You guys made some very interesting points about Killzone 2 in your gamersyde diary. I'll probably end up buying this one, but have lower expectations now. Shame to hear it's all looks and little content.

In motion, this is the best looking shooter out there. The animation, the explosions, really intense stuff.

You say it, in motion... The game looks amazing, but still, I see PS2 textures in many places, like in MGS4. But this is not a problem, the graphics looks great, thanks to ilumination, shadows, filters, smoke and particle effects, etc... Graphics are not only textures of course, but due to the power of PS3, I would like to see better textures in some games...
But I think, If you put there GOW2 textures... the framerate goes down XDD, they prefer smooth gameplay (That´s what I think)

PD: I don´t like the explosions. Somebody remember Explosions in Lost Planet? You know what I´m talking about

it's just the art direction, the ps3 is great at streaming textures(thanks to bluray, HDD and cell) e.g R&C, uncharted, rage etc. KZ2 uses texture streaming as well, they share technology with insomniac, naughty dog, the God-of-War devs, etc.

great video

really captured the essense of how multiplayer online can be

awesome

Games like killzone, halo, gears of war..they are all about multiplayer

sure story mode is important, but personally it is the multiplayer that people will be playing for longevity of the game, looks good so far, if this is the sign of how killzone multiplayer is, then it is going to be one sweet ass game

Am I glad I just bought the new PS3 80Gb dual shock 3. Kilzone 2, Infamous, Heavy Rain. Pretty damn good looking exclusives.

The faked online chatting was so freakin' cheesy, it let me hungry for a cheeseburga.

lol, they sound like the douchbags on cod4 and halo that take the game WAY too seriously and feel the need to tell everyone exactly what they're doing at any given moment. sad

as for killzone 2. i've said it before and i'll say it again. the only FPS im REALLY excited for. it may be cod4.5 with shinier graphics. but i LOVE cod4 so i cant really complain.

Looks like a plain old shooter to me. But just with good graphics and that's all it has going for it from all the videos I have seen.

The game looks great, but am I the only getting tired of seeing the same damn environment over and over? There better be more to it than this.

The latest Gamersyde Diary hasn't been too comforting either, though I think you described the problem almost all FPS's have. Linear and nothing now or exciting. But that doesn't mean it can't be a hell of a ride and for that, to me, two things are very important:

1) The gameplay/controls must feel good.
2) diversity of (INTERESTING) environments.

So far, Killzone 2 has shown boring, repetitive environments and if that doesn't change, I definitely won't get this game. In that regard they can learn a thing or two from the devs of Star Wars TFU. Gameplay isn't mindblowing, but the journey from one fantastic environment to the other really lifts that experience.

Edit: Forgot about MP though. If that turns out the be better than COD4, It will be a must buy. :)

you clearly havnt played much cod4 or halo 3 then...lol, its rare, but people are THAT DAMN CHEESY online.

this game is basically a prettier version of CoD4 to me. and thats by no means a bad thing. it looks just as instense and exciting, if not more so. and if the whole game can keep this awesome pacing im definately buying it.

the promised co-op, multiplayer vehicles and bots just makes the deal all the more sweeter. it may not innovate, but then i cant think of a FPS that has in the past 5 years, as long as its a solid experience tho that shouldnt matter.

but i agree, kinda sick of seeing this level over and over. but then i dont want the rest of the game spoiled either. so its a lose lose situation for me. maybe they should show off that original lighting stage again.
