GameWOPR takes a look at both KZ2 and SOCOM: Confrontation across several categories to see who comes out on top overall.
What happened to the gaming news? I mean.. at least we would have something interesting to discuss. Its kinda dead.
Confrontation is an Online only game, so obviously it's going to have more features/upside to the online portion of the comparison. Confrontation > Killzone 2 - Online Killzone 2 > Confrontation - Overall Value I'd give the edge to Killzone 2 online if they had a more robust ranking system, but it lacks depth. Ribbons, Medals and the Valor system can't pick up the slack for everything...
I own both of these games, I bought them both on release day, Killzone 2 a few days earlier. There should not even be a question as to which game is more superior because it is without a doubt Killzone 2. The way they released Socom Confrontation was absolutely ridiculous, just for that it loses automatically since it being a multiplayer only game, the condition it was released in was very, very poor and not even functional. Slant 6 only had multiplayer to focus on and they could not even do that right, originally the game lagged even when you were browsing through menus how ridiculous is that, but I the last time I played it seems that been corrected for the most part in a patch. I haven't bothered to play in a while so I don't know what it is like right now but Killzone 2's launch was phenomal. Servers worked great and it's fun as hell.
I know its a slow day, but LOL.
such a dumb article y would anybody compare them
it's comparing the online components.. which i reckon is fair enough
I Think socom is way better by far i haven't played Kz2 online so idk its Online play But Confrontation Started out as a One Day of Play Video Game but its Slowly progressing to be one of th best Ps3 shooters there is...........,But thts my Opinion
even though its ur opinion people will disagree with u......i like kz2 better
How can you compare online of one game to single player of another? KZ is more action packed and chaotic, socom is tactical. KZ is FPS and Socom is TPS. Can you really compare any further than your taste in game play?
You can't say Socom is better than Killzone 2 online because you haven't played KZ2 online. Your statement fails. I have Killzone 2. The online is great, but I still like CoD4 more. I still have to try SOCOM? Well, back to KZ2. :)
...the ears on one supermodel with the elbows of the other and then asking: "which one has better breasts?" Compare 3rd person shooters with other 3rd person shooters SOCOM:C. with MGO with Gears 2 with Warhawk would be much better.
can not compare NEXT!!!!
Im mean killzone 2 comes close to the intence feeling you get aiming down the sights in socom and the feeling of being out there on the field. but with respawn on and no party options you can get hammered over and over again until youre killzowned. in socom, 1 man can eliminate a entire team, count bullets and the freaking proxy chat is a dream come true. I play both games almost everyday but if you want my real opinion on favorites in my house socom is always going to be the premiere shooter. Now with private text for my clan it gives us the same information advantage just like in metal gear online. I cant even begin to describe how much in love i am with socom confrontation. MGO is next because of the different moves and postions you can take. In fact, im willing to reverse this article because i cant believe they just pitted me into a 3rd person vs. 1st person showdown. It really should be SOCOM VS MGO. who wrote this sh!t? Now i look stupid.
I like both of them alot... but its like comparing apples to oranges. I prefer the mature audience that plays socom and there is alot more strategy invovled in socom but The graphics and gameplay are great in killzone.
Killzone 2 > Confrontation - Online Killzone 2 > Confrontation - Overall Value Socom Confrontation = boring
they both wack ass f**K
haven't played either of them have you?
I tried playing socom but it was unplayable due to glitches, laggy online, etc you know. I also tried playing killzone 2 but it killed my ps3, it got the yellow light of death. so No I haven't played them
the death of your console doesn't mean the game sucks.
kilzone is way better 1 reason you can play offline
That is like comparing a BMW to a Hyundai. WTF!!! But now, which one is the BMW and which one is the Hyundai? Hmm...I'll keep my mouth shut to avoid rattling the fanboy's cages, but I think we all know. :)
Cheese Vs Butter...Er... ;-D Buy BOTH and enjoy BOTH(Erm the Games not the Cheese or Butter...unless you need Cheese or Butter...then buy all 4)
you are always full of WIN
you can't compare them... who approved this?
and 2 great games in there own right.. Hey now whats with all the socom hate.. That game is addicting and fun. Both great games but killzone 2 is the full package.. socom is just a great online game.. Bottom line
Killzone 2 is obviously better but damn I wish they would expand the ranking system
I recently put my review up for socom on user reviews (still waiting for approval (hint hint ;)) anyone that has read it knows that i love the game, but i also love killzone 2 - which i do think is the better game, online and off - but i would never directly compare them like this anyway.
Didnt click as this is just dumb.
Socom was my first socom game i though i would hate it but i loved it as my favourite game Killzone 2 was my 3000TH FPS i hated it
I might create a website and write an article that is titled "Ultra Beast vs. Robocop 2 (NES)". I know sometimes we have bad slow news day. But I didn't think we would have really bad news day.
Socom sucs online frame rate issues , lag lag lag , $hitty controll setup , hopefully zipper will make it right next time , Killzone 2 wins this round , hit disagree I don't care ! It is what is guys
Actually with all the issues that Socom had it's still a fun game to play. Killzone offers way more options but I do like the laid back feel of Socom.
"$hitty controll setup".....oh you're one of them Call Of Noobs players,ok gotcha.
what some of you fail to notice that he is comparing the multiplayer where we must spent time with regardless how different they are they are still both shooters while yall might conclude its like comparing BMW to a Hyundai ill say its completely stock BMW to a pimp out Hyundai my point been while while killzone is technically on another level socom outshine in some area like customizable characters and weapons(+ more variety) clan Insignia a party system and so forth
But I know which game is better, its just that I really need a headset,lol.
I like KZ better, but more budz play Socom, so I play more Socom
Socom in it's current state is a ton of lot more fun than KZ2 and its redundant die-spawn-die-spawn nade spam campfest quakefest. Pretty next gen graphics and horrible map and quake 4 mulitplayer.
I have not played the new Socom yet but if it's anything like the last few games i think it's better.Not that i think Killzone 2 sucks but i have a attachment to Socom that Killzone does not.
I want to love Killzone 2 but Socom is so fun!
Socom confrontation is a very good game that's why theres more people online on it daily then killzone 2 (check the websites) and it is much more realistic. maybe not graphically and the 3rd person view but the Game modes (Extraction), no respawn (but you can play respawn to but i dont like it cause it aint socom), killing people in 3 to 4 bullets and the community is what makes it better then killzone 2. The killzone 2 game play is also good and graphics is much more superior but it is respawn and gameplay which does not feel very realistic to me.
kill zone 2>>>>>>>s ocom...
kill zone 2>>>all library of fps in ps3. imo the online is sweet!!!
i love both games graphics killzone>socom sounds killzone<socom communications killzone<socom gameplay killzone<socom fun factor killzone=socom
Two totally different games. I like both games about the same. It doesn't matter though, because I'm a beast in K2 and on SC.
KZ2 had a much larger budget than the other one, so it's a lot more polished, and looks much better than Socom. However Confrontation is what it is: A low budget PSN filler game for the fans. Zipper's busy on MAG, so it will be a long time till we see a real Socom release. The game plays a lot like hidef Socom 2 with less polish(but better hit-detection.) I'm glad someone is putting this up there, because Socom has better online than Killzone 2, in fact in my oppinion it has better gameplay than any shooter on the market. Its Sad people read the reviews, and/or play respawn/32player games and get the wrong impression about this game (not to mention the ultra-hardcore fanbase makes everything a living hell to noobies.) And as a side note: Finally someone pointed out the chat in Socom is much clearer than anything I've heard out there, I don't see why other games have to use the crap quality that they all use.
Especially Killzone 2. Might explain the growing number of used copies I am seeing everywhere. Bargain bin here Killzone comes. Still waiting for someone to explain to me what happened to all those "record breaking Halo like preorders" Sony Defense Force was bragging about days before the game went on sale.
