Killzone 2: Soon To Be Killing Them Softly
“Killzone 2″ is about to hit store shelves and with reviewable copies being sent out nationwide, and the game is shaping up to be the exclusive to own in 2009.
Metacritic has a collective score for the game at 93 percent and critics all over are praising Guerrilla Games latest attempt at a “Halo Killer.” 1up.com wowed at the detail given to the game, noting spectacular effects such as the glass on your mech cracking after taking various amounts of damage. They even went as far as to say that “Killzone 2″ was the first potential candidate for 2009 “game of the year”.
IGN said the scope of the game was fantastic, and that the graphics really help immerse you in the war-torn world of “K2.” They also noted that the multilayer is as solid as anything else out on the system and that people will be playing “K2″ for months to come.
IGN did say that the game featured minor slowdown while loading different areas of the game, and that some of the weapon effects could have looked more realistic. But overall, minor gripes in a amazing package.
I don’t know about you guys, but I am getting fairly excited. I knew “Killzone 2″ would be a good game, I just wasn’t sure whether or not it was going to be the type of game that could help move systems off store shelves. However, these early reviews suggest that the game may indeed do just that. The first “Killzone” was definitely a fun and interesting take on the genre, but the game was not as memorable as Sony might have liked. It’s nice too see that Guerrilla Games is finally getting everything worked out their second time through. Only two more weeks gamers, then you and I can join forces and take out those Helghast bastards with authority. And keep you eyes peeled as TGH will have our own review in the coming weeks.
