E3: More Killzone 2 gameplay

E3: More Killzone 2 gameplay

Many (many!) people asked us when we'd put online the second part of our Killzone 2 video. Well there it is, finally! And thankfully it looks just as good as the first part. Enjoy!

Thanks for the vid and sorry for the whining.

Finally this game looks as good as promised. The previous showings were pretty dismal, regardless of what people wanna say. Glad to see the Textures finally look non shitty. I like the way it looks. But that Magnuim sounds like a fucking BB gun. Where the montrosity from Half Life 2? v.v

game looks awesome as always. love the dynamic reactive animation system they have, its almost like their very own in-house euphoria engine. impressive stuff. personally i prefared the first showing of the game tho, the dark, lightning based level. for some reason that demonstration impressed me more. not so much technically since the textures and performance have obviously improved since then, but from a design perpective i just liked it more.

Player has far too much health. After the grenade blast and getting shot, he should have been dead.

You can never have too much health! *eats carrot*

I'm pretty sure they tweak these for presentations/events like this. Then you have to factor in difficulty as well. I'd expect in the retail copy that a grenade will be instant death at a certain range.

aye, the nade wasnt a direct hit either, more like splash damage, so the same thing would happen in cod4 on the normal difficulty (which is what this is set to)

The graphics looks awesome, but apart from the amazing gun details, they seem to be using that "good from far, far from good" approach on the textures like in COD4.

p.s. Gameplay wise it looks very basic and uninspiring

Hey milhouse so much for no destructable enviroments eh ... ;)

Looks really good, Sony FPS fans should be happy with this :D

Looks amazing! Gameplay looks solid of course. Should easily blow away CoD4 single player.
I'm skeptical about them basically using the "Team Fortress" formula for the multiplayer, but at least it should be solid as well.

It's a shooter.
------
That helghast assault rifle has too much damn smoke, it covers the center of the screen and can't see anything, they need to decrease it.

But I for one can't wait to get my hands on it in 2009, gonna be awesome.

Graphics are pretty damn awesome, AI needs a complete overhaul.
Commented on 2008-07-19 09:42:46
great graphics, but a person new to dual analogue sticks would have no problem with that shitty AI... normal difficulty shouldnt be that easy
Commented on 2008-07-19 12:24:18
Incredible stuff.

I admit.
Commented on 2008-07-19 12:32:00
It is just another shooter - that is now clear. Maybe it has a great storyline?

Anyway, the AI must be improved. Suppressing fire? Flanking? Hiding until melee is justified? Taking cover? And for the player not just running in pre-defined paths...

The cover system also seems flawed - when you take cover you can still see over the egde meaning that half your head must be exposed and ready for a nice bullet penetration.

The steady flow of in-game dialogs are really nice. Graphics ok and the fast but smooth overall motion is to die for.

I have a feeling this is going to relive the reception of the first 1.. praised for graphics and nothing more. It does look stunning... although if you look past all the bloom and great use of dept of field the textures are actually pretty poor. The set pieces are nice.. hopefully they'll be a story there.

What is bad though is the AI..who just seem to stand their half the time in this new clip. Theres little point having a good looking game if that gameplays rubbish... and thats why i have a feeling this will relive the reception of killzone 1, as how many people in the know consider that a classic now?

If I had a PS3 (still much too expensive), I would probably pick this up. The graphics are good (still a little too dark for my liking), the AI needs improving (they can't shoot properly), animation is good (not euphoria-like though), storywise I have no idea. But I think it will be a decent shooter. I think it's a shame that Microsoft and Sony are hunting for exclusiveness, because the only people that suffer from it are the gamers.

Looking no better than CoD4 to me, worse even in gameplay terms.

indeed. It's just as easy as that..!

My biggest gripe with Killzone 1 was that the game technically/graphics wise asked too much of my ps2. With Killzone 2 for me it looks like they are aiming high with the graphics as well, but will not ask tóo much of the ps3.

I'm glad I will get a ps3 in 2 months! =) (next to my 360) : this, motorstorm 2, resistance 2, little big planet all look like they will entertain me, as well as Gears 2, banjo-kazooie and many more for my x360

If we only would have more time (and money!) to spent... ;)

I really like the innovation of the first person cover system. It's almost shooter overload! Killzone 2, Resistance 2, SOCOM: Confrontation, MAG
All look to be excellent AAA must-haves. And that's just the exclusives!

i like how everyone ignores the fact that the player has AI allies that ALSO draw fire, so you're NOT the only threat to the enemy AI, so whats so "stupid" about the AI? if YOU we're approached by 2 to 3 enemies and you're by yourself, which one are YOU going to flank? instead of watching a video and judging gameplay based on conjecture, READ the NEW previews from IGN and other gaming sites that have played the latest build..The Many BOSS battles, The Multiplayer aspect with its class system (sorta like team fortress except you can mix 2 to create a hybrid class) and playing other clans for Clan Points, alone shits on one hit kill fests like COD4, add vehicles (land and air based, including controllable drones) and special classes (auto turret planting engineers and stealthy spy units that can become invisible to the enemy) I think this game will rock FPS fans who don't dream of slobbing down lil' Bill Gates, not to mention COD4 nuts who can't adjust to a game without the crutch of easy 1 hit kills.

Don't ignore the fact that you are the one playing the game and the enemy should be aware that you are the smartest opponent and the one experiencing the game.
I guess it's acceptable that the AI not enhance the experience for you and instead worry about your cpu teammates equally or more than you

That being said, there's no excuse for your enemy to stand in the open and look foolish in general. Don't live in denial

It's Okay ^^ something it's has copy COD4 because I saw co - ordinates 1.M of the through and gameplay it's look like COD4. by the way I see to something it's look like GEARS OF WAR . I guess maybe it's both mix between COD4 & GEARS OF WAR, I think so^^ the graphic it's look really good but E3 2005 it's has better :-P(I know that's CG MOVIE ) well, maybe I'll buying it^_^ but I must look to review before.

    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (4 Hours ago)
