First of all, to all of you guys who are about to claim that only the noobs complain about this issue, I totally agree. Now that the actual game has been released, the community at large feels the controls and feel of the game are just perfect, all issues from the BETA and DEMO have been addressed.
I bought TWO copies of the game last night, brought my wife to gamestop for the midnight launch. And after two hours of trying the MP portion AGAIN (since the November beta), I have to say... you have done an amazing job of responding to and fixing all our concerns.
Now, I got three promotions in that time, and was consistently getting 30+ kills in each game (putting me in the #1 to #3 spot in each game.) I am now ranked General and was awarded the Valor Grand Cross. Any skilled played can excel in this game.
The problem is, many of the current crop of players are used to the highly twitchy/ADHD style games like COD4 that try to replicate the speed and precision of a mouse and keyboard based. When players that have been catered to by these older games come and plly a technically perfect game such as Killzone 2, the players flaws and inexperience start to stand out.
The bottomline is, because of their lack of practice and basic skill, THEY ARE BAD AT KILLZONE 2.
If you think I'm wrong, then consider this: I have been playing videogames since 1984, and I work AT A VIDEOGAME company. So, I naturally surround myself with people who play videogames both as a hobby and for a living. So how is it that NONE OF MY ACQUAINTANCES consider the aiming/control system an issue? ALL OF the QA guys at my company, ALL OF my outside contacts (at other videogame companies) and ALL OF my friends (whos reviews you probably read at major websites) IMMEDIATELY noticed the highly polished and engaging MP part of this title.
I am posting my plea here so that GG will see that the majority of the community loves this game and that they don't butcher it after the fact to attract new sales to people who will ultimately bring down the quality of the community... you know the type from COD who just go for kills, not even acknowledging flags or bombs.
PLEASE DO NOT RUIN THE THE AIMING SYSTEM WITH A PATCH.
KUDOS!!!! (i gave you one ) i completly agree!!!
