Phwoar, remember Killzone 2? The PlayStation 3 exclusive hit with a bang back in February 2009, and it was the first time Guerrilla Games really blew people away with its mastery of Sony's tech. The Dutch developer would go on to craft the gorgeous Horizon: Zero Dawn on PlayStation 4, but let's just take a moment to remember the gritty, immensely intricate splendour of Killzone 2.
As highlighted in a great new video from those eggheads over at Digital Foundry, Killzone 2 still holds up incredibly well today, ten whole years after its release. From the brilliant lighting effects to all of the tiny little details, the game was an absolute visual feast back in 2009. We remember it blowing our minds at launch, and its oppressive atmosphere remains tangible even now.
It was such a weighty, physical shooter -- it really stood out from the twitchy competition that flooded the PS3 era. Honestly, we'd be up for a cheeky PS4 remaster.
