I been playing the demo for the pass hour and a half now. I already play through it 5 times, and working on the six. This game is unreal and the wait just got a lot longer for me.

I agree man this 15 minute demo is such a wonderful experience its ridiculous, i cannot wait to try out the full game on the midnight launch.

blackpanther253519d ago

is that each time you play it the enemies do different things

Kleptic3519d ago

visually...there is no console war anymore...there is nothing better looking than this right now...nothing even close...

as soon as you jump off the carrier at the beginning of the demo...and stare at the ground...the dry sand looks completely real...but thats not half of it...

walk around a little, or follow your squad...while still looking at the ground...perfect boot prints that manipulate in the actual texture layer...I thought they were just there already, to make the sand look like that of a beach invasion...but your own character creates them too...its completely crazy to be staring at something so small and insignificant, and look up to see a sky filled with mortars, smoke trails, and explosions for as far as you can see...

...there are over 100 subtle details like this throughout the demo...its absolutely amazing...

Everytime you play it, it gets better, SO SO GOOD.

Chris3993519d ago (Edited 3519d ago )

And I'm not even an FPS fan.

The atmosphere just pulls you in.

I especially like the "weight" of the character and the weapons. There's no "floatiness" that is evident in certain games.

Oh, and LOL at the phantom 'disagrees' lurking in the posts. Guess the Halo Wars demo isn't that exciting, eh? (I wouldn't know, haven't downloaded it yet - be a gamer not a hater.)

boodybandit3519d ago

"The game’s controls handle very well, and I’m afraid sluggish is not the proper term. It’s weight. This is meant to convey a sense of presence and realism to you, the player. Your character is holding a heavy weapon and has armor on. He’s gonna be slow, whether you think it should be that way or not. Guerrilla made a stand for realism in that particular sense especially. Listen to the developer interviews around the internet…you’ll hear them more than once explain in detail about why your character controls the way he does."

It's not bad controls but realistic controls.

TheTwelve3519d ago

People act like the different weights of the weapons are some new feature from GG but this was also the case in the original Killzone. If you carried a knife, you moved faster, but you felt it when you carried a bazooka around.

I can't get enough of the demo but it is way too short. We need at least a single map multiplayer demo.

I will get the game the 25th and will enjoy every moment.

Sev3519d ago

It's totally strange hearing "Sev" being shouted while shooting Helghast.

Totally distracting, seeing as Sev has been my nickname for the past 20 years of my life. We are talking since like 3rd or 4th grade here.

I should have charged Guerrilla Games a fee to use my name.

BTW - Even though I shouldn't have to say it. My name being Sev has nothing to do with Killzone whatsoever.

Blackmoses3519d ago

is the demo available to everyone or just those who pre-ordered from gamestop?

LinuxGuru3519d ago

It's available to those who preordered from Gamestop (US PS Store) and it's available for public download from the UK PS Store.

LinuxGuru3519d ago

EU, UK, get the point ;)

Helghast Slayer3519d ago

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.

Gue13519d ago

but if you play the game on 1080 the horizontal resolution lines go down from 1280 to 900!

joevfx3519d ago

the game is not native 1080i, its native 720p being upconverted to 1080i or p. the Devs already said its best run at 720p

The demo is for everyone, but you have to make an European PSN account, and than you can download it from the European Playstaion Store.

EDIT :@LinuxGuru
it's the European Playsation Store , not the UK ;) or am i wrong?

Kleptic3519d ago

I think Europe and the UK share the same fake account is from an address in London, and I saw the demo up earlier...

didn't need it though, as I had the pre-order code...

just wish it was one section longer...but to anyone that is downloading this now, waiting to play it...its BETTER looking than you are expecting...
