Great graphics, interesting universe/setting, free MP DLC..... I'm not hesitant. "I can expect a mechanically inferior version of Far Cry 3" Are we talking about the same game here?.............He's also wrong calling it a "corridor shooter", its more open than any of the past Killzone games.
Lol. the game is not bad. I just worry about how long the campaign will be. This guy is criticizing too much though. Edit: Stealth troll? I am just pointing out in my opinion its not something I like. I am getting an x1.i could care less about forza 5 I hate racing games. so it's garbage to me. Of course this is N4G..no one is allowed to speak their mind if it's something wrong against a game for ps4 right? Edit2: my comment from yesterday is consistent with what i say now..the game is not bad. :-p Poor me. I only got 1 bubble :-( :-p You are very emotional sir.
"Lol. the game is not bad" You played it then? Lucky you! You always seem to say something negative in your comments and then try to balance it out after to hide your stealth troll. Let me ask you, if this was an X1 exclusive, would it still be "not bad"? I don't worry about the games length because ive played the past Killzone games which were a decent length and very good for an FPS.
You can't possibly say that "its not bad" if you haven't played it. I've seen your comment history, you have done this before. "Of course this is N4G..no one is allowed to speak their mind if it's something wrong against a game for ps4 right?" There's a difference between stating your opinion/speaking your mind and blatantly stealth trolling, ive seen you do it in plenty of other PS articles and so have many others. If you didn't have a track record for it then i wouldn't call you out. "Not bad. I'll be sure to check this game out on my brother's ps4" ^^^^Your comment from yesterday i think? Sounds familiar. On topic: Reason number 4 i disagree with, i think Killzone SF is one of the most "staggering" next gen games.
Worried about the length of the campaign? Lol. I guess you're passing on TitanFall all together then right?
They said that Killzone's campaign will be just over 10 hours long.
More open than old killzone doesn't change the fact that it's still a corridor shooter. It's not like it's as Open as Halo or anything. The problem is GG got luck with KZ2 and failed with KZ3.
Failed with KZ3, in your opinion.
Got lucky with KZ2? What a stupid statement. They did not get lucky at all. Killzone 2 was a success because it was their own game with unique controls etc. They failed with Killzone 3 in your opinion because they tried to change it and make it easier for all the cry babies who couldn't play 2. Hopefully shadow fall will be like 2, let all the aim assist gamers stay where they belong....cough " COD"
they got luck with KZ2? where are your brains dude? do you know how many millions of ps3 were waiting for the overhuyped and fake teased killzone 2 and till then didnt have a single game that could be considered a triple A, quality title with allmost no negative press on it!! thats not luck, thats NO CHOICE!!!!
Free mp dlc ???
Yeah, all MP maps are free, then there is season pass for co op features and some other little extras. But all MP maps are completely free.
Every other point is valid except for #2. You can always get the physical copy if you're unsatisfied with the download size (unless a mandatory install is required, then that would suck).
the only reason i am hesitant to getting this is because once cod and bf4 comes out all my friends tend to go play that i much prefer playing with a large group of friends rather than jumping online myself as i get bored. i enjoyed two alot skipped three because of the above, i really want to get into this and if you are getting this on ps4 holla @ me
Lol, find new friends....Killzone friends,there will be plenty playing it come launch.
Ok I think the author at first is trying to justify the 400 dollar price tag of the PS4 based one one Game which to me is ludicrous. I do not have much knowledge about this 50gb install for Killzone. To me this would not make much sense from Guerrillas standpoint, unless the author is referring to the digital copy of the game (why would anyone purchase a 50gb digital title is beyond my level of understanding) I have absolutely no idea what he is speaking about in point three in regards to multiplayer...The author needs to elaborate on that a tad bit more. As far as graphics go this speaks to a larger issue of peoples eyes just not working correctly. Their are some folks who dislike the realism of games because it looks too real. First gamers who are going to play these games on next gen titles must invest in a television that can support what these games can do. To have next gen titles and still have a 32 inch LCD is in my opinion a disservice to yourself. But I understand because its not like LED/OLED televisions is costing 20 bucks. The last point is to me a valid one....Although you can play as the Helghast online like previous Killzone titles, I would love to play Killzone from the prospective of the Helghast just like we played as the arbiter in Halo 3 if I am not mistaken. Just to be able to see both sides of the conflict and play as both would be awesome and based on what I remember form the story of Killzone 2 I am siding with the Helghast...
it was halo 2 and in halo 2 the arbiter was on your side not even like you were playing the bad guy against the good ones and he moves and feels exactly the same
Waiting for my killzone to arrive with my PS4, no hesitate here
he shoots....... TROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLL!!!!!
so with point #3, hes basically hesitant about kz because hes excited for titanfall. nothing wrong with that but i wouldnt want the 2 games to be similar. i for one am glad there wont be jetpacks or mechs in kz, as i hated having them in kz3.
Well... Honestly this guy is just a xbot troll fanboy... and nothing more... I played this game, and KSF is the best FPS this year... Much better than BF4 (played in my computer)... COD GHOST looks shit...
I think the author is trying to convey a good point! Killzone:SF offers nothing New! It's the same exact gameplay as the Ps3 games but just with better graphics. Now before everyone Rage disagrees, or drags some other game into this, or replies back with insults please man-up and list some differences between KZ:SF and KZ2-3. KZ:SF looks GREAT Graphically no question but what are the new Gameplay features? If I was buying a PS4 I would get KZ
maybe ill get back to you after i play it. no one can answer that question right now.
Yep, I remember an OWL in KZ2. And multiple paths to objectives in KZ3. And there was an assault rifle that morphed into a sniper rifle in the first Killzone. If you're talking basic gameplay mechanics, then no shit: it's the same franchise. Why the hell would you go completely changing the baseline mechanics of an established franchise just because it's a new generation? I don't know what type of drastic changes you're expecting, but that's generally not how things work from sequel to sequel, particularly in the FPS genre. As for this sorry excuse for an article.. 1. See above. Also, try not to sound so much like someone who's never played the game in question(which he obviously hasn't) or the franchise at large. Hell, try not to sound like somebody who was looking at a different game entirely(corridor shooting? In THIS Killzone?). Also, it works better if the author doesn't sound like his only reason for getting a PS4 is and will only ever be Killzone. A system seller in and of itself is never going to bring you a return on your investment. It's the reason that pushes you over the edge, but if one game is literally all the reason you've got, then you're better off not buying the console in the first place. 2. WTF? So the problem is with the size of the file? So I guess the author doesn't understand how big games already are on this generation? I guess he forgot the PS4 HDD can be swapped out for much larger ones. I guess he's unaware that people can still go to a store and buy a physical copy. And I guess he wasn't told that's the fully digital version, and not the size installed from the retail disc. Nope, he knows none of that, apparently. Smart guy. 3. Cuz allowing you to customize the multiplayer into various game modes is stripping it down. GG tried the jetpacks and mechs long before Titanfall did; did it occur to the author that, perhaps, they were scrapped for a reason? 4. If that's a reason to be hesitant for Killzone, it should be a reason to be hesitant for EVERY game coming out on the new consoles. But then, if that IS the case, then that's no reason at all. Sounds like grasping for the sake of filling out the list. 5. The only argument that sorta makes sense. But only sorta. Because- in the minds of most rational individuals- being disappointed does not equate to being hesitant. I'm disappointed the PS4 doesn't go to work for me and make the money I need to buy more games for it. I'm not hesitant to own one because of that, though. I'm disappointed my car isn't a Ferrari, but that doesn't make me hesitant to drive it. And then he talks about a wider product, and how all he sees is "tried, tested, safe," but I have to ask where he sees that when the very thing he also says he sees(the cold war deal) essentially contradicts that simply by being there. Edit: The keyword was "drastic." And only the destruction introduced in Battlefield really does that. I guess the open nature of Shadow Fall, and the inclusion of a personal attack, distract, and protect drone in the OWL don't count, but somehow a CQC map does. Really, though, you've made my point for me.
"I don't know what type of drastic changes you're expecting, but that's generally not how things work from sequel to sequel, particularly in the FPS genre. " OK lets see how things in the FPS Generally work. Hmmm lets take COD for example. (can't get more general than that) COD comes out EVERY DAM year yet they always find new things to ADD to change and or enhance Gameplay. COD is all about the DOG this year i guess. COD is the most Generic FPS with the MOST releases YET it always makes changes. BF4 oh darn another FPS, they enhanced Destruction and added Levolution to ENHANCE BF4 over BF3. BF3 added Destruction, background interaction, and a CQC map to enhance it over BF2, BF2 was more tactical and teamwork eccentric to enhance it over BF1942 plus adding Modern weapons. Whoa looks like DICE continually added stuff and generally changed BF gameplay from game to game. FarCry 3 OMG another FPS that made changes from 2 to 3. FC3 pretty much went open world on us and added a slight RPG mechanic to it versus FC1 and 2. FC2 was a bigger Sanbox with back tracking involved and side quest added to make it different from the Linear adventure of FC1 OK to bold for you, well lets take Madden Football as another example. yearly release yet besides updated rosters and graphics Madden always seems to find a few New features added to the game to show off in the commercials and put on the back of the BoX that ENHANCE GAMEPLAY and GAMEPLAY MECHANICS thus making you want Madden 199 and stop playing Madden 198 or whatever number it is. WELL ESTABLISHED Franchises do add NEW FEATURES to slightly change or enhance gameplay. Now I suggest you read my original POST again and keep this post in mind while doing it and just realize how fanboyish or SILLY your post was. .......and like I said don't just RAGE disagree inform me of the NEW KZ changes since OBVIOUSLY you know MORE about how things GENERALLY WORK in the FPS Genre than I do.
Holy wall of text tantrums Batman! Hick, if you think you can write a better article than this author go right ahead. It's really easy to see why you only have three bubbles. You treat the n4g comment section like your personal blog and you spend all your time attacking other users. You really need to reevaluate your priorities in life.
Lots of personal attacks and less of points being made. In fact all I got out of that huge wall of text was you don't approve of him because he doesn't like KZ4. If only you had spent more time actually making sense and actually explaining why KZ4 is a great game instead of sounding like the uni-bomber off his meds, then maybe more people could have got behind you. Absolute fail Hicken, once again.
@ elite the what drastic changes does cod make? ive played every cod and all that changes is killstreaks guns and maps... in this new kz you can slide and cover which you couldnt do on MP in previous ones, theres teleport abilities they allowed destruction of spawn points, the introduction of the owl with zip lines etc, the introduction of being able to vault over walls (never done in previous kzs) over head drop down assasinations, more abilities were added, if anything this KZ changes way more than any cod has
MultiConsoleGamer: A wall of text is just that. No breaks in it whatsoever. Actually, I probably COULD write a better article, and with ease. But I've got enough writing projects in my lap as it is. I'm still wondering what "personal attacks" you guys see. ATi_Elite: You described almost NOTHING that could be considered "drastic." And I gave that one thing credit: the destruction in Battlefield. But then, after you add it, it's just improving or enhancing it from there on. The rest of that stuff was minor at best. And Call of Duty... yeah, definitely not the best series to use for your argument. XboxFun: As per usual, you did absolutely nothing to refute or otherwise discredit anything I said. And you just rode on MCG's coattails as far as the "Personal Attack" thing. I made five numbered points to counter those in the article, plus a few to ATi's original comment AND his reply to mine. And your response has... Oh, no point at all. Typical.
Can't wait for this but kinda agree with point 1, this is nxt gen and kz4 looks to be much of the same apart from the drone, some uses of the New controller. Game looks great though. The order 1886 is my most anticipated nxt gen title so far from trailers we've seen of games so far
"You’re still not playing as the Helghast" This is a good reason, I have my doubts about buying SF, the game looks great, but I don't want play like a ISA's scum. I bought K3 but I couldn't play more of 2 misions, because I couldn't tolerate more the stupid rico. The ISA sucks, this faction has a poor design with 20th century weapons and cliche motivations. The Helghast are more charismatic and have an incredible design with amazing interpretations (Brian Cox - Radec - Visary), they were fighting for their planet. I love play with them in the MP of Killzone 2 ( maybe the best MP with Battlefield 3). However I have a little hope that Echo can be a playable character, In my personal opinion, if SF doesn't have helghast misions, then I wont buy the game.
i still dont understand why everyone has to play as the helghast, maybe they dont want you to play as the helghast bc maybe that would ruin the universe of kz, maybe they tried to make a story line as the helghast (but maybe it was worse than the isa....)
Playing like ISA is very boring and a lot of people feels the same, the public lost the interest for the series since K2. This is the reason of the bad sales (only 2 million against 10 millions of Halo reach). The sales in Europe of K3 are pretty bad ( only 100.000 copies), Killzone's universe is very harmed for the infamous ending of K3, nasty characters ( rico, narville) and the bad story. Killzone is technically a marvel, but its argument is a disaster. I hope a better result at SF. I'd like play like Helghast like the 70% of the fans.
