A good review and some good footage too.

Leord3217d ago

Yeah, I am not sure if I would have given it such a low score though...

cryymoar3217d ago

this guy's biggest beef is the gameplay and controls, and obviously, judging by the footage, he, or whoever reviewed the game really suck. Maybe they should practice a bit more, THEN give us a review.

thetamer3217d ago

I think the whole idea of pointing out the issues with the controls, as well as showing how difficult it actually is, is important. I think this demonstrates it well. It's hard not to compare to otehr FPSs as there are some excellent ones out there and most people would have those games and draw comparisons, which is all a reviewer does too. How can you rate a game if there is no benchmark? Other games have set the benchmarks so that newer games can surpass them.

Lfmesquite3217d ago

There's a site called teletext, which just gave Killzone 2 it's third 7/10 score, and it's been added to Metacritic.

I don't see this score from IncGamers added on Metacritic. I wish they would add all scores so the game could have a fair Metacritic average.

Lifendz3217d ago

talk about getting someone that's not good at FPS games to do the review. Oh well, just his opinion. You know a game is amazing when AA is a low score.

Excellent video :D I'm still reeling from the groin shot though...

user94220773217d ago

Agreed, I'm certain this game deserves a 9 and above and nothing less.

omodis4203217d ago

You are talking about a .2 difference from his score.

QuackPot3217d ago

@omodis420

an 8.8 not a 9.0

The overwhelming CONSENSUS amongst reviews is the Killzone 2 is .....clearly....a 9+/10 game.

Only a handful....the clear minority....scored it below 9 - and for the most ridiculous reasons.

Majority Rulz folks. Who gives a fck what the small group of biased fanboyz OPINIONS are.

BTW.

I'm predicting Gamespot has finally grown up and will give a 9.3/10

Dorjan3217d ago

Awesome, I'm glad they have made great AI for this game... something that lacks in most games these days!

GameGambits3217d ago

Is there any spoilers in this before I watch it? :O

GameGambits3217d ago

I ended up watching it, and there's a few times I just had to mute it and look away fast, because yes it does attract spoilers to it.

To add to it, this review was mediocre. The journalist really can't just play THIS game for what it IS. He is constantly comparing it to other shooters, and even going so far as to say the train scene near the end of the game is ripped off of Gears of War 1. He mentions the game is just like Rainbow Six Vegas and COD.

I think game reviewers today need to be exposed to the Men in Black memory erase thing. That way we can erase your idiotic brain of other shooters, so you can just rate this game for what it does and doesn't do on its own merit.

Videogame journalists need to have a big meeting and all agree to just stop doing this,"It doesn't have COD on the box, it fails."

The score is great don't get me wrong, but the way the journalist went about it, and the negatives he mentions are just so overlookable it's near mentally handicapped. The biggest gripes he presents is the story doesn't let you learn much more about the Helghast(what's there to learn about them if you have already been to Killzone.com to read up on the games universe), and that the controls are sluggish. The dingle berry probably played with Alternate 2 control scheme, and just kept wishing it was COD.

Reviewers need to evolve already this crap is getting juvenile to say the least.

Exactly my point ! Err..guess i should of read your post before i posted my other comment below :P

Still..i stand by what i said !

I think comparing the game to others is fairly important, really. The review mentions that it doesn't really do anything new; comparing it to other games that it's borrowing from (as can be seen pretty clearly at some points in the video) gives a decent indication as to who's going to like it. It's a quick and easy way of explaining various mechanics, and I think the video's meant as a companion piece to the written one, too.

As for the backstory thing, what you said is mentioned in the review, too - that there is a big, decent backstory, but it's a shame that it's not explored in the game :) I figured the game would have made more of it rather than expecting you'd read the website from top to bottom, but then, it is a highly hyped game...

Anyway! Good review. Looking forward to the game :)
