Killzone 2 PSN Demo

Heard this was released today so starting to download it, can't wait!
The servers must be taking a huge hit though, been downloading 15 minutes and only up to 5% (1200MB file), normally my PSN downloads are pretty rapid.
On a virgin connection so guess I will just have to be patient.  Grin

Let me know what you think of it

Re: Killzone 2 PSN Demo

unfortently ITFCdan plusnet are suffering the same problem with downloads on psn. extra snow traffic slow things down. but least the gaming side is in the top prioity and no lag issues on PN even with the extra load of traffic Smiley

ITFCdan, if you're gonna be using BBYW Pro you won't suffer the slow downs that others (me) have.

Re: Killzone 2 PSN Demo

well?  i thought it was amazing - definitely left me wanting to play the full game... looks beautiful, all feels really solid and weighty, controls are good (i set mine to 'alternate 2' which is more-or-less COD style).  seems like it does all the regular FPS stuff, just really really well. a much better advert for the game than the RE5 demo!
also, Lumines Supernova!!!!

Re: Killzone 2 PSN Demo

Yep, played it now and loved it!
I'm easily pleased though, cos I'm allegedly the only person who also liked the Resident Evil 5 demo Grin

Think I'm gonna pick this up on release date, Play.com have got it for under £30 which is always good

Good times!

Re: Killzone 2 PSN Demo

I guess you're only getting it from Play for the theme they give you exclusively  Wink
Going by the demo I think I'll wait a week after release and decide since it all seemed a bit slow moving, plus the best potential part of it is the multiplayer mode. If it's not better than COD it might be overlooked so let me know because I'm poor.

Re: Killzone 2 PSN Demo

To be honest I'm not too bothered about the theme, but when I order new games from Play.com I normally get them before the actual street release date which ticks off my friends!  Wink

Yeah I'm having problems deciding between Killzone and Resi 5 myself, (can't afford both sadly, car MOT has wiped my funds out) so might give it a few days after release and see what the critics say before spending my hard earned cash!
