The much-hyped and hugely anticipated Killzone 2 is finally here, but does it live up to the formidable reputation that preceded it as the king of the console FPS genre?
Well, it certainly looks the part, with movie-grade visuals and the kind of effects that would make a Hollywood directorweep with jealous rage. It also feels impressive to play and features all the glory and gore of war set on a brutally beautiful alien planet. From the first moment, you are thrown into a bloody gun battle with the alien Helghast horde and the action never lets up. Killzone is a royally relentless – and brilliant – ride.
