Following a fresh onslaught of Killzone 2 updates this month, PSU has decided to mark the occasion by showing off some of the visual differences and upgrades Guerrilla Games has applied to the hotly anticipated FPS over the past 18 months.
The screenshot comparison we are providing is comparing the E3 2007 trailer to the December 08 preview code released to the media last week.
After taking a glance at the shots below, one of the most conspicuous features you should notice is the upgraded character models. In the Dec. 08 version, facial textures have been noticeably improved along with some characters featuring completely different gear and weapon load outs. In addition, Guerrilla Games has made a number of improvements including enhanced motion blur and lighting effects, with colors and shadows appearing much darker.

It's also worth baring in mind that the December preview code is in fact an Alpha build of the game, which, according to recent reports, has already received some significant polishing over at Guerrilla HQ. With two months left to go until the game is released, we're expecting nothing short of perfection for the final product.

OOOOOhhh! I like how far the development has come but there are some pictures that I like in the old devolopment better, like the first one and the fifth one. I wanted those ships to look the way they were before

Yeah, the fifth picture. What the he** happened to his face? Did he become 80 years old or something?

Wow, the actual working game is more detailed than the original E3 pre-rendered clip. Sony has done an amazing job on this 1.

Awesome, at firt i thought this was the 05 pre-rendered cg vs the alpha build. Now that would be a real comparison

anyone wanna try an E3 05-08 comparison shot?

The fifth one is a glitch that has been recognised, that the guys face is like plastic.
Seb Downie (motherh; developer) noted it in his issues list.

Looking very good, but the actual game does look slightly lower res than the E3 shots and also WTF happened to the fire trail in the 7th picture it looks like sh** compared to E3 hope they can do better than that, coz thats rather shameful otherwise.

@ 8 i agree with the fire trail,
If this doesn't get a 10/10 from reviewers then something is really wrong with the world, from playing and looking at progression of it i'd give it 11/10

@ 8...you've got to be joking...the second fire tail looks WAY more realistic than the first...07 screenshot looks like the craft exploded continuously every second all the way down...
- 4:35am EST - December 8th, 2008
@ 11 have you ever seen a vehicle or plane moving whilst its fuel tank is on fire? I promise you that the second picture is not realistic and the E3 version looks a heck alot better.

The fire coming off that carrier has really went down hill since E3, everything else looks better though.
- 4:58am EST - December 8th, 2008
i think the firetrail looks a lot better now, not so much just circles coming out of the back end. it can still be better but in my opinion it looks better than before

@8,9,10 I think the fire trail looks better in the second on thhen the first,look at these two and compare the fire during the gameblay and stuff
Look at the fire in the E3 07- Look at the full thing or skip to 1:45 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lRAPncF5qw
Look At The Newest One- Go to 1:30,look on the left side of your sceen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNkacCgZUTY

Overall this trailer definitely looks better than the one from '07.. I especially apreciate the face textures they've upgraded they make the soldiers look much more realistic.
