Gotta be worth buying and now it has it's very own thread of love and hate.

Hopefully it won't be too much longer before my collectors box arrives. Someone needs to invent a matter transporter, I'm bored of waiting for the Royal Carrier Pigeon service to drag my games over the Atlantic.

Course you know what this means don't you. Instant 10 for Killzone 2.

Killzone 2 will obviously break EG's review scale.

Any word on how the devs are going to lock the online side of things, by disc or console?

Is it really 60 people online?

If so that gives me a fighting chance of taking someone down before the other 58 get me.

Yeah, 60 players.

I think it works as follows:

- 60 players join, 30 red, 30 blue
- the 60 players get further subdivided into squads of 4-8 people, and given objectives to carry out.
- there's always an opposing squad for every objective
- you traverse the (large) map towards your objective, encountering other squads along the way

That sounds truly glorious.

It is. In the beta you usually ended up in one spot though and had enemies coming from every direction. :)

That was my favourite mode. Team Death match is fun, too. especially if you run with 20 other players around the enemy lines and attack them from behind while they are busy shooting the remaining 10 players of your team.

If I can't play online with my Hong Kong machine (as happened with Resistance) I'm going to cry long and hard.

The 1up guys seemed to think the single player wasn't up to much, which is a shame as that's kind of what I was after from it. Having eventually really enjoyed Resistances single player.

Both this and Gears 2 have co-op online modes that are really tempting me. Not sure which one to get.

I think Resistance had global servers at some point in it's life so shouldn't be a problem with R2 either hopefully.

Looks like my mind might have been made up for me, 360 just died. At least I don't have to pay to get it fixed this time.

Crikey, there really seems to have been another spate of dead 360s recently. Hope the turnaround on it being fixed isn't too long.

Turned up today from Littlewoods, they may be getting more of my custom in the future, if they're kind enough to actually price up any more sensibly!

This also doubles my total of PAL PS3 games! ^^;

Now, can I actually get around to playing it before the general price drops below the £23 I paid for it...

I got mine from Littlewoods too but it will probably be thursday before I get to try it out.

Huh, is it out this week then? That's pretty early for a preorder to turn up, I've had stuff a couple of days before release on occasion but never that early.

Guess mine will be coming this week too, was kinda tempted to cancel it after the underwhelming beta but never got round to it, guess I'll have time to stomp through it over Christmas, but that said I'm still only a few hours into Fallout 3 and have barely touch Gears 2 online yet...:/

I ummed and aahhed about this one but canned my preorder because I don't think I can cope with yet another FPS / Run and gun this year, I'm all gunned out.

Online sounds amazing though and that'd probably be the only reason I'd pick it up though it would be good to see how the setting / storyline gets on.

Looks a bit generic from the screenies and footage though, but then I bought GOW2 :)

Strangely I didn't buy GOW2 but bought this. I do think the multiplayer sounds very refreshing with R2.

I'm confused as to the co-op mode though, all I've read is that it's kind of like the main campaign but different with some randomness thrown in, I'd love more details if anyone has it.

Also, does anyone know if it works with the HQ voice mode of the new official headset?

The Co-op has been compared to an MMO.
There's three classes. Soldier, spec-ops, medic. You level up the more you play/kill. The more you level up the more guns/equipment you get.

The levels are nothing like single player. There is some sort of story, but it seems like throw away crap. There's not really any objectives apart from kill everything and then move on. There's big bosses and stuff, though in the beta they seemed really buggy and didn't do much.

You really need to work as a team to succeed. Getting to close to enemies equals insta death. Soldiers>Spec ops>medic is the best formation. Spec ops can provide shield ammo to the soldiers while the medics can stay back and heal everyone, and their weapon has pretty good range too. Everyone can be behind the shields from the soldiers too.
Spec ops was my favourite from the beta.

Most people seem to think co-op is the best part of the whole package. I thought it was pretty awesome, and is even better playing with people you know, and when everyone has headsets.
I'm sure Nekotcha can give you a different side, from what I remember he didn't like it, and at times it does seem like all you're doing is pumping bullets into enemies. It's a lot more fun playing as a proper team though.
Hopefully there are a load more levels because the beta level got a bit boring.

I prefer competitive by far though. Skill pays off more, and I'd rather shoot other payer than bots.

High Quality. It's supposed to be something the new official headset can do.

Hughes review from the front page

It's kinda what I guessed from most reveiws despite their glowing praise. That the single player wouldn't live up to FoM (despite it's poor reviews :/).

Tbh I didn't care much for FoM's single player anyway, so maybe this watered down SP will suit me well seeing I'm most ly getting it for multiplayer shenanigans.

I don't get it - you're saying that despite the first game not doing well, this one is worse and yet scoring higher?
