Thunderbolt: Killzone 2 Single-Player Hands On

"As a blockbuster title, the original Killzone received a hugely mixed reception. Whilst many adored the gritty, hellish, and terrifyingly gothic art style, many others saw it as bland and generic vision of the future. With an abundance of ranging review scores flooding in, Guerrilla will have taken countless notes regarding an improvement to the series. With that said, we sat down with a pre-beta code of the upcoming sequel, unaware of exactly what to expect."

"In true 1080p HD glory" (Killzone 2 runs at 720p)

This comment alone is enough to affirm my belief that the average person cannot tell ANY significant difference between 720p and 1080p. This is why we rely on pixel counters and such. If you're able to change the settings on-the-fly like on a PC there's a difference there. But for films and games where you don't compare them side-by-side you can't tell a difference.

All the people in my family have difficulty distinguishing HD from SD - now that might be because my TV upscales SD quite well and it's quite small for a 1080p set. But still, 1080p is not all it's hyped up to be.

But aside from that, a very positive preview - we all know what it looks like but it seems all the criticisms about AI were unwarranted - the AI is very intelligent and adds to the experience. The hype is building...

Cheers Thor,

I made a mistake there, will alter it accordingly. Glad you enjoyed the preview. :)

Yep you showered it with praise :) I'm so glad because this game could have turned out to be nothing but flashy graphics, but it seems that's not the case. Well written preview.

It really is as good as I said. I enjoyed the first one, but this is a whole new level. I mainly play the 360, so you might be surprised to hear that I couldn't be more excited about the prospect of this title. I just wish I could have another go before it's released!

Real next gen of a videogame experience , and plz don't hate it just play it n you will agree the game is virtually perfect is not perfect just to remind uss that this is in the end just a game the best game but just a game in the end that everyone will love n enjoy n I have to say it thank you sony in special thanks guerrila games ;)
