In the PlayStation 3 exclusive Killzone 2, players take the fight to the red-eyed Helghast, invading their barren home planet of Helghan to try and capture the warmongering leader Emperor Scolar Visari.
Well, I think this is a turning point folks.
Even Kotaku couldn't escape being Killzowned..
A great game is a great game no matter what
i was excited, but now, given that kotaku actually liked the game, its like OMFG KILLZONE 2!!!
well there you have it folks..Gamespot and Kotaku.....agrees..KZ2 >> excellent game....
and i agree with the rest of the reviews. cept the dumbassess at edge and whoever scored it lower than a 9. i got my copy today, only 1 hour into it unfortunately (because i had to go back to work) and i already love the game over all the other FPS's i've played and i played them all. This is by far the best and i haven't even touched multiplayer =O PSN ID: Qbenbee310
Man you guys are surprised at this? I know Kotaku gives SONY hell but they are the original PS3 fanboys also on the blog scene. They where the ones to first hype HOME and actually forced SONy's hand about it along with putting up some of the best previews for the PS3's games. Of course they are going to be excited about this game it give you a reason to be happy owning a PS3 again. I'm sure they are thoroughly impressed graphics wise.... give it some time and you will see the boredom set in watch.... They are not really FPS players if you follow them.
Of course they like it. They like everything PS3. Its the fasct they ADMITTED it thats the amazing thing. They're like a little boy, dipping a little girls pigtails in the ink well because they have a crush. Do you kids still do that?
Wow, just got the game today and I absolute agree with all the positive reviews it has been getting. Based on what I have played so far it is easily the best shooter I have ever played on consoles. Seriously, the multi-player is amazing and the campaign is absolutely outstanding as well. I was a huge fan of COD4, but I must say that the atmosphere, gameplay, and production values of Killzone 2 surpass COD4. It is my new favorite shooter.
^^^@Traveler, I thought the same thing when I played K2 online last night. Call of Duty4 doesnt even compare to this. All I can say is that if CoDMW2 wants to match [email protected], they need to do a lot of work and I mean A LOT! In honesty, I'm so glad I traded my CoD4 for this game, such a rad deal
I guess Mr. Obama's presidential victory did make a change!lol..
killzoned we can believe in.
takes you pretty damn close to the action sometimes, it has a mix of everything, duck and cover, shoot from far and my favorite is going in and unloading on someone at close range. It's kinda strange and feels different than other shooters, but once I got comfortable with the gameplay I found myself shooting people from closer than in other shooters. I put it in hard of course, so I was dying a lot at first.
actually, people are playing this on easy and getting pwned. The AI in this game can get vicious. This is certainly no cake walk.
I'm getting pwned by a boss, I guess.
I'm dying a bit on hard, os yeah, its hard. Some sections you have to repeat a dozen times. Maybe I suck, but it doesnt get frustrating. Theres always a different tactic you can try and you'll make it through. You dont make cos of luck, it will simply take a different approach.
it's safe to say most people are playing it lol... @Hater --------- Don't forget to brush your teeth :P Game On Brother!
I am taking a break. Played from 6PM yesterday to around 4AM this morning and started playing again around 9AM to 5PM. Need to charge my mic and order some food. Oh and take a shower also.
good god thats a lot of gaming man. I wish i was still in college and could still do that lucky bastard!
Kotaku hearts KZ2. Awesome, That is alot of gamin hater I should know i keep the same schedule.
Still makes me laugh he mentioned the load points, rofl. He certainly wouldn't like HL2. Now there's some loading. And that was on a Decent PC.
Tell me about it.
I'm not surprised he brought up the load points but they aren't annoying in the slightest given that they only ever happen when you're moving between fights, there's nothing going on at the time other than you moving through a hallway, so it really doesn't bother me that they exist. When you're in the heat of battle it runs ever so smoothe and those load points don't exist in MP, which is so very important.
It is useless to resist killzone 2
Yeah, it's awesome.
Great review but You know the thing I just can't get over no matter how hard I try? I just can't seem to get over how awesome this mammajamma is.
Who cares what they say??? JUST BUY IT!!! ;-P
Kotaku's review is great. Very informative and fair, and it really mentions some of the greatness of the game. I agree with them, the level designs are absolutley, stunningly impressive. I love the campaign in this game (haven't even touched the multiplayer yet). On a side note, the ridiculous fanboyism going in the comments section over at Kotaku ... just, wow. So many people complaining about the game, calling it "horrible", etc. Even if Kotaku is trying to be objective and fair to all platforms now, it would appear that the majority of their commenters are still very much pro-360, anti-PS3.
And have you surfed Joystiq.com at all. The force is strong there as well.
"Despite its minor shortcomings, Killzone 2 is a must-have for any owner of a PlayStation 3. It shows what the system can do and delivers a multiplayer experience rarely seen on the system. The single-player campaign is short, but enjoyable, and from my time with multiplayer, it's a game I'll be playing for quite a while." This is how I think reviews should be done I cant stand Kotaku but I like the way they review games, NO SCORE just an opinion and a final say in the end. I wish all review were like this it would put Joke sites like Metajoke out of business.
That way fanboys can't brag how 1 game is .01 higher then its cpmpetitor. but thatwould be in a perfect world
Yeah I like the way they do their reviews, even if I don't always share their opinon the way they review a game is better than most. Sometimes I think they could be longer but somehow they manage to stay short yet be quite informative.
but i dont like KZ 2. Bought it feb 27 at 11:20 a.m., played it, liked the action. Later in the afternoon i played some more to my surprise that i dont like the game. I got bored, and i was trying to enjoy it. i dont like it , period. Too bad, i expected to enjoy every second. serves me good for trusting reviwers
MP is where its at. If you still dont like it then well.. *shrug*
A Great review from kotaku... even though they dont give scores with only 2 tiny cons it probably wouldve ben a 10!! cant wait to pick up this game!!!
How bout u freakin add Customizable button control scheme 4 the layout of the control. DAM U GG. I have lots of plp just on my list complaining bout that including me. 1 OF MY BUDDY ONLY HAS 1 ARM HIS LEFT & he disperatly needs that cus not only he needs 2 switch the controls 4 a lefty but move around some buttons 2 make it work 4 him. In conclusion he wont be playing wit me or at all cus its 2 dam hard 4 him. He went back 2 RESISTANCE cus it has that. Way 2 segrate every1 GG. IDIOTS. Also how bout u freaken add in game freinds invite so we can all meet in a room/lobby then go on 2 choose a game so we r all together. I cant believe a thing so important like this is missing but hey it does say in game invites in the back of the box. Thats misleading GG thank u 4 screwing that up. I had such a hard time trying 2 play with my friends. Yes i know u can click on ur friends & go 2 the game their at but what if its full or 10 or so of u r trying 2 get together. Sh*t u need to have 1 enter a game & hope that there is rrom 4 everyone 2 enter & then u might not even b on the same team. GG/SONY what the [email protected]*K ha. How hard is it to add this asap. PLEASE show support & hit agree if u do.
slow pace of the game. i went to play cod4 after and decided that the only game im going to buy is modern warfare 2 now. f*ck game reviews. do i deserve to be crucified to think that cod4 is still the king of online console gaming?
i agreed with you
@ nospin r u sure you own a ps3 never mind killzone2 lol, i'm still playing on it since the 26th feb and it's still awesome, maybe it's just too hard for u eh, i like the hardness of this game it's improving my fps skills as a whole hehe
You know one thing I like about Kotaku is the way in which they review a game, I might not always share the same opinion (which is by no means a negative on their part lol, opinion is just that, personal opinion and differs from person to person) but I do like how they go about reviewing games, especially leaving out a score, scores serve no other purpose than fuelling fanboy wars. EDIT: Just a note, I don't disagree with kotaku on this occasion lol...been loving KZ2!
Ahh...dammit, why must I wait for my brother to ship me my copy of the game! A sad brother I am to not yet be in the killzone, it'll still take 3-5 days after the official release to reach me (;_;).
