That may be true, but its missing that special something which brings tier 2 games like Killzone 2 to tier 1 games like COD, and Halo 3, and Gears.
Dude, you're just pulling generalisations out of thin air without any basis in fact.
WTF is "tier 1 and tier 2"to you? Someone else already called shenanigans on your sales/quality argument, but fact is KZ2 remains the best selling FPS on PS3 behind RFOM.
You call Gears of War tier 1 without stating your reasons...even though Gears of War 2's online HAS BEEN BROKEN SINCE DAY ONE! CLiffy B even SAID SO recently, apologising for the failure. Google it. KZ2 had a deeponline with high player counts, dedicated servers and matchmaking that actually WORKED...yet you claim it's not tier 1? Even with a Metacritic over 90?
Speaking of Metacritic, let's go there. You brought up Call of Duty as a better tier 1 game. KZ2 came out the same year as Call of Duty: World at War. COD: WAW had a Meta score of 84...EIGHTY FOUR...while KZ2 has a Meta' that same year of 91.
91 > 84. So don't sayKZ wasn't top tier in 2009 when it even bested COD.
You brought up Halo as well. Halo 3 ODST, came out the same year as KZ2 as well. Another tier 1 franchise in your opinion that had a Meta' score of...get this...83. EIGHTY THREE. That's even lower than the aforementioned COD game.
91 > 83.
So in 2009, KZ2 critically bested both COD and Halo, had an online that actually worked, and became one of the best selling consoleFPS's to date. It's cool if you don't like it, but saying it's tier 2 because it wasn't "special foryou", well yeah, that's gonna get you some disagrees.Odst was an expansion Bungie didnt want to charge 60 they said so. So compare the 93 of halo 3 not its expansion. KZ2 is a great game lems can not deny it. Halo is a great game cows can not deny it. Both: "Can and will!" :P
