Trivia

There is an easy way to distinguish ISA weapons from Helghast weapons. ISA weapons feature a green scope/eye-piece (if present) and have the standard fiery colored muzzle-flash. Helghast weapons feature a red scope/eye-piece (if present) and have a light/sky blue colored muzzle-flash. Helghast weapons also commonly feature a barrel-like magazine as opposed to the ISA weapons which feature the standard shaped magazines seen on most modern day weapons. See more »

Goofs

When Templar and company speed away in stolen Helghast Attack Boats, they are chased by guided missiles fired at them from a Helghast soldier with a 3-barreled launcher. This is impossible, because everywhere else in Killzone this launcher is found as RPG - a weapon whose rounds have no guidance. See more »

Quotes

Sergeant Rico Velasquez: Now this is my favorite kind of weather station. Look at all these fun toys.
[Upon entering the room which was previously occupied by 3 recently "retired" Helghast Elite Troopers, where an entire cache of weapons could be found]

overall this game was very good
18 June 2006 | by sausageroll24See all my reviews

very good but i don't think it warrants an "as good as halo 2" comment. i mean i haven't played halo 2 but i have played the first one and i enjoyed that a lot more than killzone. I'm not by any way degrading killzone in the slightest .... .... .... i just think that maybe it could have done with a little more to the characters movement and capability with guns. I do agree that the enemies were quite dull in the fact that they only said a few lines but I'm sure Sean pertwee made up for that...and the way your woman teammate always and in such a VERY English/new Zealand accent says....."Hellghast!" about 5 seconds after u have killed the hellghast enemy. its not really much use is it to be honest, so i thought this game deserved an 8/10 rating. definitely worth buying if you find it cheap anywhere. . . . despite all the little technical hitches along the way. i saw a demo of killzone on the ps3 that they were showing at the E3 show and it looks amazing. although it turned out just to be some fmv of what the designers wanted the game to look like. but nonetheless. if it did look like it did on the video then I'm sure that we will be in for one hell of a good ride with killzone on the ps3. Happy Gaming Guys 'n' Gals
