    Good game, but nothing amazing from the already oversatured FPS genre. The MP got old fast, cant compare to COD4 and just lacked the variety. Sorry but 10 maps (even with DLC) just aint gonna cut it. If it wasnt for the amazing graphics, it would be an average FPS.

    I wouldnt say that KZ2 blows but the graphics is solely what hyped this game beyond belief. Without the eye candy, it would have been an average FPS.

    game sold well over a million worldwide. a ps3 price drop will move more in america as more people would pick up the system.

    also the fact that its coming off of a horrible start to the series, i think its doing pretty well.

    Yup, can you imagine how much this game cost to develop and how much resources Sony threw at hyping it?

    Agree game was over hyped. It started out ok but just fell into another run of the mill FPS. They couldn't even carry the cover system over to mp to make it somewhat unique.

    best fps ive played in quite a few years. if it takes a clip to kill someone online, you suck and shouldnt be playing the game, simple as that. if i couldnt kill someone with a clip in any game, id stop playing it too and say it sucked

    I'm actually starting to worry about Modern Warfare 2 because of this.

    I think the big problems can come when the developers themselves let it get to their heads and since everyone loves IW to death I have a bad feeling.

    Well if this is the best FPS you've played in years then there's something wrong with you.

    i value your opinion, thanks much for it. and i bet the best fps game youve played is 100% spot on cause its your opinion. if i wasnt talking to a ps3 hater in the first place, maybe id actually take your opinion seriously

    I wouldn't say it blows, but I will agree will your point there! Having to empty an entire fucking clip into some of the guys just to kill them drove me fuckin nuts! :squint:

    Same could be said about CoD4, unless you're playing the realistic mode but that gets rid of the HUD and that kind of sucks in a multiplayer FPS. Then the PC version was tainted when people downloaded save files and it became a pain in the ass for legit players to level up. Oh and the endless random grenade throwing/launching was annoying as hell. Honestly CoD4 had an awesome single player mode (just like Killzone 2) but the multiplayer wasn't that great (just like Killzone 2).
