X-Play have reviewed Killzone 2 and given it 5 out of 5
last time when they reviewed the original Killzone, they gave it a 3 out of 5 i believe.
lol they gave liberation 40/100 according to metacritic, a little too harsh for a psp title as great as that one.
Chalk another 100 for the metacritic
What planet am I on ? Is this still E-aarth ?
5............................. ....................out of 5 :D (said in adam sesslers voice)
I completely expected that they would give the game a 5. They don't do half stars, and they couldn't justify giving the game a 4, so this is no surprise. What did bother me though is the pot shots at ps3 gamers. Referring to them as all fanboys. They said, "Congratulations PS3 owners you finally have something to spend your money on besides HS action figures and anti depressants." They have given plenty of PS3 exclusives 5/5, saying that everyone should own them. Yet here they tout the tired argument that the PS3 has no games, and so all PS3 owners are so depressed that they are all on medication. FO!!!
"...they gave liberation 40/100..." Yeah, I can confirm that they did indeed (or a 2-out-of-5, to be exact), because it made me do a double-take when I saw it a couple of days ago. I'm playing through KZ: Liberation for the first time right now as a sort of, err, appetizer - for February 27th. Currently on the penultimate level, and I can vouch that it's an amazing, detailed and addictive game. The only gripe(?) I have about it is that the difficulty level is oftentimes ramped up to the "About to Smash my PSP with a Crowbar" volume...which is specifically the reason I was checking it out online; wanted to see if others found the game as tricky as I did, or whether I really DID suck THAT badly. To the relief of my ego, the perception of it being a difficult game appears to be the general consensus. Either that, or we ALL suck THAT badly. ;) Nice to see KZ2 getting the 5/5 it apparently deserves. To be honest, I was expecting them to throw out a 4/5; I'm still trying to recover from the shock of witnessing the 5/5 X-Play (deservedly!) gave Resistance 2.
...is AWESOME. I just pre-ordered mine today and can't wait till the fifth to play the demo.
Franken, it's because the media is all about the self fulfilling prophecy of "ZOMG PS3 has no gamez!!!" Once again, I laugh at anyone who thinks there ISN'T bias in the media with the constant crap comments like that.
Wow, what was she trying to say on the intro of the review. We need anti-depressants, for what is she trying to imply???
um we are not in 2007 where they can say PS3 has no games and even in that year the PS3 had great games.. but I expected them to give KZ2 a 5/5 They wouldn't give it a 4 considering almost every review so far has been praising the game and they really wouldn't be able to justify there 4/5 score...
They are probably mad at Sony fans for calling them out on their constant trumpeting for anything 360. They even have gone so far as to go out of their way to defend some of the 360 games. They blatantly favor the 360 especially that 360 diehard fanboy Blair. You can tell that it bothered them to give the score they gave by taking a shot at Sony. They pretty much implied that Sony hardly has any great games and their fans are troubled but it's a great game even though it's a rarity. Sounds like a comment a sour fanboy would make. It's a little ironic of them to call out fanboys when they display similar traits.
I agree, I don't care if it was a joke or if it was serious both comments were definitely uncalled for and in case they didn't know this game isn't just for PS3 fanboys, my friend who just got a PS3 in late December is really looking forward to this game and it will be his first PS3 game (He just borrows mine or plays Left 4 Dead on his 360 for now) I think that X-Play is on its way to losing a lot of viewers and respect if they keep that up.
i have a ps3 and i agree with the statement. the only game on ps3 that has held my interest for the duration was ratchet and clank and MAYBE MGS4. resistance i beat, heavenly sword i beat, and uncharted i beat, but i thought they were mediocre and i just did it so i could say i did. and R2 was so boring and typical i couldn't finish it. I did really regret getting my ps3 for a long time. now i think it's cool this game is getting good reviews, but so did a lot of other games that i definitely don't agree with. and something about the videos reviews of this game makes me think what they are saying and what i am seeing don't match up. the guns look very standard, and the ones that claim originality...aren't. the rail gun is straight from Half Life 2 and it was even in Turok (the bow did the same thing). the electric gun looks terrible and probably should have just not been included and i'm sure i'll only use it long enough to get the achievements. and i swear i saw ally AI shooting at nothing on more than one occasion. I really need a game for ps3 that will keep me playing for more than just a few hours. i want it to be good, but i'm still VERY skeptical. i guess i'll make my final decision when i actually get to PLAY the demo and not just jump on the hype train.
Regardless of if YOU agree with it or not Sense, it's an uncalled for, petty, and fanboyish statement, period.
finally something to spend money on other than heavenly sword action figures and anti-depressants? what a biatch!
disconnected their MICROSOFT LIFE SUPPORT TUBES long enough to make a coherent review and it's got the "natives" up in arms....just loook at all the whining in the comments. HA HA HA that no figured stone blob Morgan Webb always talking out of her arse off cue....the same way she tried to bad mouth LBP LOL LOL - she didn't know what to say because it wasn't a Microsuck game HA HA. She's just mad at everything because she looks like a pocket door with eyes! HA HA HA HA HA
Give it up to mr. sark, go to g4 and read the review, very thorough and will get you amped for this game beyond belief.
I shut it off after i heard morgan webb's openning comment. Not going to watch that crap when they openly bash ps3 owners from the get go. Sure 5/5 is a great score but that kind of fanboyism is not needed.
Blindmonkey, only f*nboys would get offended by a comment like that, funny no? /on topic Another great score for what is looking to be another great shooter. What a great time to be a gamer.
I called it,5/5.
i think you guys are really over reacting to their statements. they said it was a great game. a 5/5? come on. so what if they said fanboy. i don't think they meant it to be derogatory. the way we use it and the way it used to be used are very different. also, what they said about the games...well if you like games for the system, that's great. and they've rated other games pretty high before so i don't' think they even believe that is true. but i think they, just like any other show, do what they can to appeal to their audience. and i'm sure they do plenty of market research to see who their target is. some ppl probably do feel the way they said. either way, it really doesn't matter. the bottom line is they gave this game a perfect score and most of you seem to be pretty well convinced this will be a great game, so just leave it at that. if you take this much offense from some statements from ppl who are on your side, then they are probably right, you are a fanboy. just relax and enjoy the game. it's only a few weeks away!
This game transcends Sony/MS bias. These reviews, the ones that pick the game to shreds, are because the game has A LOT to live up to. By not apologizing for the e3 trailer, and instead saying "No, that's what our game is going to be like," GG essentially pulled the pin on the Hater Grenade. To some reviewers it was like being given Carte Blanche to scrutinize every aspect of this game, and to express their very valid concerns like - the bathroom that can only be accessed if you throw a grenade at a pile of chairs and forcefully shimmy your way through a corridor of rubble has terrible low-res textures on the toilet seat, its completely game breaking, trust us. Its not enough for them that the game comes extremely close, matches, or is maybe even a little better than the e3 trailer. It must mercilessly destroy the trailer to earn their full respect... even though they open their reviews with "Killzone 2 surpasses most other shooters by leaps and bounds" or something similarly conflicting with their score. X-Play: good review, they managed to get me more pumped up to play it without throwing more gas on the already huge Hype-fire.
Every review i've heard is exactly the same. They always mention the "infamous" trailer (and anyone with any intelligence knew it wasn't real) and how they needed to live up to it. then they say, "while it falls short of the original trailer it is still a gorgeous game." then they go on to talk about how great the multiplayer is. I think ppl need to realize this game isn't going to be ground breaking, it's just going to be a very solid experience that will probably keep thousands of ppl very busy for a long time. I am excited for this game cuz: A) i need a good game on my ps3 that keeps me interested for more than 6-8 hours. and B) cuz i miss playing classic style FPS and really dominating the nubs. BUT NOT because everyone is praising this game like it's the second coming of Jesus. People gotta get over this crazy hype thing. This is what happens when every big "Blockbuster" game sony has is about to come out. Then the games come out and they can't possibly hope to live up to the ridiculous hype. if this game doesn't end the war in iraq and cure cancer it's going to fall short of these crazy expectations. Leave it alone and just wait for it to come out. everyone will be happy. nobody will be surprised or blown away. just relax and enjoy.
Killzone 2 seems to hang strong.
Indeed. I don't think you can justify a 4/5 for this game (since I don't think they go by .5's).
The only voice of reason in games reviews.
*wipes eyes* Wow..
it doesnt deserve a 5/5
You dont deserve 6 bubbles.
It deserves more I know but whatcha gonna do?
5/5 isn't good enough for this game ;)
dont taint peter griffin's image.
Jager tried to rape me last night on Home. He thought I was a little kid. =s
Damn guys, chill was I the only one who realized it was sarcasm.
lol lemme steal ur bubbles.
Wow wii, for starters, Jager isnt my PSN name, you dont have a PS3, and i think Home fricken sucks.
**And the Sony Snipers picked up their rifles and marched on to victory** **The war was over, the haters and doubters corpses where all pilled up on top each other, we can finally rest in peace**
Lol this one review changed KZ2 from a 93 to a 94 on Metacritic http://www.metacritic.com/g...
oh dont worry, it will stay at a 93 since edge and 1up are biased and all. EDIT: oh wait, dont forget gamespot, they'll say theres too much variety, especially in the multiplayer, they will also state that not carrying more than 2 weapons is bad, since they are like little boys who think that you can carry more than 8 weapons in a game.
those will ensure that it drops a bit ;)
Yeah the 6/10 from Variety, 8/10 from edge, 8/10 from 1up will lower down the metacritic score.
@ AV Onion club... The name made me laugh.
it's edge, gamespot and gametrailers.com
guyz gamespot gave MGS4 goty and gave Resistance 2 the same score as gears 2 so I dont think they will be biased on this
if those sites complain about only carrying 1 major weapon and too much variety, then they are biased and reviewing the game for what it isn't and not what it is. KZ2 is supposed to be more realistic than anything, so last I checked, a person couldn't possbily carry 10 weapons at once and engage in war with the mobility of only carrying one weapon. i bet if GG cut out variety, there'd be some complaining there as well. stupid biased reviewers, they are gona be the only ones not playing a great game because they are too much of p*ssies to man up and admit that a PS3 game really puts the xbox 360 to shame, and this is just the beginning.
says 93 to me
Wtf is happening today,did Microsofts Checks bounce or something?
it probably did. they spent 50 million dollars on DLC, so they ran out of money to try to stop these ratings from getting so high.
are you stupid? a rifle in one pocket a rocket launcher in the other 2 pistols in the back pocket 2 pistols in the shoes uhmm uhmmm.. yeah.. you cant carry that much guns =]
It is funny. Agreed.
Not unless you have oversized and armored penties that allow you to carry a big drill or a shotgun =P
he said combine like voltron. I like the olsen twins joke as well lol
"Good news PlayStation 3 owners, you finally have something to spend your money on other than Heavenly Sword action figures and anti-depressants" HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA
but look on your face when Mass Effect 2 goes multilplat will be funnier ;) XD
bom bop suprize oHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
i think you need to find something better to spend your money on other than warranty extensions. EDIT: Thats at least 10 multiple accounts you got pp. The mods should ban your IP address from this site.
i found that comment out of place since they 5/5'd Little Big Planet and Resistance 2. It hasnt really been that long.
How will you live now that Killzone 2 came back on a higher metascore than your beloved GOW2, Xbot? ;)
Ya, that is funny sence i have spent my money on alot of games since heavenly sword. Oh, wait i didn't even buy heavenly sword.
I didn't even know there was HS action figures.
Xbug 3rd60 has no games for 2009 LMAO.
Off topic: Man that intro beat was crazy lol real hip hop and sh!t On topic: Hmm it seems microSCUM didn't pay their checks in time. All their close partnered website have somehow managed to give KZ2 a score they normally wouldn't.
i'm sure they couldn't accept the check this time. we all know if they gave Killzone 2 a 4/5 (80%), it would be one of the lowest score if not thee lowest score for Killzone 2 so far, then their review integrity would be questioned by EVERYBODY. They gotta give the PS3 good scores sometimes. those jerks. >:]
lol my comment "it doesnt deserve a 5/5".... it deserves a 6/5 so give me back my boubles. lol
it's too late dude, you already hurt my feelings. :'( =P
Wow, I did not expect that, I would've put $50 on 4.5/5.
I would have loved to take that bet with you. That would have been easy money won. They don't do half stars.
