Ravi Sinha writes: "Hype is not one weapon, but many for an illustrious company. It can be a sword for slaying the competition – "If you only need to play one FPS this year, this is the one" – or it can become a shield – "Truth be told, it's nothing new but it's still great fun".
"In the hands of the gaming world, hype has become a major cause for slander against a game. The game we're talking about is Killzone 2. Its one thing to say this game won't change the world forever; it's quite another to say it outright sucks. The purpose of this article is simply to clarify the various 'fictions' surrounding Killzone 2, and the various 'facts', which explain what's really what."
