Killzone 2 boasts amazing visuals, an intense campaign, and extraordinary online play that will keep you coming back for more.
PREPARE FOR BATTLE FOR TOMORROW WE DINEEE IN HELL-GHAST!!!
For many the fight has already begun, for once it is good to be in the EU for game releases!
I can't wait to get into that online...haters be damned. Kilzone 2 has come a long way from weak A.I. to mediocre gameplay to undisputed contender for fps of 2009
Hey Sonarus that's my line but you are right haters be damned
lol been saying haters be damned since last yr
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Can't wait!!! Good thing I have tomorrow off!!
Gamespot got killzowned damn.. I'll have to wait for my copy tomorrow :(
That was a great review. Tommorrow I'll finally get to play this beast for myself.
Even Gamespot is kicking Helg-arse!
because i wont be able to pick it up my Gamestop said that the game is sold out on pre orders alone so if a purchaser of the pre order doesnt get in at some point tomorrow it'll go to the next happy buyer. and i'll be having a late day so. I'll have to get it tonight and submerse myself in all it's glory as for Sonarus and Violater, heh I'm taking you both to school. so stand fast. ^^
Consider it done sir
10am can't get here soon enough!
9.0 seems like it should be the minimum score for KZ2 especially after being praised like that im just tired of this being called the undisputed technical achievement of this generation and then being docked 1-3 points for just having very solid and fun gameplay as opposed to revolutionising how we play the FPS genre. we'll see if damnation gets better scores for its incredibly innovative vertical gameplay /sarcasm. I mean doesn't perfection count for anything. Anyway cant wait till tomorrow though man its finally here KZ2 time!!!!!!!!
So many Americans are moaning that Europeans are getting it first, when 90% of the good games are made in Europe anyways.
I only bought my PS3 a couple of days ago and I already have 6 games for it and 8 blue rays. Damn you, Sony for making such a kickazz console. Thanks! =) Since I am a huge online console gamer on the 360, I hope that my online experience with the PS3 will be lacking too much immaturity and be as fun as XBL. So far, I don't have any gripes about my online experience with the PS3. Lets keep it that way. Lets game on! Hopefully I can be on KZ2 sometime this weekend if I am not playing Resistance 1 or 2. hehe
I pinch myself ...mere hours till I can pick it up. CA here.
but still a great score...
Wait huh? Gasp! Gamespot gave Killzone 2 a 9? The world is about to end. TGSI
It's good you say haters be damned. But we all know, some people's experience is some how diminished when people disagree with them. It's a damn fine looking game. You won't find me disagreeing with that. And if you think the game play is up to snuff, that's great too. But I don't think the actual gameplay is all that different from what we have seen before. I might be alright with that if the controls didn't feel awkward in my hands. But even this backhanded comment shouldn't change how much you like the game, no matter how backhanded it is.
this game is overrated it has amazing graphics only everything else is just pretty good otherwise all reviewers would be slamming 10's all over the place, Halo 3, Resisntance 2, and Gears 2 all scored higher on Gamespot and IGN.
Before you complain and disagreee read this >>> I already played the game and yes have some awesome graphics but i was asking my self ¿Why they make your character move and handle so slow? then it hit me. The game have great graphics but thats it. The rest its more of the same. Its another classic Action 1st Person Shooter You shoot, they shoot you back, you resist a good amount of bullets, you bleed and the screen start looking like the windshield of your car then a wiper clean the blood. Just the clasic already boring FPS experience. (Warning before you complain almost everybody of PS3 fans have been posting PRO KZ2 comments on none related KZ2 News) Now on the other hand Operation Flashpoint 2 and A.R.M.A. 2 are going to bring a lot of stuff to the FPS War game genre like anyother FPS title before. The other well known and respected 1st person shooters are going to be a thing of the past. But i know that you KZ2 fan boy are afraid that any of those game win the 1st person shooter of the year award. CoD MW2 can steal the thunder of KZ2 but not the one from Operation Flashpoint 2 & A.R.M.A. 2. By the way kids The US ARMY and UK Military Service use those games like a tool on their trainning. Thats how real it is. Like i have been saying before and only a wise person can understand this: Fear its going to be your ally on the battlefield in Operation Flashpoint 2 and A.R.M.A. 2. Its good to be a gamer and not a blinded brainwashed console fanboy.
You say you've already played the game yet 12 hours ago you wrote- "I am not getting a KZ2 copy and i am not a hater." Of course you're not getting it, because you don't have a PS3, as 7 days ago you wrote "yes in the future but not this year im going to buy me a PS3." Man that comment history tab sucks eh? Nearly every one of your comments bash the PS3 (or hype Operation Flashpoint2). I hate to break it to you but you are a "blinded brainwashed console fanboy." Another day, another new trolling account trying to knock KZ2 down a peg. What do you guys really hope to accomplish?
Ok buddy with a name like "XLiveGamer" you actually have the nerve to say anything about being brain washed. Any way this game is great all the way around. Great Physics Great Visuals Great gameplay Great Multiplayer All Fanboys be damned quit ruining the real games and posing as real gamers.
While XBOX 360 Fanboys are playing N4G.COM on their PCs tonight, I'll be playing Killzone 2. Now remember, if you don't own a copy of killzone 2, then you must not be a true gamer............
The only games he's rated higher than 9.0 are MGS4 (10) and Resident Evil 4 Wii (9.1)
the online is so much fun when i think of call of duty it feels kinda old and stuff but killzone 2 is so fresh and killing sum1 online and hearing te beep noise wen they die is awesome i can listen 2 that noise forever and it funny wen they r down and have 8 seconds and i jus shoot em in the head with a pistol im jus starting story mode and its gonna b awesome im gonna b away from all my games cuz killzone 2 is jus too much good in one game
Great score for a great game, yes I have the game and it is amazing!
This will indeed be a AAA title, all the major reviews are in and the game is over 90%.
finally lol, been wondering when GS would release their review.
They said they were waiting to test out the MP because all other reviewers only played MP for a few hours, since no official servers were up.
If a game is scoring 9's and 10's from 50 different sites, You know that it must be a kick a$$ game, no doubt
Same was true of Gta 4 yet many on n4g apparently didn't like it. On topic though, this game looks awesome and I can't wait to play it.
Ive seen the vids...It's a nice looking console shooter. But I'll ask a question I've been asking with no replies so far. How is it setting a new bar in fps gaming? Surely your answer won't be "it looks purty and you can hide behind stuff" right? I want to love this game like the rest of you and buy a ps3 for it and my new hdtv. But it just looks like another fps shooter to me. This is the same reason I never bought Halo. It really set no bar in fps gaming as I was online gaming on the pc long before Halo 1 was released.
I never termed GTAIV/Halo 3 as garbage.....nice spin though. What ever makes you sleep better at night. Anyhow....enjoy the game. If I can grab a rental copy, I will see you all online. @evrfighter Be careful with that radical thinking. I poised a similiar question...and stated that between COD4/Halo3/Gears2 that the demo did not show me enough to make me feel like I needed to add KZ to my collection. And that is not because KZ 2 is bad....its just a matter of it being released later than the other titles, and me feeling like it did not separate itself enough to warrant me dropping $50 on it.
Just buy it or rent it. I bought it at a mom and pops in nyc yesterday that broker the street date and let me tell you, after you get pass the initial learning curve with the controls this game is on point. The cover system is great and must be used to survive. While it feels a bit like COD4 (Probably because the default weapon) the gameplay is nothing like those three games you mentioned. The online is gansta also. Graphics don't change at all for the online and the badge system, ribbon system and the ranking system is much deeper than other fps game, it's almost like a fps RPG! Really on point game! Give it a try instead of doubter and you will find a beast of a game! I forgot to mention the offline and online bots! You won't even tell if they are human or not. Add me too anyone: PSN: NYCREDUDE
Yeah...I am going to try and rent it today. I hate that I missed the beta...cause multiplayer is what I am really interested in, and wanted to try out. I have started limiting my game purchases to games that have great online components...rather than buying games that I can just rent a beat in a day, that have little to no replay value.
And from non other than Gamespot. Maybe the are turning a new leaf, yo.
Anyone surprised at the high quality Ps3 titles Sony have been releasing?Flower,Killzone 2,LittleBigPlanet,etc etc. It's beautiful being a Ps3 owner.So beautiful.
My friend is a manager at gamestop. Just got mine!!! Yes!
lol good for you the game is being sold here in middel east from 2 weeks
gears 2 9.0 fallout 3 9.0 kill zone 2 9.0 sounds great!
Bow down before Kilzone 2.
Hmm it looks like the recent firings due to the global recession at gamespot and 1up has worked for the better and has rid these websites from the biased jerks. Either that or they where feeling the heat of actually doing the game justice or face the herd of satisfied killzone2 owners. But to be honest it's nice that everyone can enjoy this masterpiece. See you all on the battle field soon.
10/10!!! ;-P (F-The internet) Main game is AMAZING!!! ;-P On-line was AMAZING!!! ;-P (I'm CR*P tho!!!!) ;-D +I did not have 1 problem on-line to, which was cool;) The game makes you want to jump into your T.V!!! ;-D It looks that good!!! + The Level with Sandstorms/Wind(On-line/or with Bots)is AMAZING!!! ;-P Not tried all of them yet tho.
Indeed, they all seem to be great title and received the same score at Gamespot. However at Metacritic, Gears 2 and Fallout 3 are both ranked at 93%, whereas Killzone 2 is at 91%. Exclusive first bunch of review waves included.
LOL ChaosAtom, you must think that 9.0 actually means 10.0. But you see, its not, so although it got a great score its not the groundbreaking 10 you thought it was gonna be. Halo 3, Gears 2, even Resistance 2 all scored higher. Get over it, this game is great but hell it isnt that great.
Great score. Can't wait till tomorrow baby. Time to go to Helghan for my March Break vacation.
Got it this morning been playing it all day and it is the best looking game on any console and the enemy ai is so good.. add me if u need some more mate to go on warzone - PSN dino645.
I am going to love the NeoCrisis review, several years later, down the line. :-D!
That's it? No controversial score after all that not releasing the review until [insert reason] drama? Hmmm times could very well be changing...
Awesome, a score it deserves.
great score.... "awaits the sh*t storm"
give it a few minutes...if you listen really hard you can hear why dis typing up a sh1tstorm
I'll start a mini-sh!t stormlet. I don't mind a score of "9", but i watched the video and he raved ("buy.this.game."). I wish he mentioned the flaws (slim story doesn't count, since he immediately follows that comment by saying that it's not missed). Maybe the lack of co-op?
I expected no less than a 9 from Gamespot for KZ2. If they gave Resistance 2 a 9, I really don't see how they could give KZ2 anything less when it's on a whole different level in terms of FPS. KZ2 FTW!!! Thank You Guerrilla for such an awesome game!
I have both games, and I really don't think they're comparable AT ALL. The only similarities are that you play in the first-person perspective and you shoot guns. Other than that, they're COMPLETELY DIFFERENT games, and as such it's completely fair for someone to prefer one game over the other: neither is the better game, they're not even striving to provide nearly the same kind of gameplay experience. That's why Sony funded both projects, because they corner two different aspects of the action genre. Killzone 2 is a slower-paced, tactical, heavy game with heightened realism and a focus on competitive multiplayer. Resistance 2 is a fast-paced, arcade-style, run-n-gun game with a very deep focus on class-based co-op online, and very cooperative-reliant competitive multiplayer modes, as well. In terms of sheer content, it's hard to top Resistance 2: I mean, Killzone 2 doesn't contain a single feature that even comes close to what Resistance 2's co-op does. I think any PS3 owner with an interest in FPS and action games should have both games in their library (this last sentence is my opinion, but the rest is pretty objective, I think)
Gamespot got KILLZOWNED!! Muhahaha!!!
More like halowars got killzoned lol.
Killzone = 9 Halo 3 = 9.5 HALOWNED!!!!
From Gamespot that is. For me the wait is only 4 hours and 39 minutes away. Like Shang Tsung said in the original Mortal Kombat film: "IT HAS BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!"
lucky bastard ): i gotta wait till 10 in the morning
lucky bastard ): i gotta wait till MIDNIGHT Oh, I'll be RECEIVING my copy at ten in the morning, I just won't be able to play until later than night, when everyone else in my house is finally unconscious. (Be it by will or my blunt force, in this particular case!)
Goddamn I picked up my copy today, played for quite some ammount (tho I have been looking at the graphics more instead of focussing on the action lol) and after 2 hours of playtime I'm only at 15%! And at some point I did rush things a bit. Nice job GG... nice job! \o/ THIS GAME IS A FREAKING WARZONE!! :D
playing it right now.....ITS AMAZING
Details :O ;D
Same here. I have two more mission left before I star playing online. I will not sleep tonight.
The official gamespot score for Killzone 2 actually popped up on their playstation newsletter earlier today. Those of you that have gamespot accounts and are subscribed can confirm this by checking your e-mails. So I really wasn't surprised when I saw their review tonight, lol. Anyway, that pretty much seals the deal for me. Gamespot was the last major site/critic I was waiting to hear on. (though I guess I would've gotten the game regardless considering the excellent reviews from other respectable sources) See you guys online tomorrow!
good review from gamespot, i really enjoyed that video. especially the end, Nail Gun FTW
i already have the game and played only multiplayer! the maps are very coloufull, i thoght that the game would b greyish only... very fun game! its hard to get used to at the start, but u'll get it after a while
"i thoght that the game would b greyish only... " thats what happens when you listen to fanboys
