Helghast - The Most Hated Good Guys That We Should Play As

Premier Gaming Network - Throughout all the Killzone titles we are prompted to take up arms against our very own brothers, the Helghast. Thought to be the most dangerous villains known to universe, the Helghast true ambitions were no more harmless than what was already occurring on Earth. Their untold back story is what truly makes them gaming most hated good guys. (Killzone, Killzone 2, Killzone 3, PS3)

i always wanted to play as Helghast they are badass
every time i play KZ2 or 3
i feel how much dangerous and smart those guys can get
i always take my time before i attack because the AI in those games is incredible
i would love to play as them from the beginning

I think that allowing the player to play as the Helghast would be a tremendous waste, personally. The reason being that the Helghast are a brilliantly designed enemy and if you actually got to play as them, fighting the ISA would be terribly dull in comparison.

Of course, if they eliminated the ISA from the story completely and plunged the player into some kind of Helghast civil war then that would be great, but pulling them away from the spotlight to let the player take control of one would be a big waste in my opinion.

Sure you might think it would be cool, but who wants to go through a game fighting against the dull ISA all the time?

I would love to see Killzone 4 with the player as the lead character - the daughter of Visari and leader of the Elite Shock Commando Troop Alpha - Visari's Fist, returning from the southern polar region to avenge her father. You begin on Helghan wiping out the invaders and then infiltrate deep onto Vekta to take out the C3I of Vektan command. No mercy, no prisoners, no regulations, and no master save death itself.

Couldn't agree more. Helghast civil war would be awesome.
bluetoto  +   994d ago

agree with the civil war idea, would be awesome, disagree playing as the helghast would be dull.

After 3 games playing as the ISA it's getting really hard finishing the game playing as the A-holes. Many would'nt have any problems gunning down thousands of isa as we all do in the MP.

Not caring whether ANY of your teammates or commrades lives or dies is dull. listening to the same normal voices, looking at the same pale faces over and over is dull.

best part of kz3 was the little section you played in disguise and got a lil behind the door look at how they do things, even for just a bit. but maybe that's just me lol

Bring on Killzone Mercenary on Vita! That way you can fight for the ISA or Helghast, so everyone will be happy! :)

I agree. Would be great if it happened in killzone 4.
remanutd55  +   994d ago
I think Killzone Mercenary will let us play as Isa and Helghast too
Nitrowolf2  +   994d ago
eh I thought we were just Mercenaries? Not actually playing from their perspective, just taking jobs
remanutd55  +   994d ago
I think i read an article about picking sides but im not sure.
TooTall19  +   994d ago
Yeah you play as Mercs and do missions for both sides.
whoyouwit04  +   994d ago
I always figure the hellghast were really the good guys.

I can't wait to see what GG do with Kz4 on the PS4.

Die Vektans!!!
The Helghast aren't really the good guys. There are no good guys in Killzone. At best they're the lesser of 3 evils.
palaeomerus  +   994d ago
They got their own world blown up by a few left behind Vektans all because they were about to pick a fight with Earth that they'd probably have lost quickly anyway (Earth are the bad asses in the KZ universe) despite their silly green stuff bombs. And it turned out that Visari probably isn't really dead. Great plan ya had there Visari. The Helghast pretty much suck.

the world of Killzone is unique. . I still gotta buy the trilogy 'nd play them in order :)
akaakaaka  +   994d ago
and i hope to see KILLZONE 2 in 4k at 120fps, who will not buy it? agree if you will..
porkChop  +   994d ago
Yeah the Helghast really are the good guys and I would love to play them. The fans keep asking for it but Guerrilla doesn't seem too interested in the idea. Such a shame.
