Guerrilla Games Says Don’t Compare Killzone 2 To Anything

May 4, 2009 Written by Kyle P.


In a recent interview with Game Informer magazine, a Guerilla Games representative talked about Killzone 2, and how the gaming media constantly compares Killzone 2 to other major shooter franchises.

“We generally don’t mind [comparisons], as I can think of worse franchises to be compared to than [Halo or Call of Duty],” says Guerilla Games managing director Herman Hulst in the latest Game Informer. ” What I don’t like is being labeled as the “killer” of franchise X.

“We’ve set up Killzone as a universe and an experience in its own right, without wanting to benchmark it against any one particular game. We’re, obviously, gamers ourselves and we play anything from World of Warcraft to LittleBigPlanet to MotorStorm or Guitar Hero, but there isn’t one title that has been the biggest influence.”

So, in other words, stop comparing Killzone 2 to a Halo or a Gears of War, as Guerilla Games doesn’t want any of it. Not to mention it’s like comparing apples to oranges, as each respective game has different strengths, weaknesses, and even focal points.
