News - Killzone 2

360 magazine praises Killzone 2
Posted on January 27, 2009 by Joshua N.
 

The 360 magazine posted a highly unusual review on their blog. How unusual? Well... they reviewed PS3-exclusive Killzone 2, and they liked it. What's more, the review says that it's better than Gears of War 2 in some respects.

Now this is what I call anti-fanboyism. Spread the love. The review was mainly based on 20 minutes of gameplay after spotting the Killzone 2 preview code on the desk of their sister mag, Play. Here a clip from the review:

It’s good. Really good in fact. this is the genre that has belonged to the 360 since its inception, but it finally looks like Sony has an Ace in its deck.

 

Visually, Killzone 2 is quite something - besting even Gears 2 in the motion-blurred grey battleground stakes, and the weight and purpose of everyting from the weapons to the characters is somethign to behold. Most importantly, though, it’s really satisfying to play.

 

The enemy AI, coupled with a well implemented cover system (unusual for an FPS) means Killzone 2’s skirmishes are uniquely challenging and gratifyingly meaty.


The reviewer does add though, that his impressions are based on just experiencing a part of the opening mission, so whether Killzone 2 will deliver on variety is still a matter to be seen. At any rate, this only gets me pumped up more for the game. Killzone 2 will be released on February 27.
