4.5 Overhyped, Overrated dickyw | 05/08/2009 | See all dickyw's reviews (7) Dont get me wrong this is a good game, but thats just it, it is merely good. The hype surrounding this game was immense and it is no wonder the game struggles to live up to the weight of expectation. The graphics are the strongest thing about Killzone 2. They are jawdropping and really show how much better graphics can be on the ps3 over 360 (I own and love both, not a fan boy this is simply fact) The gameplay is average and feels slow compared to other shooters, i.e resistance, call of duty. You have to be very precicse with your aiming and it is not unusual for it to take a full clip to kill 1 enemy. The layout can be clunky, for example if you want to melee kill an enemy with the knife you must first equip it then attack then re equip your rifle??? why not just make the rifle butt button the knife kill button. Plus you can only carry 1 primary weapon at a time, want to carry a rocket launcher and an automatic rifle? forget it one weapon must always be a pistol which is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard. Overall this is a very dark, but verry pretty game let down by poorly thought out game mechanics and button lay out. It is by no means a bad game, but definatly not great either. buy resistance 2 or call of duty, you will have more fun.
