MSN: Killzone 2 Review

This all makes for a very complete package, delivering just the triple-A title the PS3 needed. Though derivative in parts, Killzone 2 wisely draws on the best elements of the shooter genre to deliver its own blend of militaristic sci-fi action and stunning visuals.

LOL even the competitions publication can't downplay this master piece. Hey does anyone know how i can fix my ps3? I have an original 60gig launch console but i just got the YLOD(yellow light of death) and i refuses to turn on.

Please if anyone has a clue about a fix please let me know. Man i have the worst luck in the world. Just when i bought killzone2 the darn ps3 dies. It is the worst feling knowing everyone else is enjoying this masterpiece while i'm bored sh!tless.

Send in your ps3, they will replace the hard drive with your data. It seems to only happen with 60gb's now a days.

HDDVD183521d ago

4/5 rather than 5/5

too bad even they couldnt find any fault

but who cares?

Try and replce your HDD, it may fix it.

SAiOSiN3521d ago

lol same with my buddy. his ps3 stopped reading disks. will sony fix it for free?

marichuu3521d ago

4/5 does not mean masterpiece :>

Would make more sense if it was posted under a perfect score review.

InfectedDK3520d ago

They had only 2 choices anyway: 4/5 or 5/5..
Anything else would look like a jealous child without a PS3.
Ofcourse it doesnt deserve a 3/5 everyone knows.
Thanks for the review but it doesnt mean more than the other reviews although it is Microsoft :)

uie4rhig3520d ago (Edited 3520d ago )

they'll arrange for a replacement, tho it'll take a while coz its the 60GB and they dont make that anymore.. they replaced mine for free outside the warranty here in the UK :)

good luck ;)

and about the article.. they say that they don't like the "imperfect cover system".. i find it the best cover system for an FPS game..

marichuu3520d ago

I have to admit that I didn't bother using the cover system in the demo... I never used the lean right/left in other FPS games... it feels better to run out, shoot, run back.

Things might change for me next week though... if my copy of the game gets here, that is x.x

Ryangp3520d ago

That happened to me about 6 months back, I tried everything, in the end i just had to send it back. I recommend you do the same and don't ruin the warranty.

Zephyrus_8083520d ago

If you call Sony, they'll send you a replacement. I think you get a choice of refurbished 60GB or the new 80GB model.

uie4rhig3520d ago

yeah same here, in the demo i didn't cover too much, however, when you have the full game, and you play on the highest possible difficulty (the third one.. cant remember what its called) you're gonna need it a lot.. tbh, Killzone 2 is the first game where i have had trouble finishing on the highest possible difficulty..

MS............................ .......n

DominusRebellis3520d ago

I finally found something that sucks about K2. I was playing online but had to quit the match and all the points that I gained throughout the match didn't count at all because I didn't finish until our faction won or lost. If I play for 30minutes and get 40 points I expect them to add to my experience, even if I do leave the game early!

Er PS3 has LOADS of Triple-A GAMES!!!thank you very much!!! ;)

10/10!!! ;-P

TheMART3521d ago

Nope, it doesn't have loads of triple AAA exclusive games rated on or over 9 out of 10

LBP is there with 9.5 out of 10
Then there is the MGS4 BluRay movie with 9.4 out of 10

and KZ2 is now the first real shooter experience with 9.1 out of 10

It needed it hard, with the 360 having shooters Gears 1 with 9.4 out of 10, Halo 3 with 9.4 out of 10 and Gears 2 with 9.3 out of 10.

digger183520d ago (Edited 3520d ago )

Mart, just shows how crap metacritic is. There is no way on Gods earth Halo 3 is worth over an 8 on metacritic, it was a way over hyped piece of sh*t. It seems alot of review sites overrate Xbox 360 games and nitpick PS3 games.

Plus you calling MGS4 just a Blu-Ray movie, well it has more gameplay hours (around 20 hours) than both Gear 1 & 2 put together.

Metacritic is massively flawed and only a fu*king fanboy can't see that.

Stop using it as your bible.

WTF is this noname website???

HDDVD183521d ago


yea this is kinda no name since its MS and this website isnt counted at meta

somekindofmike3520d ago (Edited 3520d ago )

"what is this noname website"

That was a damn funny comment!

SAiOSiN3521d ago

i don't think a microsoft site should review the game. well, anyway good score. i guess every1 likes it though.

Simon_Brezhnev3521d ago

yeah i agree with u even though he gave it a good score he was still sarcastic with it "triple-A title the PS3 needed"

somekindofmike3521d ago

There is no reason why a MS site shouldn't review a PS3 game, as long as they are professional about it then it is fair enough.

as for some people saying 4/5 is not good enough, I think it's a fair score, Killzone 2 looks awesome, and has a awesome multiplayer, but the single player while good, could of been better. (bit like COD4 really!)

My personal preference is to have an awesome single player experience too! in fact I'd prefer an awesome single player shooter of epic proportions over a multiplayer one anyday, but if I was being greedy i'd have both :)

Magic_The_Celt3521d ago

Did microsoft just review Killzone 2?............................ .

BigPappaPump3521d ago
