"Before starting this review, I admittedly went into Killzone: Mercenary with a set of expectations. As the fifth game in the series, it’s certainly not hard to imagine what you’re getting into.
Bombed out urban environments? Check. Menacing looking and sounding Helghast? Check. Futuristic weapons that fire bullets and slightly resemble current firearms? Check. The list goes on and on.
And that’s not even considering the track record of shooters on Sony’s handheld, which range from the forgettable (Unit 13) to the downright atrocious (Call of Duty: Declassified).
So you can imagine my surprise when the Vita exclusive by Guerilla Cambridge proceeded to at least sway some of my preconceived notions."
