Massive Killzone 2 Image Comparison: 2007 vs 2008 vs 2009


"An aesthetic insight into the progression of a video game's development.

It's not often that you get to see a game three years in a row. With Killzone 2 we were "lucky" enough to have a glimpse in 2005 in the form of a CGI trailer.

There have been plenty of comparisons showing how close the actual game's graphics are to that trailer, but what about a comparison of the game's engine from early 2007 to its final 2009 build, via 2008?

Lots of improvements across the board, many you'll be unable to spot in this comparison, but you will notice shallow differences and huge improvements, especially when comparing 2009 to 2007."

I sincerely hope the game delivers.

Looks very good.

I'm a huge Killzone fan and love the graphics of this game. But I think in terms of color and some other things the first build was the best one. Look at the fifth image. The tone of the skin looks most natural to me and I think the composition of colors as a whole really fits the style of the game.
Nevertheless the last build is clearly improved on the tech. side. Please don't kill all my bubbles. It's just my opinion.

Shadow Flare3567d ago

i thought i read somewhere that the final build was alot better then the review build aswell. So if it is, then it looks even better now

This isn't old. The comparison is new and features three builds, rather than the previous two. Is really interesting seeing it from 07, 08 and 09.

TruthBTold3567d ago

these comparisons side by side in order to really appreciate the modifications GG made. I was wondering if the 2009 are the finished build or it will still be even more polished when we get the game on disk.

MisfitSmurf3567d ago

i like sev's face in the 08 and 09 build on the 3rd picture >.> he looks like an imp

American politics = for the win!
We never STARTED a war without getting profit of it!
If we started a war some years ago, and its to early for a new one, then we just change the flight routes of our planes to HAVE a reason for a new one!
If we still need money, our stock markets get a Trojan Horse from our government. Share holders get in panic, the world gets in panic and our US Dollar is getting more worth!

We gave you McDonalds and you lovin it! You lovin it to give this restaurant with 100% proved meat your money to make america stronger!

Intel/ MS/ Apple started an electronic war which you still enjoy and support!

I know some of you Demonstrators buy a Playstation3 to be against "all this american" but the bomb already droped in Japan many years ago. Remember again, you cant win this war- not in sales, not in games, hell, you cant even win against the RROD, cause its the RED RING, a secret symbol to remember you that YOUR FLAG carries this symbol... the symbol of DEATH!

The truth is, that Sony is NICE talking about how many nuclear weapons they have to make US afraid, and because they also think that cows are holy, their Milka midgets called "fanboys" suc* the milk from it and "bringing it Home"!

To be a PS3 Pro-Gamer and a proud owner of some Terminator Hardware of the future you must have 10 bubbels on n4g! Hah, its all because they know that America destroyed them with one Bubble!

We dont TALK BILLSH!T like you and Sony. We drop the bomb with one bubble left when we think its time and then....

...We play - you wait!

Thats the reality - "This is living"

Magic_The_Celt3567d ago

wow, yeah dude get a f*cking grip you sad cunt haha

dukadork23567d ago

that's some powerful sh!t you're smoking!

on a totally different subject, this is simply amazing.
nobody has ever done anything like that, notice how all xb!tches are gone


jcfilth3567d ago (Edited 3567d ago )

"I know some of you Demonstrators buy a Playstation3 to be against "all this american"

NO! We are against bad/cheap/faulty hardware.

"We gave you McDonalds and you lovin it!"

McDonalds? seriously? McDonalds is just like the 360, popular but really really low, I mean, EXTREMELY LOW IN QUALITY! of course they are both American. Trash/fast food, trash/fast(already maxed out) hardware.

"their Milka midgets called "fanboys" suc* the milk from it"

Are you talking about the "Halo" name on future 360 games? Halo Karts?Halo Cooking?Gears Of Halo? Halo Soccer? I just couldn't stop thinking about Halo when you said "suc* the milk from it"

"We dont TALK BILLSH!T like you and Sony. We drop the bomb"

Yeah no doubt about that! how many houses has the 360 destroyed?

"...We play - you wait!"

No...WE play - YOU WAIT..for your 360 to come back from the repair store!!

Japan(Sony)= New Technology
US(Microsoft)= Copy-cats

It's just what I've seen in the 10 years I've been living in the US.

Wouldn't it be better to spend all those billions of dollars going to war every month, in new cutting edge stuff so that we can finally buy some good "american" products? A reliable Xbox for example?

The US has been spending billions of dollars every month for about 6 or 7 years in war and now they are crying because the economy is fcked up? what a bunch of retards!

Once again, some 360 fanboys never stop to amaze me with their high level and capacity of ignorance every single day.

Microsoft: "Sony will start charging for PSN in a year" WRONG!!
"HD-DVD will win" WRONG!!!
"360 has better graphics" WRONG!!
"with our new 360 models, the RROD problem will be solved" WRONG!!

Looks like some 360 dumbsh!ts run out of excuses against the PS3 and now they just don't know what to talk about. o_O

[email protected] to be a 360 fanboy right now...and God Of War 3 is not even out yet. ;D

As for Pablo Escobar, please leave The Boss out of your stupid comments.

goflyakite3567d ago

GG lived up to the trailer.

He's lost his mind.

glad its made this improvement.. when they showed the first build the biggest gripe i had with killzone 2 was how horrible the character models looked.. it just dirint fit the atmosphere in the game at all

The Great Melon3566d ago

I remember seeing the trailer for the opening sequence a long time ago and was in awe until I saw one thing. While the models were a little wonky back then, it was the smoke trail from the destroyed transport at the beginning that irked me. It looked horrible after everything else I had just seen.

Leio3567d ago

Quick craw back to your xhole

Bathyj3567d ago

You're pathetic.

*dusts hands*

Man, that was too easy.

JayTe 1233567d ago (Edited 3567d ago )

i really can't wait until february 25th but i must say how some of you guy's go on about this game is pathetic... every game that has been released or is yet to be released on the "other console" is crap according to some people. and there are quit a few on N4G...
"alan wait sucks just look at Killzone 2 or heavy rain!!" "Killzone 2 sh*ts all over halo 3!!" etc.etc.
yes Killzone 2 looks like it's going to be spectacular, GOTY material, but that doesn't mean other games are bad...

jcfilth3567d ago

You buying a 360 is pathetic!

CryofSilence3567d ago

Yeah, it's pathetic you're not going to be able to play it.

r3xmund13567d ago

If this was Halo:ODST, you would hear all the M$ boys crying and hollering claiming "victory" yet again....

But because its on the Black Beauty we have to put up with terds talking trash. I played the BETA and the GAMEPLAY was astounding, the fact that the graphics make you wanna spooge is a bonus.

And BTW victory can only be claimed at the END of a war... The PS3 is just a YEAR and a bit old in PAL territories you old fogies have been around since 2005...

Gimme a break
