We expect that a significant number of Killzone 2's purchasers will not be at all disappointed in the game, writes Roger Hargreaves.
No single game will decide a winner. BUT, The bombardment of killer exclusives should. Only time will tell. I dont care who sells more, I just want games. kthx.
Yup! One game only wont save something that doesnt need to be saved in the first place! As long as my PS3 gives me games that I can only find on it, I´ll be happy! I might buy a X360 later down the road but right now, with this economy balance, I´ll stick with the one that gives me more advantages and where the games I wanna play are! Right now thats the PS3! By summer time, with more time available and some savings I might buy a X360 for the Jrpgs. Those are the ones I miss the most on my PS3.
...Riiight. Far from it. As much as third party companies are going multi-plat, now more than ever, is when bigger and badder exclusives are what counts most, especially for the PS3.
shame on british gaming media edge/boomtown/teletext are just shame of gaming media
again with this sh*t when did the ps3 ever need saving and a bigger question saving from what?????please he nuff with all the ps3 sony hate all he did there is say in a nice way instead of bashing it to death lol .oh and here's a video compliments of the ps3.. http://www.gametrailers.com...
The importance of exclusives only rises. Don't they understand? Example: As fast food restaurants become more widespread, the offerings of a regular restaurant only becomes more important.
here is the prevailation of jaded gamers that make up not only the contributors but the fans of teletexts gamecentral. like Edge before it,it is the most predictable of gaming news sources. These two outlets are the nemesis of the new video gaming reality. Retro to the extreme they remind me of the Dad figure complaining that "things aint as good as they were in my day"! They harbor many valid and intelligent points regarding this our most loved hobby yet always put there despairing negative spin on anything that doesnt fit into theyre misplaced ludite sensibilities. On point the writer states as have many that Killzone does nothing new within the genre while ignoring the cover system that is completely new in its application and the intricacies of the multiplayer. I stopped reading teletext and Edge as it made me sad to be a gamer in this modern age,...sad that i cared for the ramblings of the last gens appologists/champions.
You know what? you're spot on with your comment, bubbles for you
Your comment is really the Truth. I share your views.
Well put: "They harbor many valid and intelligent points regarding this our most loved hobby yet always put there despairing negative spin on anything that doesnt fit into theyre misplaced ludite sensibilities." Fortunately, their web of truth is not as impenetrable as they hope it to be.
Some people are to stubborn to accept new things.
agreed solidworm well said man
Perhaps it is your misplaced sensibilities that are the issue here. A technical achievement does not equal fun. That is what gaming is about. FUN! Too many "graphics whores" around these days.
Who killed game journalism?
teletext do gaming journalism now?
that site is a serious joke 7/10 for KZ2 but 10/10 for halo 3?
Teletext is just another unknown site with unprofessional journalists lauding baseless opinions. 360 fanatics are having to dig very deep in the trash to find any coherent negative opinion about Killzone 2. What proof did this 'author' serve to prove his point? None. So let me get this strait... IGN, Gamepro, Game Trailers, X-Play, all agree this is a phenomenal game and some faceless known know it all gives a negative opinion of KZ2 and suddenly it is more important to 360 fanatics.
You have no idea what you're talking about. Stop being so insular and inward thinking, and do a little research before you post.
the site gave KZ2 7/10 soooo much hate from British media KZ2 still has a 91% average at meta
does it make where I am from? Stupid.
"report as retarded" button. I guess iraqmilner is lucky for this missing feature of this site...
What are you trying to imply, that all the British gaming media is deliberately giving bad reviews to a Dutch made game, on a Japanese made console. I'm sorry I just don't get your reasoning.
get ur reasoning??????? KZ2 got lowest scores from EDGE and TELETALK --sites which are UK based even Viva pinata and other crap games got better scores than Kizzy from those sites Yep they gave halo 3/gears 2 9 and 10 too so we dont need reasoning KZ2 still has a 90% + average at gamestats/meta/n4g meta
Halo 3 might not have the same resolution as Killzone 2 but I still think its funner. I'm not really into the realistic first person shooters though. And I'm not trying to start a flame battle with you.
no halo 3 is dogsheet KZ2 is the best fps of this gen
I agree with this article in all aspects, but I really think GoW 3 will be a killer app. What makes people want to buy a ps3 for a game is if the game was good on ps2. MGS had a big fanbase, and because of this, it was a killer app, it sold a lot of consoles. Killzone 2, not so much. GG made its name on the ps3, and a little on the psp. GOW3 will be a huge killer app, because like MGS, has a huge fanbase with 2 great ps2 games, and an awesome ps3 game.
Get your fact's straight pal. I am not, nor have I ever been a "Bot" And seriously, get your fact's right, there have been plenty of UK based sites and magazine's that have given Killzone 2 high scores, just as I'm sure there are US based sites and magazine's that have given it lower scores. And if you took the time to read the article, you will see that it in-fact praises Sony, so how does that fit in with your conspiracy theory. Oh and PS, this is an article about the games industry, not a review of Killzone 2. I thought I would point that out to you as you seem to have some difficulty understanding this. PPS, if you can't understand the sentence "get your reasoning", then you're confirming my rapidly forming opinion of you.
I don't see how Halo is dog s***. It is actually really fun and it doesn't take itself too seriously. I haven't played the Killzone 2 multiplayer so I really can't comment on it but I have feeling that I would like Halo's multiplayer better. The crazy s*** that happens in Halo's multiplayer is just plain awesome.
But why do xbots keep talking about Halo as if it is the end all, be all of games. I mean constantly going on and on about Halo this and Halo that. Who cares for fvcks sake, it is an old game with barely HD graphics, which can be considered last gen compared to today's graphics. Sure it was great when it came out but that was yesteryears, and a lifetime in this business. Lets move on already and talk about the future, instead of hanging on to the past.
