Two years after the Helghast assault on Vekta, the ISA is bringing the fight to the enemy's home world of Helghan.
Does this live up to the hype? Yes. Does this game deliver on all fronts? Yes. Is it fun? Oh hell yes.
Killzone 2 tells the story of Alpha squad, who are tasked with taking down Visari, who is a Helghast leader. The game opens up with a speech of him and clips of war-time chaos. The intro is simply perfect, what else can I say? You play as a soldier named Sev, who is part of Alpha squad. You hit the Planet Helgan in a beach invasion, and the game begins.
The first thing you will notice is the Graphics. They are STUNNING. This shows amazing textures, lighting, and animations, all with a little to no lag. Who knew war could look so beautiful?
The sound design is another strong point. Men are dying around you, bullets are hitting your cover, the Helghast and screaming orders to each other. Its simply a treat for the ears.
