Trivia

The Helghast weapons have lost their blue muzzle-flash of the original game, being replaced with the fiery color similar to that of the ISA weapons. Most of the Helghast weapons have also lost their red eye-piece, with the major exception being the Sniper Rifle, which retains it's red scope. See more »

Another take, perhaps?
7 March 2009 | by VozAltaSee all my reviews

Truth is I got a bit disappointed as well when I got my hands on Killzone 2 when it came out. We all expected tight controls and flawless online-gaming from what we've read in previews and articles. Long story short: expectations were too high.

However, as of today a patch has come out fixing the dodgy aiming and Killzone 2 now much resemble what most of us have been playing for the past year. It's a kick-ass game. Forget your demo-experience, you cried out your prayers and Guerilla listened and blessed.

That needed to be said first of all.

What Killzone 2 is: is a gritty, dark and extremely detailed first-person shooter with an intense campaign and a rewarding multiplayer experience. It's nothing new but a classic action shooter with the proper ingredients. Very macho, not very subtle. It's basically war on another world between what we'd recon as human outcasts and an retalliation force. It's very cruel and graphic, but above all it's a damn good shooter.
