Amazon.ca Product Description
Two years after the Helghast assault on Vekta, the ISA are taking the fight to Helghan. Their goal: to capture the Helghast leader, Emperor Visari, and bring the Helghast war machine to a halt.You assume the role of Sev, a battle-hardened veteran and a member of the special forces unit known as the Legion. For Sev and his squad, the invasion of Helghan is just beginning. Tasked with securing Pyrrhus, the Capital City, they quickly discover that the Helghast are a formidable enemy on their home planet. Not only have they adjusted to the planet¿s hostile conditions, they have also harnessed a source of power they can now use against the ISA.
Get ready to take on the full strength of the Helghast war machine from a dramatic first-person perspective with Killzone 2 for PS3. From Guerilla Games, this much anticipated follow-up to Killzone for PS2 and Killzone: Liberation for PSP drops you right into the boots of battle hardened special forces soldier Sev. Set two years after the aborted Helghast assault on Vekta, the action opens with your ISA Legion squad deployed behind enemy lines on the Helghan's unforgiving home turf.
Despite the smooth character animations and swift-thinking AI behind each individual Helghan, their planet itself may be the most deceptive opponent that you face. Unlike other game environments that serve as nothing more than a visual backdrop, the devastating Helghan climate takes a notable toll. And, worst of all, the Helghans know exactly how to use the planet against you.
The in-your-face perspective comes to life as you take aim with exotic new weapons and mainstays from the previous games, including the M82-G assault rifle. And you can now drive an array of rugged, sometimes strange, vehicles that expand the gruesome possibilities of war.
Guerilla Technology in a Terrifying, Realistic World
Guerrilla's unique visuals and deferred rendering technology ensure that even the ugliest situations on Helghan are beautifully lit. Ambient occlusion and accurate shadow casting from a variety of light sources combine with gritty textures, detailed environments, and studio-grade special effects to help complete the realistic, Hollywood experience of this first-person shooter.
Real-time cutscenes, full-screen anti-aliasing, motion blurs, and internal lens reflections all bring you into the fold and work to maximize the hardware capabilities of the PS3. And the audio experience is no less impressive. 7.1 surround sound capability lend a truly dynamic sound element to your experience, while audio occlusion with wave tracing means that you can hear the difference between indoor and outdoor firefights.
Chaotic Multiplayer Drama Online
While single-player mode lets you take on the unique challenges of 11 fully developed levels, online play lets you engage with up to 32 players at a time, bringing the gritty, realistic chaos of war to a whole new level.
Other multi-player friendly enhancements in Killzone 2 include in-game clan management, a match wagering system, and the ability to integrate new information and track friends and enemies with the community at Killzone.com.

I was lucky to take part in the closed beta, Phase 2 & 3 out of 3 phases.
the changes from Phase 2 to 3 were huge and improved so I'm confident the final product will be even better.
I've played both Killzone 1 and Killzone: Liberation and so I'm comfortable with the Killzone Universe.
I was never a big fan of Killzone 1. It was good but not great. It wasn't terrible either.
The improvements are astounding compared to Killzone 1.
When I was in the KZ2 beta I put in KZ1 to see the differences and enhancement they've made for the sequel and I'm not over-exaggerating when I say it's a HUGE improvement. I also put in CoD4 and Resistance 2 since they are both FPS games to compare with KZ2 and Killzone 2 is just better and more solid.
The graphics are simply breathtaking and the controls are very spot on. The guns feel good in your hands and the gameplay is very fun. It really does feel like you're in a war zone when you're playing against 31 other players online.
The "Dynamic Objectives" is simply awesome. You no longer finish a round log out then wait and go into a different mode. It's one long continuous mode that happens right after one another without leaving the game. So it will be Capture, Assassinate, Protect, ect. all in one round of play. Of course you can create your own room with your own tailored Modes if you wanted, as well. Or join other rooms that have your favorite modes.
The online stats and upgrades are awesome. You can mix and match your class to your desire.
But you can only hold 2 different classes with each one character.Read more ›
Even for gamers that don't usually do FPS. A must have for PS3 owners and one of my favourite games on the system.
1. The game looks extremely good. So good that I can honestly say there is no other shooter out there that looks like KZ2. Not even MW2.
2. The gameplay mechanics are terrific. Actions are a little slow, but that does not slow down the game in anyway and actually feels real. For example, you move slower if you have a Sub machine gun and faster if you have a shotgun.
3. I have played the game 253 hrs online. It is very very good. It's by and large a game in itself and is very addictive.
The only disappointments for me were
1. The only flaw for me was that the story is not explained at all. All the more confusing because the Killzone universe has an excellent story which can be learned at the game's website.
2. None of the DLC is free. I expected atleast some DLC to be free, after all they are just giving new multiplayer maps.
The game does a wonderful job in terms of atmosphere: you'll never feel like you're not in a war-torn city where every inch is being fought for step by bloody step. The graphics are nothing spectacular now, but at thier time and even now Killzone 2 is a very attractive looking game.The gameplay is typical first person shooter, and the formula manages to be fun for a majority of the game. However, towards the end the game begins to feel a little drawn out and I found myself wanting to reach the conclusion quickly.
The biggest negative for this game is going to be the difficulty - which the developers didn't quite nail spot on. I seldom found myself stuck on the first playthrough (Despite the fact I started on the hardest difficulty available), finding the game incredibly easy until the final boss fight where it seemed the difficulty of the game was ramped up by x10. I spent four hours trying to beat one section of the game, something no gamer ever wants to do.
In terms of sound, the game sounds great. The voice overs were well-done, the music was fitting but was not the overpowering cacophony of noise I despise in othergames. While this is nitpicking, the gun shots could have been better than what they were.
All in all, Killzone 2 is a great game. It falls a little short of being amazing however, due to the simple fact the gameplay does get a little stale towards the end of the game and you find yourself being increasingly aggressive just to get to the end. The multiplayer is undoubtably one of the best, and will give you hours more fun after the game is complete. Players looking for a challenge though might want to look somewhere else.
