Worthplaying: There was a time when we all laughed at Sony and the PlayStation's supposedly "killer app," Killzone. The original game was a fair but derivative affair, plagued with dumb enemies, so-so graphics and just a whole lot of mediocrity. When it was announced in 2005 that Killzone 2 would eventually make an appearance on the PS3, many around the industry scoffed. Apparently the folks at Sony were a bunch of masochists, just waiting to take it on the chin once more with yet another blah game in a market already saturated with macho-man space marines fighting alien foes.
But Sony's not going to take it on the chin this time, no sir, because Killzone 2 is everything the original was hyped to be and more. PS3 owners can rejoice, for you finally have the game that might make all those Halo- andGears-loving fan boys shut their traps, if only for a moment.
