PS3 Halo-Killer Killzone 2 To Be Shown At E3 - Page 9

The people who love and praise the Halo series outnumber you all.

Halo is Generic? No every other FPS up UNTIL Halo has been generic (with a few exceptions) Halo drastically changed what it takes to be a great FPS. The Multiplayer maps are simply amazing, the three Halo 3 Multiplayer maps I've played are a w e - i n s p i r i n g!! They break away from the normal rooms corridors and stuff you see on a lot of other Multiplayer Maps in other games.

It's like being a FPS vegetarian. You might not like how Halo tastes or think it's wrong what they do to the grunts. But I'll be damned if you aren't totally outnumbered on this. I like my FPS to have some meat. Until I see one better than Halo I'll have to ask you to keep your game-diet to yourself.

Here have a Sticky Grenade.
Dude, I am totally with you. I had this kid in my class who was adamant that the Halo series sucked, but then argued continuously that it was going to become a PS3 game. ... I didn't even know how to respond. Halo 1 was phenomenal, even though it started out as a MAC GAME THAT WAS A RTS, THEN BOUGHT BY MICROSOFT, TRANSFORMED INTO A FPS, AND THE PORTED TO A CONSOLE, NOT ONLY THAT, BUT A NEW ONE, WITH A VERY SHORTENED TIMELINE. Halo 2 was also given a shorter timeline than originally thought. God, and then we get people saying that Halo 3 sucks, because the graphics suck, and everything. THAT WAS A TWO MONTH OLD BETA! God. People suck.

No details whatsoever about the game have been released, but it's already not a Halo-killer no matter what, apparently. That's what they said about Halo in reference to Goldeneye and Perfect Dark.

CorporalAris: There is not much that can be done concerning graphics after a beta release; I have yet to see proof of it. The time between the beta release and launch is specifically there so that the developers can work out bugs and troubleshoot the game...not make the graphics better. Stability is the difference between beta and a release-quality program.

Compared to the same $800 for a Premium plus a few years of Xbox Live (online gaming being free on PS3) plus the extra controller plus a "couple games", I'll stick with the PS3. Don't forget the whole Blu-Ray player thing...people are paying a minimum of $400 for a standalone BD or HD DVD player, so you can't say it's never worth it.

At least the EU isn't taking action against Sony or Nintendo specifcally citing reliability issues with their respective consoles. Or did you forget?

I think we need to wait and see what the games are like before making a decision like that.

Yes I am saying it's not worth it because I don't think HD of any kind is all that, especially not after dropping close to $1200 for a decent HDTV, so $800 + $1200 + about $150 in tax so I can see leaves blowing in the background? $2150... No thanks, thats a down payment on a new car or getting some equity into my home to make even more money, so until there's a price break on the PS3 or the 360... not worth it... and kill zone wasn't exactly a groundbreaking game if I remember correctly... Go Wii!!!

And another thing why do people keep bringing up 360 as a rebuttal to my arguments, I haven't mentioned the 360 at all and in fact in the former paragraph have said it's not worth it, stop bringing up the 360 people!!!

woteva sony does, mr gates will go and do something better, like gran turismo, microsoft did forza which was more realistic than GT.

i think sony lost a lot of customers when they messed around with the release date of the PS3, cuz i know a few people that were playstation fanboys, but went out and bought 360's and say that it is the best console out there
LOL at Forza!

Seriously...Forza 1 vs GT3/GT4 was a joke...I haven't played Forza 2...but Gran Turismo is just an Epic series...

No, rating a game that was released 3 years ago using today's standards is not valid. We were talking about the Xbox and PS2 games, not the PC ports of said games. Your rating is for the PC version and it is being compared to PC games out today as well as what reviewers expect of games today. No one is going to deny that the game hasn't been changed. Compared to other PC games today it does not really compare. As a PC gamer I agree with that. But you simply cannot use that rating and just say that that should be the rating for the Xbox version as well.

You think if Nintendo officially released Super Mario Brothers for PC, with no major changes just as Halo 2, and then reviewers rated it by using today's standards of things like in depth game play, detailed graphics, etc. that our rating would be valid? Of course not. And if you can't see the difference between rating an Xbox game from 2004 and its PC port from 2007, then this is a pretty one sided argument.



You hear about problems but there is no way 30% of the entire population of manufactured 360s fails. Until proof is released, there is absolutely no reason to believe that. I don't think people realize how large 30% is.



We get that you don't like it but millions would disagree with you. I was a PC gamer first and yes, the game definitely has weak spots especially when compared to PC titles but it has matured quite a bit since it was released. In terms of the single player campaign and its expansive multiplayer.
Just because a few million do something don't make it right....(Nazi's anyone?)
Millions buy cigarettes...Is that right or smart? No, but it's "cool" to do when they first try it...Millions buy Britney spears cds....Millions voted for Bush...


Halo 2 pc was one of the biggest hyped games this year(was originally coming out last summer but held back for Vista) and it's an average game(as shown in ALL reviews), and would have been the same 3 years ago when everyone was addicted to Unreal Tournament 2004, Battlefield 1942 and preparing for DooM 3.....Everyone knows how amazing that was on PCs yet the xbox version was terrible(i owned both)...By console standards they thought it was a good game but compared to the real FPS market, PCs, it was barely average, and the graphics aren't that much worse than some of the newer games, though there are a few that blow everything out of the water....
Also i never compared Halo and Killzone directly, though i said i preferred KZ over halo, it was based on story and not the actual game. I prefer more realistic war type fps' to sci fi themed ones.

KZ's single player was more entertaining and gripping, where as halo was boring and had holes... The main reason Halo got such high ratings was Multiplayer where Killzone didn't have one i believe, maybe i'm mistaken about that, but when it was released all praises where for MP and the SP was dogged for alot of things but people ignored that because the MP made up for it....o them.


Edit: Also the only people saying this and the previous game are "Halo Killers" are the gaming media...NOT the developers/publishers........
