Killzone 2: A PS3 Breakthrough
For the past two years or so many owners of the PlayStation 3 have wondered "was it really worth buying this system?" With the release of Killzone 2 the answer is simple: yes. After recently giving up on the Xbox 360 and trusting myself in the hands of Sony's PlayStation 3, I began to crave for an FPS game. This game blows every other FPS game out of the water and then some. Without a doubt, Killzone 2 is one of the best PlayStation 3 exclusives to date. First of all, the graphics in Killzone 2 are beyond beautiful. The game designers went to all ends to make an atmosphere where you felt as if you were actually on a battlefield. The game is dark, bullet holes glow as your fire hits the cover the enemy is behind, dust picks up if dropships filled with reinforcements fly in, and lightning pierces the sky ominously. That's just a taste of what the visual aspect of Killzone 2 has to offer. Killzone 2 doesn't rewrite the FPS genre, but it enhances everything that gamers love in a good FPS. If you're looking for a FPS campaign with non-stop action, blood, untamed violence, explosions going off everywhere, and last, but not least, challenging, Killzone 2 is the game for you. The only downside to the Killzone 2 campaign is that the story isn't anything special. However it's just good enough to keep you moving forward. Another downside is the responsiveness of the controls, but if you put up the sensitivity a bit in the options, it's easily solved. However, the most notable part of this PlayStation 3 title is the multiplayer. I've played dozens of games over Xbox Live, and the only game I've ever played over the PSN was Socom. I have never lagged once while playing this over PSN, the game loads quickly, and there are tons of people playing. The game designers made a leveling and class system so that you can specialize in certain areas, but only if you play and do well enough to rank up. This gives you a reason to keep diving back into the online battlefield. The game types flow into each other, for the first five minutes you play a "kill the other team" round, followed instantly by a capture the propaganda round, then a defend a territory round, an assassination round, and even a demolition round where you get to blow things up. This makes the game even better because you don't have to stop to switch the game type and it makes things interesting. You may be bad at one kind of game type but five minutes later the game is more focused on what you're good at. The levels are designed so that you have to work together as a team, talk to each other, and use tactics to come out on top. Killzone 2 focuses heavily on teamwork, but it's also possible to run off and fight on your own (that may end badly). Killzone 2's online experience is one of the most intense, fun, and rewarding competitive online game I've played. If you have a PlayStation 3, without a doubt buy this game, you won't regret it. If you don't have a PlayStation 3, try it out if you can and you can see why everyone is calling Killzone 2 one of the "best first person shooters ever". With any luck this is the first of many fantastic PS3 exclusives, good work SONY keep it up.
This game gives lots of hours of fun, the Single player mission is nearly short but the online play is fantastic, great graphics, voice acting and action.
Best Killzone out there!
Been a fan of Killzone since the first Killzone back in 2005. If you're just now wanting to try Killzone, Killzone 2 is where to start.
Not a very good game
This game was alright, not the best. i traded it in after the first day! I think it is sort of boring in parts.
I like this game a lot, i just didnt like the controls at first, but i fixed em to my liking. The only thing i dont like about this game is the lack of guns.
Oldie but goodie
This is a great game with lots of replay value. Even on the easiest setting this game can be a challange. The graphics are good, I love the way the weapons sound when they are fired, and the story is compelling. I'm not a big online gamer, but I wish that the online still worked, but that alone should not keep you from trying this game. I suggest you pick up Killzone 3 as well, because both are great.
The best, most intense FPS made for the Ps3
KIllzone 2 beats halo, CoD, battlefield, and im obsessed with battlefield, but killzone beats any FPS out there, it is a perfect challenge, i do not advise for little children, very intense, blood, and strong language, but it is amazing, i recomend this for any gamer with FPS experiance, controls are differant takes time to get used to.
GOT ME HOOKED!
THIS GAME WAS SO GROUND BREAKING I COULD SPIT! ME AND MY [MbN] BUDDIES DOMINATED THE BOARDS AND HAD LOADS OF LAUGHS DOING IT. THIS GAME WAS AT THE TOP WHEN IT WAS IN ITS PRIME!
Amazing shooter with a great storyline!
I have played many first person shooters, the games have always been fun but i have never found a First person shooter with a really good storyline other than Half Life, Killzone 2 has a great storyline... the gameplay is great, the multiplayer is fun, and the offline bot combat training is great. Killzone 2 is a very fun shooter anyone will love!
