Oh my god, obviously it's so biased. ;). Killzone 2. D-e-l-i-v-e-r-s. Say it with meh. D e l i v e r s.
what ever floats your boat mate:P
maybe a 9/10. Not that I'm surprised or anything.
I wonder what pp is doing :p
The very last comment they make, summing up Killzone 2 in just 2 words: "Just superb". :D
Pre ordered from Play yesterday, i also ordered sf4 and booked the monday and tuesday after their release off work too. Gaming heaven lol!
you'll play in 2009. El Fin.
and all the other nit-picking from some previews. Don't worry though, Edge won't let us down. I can alomst feel that 6/10 rating :)
Edge, Eurogamer, and Gametrailers will definitely fix it, as you pointed out... Edge will just complain because mario is no where to be found...Eurogamer will say 'a good effort for the PS3, but would have been better on the 360'...and GT?...a simple video review without audio entirely...and 7/10 at the end...GT doesn't even need to have commentary for their reviews anymore...as they obviously have nothing to do with the end score anyway... not to mention various GT staff blatantly admitting that they don't care for the PS3...and that the 360 has, and always will have, 'superior content'...I guarantee for every positive review of killzone 2...there will be several ungrounded, unjustified, pre-conceived reviews from several sites and mags...
My worry is that OPM Australia gave World at War a 10/10 and called it a white knuckle thrill ride of the year. Personally, I was very disappointed in WaW...it was technically and artistically inferior to Modern Warfare.
They also said "Killzone 2 is the best console first person shooter ever". Now regardless of whether or not CoD:WaW is the second best, they still think it tops Modern Warfare and Resistance 2, which is no mean feat. @Kleptic "Pre-conceived" is the word I'm going to pick out of your post. It's pretty much spot-on. Pre-conceived notions of KZ2 include: The graphics are perfect The gameplay is lacking The innovation is lacking The AI is poor Many of these CANNOT be overturned in people's minds. There is NO such thing as perfect graphics so the flaws will be duly noted. By analysing the gameplay too much people will say it's inferior because they won't be having fun - they'll be analysing the gameplay. By even bringing up the topic of innovation they will bring up games that have "done it before" such as cover systems, class-based multiplayer etc. and forget that KZ2 is as unique a game as you can get. There is no AI that can behave like a human being (yet) and so KZ2's AI will have flaws. We might also get some oddball comments about the occasional pauses (when loading/streaming the level in certain sections). I'm sure this will be enough to take off a mark or two (Gears 2's MP issues don't deserve the same treatment though).
Emperor visari voiced by Brian Cox the physicist?
You know,OFFICIAL PLAYSTATION MAGAZINE (Australia)? Don't you think it is in their best interest to give the most hyped PS3 exclusive game ever a perfect score?? Geezus.
I like "Worse than: Ability to fly Better than: Resistance 2"
So far so good and I'm really hyped up about this game!!! A review from an independent site instead of official PS magazine that all agree would be best. However, I want to judge this myself and want the demo now, not the day before the game is released before plunking down $60+.
Umm just because its the Official Playstation Magazine doesn't make them biased.. get your head out of your a$$
As this is the official mag for the ps3, wouldn't you think they'd give a superb score. Ill believe the hype once i get my hands on it, the internet just isn't being fair with this game
quite possibly the greatest game of our lives
aye...a very bold statement! i just cant wait to play!
i guess you haven't played that much games then... anyway, KZ2 looks to be great tho.
And the list of greatest games ever played is fairly long. For me, there is nothing wrong with having multiple games as greatest games for one player. From the sounds of it, Killzone 2 will be added to that list. Where it winds up on that list in numerical order is yet to be discovered but my hopes for the title are high.
once in a while a game comes along n blows everythinng youve ever played out of the water, with the physics in KZ2 this looks to be one of those games. the only thing i hate about gettin games like this is having a sleepless night before launch day.
In terms of animation, Killzone 2 will become the bench mark in which future FPSs will model after. Killzone's animation is flawless, and quite remarkable.... too bad the textures don't match it!!!!! ANIMATION IS ABOVE ALL, but GRAPHICALLY (TEXTURES) this game is way overhyped by sony cult members....
textures are unbelevable, as a beta tester i can say that, i presume youve played the games too?
and ordered the 50 CENT game instead! DOH!
Why Nate has some chimera eyes on him lol XD
Sh!t, THEY GOT DRAKE!!!!
No no...it's cool. Sully just betrayed him again. He'll come around in a minute or two...
'FIRST DAY PURCHASE'
one phrase actually.
Noez, it kant b tru! Fayk. Sony payd fr dis revyoo!
Chalk another 10 up on the board!
I'll just cut to the chase.I am waiting for the IGN review
as do countless other websites worldwide
PLAYSTATION®3 + KILLZONE 2™ = THE 1st TRUE NEXT-GEN FPS ;-P
ya and after ign give it a perfect score wait for gamespot , then 1up , then gamespy until u get ur 360 back from repairs
Perfect game on a perfect console. Hopefully this will peel me away from Crysis. I cannot wait! Only on PS3. :D
there you go.
i want ign and gt reviews.
GT is owned by MTV which has a 500m marketing deal with Microsft GT gave MGS4 a 9.3/10 and a bad game like Halo 3 9.8/10 GT gave a bad game like Lost odyssey 8.8/10..pathetic
same reason i Dont want OPM reviews... owned by ps.....
@Hiruma Incorrect.Its owned by Future Pub. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... They also own Nintendo Power and Official Xbox Magazine @Gamekings GT won't agree with you.Deal with it
OPM isn't owned by "ps", or Sony for that matter. I'm waiting for the IGN review as well, but I can't believe people actually visit GameTrailers for their journalism-scented droppings. The videos are the only reason to ever type their URL into your browser.
Indeed you guys are right its owned by Future publishing..but still.If I made a magazine called Official Sega Magazine I would rate all the sega games with good scores. Im not saying KZ2 is bad its far from that , I just want to see more reviews from more sources.
@Hiruma Now that I could agree with you on.In the meantime the IGN review will arrive in a few days
an official play station magazine wouldn't over rate ps3 games...come on. they rate their games against games on 1 platform so what would they gain from doing that. i actually trust OXM and OPM more than i would almost any internet websites, with ign being the exception.
killzone 2 SUCKS [email protected] crying journalist and....50 cent is better lol this game is going to be EPIC
"OPM Australia Killzone 2 Review" Out of all reviews I take the official mag reviews the least serious (or any mag / source dedicated to one brand)... Thats why I like the Maxim review because it isnt bias... Cant wait to see what IGN, GT and GS have to say... GT especially since they was so awesome with their reviews in 08...
MEGAMERS gave it 9.9 /10 (IGN of middle east) 356k croatia gave it 9.7 Hungarian Play magazine (associate of GI) gave it 10/10
want this game fall you are a gamer you should love great games killzone 2,alan wake,uncharted 2,convection,halo:odst,gow3 I love them all,and will buy and enjoy the hell out of them don't know but you should reconsider the way you think about consoles. do you WISH seeing this game flop or suck,don't know STRANGE HOW THE HELL CAN FANBOYS HATE GAMES,THEY ARE GAMERS???
i wonder what the maxim reviewer was thinking about when he was rating killzone 2... "Ohh these guys don't have any man boobs so it must be worth 3.5/5" i wonder if the review score increases if the characters wear less clothes too... =O
they gave SF4 a 3/5 and KZ2 a 3.5/5 Maxim is a porn magazine They even gave 2 human /Haze- 4/5
It'd make sense seeing as 50 cent is topless most of the time.
The Maxim review was a typical thing to write. It's got great graphics.... but the gameplay isn't the best. Doesn't matter if it IS the best gameplay, it sounds credible. "AHahahaha!! I KNEW that the gameplay was bad because the graphics are so great!" Thought process goes like this: Wow Killzone 2 looks great in that trailer - LOOKS LIKE A GREAT GAME Haha Killzone 2 will never match those graphics Wow Killzone 2 does look great - BUT GAMEPLAY WILL SUCK All the while they're playing they will be looking for flaws in the gameplay - "oh yeah it looks great but the GAMEPLAY!!!" - am I having fun? Sort of - why am I having fun - it's not fun! Shooting enemies - boring! How you should be playing Killzone 2 is to let it wash over you. You don't neglect the graphics, they're a part of the experience. They immerse you in the world. As soon as you forget about being immersed in the world and think about "why the gameplay is good" you start to think things like "oh but it's not INNOVATIVE!" and "oh the AI wasn't perfect there" and "I've done this 1000 times before!" - whereas if you just play the game and immerse yourself in its world, you don't care about these things, and you just have a load of fun. The main problem is that the hype has been going on for too long. It gives people time to doubt. Sure, Halo 3 had more hype, but it wasn't for as extended a period. Had Halo 3 had hype up to this point, people would be saying the same things like "yeah sure the multiplayer is fun, but what about the SINGLE-PLAYER gameplay?", "well the AI is good but the control layout isn't as good as COD4!", "Halo 3 doesn't INNOVATE!". Then we'd have loads of anti-hype articles.
And.... there you have folks!
are you F**king serious? I question whether you are a gamer or not if you read the Maxim Magazine for game reviews, when its a porn mag.
aww he didn't mention my name (rocky212), only said "a user" :(
sorry dude! i honestly thought i put yer name on! everyone can see when they click the link tho!
you should have put his name dude
Wait you like Maxim review?????? ????!?!?!?!?!? You actually interested in their reviews or women?
LOL seriously As much as I think the Maxim review for KZ2 is stupid. They have some super hot women on there
but maybe the person reviewing killzone 2 didn't like the game? You know those things called opinions that people have? Perhaps he didn't enjoy street fighter as it involves a great deal of skill, or just doesn't like fighting games? Or he prefers 3rd person shooters like 50 cent. The alternative is that 50 cent is better. Owning a ps3 and 36o I can honestly say that if that is true then I fear for the future of the human race.
get used to 9s and 10s guys, cus thats what this game gives u... if i see 1 review below 9, honestly, fanboy shi aside, i will never visit that site again cus honestly, fanboy shi aside, once a decade do we get a game of this quality. if your the only one in the group of millions who disagrees about 9s and 10s, tell me whos more likely to be wrong...
