I'm not saying Killzone 2 is gonna be bad. It's gonna be good, but it shouldn't be considered a "Halo (3) Killer".
That's true, if Halo had no MP, it woudln't have been more than a short lived blip on the radar. I wouldn't say that Halo 2 is the best FPS, but of course that's my opinion. I grew tired of Halo and Halo 2 just as quickly as any other FPS, granted it was fun and fast paced online, it just didn't do it for me. I personally enjoy more SP oriented games with decent MP capablility. Plus I'm not a big fan for paying a montly fee to play a game online, which also drew a line for Halo/Halo2, they were fun, but to me it wasn't worth it. Of course my opinion doesn't fit the many out there who have decided that game is worth it, and for many Halo 2 is worth the Live subscription, which is cool.
I agree that KZ2 shouldn't be considered a "Halo Killer", but if it has a better SP experience then it won in my book! But I'm sure the Halo series will remain on-top for best MP FPS, which is where it deserves to be, they might as well leave out the SP after Halo 2's sad excuse for a single player experience. But maybe they have some tricks and a good story up their sleeves to change that!
