Blorge: The Kilzone 2 demo, most people's first chance to see what all of the very extensive fuss is about, has been released. Does it sell the game well? Does the game live up to the hype? Is this the game the PS3 has been waiting for?
At around 4pm today, the long-awaited and massively over hyped Killzone 2 demo arrived on the Playstation Network as a 1200Mb download from the Playstation Store. Unfortunately, due to a tacky and bizarre deal with GameStop, Americans who haven't pre-ordered the game are going to have to wait a little longer to sample Killzone 2. Europe FTW!
Killzone 2 could be a system seller, especially if word of mouth reviews are positive and the PS3 gets a price cut in the near future. I'll be buying the game on the strength of the demo but let's not forget that this is still just a first-person shooter and won't appeal to everyone. It's not a perfect game that everyone will want to own but on the strength of the demo, I think the 9 to 9.5 out of 10 reviews have it spot on.
