Cranky Gamers UK - First impression of the Killzone 2 demo.
Is this guy serious?kz2 is an amazing game,but at this point and economic time the only thing thats going to move ps3's is a price drop!just ask M$,their are minor issues that can be easily overlooked and i'm pretty sure that won't be present in the final build.come 2/27 and on kz2 will be the the console's crysis and all shall be compared too!wait and see!
and thats set it out for the whole game for him, even though the FULL game reviews have totally given us the full details of the game yes the multiplayer is excellent yes the graphics are better than the old demo we recieved yes theres more colour further into the game no co-op will not be patched in yes its a system seller maybe if he starts writing better articles he would get review copies like other sites
I don't get the complaint about hitting an invisible wall. I prefer the game makes sure I go the right direction in a game like this. The online part will let you do more. If you can go anywhere in a game you might go the wrong way and how would they handle that? It's like a movie. You can't go a different direction from where the director wants you to go. Killzone 2 isn't a GTA type of game where you run around and do whatever you want.
I think KZ2 will live up to the hype. KZ2 Muti-player is wonderfull, and if they add co-op to the single game, it's going to be even better. Don't get me wrong KZ2 is a wonderfull game, even without the co-op.
I LOVED IT :)
Fair comments for the most part, but I don't understand the "all the enemies are the same" thing that keeps popping up. They're an army in UNIFORM (the clue is in the name!!). In a game such as KILLZONE 2, which is striving for the most realistic realistion of warfare it can achieve, it makes sense for infantry forces to all be similar in design.
...as contrasting uniforms tend to get other brothers in arms shot; but it takes an I.Q. to figure that out. What's next: "why is it 'red' versus 'blue'? Can't they have several corresponding colors?" Yes they can: they're called spys, which have no place on a battlefield.
It's a pretty badly written review of a demo. And to ask at the end of the atricle if a demo would be a system seller- come on. I don't know why people can't accept the fact that there is no co-op in KZ2. Besides co-op is very GAY! The only people I know that constantly co-oping are my gay friends. There must be a lot of gamers that are gays- must be.
Put the fanboy stuff aside a minute. And lets be honest the controls has some serious issues. They seem to have a slight lag to them and they seem a little floaty not near as smooth as most FPS games. And why in heaven would they default the controls to that button layout beats me.
1. The only thing a person has to do is look at your past comments to tell that you don't like the PS3 http://www.n4g.com/up/30121... 2. You can adjust your controls, so WTF are you whining about? 3. The enemy covered in body armor doesn't just fall over in Killzone; which is why it's realistic and not lag. A headshot will either penetrate, killing the enemy instantly or knock off his helmet, which is pretty much what could happen in combat if a person doesn't strap his helmet on; which most battle-hardened people don't: as blasts can lift under the helmet and kill the person wearing the helmet.
Fantastic demo, played through several times already. Controls take a couple of go's to get used to but now its perfect. 'floaty' is not correct, the play has real weight to him and you can feel it, Ive never felt so immersed in a FPS before - cannot wait for 27th Feb. Tip - don't play it expecting COD4 in KZ2 clothing.
cry xboxfanboy cry.. KZ2 is just PERFECT!! game over to microsoft!! FACT!!!
Most of us have played the demo and we already have our own first impressions, whether it be negative or HIV positive.
i will be honest with you, if KZ2 launched a few years ago i would be all over it. The fact is that it is just another FPS in the glut of FPS games, it does NOTHING different. Generic setting, enemies, guns and artstyle not to mention FPS # 456,678,633 this generation. I am sure FPS fans will dig it but I find the gameplay VERY stale and boring, why buy this when RE5 and SF4 are right around the corner. After playing the RE5 demo I really can care less of KZ2. bring me more action games like DMC and NG enough with the SHOOTAN GAEMZ
You really don't make any since. First of all comparing RE5 to KZ2 is stupid. They are two entirely different games. One FPS the other an action game. SF4 is a fighting game. Everyboy has different taste in games. Personly I don't like fighting games so SF4 is out of the question. Every game brings something new just because people don't notice doesn't mean it is not there. You have every right to have your own opinion, but you have to keep in mind that most people that like FPS will NOT agree with you. I personally never played FPS until Resistance (I did play Halo but didn't like it). The think that draws people to Killzone 2 is a beutiful game that delivers great gameplay. The badge system alone gives me reason to play the online part of the game. I will be buying Killzone 2 and renting Resident Evil 5. This is just my opinion. Question did you play the demo? Just wondering
i played the demo and really dont know what the fuss is about. its the same FPS game that I have played since last gen, not that there is anything wrong with that. my problem is that its identical to every other FPS game out there. It can be called "Space Marine 432". There are just waaaay too many and they all get over hyped and are insanely overrated. Graphically, I personally dont like the style. I prefer the more "Clean" look in games like MGS4, RE5, BD, WKC, VC etc. There is zero color in the game and IMO looks ugly regardless of how many polys its pushing.
i am a ps3 fanboy to the max but i gotta agree with Host Samurai i really want ps3 to dominate this generation and the fact that killzone is getting all this money is awesome, butt i still think its overrated, and generic, no special guns or nething,
oh shut up kz2 ownz and you know it, stop denying and enjoy! anyway you still haven't answered how u got your hands on the demo lool, prove me wrong but are u just ps3 haters in disguise, pretending to love ps3 yet put down one of its best games this year??
My own level of personal hype has not been met with the current demo. I like the lighting but the graphics arent impressing me as much now as the first time I ever saw gears in action. Yes I am comparing a game from 06 to this game. Anybody who has ever played gears will say pretty much the same thing. The graphics are nice but just dont have the wow factor to me anymore. I am now expecting uncharted to blow me away with its diverse use of color like the first uncharted. I could give the demo an 8.5 right now but it wouldnt be fair to the final game. Story and gameplay are what I care most and so far this plays like the original with a fresh coat of paint. Some games that isnt so bad (halo 2 to 1, gears 2 to 1) but those games were great in the story and gameplay department to begin with. Even resistance 2 was better than 1 in both story and gameplay. This game just doesnt feel like what the hype is playing it off to be. I am 36 years old and have been playing games from the 2600 to present so personally I know what I am looking for in a game from graphics to story to gameplay. It is a nice visual upgrade from the first (obviously) but so far it isnt winning points in the other departments.
