Killzone 2 will be a major hit, but will it even live up to the expectations of halo?
Campaign was mediocre and didn't look nothing like the trailer they showed at E3 2003 but the multiplayer saved it from the gutter but Halo 3 Killed it even more considering it had nothing new to the gameplay same boring crap and Halo 3 is actually Halo 3.2 Killzone 2 actually has surpassed the Halo series in terms of gameplay and graphics in every possible way considering it surpassed the trailer unlike Halo 3 trailer using CGI.
Another good point mate. Why was the Killzone2 CGI trailer scrutinized but the ridiculous Halo3 CGI trailer never got mentioned. Killzone2 actually surpassed the e3 2005 trailer in certain areas, and yet the halo3 graphics looks like a ps2 game. Why did the media magically forget to elaborate on that lie from M$+Bungie? Anyone? That's what i thought. I say f#ck the media.
i just want a fun game in witch i can tea-bag my friends :)
1) No little purple telletubies 2) No ray guns 3) No ninja sword DLC 4) No floaty physics 5) No well organized marketing.
Well said Budget! It doesn't have to be the next Halo, just a great game.
Hahaha, no. Killzone 2 is not the next halo Killzone 2 is the next Killzone The next Halo needs to be the new Killzone, good luck with that.
Bubbles to Budget and Crab for squashing the BS in the first 10 comments....the fanpeople are gonna have a field day when this gets approved. You know it will....
i agree that killzone 2 wont be another halo because the halo series are games that has been exaggeratedly hyped but was not as good people have hoped for, but with killzone 2 it was also hyped but probably is the only game that will go above and beyond the hype that the media have created(halo killer), so there lies the difference. can't wait 10 more days to go till lift off.
Article makes sense, espiciallly the advertising point
Why cant these "journalist" go take a running jump. Do they have to keep fanning the flames, only to turn around and say fanboys keep comparing KZ to Halo. I for one am glad its nothing like Halo. Its a game in the same genre, thats it. This is almost as bad as the days when every single FPS was still called a Doom clone. I guess the latest tennis game (whatever it might be) running at 60fps in 1080p, pushing 100's of thousands of polygons with dynamic lighting, ball physics, cloth physics, self shadowing charactors that sweat is nothing more than a Pong clone.
Killzone 2 will be better than Halo,much more fun and realistic.
I'm ready to be entertained. :)
because it is beyond it. 8 Days.
yep true nough n ya true its not halo but common that games way past prime while kz2 is now...
in Socom Confrontation you can dance over your enemies + Tee bag + talk smack + Hump them. The best part of it is, you can do it all simultaneously while talking smack. Everyone knows, Microsoft has Halo and Sony has Socom :) Side note: Socom Confrontation is not really a Ps3 formatted socom, but a Socom that happens to be a sequel, made in 2008 which is backward compatible with all ps3 around the world.
Carb and Budget just won the internet with their comments. I wish Bungie and all other FPS developers a lot of luck in surpassing Killzone 2's well done polishing of the FPS genre.
Thank god it won't be the next Halo. Halo is overhyped mediocre crap. Thank Sony and Guerrilla for Killzone 2.
What I do want is another game that will rival COD4 since that is what I play now. Halo was lost for me after number two. Three just didn't hold my attention like two did.
"They" make FUD articles like this :)
lol check out the poll on this site! seriously is that 3rd answer just to detect trolls?
Why? "cuz it's better than halo"
For some reason my pic won't show up... Anyways, LOL @ Halo.
Oh let it GO will you. How many cloned articles of the same damn thing time and time again do we need to see? Let's just all come back down to earth and sit comfortable and enjoy some video games.
stop comment on them u only encourage them
Killzone 2 is Killzone 2.... It's not trying to be anything but an amazing, solid and gorgeous shooter with a great multi player (finished the game and played in the BETA)... The only problem is that its not on Xbox 360 and it kills people like the writer of this 'blog'. Get over it.
exonkly r3x!! I'm just glad i have more than 1 nex gen console and that I get to enjoy everything both sides of the fence each side has to offer. So many great games have come my way :D On either console! But none have looked as good as killzone 2. I'm just gonna throw that in there. Because thats how much its graphics have impressed me. That i'll go against my usual ethics and boast about a game.
"“Master chief” is an iconic character, heck he is even on the cover of all the halo games." *Looks at Halo Wars cover* What?
Master Chief isn't even in Halo Wars. You are just looking at Spartan armor and thinking it's Master Chief. And yes they all look the same with armor on. haha I do think he is on the cover of Halo 3 however, unless that's just another Spartan. Need to look again.
I'm quoting what was said in the article silly & replying to it lol
Ohhhh. Well, I guess I am just more confused than usual. lol
Whats funny now is, he changed what was originally said there if you go check lol, it now reads "heck he is even on the cover of almost all the halo games." Added in that "almost" lol
We don't want a halo killer. We want a killzone1 killer. And people wonder where these flaimbait articles rear from. Killzone2 will be a awesome game and will be the pinnacle of quality "Next Gen" shooter that future games will have to live up to. The 360 extremists are just finding ways to avoid the obvious. Sales does not = quality. Ps3 owners have been saying this for a long time but it seems that is all the 360 loyalist have to hold on to. All their other arguments have been crashed lol. In a funny way they are actually giving KZ2 free press and public promotion lol.
Haze is a killzone1 killer lol.
Killing a game that was already dead and that was advertised as a halo killer is a confusing beast to kill. Cant we just stick with "being a good or even great game" This killing shenanigans is asinine.
is a Cinematic Theater of War. Halo never was. Killzone 2 wasn't meant to kill Halo, blame the media for that allegation. So xbots, no more saying that WE said it was a Halo killer, it was your biased media that said that to start a flame war.
but I think this game is better than Halo 3 IMO. Also the icon of the killzone franchise is the Helghast.
Good....what makes the game is the fact that it is NOT Halo. Killzone 2 has a gritty realism to it that sets it apart. Also, I won't have to listen to 12 year old morons yelling, "I got the battle-axe!!"
If you're gonna be an idiot at least get your facts straight. There is no "battle ax" there is a gravity hammer and an energy sword. Halo 3 was M rated just like Killzone 2, if 12 year olds can get the game then they can just as well get Killzone 2. Good luck getting away from the 12 year olds. Fortunately I have the mute option.
If this was the next Halo, I wouldn't be purchasing it. I personally never got into the Halo series. Not sure why many out there did. To each his own I guess.
lol is right Halo 3 Mp sucks but thats just my opinion
Isn't it cute when little kids play pretend journalist? lol
Shhhhh...you might hurt his feelings
i've never played a multilayered game before, now i am really excited!!! how many layers do you think it will have? but seriously, it's hard to take a blog seriously when you can't be bothered to do a little spellcheck before you put it on the web.
Here's a suggestion: Disable comments until a valid (or at least commonly-approved) piece has been approved.
The jump. That's the main reason Like Halo. Soon as Sony makes a FPS Ratchet and Clank we can have this little "vs" discussion.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "game journalism." Next up - Why the PSP2 might be the next NES!
Halo is Halo and Killzone will be Killzone. That's enough for me.
never be able to make sense out of these articles. Sony doesn't need Halo or a "Halo-killer". Sony needs to continue to release multiple AAA titles every year and lower the price of their console when possible. As a PS3 owner, I am more than happy with the games that are out right now and the games that are coming down the pipe. As for the game itself; if PS3 owners wanted Halo, they probably would have bought a 360 as well (or instead).
I think the point of the article, having read it, is to point out that this COULD and SHOULD be as a big a game as Halo if Sony would market it correctly...Sure he made the stupid point about Sev vs Master Chief, but if anyone thinks Halo is popular because of it's main character their delusional...Call of Duty 4 is bigger than Halo and you never see the 2 main characters...Ever. Halo is popular for 2 reasons: 1-people like it. Not me, personally, but 3 games on it's still really popular and that, by definition, means people like it. 2-Marketing...MS worked hard making Halo 2 and 3 games that gamers "MUST PLAY". Killzone 2 could be bigger than Halo if they marketed it correctly. Just seeing the game in motion would be enough to make people take notice, like Gears of War when that was first released. Sony does need a Halo sized game for their home team. They need a game that makes people take notice and say "I HAVE to play that game"...Why? Because it helps the brand immensely. I know their are Sony fans that think their doing just fine, but the reality is that they aren't. They were in a MUCH better position with the PS2 at this point in it's life than the PS3 is. Why? Because they had games people needed to play that weren't on XBOX (yet). A game that sells systems like Halo or Gears did is what they need. I firmly believe that, if positioned correctly, Killzone 2 IS that game.
Halo 3 is just a generic shooter. 360 fans however swallow anything up with the name Halo. The Halo RTS game is generic as can be for a RTS game yet it will sell simply on the Halo name. If it was merely a Halo clone people wouldn't want it. Just look at first party PS3 games, they outclass MS's offering by a vast margin in quality. Killzone 2 is truly a special experience. It if fan tastic that the PS3 is home to all the best shooters this generation.
I'm sorry, I'm not even a fan of Halo and calling it "generic" is not only baseless but incredibly incorrect...How can a genre DEFINING game be considered generic? This game has influenced so many shooters it's not even funny...One of them being the first Killzone...Which was, is and will always be a GENERIC shooter. I find Halo to be incredibly silly (just don't dig shooting colorful aliens and jumping 20 feet in the air) but the fact that controls seamlessly go from shooting to vehicles, 5 player co-op and huge maps to be pretty NON generic. And as much as KILLZONE 2 looks amazing and I can't wait to play it...It does have, in fact, one of the most generic shooter mechanics of all time...The exploding barrel.
Do we really need this guff these days? IMO Halo3 wasn't up to series standards so why isn't he more concerned with that rather than whether Killzone2 can be something it was never intended to be? I'm positive nobody at GG wanted to try to "be the new Halo"-yes it's a great series but to ape it is no way forward and Killzones universe is totally different to that of Halo isn't it? As for the MP comments-isn't it rather early in the piece to even mention that? Some of the stuff approved here lately-man!
Because we don't want it to be the next Halo... Let Halo be Halo and let Killzone be Killzone. Damn media always looking for controversy.
This article was very poorly written. It's simple Killzone will be Killzone, Halo will be Halo. It seems people will write whatever nonsense they can come up with for some hits. People need to stop stirring the fanboy pot, just be true gamers & enjoy the great games that each system offers! If you can't then enjoy what you have & let others enjoy what they have!
Couldn't agree more even if I had said that myself.
The title say's it all because it's better then halo that is why it wont be the next halo in term's of sales it might not be as good as halo or it might be but the game is not yet out so we wont know plus the game has reached 1.5 million copies preorded so far played halo 1 it was the best fps at that time but halo 2 and halo 3 just was crap if u compare halo 1 to them stop with the compareing cause if u start to compare then no games is better then that one so u wont buy it play it your self then say to your self is it the best fps u played in a long time i think yes
Mastercheif can kick Helghast a$$ better than Sev, Rico and the rest of Alpha. Hell Masterchief alone could win the war.
Well I agree that Masterchief can win the queer looking contest for sure.
Futuristic regenerating suit space marine vs. guy with regulation issue gun and w/o the ability to jump 20 feet in the air. Why don't we just add Cloud, Dante, or Kratos to that fight? Moron. If it's FPS's specifically, the Crysis guy would DESTROY Master Chief.
Snake: you must be a rookie *takes down master chief*
Dude the helghast would either kill him as soon as he landed or they would capture and him and use him for unknown purposes
all on the list so retarded and reads like it's been written by a freshman in highschool wow.. reading this makes me lose brain cells.. Less memorable character? wtf, Sev is suppose to be just another grunt soldier on the front lines, not a super-human-cyborg-high-jumpin g-alien-killing-typical-action- hero-with-uber-armor type of character.. and he's confusing multiplayer Map EDITOR with multiplayer Modes, loaded multipler modes? Does halo have Warzone mode? 5 modes in 1? I don't think so. and yes, you can customize servers in KZ2 down from what weapon and badge is allowed. Killzone 2 lacks a massive fanbase? okay, Halo 1, 2 and 3.. 3 Halo games, all FPS, all FPS fanbs.. Killzone, Kilzone:liberation(psp) and an upcoming one, that was 2 games previous, 2 different consoles, the PS2 and the PSP.. that's splitting up the fanbase from FPS on a console to top-down-tactical shooter on a handheld. Marketing.. okay word of mouth is the most effective marketing according to anybody who teaches Economics, it's small but effective and inexpensive.. I don't need a killzone 2 soda or a killzone 2 baby bottle, that's OVER-HYPING, when you over-hype you raise the expectation too high, higher than what the desigenrs expected it to be, and that's just damaging a game. See what happend to Halo 3? you got gamers split up, some loved it some hated it. SPlit screen? since when is split screen mandatory? It's a gimmick, and a rising trend, useless. - thats my opinion on it.
blog of fanboy MUCH??????? WHAT a loser 360 fanboys....
I first posted a comment on his site, laughing at the fact that the best he could come up with is attacking the advertisement and the multiplayer (which I pointed out is lauded by nearly every review as being excellent and in depth). I come back later and see that he deleted my comment, so I wrote something like: "So you're deleting all pro-Sony comments? Nice." I come back later again and see that he edited my comment so that now it just reads "Nice." So now I posted on his site: "Careful, this guy will delete any comment that is pro-Sony, but I'll post my comments on N4G.com where he can' t touch it. He cut out everything from my last post except the part that said 'Nice.'"
