GOONLINE: "Nearly 6 years ago, there was wind of a certain project that was not only Sony's first foray into the FPS genre but it was rumored to be at last a Halobeater, it could finally take on Halo and be out the same year as Halo 2.
It was known at the time as Project Kin and was in development by Lost Boys Games. Oh how things have changed in 6 years. Project Kin has become Killzone, Lost Boys Games are now known as Gurreilla Games and are now a 1st party studio to Sony's Worldwide Studios compared to when they were part of Game Republic.
Killzone though wasnt the success that everyone had hoped for, at Sony, Gurreilla or the gamers themselves. It got timid reviews giving it 7 - 8/10 with so many bugs and glitches, it was clear that the world wasnt ready for Killzone.
5 months after the release of Killzone on the PlayStation 2, Gurreilla teased fans of the series with a teaser trailer showing the next chapter in the series for PLAYSTATION 3, in "real time". However, it turned out that it was just a render trailer and now, most gamers would be skeptical when they see a real time trailer of the game now compared to the E3 2005 trailer.
Now, 6 years after we heard of Project Kin, nearly 5 years since Killzone on the PlayStation 2 and nearly 4 years after that infamous trailer at E3 2005, Killzone 2 is finally here. The talk can stop and the hype can stop.
The question however is Killzone 2 the game which was hyped to be?
In 3 simple words…
Hell. F**king. Yeah.
