8.5 Killzone 2 Review The Final Word: Killzone 2 represents a depilated universe of war which is somber and grotesque, coupled with its intense gameplay mechanics, this game warrants a serious look if you are a fan of shooters and addicted to franchises such as Call of Duty. A worthy addition to your PlayStation 3 library and actually warrants all your pennies in case you do not own one. Individuals who look at this game as the next Half-life, an evolutionary shooter may go home disappointed since it aims and succeeds in providing oodles of fun and joy.

Why dont they wait until they can also play the game online? Seems rather unfair to review what is essentially 50% of the package. I dont recall this happening with many previous games, especially ones so MP orientated.

Either way, 8.5 isn't bad for an FPS single player campaign. Usually the weak point of the genre.

MURKERR3568d ago (Edited 3568d ago )

they could have given the single player 9.9 for all i care

stop posting half assed reviews sheesh, do they really need the hits that bad? review the full game or wait, why do i never see this with 360 or wii exclusives?

Sasanova3568d ago

for real, im fukin tired of people reviewing only the single sends the wrong message across. notice at the top of the review... they cant fukin wait for MP, which im sure will add at least 1 extra point to every review.

terrandragon3568d ago

Are you guys saying that the single-player sucks? Why are you contradicting yourselves?

UnwanteDreamz3568d ago

Could someone tell me what "budget pocket" is and why it got an 8.5?

ChampIDC3568d ago

If they're going to post such a review, they need to make it apparent in the title that it's only the single-player, and it shouldn't count toward any aggregate score.

Contradiction in one sentence?

"Individuals who look at this game as the next Half-life, an evolutionary shooter may go home disappointed since it aims and succeeds in providing oodles of fun and joy."

I know the scores say "not an average" but I thought that is the point of rating different aspects.

Overall - 8.5, Should be 9 overall

Why have an overall score if it does not correlate to the other scores.

And what does "Budget Pocket" mean? Budget Pocket received an 8.5.

Sitdown3568d ago

is a contradiction or not............but its a horrible sentence....I initially thought it was a translation gone wrong.

So the game is not as good as Half Life and disappointing.... because it's fun?

Sarcasm3568d ago

Maybe they're saying Half Life is evolutionary but not much fun? Because I sure as well was extremely bored with it.

Currently Killzone 2 has a 92,2% on GameRankings and a 94,0% on MetaCritic. That is very similar to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which scores 93,6% and 94,0%.

The average score om my PS3 games (and I do love all my games - otherwise they are traded in for other ones) is about 87% according to GR and MC.

The verdicts are out. Killzone 2 scores up there with the best of them. An average of 90%+ for a FPS is more than good enough for. I'm so so sooo gonna love Killzone 2.

Weak review... from a noname site.. that's all. The game is still 94 on metacritic.. that is the real score.

Alexious3568d ago

Pathetic review, once again with that originality bullshit. There haven't been truly revolutionary games since ages in the shooter genre, dammit.
