Excellent

The New Standard

All I can say is wow. Let me start off by saying that even if Killzone 2 had the worst music, control scheme, sound and A.I. It wouldn't matter because the graphics are so incredible. It is like playing a movie. Fortunately though Killzone does not rely solely on the graphics to keep the game afloat. The A.I is clever, and swarms of helgast always try to flank you and use grenades to flush you out. The sound is fantastic and the music does an excellent job of creating an atmosphere as chaos and desolation. I do however have some issues with the controls. Although there are several options the all but one of them involves using R3 for zoom, which can slow you down when you need to do some quick in and out in tight corners. The other scheme which uses L1 to zoom also require you to use L2 to stick to cover, which you need a lot, and using both of these not only feels awkward but starts to hurt your hand after awhile. Your squad mates are also annoying with their constant comments, and telling you to get to cover if you shot even once gets old quick. The story is decent but forgettable, but it hardly matters because the whole experience is so cinematic it really drives itself forward. Aside some minor annoyances this is a fantastic game, which I feel comfortable saying is the best looking shooter yet by far.

One of the best shooters I've played in along time, the graphics are beautiful the sound effects in the game are great the story is pretty good but a little short. Mutliplayer is even better! It's just all chaos bullets and grenades zipping past your head every second the maps are amazing and the gameplay is just pure fun.

The controls in this game feel different than most people are used to in games like cod4 for example and this seems to be what the majority of people who talk down about this game have problems with but I love the controls they have that heavy feeling to them you don't just turn and do a 360 degree spin like you do many other shooters but you get used to it just give it a chance.

everything else is amazing though.
