IGN's Killzone 2 Review! (I did not write this!)
21 August 2009 | by scottgamingninjaSee all my reviews

The single-player experience is a truly enjoyable campaign across the Helghast home world that will test your skills, particularly on the higher difficulty levels, and the game simply looks phenomenal for a console shooter. But perhaps the strongest segment of the game is the extremely deep multiplayer, which gives seven basic classes with which you can create your own customized super-soldier after performing your class-specific duties. Not only did Guerrilla achieve a milestone of delivering a great exclusive title for Sony's PS3, it delivered one of the better shooters to come along in a long time. Get your hands on this game.

PRESENTATION - 10/10 Everything from the first entrance onto the battlefield to the last cut scene creates a hectic, fun and fast-paced thrill ride through a warzone where each step you take could be your last.

GRAPHICS - 10/10 Phenomenal visuals prove that Guerrilla either met or surpassed that infamous E3 trailer. Some technical issues hold it back from being a completely flawless masterpiece.

SOUND - 9/10 7.1 channel sound captures every nuance of the battlefield from gunshots to screams along with a great soundtrack. Weakly delivered, curse-filled dialog (sans Brian Cox) could have been done better.

GAMEPLAY - 9/10 You'll have to get used to the firearms as well as the AI on both sides. More turret and vehicle sections would've been great, but outside of that, the single-player campaign is fun to play through.

LASTING APPEAL - 10/10 Multiplayer is extremely deep and has the added bonus of an offline skirmish mode. This is where you'll spend the majority of your time once the credits roll.

OVERALL - 10/10
