Check out the never-before-seen, explosive conclusion of the press-only Killzone 2 demo from E3.
Why Sony didn't include the exploding tower and hinted at, ensuing attack (from a certain flying vehicle that ended the E3 05 demo) in the 2007 trailer I don't know!
In any case, I hope for the final game, a part such as this isn't as easy as just blowing this thing up--I want to be under attack while I'm trying to destroy this thing. Anyway crazy graphics, no-one can deny that.
edit: Why, why disagree with a rational question like this??
there so many stupid ppl that dissagree for no reason. they should been banned
is this kill-shown 1 ???
is this the game they said it has far better graphic than halo 3 or gears of war..Shony sanboys get owned again by "Shony promise and do not deliver " keep titling your SIXAXIS controller and keep saying oh it is just pre pre pre alpha.the game has no innovation , the A.I super crap .the only think it had is the above amazing graphic and it gone.what the point of having great graphic only in half level of the game,still not sure the E3 presentation was in-game because of Shony reputation in this matter .Plus there is no"last-gen" rumble .i do not see any Shony Sanboys making comparison today, they all been nice ..i wounder why ?
after all it seems 1up were right.
the same storey happened with motorstorm pre pre pre pre alpha and the final game ,all the mud and effects gone down the toilet .
now give me as many disagrees as you want.i think this one going to set new record in N4G
pre pre pre RESPECTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
Pre Pre EDIT:why the hell the guy below got disagree.maybe he did not give accurate figure,should said 95% Shony + 2%$ +1 neutral which is me +remaining is others, but he still do not deserve disagree.
credit to tudors - 15 for the pictures
of course this site is 60% pro Sony 40% pro Ms. Anyway I do agree is not even close to the CG, but they still have plenty of time, maybe someday...lol
i compared cut scene to cut scene BECUSE one of them FPS AND THE OTHER TPS SO YOU CANNOT COMPARE IN GAME FOOTAGE .in-game: the main charcters will have more detailes in TPS while in FPS the environment will look overall better
Cute of you all to use such a flattering pic of killzone...
here is your comparison again
it handles like an arcade shooter too.
yea from what i have seen so far the game dosent look that hard. I want it to be hard with mad A.I. and you really have to duck and cover a lot to make it out alive. So far it just looks like the guy is running around out in the open and shootin ppl however he pleases. I mean the bad guys hardly fight back. Am sure it will be more difficult in the final game but the game rocks. I can't believe ppl are still buggin out over this game. I can't believe I AM still buggin out over this game. I think its the blood the way the ppl still bleed when they hit the floor. Don't think i have seen that in any other game. Love the way it smears too. Its been a long time coming but killzone please deliver so we can all enjoy ur goodness
To be fair, all the footage we have seen, the developer is using god mode..
Also, I noticed that while the player character is shooting away at the tower, the action is continuing...There is a point where out of the corner of the screen an approaching Helghast soldier is taken out by off screen AI! I didn't notice this the first time I watched this.
ah, you noticed. THe AI is fairly smart, not just the Enemy AI but your team mate's AI. There are other videos where the main character is taking heave fire but since he is probably in God mode it doesn't appear like he is dying.
I have got to get into the beta when it arrives.
But this looks like its running on a PS2.
Almost no textures.
I guess it will look better once they go beyond the pre-pre-alpha.
**and yes I have watched the HD version**
So this looks like a PS2 game........are you going to continue to sound like an idiot?
i mean look here - http://i113.photobucket.com...
Where the hell did you find that screen.... Bloody hell it looks real and look at that blood!!!!! OMFG haha i cant wait to play this... Any fuker saying this game looks like a ps2 game is just a dumb little xbot.
Btw have a bubble ^
Character models in this game look awesome. This game really surprised the heck out of me. I agree that they still have a lot of work ahead of them. Seeing as it has a 2008 release date I wouldn't worry about it though.
one word to the game: uber awesome!
Every piece of footage of Killzone 2 I see looks incredible.
I wasn't a fan of the first title on the PS2 but the isometric PSP version has kept me into the brand (probably one of the best PSP titles in fact). I'm now looking forward to wasting some Helghast scum in full 3D again!
the game is in a pre Alpha stage as stated and all the textures haven't been applied. Throw in the fact that the player is in godmode during the demonstration for brevity's sake and it can make it look a little pedestrian. The actual end user game AI is going to be brutal to my understanding and the rifle recoil, relentless.
I know this game will be all it's touted to be once completed. SNE, Matthias and the rest of the GG team have staked a chunk of their futures on it, plus it was evident during the e3 presentation.
P.S.- I'd like to know if there will be a jump feature and grenade cooking like in KZ1 included in the PS3 version? I've read nor heard anyhthing on it lately. If anyone knows, give me a shout.
Stop claiming you know anything about engines modeling texturing and ressources on gamecreation if you judge the power of a games Graphics by its colors or textures used.
First time I have seen this gameplay trailer. Graphics are horible.
some of the worst texturing I have seen in a next gen game.
seems that once again sony has tried to fool us with flashy well done trailer. looks nowhere near as good when it's actually being played.
UT, Haze and COD 4 all look better than this
You just have to open your big mouth and claim that Killzone 2 have bad graphics? You are whacked man...
but...Did you actually watch that gameplay vid?
Those were gameplay graphics in the trailer as well... that's why your argument doesn't make sense. Everything after their landing was actual gameplay. And the graphics are just as crisp in this trailer, just needs more work on the textures. If you take time to notice the details though, you'll see how slick the game is. Look at the character's hands in this vid... lots of detail. And the explosions were pretty awesome too.
Game looks shweet but, i mean, seriously guys no hate, i'm getting a PS3 soon and for sure am getting this game, but, the graphics seem significantly less impressive in this demo. Yeah, it's Pre Alpha i know, but i hope they're spending they're time fixing up the graphics a tad more.
Everytime the player went to press the button to open the covers on 'thingy' (mast) you would hear a repeat thunder sound like it was on a timer or somthing; the AI needs vast improvement, agree or disagree there is a lot of scripting going on in this game; it just does not impress me at all.
Halo 3 owns this game, just you wait and see.
Allow me to call you a d*mn newbie. You know nothing (apparently) about this game, or much of any game for that matter, so you sir, don't have the right to comment like you did. The sound is terrible because it seems to be scripted?! Allow me to correct you. The Helghasts are using the weather in their weapons, they're actually powering the cannon (and firing) with the weather, in this case the lightning. GG have said that weather will play a big role in this game.
Concerning the quality of the sound, well. It's really not bad at all. I enjoy the sounds and the immersive atmosphere they're providing through the sound. I think you're throwing negative comments towards this game and state that Halo3 is better just cause you don't have a PS3, and that is my honest opinion.
Guys, this is the same demo, its just that this is the end part, and for whatever reason there seems to be a bit less going on than in other parts of the game.. Hey, the explosion and the flying vehicle at the end looked pretty decent, especially for a game still in a relatively unfinished state. I can't wait to see more of this game!
Just a quick compare.
Gears by a mile!
Nice try, buddy. The screen shot you so cleverly showed is not from the real finished game. That screen shot is taken from when the game was still on development PC's. There is a clear difference between what you showed and what Gears really looks like.
Sorry, this is what the game looks like: Iv'e played it through on all the modes. It does not look as good as Tudors is trying to claim--it looks awesome, but not quite to the level of the pre-release clips. However, I have a feeling that Gears PC, will.
gears was running on PC on that picture.
If the Sony fanboys bothered to take off their Sony supplied goggles they would see the difference for themselves.
if your looking for that go compare unreal with it.
firestorm and Tudors would it be that hard to get an avatar?
Did I say which I thought was best, to the guy who disagreed if I had said Killzone looks better would you change your mind.
But anyway gears clearly looks better.
Everybody agree OR disagree is just irrelevant to the whole. They just want to be retards and f#k ups anyways. No, really. They do.
Actually, some DO have a reason to disagree or agree but those occations are seldom.
not even in alpha stage yet.
alpha stage is where they uphaul ALL the graphics, gameplay, major tweaking, adding animations, textures etc
beta stage - tweaking, fixing bugs, updating graphics, making sure the game runs fine, multiplayer
gold stage - final tweaking, packaging, advertising
and they can achieve all of this in pre pre alpha stage. imagine what we can expect from beta.
Actually, according to Seb Downie, some aspects are already final, many, however are not. He did not go into specifics for exactly what will be improved...
it will be gfxes like textures and animation tweaks. Not so much the gameplay. It's set already I think.
I can aggree a little bit with what a few are saying, this particular video is not upto the standard of earlier one, but im sure (as Phil said), things will be improved still further. Ill just view the conference video to remind me just how good it will be!
Feel free to obtain all the shots you like, I have the game and I know what it looks like in HD, I used screens the same size for killzone and Gears, you clearly chose a distance shot.
Trust me Gears does look that good as any Xbox-360 onwner with HD will tell you.
Excuse me, I beg to differ. I too own the game- the special edition in fact, the one that has the various makings of videos. Some of that behind the scenes, still in development footage looks a bit cleaner than the final game. Your ss comes from one of those early builds.
I'm sorry, the reason the screenshot I used does not look quite as good is because mine comes straight from finished build gameplay, and yours is from still in development. Come on, Marcus's character is even a bit different from the final version. Stop lying!
this game will look better even the dev said they still have to add animation they still got a lot of work to do you just can't admit that any game on the ps3 can achieve gears and better then gears that is sad of you
this game is not going to look better than gears.We know you sony fangirls would love to think it but its not, this game is the only thing you guys have.Please dont do the same thing you guys did with killzone and compare it to every damn game out there.
@ boi yea I said it name another big fps sony's coming out with
(this year not 5 years from now)
*this game is the only thing you guys have*
well maybe pay attention to the games coming out that would help!
anyways yea it doesn't look up to date yet but looks great for an pre-apha its by far from finish so hey lets wait :D
Killzone 2 is already looking more impressive than Gears. You guys just can't give it up can you?! Besides that, UT3 is looking a HELLA lot better than Gears, and guess what... that's PS3 exclusive too ;-p. Just get over it, the PS3 is getting a real gangsta line up while the 360 gets left behind.
Gears does look damn awesome sure.
But how come you compare a released titel with a pre-pre-alpha build.
Most textures are thrown out to get overall impression on graphics and look to determine if the setting works etc.
But lets compare them for sake of comparing.
Killzone 2 (pre-pre-alpha)
+ alltime depth of field,
+ the superp lighting,
+ very good facial animations,
+ destroyable environment,
+ huge amount of decals,
+ generell amount of aktion on screen,
+ for once not overdone but still present motionblur
+ ragdoll + anim blendings
+ awesome design
+ character models
- bit to gray world
- washed textures
- shadowmaps cast by dynamic lights
- few more normals wont hurt
- particles need much more attention (flames exlposions etc.)
Gears on the other hand (released game)
+ insane amount normal maps
+ great lighting
+ superp Design
+ character animations
+ Crisp and awesome textures
- framerate does suffer
- hardly more than 5 guys on screen
- facial expression nearly non exsitance
- small levels
- no destructables
So far i cant see how you can conclude that killzone2 does look worse then gears, its far to early to take washed out textures or funky animation glitches as a negative hence its far from release.
Gears of war is a 3rd person Shooter pointed to Style and Presentation
Its one of the best Graphics i have ever seen (both cgi and realtime)
BUT if killzone manages the erase those flaws everybody is picking on even though its faaar from finished we sure will see a new king on the Table.
The Kings Dead, Long life the King.
p.s. its about games so be a GAMER not a plattform junky.
90% of the killzone basher would prais the game to its limits IF it would also be release on the 360 and most gears basher would lvoe it IF it would come to ps3.
p.p.s All those comments about killzone beeing the only ps3 hope is once more pure bashing. Keep it real guys once the ps3 hits a 399 mark and killzone is out most of you (couse your bound to games) will run out and get the ps3 too. There are more games on the table guys.
MGS4, Lair, Uncharted, Warhawk, Home (as platform), UT3 (mod enabled), Little big planet. Stop the fighting
xbox 360 ROCKS
wii IS PURE FUN
you the man! keep it real man, I get tired of all these sony fans saying this game looks better than gears.
@ Mr.Rybnik do you really think clif is saying that killzone looks better.Look Im going to give killzone props too BUT that does not mean this game is toping every game out there.show me some pictures of killzone 2 toping gears of war please....... I'm waiting .......still waiting :\
My god u people can't accept the true the kill zone is better and is only pre alpha, u guys still think that halo3 is better when kill zone is not yet finish and we still haven't seen the beta, run a long buy an xbox360 so it can turn to a failure like the rest of them.
I swear, fanboys are still hooked on how "awesome" Gears looks? That's the ONLY game they use for a graphical comparison.
360 fanboys (like tudors) need to stop being such hypocrites.
When people say Halo 3 looks no better than Halo 2, you guys get all defensive saying, "Don't worry, the game is still in it's beta stage." I totally understand that. I have no problem with the Halo series, I enjoyed the campaigns. But I just hate all the fanboy BS.
Tell me, why is it ok for you guys to say Killzone 2 has crappy textures, crappy looking fire, etc., but it's not alright for PS3 fanboys to say Halo 3 looks like crap? Get real, and stop being such hypocrites.
Sure, Halo 3 is in its beta stage, but guess what? Killzone 2 is still in it's alpha stage. You understand? Get over it, please.
Thank you firestarter, bubbles 4u.
EDIT: no prob, man.
thx Rybnik, I could use one more bubble. ^__^
EDIT: thx to you Sushifx as well.
i bubble you too, well said.
Very well said
You show em man! I agree 100%. i still dont get why xbox fanboys still use gears though. that game is multiplatform. and its going to looks best and play best on pc. so we all will enjoy it one day.
Wrong again, both you and Tudors seem to be xbox fanboys, at least CliffyB, the actual designer of GeoW is able to give props where they are due.
He thinks that KZ2 looks "hot" That is his own word. In fact he goes further to say that he and Brussee are sort of like Prof. X and Magneto. I.E equals but on different sides, LOL.
It is truly ironic that we are arguing about whose game looks better Brusee's or Cliffy-B's: you see these two designers co-developed their first game, Jazz Jackrabbit! LOLS.
Edit: good luck, dude!
all these games coming out in fall and winter we'll hopefully im applying for my first job and i have an interview today wish me luck
good luck :) now u can get all the great games u want thats coming out for the ps3 lol
Trust me Killzone 2 will look great when the finish product is final and every1 who said its looks rubbish ect will just keep quiet about it well apart from some fanboys who still say the same thing when it really looks great and better the Gears lol
but damn can't wait for this game and crysis is looking sweet too
but in sayin Killzone 2 will look great and better then Gears...in it pre-pre-apha stage its looking that sweet already...
Seriously, if you guys think this is so awesome than you havn't played any games like Gears, COD3, Oblivion, Battlefield2, Graw2, Doom3, Quake 4 etc. OR you are 12 year olds with hardly any sense in what you are seeing.
This looks like slightly improved version of Resistance. Washed out graphics with low rez text on everything. Gun looks straight out of ps2 game. I doubt they can make it better cuz after 2 years and 20mil this is what they can cough up then i feel sorry for you ps3 owners.
And btw chk out fracture video and see what colors are all about.
I like your picture very, very much.
Actually, why don't you check out a Ratchet & Clank or Uncharted or Heavenly Sword vid and see what colors are all about... Don't come here with that ignorant crap. It's called game design and every game is not designed to be a colorful la la land. The colors in the game are PERFECT for the atmosphere they're casting and there has NEVER been better lighting cast for an atmosphere in a game before this. This game is shaping up to be something truly spectacular. Perhaps you're just upset at how much better it's looking graphically than your uber colorful Halo???
This game is awesome . Can't wait for the Beta.
They've been working on this title for ages now, and with a huge budget, did i hear $20m?
So i expected better tbh, much better.
Textures are extremely poor for a game that'll be one of Sonys BIG games.
I blame the architecture of the PS3 for the bad textures, as i have yet to see a PS3 game with decent textures.
Sure Blu-Ray discs can hold 25Gb of data, but if PS3 cant actually read, process and display proper textures on the screen then the extra space Blu-Ray holds is pointless.
They have been working on this for ages?! What are you smoking, it has only been two years. Stop acting like you know what you're talking about cause you don't know $hit.
Unreal tournament 3 coming out in
