The first review of Killzone: Mercenary has arrived, all thanks to Official Playstation Magazine Benelux.
near perfect score... this game deserves it..........
great score! not that I have doubt or anything as mine is already pre-ordered! now I'm just playing the waiting game...GoW Ascension too!
What is the score? The site isn't working for me
If the single player alone is a 9 out of 10 then this is a good contender for Vita's game of the year. Damn my huge backlog :/
The beta proved to me what I expected Resistance to prove to me, and that's that FPS games can work and work incredibly well on the Vita. Killzone Mercenary is made by Guerilla Games Cambridge, not even the main branch, and it is absolutely fantastic from what I've played. Very addictive. I hope these guys make a new IP for Vita soon, because they've already proven that they can make a great game imo.
@ blastoise. The score is 9/10.
Awesome, have a helpful bubble
http://www.gamepur.com/news... 9/10 not including the multiplayer mode ;)
I love the beta version. The only gripe I have with the game is that you cant lie flat on the ground. I told myself that i will never play another FPS after Modern warfare 3 but im a big supporter of the Vita and i will come out of retirement damn it.
Picked up a Vita when the price dropped to $199. The KZ Beta was the first thing I tried. I suck at the game, although I'm improving a tiny bit now... However, the game is so frickin sweet. I can't wait to try the single player. The online beta has to be the new bar to beat in handheld gaming.
loving the beta, can't wait to get this
Surely Polygon aren't going to make it look obvious this time ... ?
"Not counting multiplayer" really. The beta cemented my faith in the multiplayer part but I was concerned about the single player. Good to hear
right... we already know how good multiplayer portion of Killzone: Mercenary via recent beta... question regarding single-player portion is answered here......
So it has an awesome online multiplayer mode AND single player campaign mode! Day one buy. :) Nice to see them bothering with a single player campaign, I heard certain games aren't bothering next gen...that bugs the hell outta me! >:(
The beta blew me away. I can't even imagine how amazing the campaign is going to be.
This does look like a great game but you can't really go by a review from a PlayStation magazine without some bias. We will soon see the beta is fantastic even if it is one map.
Maybe for some sites. Saying that though the official Playstation magazine can be quite harsh on exclusives, they gave Playstation All Stars a 6/10. I wouldn't of said that was a biased score.
OPM magazines aren't biased. Their scores are pretty much always accurate even for a PlayStation first party games
Uhh... there's no bias here. The Official Playstation magazine is owned by Future publishing who also own the Official Xbox magazine.
This... they are just the PS team as Future covers Xbox as well. Even IGN and Gamespot has teams dedicated to specific consoles and game types.
Why are they called Official xxx Magazine then? Who gave them the permission, to call it "official"? I honestly thought until now, that they have some kind of connection to Sony/MS.
@zod Read Sevir's post below. He explained it best.
i already knew this. god sent me the answer last night in a dream...amen
Nice now u just wait for its bigger brother on ps4 shadowfall can't wait
I have very little doubt that this game will be nothing but brilliant but lets wait for reviews from someone other than Official PlayStation magazine before we party up in here home slices.
Again with people thinking Official **insert console manufacturer here** magazine is ran by corresponding console staff... Give it a rest, Official just means the magazine focuses on games that release on the platform, they are not own, operated or independently sanctioned by any of the first party companies. Future/backbone publishing owns and runs and staffs OXM, OPM and NP. So caution because official = console bias has no merit... if they only reviewed Exclusives and no multiplats and all exclusives received high scores there would be some credence of being biased.
The vita went through 2 poor fps so I feel happy that it got a great game like KZ mercenary!
3rd times a charm as they say.
Yeah, I hope this will be a system seller. Can't wait to buy a Vita this October :D
It has been a while since I´v been hyped for game and since I´ve enjoyed Killzone for the PSP and the PS3, I think I will preorder Killzone Mercenary.
don't be too surprise if you see some sorts of growth in PS VITA sales just because of Killzone: Mercenary
