Okay guys I just played the demo. I went in expecting so much. Graphically I was satisfied, but I just had so many problems with it.

you said killzone 2 is better than Halo 3 and gears 2 now you say its over hyped

Im fine with the aiming i guess im faster picking it up than others
its not bad at all

Its not final build becasue its in 720P its supposed to be 1080i

OGharryjoysticks3572d ago

what you read was from somebody else. It seems hiphopgamer has his own site where people randomly blog because this is the 2nd or 3rd story to come from that site and it lists the name as somebody else.

BulletToothtony3572d ago

why can't you stick to how you started.. you had come respect back in the day by keeping it real.. now you're just a joke...

Controversial.. yes.. Smart, interesting points??? sadly not anymore..

C_SoL3572d ago (Edited 3572d ago )

the controls are great. It takes awhile getting used to.

BTW. HHG is not saying this, Killa-Indian is saying it.

HHG loved the beta if you don't remember.

i believe the aiming problem was a quip many people had with the first killzone too. as long as when you're looking down the sight, the first shot is perfectly accurate, thats all i care about. can someone confirm this for me? ps3 is at home.. can't play anything until the second week of march when i go home :-(

"what you read was from somebody else. It seems hiphopgamer has his own site where people randomly blog because this is the 2nd or 3rd story to come from that site and it lists the name as somebody else."

And yet it's all sensationalist crap designed to do one thing: Get ad clicks.

I understand what he is saying. The aiming is kinda tough though. In real life you don't turn that fast but you can increase the aim sensitivity if its bad. The thing is all games like COD4, Halo 3 have auto aim to compensate for poor aiming in controllers but in KZ2 there is no auto aim. You have to aim by yourself. Its tough in multiplayer but like every game the more you play the better you will get.

Killing is most CERTAINLY NOT BY LUCK in multiplayer. It just requires skill. You can't just spray continuously and expect accurate shots. You have to use short bursts to up your accuracy. Its still the best FPS demo i have played EVER

long answer:nooooooooooooooooo


edit:sonarus. thats one of the things i like best i feel like i have become almost dependent on auto aim you got to step your game up to be successful.

Dear HHG,

Shut the f*ck up for 5 seconds would you?

Killzone 2 requires *GASP* skill which people might have to practice and get better. Finally a game with a little challenge and no aiming assist

Jesus Christ.

First you claim the superbowl vid
Then you say Killzone better than Halo/Gears
Then you call Uncharted 2 a Gears of War Killer
and on and on

you and your crew are the ones overhyping killzone 2 to the point where it almost has to suck you off to meet expectations

Xbox and Sony fanboys are united in asking you to please leave the internet. Halo and Gears and COD and Killzone are all good games.

The End.

/EDIT "Killzone 2 on track to shatter Gears 2 day one sales?"


March 1st 09 "hey whatup dis HHG im dissapointed KZ2 didnt outsell Gears 2 day 1 dat game waz overhyped yall fo real 1 luv peace"


Tempist3572d ago

Wasn't the realism factor what made COD4 so big... and then the multiplayer? I swear if the guns were accurate standing still, they would gripe about that instead of the wobble that's being discribed.

This rant is utter BS. You cannot have your cake and eat it, and until people realizes this, gaming critiques are not going to evolve or trancend their way out of a wet paper bag.

Blaze9293572d ago

"Hiphopgamershow writes"

yeah...i dont see why anyone continued to read after that point

mugoldeneagle033572d ago

Because he revealed the Killzone 2 Super Bowl Commercial...


Try actually caring about game journalism instead of getting hits on your site.

---SLUG---3572d ago

In what way is any opinion article posted on that guys site considered *news*? Come on people, remember what the N in N4G stands for.

Mr_Miyagi3572d ago

The aiming is a little tough, because it's realistic. Do you relisticaly think any John Doe down the street is going to pick up a gun and get head shots on every kill? Have you ever shot a real gun before? Try picking up an assult riffle and try hitting the circle the size of a head with the actual recoil these guns put out. I've done it and i'll tell yah it aint like COD... It's not hard, just more realistic.

Danja3571d ago

I dont get these ppl when a dev tries to do something different they get butchered , when they stick to they stick to the original format ppl complain about lack of innovation...

the aiming takes a while to get use to but keep playing the demo and by the time the game arrives you should get the hang of it...

Best FPS Demo ever and it was just 15 minutes.....can't imagine how Epic the actual game is.

Eddie201013571d ago

He's just trying to get hits for his site.

SRU96003571d ago (Edited 3571d ago )

Wow, some of you guys need to chill.

One guy expresses his opinion about the demo and you guys act like he just slapped your mother across the face. lol

Your desperation for the PS3 to finally get a "must have" game is making you act like 12 year olds.

Not everyone had multiple orgasms while playing the demo.
Get over it.

Danja3571d ago

Incase you haven't realized 2007 is over..

the whole pulling PS3 doesn't have a must have game is Bullsh!t....

ppl are complaining bcuz this guy is complaining about KZ new approach to aiming instead of having it play like every other shooter out there.

Had KZ2 aiming and control scheme been a total duplicate of COD4 then we would have seen countless articles bashing it for not being different...

SRU96003571d ago

People are complaining because they are way too emotionally invested in their PS3.

ProperFunked3571d ago (Edited 3571d ago )

yeah i totally agree on the aiming, ive said before, its not like COD4 aiming, it feels heavier i guess, less fluid, unlike COD4, however Alt 2 is the closest to the controls, i also perfer the Aim Toggle over holding it down, especially from behind cover cuz you have to hold down L2 while behind cover and then hold down L1 to aim. this may change online however because there is no cover system playing online, and i suppose i understand why now. other then the aiming everything else is top notch.

my worries are the same as the bloggers, when im online taking an hour to line up a shot that would take 1 sec on COD, plus having to plug in a whole clip to take someone down when im used to "Hardcore mode" is going to be an eye opener.

jammy_703571d ago

the demo was the best demo iv played

1 problem for me, you start turning and its starts slowing then speeds up (not like r2 and cod) apart from that this kills both of em..

prunchess3571d ago (Edited 3571d ago )

Downloaded it and played it with the default controls. They are alright but after checking out the control config I found you could choose "ALTERNATE 2" (the x and y axis sensitivity needs to be turned up too) and this gave you the same control set up as COD MW. It felt very natural playing with that config.

I'm going to reserve my judgement on this game until is get to see the multiplayer but so far I'm very very impressed.

KZ2 deserves the hype it's getting.

acedoh3571d ago

some gamers have become so spoiled or lazy they expect the game to do everything for them. I love a challenge and that is what makes Killzone 2 a lot of fun. I wasn't sold on the demo the firs time I tried it but after a couple of tries I really enjoy it. It is very challenging and you have to do a lot of work to get an accurate shot off. I think that is what well sell me on this game...

SprSynJn3571d ago

I have yet to try out the demo, but by what this "hip hop gamer" said about the aiming has me more excited to try it out. I saw in the videos how hard it was to hit your target directly. That is one of the things that has gotten me excited, how realistic it is when you try and hit someone. I myself am a bit tired of playing these Hollywood style games where you shoot over your shoulder and still get a head shot on someone a football field's distance away. Not to mention games like Resistance where, while of course very good in their own right, your gun moves perfectly to the left or right with absolutely no kickback from the weapons. I am hoping Killzone 2 does live up to the promise of a better FPS that I have been searching for.

i feel him tho. im a big fan of kz2, but the controls are pissing me off. i know imma get used to em eventually, but i guess 2 years of call of duty did fuk me up...

Kaneda3571d ago

change button to Alternate 2.. same as COD4..

jBat173572d ago

based on that 10 minute demo, it deserves the hype. until proven otherwise, so will the full game.

now, if only we can be assured that the multiplayer part will be working on day one..

snipermk03572d ago

Isn't this like the 1000000000000th article that has the title "Is killzone 2 being overhyped?" and much so in a retarded way? Play the demo and learn to shoot. Counter Strike has one of the MOST annoying aim and its still played by millions of players for its sheer competitiveness.

Helghast Slayer3571d ago

It's already surpassed the hype. It's just stupid biased American 360 extremists who can't admit defeat or get it through the delusional heads. Killzone2 has silenced the hater and they practically will have no excuses once it sells 2.5-3 million in it's first week.
