i really hope your able to customise your class
that was my only downfall for kz2
Lombax  +   1427d ago
You can customize your class in KZ2.
Perhaps you are referring to weapon customization? They've shown this already.

Or maybe you are talking about character customization? That's one thing I think every online MP game needs, a point system and a store like MGO. That'd be amazing!

None of this is really news... We've all known about this stuff for a while now.

I really hope GG doesn't give us too much info though cause they kinda spoiled Killzone 2 by showing too much footage before release.
Narutone66  +   1427d ago
Uh.. I hope
the biased journalists are not going to deduct a point from the rating because of too much varieties.
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1427d ago
The development is almost over. 3 to 4 months is the time left to finish the development or the game.

After that, the game goes to Gold stage, which is something like weeks or a month before the release date in February.

More variety is always a good thing. Unless you are Castlevania or Ratchet and Clank, in that case variety is somehow bad.
It sounds like they are really improving Killzone 3 in various ways. It should be great.

More variety?
They better be careful. Some reviewers don't like that.
mrv321  +   1427d ago
Some say there's too much.

Others say it's too original.
kyrosheel1  +   1427d ago
lol remember the ratchet and clank crack in time review. complete BS if you ask me. How can too much variety be a bad thing in gaming today? Games LACK variety these days. Still, this is a good look for Killzone if you ask me. BRING THE HEAT GG.

Agreed. 2009 had the most "b*llshit" of reviews the moment MW2 was awarded prestige scores across the board. It got an unbelivable 94 on metacritic. Looking at the reviews, you can immediately deterimine the game had a "Chance card, Community card and Get out of Jail Free Card" simply because they knew it was from IW.

Short-gameplay, less then stellar graphics and the online gameplay being broken. You can tell IW really didn't put their heart in this game (after the fiasco by Activision), but this shows how sad reviews are nowadays. Put another game title on top of MW2 and I can guarantee it would get a 7.. AT BEST.

GameTrailers review of Uncharted 2
- Completely Unoriginal/Does not innovate (docks points)
- Says that no game will ever score higher than a 9.4 (or w/e Uncharted 2) got if it is unoriginal like Uncharted 2

MW2 comes out a few weeks later...

GameTrailers review of MW2
- Several inconsistencies in the review
- Gives MW2 a higher scores than Uncharted 2 yet it is no more original than what Uncharted 2 was, and it has a lot more flaws in gameplay... =/

IGN Review of Killzone 2
- Graphics get a 9.5... :/ (MW2 got a 10 in graphics LOL)
- Final score is a 9.4.

Funny how its rated 0.1 lower than Halo 3 and Gears of War 2, when it was being depicted in the gaming media as the "Halo/Gears Kiler", and I don't understand how its rated only a 9.4 when the only flaws they listed in the game were the medic revival gun animation, and the .5 second pause between areas in single player...

If you're going to use a number system to evaluate the quality of a game at least make it some what consistent and relative towards the flaws and quality of the game. I don't understand how some games can get 10s or high 9s when tons of flaws are mentioned in the game...

I stopped trusting number scores a long time ago, but it still annoys me when i see inconsistencies like this.

PS: Here's a random fun fact about GameTrailers

Gears of War 2 is rated higher than every PS3 exclusive, i believe it was rated 9.8 or something, while the highest PS3 exclusive is rated like 9.4 (MGS4, LBP and Uncharted 2). Gears of War 2 was an alrite game but is it better than the three games i mentioned? Nope.

PSS: Don't get me confused as a PS3 fanboy, because i think Killzone 2 is overrated mainly because of the single-players story (the back-story is fantastic thought, just wish they could have incorporated it into Killzone 2). But i also believe that 99% of games these days are overrated. Killzone 2 is still in the top 5 for best FPS games this gen.

yeah, it would be more like crysis meets cod meets doom meets mario bros, some sort of that..
btk  +   1427d ago
Too much variety -1 point
Move - too much options -1 point
If all is perfect some reviews will give it 8/10
redDevil87  +   1427d ago
I hope there a sniper stealth mission
cmrbe  +   1427d ago
That would be so cool
Personally i want the team squad player access back. I rememeber using Rico alot in KZ1 for close door combat and the Girl forgot her name in KZ1 for stealth. Haka for demolition with Jan as balanced.

It wasn't so much about the variety in the environments but rather the constant intensive nature of the warfare that i got a bit too tired from in KZ2. There was never a moment that you weren't in an intense firefight in KZ2.

Also agree with the story part. The story in KZ2 didn't do justice to the great KZ universe story.
bustamove  +   1427d ago
YES! I agree. I love sniping. ^__^
Akagi  +   1427d ago
I hope the update they sniper even more. Or have different snipers.
TheBand1t  +   1427d ago
Well from what I've seen in screenshots, the Marksman has access to an SMG and the StA-14
visualb  +   1427d ago
not only
the sniper rifle scope:
a) is different
b) can be changed.

so a LOT has changed for sniper lovers,. I never got into the sniping in KZ2, I'll admit it, it was too hard =(

Main reason why I disliked Killzone 2. Lets be honest, it had all the cliche's of a war shooter and it had zero variety. I enjoyed Resistance 2 much more than Killzone 2.

It's strange how people talk about KZ being cliche and generic but run out to buy every WW2, American army or space marines vs monsters/alien shooter in a heart beat without ever complianing about lack of variety or shallow story. My opinion, Sony's developers try to hard to please people for a only a little or no appreciation at all. They could load KZ3 with tons of multiplayer, a great storyline, a longer campaign and next gen graphics and you know what they will say? 'It's still not as good as *generic shooter of choice*'. I appreciate their efforts but I realize many people don't. @ StarScream4Ever after seeing male Helgast, I think that female Helgast won't exactly loik like beauty queens, so I think we should leave that one alone

I think KZ3 is going to be a much more refined experience, I know GG had good intentions and let us be honest it was a much better attempt than KZ1 irrespective of the hardware difference. GG try hard and their commitment to patching KZ2 reflects this but it did have it's problems. I am certain KZ3 will be a much better experience, I will eat my hat if it is not.

Great GG but not too much variety or gamespot will mark you down for having too much variety like they did R&C ACIT.

The development is almost over. 3 to 4 months is the time left to finish the development.

I hope they decided to put Coop Online and offline.
