Minutes after being let loose in the Killzone world you get a genuine sense of diverse environment. The vast amount of onscreen objects at one time is stunning, bullets, shrapnel and plenty of dead helghast. The game visually is absolutely stunning, when played in 1080p it is absolutely flawless, not a single jagged edge – kudos to Guerilla on this, they done a great job of ensuring they maintain the visually stunning Killzone 2 game we were promised many E3s ago.
The single player is a fair length, it isn’t too short nor is it too long. The story does drag on at times when required to do the same task over and over, however the vast array of weapons compensate for this. Guerilla have paid divine attention to their selections of weapons – there are standard machine guns, hand guns as well as some Helghan speciality weapons such as the Bolt Gun and the Electric Gun which both deliver and instant shock death to your unsuspecting enemy.
Multiplayer held high expectations and has most certainly delivered, most leading titles downgrade their graphical performance during multiplayer to boost their game’s performance slightly – however Killzone has no downgrades. It’s the single player experience, except with your buddies. The maps are huge and you will most definitely find yourself lost; but the 32 player compatibility will ensure you’re not left without some people to shoot!
This game is definitely worth a purchase, it ticks all the right boxes for a perfect first person shooter experience. This game has depth and plenty of cliffhangers, so prepare to gripping the arm of your chair in scarce, exciting and thrilling 1080p HD moments.
