Killzone 2: Fact Meets Fiction

In this PS3 feature, IGN analyses new Killzone 2 gameplay video and how the real game stacks up against the original pre-vis.

This is not a picture or video Killzone 2 CG vs Ingame but a full article on the subject matter.

If they used your tip your name will appear after the story is approved.
Edit: lol sorry I guess MK red is too fast. On another note I might just buy a ps3 for this game.

I noticed, anyway it's all good. :)

I can see a difference (the CG is better), but the in-game graphics are still very impressive.

ShiftyLookingCow3656d ago

exactly my words, I really wish we could have that cool motion blur effect when a rocket fires as in 2005 trailer, it will be a nice touch and I will have a hell of lot fun blowing the hell out of Helghast and make them into a bunch of ghosts.

Yea, the rocket blast screenshot was the only one from the 2005 trailer that I liked better though.

In general, the cutscene from 2005 did still look more polished. But the actual gameplay shots from E3 07 was drastically better to me. There's no question that I will be purchasing this game... and the chaotic battlefield in the early parts lead me to believe that the gameplay will be AT LEAST as impressive as Resistance.

The only question to me is whether the gameplay will do anything to be as innovative as the visuals look & further set the game apart. Haze is actually the most innovative looking fps to me right now (as far as gameplay)... but this game is still a MUST HAVE either way to me.

but, i think Timeshift looks to be the most innovative fps.

Bennett's Take:

At the finale of Sony's E3 Press Conference, as the main lights dimmed, replaced by giant red spotlights, I knew it was Killzone time. After two years of bashing Sony about its use of a pre-rendered clip, I was sceptical about whether it could deliver any real gameplay footage that would even come close.

Turns out they did.

I'm not sure why, but the PS3 is capable of the most realistic character faces I've seen on any platform, including the PC. Resistance did them amazingly well, and Killzone 2 does them even better. As I watched a group of troops zooming into the battlefield on their rocket-powered sled, it was simply amazing to see how detailed their faces were. I'd argue that they were even more believable than in the pre-rendered trailer. And this is with a bunch of stuff going on in the background, not just a close up. If there's one platform that's going to traverse the uncanny valley with ease, it appears it's going to be the PS3.

The environments were almost as impressive, although not quite up to what the original trailer led us to believe. Again, I can't help but compare it to Resistance. Long draw distances and a wad of detail, running as smoothly as a hot chainsaw through a tub of butter.
I won't go into the actual gameplay, as I didn't get any hands-on time with the game, but I have to say I walked away from the brief presentation with a major attitude-shift towards the PS3. I've been very sceptical about PS3's performance in the past, but finally I've seen something that suggests the PS3 does have the power its makers claim. Whether or not we'll see this level of graphical detail in other games, and how long it's going to take before they're the norm, is still up for debate.

"I'm not sure why, but the PS3 is capable of the most realistic character faces I've seen on any platform, including the PC."

my personal opinion:
I don't know how IGN could say that after seeing Crysis(North Koreans somehow look like sh!t, but remember the tech demo). Half Life 2 sure beat Resistance in range of emotions. And it came out in 2004. But Killzone is shaping up great and I don't give a damn about the hype.

PS-Wii-603656d ago

what stands out for me is not only how detailed the faces are but, how varied and drastically different they are.
As you watch the vid you begin to notice that no 2 characters share any resemblance to each other

I cant wait to see how the game comes along in the development and as well as new pics of other environments, that arent in the dark.
