Destructoid: CES 2009: New Killzone 2 footage impresses

Destructoid: What's the hype about? Killzone 2 looks amazing, and these new videos definitely impress.

To be honest, I wasn't very excited about the title up until this week. I didn't understand they hype. I came to understand it a bit more after our CES team had a chance to get some hands-on time with the game on the show floor.

We followed that with a presentation on Killzone 2 and its inner workings. The presentation was peppered with clips that highlight visuals, technology and other details. The video above is a new trailer for Killzone 2, also aired at this presentation. This looks damned good.

It just looks sick. Incredible what they have achieved. Killzone 2 is a tour de force, no game comes even close to this awesomeness.

Look at this quote
"What do you think after seeing this cam footage? Is it just a pretty face on a mediocre game? "
-WTf is wrong with them. Have they not even played a little bit of this game.

Seriously, I think they are going to peg it for "Not fully customizable controls" or "some grayish color" or "not Halo"

if there ever was a shooter that HAS to be played......this is it.

Looks are one thing but what about the length? I hope it is at least 20+ hrs considering the amount of time and detail put into it.

Should be epic!

HighDefinition3566d ago

10 Hrs.

Which is 2 1/2 times longer than COD4s.

ultimolu3566d ago

...I've ran out of things to say about this game.
Just hurry up February! >-<

na2ru13566d ago

Are you nuts? It's only been 3.5 years and Valve only managed 7-9 hrs with the first 2004 HL2. HL1 was released...? 1997? Bungie only managed the same EVEN with those same corridor backtracking backwords and foward through same levels.

10hours is perfect.

It's baffling how this guy could have not been hyped until just this week. Killzone 2 has been looking amazing and we have had great reports from the beta for a long time. This guy was probably just one of the doubters that finally had seen enough that he could no longer doubt this game.

Killzone 2 is unique. I can't remember any other game that has ever been able to match or surpass its pre-rendered target video. It is also the first game that has a quality about it that looks a lot like pre-rendered CGI.

I am playing through Killzone Liberation for a second time right now and there is no doubt that Guerrilla know how to craft excellent gameplay. I can't wait for the end of next month.

It's Destructoid. Even if they were completely enthraled with a PS3 title, they would lie to the public just to create flames and generate hits in desperation. Heck, this has been their trend for two years now.

callahan093566d ago

Agreed! I can't wait for this game.

Did anybody see this question & answer on the Killzone 2 Ask the Dev forum? It excites me!

"2) Another Question: Does Killzone 2 engine make possible a future DLC MAP EDITOR?

Answer: 2. Tough one. But it is something we'll keep in the back of our minds for the future."

The idea of a map editor for multiplayer maps is just awesome! I hope we see it, and he didn't say no, so it seems possible.

Kain813567d ago

Bordel_19003567d ago (Edited 3567d ago )

360 man, according to Guerilla Games nothing in KZ2 is CGI everything is real-time.

You'll have to be more specific. Which movie? The intro movie is cgi.

edwineverready3567d ago (Edited 3567d ago )

The intro long intro i might add is cgi. they use this cgi film to explain the kz story. all cutscenes are in game. i am a big guerrilla kz2 fan but anybody can see the intro is cgi.

Traveler3566d ago

Yeah, the intro is CGI, but I like the way the rest of the game looks better anyway. I mean, the intro looks nice and it looks better in some ways, but overall I like the look of the in-game graphics more.

But it's nice to hear what destructoid thinks about the game that will change the world of gaming.

rbluetank3567d ago

Aclay3567d ago

LOL, calm down man. The guy walking across the screen near the end was just Herman Hulst, the Director/Head Honcho of Guerrilla Games.
