Killzone dev responds to 'grey' critics

Director says it's got a "rich and varied colour palette"

Sure, look through our 119 Killzone 2 screenshots and you'll notice it's all a little grey. But it's not all like that, promises game director Mathijs de Jonge.


Speaking to CVG, de Jonge said: "The first images that we released were just from one level that was still in early production, and I can assure you that the final game has a very rich and varied colour palette - and still manages to maintain that gritty and realistic look and feel."

He went on to say that the differences in production values between Killzone 2 and "other shooters" are "striking".

"We've managed to push so far in all areas that this game feels like a next generation game. When I go home at night after a long day of work I play other shooters to relax, and although I certainly enjoy playing them, the difference in graphical quality, production values and the experience itself, is striking."

Killzone 2 will be out on February 25. More soon.
