Gamerlimit brings you the inside, hands-on scoop for the Killzone 2 demo! Is it multi-player? How long is the demo? What is the sample level like? All the answers and more are inside; check it out!
It's out?! I can't use my voucher yet.
Been on the EU store for a while (DL now, 60%), if you have an account get it from there, saves on waiting. Regarding the article, I always find demo impressions slightly pointless, DL the demo and try it for yourself. But sounds like he really enjoyed it.
In the US
Downloading now.... taking f***ing forever though.
The thing that is important for me that most of the time gets overlooked is the sound. I love Socom: Confrontation's sound effect. And it seems to me like this game has awesome sounds as well. Music, explosions, gun fire, and the way it sound when you shoot someone :)
lol, i agree that the game is good. but the guy that wrote this review sounds like he is about ready to take his pants off and start lickin his ps3. from the way this guy talks you'd think the demo is the second coming of christ. edit: anyone know if it's true they'll be releasing a patch to make this game co-op? i'm not sure why they would even consider releasing this game without co op mode.
@locos85 i thought the sound effects were good, but i didn't like the music. it reminds me of a cross between star wars and Indiana Jones... but it just didn't fit the whole look of killzone for me. its hard to explain. I loved the graphics, though i was not quite as blown away by them as i thought i would. i loved the animation, prob the most impressive thing for me in the game. the music score was the only thing i didn't really like at all. i would still give the game a 10/10 overall but its not with out fault.
and other countries not part of the european store, this is what you get for cheating the system and not playing by the rules, you ruin the fun for everyone.
I agree that they're quasi-pointless. But, it adds to the fun, and the tension of a new game. For instance, I'm at work, and now I'm even more excited!
Yeah I know, I'm not against them or anything, simply easier to try it yourself. But your right, they do help with the excitment.
Hell yeah i'm at work to and now I want to go home and play the crap out of that demo.
after that oooohhhhh killzone u gonna get alll the lov from daddy.. lolz
I ve downloaded and i give my opinion dont hate me. The demo is short but awesome looking game, i love the bodys physics :P. But its not the best game i played. Theres better out there that i think are better. It is one of the best looking games, but thats my opinion. Its still a buy.
It's sad that you had to put in 2 disclaimers for fanboys. I hope no one rips on you because you had an opinion. I'm glad you shared it!
well, I think it will get very intense as you move in different level. Demo is the first level. So, it got to be easy.
i can agree with you daz i love the game to death and its still not the best game i ever played that game for me is god of war.
chrijc. very true :0 n4gzz I know what your saying but im on about the demo not the full game. But its still a must buy for any ps3 owner.]
Graphics were really good, but it was a bit too short, I didn't get to the sixaxis bit I've seen because it ended before then (or is that just me)... In fact I don't remember there being rumble in the demo - maybe it's just me. But yeh by ending the demo after the bridge was lowered, would have showcased that sixaxis use, would have made it a better demo. But yeh I'm sure it will sell well regardless, but I think I will pass on K2.. I am not into shooters anyway.
demo is waaay too short but i love the game!
my lord. :p
eagle read the post again plz. you cant you do that?
mate demo suppose to be short.... i dont know why ppl complaining about the demos length..... first they were dying to play it ... and now they complain about the length.... (may be they are excited) its human being nature.... cant be happy in any situation.... always complain.. peace a happy gaming.... ps : by the way today is my birthday..... its one of the best birthday present for me ...... lolzzzz
Looking forward to trying this out!
KZ2 demo=F#CKING EPIC!!! The graphics are the best to date Sound is star wars EPIC Bullet impact is absolutely satisfying It's much better in native 1080i. The display and textures are much cleaner and better. People should not miss out on this masterpiece. The amount of sh!t going on at once is jaw dropping really beautiful game and this is only the demo.
F**KING AMAZING it is!!! ;-P The beginning was Amazing!!! (Loved the Rumble on the DS3 Pad on that bit) +It looked like the 1st Video of KillZone 2!!! ;-P +Rumble with the Guns was Amazing +The Explosions were Amazing!!! ;-P +The guy on Fire, looked REAL the Fire +Loved the Feel of the Guns +Blowing up the Bridge was Amazing!!! ;-D +That water looked REAL!!! ;-D +Their Orange Eyes was well cool +The way they Died was amazing +The Blood on the screen looked REAL +The Music was cool SOOOOOOO MUCH happened i can't remember all of it!!! ;-D +It felt different to other FPS??? More real, it felt. Yeah, xBots...Hmm...'COD:Modern Warfare 2' will look as good as this on the xBox 360 then??? ;-D ;-D ;-D MY @SS!!! ;-D
I know, all those truly are quite impressive. I'm completely in love with that magnum, I played it through about 5x already, trying out different things. If you want to find something weird that doesn't make sense, try sprinting with the magnum and look at the shadow on the floor in the sun light, they both look great but they don't make sense LOL
+The shadows looked AMAZING to!!! ;-P ;) +The look of the Guns +When you look at someone using Zoom, their Faces look cool +The sunlight was real/yummy ;-D +... ;) And that's only me playing it twice!!! ;-D I'll play it more later;)
I died twice.
Best time was the first time i play kinda weird .. chanced the controls to alternate 2 and check HOLD ZOOM.. (now its like COD4) any ways best was the first time i play finish it in 10m35Secs and died 1time .... i love the game i must agree for some one that plays COD4 and 5 all the time take some time to get the hang of things but after that BANG BANG take it!!!! lol ...love the game and if oficial i just got KILLZONEDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Post what you thought into the story - it could generate some more discussion. I can't wait for the game!
All you had to do was stay behind something and shoot while behind cover if you had alot of enemies?
I was outsmarted in the warehouse ¬______¬ (i guess thats more of a compliment about the games Ai than anything)
I really don't think you can properly judge a game based on a 10 min demo. What makes a game great is the the story, and the moments that make you go "Awe" with your eyes glazed over with joy and excitement.
But alot of people do judge a game from a demo. :P lol
I know, but I'm saying if you truly want to judge a game you're going to have to play the whole thing.
i almost never pay attention to story. i'm one of those gamers that likes to skip every single cut scene and just blast away.
You talking about Porn? ;)
I'm mainly talking about when people compare this demo to other full games. it's just not possible to do fairly.
Every Bit of it was great, not much to say but WOW, i am going to be getting this on release, and was super excited to play the demo, i played thru it 2x, i wish i coulda played just a smidge of Multiplayer but thats ok, something to dream about for a few weeks, this is going to be one of the best games of 2009, easily in the running for GOTY... Anyone who has not thouhgt about buying this game, reconsider, if you dont have a PS3, now is a good time to buy one, with Killzone 2 and other great PS games coming this year, it is time to spend the money on a system that is well worth the money... I am going to be buying me another PS3 so me and my brother can play this game together it is THAT GOOD... Everyone enjoy their demo!
I actually felt the same way, I didn't get the Wow part yet...but it was really awesome to play. I think we'll be wowed when we see stuff we haven't seen before because we've seen this level a million times before. I can't wait to get my hands on the whole game.
but you cant really say its the best game ever because everyone has a different best game.
Everyone should experience this game no matter what. If you don't have a PS3 than go to your friends house who has one. Or do whatever to play this game. This one should not be missed by any gamer unless you really really hate FPS games.
And you also can't say the best game based on a demo of 10 minutes, I am happy , but i allready played the beta , so i kew what to expect. I got Killzowned!!!
Played the dmeo now 3 times. Graphics are AMAZING! Anyways the gameplay in COD4 is better. But sure its a must buy:)
When the Demo Ended Sorry but i wanted More Must say it was Awsome And the Sound of the Guns,Explosions, Ect are still ringing in my Ears Phew Need a while to compose
One complain...too short.
That AI is BRUTAL!
i died in that game twice and always keep gettin naded by them
"You start with a zoom-capable rifle, and there is a rocket launcher and machine gun in the demo." And if you're uber like me, you shot down the guy on the rooftop in the warehouse, make him fall down, and voilá, you got youself a M14!!! It takes off the enemy its head =O!!!
This game looks AAMZInSINNIG
Graphics are just amazing!! But controls...I can't find suitable layout for me. Also, demo is way too short. One of the shortest I have played. Got me about 10 min to play it through. People should be able decide whether they going to buy it or not by the demo... This was actually little disappointment.
If you could just press instead of hold L2 to kneel in Alt 2 that layout would be perfect for me.
It's not quite long enough really(though I understand if the levels are so expansive in terms of download size why it's so short)to get any inkling of the scale or grimy beauty of the game. After having a few hours on the MP beta I was a little worried that showing so little of the game and what it's capable of in the demo would be doing KZ2 a disservice but it was still great to get back on the controls after CoD and R2 (not that I don't love both MW and Resistance cos I do)because of the weight of the guns and the way that it just feels slightly different(can't put my finger on it maybe it's the slightly more practical and pragmatic nature of the gameplay-not floaty like COD and you aren't a near superhuman like R2 or Gears2 but just a grunt and made to feel it but IDK). Still a good taste before we get fully to grips with it again-it's an incredible looking thing tbh and you do get a little more time in SP to notice the details and the AI which looks pretty sharp in the SP too. Just want more really!
While trying to attach to some cover that was up a little slope my gun started to give some weird recoil effect when I wasn't shooting. I tried to aim my gun during that period and just about puked. I depleted my ammo hoping reloading would fix it a voila. Has anyone else had this happen?
it does that when you are out of ammo and you try to pop out of cover.
I don't think its meant to be there because my gun was giving a recoil effect without shooting.
Absolutely stunning. I love it. The controls seem to suck at first but after you play a couple times they seem to be a perfect fit. I loved it.
