How Call of Duty 4 is still better than any other PS3 FPS.
What the hell is P8I? some blog? I agree that COD4 is king, but to act like its light years ahead of everything else is pure BS. If Killzone 2 had COD type of controls it would be king.
i don't agree its king that's honestly all about personal opinion and in my opinion COD4 isn't the king
But there is still a lot to be improved upon.
I don't think that COD4 is king. Like another guy said, it is just your opinion. However articles like this get approved every day. We would be hypocrites to say that this article is so bad all of a sudden just because we disagree with it.
Heh, I didn't even think CoD4 was "king" when it really WAS king back when it came out (TeamFortress 2 and Unreal Tourney III for me, at the time). But I digress. CoD4 is a certain sort of game. It's just as easy to say that Resistance 2 or Killzone 2 are the "kings" of PS3 FPSs for very similar reasons the author listed.
If Killzone 2 had controls like COD, then it wouldn't be Killzone 2, and it wouldn't be as good. Killzone 2's controls are aimed at realism, COD feels very unrealistic after playing KZ.
If you are looking for realism, then maybe KZ2 is your cup of tea and probaly so are simulators (which I think personally in most cases are boring). I just went back to playing CoD4 last night and my memory came back from how good this game was. Personally I prefer fun over realism. Halo 3 is as unrealistic as it gets, but it is darn fun! KZ2 in my opinion doesn't hold a candle to CoD4 other than in the graphics department.
but still imo cod4 is the king this gen halo 3 was good but not as amazing as halo 1 or 2 Halo odst looks really fun,can't wait odst and mw2 cod4>kz2 IW FTW
On Xbox Live, Halo 3 has been King for a long time now...but COD4 had a good run.
I think COD4 is the king of bland generic military shooters for 14 years olds. In other words, I'm about to report this as lame. Cry me a river :)
killzone overall is better than cod4 (overall presentation) Resistance 2 offers more depth in Online than COD4 or KZ2 but.... what brings people to games is the gameplay, and cod4 has some amazing addicting gameplay the fact it was really the only good MP game of 07 for ps3, it got a lot of ppl hooked like me now i cant really play another online game more than cod except for uncharted 2 beta :)
In terms of sales? cause that's the only thing it's king in BF:BC kills it in gameplay
Well it's certainly in the royal family, but king will change based on who you ask.
Killzone 2 for me...Cod 4 was and still is great...but killzone 2 simply takes it with ease imo...people still complain about the controls...whatever...they never bothered me, and now they have that 'precision' option that makes it much closer to CoD 4 anyway...so you have the option for which you prefer... but no multiplayer game this generation can match the intensity in killzone 2 imo...medium sized maps with 24-32 players are just absolute chaos...but in a good way...no cheap grenades, no cheap perks (assuming the server creator did the default removal of rocket launchers)...and they finally nerfed the assault class enough to make it acceptable... no going prone and sniping with an LMG from across the map...no real way to camp at all actually...no lobbing a grenade over a building because you know where the enemy will spawn at the beginning of the match...no where near the connection errors...far superior visuals...and much better community support and features... killzone 2 is easily the multiplayer game of this generation so far imo...but I knows its not as popular as cod 4, and won't be as much as MW2...but whatever...to each their own...i've put tons of hours into both games, and killzone 2 is definitely that one that has me hooked...
Oh please, COD4 just looks like a last gen game compared to Killzone 2. I can't even play anymore twitch shooters like COD4 or Halo or anything after playing Killzone 2. They feel so old fashioned and boring. Killzone 2 raised the bar ridiculously high. It's a shame that it didn't have hundreds of millions of dollars in marketing behind it so it could become the next Halo.
The reason I am asking is because I don't see anyone mentioning just how silly, immature and poorly written it was. This guy, and that is a stretch because he sounds like a kid, is voicing his opinion on what's the best FPS game yet he has never played an Unreal game before UT3. He goes on to say how it's a fast twitch game where he got sniped by rocket launchers? I mean come on! Anyone that has played Unreal knows how silly that statement is. Or how about his "I crawled made my way back to Activision, like Heather will to Paul when she realizes that he has all her false legs." <-- WTF does that poorly written sentence have to do with anything? I hate to use this term but seriously this person, again I don't want to say guy because he sounds like a kid, sounds like a noob to shooters in general. Why are people arguing over this article when it was written by a person that has little to no experience with shooters? He sounds like he just starting gaming this generation. Seriously how does blog articles this low in quality and content get approved? Daniel if you are going to take a serious run at bloging your opinion? At the very least learn to proof read what you have written before posting it. Oh and more content and less stupid jokes. Pick a topic gaming or comedy? IMHO you failed at both with this piece.
when I play online for 360, I go halo 3. When I play online for PS3, I go Killzone 2. CoD4 had a good run, but uhm. No.
usually the "Unknown" webpages like these tend to bash on the ps3?? How the [email protected] does your page get to N4G without getting your name out first and EARN your credibility? , what is it about him that would make him think that i want to hear his opinion?, because i could start my own blog (if you N4g will post it here),and I write some crazy sh!t compare to this trash!!!!
This is completely personal opinion: CoD4: Very high story replay, very easy to connect/play with other people online, and has a very realistic story that actually made me think of certain things in real life KillZone 2: An online simulation to prepare for online, very challenging final level, a big ending climax to lead to a 3rd game (Which I would buy), made use of the Six Axis in ways that made the game more fun Both have a ranking system for online, both have a story I'd play over and over without getting bored, both have their own separate way of displaying how the game is seen (CoD has realistic people and KillZone uses an ingame Engine). They are both winners in my book, its all based on what your looking for in an FPS.
ignore this message. It didn't go where it was intended.
cod4 ftw all though if css was on ps3 i think i might have to say its king
Simple answer...it's multiplat. Annnd, it's crazy addicting and fun. hehe... KZ2 though was very good, just needed some touch ups on multiplayer to make it that much better.
i agree about the controls
If you go to controls in the option menu and switch the controls configuration to 'Alternate 2' they are identical to COD MW. I've been playing it like this since the KZ2 was released. After playing MW for so long, I just find this control setup more natural.
I played CoD4 due to everyone else playing it. It's good and fast paced but not "twitch" fast (although still arcady). Then I got Socom:C, it's more suspenseful and slow paced, but very tactical and sophisticated. Then I got KZ2, it's right in between CoD4 and Socom, perfect pacing with lots of tactics. The only people who couldn't get into KZ are those who want to rambo a match and hope their team wins, or who didn't take the time to check all of the control options available. I actually like KZ2's default controls the best... even more so before they dumbed it down for the kiddies. On top of that, KZ2 and Socom's server support is head and shoulders above CoD4's. No random hosts ending games just as they begin. Rarely any lag, even in the midst of a base raping (possible only in KZ2). More mature gamers and more headsets in KZ2/Socom which really makes it so much more enjoyable. CoD4 may have the numbers, but king it is not... besides MAG is on the way to prove who the real king is.
It is King. I haven't played in over 6 months but I still agree that it is phenominal. KZ2 is not even close. Even with the good particle effects of KZ2, it's still some sh*t. You die way too fast, the controls are not responsive, the dull textures are hidden by a grainy effect and motion blurr, it's not HD, you can't customize your weapons, no perks,
lol "better than any other PS3 FPS" wow...people just want to start a fight.
The good thing is that ps3 owners can play them all!
hahaha....maybe the king of arcade FPS! I admit that it's a great game but king? that's a big NO and BOOO!!
Most rational people can agree that COD4 is more enjoyable than KZ2. All rational people will agree the MP is better. Many rational people will agree the SP is better. O my brothers, I have no reason to defend or attack any game. I've completed both but, put simply, one provided far more enjoyment than the other. As I'm merely re-iterating, COD4 MP is as close to perfect as I've ever experienced. The SP is short but ridiculously sweet. KZ2 craving period = a week. COD4 craving period = a year. How many people are playing each game these days? I wonder if all of the PS3 bratchnys are even playing KZ2 anymore, for they seem to spend the majority of their time controlling 'Agree/Disagree' ratios on N4G.
Why "PS3" FPS? Have they forgotten that COD4 is on PS3 also? We Didn't click the link cause the site does not deserve a hit from us =D
What crap. Killzone 2 and Halo 3 destroy Call of Deja vu 4.
but KZ2 dethroned it 4 months ago. Sure that's just my opinion, but i don't go around creating flamebait threads to push my opinion onto others. Article reported as lame.
What on earth do you mean 'Call of Deja vu 4'? I've never heard that one before. Probably because it's terrible, and completely inaccurate. One of your claims has perhaps an iota of grounding. But KZ2? Come on brother. That game's 'untouchable' honeymoon period ended a long time ago. You just have to look at the player counts.
Not really flamebait. He's just expressing his feelings on why he likes COD4, as a PS3 owner.
You might wanna buckle up before the spin begins.
in the graphics department maybe, and player count also, but thats it. both are good games, and both can co-exist.
Had Killzone 2 come out in 2007 it would have had a bigger impact than Call of Duty 4. I really think being delayed to 2009 when a number of stellar FPS experiences had been released the past 2 years, hurt the impact Killzone 2 made on the genre.
I found kz2 to be very enjoyable in 2009, actually.
truth right here. kz2 boring shooter of the year
because its on PS3 amirite?
and you are the most lame fanboy of the year congratz :)
Anyway, I couldn't care less what some random kid thinks, I feel that Killzone 2 is a much better game in everyway. It contains more players, much better visuals, higher quality audio, and is just more fun all around, in my opinion. Also, as much as I respect the opinion of gamers, this really doesn't qualify as "news" - it's more like a blog, lol. *prepares shield* Yep, when this gets approved, I'll have a swarm of fanboys attacking me since they didn't see "in my opinion" part in my post and will get butt hurt over it, lol. =P
but I agree COD4 is king across both consoles. As a whole package its the best FPS available. And for FPS single player Bioshock is the best. Man that twist in Bioshock is something Ill never forget, totally blew me away and only few game moments hold a candle to it (this generation).
Bioshock is memorable. It has the fantastic narration, the freaky tone and the storyline is superb. CoD4 has excellent gameplay. Just overall (at least on single player) such a balance to everything from variety of gameplay to controls. In my opinion the controls are among the best in FPS. KZ2... well the only thing I remember from it was the graphics. That's it! Nothing memorable about it, controls where supposedly realistic (and I really had no issue with it until I went back and played CoD4 and realized how much further ahead CoD4 was), characters were boring and the story line was lame. The one thing I did like about KZ2, was the six axxis use for the sniping which is somewhat similar to CoD4 hold your breath.... Of course that is my opinion, but if sales has a say CoD4 outsold nearly every FPS out there to a considerably smaller user base on all platforms. That speaks volume!
Maybe COD4 is the most played game om PSN or something and Halo 3 is the most played on XBL. Can it be that simple?
Its way better then killzone2
Killzone 2 is much better game experience than cod 4 and the game tech is light years ahead of it. Cod4 is a great game just not as good as killzone 2. Most people yellin cod4 is king dont have a ps3 to experience the greatness of killzone 2 which is unfortunate.
CoD 4 match making totally blows while KZ 2 match making totally rocks. KZ 2 wins. I can always find the games I want to play in KZ 2. With CoD 4 its totally random.
I has a tits
Now...I'm a CoD4 pro. I mean I get helicopters from straight knifing...deadly sniper...versatile with EVERY gun but I have to say that CoD4 is in no way the best FPS on PS3. Why? Because 1. CoD5 came out...and 2. Killzone 2 came out and 3. It's too noobish. Well, CoD in general is easy to play. I got really interested since CoD3..and CoD4 is basically CoD3 with an actual online set-up and modern weapons. Anyway, bottom line...CoD4 is for newbs...and it's way too easy.
that's pretty kewl, what leagues did you play in?
yeah the game play is what has sold me on killzone2 i like call of duty but the game of killzone is more gritter i like the close combat more.
not real still have it but it lost it s fun factor i play my killzone 2/resistance 2 thanks
I agree. I still don't see why everyone didn't pick up R2. The online is flawless!
then R2 is 'Supreme Leader for Life' and KZ2 will probably be the 'Master of the Universe' or something :p Dualshock support + realistic weight,feel & recoil of weapons + the GRAPHICS!!! + Good postlaunch support - Matyrdom = cod4 got BLOWN away by KZ2 Gunning down people using the ironsights of the M224-A1 on the new BeachHead map never gets old! And have i mention how good the rain effects of BeachHead looks? Easily the best-looking MP map i've ever seen, not mentioning the map layout design is superb!
Played a lot of COD4, KZ2, and R2 online and they are all great and memorable but my king is still Resistance online. Fast paced and fun was what it was all about. In the early days of PS3 it was a saving grace for the system because it actually showed people the PS3's potential. Honorable mention for Call of Duty 2. That game almost convinced me to purchase a 360, until I saw Perfect Dark. haha.
I'm reporting this crap.
I agree that COD4 is way too noobish. There is no recoil in every weapon and you feel like you are using a toy gun in the game. KZ2 is an amazing shooter but I think its multiplayer has less variety than COD4.
KZ 2 32 players in huge maps with the best graphics around now for online play. Not saying that KZ2 is better, but IMO i prefer KZ2. thx
I keep all my games and still have cod4. My son is tearing that game up now I think its one of his favorites. But im usually playing bfbc or Killzone 2 mplayer which is also so much fun.
Killzone 2 is a much cooler experience. Also...Uncharted 2 would gladly take that crown. The Beta alone keeps me up for hours every night.
...and i also didnt know Killzone 2 had a following, LOL. People play that game??? ...that news to me. Good to see you up in bubbles :)
I'm in the Uncharted beta and its pretty fun, but if you're trying to pretend like its amazing or better than Modern Warfare, your dreaming. It can't even compete with the the leet multiplayer games out there. Isn't it Naughty Dogs first multiplayer game and their only second title they've ever made that isn't a kiddie platformer? You can tell.
Killzone 2 is more memorable at least as far as scale goes. @Breakfast: You obviously live under a rock. @AllTimeGreatness: It's good that people have different opinions, otherwise life would be boring kind of like COD4 is now.
wtf is up with all this cod sh!t.The only thing this game is best at is being noob friendly thats it.Servers lag often,those gay a$$ perks juggernaut,martyrdom,last chance on hardcore.Thats just bull sh!t.I can't wait for OFPDR,BBC2,Battelfiled3 come out those games will crap all over MW2 or should i say MW1.5 thats all it will be a 1.5 version of the same old noob fast.
I like kz2 better since I've played cod4 dozens of times, it's gotten old. Also the controls are a little to easy.
I hear you on that. I put some hours into that game but it has been retired to my hall of fame with the likes of Goldeneye, Medal of Honor, Warhawk and Resistance. That's pretty elite company if you ask me.
Is this what ps3 gamers are coming to? The controls are too easy so you hate it. Isn't that the main reason people enjoy games, because the controls don't suck? Congrats to you sir, you fail.
I'm saying they don't feel realistic. More like I can easily pull away from bullets, run back to a safe position then go back for a kill. Congratulations you fail. The irony of this is that COD4 is supposed to be realistic instead of a arcade like shooter. Yeah it's pretty fun but I like a little realism, I expected Killzone 2 to be that arcade shooter but yet the controls are realistic which adds weight to the controls and weapons you carry. Not to mention you get challenges from both.
