BBC hails Killzone 2 as the most immersive experience ever

Nick Doerr

The BBC warns you right away that when you "sit down in front of a playable level ... it is immediately clear that Killzone 2 will be one of the most cinematic and immersive games ever produced on a console." Those are some big words to describe an incomplete game! If only that were all, but the BBC continues its praise by assuring PS3 fans that Killzone 2 looks like something you'd only see on a high-end PC.

Not everything was rosy, though. The BBC criticized the incomplete build, stating the "game mechanics of the level I saw are not particularly innovative," and that overall "Killzone 2 is an archetypal shooter - a futuristic action title that draws on the symbolism of World War II to create a sense of familiarity." Throwing grenades still needs some work, and the hyper-realistic violence will probably spark more debate about the worn-out violence-in-videogames stance. We don't really care -- we just want to get our hands on this game!
