Reviews are beginning to appear for Guerrilla Games' upcoming first-person shooter, Killzone 2
, a PS3 exclusive that has received a great deal of hype over the past several months. The reviews are mostly complimentary, but not overwhelmingly so; Ars Technica says it has "some of the best graphics yet seen on the PS3," and is a "solid take on the war-gaming genre
." They also acknowledge that this is the latest game being held up as a standard for how good PS3 games can be, though the PS3 may not need such validation anymore
. Edge Magazine is critical of the story, saying, "you could play the levels in random order
to little ill-effect," but found the gameplay redeeming enough to warrant a 7/10. Concerns were raised early about the quality of the controls, but Guerrilla Games has affirmed that no changes will be made
. Though the game won't be out for about a week yet, rumors of some fairly typical DLC plans
are already cropping up. Giant Bomb recorded some video showcasing Killzone 2's multiplayer
a while back.
