Review: Killzone 2 for the PlayStation 3 Console - 9.9/10 Overall

250°
296w ago - MEGamers write: Truth is, all my life I've been an ardent PC gamer that scoffed at inferior FPS experiences on the console. My colleagues always teased me for being a hardcore PC fanatic (fancy name for "fanboy").

It's a given fact that PC gamers are much harder to please in terms of quality or gameplay and hence, console FPS ports are always a disappointment.

Throughout the years, being an extremist that I am, console games like Halo 3 only managed a "hmmmm", while few others like Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 never went beyond the "meh" factor.

After the recent buzz and hype behind Sony's upcoming FPS, I decided to sit down and spend some quality time with the game and I cannot deny the truth... Killzone 2 has made me a believer!

Killzone 2 sees you take the role of Thomas Sev of the ISA, tasked with a nightmarish war on a planet called "Helgan", home to a populace of pissed off half-humans called "Helghast". For those wondering, Killzone 2 is not merely a shoot-em-up title involving big guns and brutal enemies.

The game's story runs deep and the enemies you're fighting against have a long and sorrowful past of torture and repression. The first thing that becomes apparent when you land on Helgan is the beauty of destruction - A...
 

Killzone 2 for PS3 to Blast More Than 100 Death Animations

50°
296w ago - A Sony rep has revealed that the final version of Killzone 2 will feature over 100 death animations. Obviously the death animation will vary depending on where the enemy is shot.

To quote: A Sony Corp. representative this month said that the title Killzone 2 for the PlayStation 3 will feature more than 100 death animations in the final game.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, the representative said that death animations will vary depending on where the enemy is shot.

Kills demonstrated in the Nov. beta and at CES include instant-drop kills from headshots to more relishing back shots that cause the soldier to writhe a bit before the sweet release of death.

Killzone 2 is the first-person sequel to the PlayStation 2 release, Killzone. It is scheduled to be released on Feb. 27.
 

Sony Justifies Pre-Order-Only Killzone 2 Demo, Dates PSN Version

50°
296w ago - Sony has attempted to justify its policy in North America where gamers will only get the KillZone 2 demo if they pre-order the game.

MTV Multiplayer received this response from Scott Steinberg, vice president of product marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America:

Offering a playable demo to motivate preorders speaks to our confidence in the appeal of a game such as Killzone 2. We take this approach when we are convinced that the experience will cement a consumer's interest in purchasing.

Retailers will then merchandise those demos within their stores and online to maximize their visibility. Through this process, consumers are often times able to reserve their copy of the final game, which provides an incentive to purchase and helps seal the deal.

We also offer demos on the PSN, which we have done in the past with great success, and will continue to make that available. Killzone 2, for example, will have a downloadable demo launch in North America the week that the game is launching, for consumers who prefer that option.

And what if you don't pre-order "Killzone 2″ but want to try the demo? It's slated for release as a download from the PlayStation Network on PS3 for Thursday, February 26, a day before the game's official release date. That...

Killzone 2 is a Powerful Contender for Best Game of 2009

250°
296w ago - Killzone 2 has been hyped up for years now. It has reached that state where a game is so hyped that it is nearly impossible for it to live up to the expectations.

Few games that have reached this state have lived up to the hype given to them. For most games, the hype is so high that they get buried under it (Too Human). So what will happen to Killzone 2?

Well if early talk about Killzone 2 is to be believed, it will exceed the mountainous hype it currently has.

Although it's not the most trustworthy source (not only because its name, but also because it had the first review), PlayStation: The Official Magazine gave Killzone 2 a perfect score in its February issue. The review said:

It's true that Killzone 2 is filled with moments that can handily be described as inspiring awe. Each scene is incredibly well detailed, from the gaps in jerry-rigged cover points letting you sneak in a killing headshot to scarred and scratched textures, the planet feels entirely believable... Without a doubt Killzone fans, action and shooter fans of any stripe will instantly tag this sequel as a powerful contender for best game of 2009.
