There is no doubt so no game as ever been as hyped as Killzone 2 before its release, sometimes to the point that there was seemingly no way that the developers could ever manage to achieve their goal. Well now that we have the retail version in our hands, we can say that technically this is the most advanced game available on any console as of now, which is quite an achievement to say the least. In terms of gameplay too, while the game doesn't really reinvent the wheel, it's still a very polished title. The story itself isn't anything to talk about, and the characters themselves are for the most part forgettable, but it doesn't matter in the slightest. Killzone 2 is a must have for any shooter fan out there. Update: Second and last part is up.
