First Killzone: Mercenary Review Score Arrived

The first review of Killzone: Mercenary has arrived, all thanks to Official Playstation Magazine Benelux.

near perfect score... this game deserves it..........

badz149980d ago

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!

Blastoise980d ago

What is the score? The site isn't working for me

ZodTheRipper980d ago

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 :/

gaffyh980d ago

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.

GreenCharles980d ago

@ blastoise. The score is 9/10.

Blastoise980d ago

Awesome, have a helpful bubble

kayoss980d ago

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.

sinclaircrown980d ago

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.

NumOnePS3FanBoy980d ago

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

eezo980d ago

right... we already know how good multiplayer portion of Killzone: Mercenary via recent beta... question regarding single-player portion is answered here......

G20WLY980d ago (Edited 980d ago )

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! >:(

NukaCola980d ago

The beta blew me away. I can't even imagine how amazing the campaign is going to be.

Stsonic980d ago

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.

HarryMasonHerpderp980d ago

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.

SandWitch980d ago (Edited 980d ago )

OPM magazines aren't biased. Their scores are pretty much always accurate even for a PlayStation first party games

neoMAXMLC980d ago

Uhh... there's no bias here. The Official Playstation magazine is owned by Future publishing who also own the Official Xbox magazine.

NukaCola980d ago

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.

ZodTheRipper980d ago (Edited 980d ago )

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.

neoMAXMLC980d ago


Read Sevir's post below. He explained it best.

sincitysir1980d ago
