Killzone 2: First-person shooter shows off PS3's capabilities

Collegiatetimes: The debate is endless. Video game oligarchies have ignited discussions over the best game console since the first system's inception. After my Sega Genesis broke after two days of ownership, I replaced it with a Super Nintendo at what was then Funcoland and haven't looked back since.

And the dispute has no end in sight. While the contemporary Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 debate is a tad more complicated, it's not hard to find someone who will stick to his guns. I'm assuming we can all agree that the Nintendo Wii offers a unique video game experience that is clearly intended for a different market. The Xbox 360 dominates in game sales with Halo and Gears of War titans, but Sony has made it plain it aspires to have its baby around much longer. The new Call of Duty wasn't that impressive, anyway.

Killzone 2 hits shelves this Friday and the wait has been well worth it. It is proof that a franchise can progress into a visual masterpiece that presents itself as one of the most concrete first-person shooters made thus far. The beta access recently shut down, and Friday can't come soon enough. As its name may imply, note that this is a very mature game, and if you're letting your nine-year-old play it, you might want to reconsider your parental standpoint. Heck, if you purchased a PS3 for your nine-year-old to begin with, you're suspect in the first place.

Killzone 2 shocks and trembles the industry and sets new benchmarks on how video games can look like.

Not surprisingly those same benchmarks will only be challenged by other PS3 exclusives.

Thats why everyone knows the PS3 is singlehandedly the most powerful console to date and no Microsoft PR lies can fool us.

The proof is in the games. The games. Something only the PS3 has an abundance of.

I've seen the graphics and this game could be ported to the Wii any day now.

The Wii's graphics is always improving...have you seen Rockstar's "Carnival Games 2"?....F*cking awesome!

I wanna shoot Helghast with my Wiimote, Nintendo....please get the rights to this game!

Nykamari3584d ago

Please pass that HERB you're smoking, I want some to make my Wii games look equal to my PS3 & XBOX games. That's some POWERFUL SH!T you're smoking.

Skadoosh3584d ago

The game is only averaging a 91%. You guys talk like this game is getting perfect scores everywhere. It's not even close to Halo 3's average. What happen with the Halo Killer????

Microsoft Xbox 3603584d ago

Reviewers had low standards in 2007. Don't forgot the large influence in the ratings with those expensive gift baskets too.

Hububla3584d ago

so you only judge a game by its score at metacritic? ur no gamer! i would personally prefer killzone just because i find ps3 has way less snot nosed little 8 year olds screamin on the mic.. and it being a M rated game i would think that most of the players are at least 16 or over..

Look at this thread. You've got the goofs Skadoosh, JohnnyMann and DemonChild spamming flambait comments all over it and I was banned to the GamerZone for calling POG a fanboy.

So says the lead singer of Twisted Sister....A bunch of gay guys from the 80s....they wear more makeup than my old ass grandma who draws on her eyebrows.

Stay hungry Dsnyder.....Stay hungry...

Sony just won Game of The Year with LittleBigPlanet. I'm sure any age enjoys it.

JohnnyMann4203584d ago

Probably in like.... 3-4 weeks is my prediction.


DemonChild3584d ago

Yes I agree. And it will have better graphics and more DLC. 360 FTW!!

JohnnyMann4203584d ago (Edited 3584d ago )

Someone who knows what they are talking about.

Too bad this didn't come out in time for Nintendo 64.

This game may have beaten Goldeneye....and it is most likely better than frogger....well maybe not the graphics, but the gameplay for sure.
