I'm coming up with this thread since i couldn't post one in the PS3 Group, and since i just wasted my damn time writing about this game, i'm going to post it in the main forum. I'm mostly going to concentrate on the multiplayer gameplay of the beta, just to let you guys know what this game is in for online-wise.

"No online shooter in the console market could possible claim to look better than Killzone 2, or feature more atmosphere and eye for detail."
-IGN.




...And yet this is only the beta. This is THE game to buy next year on February 27th 2009. Judging by uploaded videos of the beta alone, the graphics and the detail put into this game is just bloody f**king awesome. So many things within that game catch your eye, making the experience more & more atmospheric. Every bullet that hits an opponent will effect them, making them jiggle out bursts of blood. Every tile & pillar that gets hit, crumbles, 'Matrix' style. The pure movement effects when you fire & reload is so detailed, adding into the great feeling it gives when watching / playing it. I mean, there's even unnecessary features like travelling fog. There is a good strong epic dark war-type aura coming from this game.

Judging by the videos again, it seems that the game somehow allows more teamwork to be used. I would pin it on the structure of the maps, and the classes. Talking about the classes, here are Killzone 2's classes;

- Rifleman. Your main average Joe, best used for what the name says it is. Apparently there is more range of weapons for this class;

- Assault. This guy would be more of a tank. He has the extra health, and tends to be the Demolition / LMG guy;

- Scout. Invisibility. That's all i will say. A scout with a sniper rifle = potentially annoying foe;

- Medic. It's pretty much self explanatory. Health packs and reviving;

- Engineer. For making sure those mags are supplied around. Fixing & setting automated turrets is my favourite feature for this class, & for those who love setting traps;

- Saboteur. My favourite class. You get to cloak yourself as an enemy [so in their eyes, you are their team-mate]. Even your name appears as one of them;

- Tactician. I would say this class is the leader type. Throwing coloured smoke grenades at any place, determining where your team-mates may spawn. He also calls in Sentries [think of a COD4 helicopter].


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other points;

- The storymode uses a 'Lean & Peak' system, which will not be used within the multiplayer mode, as it was considered unecessary and a potential nuisance.

- There are many completely destructable objects / buildings within storymode, but only to a small extent in the multiplayer levels, otherwise it would just be insane.

Reviews of the beta, apparently say that this game is more of a dark, gritty, chuggy COD4, with exceptional presence, which is weird because one reviewer claimed that despite the fact that it has a more clunky feel, the gameplay itself is fast.

If there's anyone playing the beta, can you please describe in detail what certain aspects of the game are great & what needs development on. As i say again, my information is only from the videos i've watched, and the reviews i've read. All have been positive so far.

Heres a video of earlier death animations [make sure to watch in High Quality]:

Just make sure you do one thing, BUY THIS GAME.

Those classes SURE seem familiar.

Don't care much about graphics nor death animations, as long as it can recover from their glitch shit from their previous title (getting headshots on opponents and still up, yaok).

There were a few complaints I read about the campaign where their squad members kept dying. Typically they die after a good minute or two, but they make it seem like it was in seconds (maybe in Elite difficulty, I agree, they're shitheads). Only person that made me want to mute my TV and just jam to music was when Rico starts coming in and nonstop calling out HG to come out, only to get raided by bullets only to get slammed.

Best part of the whole damn game was when Rico kept getting headshot by the snipers on a certain level (the wasteland one).

Other than that, online is pretty sweet, haven't bother slapping on my bluetooth to talk because the majority of the time it's drunk guys making hilarious noise or little kids who keep fucking repeating, "I NEED A MEDIC, I NEED A GOODAMN MEDIC." Which is awesome because I was able to constantly teabag one of the kids and made him quit.

Anyways, nothing revolutionizing, but we needed a game that re-define gas masks in my opinion.

Edit: Now I think about it, Rico is indeed a giant bag of douche for what he did at a scene at the near end AND the ending.
