Killzone 2

 

Is Killzone 2 the exclusive shooter that the PS3 has been waiting for?

While there's nothing really new about Killzone 2, the phenomenal pacing, stunning polish and overwhelming bombast of the whole experience elevates it to the top tier of FPS games. The PS3 finally has the flagship shooter it deserves.

Killzone 2 review

 

Almost four years have passed since Sony first unveiled Killzone 2, their vastly darker answer to the Halo franchise. In gaming terms, four years is an eternity, but Guerilla Games' gritty shooter is finally here to deliver a kickass experience that...

It took a long time for Killzone 2 to finally come out, but after diving head first into Killzone 2, there's no doubt in my mind that it lives up to the hype and is a must-play for FPS fans. With an intense single-player mode, a robust multiplayer...

Killzone 3

 

For all the ambitious but ultimately speculative claims that Killzone 3 will usurp Call of Duty's first person shooter throne, we've got one thing to say: it doesn't. Those of you who will be buying Killzone 3 based on any such claims will be very...

Killzone 2 PS3 Review

 

The original Killzone was the best FPS game on the PS2 as far as I'm concerned, it was only held back by developer, Guerrilla Games, massive ambitions, whilst the aging internals of the PS2 also meant that the game put a lot of heavy strain on the...

Killzone 2 was certainly worth the long wait, the cover-based single player campaign may be a tad short, although it’s certainly memorable and has a smart opposition army to contend with, whilst the multiplayer is up there with the grandness of the...

Killzone 2: Steel & Titanium Pack

 

Deciding whether or not you should buy DLC is easy, and we at D+PAD reply to dissenters of such content delivery with a light headshake whilst avoiding eye contact and crossing to the other side of the street. What you tend to find is that the haters...

So the new maps are another shot in the arm for an online experience gaining huge popularity, but why is the score not higher? We’re pretty sure we’re not mistaken here, but charging £4.79 for two maps is generally not economically viable in this day...

Killzone 2 PS3 Review

 

Killzone 2 certainly has its sensibilities right. The world you are fighting in feels real, and reins in its fantastical elements enough to make you care about what you are fighting for. In terms of gameplay the title is not genre-redefining, sticking...

Some co-op would have been nice, though.

Killzone 2

 

Ah sequels…. So often just rehashed, ill-conceived efforts to tease out the cash from your pocket. Not Killzone 2 though – no way, no how. Bigger, better and prettier (in a browny-grey-everything-has-been-blown-to-bits kind of way), Sony's shooter...

One of the best looking games on any console. Fantastic art design. Weaponry is authentic and fun. Movement has a bulked-up sturdy feel. Will feel familiar if you've played Gears of War

A ‘whatever' storyline. Hollow characterisation. No online co-op

Killzone 2 PS3 Review

 

The amount of hype surrounding Killzone 2 is almost as unbelievable as the game's visuals. Since the first controversial pre-rendered trailer appeared almost four years ago the game has constantly been one of the oases in the drought of PS3 exclusives....

Outstanding visuals ; Multiplayer replayability ; Good weapon selection

Short ; Poor friendly AI ; Controls difficult to adjust to

Killzone 2 (PS3)

 

The hottest game of E3 2005 arrives.

The FPS market has become over-saturated in recent times with the release of one identikit shooter after another. It needs something to progress the genre and unfortunately Killzone 2 isn’t one of them. Ultimately the single player is unspectacular but...

Killzone 2 (2009)

 

For a four-star game, there's a lot broken in Killzone 2. The acting is appalling for starters, with a shitstorm of two-bit actors hamming their way through the story and rotting any sense of immersion. The lack of a co-operative mode – something the...

Product Specifications

In and out within a month, they said. Their weapons no match for our military might. Predicted moderate to low resistance. Enemy morale at an all-time low. They couldn't have been more wrong. Welcome to Helghan. Two years after the Helghast assault on Vekta, the ISA are taking the fight to Helghan. Their goal: to capture the Helghast leader, Emperor Visari, and bring the Helghast war machine to a halt. You assume the role of Sev, a battle-hardened veteran and a member of the special forces unit known as the Legion. For Sev and his squad, the invasion of Helghan is just beginning. Tasked with securing Pyrrhus, the Capital City, they quickly discover that the Helghast are a formidable enemy on their home planet. Not only have they adjusted to the planet's hostile conditions, they have also harnessed a source of power they can now use against the ISA. Sev and his squad aren't just fighting the enemy forces - their fiercest opponent is the planet itself. Between Killzone's unique visual style, the power of Playstation 3, the use of EDGE tools and the proprietary technology developed by Guerrilla, the game promises to impress players with its benchmark visuals, smooth character animation, detailed, effect-laden environments and realtime cutscenes. The Deferred rendering technology will present a world that is beautifully lit, with ambient occlusion and multiple shadow casting light sources bringing out the highly detailed environments and character animations. With true next-gen audio the player is even further immersed in the world, supporting 7.1 surround and audio occlusion with wave tracing. The player will not only notice the difference between indoor and outdoor but also experience sound and music that are dynamic and contextual. Studio grade special effects will provide unprecedented visual fidelity. With full screen anti-aliasing, motion blur, internal lens reflections and depth based color grading the picture will be sharp, smooth and full of depth.
