A 25 minute gameplay video walkthrough of Guerrilla Games' Killzone 2. Enjoy.
Awesome find. It's pretty long but I'll get to watching it all soon. It seems like it is narrated by the developer for the entire length, so hopefully we'll learn some new stuff about the gameplay mechanics.
Wh-Whats that? Halo? Never heard of it before...
*watches video again*
...why you gotta go all fanboy already like that? Well, since you went there, please allow me to retort:
1. Can we call this game Gears of Resistance? What a mashup - gears aesthetic with Resistance pace and size...
2. Another brown game for the brown console - lets compare - PS3: Resistance, Lair, Warhawk, Motorstorm, KZ2 (yeah, Heavenly Sword has a color! Orange!!!). 360: Halo 3, BioShock, Mass Effect - my HDTV displays more than one color? Wow!
3. Listen to the amazing features: Cover (have to admit, I like the looks of the blind fire - props) - GoW did it better, more visceral and fun. Ragdoll physics - nice feature, for 2001. AI - again, nice feature for 2001. Boss fights? Did he say Boss fights? These guys are playing catch up. They are quoting astonishing features that franchises like Halo and Call of Duty nailed 5 years ago. If they get all these right, they'll achieve a standard, run of the mill FPS. Gonna have to get more than that to be anything special (Like, say, 4-player coop online, world class multiplayer, level-editor, saving/sharing screen caps and vids, etc...hmmm I think I know a game that has that stuff already...)
To be fair though, I've always like the art of Killzone, too bad its just so average. If this turns out great, I'll get it - but I'm not holding my breath....
25 minutes of pure glory but i stil want to see some rain on the battlefield =)
screw rain I want to see multi-player footage.
I want to see useable vehicle footage - buggy, tank, aircraft.
screw you guys...I want this game now!!
is it just me or the graphics look better?
fire effects still need some work though.Anyway why am I complaining?still long road to go.
The fire is about the only thing I think looked better in the 2005 footage but other than that this game looks better than the CGI video in 2005.
they could make the fire look like in Snake Eater thats good enough for me since everything else looks amazing!!!
I really want to see how online turns out
I just notice phil just let that guy know( the one playin at the end)
he really suck and that his lucky to be in godmode
Sex to the eyes
gross. Killzone 2 is amazing of course
KZ2 + GT5 ===> PS3 is flexing some serious muscle.
'The competition' (you know who I'm talking about) should be nervous.
starting to watch now.....just saw the title and about had a fanboygasm...
the guy seems to know alot about the game and could be able to answer everything,so i guess this is the reason hes the one playing, but that doesnt necessarely mean that he knows how to play. Remember the E2 07 guy?
did u guys see when he switches the city off and on?WOW!!! just gorgeous
PC superior to ps3?
as i have been trying to explain to you how ps3 works, now pc fans are wondering how ps3 is doing exactly what sony said it could do, and more, too bad, and its 1st year, what a bumber
At the end of your posts if your name is AIZEN SOZUKE?
what a ______ (fill in whatever you want)
"Sama" is a title. And stop hating on the PC and Crysis, seriously, it's getting old.
like every @#%@%#@% videogame in history.
THEY WERE MADE USING PCS. HOW CAN YOU BASH PCS WHEN THEY ARE TOOLS USED TO MAKE VIDEOGAMES?
SAISIEN you are a CHOCH and have made the stupidest comment in all of n4g history. Please retire your account and go away.
AIZEN that jack.
Freakin awesome. But to be honest the game looks allot better when he turned off the filter effects.
Because it's realistic to see color in the dark. What's cool is that when lightning, or your gun creates light, you get to see the detail.
I loved the whole 25 min. It was awesome too see a good shot of all the environments. I can't believe everything was blowing up like that. Things were reacting to the weather. The animations are amazing. Once they stop those little pauses and add effects/more detail, it's going to be insane. It already looks insane.
just finished watching, amazing, the lights getting turned on was incredible, the destructible environtments and the realistic moving powerlines the weather....I could go on and on really
great work GG
now lets us have a demo!
its cool i like killzone 2 but i want better textures buecause some part its ps2 textures, but cool game
man i was just thinking with mg,gt,kz,ff............ m/s needs all the help it can get i hope it does get a lot of ips and exclusive because when these games come out man i say half of the ps2's total sales by the end of next year!
not trying to be a fantard or anything i mean xbox has some great games and some great games coming out; not anything for me because i am not a xbox fan but great games never the less but when these ps games come out i predict pandemonium because it seems like some new and inciting information comes out for each game every day that just makes me want it more and more..........FF13 on the other hand hasn't had any new information to come out at least i haven't heard anything but regardless i am a fan big fan of the series so i will be picking it up.
towards the end you can hear the interview posted by the other website (text).
I have totally noticed all of the new footage of KZ2 looks a little cleaner and lighting is somehow turned up a bit. I think it looks great. I really like how they fixed the end. It is much more smooth and flowing now. I do agree that some textures could look better and the fire effects/ smoke trails would be Way more impactful if they were closer to the target render..Other than that, great job Guerrilla!
show me more MORE MOOORRRE!!!
He works for EA now!:P
rofl tht was a good 1 a bubble for tht
at the start the HDTV displayed 720p. I would like the final product to run at full 1080p and 60fps (if possible) and I'm pretty sure it will because Sony has put in a lot of money and effort in this project to not disappoint the masses and that demonstration was not the final product. Even if it's in 720p I'll still be happy as long as the game lives up to my expectations. I'm confident it will.
EDIT: They should put vids like these on the PSN.
Oh, and BTW, Nice avatar. Sigur Ros is the best.
It's very interesting to watch how this level changes bit by bit.
It would be neat if GG gave us regular - like monthly - demos of this level as they continuously improve it: bring in the fluid streaming and rag doll physics; more realistic flames, rocket trails & explosions; better textures etc.
Still show snippets of other aspects of the game - especially vehicle gameplay - to demo the tech & implementation but let's see how this level evolves over the next year to the final build. It would be very interesting to see - would be like an ongoing Beta.
And once this level is perfected so too will all the others. Then we can be completely surprised when we buy the final version.
That's how I would do it if I were a developer.
God can we please see a different part of the game? And for christsakes i hope this game isn't just at night time
They will probably wait till TGS to show any new levels. Maybe not even then but for sure by the holiday.
They are NOT going to show you too much of their baby people. High budget games like this don't give away much, then there would be no excitement or surprise when playing the single player campaign for the first time when its released.
Personally, I think this is the tip of the ice burg for what this game will end up like. Mouse and keys please GG? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease?
Best looking PS3 game out there and it can go up against the big dogs(i wont name games)because this is all about KZ2 !:)
KillzOwned all my x box games
They should have shown this at E3. I was underwhelmed by the E3 trailer, but im impressed with this. And im impressed after being spoiled by the E3 trailer. It was too fast to see the detail and here it looks amazing at this stage and they aren't even close to being done. They can work on this game for another year I wouldn't care.
they werent that far in development at e3... a month makes a HUGE difference. That is why 5-6 months from now when the game comes out you wont be able to recognize this footage as the same game. The lighting, and especially the textures will be turned up and on. He said they have a lot of work to do with streaming, which I am guessing is textures. The meat is there baby!
Unbelievable. First Person Heaven.
For those whining for more levels, sure we'd all like to see more, but E3 wasn't that long ago and they dont spend all there time readying demos. Remember we went from a 2 year media blackout to what we've seen now in a couple months, so cut them a break. I have full confidence they know what they're doing. M'kay?
Hey guys, I was on B3D forums and found this (what I think is the most convincing CG to Realtime KZ2 comparison. Check this out! (I KNOW that when we all compared Motorstorm pre-renders with in-game we were like uhh, no way, not quite there and of course KZ2 will look nothing like the pre-render but check out these two screens. One from GC the other from E3 2005.
Never before, have I seen something this close...It makes me think that perhaps FF 13 will look like near in-game CG as well.
(Its Post #1099)
The lighting is simly... well... incredible. For a night mission this is the most immersive gameplay i have ever seen. I am guessing they are using this night mission because they have hardly begun to impliment the textures of the game. 5-6 months from now they will blow us away with the final product.
On to gameplay, I love the no HUD. It IS more immersive and it does feel more cinematic. I LOVE the cover system. Its easy, quick, and most importantly effective. It keeps you in the game and acts as though you are actually ducking and blindly shooting. The gameplay may not be all that innovative, but it is meant to bring you into the experience.
It needs to use the basics and use it well, it seems to do that. Let's face it gameplay in a FPS isnt that innovative, what makes games innovative is the different types of weapons you can use... look at bioshock. Great game. however, killzone isnt looking to do what bioshock did. Its looking to draw its user into a real war. the gameplay itself is meant to be immersive. he stated in the video that every bullet has a consequence, this is crucial to gameplay. I hate when I spray 100 bullets and it doesnt do anything... I want to see destruction! I want to see blood on the wall, I want to see pillars crumble when I shoot them. I want to see wood shatter when I spray it with bullets, I want to be a part of my environment. Killzone does this well and this is why its a must have for me.
EDIT: man i lost a bubble... wth?
The reactive deaths, the strategy to kill that mini boss, shooting through pillars to knock out cover, weather effects that react to the environment .... it was just ... awesome.
GT5 is all realtime, so ps3 can go over any cg trailer, since alot of games on ps3 are already cg level, so final fantasy will also surpass that trailer, as it was already realtime, the last report said that they had people looking like real life, so the game will look better than the trailer, and killzone owns graphics of all
i think i figured out why people want textures to go up on killzone 2, they want it to go up so that the cg look will be taken away from it, cause shinney isnt really realistic, it can be, but you cant have realistic and cg, shinney so thats the reason that i believe they want the texures risen, the game looks the best i have seen, and i will pit it against a movie upon completion, but either way, the game will jump even past this point
When the bullets hit metal you can see the area turn red then the heat dissapates. Everything in this game is looking good.
The PS3 is clearly the future of gaming goodness. Thanks Sony.
for noticing that ps3 is THE next generation
When this game comes out the PS3 will be well over a year old! I do think we have some killer games coming and for a system that is only 9months old i am very happy with what i have seen!
nice 25 minutes of future 360 killer.
Holy f*ck. Can you imagine a Final Fantasy game that looks that good? I didn't notice any frame drops and its not coming out for 6 more month! If the AI is good this game is going to be amazing. The only thing I'm somewhat dissapointed with is it doesnt look like you can completely destroy the pillars with gunfire and the environments dont look completely destructable.
do you think the would destoy cg hollywood quality graphics realtime, and make it ugly with fully destructible inviornments, also the game isnt finished, its easy to make enviornments fully destructible, when graphics arent really all that, but when the are true next gen, thats gonna take some time, just like with GT5, so dont complain
I love Gears but Killzone 2 makes it look like a last gen game.
Hey, did anyone notice how the audio cuts out just as he begins to talk about various improvements to the level..I noticed the last thing audible is "a lot more polish needs to get added to these tex.." Good news! texture upres polish confirmed!!
Theres nothing Next Gen about Gears except the graphics and you can thank Epic for putting about 4 years work into the engine for that. Other than that its fun and plays well, but nothing that couldnt be done on a PS2 or even a PSP for that matter. (OOOOOOOO I'm gonna face anger for that. Admit it, its true). They're all talking about HS and Lair and Warhawk and how we WANT to like them. Well I can remember when a 1 year old XB needed a killer app and this game was designated to be it. It didn't really matter if it lived up to the hype or not, its just had to be good enough for everyone to suck it up and its not like there was anything better, (except Rainbow 6 IMO) so Next Gen Killer App it became. Overatted review after overratted review, you know the rest.
I think thats why the "Next gen starts when we say so" remark pisses Bots off so much. Even they know theres a hint of truth in there. Nearly 2 years old now and Xbox doesn't have a real Next Gen game.
That may change, I'm about an hour into Bioshock but at the moment I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. Its very pretty, and very smooth but a little dull so far, but I fully expect it to get better. I am truely hoping it will be Xboxes first Next Gen game. Hope they bring that widescreen patch out soon, it doesn't sound like much but it is kind of annoying and cramps your view up and down.
Whats that bubble thing you desend in called. A Bathysphere or something? Now thats kinda cool.
I think people are quick to forget just how YOUNG this console really is on the world stage. The potential for the PS3 seems unbridaled at this time and Sony's decision to go with the CELL + RSX is absolutely worrisome for competitiors and bliss for owners. I love this machine.
this game does look amazing,i can't believe how goog the graphics look
Halo 3 owns this..........kidding ;)
THIS IS IMPRESSIVE, BLOTCHY DETAILS? CRAPPY EFFECTS? HICCUPS EVERY 2 SECONDS ANS 5 SECOND PAUSES WOW NO THX WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP THE GRAPHICS SUCK NUTS COMPARED TO CRYSIS EVEN BIOSHOCK.
Wow. Just wow
Wow. Just wow
I with you man...
Your eyes must really be dead
Watch the video before you make comments that further validate how much of an idiot you truly are. Those hiccups are because streaming hasn't been implemented yet. The developer confirmed that the hiccups won't be in the retail build.
Bioshock looks better than this game? Stop being a fanboy.
