Killzone 2 – Sweet, Now Why do I Care?

Posted by deckard47 on December 4, 2008

I’m having trouble remembering when it was that I saw a game that looked this fluid and assured of itself in motion. As far as I can remember it was when I first sat down and played Call of Duty 4, but even that game lacked something that I’m seeing in these trailers. I’m not sure what it is, but it definitely has to do with the sense of momentum that things and people have in the world, and their reaction to stimuli. Just watching the way your rifle moves is enough to convince me that these guys are on to something.

However. I don’t know how I’ll be able to relate to this game on more than a very basic level. I had the same problem with CoD4. There wasn’t much reason to care about the goings on (ooh, they’re attacking a boat. So what), but then CoD introduced me to scenes and situations that were surprisingly well written and moving, and I changed my tune. Can Killzone 2 pull off the same feat? I’d love for them to, I’d love to have another great shooter to play (especially considering CoD4 is still the only online shooter I play). We’ll just have to cross our fingers, I suppose.
