Killzone two the most anticapted game for ps3 since the playstation 3 release. Is it really worth all the hype to be honest it is and its not, the graphics are simply amazing it is the best looking game availble on todays markets. The ai is soem of the best i have seen in all my years of gaming. The gameplay it's self is very good but the controls are annoying and take time to get used to.
For a game thats been 5 years in the making the story could of been alot better, there's no emotional attachment to the characters at all. The story seems a little vague in places. Your left wondering what am i meant to do next or why am i doing this. The basic plot is basically go kill helghan don't ask questions. You'll soon be raking in the kills feeling none the slightest for why your killing hundreds of helghans apart from pure hatred. There no questions of morality hanging over the player justoh i killied some more.
The helghan are portrayed as a future nazi race almost the game tries to make hate them so that it justifies all the killing. Their leader could even been seen as a future hitler or stalin dictator. The game story needs alot of work and could of been alot better if the developers put tiem into it, alot more choice makign options, morality questioning moments and alot more standout moments which killzone lacks there are few but not enough.
The story isn't bad it just could of been alot better then it is, considering the game has been in making for 5 years. The online i have not played yet but is meant to be on par with cod4 and the annoyign cover system is taken out for this.
Overall killzone 2 is a game that deserves praise, for the elements of gameplay and graphics but not for the single player campign there is little encourage meant to play through more then twice. Why co-op hasn't been included is a big mystery as surely this woudl add another level to the game and surely make it a 100% game otherswise it remains at 90%.
