Killzone 2 NEW patch

Forums - Sony Discussion - Killzone 2 NEW patch

Mixed results on the forums regarding the control tweaks. Some players say that nothing changed, other say that they feel better... I suppose the tweaks were so subtle that we're seeing a textbook placebo effect in many cases :)

I am away from home for a few days, then I'll repeat a few measurements with stopwatch and see if I can find measurable differences in the acceleration.

Okay I have a question some what off topic, but with THQ laying off testers, as well as other game companies...

...how do you guys feel about getting games that go out not thoroughly tested? Cause some of those bug fixes in 1.20 seem like they should have been caught BEFORE release.

 

 Seems to have become the unfortunate norm

It became one of the unfortunate norms when Microsoft entered the videogame market and we started to have HDD in the consoles. It is one of the reasons I'm happy Nintendo doesn't allow patches on their system.

 

by next gen they will, one patch would have make me stick to my wii would be brawl online, but well that never happen.



It does play differently, definitely. Not as much weight , Faster turning, Quicker Gun response, Deadzone has been tweaked,



From the people that have been able to intelligently word their thoughts on the official forums, the two biggest changes appear to be that the deadzone is a wee bit smaller so the accel feels more linear now, and there is less inertia when turning so you're less likely to overcorrect when aiming -- the crosshairs stop when you stop. Otherwise, the "feel" is the same.

Essentially, the tweaks are so minor that if you didn't have a problem before, you probably won't notice the change now, and if you did think it was a problem before, this should make the crosshair a bit more representative of what you intended to do and less erratic.

Single player plays differently to what it was pre 1.2

 

FFS can a FPS not be even a little bit original?  I like the controls because they are different and a challenge to perfect.  Hopefully they didn't fuck with them too much

i never notice changes to be honest



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

Why did they patch the controls? They were fine. Too many idiotic whiners who complained because they were no good at the game and that it actually takes skill. Oh well, I'll see what the new ones are like tomorrow.

It's apparently out in Europe (should be ready tomorrow in the USA).

 

I've heard that they have tweaked the controls a little bit. Is there any European poster who could give us some updates on it ?

 

Thanks

 Can the haters claim a victory?

It was fixed in a week.... So obviously it wasnt all that big of a deal.

Funny because playing the demo for me guaranteed one less sale purely based on the frustration of zoomed in aiming.  I would guess they realised there were people who had an issue and tweaked accordingly so we can enjoy the game too.  It shouldn't make any difference to such a skilled gamer like yourself to adapt or are you going to whine now?

This small tweak will bring some extra sales in my opinion, I'll be buying once I've retried them on my friends PS3.



haters won with the control.I haven't played it with the patch yet but people are claiming now it's a COD clone.Thanks to haters the game became noob friendly probably
