Review codes have been sent to reviewers.
Wait, huh? So is this the final version?
No, it's the review code. It's the one before final code. Often, it'll still have some bugs but they'll use any feedback to fix in the final version.
That's what im saying, is it normal for the review codes to be out this early. I would of thought they would want to fix a few more things or are they still going to. The pictures look amazing! who's the guy in the 5th pic on the left page on top? EDIT: Thanks Pirate for anwsering my question.
This is it guys. The moment of truth. What review site does he work for?
Magazines usually get review code first since they publish on a monthly schedule, unlike online sites which can publish whenever they want. This review code is often near final, which means that it may contain bugs, such was the case with Lost Odyssey (it had long loading times in the review builds; the loading was still long in the final build, but it wasn't as long).
This is it, the black box that all critics have been waiting for to thrash and trash. Let's see who has the guts first to rip this game apart. I wonder what the embargo date is? Either way, nice Christmas gift for the media. Here's my predictions: Gamespot: 8.0 IGN: 8.8 1up: B- GiantBomb: 3/5 X-Play: 4/5 Gamepro: Fun Factor - 4/5 GameInformer: 8.25 EDGE: 6 GamesRadar: 8 FOR THE RECORD: Next to FFXIII and SO: Last Hope (RPG fan), this is my most anticipated game for 2009.
I agree with you. These reviewers are going to look every inch in the game to look for flaws. I wont even be surprised if they give Killzone 2 graphics score less than a 10 knowing how they are. I could already picture all these sites losing their credibility due to this game. *looks at the MSG4 and GTA4 reviews....*sigh
The code is out quite early, this guys must be pretty sure of the game as it is. Now the real question is if the campaign is up to the same par of the rest of the game.
If thats how the box is gonna look il get 2 so i can have one to just look at lol... damn thats SEXY (as far as not being a girl goes lol) damn that looks GOOD!!!! YEAHHHHHHHHH!!!!! KZ2 YEAH FTW!!!
The four horsemen have mounted for the box's end!
I really hope thats the box cover PSNID: UnSelfHomicide
so sleek and smexy.
I believe the cover art is shown on the last page of the booklet he photographed.
The cover looks so friggin cool
i really cant wait for this game!!!
GRAPHICS BEYOND IMAGINATION GAMEPLAY BEYOND GORGEOUS WAR HAS CHANGED
Your CAPS key is still locked. How bout you 'change' that? Happy Holidays! :)
what you want to tell me, i dont understand it my english is not that good, what means CAPS???
CAPS=Capitals Have a good and safe HOLIDAY bud!
Remember all the nay-sayers spouting their crap about this game... have their tones have changed... KZ2 will OWN 2009! That box looks too flush for the retail copy, but I hope they do something cool for the box art!
I'm sure Guerrilla is already started work on their next game, since this KZ2 has been done for a while.
They have said in many interviews that the last couple of months and till the release date they will be working on the multiplayer, making sure it is balanced, working properly etc.
I'm sure they're gonna be working on DLC like multiplayer packs and stuff. I wonder what their next game will be though, I have a feeling Killzone is gonna be a trilogy
anyone remember when mgs4 review codes came out? it wasnt THIS early..or was it?
There were people who had already played it through and reviewed it two months earlier, just was under an NDA not to release it to a certain date.
:O!!!!!!!!!!! i cant wait :D
the guy says the game is AWESOME... Good thing to hear and something i already know.. cant wait to play the final game.. GG and Sony have really stepped it up with killzone 2..
I can't wait for the game. Bubbles for pointing it out. I didn't see! xD
The world first review is in OPM UK (official playstation magazine UK) which goes on sale 20th January, but subscribers get it a few days earlier so expect the first review scans or at least score to hit the web around 17th January
this is gonna be the longest january... can't wait
Coming out this early can only mean one thing.... every site who wants this game to fail will have enough time to twist, cherry pick, and stress themselves out till they come up with something to cry about.
Merry Christmas ya lucky bast***!
Can't wait to hear the reviews from the hater sites "Greatest game of all time but...I think I saw a bit of screentear. 4.9/10...I would've gave it a 5 but...you know. Flop."
Awesome.Killzone 2 is less than two months away!!
2 months and 2/3 days (timezone permitting). 27th. :)
Oops,my bad!! Still pretty close though.
It's just now hitting me how close it is to coming out, the wait is almost over :)
Actually no :P its exactly after 2 months, 2 days, 1 hour and 27 minutes to go T.T
4 months in Europe. Everything gets delayed in Europe.
i cant wait. though, this game will get nothing but B scores from mostly everyone except ign, and Xplay... the media is gonna give this game an 8 becuase this game is gonna be soo critical. ^^ just wait. Ign will have the first review and it'll be very high, and then the media bias will attack. "KILLZONE 2 Looks brilliant, does some things right but is still another Generic shotter that does little to set itself apart from the rest of the Shooters"... like Cod4, Halo, Gears.. just wait for it. the 360 fanbase will certainly love this, this game will be victimized to no end by bias and fanboy bashing, and reviewers who put there fanboi bias over professionalism. 1up, Edge, and Gametrailers, Gamedaily, Variety, Gamespot, and maybe Eurogamer. Just wait for it.
I agree to some extent. This game has been hyped by media and fans like the second coming of Jesus and reviewers are going to be very critical on this one. But I still think it will get great reviews.
Screw the reviews, I need no convincing. My buddies and I are chomping at the bit for this game and every other FPS (shooter) is just acting as a filler right now. Did you play the beta, that alone would get £40 from me. Screw the reviews, sales, comments from the haters, this is an FPS players dream. As long as I can get a game online in a full server. Nothing else really matters. Private clan chat etc also helps patchs those little niggles I have with the PSN (no private chat). too. I'm sold, and I'm sure the graphics alone will have them queuing up.
bubbles fish you always speak how i feel :)
Didn't GameDaily publish their score "predictions" for 2009? They predicted that they'd give KZ2 an 8. I hope they're not setting targets.
Well let all those 10's start rolling out. Awesome!!!!
almost here with this and street fighter 4 coming out the same month, more money problems...
Wow we're getting so close to launch date. That booklet, was it the manual or just a preview book? Had some awesome photos in it, the sniper at the end :)
Those pics look like they may be something close to the Collectors Edition version of the game. If Guerrilla sent out Killzone 2 like this to reviewers with the nice packaging, then I'm pretty sure that a Collectors Edition will be announced and if it is, that's the version I'm picking up without a doubt.
Please sony dont screw this up with marketing!! I want sony to market this game like there is no tommorow! Im talking HUGE, i want to see Helghast mountain dew and ISA Doritos! I want to see Helghast shaped pizzas at pizza hut, I want to see tons and tons of commercials on every channell! Heck I even want commercials on food tv and Lifetime for this game! MARKET MARKET MAREKT.. ADVERTISE ADVERTISE ADVERTISE! I want to see a countdown to midnight launch shows like they did with Halo 3. a 2 hour special, the 1st hour going into the story line of the first Killzone and the 2nd hour being the countdown to midnight launch I hope sony pays for media attention for this one game like MS does, if they do all that.. I gurantee Killzone 2 will sell 2 million or more in its first week! This game WILL BE HUGE AND I CANT WAIT
but as for advertisement , who cares . sony has never advertise there products in years .
Just before christmas :P
This game is gona blow my socks off it realy will.......anyone agrre??
Now we will see the hate.
KZ2 nicely preordered. No Speacial edition? darkequitus:psn/xbl
Maybe next month they'll announce something.
I posted these already but for those who have not seen them here they are again. http://screenshots.teamxbox...
Yeah the Riddick game looks good, but i think that in motion killzone 2 will have the edge, the amount of thing happening at once on the Killzone 2 trailers is beyond anything i have seen. Graphics could be at the same level but technically i think Killzone 2 has the edge. Just my opinion.
If Im not mistaken I heard riddick was going to get canned
Are you blind? No offense, if you say something that huge at least back it up with some good screenshots.
Getting close. I'M SO EXCITED!
The fanboys will have fun poking and repeating the bad areas of K2 because after all no game is perfect.
the last picture in the book are of Helghast snipers, not ISA
can't wait for the reviews! i am pretty certain that no one will give it lower than a high 8. my guess it will average like 92-94 on metacritic. (like anyone cares though, i along with many of you will be getting this game no matter what, right?). best proof for high scores i have is hearing a certain rather well-known (where i live) reviewer praising it quite a lot, while giving Resistance 2 a 7/10... he even knows the guys at Insomniac and still dared to give the game only a 7/10. so he's brutally honest and one of the harshest reviewers out there, and has been doing it for over 10 years professionally. he's on my PSN friends list and i've been seeing him playing KZ2 quite a lot... (to clarify im not bragging here, he's only well-known where i live, in Finland which is a tiny country heh). so in my mind there's NO WAY the game will suck. i could bet all my games on that. it will be a great game. the ONLY problem is the stiff competition in the FPS genre, it might not be the best FPS ever, but i feel it will be ONE of the best. even if it just equals COD4, that's pretty damn awesome huh?
Didn't the OPM UK (official playstation magazine UK) give KZ1 a 10 out of 10? I thought the first Killzone was a good game but it had too many flaws/problems to deserve a 10 out of 10.
It was 9/10 i believe. Still OPMuk is done by different people than it used to be. (OPM, OXM and ONM uk are all done by the same company now)
giggity giggity giggity giggity!
Thats kool. Art book looks really nice. Lucky S.O.B.
Reason 1 being FF13 and Tekken 6. Btw, is this a special ed? Cuz. . .I havnt seen a special ed for preorder?
Cant wait for KILLZONE 2
For either being too much like COD4, or not similar enough to COD4. I've seen both complaints from them. =P
