Joystiq- Hands on with Killzone 2's Single Player Campaign

"Let me be as clear as I can. Killzone 2 is a fantastic game, easily deserving the hype its earned so far. Considering the expectations surrounding Killzone 2, that means quite a lot. From what I've played so far, Killzone 2 delivers on all fronts. The gameplay is incredibly visceral and nuanced; the graphics are unparalleled."

That was a good preview and for the people who were getting on ign's back about thier cons for Killzone. 1up had similar cons as well so I don't think IGN was trying to get hits. I think, like me they want Killzone to be awesome but if there are issues in the game then they should speak up now while there's a chance to fix it.

I would rather people be honest then to have someone preview killzone and say nothing but good things like it's perfect. If previewers don't speak up then GG might not fix the issues that might be in the game.

that was IGN AU, I believe they are the Harshest of the 3 divisions IGN, IGN UK, IGN AU.

Well said, honest reviews are important. But I think people were annoyed that their honesty wasn't being consistent. The fact that some issues were not brought up for other games in this genre when they were getting previewed seems a bit off that's all.

They are being honest - they said they had some gripes at the end there.

BUT!! Did you read what they said about AI?

The enemies of Killzone 2 are just as varied and realistic as the weapons. It's hard to predict what will occur in a gunfight. The Helghast will take cover, throw grenades, and attempt to flank you. But don't be surprised if a more powerful enemy kills a few of his allies just to get a clean shot at you. Some enemies will rush at you with a knife -- an unfortunate proposition if you're not quick to react. There were more than a few times I was caught completely off guard, and enemies appeared behind me. (And no, they didn't randomly spawn there.)

AI haters go crawl back into your cave. That includes you, IGN AU. Hating on the AI has become the last refuge for haters of this game now that they know the graphics and gameplay are both awesome. It's the popular thing to complain about. They have put an extraordinary amount of effort into the AI and this proves it.
