Edit - re: below: Wait until you see the pause and pan around the minigun boss. Coooool. ;)
will finish watching after work
btw this deserves a thread all for itself.
Take as good fun guys, nothing more.
Like I said, take it as good fun, instead the trolls take my bubbles.
OH GOD! that was sooo funny!
and xbot relives the console wars
im happy to see the difference between Halo and Killzone. Killzone 2 is clearly better than Halo 3 in terms of graphic and gameplay.
I laughed out loud at that video. "beLIEve" LMAO
what a shame that we are having halo 3 in the era of photorealism displayed by KZ2.
x360s are still being sold by IDIOTS in america . what a shame?
nice one :D you can even see the graphical difference in the video with smaller resolution and videobitrate :)
that was a pretty funny video. Kinda clever. But that Halo 3 footage wasn't even the beta. That footage was taken from that small documentary released over an year ago. Not even close to the final version but funny nonetheless.
haha that was good...you have to admit MS walked right into that one...the real "museam" commercial has such a huge amount of cheese smothered on it, its inevitable for things like this to be made...
I am taking it as good fun...but to directly above...BOTH games are taken from very early footage...not just Halo 3...thats not a final KZ2 gameplay video vs. old alpha Halo 3 stuff...whatever opinion you have now between these 2 games visually, is what you will have upon release of both...so its pointless in the first place...
In the gameplay vid the AI actually looks good for once! KZ2 looks sweet so far.
yeah it does but I'm tired of both sony and M$ fanboys praising a game that the developer has been putting work in for years, like Halo 3 I'm tired of the hype for Halo 3 as well as Killzone 2 because Killzone 1 was Average. The only reason why Halo 3 get praised, for one it's the last Halo, and the series so far had good reviews.
Doesn't work for me T___T
none of the link work
You'll have better luck going to the original site (see my first post) and clicking on the individual parts in the thumbnail sections.
Firefox doesn't work with these, so use IE or something else.
I cant see picture, just sound
plays fine here, just disappointed its the same levels again.. all gaming webs posted their hands on with this level, there must be tens of vids of this thing played over and over again. i say lets ignore the goddamn game before the devs can show off another level or environment
a "classic" in the making.
I wish we had more info about it. My only knock on the game is that it looks linear. I hope they open up the levels a bit. If they throw a little sandbox in it then KZ2 for GOTY 08. It's good that killzone sucked now the dev have been pushed to make 2 way better.
will we know anything about it in TGS?
Possibly...depends on how Sony handling TGS to begin with...
The Japanese don't care about KZ2 or halo 3...as a market the FPS genre has little impact there...
however with the demise of E3 as a public gathering, Sony may use the time this week to show off more of the game just to the worldwide public...a move that wouldn't be bad if you ask me...halo 3 is about a week away...and unless that crazy rumor of a KZ2 demo or something around that time, they really need to push something along the lines of "we have a big Sci-fi game coming too"...
It is very unlike Sony to sit back and watch with competition as big as this...We all know what Sony did at E3 in regards to Halo 3...and for about a month, it was extremely effective...
killzone is looking amazing. cant wait to get that game.
Killzone 2's graphics aren't as great as you sony fanboys like to hype them. I haven't been impressed yet by this games graphics.
gtfo. noone wants you here.
Bluebrad is an infamous Gamespot 360 fanboy.Anything he says should be deleted and never repeated. Go to the 360 page, the jig is up fanboy!
PS BB I was there when you made an ass of yourself, when you thought the 360 out sold the PS2!lol
I love the ignore feature on this site. I don't have to see the idiot ramblings of some people.
Killzone 2 looking better and better.
Made me laugh. Nice
this looks really good, cant wait for it to be released, hope though they fix the freezing when the game is saving and loading the part of the level
What? Man, Killzone 2 will be streamed, no loading times whatsoever, now you are surprised that it freezes a little bit when saving? I'd rather freeze a second or two while saving than waiting 2 minutes for the game to load initially, plus, on a interview with a dev (I think it was the BBC one), the dev said that the streaming isn't properly placed yet.
This game will never take down Halo 3, no matter how impressive it looks or how well it plays, simply because we (xbox fans) are total pricks, and yes Killzone will be unfortunaly be flamed by everyone including Gamespot, IGN, etc. Sony loses because of childish fanboys.
Funny video Violater
with all due respect, killzone 2's graphics make halo 3 look like total crap, or like a ps2 game.
you might say all but gameplay is what matters. So far, I have'nt seen anything bad with the gameplay.
I feel bad for the developers, they are under so much pressure, especially when you have all those biasedwebsites out there.
without a doubt, if they make this game a decent one, it will be reviewed horribly, if they make it fantastic, it's gonna be rated 8.5 or something like that.
It's the truth, we all know some websites would be pleased to obliterate this game.
Your joking right? Killzone 2 is average at best graphically. You sony pansies are full of bs.
Please go away and play with your gaylo, that is if you dont get the ring of death
Why does this game always get compared to Halo? They have totally different art styles and game play. Wouldn't a better comparison be to Call of Duty 4 or Rainbow 6? Something more realistic then a augmented super soldier with cartoon like enemies and a kinda naked transparent, purpelish, pink lady inside his head.
it will take 10/10 from all reviewers. cause guirella will make it perfect!!! no way sony will make this game slip away.
You guys really need to get a dose of reality, I have seen nothing that really sets this game apart. And don't evenm get me started about the AI. BUt let hope they can pull it off
That's what they said about Lair and Heavenly Sword. Two other supposed AAA titles that went down the drain. I think Killzone 2 looks better than any of themm, but don't get your hopes too high. I think Uncharted will be the big game of the holiday season for PS3 owners.
The effects and art direction are fantastic.
BUT... is it just me or are the textures looking very blurry and washed out? Hopefully, its just due to the low resolution video.
No, Killzone 2 most definately has ps1 quality textures. Flat,muddy, and bland.
because real life is shinny as a glazed ceramic pot. Get off of it. Looks at drakes fortune. There's plenty of texture and color in that game. Killzone isn't even in the beta yet too. Pull your head out. It's apparent you've rammed it far up your arss.
but there wasn't any urgency in the gameplay. It reminded me of shooting fish in a barrel with a shot gun. where's the diversity?
where are the combat puzzles?...
hopefully they're on the way,..
with the huge budget that's being lavished on the game, it doesn't need to end up being dull.
up tho what is being asked for. With that said, the AI wasn't p to next-gen standards yet.
How was the AI in Resistance?
Most said the AI in Resistance was just "ohkay", but my experience with it was the Chimera joining forces and sneaking up on you from behind something. It wasn't F.E.A.R., mind you, but it was pretty dang good.
I would put it on par with GOW's AI probably.
The xbox fanboys are really doing their best to defend their console. If you read the comments all the PS3 guys are saying is that this game looks beautiful. But there is always some 360 fanboy in there stirring it up with stupid comments. It must really be horrible to want a PS3 so much that you cant help getting angry. My advice is that if youre stuck with a 360 and if you dont have enough money to buy a PS3, you can always sell youre 360. Save up some money and buy a PS3 and you will be a free man.
when i click on it the video does not work
had the Media and Gaming Community NOT put Sony under so much pressure during the past two years. I mean, they were working on the RSX chip all the way up until June 2006, a full year after the original specs were announced. It's funny that the director of Killzone 2 wasn't sure if his game was all the great until he showed it to a bunch of Sony execs a few weeks before E3; they were floored.
I cannot wait for Guerrilla to start implementing the high-level lighting effects (that's right, they want to make the game look even better) and putting game code on SPUs 5 and 6. Right now they're only using the PPU and SPUs 1~4.
Not too bad. I mean, I'll pick it up when I get my PS3 in a couple of years or so, when God of War 3 and FFXIII hits, but this wasn't that impressive to me. and what's with the freezing at every checkpoint?
"very intuitive cover system" lol ORLY? Vegas did that last year. boring.
the AI looks pretty horrible. guys just stand around like idiots. some are shooting at walls. some are glitching in and our of cover over and over a gain doing nothing. the graphics looks HORRIBLE up close. all the shaders and normal maps look absolutely blury. no speculiarity on anything. wow, this game was supposed to look at lot better than this. Gears of war destroys the visuals in the game. not to mention the gameplay. and so does Halo 3. gameplay and visuals. don't believe me?
In-game Halo 3:

LOL. I mean, I laugh when you sony dogs say Halo 3 is nothing compared to Killzone lol. just funny. wait until Halo 3 sells 5 million copies day one.
Even though your completely biased, I agree with you. These turds can't resist trying to bring Halo down.
It's funny because it's never gonna happen. Halo is a monster.
I agree. Halo is a monster.
It sells for all the wrong reasons though.
To put it simply, you're all pricks looking to take down Sony. Yes, you have Halo 3. Fifty bucks says it LAGS more than RFOM online. I'm just betting.
Fifty more bucks says the environments aren't anywhere close to even Killzone ONE!
Another HUNDRED bucks says UTIII gets best Multi-player awards ALL OVER...(except the ones voted on by the public)
Halo 3 = The most undeserved hype in the history of ANYTHING!
Here's some not-quite-as-old gameplay captures:
I recommend comparing the two games in motion though, because that's where the difference becomes Very apparent.
i really can't wait to play Halo 3 but you're a brave man if you compare Halo 3's graphics to Killzone 2's
KZ2 is another level man, open your fanboy eyes!
Go to a 360 forum you fanboy troll.
sony dog. what, are you 12?
Gamers like you make me sometimes embarassed to own a Xbox 360 and be part of it's community, you're not even a gamer, you are a kid who needs to grow up.
First, all footage you've seen so far are in pre-pre Alpha.
I'll start with the freezing... actually I won't, read my above post and learn something about programming before you post.
I'll start with graphics, being a long poster at several Xbox forums, I've had many flamewars against Killzone 2, one of them saying that the glow on the Helghast's eyes were just a texture, well see this.
See how the light reflects on the enemy's arm and then reflect back to his helmet? Pretty impressive huh? What about this muzzle flash:
Note the direct, indirect, soft, ambient, harsh, colored and diffused lighting along with proper self, soft, and diffused shadowing.
Diffusion is one of the most impressive and realistic effects you can have applied in-game. This emulates exactly how real light would affect an object. Take a look at this example of diffusion: see how the muzzle flash is affecting the shattering box? The closer to the nozzle the wood fragments are - the brighter the light will be. Note how each individual piece of wood also affects the other fragments with indirect lighting.
Like I said, Halo 3 will indeed pwn Killzone 2 underated ass, but is no where as good as this PS3 title.
Learn before you post.
Remember when the first Halo 3 pre-alpha pics came out and all the 360 fanboys were like "but..but..but its only in pre-alpha.." and now that there are more pre-alpha KZ2 pics out they are saying it looks crap compared to thier new (3rd gen?) game that has just been finished. I guess irony, ignorance and hypocracy is all apart of being a low life fanboy.
hey, i'm just responding to the sony dogs who claim halo 3 looks like an xbox 1 game. get owned and get gone.
god i love this game.
this is one game im glad that journalists are happy about. my fingers and limbs are crossed that this game wont fail to be nothing less than awe inspiring
ok guys, you got me. the disagree caught me out. i really hate this game. it annoys me seeing it, and i do hope it falls short of being awe inspiring. damn you guys are good o.0
i was laughing when the guy got the bullets in the head...died so slowly and painfully(trailer)
Wow violater that vid was hilarious....not really. It was pretty stupid. It wasn't even funny on the smallest level. Sony Defense Force? Thats really sad. It's sad that you all like a video made by a bunch of queers who think they can save their beloved brand name by making fud.
I know you meant it in good fun but some of the turds in this thread can't resist taking shots at Halo. W/e. Pretty funny that the vid claims victory before EITHER has been released. One a full year after the other too. Turds...
sorry but thats ridiculous, the same turds are all over Halo 3 threads spouting how KZ1 was crap so KZ2 will be the same, the ai sucks bla bla bla.
your no better then them when you resort to name calling, do the right thing and just ignore them. dont feed the trolls!
Killzone 2 still has over 6 months worth of development left...and the pauses at the checkpoint are because...they are not using the streaming texture engine yet. The developers said the next build will have streaming texture engine...so there will be no pauses at check points. Look a Rachet and Clank....it use a new resistance based engine that has streaming textures...
Ok, this is where it goes too far.
Killzone 2 without a doubt looks absolutely incredible, i mean the only person that could deny that is a blind fanboy. But when people say it's going to "Kill Halo" i just have to say something.
We have seen no real analysis of how it plays. The only thig i've read about the gameplay is that you shoot a rocket launcher, your arm flies back, and people start shooting at you. All the articles just repeatedly comment on the visuals. While they are fantastic, visuals alone don't make a game. Not in the slightest.
Halo is a proven, well playing franchise. It's going to sell well. It just is. Killzone 2 will do the same due to the hype from the visuals alone. But it won't kill Halo, not by a long shot.
On the other hand though, i'm not a psychic.
as for my AI comment, I wouldn't mind if there were settings for AI for Killzone. Level one can be an easy setting. To a mid level equal to "Dang near impossible" to "Think outside the box"
just let the halo comparision's die, and hope for new KZ information, I think it looks amazing as always, but a little bit of NEW info would be nice...
GG you know you want to spoil us!
seriosuly though why ruin the discussion by bringing up halo? you either stir up the sony fanboys or the xbots and then its a petty flame fest....
Lot's of detail in this game. Pow! Headshot and the helmet flies off. That's my favorite part. This game is gonna be sweet.
Nobody doubts this game looks better than Halo. How it plays is a different story. From early accounts though, even that seems to be pretty solid. 2008 and Killzone couldn't come soon enough.
I'm not completely convinced yet, but it certainly has potential.
I'm just not all that concinced by this footage. I think they should show a level in a daytime setting. I'm sure it'll look much more impressive than this nighttime level which is kinda generic and bland imo.
But I like their approach, which is lots of post-processing fx and enviromental fx, rather than pushing polygons and super sharp textures.
I'm liking the animations a lot, here and there it's still a bit clunky and awkward, but on the whole it's definitely among the most impressive animations I've seen in a game.
One thing I can do without is all the unnecessary HYPE. People are already calling this a classic, GOTY whatever and all they've seen is a portion of a level. Let's just wait and see before we pull out all the fanboy superlatives.
I'm not sure, but I don't think there is any daylight on the helghast planet at all actually
guys really ive seen some hd leaked footage of halo 3 and even i was shocked the game HDR lighting and ps this is towards the single player mod that i saw was mind blowing the amount of physics +hdr was mindnubling halo 3 single players looks better than this kill zone atm but thing may change ull see what i mean when halo comes out peice
I see jealousy amongst the sony boys. You never see the 360 owners talk about Killzone 2 in a Halo thread. It took 4 comments for you jealous sony boys to start talking about Halo 3. That's called RESPECT and FEAR! Halo 3 will pwn all. Killzone 2 will continue the ps3s overhype run with Lair averaging a horrible 54% and Heavenly Sword averaging a decent 81%.
Sony is all talk! The 360 is all action! :)
I go all around these threads (360, PS3, Wii... what can I say, I love all 3 consoles). And the 360 posters trash KZ2 as well. Hell, they try and bring up ANY PS3 game they can just to bash it. Another false statement that some folks say is boxers don't go to PS3 threads and bash PS3 games like PS3 dudes do in 360 threads. Cause you and that other boxer in this thread just prove that statement wrong.
I'm not trying to start nothing bro, I prefer to keep the peace between my gaming bros, but you should be fair.
