Edge Magazine Gets Edged Out With Killzone 2 Review for PS3

100°
303w ago - Edge was always a magazine I like reading no matter what kind of reviews they dish out, their perspectives are so well written that it's pretty easy to negate everything else that they offer.

Did their Killzone 2 review push everyone against them, although I do not quite agree with the them, since they have given both Gears of War 2 and Halo 3 a 9 and 10 respectively.

The point is not about justification in an opinion but maintaining a minimum level of consistency and fairness with all their reviews which is a rather impossible task to achieve with the enormous amount of revenues flowing from one publication to another.





Videogame companies have made reviews a mandatory tool to push their own opinion to consumers, rather than providing an honest outlook for games, this field of argument is not restricted just for Edge, but for all major gaming publications who operate in the gaming industry.

It would be rather unnatural to assume that these big companies/publications have a stake in the game itself. Fanboyism makes this proposition even worse, in addition to the large big huge corporations, the pressure of being ignored completely by a particular community also hangs precariously over the heads of these...
 

Video: X-Play Killzone 2 Review for the Sony PlayStation 3

50°
304w ago - Check out the awesome video below courtesy of G4TV's X-Play, who has given Killzone 2 a 5 out of 5 rating! To quote:

Some shooters try to hang a deep and meaningful story on their shootouts, and more often than not the plot twists end up either completely forgotten or way confusing. Not Killzone 2. This down the barrel look at life knows exactly why you're here. These Helghast have harried you for long enough.

It is time for them to be the home team. As ISA Sergeant Sevchenko, you will lead an invasion of the hazy Helghast home world, Helghan. After watching about ten seconds of an in-game news broadcast and an exciting dropship ride, the game grants you permission to fire, and off you go! Get the lead out! Why? Who cares!? They have red eyes! Do you need another reason?




The Killzone franchise has a checkered past. The first installment rode a wave of hype (not unlike the wave this game is riding) right into a wall of disappointment. Some hated the game's loose controls. Some hated the moronic AI. Some hated the glitches and slow-down that the game suffered from.

A good soundtrack and interesting ideas won't carry a game though, and the original Killzone not only didn't meet the unreasonable expectations...
 

Sony UK Plans for 2.8 Million Dollar Killzone 2 Advertising Spree

50°
304w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has stacked a tidy lump sum of £2‭m (approx. $2.8m US) to help promote Killzone 2 in the region, [Register or Login to view links] reports.

Planning to swarm the unsuspecting island with television and movie theater ads, Sony UK is adamant in pushing its upcoming first-person shooter.

To quote: The dedication of £2‭m points to Sony's confidence in the Guerrilla Games developed title, which currently holds a high 95% Metacritic rating - if numbers mean anything to you.

Sony UK has also allotted an additional £2‭m in order to promote other high profile PS3 exclusives, including industry darling, but commercially snubbed, LittleBigPlanet.

SCEE marketing director Alan Duncan told Edge that recent reviews of Killzone 2 prove the title has "lived up" to expectations and "brings a new energy" to the competitive first-person genre.

Sony UK hopes strong ads for Killzone 2 can drive sales in the region, which will receive an exclusive bundle for the game's release. That's fantastic, but how about someone drive to the PSN server room and flip the switch to give us that demo already.
