I keep a rotation of about 3-4 games going and "my next 10" stacked aside. I play about 4 hrs a day so sadly, some games like Alone in the Dark or Endwar, may never get played unless we have a dry spell on quality releases.

Have already started Killzone 2 and don't see why the hate on the controls tbh. The only complaint I have is some of the weapon sights are as shitty as WWI rifles would be, cover system could be a little better and co-op campaign would've been a added bonus.

hrmm, never played the demo so I assume thats the case then since I was expecting horrid controls after 2-3 of you in here commenting on it.

I tweaked the sensitivity to 15-20% cause default had to much whip but after that I think the controls have been nearly spot-on. I've only played the first 3 chapters though.

I'm rather impressed with some of the AI as well. Even with the sniper rifle, they will strafe or shift cover if you take more than a second or two zeroing in.

Still, KZ2 looks to be just another quality shooter that the story is just filler and training for their excellent multiplayer. Like Halo, Gears, Resistance, CoD before it.. I don't understand the FPS genre hype.

i don't understand it either . KZ2 just another generic shooter that brings nothing new to the genre .. i do not see why this is hyped so much other than its ex on ps3 and there for the best thing ever according to some .. i'm on the last level already now and will be trading it in when something worth while comes out, as its certainly not a keeper, it seemed rasther short aswell .. i hate the way games like this so are short in single player campaign .. i only bought it coz it was half price in the bargin bin already here ..

I don't think its sold half as well as expected considering the cost/hype etc. i guess thats why its bargin bin already in the UK

It wasn't suppose to bring anything new to the genre either, other than the analogue cinematic feel they went for. And I think they did a good job there.

The cinematics like story are dull and generic.

Try multiplayer. That's the whole point and you just keep talking about the single-player, Darren.

I talk about single player as that's what I have played, i don't do a lot of multi player shooters not a big fan. I'll comment on the multiplayer if/when I play it, eastx

I agree with Darren. I mean, I'm playing the game now. It got its Sony hype for being a amazing technological feat. Yay, real time sparks, yay bullet impressions on the walls, ect. But can you shoot through walls? No. Destroy walls with explosives? No. Can you even aim without hitting the ground the sky but nothing in between? No No No. Its just a console FPS. It looks pretty, hyped to be a PS3 FPS to counter, but its nothing grand.

On the positive side I will say its got loads of style and beats Halo 3 graphically a great deal. Tying in different multi-player modes into single continuous matches also works very well.
