There are no words to describe how good this game is, for a long time Half life 2 has been my faviroute single player game but not anymore. The reviews this game got from the so called experts are laughable on the evidence i've seen. From beggining to end the game sucks you in for a truly remarkable adventure. The set pieces are stunning and you fight in some epic battles through out. Halo games have always provided me with a great single player experience but killzone 3 blows them all out of the water and yes that includes combat evolved.
Lets get on thing straight, i'm no graphics whore. The game is stunning to look at but its very rough around the edges, with some very bland textures and some dodgy AA. I'm told the game uses MLAA, for the most part this seems to be the case but there are some occations when it gets very jaggy indeed. Overall though its a beautiful game and I think i'm being picky but I thought I should mention that it does have its flaws. My most memorable moment came when I was standing at the edge of the scrapyard level and it had one of the most beautiful vistas I have ever seen, I felt like my PS3 should be atleast coughing when trying to produce graphics like this. But no not even a hint of screen tearing anywhere.The story is one of the reasons some reviewers dropped the score down, well I can't see why. Its really easy to follow, it makes you feel part of a huge battle and its engaging from beginning to end. I'm going to be very interested in seeing what crytek can do on the PS3 because GG have set a very high benchmark we may not see broken untill the arrival of Uncharted 3.
The one thing that put me off killzone 2 was the controls, people tryed to say it was realism but it was lag, simple as that. I bought the game again when they patched the controls and it was perfect. Killzone 3 improves further in the control department, it keeps its heavy feeling while still being very responsive which it needs to be in the more hectic battles you engage in. I'm sitting here writing this review while listening to the menu music, they have done an incredible job with both the sound ingame and the musical score that accompanys it throughout the game. I think a special mention should go to the music because Halo always seems to get applause for its music and killzone 3 is right up there with halo. I put the single player at a good 8 to 10 hours to get through on legendary, which I think is more than enough for this type of game.
The multiplayer is something i've no tryed yet but after playing the beta i'm really looking forward to sinking my teeth into that part of the game, I might even do a review.
