The Music of Killzone 2

TheSixthAxis: "Ever since our first glimpse of Killzone 2 at E3 2005 we've been desperately hoping that the visuals in the final game match up to the target video. Well, we've already confirmed that this is indeed the case, but as everyone reading TheSixthAxis should know, graphics don't make a game, and only the highest scoring titles here pay special attention to the other facets of videogame production, including spectacular gameplay and awe-inspiring music. So how does Killzone 2 stand up aurally?

Well, let's just say that you won't be disappointed. The game's composer, Joris de Man, should be familiar to anyone how read the credits in Killzone and Liberation, and he's back in fine form here with a fully orchestrated score comprising a new dynamic music system developed by Sony just for this game, and almost 30 minutes of brilliant, emotive tracks recorded at London's Abbey Road studios. Whilst the in-game music is digitally triggered via MIDI to respond to the player's actions in real time, the half hour of cutscenes required live music and de Man managed to get through everything required in just two day's studio time."

7.1 surround sound plus a HDMI 1.3 ports that come with every single ps3 only means the best sounding game every

"Killzone 2 has over 17,000 lines of dialogue"

Still cant get around to how Blu-Ray discs are great for games?

Mr Tretton3339d ago

the music I've heard so far sounds great. I want a soundtrack

Kevin McCallister3339d ago

Glad this isn't being overlooked. The only FPS games I can think of with memorable music would be the Halo series and Goldeneye 007.

gambare3339d ago

For me the first FPS with memorable music was Doom, man... those midis were great.

LeonSKennedy4Life3339d ago

Quake, Unreal Tournament, Resistance, Portal, Prey, Bioshock...BIOSHOCK, N.O.L.F., Metroid Prime 3: Corruption???

gambare3339d ago

oh wow.. almost forgot Quake with the NIN music, now THAT was a great OST.

Kevin McCallister3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

Oh yeah don't know how I forgot Doom. I own or have owned all those other titles in your list, but I don't really remember any music from them with the exception of Portal's ending song. But then again I haven't played those titles anywhere near as much as I have 007, Halo, and Doom.

Sony needs to learn to stop copying:

yeah! those stupid mii like avatars... oh wait....

edit: btw lob, psi ops was released the same year as KZ1 and was rushed out by midway in order to be out first than KZ1 because they started Psi ops after the concept of KZ1.
