IGN: "Handheld sequel making a valiant effort to create the definitive FPS on the go."
This looks so good for a vita game.
It's not shooter we deserve...but the shooter we need right now..
Yup indeed mate. =]
see this is why ign is a terrible gaming media site.....soooooooooooooooooooo ooooo many articles and shit talking about the "vita need a great fps" and now that its been delivered you gripe about it because you feel like a fps should be on a console....crying about how it made you fingers ache n shit....omg man but MC 5 gets a pass though its controls have no buttons...smmfh at this one..... to save you time article says: best looking fps on handheld ever best sounding fps on handheld ever freedom to play in different styles (gives more xp for stealth or style kills) xp is shared between single and multiplayer then this dick crys about finger cramps and trys to explain why we should want a fps on consoles and not handhelds the rest gets kinda fuzzy due to the anger this article generated..ok I went back and he also complained that the levels were too long...wtf but whatever this is proof that ign hates the powerhouse that is the vita...cod levels too short....now kz levels too long seem the vita can never get it right for ign....they are so sold out Nintendo had to pay them a great amount of cash to have them troll the vita this way....rant almost done. man ign hates the vita...this game delivered what they asked and they still complain..... wtf I still cant believe it its just frustrating...smh fuck ign go vita!
This is similar to how Assassin's Creed Liberation won (if I'm not mistaken) Best E3 Handheld Game 2012 from them and then they turn around and give it a 7.2/10. Prior to their review they said many of the same things: - best-looking handheld game - most interactive open-world game on a handheld - great gameplay - awesome soundtrack - "AC on the go! What could go wrong?" They treated Uncharted: GA similarly, though not as harshly. They were like "yeah, it's a totally awesome game with fantastic graphics that rival the console version, but...wouldn't you rather play this on console? 8.5/10"
Vita doesn't need THE fps, it needs good games and Killzone: Mercenaries seems like one of these! Bring it on Guerrilla!
I had to chuckle when reading that a single chapter is almost an hour and that it seemed to be too long for a handheld. I was actually relieved to read that. A lengthy game is always wellcome in my book. Can't wait to see some more during E3; hopefully some mp.
Why does the time it takes for chapter even matter. We live in a generation where you have auto-saving checkpoints at almost every turn and on top of that you can put the Vita in sleep mode. Which is why the idea that a portable game should be quick/simply pick up 'n go makes no sense, sense every game can played like that.
I couldn't agree more. The Vita's sleep mode is very usefull in my Persona 3 & 4 playthroughs.
It's the shooter we need, we deserve and we've yearned for for so long.
that stab in the nuts in the video was harsh, very harsh
I would like to try it but i wont get my hopes up yet Hope it doesnt have forced touch controls for silly things, graphics looks very impressive I kinda get what he means though about how it can ache or be unconfortable to play on the vita, i get pins and needles most times i play mine and thats just on a game like p4g
If you've got big hands (like me) and they sometimes ache when you play Vita for a long time, get yourself the Nyko power grip - it's awesome, feels as comfortable/tactile as Dualshock3 and doubles the battery life! Best present the missus ever bought me and will be perfect for monster Killzone MP sessions! :)
Wow alot of disagrees for how my hands feel playing my console Thanks for the suggestion ill look into it :) hopefully the mp is decent
And folks wonder why IGN has the reputation it does. How can you praise a game for doing everything right, and then down it for getting it all right?
They also do the inverse of this which really questions their transparency. "10/10 it's ok - IGN"
a silent guardian... a watchful protector... a dark knight
lol, he complains the campaign is too long, but i say.... i WANT THAT! ^_^
cant spell ignorance without ign
IGN rather play short games like Call of Duty...those guys are s-s-stupid!!!
I started going to IGN when I was a around 11 years old. With every year that passes they lose some form of credibility to me, and over 12 years, there is close to nothing left save their "exclusive interviews" because they are popular and throw money at developers/publishers feet. Their reviews are a joke, plain and simple. It's like a bunch of hipsters sit around and think of dumb shit to say all day.
In the words of Gordon Ramsay "Piss Off!" IGN. I don't want your dirty little hands tainting this game.
A Vita Gem coming soon. Hope for Vita games E3! ^~^
Please, everybody ignore the idiots at IGN and just buy the game if you want it. Too much is made out from reviews/previews.
