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.

Well its a great game from the point of view thats its a solid fps. But the environments let it down. there are no let ups in the dark levels and it made me feel quite depressed :(

  Solid, If a little uninspiring

Killzone 2 is a very polished and accomplished game. It has truly stunning graphics even if the environments are a bit grim and industrial looking. The detail does shine through. The actual gameplay is based on a very much tried and tested formula and doesn't reach out to try anything new or original. Single player is a little short and not too challenging and multiplayer is fun at times with lots of different game modes to keep you occupied.

I don't know if it's just me but I found the game had no spark that made me want to keep on playing it as it was based on a tried and trusted formula.

So, if it's originality you're looking for steer elsewhere, but if you want a solid FPS thats despite its faults is still one of the better games available for the PS3.

Really enjoyed playing this game, I loved the story behind it, loved the graphics and the game play. In my opinion this game is a must have for the ps3 and would recommend it to all. It also has a cool online game play experience. Hope there is a Kill Zone 3!

The graphics are amazing!
but in my opinion it wasn't quite worth the hype.

the story mode is quite short, and I find it easy even on the harder settings; and since the multi-player leaves much to be admired it had zero replay value for me.

it gets a 4 star rating just for the graphics; because i haven't seen textures like this in a while.

Feels the same as CRYSIS and Gears of War; god to look at, but is actually quite rubbish?

no.. rubbish is too harsh; it's still an awesome game, but it left me expecting more.

  One of the best

Can't say anything bad about this game, awesome graphics, gameplay, story and lots of action.

  Took awhile to get into it but now I can't stop playing it!

After the amazing trailer and all the hype I was hoping for Call Of Duty -Future War!
So I was disappointed at first but and the more I played it the better it got! Great online mode too!
This will more than keep me til Modern Warfare 2

  Best console shooter of all time.

Graphically stunning, amazing sound effects, and the most immersive gameplay you could imagine. Kudos to Guerilla Games, they've produced one heck of title!

A "must buy" title for the PS3.
