IGN writes: "By now, you've probably seen the E3 2005 trailer for Killzone 2, which highlighted an aerial invasion that quickly descended into a brutal warzone between the ISA and Helghast forces in the middle of a city. Bodies were immolated or ripped to pieces by gunfire, explosions destroyed aircraft and jeeps alike, and the chaos of battle was rather apparent. While the arguments online raged over whether or not the trailer was CG or gameplay footage in real time, everyone could agree on one fact: the bar Guerrilla Games had set was extremely high, but if they managed to accomplish that, it would be one of the most visually striking shooters ever made. Hermen Hulst, Managing Director of Guerrilla Games, mentioned during a presentation at their studios that the trailer was "clearly one of the benchmarks that we set for the project – the sheer intensity and chaos of the battlefield." As striking as it was, Guerrilla already has plans to eclipse this trailer with the final release of Killzone 2, which is scheduled to hit shelves in February 2009."
