GamingNexus has posted their review of Killzone 2 and came away fairly impressed with the game. The only lament is the lack of co-op gameplay as everything else in the game is top notch
XBox 360 fans don't get banned permanently to the Open zone like Lightning the guidelines in N4g are a joke and yay another 100 for this game that deserves it.
i will never understand people who review games based on coop...all of a sudden its mandatory? gtfo theres less then a handful of games with coop, now all of a sudden every shooter has to have it?
why can't people review whats there! thats what your getting...review that!! forget co-op though co-op wud be really nice this game is amazing without that anyway :) well it will be amazing
It`s up, EU ps store.
The reason why everyone whines about coop is that game seems built for coop. More so than other games. In a lot of the videos it always seems like you are with your squad in fact you are part of a 4 man squad. Then there is that one guy that always follows you around and you can even do team work stuff like pull each other up a ledge. The way the game was designed its like they had coop in mind but they gave up on it half way through game development. Lack of coop is a gripe because for a LOT of people it would just make the game more fun than it is now. Does that mean the game isn't fun now? NO but for a lot of people it makes it better. Imagine getting a bowl of fries but no ketchup. Not everyone needs ketchup but the fries will sit there begging for ketchup. Sure you can still judge the fries as great without the ketchup on it but that won't change the fact that you would rather have eaten it with ketchup. All games can't have all we want. I wish Halo 3 had better graphics, I wish bioshock was actually a good shooter (shooting in that game is beyond mediocre) i wish RE5 had better controls. But all these games are still good games but that won't stop me from wanting that little extra to make it better. Lets try not to accept the no coop as cool in hopes that guerilla will be pressured into adding it in. My guess will be it will be buyable DLC:(
As a 360 owner, this game does look fantastic, but adding co-op would just heighten the experience. I also agree, co-op is not mandatory, and World at War's co-op sucked balls.
If it had co-op, i would buy two... and "accidentally" throw a nade at my teammate's feet. Then pretend it was an accident. We all do this... heheheh
It has to add up another 100 on Metacritic, GamingNexus counts, at least it did for Halo 3 which was rated A- (90).
Yeah, that's if GamingNexus scales their reviews the same as 1up. It could translate into a 9.5. Still though, its great!
No, I believe it translates into a 100 at Metacritic.
Great review for a great game
DEMO IS NOW UP!!!!!!!!! 1207MB
Killzone 2 demo went live just now ya!!!
OH SH*T KILLZONE 2 DEMO TONIGHT BABY! this games is one of the many reasons I finally got a ps3 man Im pumped
I have to admit i am going to obsesses over this game until the demo is over, THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE THE SH!T
No co-op? Surely then they mentioned Bot support. Right?
OMG IT ONLY GAVE KZ2 AN A+! IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A 10/10! I KNOW A+ IS THE SAME AS 10/10, BUT IT'S STILL NOT A 10! CLEARLY THERE'S BIAS AGAINST THE PS3 AND SONY HERE! Note: You may detect a hint of sarcasm within the previous post.
KILLZONE 2 DEMO IS LIVE NOW!!!
don't you think that gears of war and call of duty 5 looks better than this ?
Call of Duty 4/5 don't look better than a LOT of games this generation. Nobody cares because they're great fun to play.
COD4/WAW just look sweet because of the 60fps. nothing else is really special about the graphics.
so the demo is up? have fun guys. i'm stuck at my parents' place... far away from my ps3 :|
dude that sucks, the demo is great...
Good review. Also, this score will be added at Metacritic and I believe it will count as a 100. At least that is what they normally do.
they gave it A/A+ which should be scaled to 95/100
it would be flawless, but since it is on the ps3, reviewers have a problem.
