Killzone PS3 – Sony's shooter saves the PS3

1 min read

Games radar has an in depth and completely over the top preview of Killzone 2. 

Killzone 2 was almost everything we’d hoped for, and miles ahead of what we secretly feared – not bad, for a relatively tame third level. The primary emotion, relief, was soon replaced with a tingling delight that Sony had lived up to the standards of that E3 2005 trailer. In 30 minutes, Sony transformed the perception of PS3 from an overpriced extravagance populated by me-too Xbox 360 ports, to the most exciting, important console in the world.

They go so far as to call it a PS3 saver. If everything they say in the review is true, and there really is no reason to not believe them, then this game sounds absolutely awesome…. It will seriously move consoles and as long as they don’t mess up the online side of the game this could become a long term purchase.

After all the negative press this game received after its botched E3 2005 showing it is good to see it coming through at the end.

    Now where did I put that extra 7k for my PS3……….. 😛

    It’s not hard to find one in the R5 000 erea.

    Now the lazy developers can see what the PS3 is capable of and put a little more effort in to it.

  • Ruslan

    Lazy developers dont have 4 years to make games. But hope this is the first PS3 shooter of note!

  • Jak

    Ya i guess that is true. But it is the same story with all the other major games, multi plat or not. Eg. Halo 3, COD4, Assasins Creed, KZ2, MGS4 and so on. If you wanna make an awesome game it will take time. Just look at FF.

    The PS3 needs to be saved?

  • SHAKES ZA

    Killzone 2 looks great!!Wonder if it’ll be as good as GOW or Halo 3?

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    @ Ocelot, yeah, at the moment, the PS3 does need to be saved. Lagging way behind and staring third place in the face after dominating the last console cycle four to one, I’d say it does need desperate saving. As for Killzone, I remember the hype of the first Killzone and what it turned out to be. I’ll save my emotions until I read serious reviews. Not Previews.

  • Ghost Babel

    Killzone 2 looking deadly. Great stuff. The ps3 sits at btwn 4 – 6 mil and saying it needs “saving” is sensationalism, which comes with being a brand leader. Its pricey,hasnt even completed a year and has had no real xmas season (only usa + jap). Besides killzone’s only due nxt year. Theres plenty 1st party titles (and 3rd party) out b4 then.

  • Ruslan

    No Xmas season is Sony’s fault, for this year hopefully Haze & Lair can make an impression but I am currently out of fingers counting the AAA titles expected for the X360 in the next few months. Even whilst being multiplatform and all the X360 versions get my pick due to quite a few reasons…
