Killzone Mercenary: “When you review it you’re going to write it’s the definitive FPS for PS Vita”

OPM: Guerrilla Games has its sights firmly set on Killzone Mercenary being the seminal shooter for Vita. That’s according to the studio’s managing director Hermen Hulst, who told us in an interview: “I’m going to be happy when come September, you review the game, you’re going to write that this is the definitive FPS for the PS Vita…It’s not so much scores and numbers, but that’s the tone I’m hoping for.” (Killzone Mercenary, PS Vita)

This is why you have top tier developers handle your most prestigious IPs. What happened with Resistance should not be repeated.

Resistance, and also CoD.

Killzone is a ripe opportunity to - finally - show that the Vita is a capable FPS-on-the-go machine.

As long as Nihilistic dont get their hands on it we shouldnt worry at all about the game.

But i doubt that will ever happen given their horrible track record.

couldn't help but hear a count Dracula voice when I read this “When you review it you’re going to write it’s the definitive FPS for PS Vita”

It's a damn pity that Rockstar are now going to try and ruin Killzone's launch by releasing GTA 5 on the friggin same day. Remember what happened when Alan Wake released the same day as RDR....

The Vita needs all the publicity it can get. So F*** off R*, there's 365 days in a year ,go get your own.

I always knew that the Vita is a powerful machine. But the graphics on this game is redonkulous. I have never seen graphics like this on a handheld before. Why cant all developers do this. Imagine what COD and Resistence could of looked like? Such a shame.

In terms of difficulty, yes but in terms of VA nooo.

Ummm i think in reality that when sites review it they are not going to say it is the definitive FPS for the Vita. They will actually say it is good but not as good as the PS3. Just like how many sites did the same to Uncharted, Assassins Creed, Resistance, & COD.

It'll be the same song & dance, unfairingly comparing it to the PS3 games. I hope i am wrong about this & that this game will get the recognition it should get. However i am not holding my breath when it comes to gaming journalism.
