Killzone 2 look-back: sorry, still needs co-op - FPS Gamer

FPSG writes: "The Killzone franchise is five years old today, and Eric Boltjes, Mathijs de Jonge and the rest of Guerrilla Games are accordingly sinking into mattresses of purest purple cotton-candy nostalgia over at the official site. The grimy shooter series has returned to headlines for other reasons of late, with the second iteration swiping a Golden Joystick and no less than three nominations for Spike's Video Game Awards 2009. An appropriate time then to slip off those rose-tinted goggles, strap on some glowing Helghast varieties and do a little retrospective whinging."

Couldn't agree more. There are only two real bosses in KZ2 - the aerial drone thing and Colonel Radek. Compare that to Resistance 2...

dirigiblebill3160d ago

It's not that kind of game. I really, really wish the aerial bits were actually playable though - being able to shoot out arc towers as you're coming into land would have been awesome.

If it wasn't that "kind of game" then why did they put any bosses in at all? :p

Loving the cute Helghast artwork! Imagine those guys eating their nice birthday cake. BLESS! x

kz2 was just fine wout co-op. it would have been better with it, but didn't need it. KZ3 will most probably have co-op though.

Edwin853160d ago

Is that stuff about co-op being too much of a technical problem true, or just dev excuses?

callahan093160d ago

This is an honest question, because I don't know the answer to it (haven't played the game yet) but does Modern Warfare 2 have co-op?

dirigiblebill3160d ago

Yes, it's a standalone mode called "Special Ops".

callahan093160d ago

So not the campaign, then? Is the standalone mode something separate from the campaign like Uncharted 2 & Resistance 2 co-op?

dirigiblebill3160d ago

No, it's not a campaign. Basically, it's a big compilation of mini-challenges like get-from-x-to-y or defend-x-against-y-number-of-e nemies. There are mode-specific enemies and a starred difficulty system. Haven't played enough myself to comment but that should give you a general idea...

callahan093160d ago

Thanks! Bubbles for the informative responses.

dirigiblebill3160d ago

No worries dude :p I haven't said anything you couldn't read elsewhere, tbh!
