I just got finished with Killzone 2, and YE GODS is that game annoying. Aside from the fact that the partner A.I. sucks and your teammates will leave you open to fire 100% of the time, the supporting cast are some of the worst of I’ve ever seen. The characters are bland, annoying, and I was thoroughly disappointed by the end of the game when I realized none of them were going to die. Then there’s Rico, the supposed leader of your merry band, who can’t seem to go 5 seconds without saying “f*@k,” “s&$t,” “b*!#h,” or some combination of the three. He’s a giant, whiny, trigger-happy idiot, and every time he spoke I died a little inside. So here’s my advice: only play Killzone 2 if you’re deaf, illiterate, and have an infinite amount of patience. Otherwise, I don’t really think the game is worth it.

I felt similarly about Kane and Lynch. I obviously have no problems with swearing when there’s a reason for it, and I understand a band of criminals aren’t going to be robbing a bank speaking nothing but The King’s, but when the subject and predicate of every sentence are fuck and shit respectively, maybe the writing team should take a second look at the dialog.
