    Red Faction: Guerrila better than Killzone 2?


    We all know that Killzone 2 was amazing, well only the single player mode anyway. Since the release of the Red Faction Demo/BETA everybody wants it.

    Guerrila is based on the planet Mars, in the year 2208, it's a third-person-shooter which is the big difference to Killzone 2 and it's extremely fun.
    The Geo-mod 2.0 installment is possibly the best idea in the third installment of the series, it lets you destroy pretty much everything which is awesome!

    You play as Alec Mason, and will be fighting the EDF (Earth Defence Force). You will be able to run, jump, hijack vehicles, and use weapons to traverse across the open world. Weapons in the game will include: machine gun turrets, rocket turrets, remote charges, a sledgehammer, machine guns, and many others. A special weapon, the “Grinder”, is a homemade, improvised weapon made by miners that launches charged blades at enemies and objects. Vehicles will be a returning feature to the game. These vehicles include: APCs, a 6 wheeler cargo truck, a walking construction mech, a jetpack, and possibly many others.

    The game will include online multiplayer with up to 16 players at a time. Rather than Alec, the player will use separate characters for multiplayer. It has been announced that the game will feature several multiplayer modes.

    The game will be released on June 9 in North America and the European release date is set to be June 12.

    What's wrong with multiplayer?

    The multiplayer in Killzone 2 is very good and is half the reason the game got the high scores it got, Red faction 3 is not even the same type of game, so why are you comparing the two to begin with, kinda dumb. Red faction 3 will probably be a good game, but couldn't be sure of that from just playing the demo, and even if it is, it doesn't change that Killzone 2 is a amazing looking and playing game. Graphicly it doesn't even come close to what Kilzones graphic are, and that is completely amazing. You lose credibility as a PS3 gaming site with this article.

    If you like the demo so much and think the game is so great, why the need to compare to a totally different game or to any game at all.

    Lol, Ed did you just say that Killzone 2 a shooter and Red Faction: Guerrila also a shooter are 2 different types of games? Graphics aren't all they are made out to be, hence the Wii has trounced both the PS3 and 360. Gameplay is what it is all about, and the Wii's gameplay is interesting to more than just hardcore gamers, it's interesting too just about everyone. People don't continue to buy classic games in the Wii's store and the 360's marketplace because they used to have sweet graphics, they buy them because the gameplay is fun.

    Also I'm pretty sure that 99% of all PS3 blogs compared KZ2 to Halo3 during it's demo.

    You are either a troll, or a huge idiot.

    Well, I guess either way, you are an idiot.

    @ Mitch...
    Killzone is a FPS ( first person shooter)like Halo and COD and Red Faction is a 3rdPS ( third person shooter) like Gear of War and Drakes fortune. I think that what Ed was pointing out. But I agree that Graphics arent everything gamplay is more important...

    Have you even played killzone 2, The Multiplayer was the best part and if you have even played the demo of Red Faction you would know that its fun but its not a game what will last very long, the weapons are pretty bad except for the hammer, the driving is kinda aquard and blowing stuff up gets boring.

    Looks nice... but I don't think it will be good comparison between Killzone 2 and Red Faction: Guerrila. As both games are different.

    I like the use of vehicles in th game...

    Kurai said...

    It's a good game.. But, why compare it to Killzone 2?

    Are you joking? Have you ever REALLY played Killzone's multiplayer? It completely obliterates any other online game I have played to this date, including COD 4 and others.
