Watch and Listen to IGN's impressions on one of the most anticipated games of 2009. Enjoy!
But this was posted before and it is i think a month old i expect 10/10 from IGN and IGN is the only site i trust
http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... I know people don't have access to IGN Insider, but this video just came in the IGN newsletter. We have seen their take on the preview build, but this is their impressions on the final build
thanks for the clarification Jeff Haynes is reviewing KZ2 Jeff is the best editor in the world . I respect that man Cant wait for KZ2 awesomeness
Who said you can't go in guns blazing and that it requires tactics? He must of taken at least 300 shots and didn't die once. Granted the gameplay and game itself looks beautiful, but the A.I. manages to miss you from 2 feet away, and then just stand still for 2 seconds, and then when you do take on shots you don't even get fazed.
the AI in the latter stages of KZ2 is termed as KILLER AI does that tell u anything the final boss in KZ2 has almost lieflike AI also IGN was playing it on EASY
it would be nice if the firken guy giving his "impressions" would actually give his impressions on the game rather than running us through whats happenin on the screen...which he does for almost the whole video! game looks wicked though, ive already made my own impressions
It looks pretty, action looks frenetic... But... Am I the ONLY one noticing those annoying framerate issues? I'm not sure if this is the final code but if it is, I'd be a bit worried.
there u have it 10 from ign... well doesn't im gonna pick it up anyway .... :) but ign is the only site i trust......
if you watched the video you could maybe have understood from the reviewer that there where NO framerate issues. I know what you are talking about, I dont think thats because of the game.
I HAVE watched this and many other videos, and in every single of them, the developers keep mentioning that the game has a nearly flawless framerate. However, that's not nearly what the actual video is showing, and I'm not only talking about this one, but others from IGN and Gamersyde. Therefore, whether no website has shown a final code video, which is entirely possible, or the game actually has some noticeable framerate issues. I guess we'll see it first from reviews and ultimately from personal experience.
as hopefull as I'm that KZ2 will get 10/10 from every review, they'll somehow drag it from that 10 just for the 'no co-op' reason! if only co-op exist, then I'll have no more reason that I can think preventing KZ2 from the magic 10! either way, even if they are going to put it as a 5/10, I'll still buy it day 1! only a month left to spare but this wait is killing me!
I just watched the video again in HD. I can confirm that the lag or framerate problem your talking about is not the game, but the video it self.
Its the video. Non-scaled on my machine is fine, fullscreen, fps drops.
Aquanox try watching the video on a computer other than the pile of crap you have now. I see no framerate issues on my desktop, but my laptop is a different story. If I'm on the laptop selecting HD is like selecting Play slideshow. I looked at your previous post history to see what your motives are. Why do you care so much about the xbox selling better than the PS, etc? What gain do you receive personally? Now add in your comments about KZ2 and "framerate issues" that are not there, and I think we have a classic (insert favorite fanatic fan term) on our hands.
Aquanox is full of sh!t, he's a 360 fanboy with a agenda. I never seen the framerate issues he is talking about. It is the way his computer handles the videos
The guy cant snipe very well. It's like he is hitting the analogue stick to much rather than fine aim his shot. Probably doesnt use the PS3 controller much. I mean, he cant aim for $hit. He's playing on easy mode and the AI bots are practically just waving their hands at him so he can shoot them in the head...
an FPS getting a 10/10 from ign is possibly one of the most unlikely things to see....and we wont be seeing it in feb...but it should get a good score still tho
a high budget run-of-the-mill shooter. edit: uh oh aquanox. you are praising this game and sucking it off along with all these idiot fanboys. better be ready to have 1 bubble like me. :)
Your computer is probably stuttering or something because I see perfectly smooth gameplay.
I pre-ordered the demo of KZ2.I'll see how it turns out
as for how it turns out it doesnt even need to be said that it is AWESOME Ofcourse some haters could give the game less than 9 but nothing stops people from buying KZ2 the game is that good
My PSN is Nintendo_Dude and I play Resistance 1 and 2. I also use a second account for MGO. What is yours,Omega 4,5,6,7 etc?
also Nintendo dude---that explains everything seriously do u own a wii---haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Man I'm so lost on how so many people can Still be skeptical of this game. lol. Man what is everyone afraid of? It being too good? Seriously every siteyou can think of has had positive views on this game and even some sites trying to nitpick at the game could hardly find anything valid. So after reading some reviews and some previews of this game which were all positive, what are you looking for? lol. A bad review so you can say, "I told you so." Seriously man this game will be a masterpiece, I was looking through the forums the other day and someone had a gif of killzone 2. It shows sev wading through water under what looked like a pier. As he was walking you could see the water rise and fall and droplets of water were dripping from the top of the pier, all while being illuminated by lightning every few seconds. All I can say is to the people who don't believe in the hype, you may not believe now, but if you play the demo or even when the rest of the reviews are released. YOU WILL BE KILLZOWNED!!!
@Omega My account is fake? You have not proved it.I'm wondering if the biggest PS3 defender on this site doesn't have a PS3 8)
TROLL proof is not even needed your comment history is enough to prove you TROLL start crying on Feb 27 cuz KZ2 will blow everyone away we dont care about reviews from some hater websites
Is not fake, i've added you on psn
yea i have seen this level on Giga.de they showed the 4th Level. and the wind had an effect to the Water. But i described it as a sea, cause my english is not that good, pier is the word what i searched for.thx Killzone 2 is a truly masterpiece, i hope they use this engine for other Games/genre like RPGs.
I can't believe nobody has pointed out those framerate issues. I hope this one is not the final code (at least what is shown in the videos)
"I can't believe nobody has pointed out those framerate issues." Well, actually...YOU have. Twice. Yes, we get it: The INTERNET video has framerate issues. Thanks for the heads-up, you Good Samaritan with Absolutely No Ulterior Motives, you.
Lets say you're correct and it's only a problem of bad encoding. How about the plethora of all other videos from IGN, GamersyDe, Gametrailers, and many others? I'm yet to find one without the framerate dropping to worrying levels. It never gets unplayable, but if you play COD4 and then this one (this build), chances are that you will find the slowdowns very noticeable. For a game that has been in production for so long, I expect this one being an old build and the final code nearly framerate locked.
I laugh at your frame rate explanation and expertise. Please do us a favor and spare us the rest of your bubbles.
Considering we are in the open zone, I can freely call you a dipsh1t. Now that we've cleared what you are, let's just think for a second. If there was *really* a framerate issue, don't you think anyone OTHER THAN YOURSELF would have said something? If you truly think you're being honest and not trolling, then don't you think that maybe, just maybe you have to take those Bill Gates glasses off your eyeballs, dumbass? And if you *are* trolling, could you at least use a different picture for your avatar? That would make it a little less obvious. I'm getting used to your retarded comments about PS3 games anyway, how about being a little less predictable? Hell, make a duplicate account and use the name of a PS3 character (hell, Nariko maybe?) and spew some bullsh1t. At least in the beginning you might fool someone, you retard.
I must have missed the part with the framerate issues when I was distracted by the reviewers talking about there not being any framerate issues.
Damn, I want the game so badly.. the wait is such a pain :(
yeah claiming teamxbox will review it wa skinda dumb, but ill let that one slide. I expect great scores for the game, cant wait, want my demo from my preorder.
But yea except Gamedaily, EDGE,gamesradar, 1up, gamespot , ripten , variety, GT and 1/2 other SONY haters But ofcourse nothing prevents us from buying KZ2 IGN is bigger than all those gaming websites combined
It may just be me, but Gamespot's mellowed out a bit. I could be wrong though. Who knows with 1Up and it's not really certain for Gametrailers. You're pretty much right on for all else.
I think GS have cooled down a bit as well, but from all the other sites you mentioned I expect 8's.
but 1UP is DEAD! No?
Watching the banners it reminded me the banners in Mirrors edge PC, those kind of physics weren't included on the console versions due the lack of the PhysicX engine but it seems that the PS3 is capable of reproduce it, I hope in near future games we can see more of those dynamic physic effects in game.
Take your Fanboy glass away and watch the AI reactions. This game AI reactions looks like Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. Don't get me wrong Call of Duty 4 its a great game.
Too many spoilers playing for myself when it comes out!
mother of games that looks awesome. i was skeptical before because i didnt play the first one and wasnt sure what to expect but this video has put my mind at rest. great way to start the new year this and SF4 are the games im looking forward to this year.
Well i,m not pre-ordering the demo i'll rather shoot myself in the head like that Sony jerk said once.
Your X360 RRODed killing your mum
HAHAHA GTFO kid you don't even own a PS3.
"...i'll rather shoot myself in the head..." Please don't try to entice us with promises you won't keep.
No sweat, azzhole, I'll help you do it! I have a clip with your name on it.
i saw the first 15 seconds and couldnt watch no more dont want a spoiler just wanted 2 see how much the graphics changed
one is most obvious tied to the story line, I really hate reviewers giving away things that are tied to the story... Review graphics and gameplay only, don't mention anything about twists in the story...
Thank you 7.1, I am now not going to watch the video. Good lookin out.
Yea, as soon as the guy started talking I just closed the video. It's not too far away anyways. And I've already had bits spoiled because of the internet.
A "demilitarized zone" is a place where there are NO weapons or military personnel/facilities... That tears it, I've always thought that review guy with the grumbly voice and the incessant stuttering was the worst editor at IGN. I can't take his freaking pauses before he says anything... it drives me crazy and I just want to punch him (3:33- "uh, eh,uh..."). I won't even mention all the other moronic comments he made on the footage. He's probably a really decent guy though and I shouldn't have these feelings... sorry man.
Gameplay looks weak. The AI sort of waits for you to kill them, they look confused. The charactors don't seem mortal enough. Do they have shields?
A failing, I think, that many games suffer from... Gears and Gears 2 have Locust just sitting there taking fire without any reaction until they've been hit a prescribed number of times and perform a default "flinch" to taking bullets to the face.
No they will kill you or charge when losing the battle. I never seen a game do like Killzone 2, maybe MGS4 AI. I think the background effects in KZ2 are cool but its obvious the gameplay itself took major hits to allow more to happen at once. The immersive feel they tried to get across actually makes the gameplay seem some what lackluster(you might hear it mentioned in some of the reviews)
You get the disagree's because you are a known MS troll here trying to bash a game that nearly 100% of the gaming journalists that have previewed it have given the AI extremely high remarks. Your opinion means nothing since it is tainted with the fanboy glasses you wear. Now please, take this as a bit of friendly advice and grow up, release that fanboy in you and never let him back in. Until then, expect to be known as a trolling fanboy for the MS camps.
Always have always will. For every great game like KZ2 (apparently), they also get stuck reviewing Legendary and Soldier of Fortune. For a video review, you think IGN is gonna crank up the AI and get owned every 2 seconds? How informative would that be? Watch the video review of CODWAW and then go play it on veteran. You might be asking yourself "Is that guy Superman or do I just suck?"
People complain about the AI in Killzone 2, need to go play Gears of War 2. Those idiot locusts will hide behind cover... On you're side... And not to mention that most of the character models are floating 1 feet off the ground.
Said it before and I'll say it again. You cannot judge gameplay on video footage, hence the reason its called gamePLAY not gameWATCH. Gameplay is all about how it feels to control, the movement etc etc, unless the pads in your hands you havent got a clue how the game PLAYS.
Well I have to disagree with you here. In general, if I watch gameplay videos before I buy a game, I know pretty much exactly how it's going to play. Controls obviously I can't tell, but I expect them to be good enough, and I hardly ever have an issue with whatever control scheme they give me - I just get on and learn to use it. It's not fun unless I actually get hands-on - but I know what to expect.
That's fine, but I'll have to disagree with you. You cant really tell squat unless you've played the game. So many times I've seen videos that look to have good gameplay, played it myself, terrible and visa versa, bad looking video, great in your hands. Either way, I've actually PLAYED the game, and it's fantastic, the gameplay is somewhat similar to COD4, dont recall all the people stating how bad the gameplay looked in COD4 videos. This is why you have demos, so you can TRY the game rather than watch a video, gaze into your crystal ball and come to some random conclusion.
I agree with Fishy. The only way to truly tell how a game plays is to... well... PLAY it.
yeah I'm with FF...while some games just look unfun for numerous reasons...there have been plenty of titles that did the opposite of what the videos portrayed for me... sadly...Lair looked fun to me back in 2007, according to the videos...luckily I never bought it, but rented it instead after it was a disaster in reviews...and it was a disaster (interestingly, not because of the controls...those worked fine for me...it was every thing else that was incredibly lame)... same with haze...downloaded the demo...the game sucked...and that was before the reviews showed up...the gameplay videos looked fun more or less...but actually playing it and seeing it on my TV made it a very sub par game... and it goes the opposite...saw 50 co-op videos for R2 before it released...and thought it looked kind of lame...couldn't tell why, it just didn't look overly fun...then played it...and its the single best part of the title overall... just saying that I personally never give final judgment on something without playing it...sometimes the video impressions are the same after I play it...but definitely not always...
I thought Uncharted's controls looked too clunky but when I finally picked it up and played it they felt fine. It's all about how well the person is playing. If this guy was going to town just taking everything out no one would have brought up anything about the gameplay. It's all relative. Lets use our critical thinking skills here people.
Major spoliers in that video. Should have been told!!!
The game looks great, but i don't know if he was playing it in easy ... but that AI...oh boy. Those soldiers just stopped in front of him.
I was confused by that as well. The game looks awesome but at one point(after shantytown) he walks into a battlefield with at least 6 helghast soldiers and all they do is look at him, then run around like they were mentally challenged or something. I'm sorry but the AI looks like it needs work.
