Polish Magazine "PSX Extreme" Killzone 2 Review: It's Not Us
Okay, it's true. I'm Polish. My grandfather speaks Polish. But although the Polish magazine "PSX Extreme" and this grand ol' site here has the same name, we're not affiliated in any way.
The review has popped up on the Internet and is dragging in a lot of attention, primarily because it's one of the first "official" reviews to be found. Thing is, we - like all the other sources - are waiting for the strict embargo date to lift, and that's still a couple weeks off. Yes, we have the game; we've had it for a while now, which means we've been playing it for a while. But we follow the rules in question, and although it appears that print magazines can bend those rules a bit, we'd rather stick to the guidelines. For the record, several reviews for Killzone 2 have been found (or at least alluded to) over the past couple of weeks, and not surprisingly, all of them are overwhelmingly positive. We'll ignore the Maxim review everyone is talking about, just 'cuz we typically ignore Maxim for anything game-related in the first place. Entertainment magazines or online publications that were not initially built around games tend to have "epic fail" reviews, and that's sometimes because the publications "ported" over a sports writer or something when they started covering games.
Anywho, we just wanted to step up and clarify that the "PSX Extreme" review you see floating around the Internet has absolutely nothing to do with us. Nope, PSX Extreme, the site that turns 10 years old this year (yep, 10) has not issued their Killzone 2 review yet. We haven't, because we've been told not to. So. There ya go.
