Two years after the Helghast assault on Vekta, the ISA are taking the fight to Helghan. Their goal: to capture the Helghast leader, Emperor Visari, and bring the Helghast war machine to a halt. You assume the role of Sev, a battle-hardened veteran and a member of the special forces unit known as the Legion.

For Sev and his squad, the invasion of Helghan is just beginning. Tasked with securing Pyrrhus, the Capital City, they quickly discover that the Helghast are a formidable enemy on their home planet. Not only have they adjusted to the planet's hostile conditions, they have also harnessed a source of power they can now use against the ISA.

Sev and his squad aren't just fighting the enemy forces - their fiercest opponent is the planet itself.

Welcome to Helghan, soldier!
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

 Let me ask you, Do you like Marmite?

Some say K2 has the best graphics ever seen in a video game (in realism terms) some say its just another depressing brown and grey shooter.Now of course having the best graphics around is one thing but it all means nothing if you dont have a good game underneath all the smoke and mirrors, this is where opinions are divided.

The controls- If you've not heard this is no run 'n' gun fest (you NEED to take cover) the developers decided that to add more realism to the game that weapons should be heavy, now its hard to describe without trying yourself but 'heavy ' are a good idea of what you're up against . Now i turned up the sensitivity of the sticks to the max which does improve the controls (now even better due to a high precision mode added in a patch), basically your an average soldier not superman so you stuggle to lift up your weapons cos in real life these guns would be heavy. If you want COD4 controls you wont find them here but if you persevere you'll get the hang of it. In this game the controls are the dealbreaker.

Now the Campaign/Story mode
There is nothing new or spectacular here. The back story is you the ISA travel to the planet of Helghan to wage war on the Helghast after they invaded your planet in the previous game. This consists of you playing as Sev and another soldier Rico taking the fight to the Helghast in one big set piece after another. Simple. Now getting from A to B you will encounter Helghast along the way and these guys are no pushover.

One of the best points of this game is the enemy AI, just like real life opponents they will draw you out with grenades, flank you from all sides, blind fire from behind cover and continually change positions of cover so you will never get the drop on them, at times it feels like your playing real people the AI is so good. Unfortunately your comrades dont share the same intelligence and will regularly charge into battle and need reviving.

Dialogue- Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) voicing General Radec and Brian Cox (Bourne Identity) as Emperor Visari are 2 stand out performances apart from those its the usual profanity based squaddie speak we expect from FPS these days.

For people who like to use vehicles there aren't that many chances to do so. Without going into details there are the standard vehicles that you get in every FPS these days and its a bit of a let down until near the end when you get to use a .....(I wont spoil it for you).

Warzone Online Multiplayer is where this game shines. You can choose to create max 32 player battles where you decide the maps, guns, badges, ranks, match types (team deathmatch, assaasination, search and destroy and more) etc. Similar To COD4 you are constantly rewarded for gaining XP, rewards include new classes and abilities such as Medics (revive fallen comrades) Engineers (repair ammo piles and set up turrets) to Snipers ( don the invisibility cloak) plus many more. The way it works is you unlock a new class and its primary abiliy, use the ability 8 times and you unlock the second ability, do that 8 times and you get a badge meaning you can mix and match abilities with other classes you've already unlocked. You will always have something to play for.

If you're offline then you have Skirmish mode, basically a 16 player Warzone, except with AI bots, you get all the same options as in Warzone. Bot AI can be changed to be more challenging pesonally i used this as a training mode for Warzone and to get the feel of the maps. DLC maps can also be used in Skirmish mode.

Killzone 2 isn't innovate or original, but that does'nt make it any less impressive. I loved K2 and at £18 its worth the gamble, adapt to the controls and you will love it too. If you dont, well.....

I honestly have no idea what people see in this game.
The story isn't that interesting, the guns are boring, and when you run and move around it feels like you're stuck in toffee.

 Not impressive

As many others, I had pretty high expectations to this game, as the 1st one was excellent.
And it starts of good too, but from there on, it just gets down right annoyng.
The graphics are great, not as good as people claimed, but adequate.
The 1st one was, as said before, great. This one, on the other hand, must be the most frustrating game i've played in a long time.
I.e, the sniper rifle is infact even worse now, since you have to hold tyour controller completely still, since you can aim using it. Not a big deal, but enough to annoy you.
There is no custimazible button configuration eiher, so you'll simply have to learn one of the 5 presets.
Another thing that many will notice, is that even though several weapons have the ability(by the looks of it) to have a secondary fire, it has been cut of, with no good reason.
And now to the frustrating part, I went through the game on the hardest possible(hadn't unlocked elite), which was bad enough.
If you don't like dying, stay clear, cuz you'll most likely be doing a lot of it.
I don't know what they were thinking when they implemented INFINITE waves of enemies at several spots in the game.
Because you have to advance to certain checkpoints on the battlefield in order to stop them. Retarded in my oppinion.
Mix that with accuracy that would impress artillery and ridicolous health, and you have Killzone 2 in a nutshell.
It would have helped if the players weapons were somewhat accurat, but nay.
A great game, but way to many unnessasary flaws to get yourself riled up over, like checkpoints eiher way too far waay from the action, or a little bit too far into it, but way too rare.

 Stands out from the crowd of bland shooters!

Well it seems...unsurprisingly...that other reviewers here are expecting this game to be exactly the same as Modern Warfare; gun-porn, running round hunting kills, twitchy action gameplay, everything that turns off most tactical players!

The single player game is very well realised, the locations are superb and the graphics put most other shooters to shame. The plot is a bit laboured, trying to cover over the fact that it's a standard "good guys versus fascists" tale. It makes good use of a cover system without you ever feeling like the cover was just put there to make your life easier. It all looks like part of the landscape.

On to the multiplayer. This game is NOT Modern Warfare! You need to think about your class, think about what you want to achieve and the tools you will need, and think about how you can compliment your squadmates. Victory doesn't just depend on racking up as many kills as you can. You need to learn to heal your team, block choke points with turrets and C4, and how to set up respawn points to ensure you complete your objectives! The community is much smaller than MW or MW2 but as long as you can find a game day or night...which you can... then who cares? The community is more focussed on playing the game well, everyone I've met playing other shooters is only interested in XP and levelling up their characters; this game is NOT for them!

At a fantastic price of GBP14.99 this game is a must for all PS3 owners. I've been playing online shooters for over a decade on PC, and this is the only PS3 shooter I can bear to play. If you want to drop in and out of a game without ever really getting "into it", buy MW2. If you want to succeed at a game that tests your brains instead of twitch skills then try Killzone 2.

I'm an old COD veteran and i can say you! When you learn the controls on Killzone 2 and you skill up till you have all extras in the multiplayer-mode, i swear to god, you will love it! KZ2 is a shooter for gamers with brain! Its not only "spawn, run & kill" ! Everyone who said this, is a noob! This game you have to play a few weeks till you really understand the multiplayer. If you have a clan, you will be the happiest FPS gamer in this world! KZ2 has the best Clanassistance ever! I never liked to play in a clan, but Killzone 2 make it real and showed how incredible it can be with a clan! Check out killzone.com fpr more information about this!

The singleplayer has the best A.I. and best graphics ever on consoles and PC ! Check ou KILLZONE 2, take time and learn to play this game. You will love it. I promise..
