Killzone 2 changes minds

We quiz people before and after seeing Sony's mega-game to see if expectations match reality

TODO alt text

For the last two years, Sony has had to live with the bickering. One voice says "Killzone 2 trailer stomped all over Halo 3 and everything else." Another shoots back, "It was totally fake, you idiot! Pre-rendered. There's no way the final game can look that good!" The first retorts, "Nuh-uh! Sony said it was really what the PS3 can do!" And then it all devolves into a flame war about who sUXXorZ and who can't spell and random posts about where you can get super-hot videos of drunk teen babes sharing a popsicle, but you get the idea: people feel strongly about all this.

So we planted ourselves outside the doors of a local sushi restaurant, where Sony finally gave the press its first look at Killzone 2, live and in real time. We questioned folks on the way in about what they expected to see and on the way out about what they actually did see. Then, we compressed their wisdom into atwo minuteinfobomb and slapped it in below. Did the game live up to the hype?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
