Conclusion: When it comes down to it, Killzone 2 is a sublimely crafted title for the PS3. It delivers on our expectations with a modest and intelligent twist on the overcrowded FPS genre. As one of the best looking games ever, it seems the power of Sony’s console is beginning to harness its true strength in a vital period for the company. As it stands today, this is the best reason to own a PlayStation 3 console, as Guerrilla Games’ hard work finally begins to pay off.
Conclusion: There is so much more to tell about Heroes VI but despite my best efforts, it is almost impossible to convey just how much it feels like a heroes game. Play it, but beware, the campaign will take you weeks to complete even if every minute is spent in enjoyment. Ask me the question in the opening paragraph today, I will answer that Heroes III had a good run but it is no longer the best Heroes game ever made, this is.
Pros: Very much a Heroes game, best of the series.
Cons: Don’t forget to feed yourself every now and then.
Excerpt: The original Killzone was the best FPS game on the PS2 as far as I’m concerned, it was only held back by developer, Guerrilla Games, massive ambitions, whilst the aging internals of the PS2 also meant that the game put a lot of heavy strain on the system. With Sony’s almighty PS3, Guerrilla now have the ultimate proving ground to flaunt their talents as well as the true ferocity of the Helghast.
Excerpt: or: Death-Quadrant Dos! Let me say this right off the bat: Killzone 2 ’s graphics are amazing, and I’m saying this still about one year after its January release. Killzone 2 is basically the Gran Turismo 5 of the FPS world; it was majorly hyped back at E3 2005, but saw little advance in the next two years and was virtually forgotten about until mid 2008.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a violent shooter intended for mature audiences. Players use an array of weapons to kill enemies, including assault rifles, shotguns, rocket launchers, and grenades. Blood often spurts from enemies as they're hit, and will sometimes splatter onto the screen. Head shots which result in decapitation are possible. Players will witness a wounded soldier killing himself by shooting himself in the head.
Excerpt: Bringing a building to its knees with a turret; nailing a gas canister and watching it spiral out of control; pinning a Helghast to a wall with the bolt gun and watching him writhe in agony; letting rip with the superb flamethrower; watching hundreds of bullets whiz and ping, sending chunks of concrete flying off of pillars and exposing electrical cabling underneath; marvelling at the most stunning, eye-catching war torn backgrounds and skylines your gaming eyes ever did...
Conclusion: Concept: Continue the war against the Helghast in the best-looking shooter on the PS3
Graphics: Phenomenal visuals shine a spotlight on this system's capabilities
Sound: Sound effect work is a standout success, while the constantly shouted voice acting leaves a little to be desired
Playability: Numerous control schemes and the clean only-shows-up-when-needed HUD are both welcome
Entertainment: Intense, frantic, and technically polished, this is a great addition to Sony's...
