Killzone 2

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • 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.

Killzone 2 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • 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.

Killzone 2

The 8th Circuit
29 December 2009
  • 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.

Breathtaking Visual Fidelity Meets Large-Scale Battles

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • 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...

  • 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...

Killzone 2

Playstation Illustrated
4 August 2009
  • Excerpt: I'm a bit late to the Killzone 2 hype wagon. I'll admit that I was one of the non-believers a few years ago when the now famous CGI trailer was introduced at E3 and since then, I've maintained high, but reserved, interest in the game's development. While I never completely doubted that the presentation wouldn't be top-notch, my expectations of it actually delivering on gameplay were tempered by my not-so-great feelings towards the first game - feelings that have been all...

Mature shooter has impressive graphics; multiplayer excels.

Common Sense Media
4 August 2009
  • 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.
