Hey Everyone,

Here at Guerrilla headquarters we have been eagerly anticipating the launch of the Killzone 2. Today is that day. It is a fantastic occasion where we finally put the game in the hands of the people who have been so very supportive and vocal about the game all this time. Thank you for your support! We really hope you will enjoy your time with the game and are looking forward to joining you in online matches. If you see anyone with a ‘GG’ in front of their names, go easy. It’s us.

I got it home and didn’t play it right away because I wanted to savor it. When I was good and ready I fired it up…and was blown away.

Most incredible sound and visuals I’ve ever experienced in a game. It really feels like you’re on the wrong end of a war. If you don’t have a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, do yourself a favor and invest in one for this game. Also KZ2 appears to be really pushing the PS3 hard with my 60GB fan’s going full speed in a cool room.

I played through a few levels and turned it off. Yes, I’m going to make the SP campaign last by playing it in pieces like I did with MGS4. I’m not touching MP until I finish the campaign. This game really is a huge achievement, and it needs to be appreciated. Even the “credits” option from the menu is incredible.

11/10. Also, for you CoD4 nuts, go ahead and rush in every scene. You will die. Alot.

Sony, you need to moderate the blog. There is an AD in my Blog.

(Suppose despite the blatant sales pitch hear, thank you Guerilla, for developing a well made game)

I have yet to pick up my pre-ordered copy… But, I am looking EXTREMELY forward to playing it!

I played the online beta, and me and my cousin stayed up until 7:00 A.M. taking turns on it! (Yeah, we were THAT hooked) I didn’t really like the single player demo though, I thought that the level they “showed off” was boring, un-eventful, and short, BUT from what I’ve seen in other videos and stuff, the rest of the single player experience truly is breathtaking! I’m going to be plaing single player and online for a while once I get this game, because (especially with the beta) I am now officially addicted!

This game is incredible. I had faith in you guys from the very beginning! Thank you for all your combined efforts and hard work in delivering us such a great game, especially under all the hype and pressure from the gaming community, which is constantly full of cynicism.

This is one of the best “CRAFTED” games i’ve ever played. Thank you so much!!

Got the game today, seems pretty fun. But I must say I’m REALLY disapointed with the controls. It’s very hard to aim online and it’s just a cluster F. Battlefield Bad Company is still WAAAAY more fun and although I’ll certainly be giving this game plenty of time to see if I can adapt I really don’t even want to. Initial impressions are: awesome graphics, sounds. BAD controls.

Thanks GG guys I downloaded your demo and like the looks of the game, it is a lot better than the other space combat game out there… more realistic.

I hope to pick up a copy of the full game to have a disc version handy…

Man, I just wished I had &60.00 plus the tax to pay for it. And what’s worst I can’t keep up with all these new games coming out due to the Financial Crisis and Credit Crisis

I took my 15 minute break this morning just so I can run to Best Buy and pick up this game. I don’t need to wait to play once I’m off work. …and no, my manager doesn’t know I’m spending my work time here at the PlayStation blog on my iPhone. :)

+ Deviation on February 27th, 2009 at 4:05 pm said:

Killzone 2 has an unacceptable deadzone on the right analog stick while aiming when playing the single player game. This absolutely must be addressed in a patch – and *FAST*.

The game is already getting a reputation for poor controls and controller lag all because of the ridiculous deadzone that is present.

Fix it!

@ Hermen,

Any ideas about when or if we will see more/new maps for the multi player.

With out a doubt one of the best games I have ever played. I am not done with the campaign but it is already starting to take the spot of Metal Gear Solid 4 as my favorite game yet.

You guys and gals at Guerrilla have out done the entire industry with this one. Thanks for the 4 years of hard work.

We also thank you Guerrilla Games. Althought we hold our breaths, finally our dreams happened. Which was to have Killzone 2 in our hands thanks to all of you. Beside, you guys did an awesome job in Killzone 2.

You all added and gave your fans every single detail they expected from any other shooter game. However, we wish you guys to have a beautiful and nice vacation after an great machine game. Because “i guess” that sice you guys started developing the game, there was no vacation for anybody at Guerrilla Games.

Thank you very much; Hermen Hulst and Arjan Brussee, Jeff R. Chris M. and TJ C. (for heads up), Victor Z, Geert D, JB, Seb D, Mark V, Steven Ter H, and for last but not least everybody at Guerrilla Games, SCEE, and SCEA.

For those who have played the retail version of KZ2, how is the controller input lag? I was watching vidz from YouTube of people getting ~5 secs of delay on the KZ2 demo. I am able to replicate the results myself on the demo. I wonder if it’s different for the retail version. Shout out to anyone who can test this!

gg from GG!
