There was a lot of controversy surrounding Killzone 2 long before it even launched. With fanboys on both sides using it as evidence that their system was better, Killzone 2 found itself the target of ridicule for an E3 trailer that wasn't actually gameplay footage. Now that the game is actually out for everyone to play, the gossip can finally come to an end. It is quite evident that Killzone 2 has lived up to expectations, both visually and in terms of gameplay.
Six years after the words "Halo killer" got printed across gaming media everywhere, Sony can finally say that they have delivered a shooter to be reckoned with. Video games, like all forms of media, are about taste. Killzone 2 leaves a good taste in your mouth. Not everyone will like it, but most people that try it will find it irresistible.
