IGN AU: Killzone 2 Review

Killzone 2 was always designed to be a system seller. It was the title that Sony banked on way back in 2005 during that infamous 'target-render' trailer announcement, providing a tantalising glimpse of what might be, or at very least, what developer Guerrilla Games were aiming for. Years later, in the face of expectations both positive and negative, Killzone 2 has achieved its ambitious visual fidelity and immersive, yet cinematic presentation. But is it a shooter worth your time?

So this is a good sign for Killzone 2.

Well written review, and they gave the graphics its due, even though I agree it tends to be the least important category.

Someone give Mesh1 some vaseline I think he's in pain!

on topic: I think its a acceptable score considering these guys are tough reviewers.

Bubble Buddy3582d ago

Great score. I also noticed that most EU reviews are much more less generous on scores for all games.

Gray23582d ago

Yeah, plus they gave Gears 2 an 8.9 if that means anything

Would've thought maybe a tad higher score.

Although the Aussies are tough(Don't know why), and this one beats Halo 3 out score wise, so big thumbs up there.

THIS IS HELGHAST!

Not bad, not bad at all

floppyfeet3582d ago

you missed this part then

"When you strip back the incredible graphics and in-your-face production values,there is very little that pushes Killzone 2 above games like Gears of War 2, Resistance 2, Halo 3 or Crysis in terms of gameplay "

Don't quote straight from the review. People will disagree for some reason. They probably think you're 'trolling' by quoting this word for word.

You're 100% correct. Pretty cool, huh?!
All the great gameplay of Gear2/Halo3/Resistance2/Crysis but with far better graphics and production values.
Outstanding!

Edit: @ butbutbutthecell
He is trolling, obviously. That's what he does. You should be quick to pick up on that. He's trying to diminish this achievement by cherry picking quotes, but what he accomplishes is just highlighting what good company this game is in. No one ever said that Killzone 2 was going to vary from the standard FPS format so the fact that it lives up to these great games with unmatched graphics and production value is tremendous.

WOAH!!

Thats a bit harsh even for IGN, i wonder what GS, Edge and GT will give it

Floppy, let me help you out in interpreting this quote:

Strip away the graphics and you still have a little bit of features/gameplay that still pushes this game OVER those games mentioned. Add in the graphics and look at what you have - KILLZONE.
