GD08: Killzone 2 direct feed trailer

GD08: Killzone 2 direct feed trailer

Sony had the great idea to put the whole press conference from a few days ago online on the PSN, and you can count on me to rip as much stuff as possible from these videos. Let's start with this little game called Killzone 2.


Gamer's Day trailer

Why couldn't they just edit their videos to release this trailer seperated.
Ah well, Blim thx alot, gonna add this to my video section on PS3.

PS. Great trailer, very intense and epic!

PS3 is starting to come into its own. Just sad it had a little bit of a slow start.

The motion blur adds a lot to how the game looks. I'm not entirely impressed with the environments though.

I agree, motion blur is probably one of the best additions in this gen. The environments look very colourless and generic though. Nothing really special about them.

Well I've decided I don't think too much of Killzone 2's graphics. But Resistance 2 looks freaking amazing to me. Can't wait for some direct feed footage of that, but I got a high quality off screen FLV, and I think it may be the best looking game I've ever seen. LOVE the Redwoods environment!

I downloaded the full ~980MB video this comes from off PSN, so boring, a lot of talk, the prerendered MS2 trailer, and no actual R2 footage!

The gameplay looks really dull.
It looks like KZ1 gameplay without the framerate problems.
The environments look boring as well.

If I'm going to play a mediocre FPS this gen, I rather make it HAZE.

I agree, it all looks like one giant warehouse district. Reminds me of the warehouse dock level in Black.

looks even better in 720p. most impressive looking shooter i've seen in a long long time. and one of the first FPS to excite me since pretty much half life 1.

Sony folks need to pay more attention on the gameplay portions they include in their trailers. This is definetly not the best footage of the game. We've seen better in gamersyde videos.

the gamersyde vids annoyed me since the guy kept punching air every 2 minutes...lol. best footage i've seen thus far (although considerably lower res) was on jeux-france. but tbh. the dark level with the lightning is still the best out of everything. just wish they released direct feed of that whole level.

It's INSANE how good the graphics are.
Commented on 2008-05-08 23:33:14
Looks as amazing as ever. And this is pre/Alpha code?
Commented on 2008-05-09 02:01:56
like I said before, this is the only fps Ive seen on a level graphically with crysis...crysis has more going on with physics etc but the atmosphere and artistic direction here is excellent....the environments look great and huge too
Commented on 2008-05-09 02:11:04
GFX look pretty good but it looks like it's going to be a shooting gallery, funnel down a tunnel type thing, kinda like COD4's singleplayer without the good production... yawn

What has been shown is very reminiscent of already released games. A "me too" offer in the genre with nothing new to the table.

COD4ish shooting? Check
Gear/R6 ish cover system? Check
Pretty Visuals? Check
Grey Palette? Check
Destructible objects? Check.

COD4 didn't invent that style of shooting, it's been around for years

Gear/R6 are a 3rd person cover system, which this game doesn't have, which I also find probably the best cover system that's come about this generation thanks to Gears

Grey Palette... this is probably the most questionable complaint everyone gives to war based games now. Last generation you would have never seen colors representing any genre. Color palette adds to any game, and this generation has seen companies taking that step. Grey palettes are fine

Destructible objects... we don't even know if this is true and probably won't be anything near the destructible tech Epic showed off


I think what this game will suffer from most, is coming out after Gears of War 2. Just like the first one.
Realistically G2 will be a technology powerhouse (in innovation), and this game is gonna feel far behind by the time it gets here

Yeah, it's only two years off the pace now.

This site is a fucking joke how people's opinions are hidden like this. It's his opinion if this game looks like shit. Why hide it? Ban me!

you know what? Simply because you have no idea what you are talking about, I'm gonna let you linger for a while.

PS3 is starting to gain momemtum it's almost got me convinced to buy one.

I'll also say that I'll always hold against this game that they BS'ed us with that E3 trailer all those years ago, it was really dirty.

honestly to leave this far behind GOW2 is going to have to look better than crysis...and from the tech they showed it doesn't at all...still looks great, but it would have to be a BIG step up from the first to smoke this

Exactly !

This is the only game apart from Gran Turismo 5 this generation that looks CGI-like when even running and controlled(not in the cut-scene I mean). Gears of War's cutscenes looked really CGI like but runtime was not, very pretty but not CG like. The main reason was the excessive use of depth-of-field in Gears' cutscenes which was absent from the gameplay. In KZ2, that finesse is present throughout and it shows...
