Killzone is a squad-based, first-person shooter, set in the near future during a period of planetary colonization. Drawing inspiration from classical military conflicts of the 20th century, Killzone demonstrates a unique graphical style that captures the grit and realism of intense military warfare. Featuring online gameplay via the Network Adaptor (Ethernet/modem) (for PlayStation®2) with voice-chat capabilities via the USB Headset (for PlayStation®2), Killzone is based on classic military altercations found in the history of warfare; players will battle through trenches, endure city sieges, sweat through jungles and battle guerilla combatants.

When I first heard of Killzone, I was pretty skeptical, because any game they call a "Halo beater" is usually crap. In fact, I only picked it up because Amazon was doing an 8 quid deal (good on ya). When I first picked up the controller, I could tell that it was going to be ace. Perhaps it was anticipation, or the Coke I had downed before playing, but I was basically shivering to get playing.
Watched the opening cutscene, totally mint. One of the greatest game openings ever. Onto the menu, whoo. Start the Campaign.
The first mission starts off with a pretty nice cutscene, and launches you right into a trench, whilst you watch the Helghast walk into a minefield. Poor sods, but they're the ones invading.
I could write forever about the greatness of Killzone, so I'll go right onto the cons.
1st one and probably the most prominent: Slow loading face textures. Many times you look at your fellow soldiers and their faces will be glitched and blurred, and you will have to wait a few seconds for the proper (and impressive) textures to load.
Second is, the game gives you a selection of playable characters. All right, okay, that's sweet. Problem is, I found myself just playing through the whole thing with Luger, with two exceptions. Her one hit kills with the knife and pretty impressive SMG just make her my first choice. In fact, the SMG's better with a sniper rifle. I think you should've had to complete the game to unlock the next character, complete it with them to unlock the next, and so on.
Third, some of the game movies are just awesome. My problem is that even if you complete the game, you have to play through again to see the cutscenes instead of just giving you a movie viewer. I know you can do this with cheats, I just think it would've been smart to include that.
Final, the sniper scope is rubbish. Period.
Aside from these problems, Killzone is a total classic. I recommend it to anyone who owns a Playstation. If you don't own it yet, buy it here! HALF PRICE!!!
The game pushes the PS2 to its absolute limits which is evident in almost every single aspect of the game. The AI of the Helghast is refreshing in that they simply don't just run into your gun fire and will only charge you if forced out of hiding or rush you with a partner.
The game is not without it's flaws - You'll hear your team repeat the same phrases an immeasurable number of times, and it's possible to get stuck in parts of the environment (this has only happened to me twice however). Some texture breakout can also be seen in more complicated scenes.
Whilst Killzone may not be all that the media hyped it up to be, it is certainly a better game than most would believe. It is worth a purchase even just for a taste of what Killzone 2 may offer on the PS3.
