Today, I break to you all another story regarding the overhyped PS3 game Killzone 2. Since the game's launch, numerous threads across the internet have erupted, with gamers claiming they cannot even play the game because it gives them motion sickness.
I have visited forums across the net, from Sony's own to GameFAQs and IGN. I have to say it is stunning how many people are reporting these issues.
"This is the first time in twenty years of gaming that a game has made me feel so badly that I have to stop playing it.The controls combined with the painful blur and framerate drops do a number on my head that lasts for an hour or more after I stop playing." describes one gamer.
Another gamer says "well, after playing the demo and getting simulation sickness from it again, I cancelled my preorder of KZ2. It's ridiculous that such a small, meaningless feature like head bobbing is forcing me to not play one of the biggest releases the PS3 will ever see."
This is obviously a serious issue with this game, one that needs to be fixed in order to save some of the credibility of it's overfluffed paid reviews.
UPDATE: We are also receiving reports of serious eye strain and sore eyes from these same threads across the net. I believe the two issues are connected. I am currently loking deeper into this.
