Killzone 2 One Month Later: Killer Exclusive or Flop?

TGS: "It has been one month since the release of Sony's hotly anticipated first-person-shooter Killzone 2. Is the title a true gaming achievement, or a flop that can only brag fan hype?"

TGS re-assess Killzone 2; a winner even in hindsight or overall dissapointment?

When Sony hasn't even announced how much Killzone 2 sold worldwide. All we know is that it passed the million mark and it has a 92% overall review average on Metacritic so either way you look at it, Killzone 2 was a success.

Sales have little to do with a games quality. Look at the millions that have bought Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games or Wii Play. Both of those titles sell like crazy... and neither have any type of bragging rights.

On the other hand, fantastic Titles like Metroid Prime 3 or Zack and Wiki hardly sell at all.

Assessments like this are valuable BECAUSE they disregard sales and look at actual quality and performance.

Actually its a incredible game but since i got the platinum for it after plenty of hours online and off line. I havent played it since. I just want more multiplayer ranks and then id go play it again.

IdleLeeSiuLung3553d ago (Edited 3553d ago )

300k copies sold in it's two first day in the US alone is in a no way a flop!

At best it didn't live up to it's hype or expected sales goal for a game of this caliber, but a flop it is not.

Funny thing, the author states that he does not wish to contribute to petty console wars, but his title is flamebait.

Resistance Killer, probably. Halo killer? You know the answer: NO

dragunrising3553d ago (Edited 3553d ago )

Still a killer game that I try to play as often as I can (haven't unlocked everything yet myself). Despite having fewer ranks than everyone would like it doesn't bother me. Why do we play games? To get trophies, achievements and ranks or because the game is fun? It should be the later. The other stuff is additional. MGS4 doesn't have trophies. Does anyone care? Not really. We play games for fun. Take it beyond that and gaming as a hobby losses its luster.

Despite having fewer ranks than COD 4/5 it is a very functional game. Every class is valuable and important to winning. There are clan matches and such for a reason. The game doesn't end when you get platinum.

Also, Killzone 2 more than likely has sold 1.5 million. Flop? Heck no.

eagle213553d ago

look at GDC. :)

Are 360 fans delusional about games in general?

Why o why3553d ago

COD4 already killed Halo if you need something to be killed. sheesh

joydestroy3553d ago

killer killer killer exclusive. end of story.
i get on every single night and will continue to do so until MW2 comes out.

edgeofblade3553d ago

Why does it have to be one or the other, black or white, 1 or 0? If Killer Exclusive is 10 and Flop is 0, I would give it a 9: Awesome Exclusive. It's not the end-all-be-all FPS since there is no such thing as best when it comes to a genre as endlessly extensible as "first person shooter". But it is nowhere close to "flop" by any means.

It's definitely high on the list... a landmark in many respects, but it still has room to grow.

Its a good game but I guess people still can't buy a 400 dollar PS3 to get it.Same went for R2 and lbp

brycespitler3553d ago

the article stated it was a fantastic game that lived up to hype and is still highly enjoyable

why are you going off topic with kilzone isnt selling well?

the only data that is even available of k2 sales is 2 days of sales in the u.s.

you come across as a tool when you post ignorant stuff like that which has nothing to do with the actual article

the comment section is meant to discuss the article not your random thoughts of the day

you get a wag of my finger colbert...maybe i should send some bears out to your house

GWAVE3553d ago

Sales > everything.

That's why Steven Colbert and me hang out all day long to play The Sims, Pokemon, Wii Fit, and Mario Kart.

II Necroplasm II3553d ago

How could Steven Colbert care about sells? Look at his avatar

TheColbertinator3553d ago

Hahahaha Necroplasm got me.bubbles for ya

In reviews and quality,it did great.A developer who goes from a 70 to a 92 on Metacritic deserves my kudos

II Necroplasm II3553d ago (Edited 3553d ago )

Oh hell yea! Dreamcast is awesome. The only real games I got for mine is RE2 and Ready2Rumble, rest are all games I got burned but they play just as good :)

blackbeld3553d ago

What flop?

PS3 owners have the luxury to buy too many PS3 exclusives..

They not gonna buy all off them in one time.... They spread they're wallet too enjoy each game fully with all trophy's...

Unlike 360 owners only has Gears off nothing and Halo...

ravinshield3553d ago
