Guerrilla Games' Killzone, the first entry in the now established FPS franchise, is coming to PlayStation Network, Sony has confirmed.

The PS2 game - touted as the system's Halo killer back in the day (it wasn't) - will hit the US store on January 24 priced $9.99.

Sadly this is the PS2 game ported straight across to PS3, with no added bells or whistles such as high definition visuals.

A European release hasn't been confirmed. Analysis

Whilst Killzone 2 and 3 can be held up as solid examples of the FPS genre, complete with stunning visuals, the first game was rather uninspiring and played today is likely to cause more frustration than enjoyment.

Had the game been given a bit of a makeover, complete with smoother high definition visuals, it might have been worth a second visit, but as it stands there are much better ways to spend $10.

I still have my PS2 copy of this and rather enjoyed it back in the day.

It played differently to other FPSs and had a decent online component.

I dug it out about a year ago and it was like seeing a girl from school who you used to really fancy again, only see doesn't look quite as 'hot' anymore.

The lack of any HD upgrade or polish means I'll skip on this, despite being a fan of the franchise.
