Gamespot, 1up and Edge also other less well known sites like Deeko and Gamesmaster are yet to post reviews.

"if there was one ding, its killzone 2 doesnt feel all that fresh"

Like halo 3, cod4 and GTA4 are fresh. Dont get me wrong, 9.2 in the grand scheme of things is an amazing score, but not comparitively speaking from particular websites, that blatantly use "ps3 exclusive standard" for their reviews. Seriously, after watching the vid, i felt as if they would give the game a 9.4 - 9.6 but gave it a 9.2. I know the GT senior fanboy editor had something to do with this. They didnt even have the main dude who does the reviews review this.

bias is ever ramped in gaming media. LOL @ GT
Gears - 9.5
but R2 - 9.1
halo 3 - 9.8 (9.5 STORY), GTA4 - 9.8 (GOTY), BUT MGS4 9.4 (8.7 STORY LMFAO)

I knew GT was always bias. RE5 review will get 9.6/10 and GOTY 2009 for sure. FKCU GT!

Gametrailers is owned by Viacom/MTV.

And Viacom and Microsoft = BFFs

I'm not saying that Microsoft has any influence over GT but they definitely let you know who they prefer.

Anyway, it's still a good score but I think the problem that most people are having is when they anoint games like Halo 3 and Gears as "OMG greatest ever" and then something better comes along that's more polished (COD4, Bioshock, Killzone 2), we have situations like this. Point being, I think reviewers judge PS3's games fairly but they go completely brain dead when it comes to Xbox 360 games.

Sarcasm5639d ago

" but they go completely brain dead when it comes to Xbox 360 games."

That's a good perspective. It may be that they don't hate the PS3, and they will judge the game accordingly. But it's more likely that they go ape shiet over a 360 exclusive instead.

Danja5639d ago

well next is the edge review....Gamespot will give KZ2 a 9/10...

KZ2 are proving all the haters wrong....

callahan095639d ago

The way he talks up the story in this game, and some other reviews have stated nice things about the story, I'm surprised it scored only an 8.2 compared to the king of generic storytelling Halo 3. I love Halo 3, don't get me wrong, but 9.5 for THAT story? That's just insanity.

The 9.8 for presentation seems spot on. This game is gorgeous, and it's got some really slick and easy to use menus, with tons of stat-tracking which makes it all the more awesome to own and really sink your teeth into. 9.2 is a good score, but I still can't help but feel like this game is being judged on different grounds than other games. He says it falls just short of being Legendary, but I couldn't really figure out WHY NOT.

mastiffchild5639d ago

Callahan, mate, don't sweat it. All the US sites tend to have a MS bias(like all local papers willl route for their local team in sports coverage and, yes, even to the point of being soft on them in match reviews but don't give visiting teams the same wardstick to be judged bty-the extra bit here is the still simmering all these years later, problem that the US has with Japan(PH and POW treatment) and Japan has with the US-Hiroshima, Nagasaki-which raised its head during the Fallout3 thing last year and was rife in the US media when they didn't want better manufactured Jap cars imported to the US, and showing up Ford and GM in the process)and any Sony praise is very hard won-which makes it more meaningful than a Gears or Halo score.Many US sites feel honour bound to support those MS exclusives-hence the lack of import in the weak ending and unplayable state of Gears2 online or the total absinse of any quantifiable story in either L4D OR Halo3-don't get me wrong they're all great games but they aren't picked at the way R2 or KZ2 were and certainly don't have that pressure to innovate that SCE games do.
But the big thing is that even when people wanted Killzone2 ro fail(after all they laughed at Sony and GG for years saying it would flop)the very worst they could do was give it a 9 out of 10-hard won praise indeed than, just sad noone at these sites held their hands up like men and said "sorry, I was totally wrong about this" but did anyone expect decency let alone braveryfrom these people.

BananaSlug5640d ago (Edited 5640d ago )

watch the video and do a spoiler check

thanks in advanced

Hooded Vendetta5640d ago

Theres a few small spoilers, and maybe one boss spoiler. nothing thats going to wreck your playthrough.

If your going to buy the game no matter of this review, then dont watch it. If you are undecided then watch it... Then you'll buy it ;)

redsquad5640d ago

I saw one BIG spoiler, but luckily (or unluckily, depending on your view) I already knew about it before watching. It's a quick cut-scene clip, but people may not want know about it!

iHEARTboobs5640d ago

If you're going to click the link then just listen to the review if you have to but don't watch it. It'll be hard to do though so just skip it and buy the game.
