KILLZONE was a awsome game and i'm glad it still win awards because Killzone 3 is coming and it's going to be mine blowing.

Oh man, I'm frothing at the mouth just by thinking about it. Cell tech has come so far now. Can't wait to see how they incoporate 2048x2048 size textures and 16x MLAA.

Killzone 3 will be made nothing but eyegasms.

Where did you get those numbers? Different games do different things. The Killzone 2 engine may not be able to squeeze all of that in with all of the insane things that are happening at any given time (volumetric smoke, lens effects, hit reactions, etc, etc). But, if they do, I'll have to keep a box of jizzing tissues next to the TV.

Very nice. Video game scores are often one of the most overlooked, yet absolutely essential elements of any game, especially action-packed games such as Killzone 2. Games are an inherently disconnected experience, something that no amounts of intense battles and gunfire can entirely overcome. What is needed for a truly connected, immersive experience is either a fantastic story or a fantastic soundtrack. And Killzone 2 really did have a fantastic soundtrack. Every time the music starts up, my emotions rise and it turns from a game into something else entirely. And then there's that intro to the game: the excellent voice acting and the more subtle but epic music make the intro really come to life, and I can't help but watch it every time I start the game up.

So yeah, like I said, absolutely essential. And it's nice to see Killzone 2 get recognized for this, as the soundtrack does a first-rate job in both style and purpose.
