    I have 360, but this game looks so impressive, that it became one of my games-to-buy whenever I get a PS3. MGS 4 and Infamous are also on that list of must haves. But number one spot is for GOW 3!!!!

    Killzone 2 is a amazing game. I can't stop playing it. Online is freaking fun as hell and campaign is fun also. Elite mode is fun but annoying.

    Ok, to every single little microsoft fanboy out there I have some things to maturely discuss with you... Firstly - Halo is an old series that has some amazing gameplay - but overall only copies the last halo game... so what if IGN gave Halo 3 or Gears 2 a SLIGHTLY -not even more than 1/2 a score- better score people need to come up with their own opinions... It's like w/ Monster Hunter.. some people like it, some don't and some just think it sucks because they are review bots. Secondly - I can say, after 2 1/2 years of being an xbox fanboy- playing H3, GoW2 and Fable 2... the PS3 is better... I used to think it was crap until I picked up the system for myself and gave it a go. First things I noticed for online play - less lag, wayyyy less little kids, and sadly less people overall. If you want to talk tech about the PS3 vs. 360 then here:
    PS3 - up to 160gb Harddrive space, 50gb Blu-Ray discs (more room for game quality,graphics and content, but that's only for exclusives) 1080p HD output, 256MB of RAM (Xbox wins here), 8 core reality synthesizer - faster data processing, versus 360's 3 cores. Free Online With Wifi Adaptor OR cable option. Less overheating, quieter, Motion Sensor-USB charged-No Battery Needed-light-Classic PS Dualshock Design-Rumble-Pressure Sensitive Controller, Connectivity w/ PsP through Remote Play, PS1 games, PS Store is much better - Netflix vs. the Video Store... their equal, XMB (which yes, sony created w/ the PSX in 04, and the PSP), Internet Browser, HOME... no wii remake avatars- it's free- it's very cool!.

    So... the PS3 is pretty much the superior system (google worlds most powerful console). As for online superiority Xbox has it in Numbers, PSN has it in quality.

    Also to the people talking about how the PS3 has bad games or too few... stop living in the past: We have... and are going to have
    Little Big Planet, ResistanceFoM, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, MGS4, Lair, Motorstorm, MAG(256 player FPS no lag battles), Mod Nation Racer (basically LBP racing), Demon Soul, FFXIII Versus, FFXIV, Heavy Rain, The Agency, Haze, Uncharted 2, InFAMOUS, Folklore, Heavenly Sword, All of the Ratchet and Clank games, God of War 3 and of course - Warhawk! To name the best of the best.

    Xbox Exclusive best titles ( yes I have played and enjoyed them )
    Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, Halo New Reach, Halo Wars, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Too Human, Left 4 Dead ( also on computer ), Crackdown, Crackdown 2, Lost Odyssey (all those discs would fit into 1 Blu-Ray), 99 Nights Fable 2...

    I think we all know who is the winner of the console war...

    Anyhow... just to make this seem relevant to the review: Killzone 2 is an amazing, amazing game - I got it right when I finally got my PS3 along w/ Fallout 3 and Armored Core: For Answer. Co-Op would have been cool... but who really cares? Single player is just fine to hone your skills for Multiplayer, and get a feel for the story - no matter how uninteresting it might be lol.

    Also Adam I loved your Sesslers Soapbox about these comments - hilarious :)
