GOA : Killzone 2 Review

GOA writes : Back in 2005 at E3; Killzone 2 was shown to the world. This video amazed ever one demonstrating the raised standard with regards to graphics with almost life like visuals. It looked like nothing at the time would top the Playstation 3's capabilities.

Then the truth came out! It was nothing more then a pre-rendered movie. Fans were disappointed and the fan boys were laughing their socks off. Now a few years later and only weeks away from the launch of Killzone 2, I'm happy to say it's time for the fans to stand up and the haters to sit down!! Sony Entertainment along with Guerilla are bringing the game you have all been waiting for; presenting visuals and gameplay that is almost on par with the video shown at E3 back in 2005.

I love Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 and they both scored about 86-87% on average. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (another great First Person Shooter) scored about 93-94%. More or less the same as Killzone 2. Killzone 2 will be great. No doubt about that.

The line-up for the Playstation 3 looks great. Hopefully Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, the new Ratchet & Clank, God of War III and GT 5 will be in the 90-100% too.

I want good games. Don't care about the console. I have a Playstation 3 because of the exclusive titles (I just like them better), Blu-ray, wireless internet, free multiplayer gamning, the ability to (cheap and easy) change the harddrive and the overall quality of the system.

Don't fight. Play games! Buy your console of choice. Enjoy good games. Show me an exclusive game a good as Killzone 2, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, GT5 on a decent quality system (no RROD for me) and I'll buy it. So far the Nintento Wii and the Xbox do not even come close in my opinion.

If you have not played it, you gotta get your hands on it and take it out for a romp. The game is absolutely amazing.

DK_Kithuni_713568d ago

Racthet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is pure fun. Very underrated. It really is a must have for the Playstation 3.

it feels really good shooting and seeing blood spay out. Why? because it has that realistic feel. It makes me feel like my arms are shaking due to recoil. Since it takes skill to home your ironsite/scope to a target, it adds to the andrenalin rush. No game has done all of the above at the same time for me.

i think it is a very solid game with nice graphics (no where near has good as people hyped them up to be)

9/10 in line with other great shooters out

a must buy but not as good as the hype makes u believe

Shane Kim3568d ago

Disagreed. I think it's better then the hype makes us believe.

OhReginald3568d ago

okay dude just stfu. not as good as people hyped them up to be ? can you name a game that looks better then this one? hmmm? let me guess cry-cry-crysis? hell no dude killzone 2 rapes it with a 20 foot street light.

beowolf283568d ago

the game is nice shooter not the second coming

and not so much better then what is out there (sorry i realize that you are fanboy) but that is the truth

i still buying but it not anything we have not seen before

SupaPlaya3568d ago

" still buying but it not anything we have not seen before"
Unless it is a new genre, you can say that to any game out there. And your point is?

If a game has any hype at all you can call it overhyped. How do you measure "hype"? The commercials hasn't even hit yet!

Are people excited about this game? Yes.
Did Gurrilea and Sony claim it is a second coming of Christ? No.

beowolf283568d ago

wow i said it was very solid game and gave it 9/10 (it is a good shooter and very nice graphics although not so much better then cod4 or gears)

and i said i was buying but sony was hyping this game for 3 years
plus everyday in n4g there is like 30 articles about this game

sorry when u show videos that far back yea u are hyping it up

as of now on metacritic it has 93%

so i do not see how i am so far off

SupaPlaya3568d ago (Edited 3568d ago )

I didn't disagree with you, I just think the statement can be applied to basically any game "not as good as the people hyped it up to be". It really depends on who you talk to.

In the context of this review, are you disagreeing with the 9.5 and do you think the reviewer is hyping this game up more than it deserve?

Perhaps you should be more specific as to the people you are referring to that is over hyping the game. May be something like "i don't agree with the statement that it is the best game of all time".

beowolf283568d ago

i agree that the hype label can be applied to alot of games..but i think that because this one is not being lost in the christmas rush it seems to be the only thing people have talked about for the last month

graphics where nice/very nice (although gameplay is more important to me)

the articles was partially about hype from 3 years ago

i have my game paid off and i am ready to go

if this game came out 3 years ago it be a 10 but in that time alot of great shooters have come out with graphics close to it so i think if people read all these reviews they may expect something that they will not get

Shane Kim3568d ago

You're also saying that CoD4 is better than KZ2. First of all, have you played the full version of KZ2? No you haven't. Second, what did CoD gameplay do to "revolutionize" the industry? It's even on the same score as CoD4 in meta.

beowolf283568d ago

i can say the samething to you

you are hyping and loving a game that you have not played the full version of...maybe u will not like it as much as you think you will

plus cod added perks and levels (the thing that kz copied/use)

also u act like i rated this a 5/10

this game is good just not perfect from the graphics and control (which will not change from now to when it comes out)

the graphics are not so much better then what is out there.... 3 years ago yes today no

call of duty 4=94 kz2=93 so let us not act like cod sucks because if that is the case then i guess so does killzone

SupaPlaya3568d ago

"call of duty 4=94 kz2=93 so let us not act like cod sucks because if that is the case then i guess so does killzone "

Where did Shane say COD4 sucks?

these people are serious because they gave Gears 2 a 7.5/10.
But this is really what this game deserves. The LEAST is a 9.
And i dont think they shouldve docked points because of no co op. Just rate it for what it does have. And hello, YOU CAN CHANGE THE CONTROLS. And i agree with the team mates AI.
