A voice of reason. I want to check this game out, but the hype is just sickening. I peek in threads, see the spin, get dizzy and leave. Unrealistic expectations and hype will just ruin the experience for some potential buyers.
If you really want to check this game out.
Then go to Gametrailers, watch some trailers, take note on the gameplay, watch screenshots, stare at .gifs.
Just make sure to skip on the comments section.
Basically, create your own opinion on the game without all the spin.
What other people say shouldn't affect your enjoyment of the game when you put it in your PS3.
I have reviewed tons of games, and played many more since the late 70s. I am not fooled one bit by awesome graphics. Let me see how the gameplay is. That makes or breaks a game for me.
You could have all the bells and whistles in a game - online, multiplayer, great graphics, eye candy and the like, but if the controls suck, if the game is short, if it doesn't live up to the hype, it phails.
No jealousy coming from me and from a vast majority of folks who aren't sold that this game will be the next champ on the PS3. Sorry, but we've been on this train before - just wait until ___________ comes out and turns PS3 sales around.
Happy Squirrel has the best sentence in this entire thread: Not to mention that the first Killzone was heavily hyped back in the day as being a "Halo Killer" primarily because it had good graphics and was a PS2 exclusive ...
Just update it - Killzone 2 is heavily hyped as being a "Halo Killer" primarily because it has good graphics and is a PS3 exclusive.
