7th of April in the US, I'm not sure if I've seen any date for Europe? I know a couple of European stores has put it as the 20th of March in Europe, but that seems a bit early. All I've seen in European press releases is "Spring 2009", I might have missed something though.

Is that Lance Henriksen's voice at the beginning?

I've gone into blackout mode: this is the last bit of footage I'm going to watch until the game's release.

Looks awesome and I never played the first game, so I know I am in for a treat. As TheDj said above, blackout for me also.

Wow lookin' good, Riddick is a great character.

Best FPS on current gen? Hmm, quiet possibly so. Oh, and last gen too. Even if it is just an update. Really makes me wonder what all the fuss about KZ2 is about when this sleeping beast is around the corner.

No, It's april. But that's not bad. First Killzone 2 to keep me busy for a long time.

I don't think it's got the fanboy press. I know Riddick was popular, but it was no Halo in sales. Which is a shame as it's such a great game, technically and gameplay wise.

Awesome, plus its two games in one :)

Must buy.

Blackout for me too, hopefully it's coming out in March. First game I get full-price, for this year.

True, but correct me if I'm wrong when I say it had no MP and was pretty short...

I enjoyed it, but I guess for some people, the MP is the main reason for a purchase.

The multiplayer in this game, is actually kinda cool sounding. It's just like the Splinter Cell multiplayer.

You know, I played a little of the Darkness multiplayer. And the fun part of it was the shapeshifting anytime. But it was very Quake-like, so it was kinda archaic, and not great shooting.

This is the game I'm most looking forward this year (only maffia 2 can beat that). I hope it sells really well, because if it doesn't, there will be no more Riddick games (announced by the developpers).
The problem with this game is Vin Diesel. I mean I have the impression that people think that it is a Vin Diesel game (like 50cc games). But it's not. It's a Riddick game!!! And Vin Diesel fits perfectly in this game. Fingers crossed for the sales. I don't doubt it will be a great game.

I agree. I'm not a Vin Diesel fan and I don't think he's a good actor or anything, but the role as Riddick suites him perfectly, and is the reason why I'm buying it (not "buying it" in the sense of: purchasing something, but in the sense of: "being believable").

As for the game, it's not a technical masterpiece by any means..but it's servicable. The game lieing behind that though, is wonderfull!

I just checked some gameplay vids from MP modes and ...... i've been blinded by them. Talk about difference from SP to MP.....disguisting. They really should stick with SP.

The first one on PC was quite popular but I never played it. This one is not intresting me though ... There are much better games than this IMO

Great trailer I almost wished it was a movie :)

    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (1 Hour ago)

    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (2 Hours ago)
