A GAME SO GOOD, I SIGNED UP JUST TO WRITE A REVIEW ABOUT IT

Do you remember how excited you where when you tore open your KILLZONE game for your PS2, only to be very disappointed? Well i sure as hell don't, i never even played the game! This is probably a good thing, because if i actually played it, i might not have gotten KILLZONE2, since KILLZONE seems to have.. well... sucked.

Due to the outstanding C that KILLZONE was given, many people have been cautious to buy KILLZONE2. Fear not my friends, KILLZONE2 is not the mediocer shooter its predecessor was, because beleive it or not, only 2 words can describe KILLZONE2: freaking awesome.

As soon as you start the game, you will notice the graphics right of the bat, so i'll just start with them. They are incredible. This game could possibly be the best looking shooter of all time, shunning games like Halo3  and daring games like Call of Duty 4 (or 5) to compete. It shows just how great having games on a Blu-ray disk is.

As you start the campain, you will be mezmorized by the detail of it all, but then pulled away as you are thrown into a heart pounding warzone (ever wonder where the name KILLZONE came from?) with spectacular gunfights that you must survive with a couple of fistpounding grunts reliable squad units at your side. As for your buddies, there great. Unlike the first KILLZONE, your mates are consistant and helpfull. They are intelligent for A.Is, shown by how they can actually find cover, chuck a grenade behind an enemys coer, then gun them down as those horrible helgast run for safety. Thankfully, those helgast are just as smart, if not smarter, than most of your friends. You could be gunning down some enemys in front of you when suddenly BAM! your enemy has flanked you, now you helplessly run for cover, and once you get there, some happy-go-lucky helgast throws a grenade right where you are cowering, and then opens fire on your sorry ass while you try to run for your life.

The enitre came is fast paced, with fire fights that are just the right lengths, and the choice of some great weapons. Speaking of weapons, they are well... great! Unlike some games like say.. halo3 (i don't care if i have a battle rifle, that guy has a ****ing sword!), you almost never feel at a disatvantage due to the weapon you have. Though the options for weapons may be small, the amount of detail put into each one is staggering. You might get so used to a single gun that you wont want to part with it, but don't worry, switching weapons never feels alien, and adjusting is easy.

After you kick the hell out of some helgast ass, your gonna wanna take the war and some ownage online. The online runs flawlessley, and seems to never get old. All 8 of the highly detailed maps (2 more coming out soon!) are perfect for the way KILLZONE online is played. Instead of a single game of deathmatch (called bodycount in KILLZONE) each game has alternations between several types of games. You could be defending your target on search and destroy, when suddenly the game changes to search and retreive (capture the flag/speaker), and now your racing to get the objective first and score a point for your team.

All and all, KILLZONE2 is awesome.

Finally PS3 has an exclusive that other system owners cant think of a reason to insult it. This is a game that you can shove into an Xbox owners face and say "take that fanboy!". Unfortunatly, every rose has its thorns, and in this case only one thorn. Even though there are many parts in the game where an A.I teammate must help you, their is absolutly no co-op, and not even split screen. Dont let this discourage you though, this is truly a magnifisent game. Master Cheif better watch his back, cuz if he doesn't, KILLZONE will sneak up behind him, and he will get KILLZOWNED.
