None of these things, however, spoil Killzone 2 so seriously that you can feel anything less than awe. It's not the best FPS ever, nor is it the sort of game that redefines genres or sets new benchmarks. It is, however, the most convincing demonstration yet of the PS3's sheer grunt, and one of the finest action games of recent years. Don't miss it.
While there's nothing really new about Killzone 2, the phenomenal pacing, stunning polish and overwhelming bombast of the whole experience elevates it to the top tier of FPS games. The PS3 finally has the flagship shooter it deserves.
