FINAL version of God Of War 3 is shown.
hopefully in 3D!!!! :)
IF the game is grey, fine, who cares? As long as it's consistent with what the direction, the developers are trying to present. It's been confirmed that the game has a variety of richness as the game progresses and that's fine too. Either way, the game will be mines soon. ^_^ By the way, I'm curious, but who started this "grey" crap?
First time I really heard it was regarding Gears of War. Same thing with bald space marines.
