GIZORAMA - Since 2006, the Killzone franchise has had a rough time taking its rightful place on a portable PlayStation device. The awkward, over-the-head third person shooter Killzone: Liberation was a weak imitation. Killzone: Mercenary has the right idea, but is still missing some of the key elements that made me fall in love with Guerilla Games’ previous entries.
Mercenary places players in the role of Aaron Danner: a bad-to-the-bone mercenary who caters only to the side that can cut him the bigger check. When Danner is faced with the largest moral dilemma of his career, he begins to wonder if the life of an innocent child is more important than his promised bundle of cash.
