2) A good FPS game for PS2, that should not be compared to Halo as they are too dissimilar in style to be compared effectively. Halo takes a vastly different approach to the space opera genre to Killzone. While Halo decided to focus on fast-paced human vs alien combat with exotic weaponry, Killzone was designed to be a brutal and gritty human civil war in space, and it succeeds in creating a dark, post-apocalyptic atmosphere which is exciting, dramatic and thrilling in its own way.
i.e. stop saying that Killzone was/wasn't a halo-beater and just have fun!
2- A recent FPS for the playstation 2. A decent game that can be accurately described as "Call of duty in space." This fun and well-rounded (although linear) game is unfortunate enough to have been over-hyped as a "Halo-killer" which is nothing more than a kiss of death, as now everyone, especially reviewers, will try to campare it to Halo, and of course, find this game lacking.
(And yes, I've played killzone. It's good, but not to the scale of Halo.)
2- "Killzone's no Halo-Killer, but it's still a really good game."
Well-Educated PS2 Owner: i'm going to throw knives at people's throats and rip them out, then cook a grenade and throw it at a horde of men, and then hide in the bushes. why do i do it? because i can't do that in halo, and i don't want to play online where everybody sounds the same.
