Swedish site GP has published what appears to be the first online review of Killzone 2, and has awarded the game 4 out of 5.
The reviewer sums things up thus:
[Translated from Swedish] The controls are good and the environments feel natural, raw and uncouth and that’s where Killzone 2 succeeds compared to many other shooters; it feels more personal, it’s easier to identify with your character and to feel connected with your teammates. Co-op is noticeably missing, which is odd, and Killzone 2 isn’t doing much new with the genre but it is great enough to succeed without launching for the Christmas Sales Period.
Killzone 2 is released exclusively on PlayStation 3 at the end of February.
Update: The review has now been removed due to what is thought to be a breach of embargo.
