very informative, nice to see why voice chat is implemented that way. i think its pretty cool, i never realized it until now, that's why squads are important.

Tee7soo5562d ago

but i really think call of duty 4 mp is better than Killzone 2 mp ..

ThatCanadianGuy5562d ago

I agree with you about 50/50 on that.

The controls,graphics,gameplay all go to killzone 2 for the win.
(in my opinion)

But i like the way COD does the prestige thing.It's only been 4-5 days and im max rank with at least 80% of the stuff unlocked.

Other then clan battles..there's not much point to keep playing..

rockleex5562d ago (Edited 5562d ago )

is how they did Search and Destroy, one death per round.

But in order for Killzone 2 to do that and still give the game a nice flow, they gotta release smaller maps. Search and Destroy is not as intimate when there's 32 players on a big as hell map with infinite spawns.

Or they could just limit the huge maps to a smaller portion for Search and Destroy-only games, and also limit the amount of players.

Kleptic5561d ago

well I totally disagree with CoD being remotely better...perks that reward you for sucking (martyrdom), endless grenade spamming, LMG sniping, encouragement of camping, etc...all wore me down on cod 4...

as far as the rank system...and prestige being better...I only looked at that as a gimmick anyway...just resetting everything only to have a new symbol next to your name is complete trash imo compared to the honor ranks of killzone 2...

the honor ranks are what give the game max replay value...because you can play a lot one week and do great, get the 1% rank for 1 week...then slack off and lose it the next...its a completely dynamic ranking system in that regard...you do not keep your rank unless you stay on top of it...which is something no other shooter rank system has ever tried...

as far as the general only taking like 10 hours...I agree, that is a little disappointing...in the beta they did mention maybe eventually putting some higher ranks, that do not unlock anything, for landmarks like 10k points, or 25k, etc...can't say I would really care about that, as the honor ranks have me hooked...

but I agree with everything else about gameplay, controls, visuals...killzone 2 takes those easily for me...

GG needs to keep this up and support the game as much as possible especially to the ones that support them when buying the game. Glad to read that there making every concious effort to perfect a game that to me is already outstanding. All i can say is god speed on releasing the patches and content cuz not everyone is as patient as me.

Dazel5562d ago

I'd say KZ has the edge as it host more players and Warzone is, imo, the best online mode ever but there's not much in it.

Once the issues are fixed it'll be near perfect. Just a shame about the voice coms on PSN, not a patch on the 360.

DJ5562d ago

I still tell people Halo 2's multiplayer is better than Resistance, and that gets me some crazy disagrees as well.

Nonsense 4 Gamers5561d ago

You're getting disagrees because people DISAGREE with your opinion! Why do you think the button titled DISAGREE?!

PlayStation 3 Games That Desperately Need a PS5 Remaster

The PlayStation 3 may not have been the strongest generation for Sony, but there were still some diamonds in the rough that deserve a revisit as PS5 remasters.

Even if they could just remaster and put on PSVR2, some would still look great as VR titles and could do a whole lot to bolster the headset w these exclusives! I'd imagine the investment of reworking these titles into VR would be way less than building new games from the ground up, and they could be amazing experiences, and VR often makes flat games feel fresh again. The Resistance and Killzone games are particularly what I want to see!!

I played killzone 3 in 3d and it really changed the game per being immersive.
In vr, that would be even more awesome.

darthv7277d ago

Funny you mention that... my son wanted to play some PS3 games in 3d on my PS tv and he was blown away by how good KZ3 was. It really was a great addition to the game. Im surprised there have not been more 3d games from that era being ported to the PSVR/VR2.

Profchaos77d ago (Edited 77d ago )

Killzone trilogy in VR would be amazing bonus points if they offer shadow fall.

There was a psvr1 Killzone project that supermassive was working on at one stage which wasn't up to scratch and Sony brand it back in house I was hoping we would see that on psvr2 eventually.

Personally I'd love to see some more love or acknowledgement of psvr2 from Sony in general it was a expensive headset and Sony barely acknowledge it's existence

seanpitt2377d ago

The amount of work needed to remaster these games wouldn't be beneficial on a financial and business sense.. MGS4 would probably be the best bet as it would need the least amount of work!

Iceball200078d ago

YEAAASSSSS! I miss this franchise and wanna play it so bad again.

Father__Merrin78d ago

The time is perfect for a resistance fall of man game campaign coop multiplayer

InUrFoxHole78d ago

The resistance series is str8 trash to me. Socom 3 I would welcome. Or killzone MP.

Marcus Fenix78d ago

A Resistance reboot will be awesome

Michiel198978d ago

That's what Bungie should make, Ill keep saying it until it happens

1Victor78d ago (Edited 78d ago )

Resistance was ok but Warhawk and Starhawk was better and kept me coming back for almost a decade of fun and petty revenge on the loud mouth unskilled players 🤣
Edit I loved capture the flag dropping the pot on the flag carrier was extremely satisfying as well as transforming your plane in bot form and stumping them to death 😱

Resistance was the best co-op fps I ever played after L4D2
