I didn't think it was going to be anything at all like the trailer. I've learned through years of media consumption that trailers mean absolutely nothing in the long run.

I learned my lesson from the Ps3 'tech demo's" in 2005

Something tells me you don't have a PS3.

Maybe It's me...

Sony delivered on those tech demos for the most part.

Great job of bringing fanboyism into a nuetral story.

Hope your mother is proud.

I've learned my lesson from all the Halo trailers that have come out. Game always turns out to be the same crap, with a boring campaign.

Philoctetes2880d ago

Agreed. I still remember how I saw that tech demo for Killzone 2, and then when the actual game came out it was . . . wait, what was your point again?

wasn't that a neutral story?

Something tells me you only own an XBOX 360.

No Killzone 2 really doesn't play like in the trailer...

Killzone 2 has better fire effects some better helghast animations and better ai.

In the 2005 trailer the helghasts look like boring mindless enemies in killzone 2 they are sneaky devious little bastards.

Maybe you haven't player Killzone 2 I can't see how you could say that the 2005 trailer seemed to have better gameplay than KZ2.

It was miles worst.

Oh and...

eesh. Didn't mean to start a war over this. I'm still looking forward to the game as the rest of it sounds interesting.

Gungnir2880d ago

Even though the two are totally different, it sounds like might still be fun to play.

B00kman2880d ago

Hey! At least we can look back and enjoy the trailer, right.... right? Great article

Sadie21002880d ago

Yeah, I agree. Just enjoy the trailer separately from the game, and it's win-win.

Wizziokid2880d ago

I'll judge for myself when I see some gameplay

joystiq gave the game praise in there article
