Rated 7 out of 10 by antonio seijo ok game
in my opinion, this was an ok game, the storyline was good, but not as deep as i expected, the single player campaign is long and challenging, the controls were easy to get used too,the sound was great even though the helgahst shout "reloading" in a hilarious way in the middle of combat, there is not much to interact with throughout the game, besides picking up guns and hitting people with your gun, there is no use for an action button, and the gun selection is not that impressive, you can choose from either isa weapons or helgahst weapons and even then you have your basic weapons, assault rifles, shotguns, pistols, snipers, and grenade launchers, the multiplayer is fun, you can play with a friend or by yourself offline, or go online if you have the network adapter, but even though i personally have never been online, the offline lags and does not live up to a full potential, but it keeps track of your stats of the games you have played, which i thought was cool, all together this game was better than average but could have done better, so i give it a 7 out of 10
Rated 10 out of 10 by d0rkzero Best PS2 Game Ever!!
Killzone is by far the best game I have played on the PS2. The story is excellent, keeping you hooked until the end. The graphics are great (at least they are for its time). The game is very long, which just means more to enjoy. The game is challenging throughout, but the difficulty curve flows well. The controls are easy to master and you won't have any problems after the first level. I bought this game because I had played the PSP version and I wanted a better understanding of the story. I was very satisfied with this purchase. The story is definitely Killzone's strongest aspect, with likable characters and an interesting take on war. The countless firefights are never the same, so the game never gets boring. I enjoyed playing Killzone and would highly recommend you buy this game.

I've played this game, and sold it. Looking back, that was a horrible idea! Watching just the CGI intro, just that, made me want to buy this game. That scene was awesome! The game is perfect for any fan of war games! The campain story is good, and pretty lengthy. Plenty of guns to choose from the diverse maps you'll be on. And one of the best things, is that you can adjust the controlls. Not like "Southpaw?" adjust, but like.... each sperate button is open to change. As good as the campain is, I also am quite fond of the offline "multiplayer". You can battle offline bots on teams up to eight men!(I think it's eight, maybe seven or nine...). After deciding to get a mandolin rather than an XBOX360, I began to look into PS2 games again. So one of the FIRST games on the list I am going to buy, is this again. This and the online adapter. If the campain, AND offline battles are this good? Then the online combat HAS to be worth it. As I remember, the game was fun, but also very, very, challanging. Also, the faded colors and worn-out conditions of the battle ground add to the theme very nicely. The bottom lineis, it's got everything someone could want from a PS2 shooter. I'm buying it AGAIN. And if you haven't bought it before, than I highly recommend it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by AnonymouslyConfused Packed with enough content to stay busy.
I have to say Killzone is a pretty good game. It has enough content packed in the game to keep you busy for weeks or months. The campaign is decent and has good length to it. But, occasionally the game will freeze up in spots but its just a mere second here and there. The weapon selection is pretty good also. I found the best part of the campaign was the story. When I find the story good or interesting the developers had to do something right because most in game stories turn me off. The CGI scenes are excellent ! The online is still up and running in 2009 ! That part of the game was a surprise to me as I am 5 years later to the party with this one. Also all of the online modes and match types you can play offline as what you would see in games like Perfect Dark, Timesplitters 2 where you can set up your bots, weapon types, maps and rules. Overall if they do cancel the online someday you can still play it offline against bots so this game is well worth picking up. The graphics are really pushing the PS2 hardware even though it was initially released years ago. The guns look fantastic. Character models of your enemies move kind awkward but that gives you that much more of a reason to mow em down with your guns. Bottom line is if you want a good game for your ps2 this is easily a good game to pick up. It falls short in some areas but those portions of the game are easy to look past.
Rated 6 out of 10 by gamefan4564 probably the least greatest shooter I'v played
I wanted to try this series out, and I knew the ps3 games got better reviews than this game, but I can at least see why this didn't get as many good reviews. you're running through trenches and you have to shoot all enemies from a distance as they come to you. that's not very exciting. the graphics aren't that great either. but, since the ps3 versions got better reviews, I will check them out. just don't buy this
Rated 10 out of 10 by blademaster1121 Good for its time era
this game was hard for me to find and i wanted it so badly... killzone is really fun but the only thing i didnt like about it was that u cant really change the analog sinsitivity so when you aim to shoot its easy to over turn and miss ur target which made me alittle mad and frestrated but overall really fun... i want to get a ps3 to play the 2nd and 3rd killzone
Rated 9 out of 10 by MKDante Killzone is great for some reasons
One its challenge. Two guns are bad ACE. 3 guns have recoil which is cool maybe pain in the ace to some players at first but I think its cool. Well personally number favorite shooter on the PS2. I think it's still fun play on HD TV 1080dpi
Rated 6 out of 10 by GamecubeGamer5 Not what I expected.
This was one of my first Ps2 games, ive heard good things about the Killzone series but this was just dissapointing. Bad graphics, bad sound, and I found shooting in this game to be pretty hard. I would not reccomend this to anyone.
Rated 2 out of 10 by jdmhighs Not as good as i thought.
Really bad gameplay, and really bad sound. The cutscenes were pretty cool though. and the graphics were decent for the ps2. Overall, bad game. Its not worth twelve dollars, maybe five. i dont reccommend this game to anyone.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Halo4 Wowzers!
This is how FPS's should be made, 20 hour campaign, bots and an online multi-player that still 7 years later has people hooked. This game is better than Killzone 3 and just as good as Killzone 2.
