Killzone 2 (SCEA)

 

If you're into crime noir action games, then Yakuza won't disappoint you. The gameplay may be a little convulsive but Yakuza more than makes up for that through engrossing story and attention to details.

top-notch graphics, fantastic single- and multiplayer modes

Killzone 2

 

Killzone 2 boasts amazing visuals, an intense campaign and extraordinary online play that will keep you coming back for more.

Well-paced campaign keeps you in the thick of the action ; Great online play constantly rewards you ; Intricate, balanced multiplayer maps ; Weapons are beefy and fun to shoot ; Visually stunning, both technically and artistically

Forgettable story and characters ; Tacked-on motion controls

You'll have to look to the inevitable Killzone 3 to find out if developer Guerilla can dig any diamonds out of this series' rough narrative. Otherwise, Killzone 2 is an exceptional first-person shooter, not because it does anything particularly new,...

Killzone 2

 

Killzone 2 is one of the biggest releases for the Playstation 3, an exclusive FPS that's been awaited since suspiciously spectacular E3 footage. But is the long wait worth it? Does it look as good as the promises?

Exceptional graphics. Gritty combat. Probably has good Multiplayer but I can't be sure. Um... that's about it

Offers nothing new to the genre. Story is sub-par. Incredibly cliched dialogue between uninteresting and undeveloped characters. Rico. What a douche

Everyone except me likes this game, so listen to them instead. Go out and buy it. Have fun shooting the British Nazis and feel free to say "That Matt guy doesn't know anything! This game is great!" while avoiding any concept of thought for a few hours....

Killzone 2 Review

 

Some serious development time has left Killzone 2 not only looking absolutely stunning, but also showing off the sheer power of the PS3 in the right hands. Modern FPS gaming comes wrapped alongside the splendid presentation with a few issues that...

Incredible visuals running at a solid 30fps; Stunning art-direction; Vehicular segments are great fun; Enemy AI is quite challenging; Tons of replay thanks to multiplayer

Controls feel overly complicated and convoluted; Level design often negates the ferocity of skirmishes; No team commands and your AI buds can't revive you; Ridiculous use of the SIXAXIS controller

KILLZONE 2 PLAYSTATION 3 REVIEW

 

Killzone 2 was a game that was hugely anticipated long before it was even released. With the weight of expectation, the developers faced the daunting task of delivering a FPS that could live up to all the hype and possibly rival the highly regarded...

1. Outstanding visuals ; 2. Superbly composed orchestral soundtrack and top-notched 7.1 channel audio ; 3. Intense FPS with good game play mechanics and great cover system ; 4. Online multi-player mode with up to 32 players is what...

1. Single player campaign mode may only get one run with the multi-player being so good ; 2. Noticeable slow down when the player reaches a checkpoint or autosaving ; 3. No two player co-op option in single player campaign mode

Killzone 2 features superb visuals and extremely intense battles. It's not quite Halo or Gears of War but it comes fairly close. There are other games of this genre out there that have more compelling storylines and better single player campaign modes....
