Lives up to the hype and worth the wait,
This review is from: Killzone 2 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Several of the previous reviews have already hit on the strengths and weaknesses of this game, so I will try to keep this short. Killzone 2 is well worth the purchase price if you are a ps3 owner and are at all interested in first person shooters. The graphics are very sharp and clean. The color palette is a little limited, but I believe that was intentional because the designers were trying to illustrate the spartan nature of the Helghan civilization and architecture and the inhospitality of the planet. I like the controls because I played the original Killzone to get ready for this game and the controls are virtually identical to the original ps2 game. However, if you are coming over from Call of Duty 4 the control scheme will take a while to adjust to. I do believe there is an option to switch the control settings to a Call of Duty-type setting but I am not sure. Finally, the online multiplayer is fun, and from what I can tell so far, has an interesting level up and promotion system that should keep any player busy for a long time. In summary, the graphics, gameplay, and presentation are all excellent and really demonstrate the graphical prowess of the ps3.
