Killzone 2 impresses Japanese critics
Posted on April 22, 2009 by Nick
 

First person shooters are all the rage in Europe and North America, though the same is not true in Japan, where even critically acclaimed shooters like Bioshock fall by the wayside.  Nonetheless, the critically acclaimed, Sony exclusive Killzone 2 has even impressed stalwart Japanese critics.  The first person shooter received  90/85/80/80 marks from Dengeki PlayStation and earned a 32/40 from Famitsu, two of the largest Japanese gaming publications.

Though Killzone 2 was released way back in February for western audiences, the title is set to debut later today in Japan, on April 23.  To date, the best opening this generation for a first person shooter in Japan lies with Halo 3, which sold a bit over 60,000 units it's first week.  Resistance 2 sold just over 30,000 copies in it's first week.  Will Killzone 2 take the position as the new top dog?  With only a day left until it's release, we won't have long to see.

Dear god I hope not. Haze should have ben placed in the bin of games that should never be played unless you are thrown into limbo for tear a rift into the space continuum which in turn creates an alternate dimension that is vastly boring and would make you want to hit yourself in the crotch just to keep trying to wake yourself from this hellish nightmare that is....Gaming Wasteland...
