Wired Review: Killzone 2 a Thoughtful, Atmospheric Shooter

Wired: "Killzone 2 does perform a lot of the same old tricks as other console shooters. But it does them right, and it does them with noticeable style. The well-paced tactical combat and strong narrative make for an enthralling single-player campaign, while the varied multiplayer modes provide depth that will entertain PlayStation 3 fans for quite some time."

Didnt you know?

They wasted all the 10s on last year games and thought:

´´Man! We might of screwed up giving many high scores this year to games that didnt deserve them. Well, we´ll make emmends next year!``

Now, they nitpick a visually flawless games with little bits of ´´...poor texture here, a pop it there...`` and ´´... a weak story, a mild conjecture of events...``. I mean, I´m not saying the reviews are bad but since talking about other console game would fuel a flame war I rather compare these arguments with another Sony exclusive like Resistance 2. Right now, R2 sits undefeated in my PS3 bluray drive for hardcore-long-time-online-pawn age but the fact that Killzone is getting more or less the same review score like Resistance is troublesome for me. Im not saying R2 is a bad game! On the contrary, its an amazing game but Killzone seems to go further in terms of graphics and more realistic gameplay. If I were to compare to the X360 games i´d say R2 for the Halo3 since they are both old school kinda of cartoony looking game, and a more CoD4 to Killzone 2 due to more realistic settings.

My rant!

not just about graphics and gameplay.....some reviewers take into account the overall feel they get from the game. Its a matter of, is the whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Wired are one of the few publications that had the nuts to give Gears 2 < 9,just a fact for anyone that's going to question their honesty.

When can we expect your 6/10s?Timberland needs his rest

Websites like Kotaku, 1up, Gamespot, and Gamedaily are waiting for the other websites to release their scores. That way, they can calculate how low they need to rate KZ2 in order to reduce its metascore to below that of Halo 3 and Gears 2.

Edit: Well, and it takes time making up nitpicky excuses to justify low scores.

Edge Magazine! Since it's a 95 on meta, 4/10 confirmed!

BMS843574d ago

I think even people who are not really fan of FPS's will buy this game, just for the graphics and to show their friends:)
