Killzone 2 wins critics over

PlayStation Gamer UK Writes: "With the embargo for some US websites and european websites lifted today, the first real wave of reviews for Killzone 2 has hit and i'm sure Sony will be very happy right now. Killzone 2 has had nothing but positive reviews with high profile websites such as Eurogamer and IGN praising the game. "

But this is only the beginning, some unknown sites are going to give a bad score, just to get some hits.

I expect it to be around 92-93 at the end. Although I think 96 is more suitable if compared to other titles. Reviewers are DEFINITELY not giving the game inflated score, like for halo or gtaiv. Although we already expected that they won't anyway.

Kotaku
Edge
and UGO

Eurogamer redeemed themselves when they gave me a LBP beta key a few months back. So what? I can be bought.

GTA, Gears 2, Fallout 3, Prince of Persia.

None of those games were "perfect", even if you use the "at this point in time reasoning".

The media seems more cautious now. Shame that they had to start with KZ 2. This game went through a lot and the developers proved everyone wrong. The sheer effort and beauty of the title should humble even the biggest fanboy.

Sadly, it won't though. And there will be bitter, refuse to eat crow reviews, which is a shame.

Ignore the company associated with this title for a sec, and just look at what GG have achieved.

This game will be the closest thing to playing an interactive war cinema that any of us have ever experienced.

My congratulations to Guerrilla.

P.S. @ below. You're right, but that's the American media and how it is. Gears of War 3 would/ will be hyped beyond Jesus. That is an exception. I still expect that reviewers won't be handing out dozens of 10s this year IN GENERAL.

Is the media biased? or the media is going to be more cautious?

The first one is more credible.

Aclay3545d ago

Once I saw the first in-game demonstration for Killzone 2, I never doubted the game.

I know a lot of people were still stuck in the past and just couldn't get over the fact that Guerrilla had never really made a "AAA quality game" and that KZ2 was going to flop, but with Insomniac, Polyphony Digital and Sony Santa Monica in the mix with Killzone 2, there was no way the game was gonna fail. Developers can always redeem themselves and Guerrilla did just that with KZ2.

Kudos to GG, and other PS3 devs. that I mentioned above that helped make this game of EPIC proportions. February 27th couldn't come soon enough!

BattleAxe3545d ago

I'm the guy in here that always holds Sony to account! Now having said that, I think that Killzone 2 proves that the PS3 is the best! Not even HALO: Odd Street can save the 360 now ...........mmmuahahahahaha

GameGambits3545d ago

This is the game this console generation that will leave many gamers estatic with it down the road in terms of nostalgia.

It'll have that same effect Zelda's, Metal Gears, Marios, Half Life's, etc have had.

If you don't own a PS3 yet, you still have a month to scrape together the cash. Do whatever it takes, because according to the bombardmant of reviews today, this is worth every cent.

Yeah that little troll is useless

Montrealien3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

to be honest, all you guys that take this console war seriously and are grade a fantarts are, well, just as useless as the tard you are refering to. And I am here to remind you guys that, and don`t you ever forget it.

and I can`t wait for my Killzone 2 demo code, this game will be sick! It deserves the praise, Guerilla set a high bar and seem to have met it, gj Guerilla!

PoSTedUP3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

and if YOU, take anything seriously, you have become a hypocrite, football, hockey, w/e etc. its a hobbie, and im sure you like something in life witch is no different than routing for your fav team or playing B-ball.

so just dont post comments then if you gunna be a hypocrite and call someone useless, how "usefull" are you telling someone whos enjoying something they they are doing that they are useless? your just ignorant dude.

Montrealien3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

@PoSTedUP

your so cute. Those sony underwear a little to tight? You seem edgy, tight underwear will do that you know. Time to change to grown up true gamer boxers. And I root for a team called gaming, there are no sides, just good games ya fantart.

PoSTedUP3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

this aint about sony dude, and dont talk to me like your some kind of internet pervert ok.

you route for gaming!? and so now you are more "useful" than someone who routes for one console? man gtfo man for real.

your calling ma a fantard and then telling ME to grow up? lolololol aw man thats piceless.

Montrealien3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

I`ll talk to you however the f*ck I want, and you are more then welcome to do the same thing, fantart! ;P

I have never considered myself usefull here, that has never been my point, there is no point, and there never will be. You`ll understand sooner or later.

PoSTedUP3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

so you enjoy talking to me like a pedophile? your digging yourself into a hole man XD. your 40year old little boy touching self has got to go man. so are you related to MJ by any chance? your a little f****** loony man.

Montrealien3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

you`re the one that thinks I`m talking to you like a pedophile, that`s your problem, and you should look deep within yourself as to why you see that.

think about that for a sec.

that was my last bubble, back to work. cheers.

@below

umm, yeah, you saw all that in what I said eh? cute. ever hear of the Rorschach inkblot test?

PoSTedUP3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

calling a dude "cute" is only the half of why you shouldnt be allowed in the community. and talking about my undergarments regardless out of nowhere, is something that makes you come off as a pervert.

hey mine too, do you enjoy you working at never never land? MJ must be proud of you XD.

eidt: whats that? damn i think i hear MJ calling you. nope, hm is that what MJ calls it?

It doesn't matter who gives this game a bad review. It matters who missis out of this game. Shame some people can't afford a playstation 3

Zeevious3545d ago (Edited 3545d ago )

with a SonyRewards promotion. No interest/finance so that's around $30 a month.
Skip 3 fast-food meals a month for the year. You don't need all those extra calories when your busy gaming.

If you can't afford that, I hope any true gamer can find a friend with a PS3 and can check it out. There are just too many great games like this to miss out on!

xTKxMZDawg1233546d ago

Yes, and this article is further justified by this evidence. The N4G review averages.

Killzone 2=9.4

Gears of War 2=9.2

Gears 2 received a 8.9 on IGN AU, by the way, as well as multiple 8's from other sites, some being just as credible. Gears is getting Killzoned.

Metacritic is looking like a similar outcome.

Go play Ninja Blade or some expansion packs, 360 owners. Or watch some Kodu Videos. Oh, and you could start spazzing out over sales figures.

guiltyspark3545d ago

the score is being boosted nub

DavidMacDougall3545d ago

Like the 360 sites didn't do that to Gaow1.5

Go cry somewhere else

Montrealien3545d ago

ninja blade looks like a good game, From do some decent action games. Oh! nd I`ll be hitting Up Killzone 2 very soon also and Gear of War 2 is a great game that deserve if high scores, just like Killzone seems to be getting.

If you are proud a game you like got .2 more then a game you hate, you = retarded.

guiltyspark3545d ago

saying the average at this site matters when 9/10 articles that appear on this site are killzone articles....

Is it really a stretch that you toddlers are going to link every single blog post that gives this game a 10/10 and count it as a review?

simple fact is this

The game was hyped to be 10/10 everywhere , to be the best shooter on consoles hands down. Now all of you are backtracking to accepting mediocre ( for a game that cost 60 million dollars and 5 years of development) reviews.

Seriously , every day its damage control with you kids

"bu but gears got killzoned lol ahah"

Thats great , funny that gears took about 2 years to make and half the budget and killzone is BARELY able to beat it.

But i hope you enjoy your 8 maps of multiplayer because you guys are going to be bored sh!tless of that game in about 3 weeks.

DavidMacDougall3545d ago

You wrote all that and all i hear is your tears hitting the floor
