 When we were first shown Killzone 2 at E3 ,  the game looked amazing. Thought the video was shown in CG, people were still skeptical about the finish product. But now, I finally have my hands at Killzone 2, and its a game like no other this year.

Story: The game’s story continues off after the two previous games but this time, you, the ISA, are doing the invading. You play as Sergeant Tomas “Sev” Sevchenko, Sev is part of the ISA Special Forces Alpha Team who are responsible for capturing the ennemy leader Scolar Visari, the leader of Helghast forces and ruler of Helghan planet. The story is nothing special but its still has some originality.

8/10

Gameplay: The gameplay is what this game is all about. Killzone has a new original cover system called “sneak and peek” wich consist of covering behind and object in first person. The games shooting system is also very similar to Call of Duty 4  but it feels completely different. This makes  Killzone 2 a game very hard to get into in multiplayer but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be hooked, and good. Speaking of multiplayer, for those who don’t have online, you can easely go play skrimish with up to 15 bots. Perfect for those who want to play online, but can’t. Also the online component is called Warzone, wich allows you to play every game modes  back-to-back without going into a lobby. You can also only select one game mode for people that are picky or specific about what they want to play.

9/10

Presentation:  If you thought the gameplay was amazing, then you’re up for a treat. the visuals are outstanding, pushing the PS3’s power further than any game. The enviroment is also very well detailed as it is dectrutable. The death animation is also something to behold as it is like no other game. Killzone 2’s visual surpass everything right now and it’s going to be hard to surpass this beautiful game.

10/10

Obverall, althought the story may be a little weak compared to other games, the gameplay and presentation are what truly makes this game like no other. It’s not perfect, but it can definitely hold itself against other FPS of it’s kind like Call of Duty 4 and Halo. If you have a PS3 and like to play ether FPS’s or online, this is the perfect game for you.

Final score: 9/10
