A SCEE rep has told VG247 this afternoon that the Killzone 2 demo released yesterday is flying off the servers, so to speak.
it needs to come out sooner but they said they market the game everywhere so why not
“I don’t have exact figures and I’ve been told we may not give this out,” the rep added." How ironic....
it sucked all that hyped for nothing. Controls suck, graphics are good but not the best out there, I guess people gave it a 9/10 because they felt sorry for it.
@ pimp614 ok, please answer this... if its not the best looking game out there, name which console exclusive you think looks better. I can understand if you don't like the controls. Its an easy way out to just say " it sucks " and not actually give a reason. i have both systems, i like my 360 more and i must admit i was not quite blown away by the demo as i thought i would be.. but i would not blindly say its not the best looking console game when quite clearly it is. best looking does not always mean best visual graphics either. The animation is just as important ( at least to me personally ). there is no point a game looking real if it does not have real looking movement.. not only does it look very, very good, the animation is on par with the graphics and as a total package that is what pushes it heads above the rest. on a flip note, i don't think gears 2 had the best graphics on the 360 either... but i will just say the game sucks ;-)
whats ur PSN ID pimp614 and how many digits did the code have and where did u dl it. EU or US ?
Took me 4 and a half hours to download 1200mb!
Say 14 characters... two 5 character groups and then a 4 character group. ::wink wink:: Dont tell them i helped you.
the final build will run in 1080i and if you look on the title screen it clearly says 2008 as well as if you stay at the title screen it will show gameplay that looks way cleaner than the one you played
Great game, poor demo. The demo was way to short, and I was more like a tutorial than a demo, but at least I'm 100% sure that I will be getting this game.
for people that have issues with the controls just change them to alternate 2 its way betta feels jus like cod 4
The Reason why he doesnt have an exact figure is because people in the US created a UK account, and there were more demo downloads than there are ps3's LMAO that is why P.S. I LOVE KILLZONE, i enjoy alternative controller 2 scheme, Normal controls I do not like too much
Just wait, US invasion of GB is coming :P
there was a U.S. demo as well. it's called preordering from gamestop. Killzone 2 is also the #1 preordered game from gamestop, so lots of happy U.S. PS3 owners got to play it last night.
which I guess it's alright.. but i think people should give GG killzone2 idenity a try. there's a reason why GG makes the default control scheme the way it's. I think you did the game a disservice by going the Cod4 way. i did the first time play though using the default setting (mainly I havne't played CoD4 much) and I actually able to finished the game at ease, and without dying. so I changed the control to ALT-2 to see if it was any better. I was completely confused by the movement. I got killed three time. I went in gun blazing like CoD4 styles, and didn't even get passed the warehouse.
if the demo was just a tiny bit longer i would of enjoyed it more
i would agree with you but i think the demo is still fantastic. the controller is a little wierd but i will get used to it. Afterall its just a demo (your first experience of killzone 2)
Downside of PS3 games I guess, due to their uncompressed nature a "decent length" demo would run into several gigabytes. I'm happy with what we got, gets you excited for the full game and doesnt infringe on the story or hand out any spoilers.
After I killed all the Helghast I had fun just running around shooting at stuff looking at the effects. This game is incredible. shoot the chair seats and watch feathers fly. Shoot the file cabinets in the office and they will close and open back up and close again when you shoot it, you can see I made my own fun in the demo at the end. Try the Knife, Melee, etc. The Helghast are funny man, I shot a fuel tank and blew myself up and a Helghast came over to me and stood there puzzled shaking his head. In the last room if you can shoot the guy off the roof of the office or use a grenade there is another weapon you can use which is a single shot Helghast Sniper rifle, get it. I also noticed that your squad doesn't always say the say stuff in the demo in each play through. use control scheme Alternate 2 I spent alot of time in the demo trying different things man. I played it about 18 time yesterday.
I used Alternate 2 as well. L1 is for precision aim/Zoom, R1 is for shoot.
Enable "Hold to Zoom"
I started up playing and was already comfortable....guess that because I was in the MP beta and was playing constantly......LMAO!!!! I played the Demo 10 straight times, then exited it just to start it up again to see the cool 3D menu screen again...LOL!!!!! I played like 5hrs worth of the supposed 10 hour campaign by just playing a 10 minute Demo....no lie!!!!
Wot 3D menu screen? hav i missed summin i noticed the menu screen wobbles a little i thought it was a demo glitch
moves from the sixaxis control.
The demo is short so you can be more excited when the real thing comes out in a few weeks away.
understatement of this very young year. That demo had the servers in molasses for twenty hours.
its lucky they never gave us the first chapter,1.2 gb for a very quick demo,man they would have had to send us a dvd.i,ve showed this demo to a few mates who are 360 owners only,i have to say not one bad comment,they were shocked at the graphics,with the ai been there favorite part of the demo
i like it how wen u shoot the wall the bullet holes stay there and just wow im amazed thank god guerilla was prepared for any situation with the controls
Where is everyone??? I knew the Snow was bad, but not World-wide bad!!! ;-D After playing it 1 Billion times;) I found out he has got a Knife to!!! ;) That looked well cool. Fun cutting up stuff to!!!... +I loved Blowing things up after i Killed everyone up!!! Oh...go on then...1 more go... ;-P
Ken they are all in denial or out buying a PS3. When you have pro-360 guys for the last 2 years bashing the PS3 and all of a sudden they are talking about how much they loved the demo... You've got a hit!
I'm not sure i want some of them on PSN tho!!! ;-D I played it a few more times, it's AMAZING it really is!!! ;-P
Man. My wife thought she caught me cheating last night from all the moans of ecstasy coming from downstairs. She pops around the corner as if to say "BUSTED", only to find me playing the demo. I told her "I got the KillZone 2 demo and I..." she interrupts me and says "jizzed in your pants?" Man, I love my wife.
Your wife sounds pretty cool. My wife just tolerates it, but I can't complain. ;)
She is pretty special :)
I was not really blown away by the demo...even graphic wise......perhaps I tapped out graphically a while ago, and just can not recognize better graphics. I would have loved to been able to play the beta for multi-player...cause after playing the demo...the single player does not necessarily make it a first day purchase for me. I must say that the physics are awesome...especially when you kill somebody. I don't like the fact that you can unload a clip in a teammates face and blood splatters...but nothing happens to them...or that you cannot carry two heavy weapons at a time. Like most...I would have loved a longer demo....but I also heard that this is not even one of the better levels....so for those who were blown away already..it will only get better. Ohh, does anybody fine themselves spinning around when ever they try to heal a teammate....tends to happen to me most times then not......I try to do a "run by healing" and find myself spinning.
It's like when one region gets it right the other one doesn't. It's genius to give people that preorder a demo, but really, I guess sony America want a guarantee of purchases, so it works out. Still I'm not going to spoil a thing, No corinth river for me, KZ2 will be owned on feb 27th this year, Though I think this is the demo of the year. ^^ I really cant wait to own this game, My goodness the game will be awesome, Euorpe is in the Bag, lets see what Sony Computer Entertainment America does with marketing, as you'll need to create hype. ^^ Come on Sony, this is the game you dont need to drop the ball on when marketing.
love the game,but when i use my feet i keep dieing? ps do you have a dumber comment than this,how many people are there in the world?,and if you get it right name them!!!!.
I know more people who downloaded it off a EU account than off the US store with the gamestop code. So the number is probably greater than the install base so they aren't gonna release the numbers, that'd probably upset Gamestop. I'm just glad I was able to get mine as soon as it went up.
Why would anyone download it twice?
The control sucks,
Uh, the controls are customizable.
Alternative 2 hold to zoom inverted Y axis and go the game is unbelievable I played the demo 15 times in less than 1 day
they put in "hold to zoom".
I'm using Alt-2 as well but the problem is when you're in cover it is awkward to zoom. I'm going to give the default controls another go tonight. Love the demo, picking up the game on day 1 but I was not as impressed as I thought I was going to be with the visuals.
I agree competely with your analyist of the game - i too was excited due to the HYPE train on N4G and when i actually got to play the game i felt a little let down. You nailed it when you talked about the cover and awkwardness of the zoom. I also feel the actual shooting in COD4 a little more user friendly. KZ2 just feels like the recoil is way to much - like i am not strong enough to hold the gun straight - i found myself doing small controlled bursts just so i can see my tarket and hit it.
cod4 is too easy. killzone aims for realism not noobism
can i make a eu account to get the game, gamespot ran out of pre order codes, help.
yep like I did you'll be amazed
well...i opened an UK account and d/l it...simply awesome, controls were weird at first, but then i went to alternate 2, i was annoyed at the zoom (since you have to press L1 to zoom in, and L1 to zoom out) but now I read some one's comment that there is a setting to "hold to zoom" which then will fix all the minor issues with the controller scheme....but breathtaking game....hats off to guerrilla and sony
I thought my wife preordered the game for me weeks ago, but she apparently didn't. I forgive her. Anyway, I went in to preorder it yesterday to get the code and I got the last one they had. Now that doesn't say much on it's own because I have no idea how many they started with, but I would imagine it's at least 100. And this is the least popular of four GameStops within 10 miles out in a rural area. (Yes, we have a Wal-Mart and four GameStops! They're cropping up like McDonald's out here! xD)
And controls are in the beginning a little strange , but good if you custimize it , the demo is also very nice, two negative points the lenght and it's not running on 1080i , but the final game will. EDIT: @badkolo , Yep , you can make an european account, just google " PSN account Europe or PSN account UK " and try to find an excisting adres from a european country.. that's it.
....for saying this and people will call me a fanboy or whatever but I wasn't really blown away by the demo. There we go, I said it. Its definately a great game, I think I got myself a bit too hyped up for it and so was left feeling a little underwhelmed by the demo. I think the fact the demo was very short didn't help. I will definately be picking this game up as I know for a fact, from being in the MP beta and from seeing videos of MP, this is where I will have the most enjoyment from this game. As a demo goes I thought they maybe could have released a demo that could have shown a bit more and a more interesting scenario.
I will agree with you 100% Hippo. With all the hype I was underwhelmed by it also. Not saying that come Feb 27th, I'm not picking this game up. I did find the Hellghast AI to be really good and very animated. Maybe I'm just picky but I did notice that there was no way pointer. So at the begining I was running around all over the place looking for a way to get to the elevator. Then I found the guy whol helped me get up.
Press right or up on the d pad for weighpoint marker. One of them anyway
You're not the only one. It is a good game but I find it very comparable to CoD4 and personally I think the visuals in Gears 2 are just as much "eye candy" but in a different art style. Still GG does so many things right (character animation, smoke, lighting, particle effects) and more polished than IW and Epic so it deserves the praise it gets. I would not call it the best FPS of all time though but still an amazing game. This is all in MY OPINION so don't lynch me nutters.
its going to be a great game...but it did not separate itself from the pack like people/reviewers would like for us to believe....well at least based on the demo. With the great animations and stuff...it will be interesting to see what kinds of crazy stuff in-house developers will be doing since the foundation has been set.
it will be a popular dl. Especially for those who did not take part in the beta (like myself). I do have to say it is a very nice looking game. I am not to hip on the motion though. You move quite smothly going forward or back but simply turning gives this sense of blur which is rather unrealistic. I have played it several times and each time I am getting used to it (graphically and control wise). I can't attach myself to the story like I was able to do for resistance and gears and halo. Maybe because I didnt care for the first one. If the full game is the same basic story and gameplay as the first then I really dont know what to score it. Graphically i give the demo a 10 but gameplay i would have to say an 8. Immersion...? depends on how the story plays out. I really enjoy a single player campaign for more that just visuals. It has to have a good story that unfolds and makes you want to play deeper. I have high expectations of this game and so far they haven't been met. Yet it is simply a taste. I will be getting it first day and I really hope sony didnt just put a fresh coat of paint on the original. I will reserve my final opinion on the real thing. I hope sony didnt just polish a turd with this game.
set up a eu account like was suggested, almost donwloaded, cant wait oh boy i cant wait.
But of course i've played it like 10 times man.. holy crap its amazing
It is indeed amazing.
and who ever compared it to crysis should hang there head in shame . also we agreed that i should cancel my pre-order. i likened killzone 2 to f.e.a.r. they are very similar. we also both agreed that it had nothing on call of duty 4, and that cod4 was a much better control animation and overall gameplay . thats our honest opinion. oh well , another hyped up ps3 exclusive doesnt live up to the hype. i seriously think that the ps3 fanboys are really doing a disservice to the ps3 with all this hype. it looks and plays like an average shooter. i only got 1 bubble , so who ever replies in a smart arse comment...eat shiiit
I really enjoyed the demo. Graphics were top-notch. Too bad it was a bit short.
I have played the demo several times. this game looks great. the control is not problem for me with Alt2 setting. but hopefully the game will have a "Resistance 2 control" setting. I like COD4 too, but i prefer the Resistance 2's control to the COD4's. I really like to run fast with pressing L2. For me, it's much more comfortable than pressing L3.
Proving? A single download has proved it!
