    The Killzone 2 Thread

    In a similar vein to Abvance's SFIV thread, i figured we might as well have a Killzone 2 one now that people are starting to receive the game.

    Feel free to post thoughts, tips, multiplayer team ups etc.

    Been playing it a coupla hours now and so far, so very good!

    I bought the steel cased editon and recieved mine this morning. Great game, but are others having problems with online mode as I get many errors in login screen so can't connect half the time?

    havent tried online yet myself, sounds like a server issue which i guess will be resolved.

    yeah hopefully, single player mode is great! Once i finish single player mode, I will play it on a harder difficulty. The online mode is pretty good aswell but need to unlock guns, costumes etc. I may make a clan soon as I've reached the general position in online mode (which wasn't hard) so any1 interested in joining?

    Same here cant get online but prob the sever will go active tomorrow.

    But having fun destroying the computer bots. .

    I'm campaigning on veteran mode, 1st hour in and it's fantastic so far. Seems very immersive.

    Feels and looks alot like COD4 modern warfare - the weapons feel and act similar aswell. Little bit of GOW style cover and characterisations thrown in for good measure.

    Not tried online as my isp's service is very laggy.

    Haven't bought the game, looks good but still prefer CoD, nice to start a trend btw.

    Got mine from Play earlier today, not had a chance to play it yet, will do in a couple of hours.

    PSN - Hubba-EX

    I think the servers are down for a while.

    Apparantly as the official release date isnt until tomorrow they are applying some last minute patches to the online game, cant see it being any better tomorrow when all and sundry try to play online!!! i remember when COD4 first launched, total nightmare for about 2 weeks!!

    I'm sure you'll succumb eventually, when the price drops

    I'm tackling it on veteran. figured it would be a similar level to veteran on CoD.

    Yeah I'm playing on veteran mode aswell. Just got past 'destroy the arc' or something. On the 3rd level I think.

    Great game, I'm not paying too much attention to the story as it seems pretty thin tbh.

    chris_corbett;4500913

    How you finding it on veteran then? Either of you played online yet?



    Doesn't seem too harsh on veteran - and I'm not even a big FPS player. I completed COD5 on hard a while back and that feels a similar level difficulty-wise.

    Not played online yet cos my broadband is slow so I usually lag. I'll give it a go though.

    I like how you can cook a grenade, controls seem pretty good. The melee button (L1)is awkward on the left shoulder if your half way between holding the button next to(L2) it for cover.

    Can you knife opponents? a knife shows up in the bottom left with your grenades each time you respawn. I can only do a gun-melee.

    did anyone else who ordered from Play actually get the 'exclusive' PS3 theme? i havent heard anything, even after receiving the game from them.

    Tell you what's funny, all the other characters look a foot taller than you when your character speaks to them, my eyeline in the game seems to meet my squadmates' chin lol. Some good animation on the bad guys you're shooting at. I liked that big dude you get to kill with all those pipes on his backpack rupturing in the 2nd level.

    Some well hidden explosive barrels and tanks laying about the levels. Make one hell of a bang, love how they get pierced and then start to roll across the floor before exploding.

    What button do you pull out the knife with?

    chris_corbett;4501097

    Yeah, i was thinking the same about the difficulty,And i like the … Yeah, i was thinking the same about the difficulty,And i like the controls, they're a bit different but they work well once you get use to it. Yeah you can knife opponents, you have to pull the knife out, which means putting your gun away, which is really annoying.



    I actually changed my controls to 'Alternate 2' :thumbsup:which I prefer as it is very similar to the controls of Resistance 2 which I enjoyed. The online mode is working perfectly now and there are many objectives to play. There are also alot of people playing muyltiplayer at the moment so not looking foward to tommorows actual release day.......
    Anyway about the clan, what should it be called?

    Dindn't like the UK in HubbaBubbaUK

    Anyway, Hubba-EX is my new proper one with trophies etc ad me bro. - I am only using the old one for the COD games now as I cant be asked to re-rank again.

    Regarding the eyeline - it is like that in most FPS games as the camera is placed on the chest and not the actual eyeline. You will notice it in COD as well.

    But I wouldn't recommend you actually looking for it as you can't unsee it after and could get annoying.

    Have you checked your spam or junk mail box as it could have went their, think i received mine yesterday or the day before

    If you dont have it let me know and will post my code up for you just in case they have issued a generic code to everyone rather than individual ones

    Received my copy today but have been working late so just finished doing the first 3 levels and have to say am very impressed with the game so far. Just started on normal difficulty for now then move up to the hard setting to grab the trophies.

    Not tried the online mode yet but if anyone fancies a game my PSN is dave5182

    God day'mn you Killzone 2!

    What a fantastic game. Was up till 4am this morning playing online multiplayer and have got the bags under my eyes to show for it AND I'm all behind like a cow's tail. Did ok for myself, came 3rd overall on a couple of levels which pleased me.

    What's even better is that my broadband is a weak 2.3 meg and lags bad on XBL - but my online playing was FLAWLESS. Played for a good 3-4 hours straight in a full 32-man lobby continuously.

    **** just got real. A HUKD clan is much needed.

    no sign of it in any of my inboxes. could you PM me your code and will give it a shot.

    hey you guys, got mine yesterday, and the campaign is immense!! online is pretty good, takes a bit of gtting used to but otherwise reaslly good. Im on general rank now so i can make a clan!! what should we call it?
    my firsst game got 29 for 14!!! loving it!! ranked up in my first game!!!

    chris_corbett;4506840

    Yeah so are we going to set up a clan?



    Yeah will do but been college all day so didn't have the chance, the 'alternate 2' controls just changes the positon of aim to L1 and hand combat to R3 which is better. Just played online today again and is quite hard, i get ranked 4 if im lucky but usually 8.
    whats your PS names ppl, my 1 is lucozade91

    chris_corbett;4506840

    maybe. I'm thinking it would be hella fun working in squads with people you know from here as part of the 16 a-side matchups.

    How does the MP compare to CoD?

    Hold's it's own up against it - infact it's scarily close to MP COD at times. Kinda feels similar. The weapons do aswell.

    it's robtallica

    Looks like I might be on it quite a bit in the coming months. The maps looked pretty huge to me. I prefer the close-quarter stuff tbh. There's a good variety in there:thumbsup:

    what should the three letter tag be for the clan? Or if sum1 else wants to set it up, i don't mind

    Just call the clan 'hot'

    ok I will set it up tomorrow and invite you, if any1 else wants to join, provide PS names:thumbsup:

    I'm thinking of calling it LMS-Last Men (instead of man) Standing

    or NNH- No Noobs Here:w00t:

    let me know what you think and I'm not joking of the above^^

    just got this through from shopto.net, only ordered it yesterday afternoon.

    I'm up for joining a clan if one gets set up

    Wot do you think of the above names or do you want to link it to hotukdeal as others suggested? Any suggestions for names?

    Who wants to join:
    So far I have Chriscorbett, robtallica.....any1 else we need 16 players i think
