Killzone 2 : Barely Mediocre

50 second read

Surfer Girl is a blog that has consistently been leaking accurate and timely inside information. This week he/she has stated that the cost of creating Killzone 2 has now reached $60 million and the game is still not finished.

It is getting to the point where Insomniac, the guys who made resistance, are actually feeling quite resentful against them as they have a better game further along in development than Killzone 2….

To make matters even worse it appears that while Killzone 2 is a beautiful game to look at the gameplay is being described as barely mediocre… ouch…

Now Killzone 1 was not much to behold and the controversy that has followed Killzone 2 doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere.

    I wonder why you never reported her rumour about the development of Splinter Cell Conviction going poorly?

    Bias?

    (Personally, I think he/she is a con, but if you’re going to give the site any credibility, it should cut both ways).

    I personally don’t usually read Surfer Girl but as stated it was a tip sent in and the site does have some credibility.

    I didn’t see any news about Splinter Cell’s development going badly either… They also didn’t fake a trailer and become instantly infamous for it.

    I can’t read all the news so any tips that are sent in are greatly appreciated… I will go check on Splinter Cell now

    I bet this will be delayed further, to try to make it live up to the expectations . COD4 set the bar very high for any other FPS action titles to follow.

    Dammit. I was really hoping that they would pull it off. This is one game I really wanted to play on my PS3.

  • I’ll wait for a reputable site to post a first impressions…

  • LazySAGamer

    @Jinja, oh absolutely… I think I need to create a rumour tag.

    I am personally hoping Killzone 2 is as great as they keep telling us it is…

    Or just go play Resistance 2, or CoD4.

    Killzone 1 was never that highly rated, I guess it’s just that strange desperation for a “Halo killer” that led to expectations being so high.

    On SC:C, Thanks JimBob. It’s quite reassuring to see that the other two “delayed disasters”, have now be shown and if RS Vegas 2 and Far Cry 2 are the benchmarks, I’m sure SC:C will be just great 😉

    Killzone 2 will sell millions regardless, but screw it bring me Resistance 2 instead!
