Killzone: Shadow Fall’s multiplayer, at least in terms of pacing, falls somewhere between Halo and Call of Duty.

except it looks 800% better, is 900% more badass, and there is no auto aim.

Deltaguy1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

this will not in anyway be better then Halo or battlefiled online...sorry it's no where near that great looking gameplay and you wonder why titanfall ( a worse looking game graphically ) got all the looks fun...

thekhurg1474d ago

What are you rambling on about?

thereapersson1474d ago

Delta guy, it looks like you just mashed keys on the keyboard and something incoherent came out. Likely another post moderators will let slide, as they seem to arbitrarily choose what trolling behavior they want to allow

That's my main issue with KZ in is much, much more than just a pretty game, but when compared to other big shooters, it just is not as fun (IMO). Not that i haven't enjoyed it or anything, but it just does not quite play as smooth as other games. I am fully willing to bet that if KZ had not been such a graphical powerhouse that the gameplay alone would not carry it. Halo has become so much more popular because most people find it more engrossing and intense than KZ...and to be fair, KZ usually looks better graphically (halo 4 kinda made up some of that graphical diff). Any how, I really do not play either for much more than a month or two past release, as i spend my MP time with CoD.

@ Germrod

Guerrilla Games reinvented the series with new multiplayer mechanics, a built-from-the-ground-up engine, and helped shape the controller you will be using to be more precise and responsive, and you are going to write off Killzone: Shadowfall simply on the basis of a last-gen sentiment? You play Call of Duty a lot, so I can sort of see why you would adopt that mentality. You are used to a developer that doesn't do anything to improve the feel of their games, and caters to the lowest common denominator.

Please do not take offense to my comment as it is not intended as a personal attack on your preference. I just dislike Call of Duty for many reasons, just as you have a lower opinion of Killzone. I just think you should give Shadowfall a chance before writing it off.

KZ3 was awesome to play online and real fun. My only gripe is the lack of weapons and mods.

Even thought the other 4 games mentioned above are all shooters, they ALL play differently and ALL offer different experiences. We should just be glad that we get these different shooters to play.

ufo8mycat1474d ago

Sorry but Deltaguy is right

Gameplay > Graphics

abzdine1474d ago

actually if you ask anyone who played KZ2 online for somr time they will tell that it's one of the best FPS and fun multiplayer ever made.

I bought BF: BC2 and it bored me to death but the fun and intensity from KZ2 was just too addictive to enjoy any "similar" experience next to.

That's my opinion, and also the opinion of many.

"feels like a mix between Halo and Call of Duty"

you know what

That's exactly what I thought when i saw a clip of the multiplayer about a week and a half ago.

I thought 'this looks like Halo! - the shield, the colour, the rocks, the layout of the map'

The sad thing is I didn't dare post it on n4g because I knew I'd get flamed for it.

Yet, here we are.
Looks like I am not the only one that made this observation.

ZodTheRipper1473d ago

How about not comparing games with each other? Killzone is Killzone, it always was awesome in it's own way.

SolidStoner1473d ago

I have to admit.. BF has one of the best multiplayer so far.. it has everything I need (except I would better see BF 1942 or Vietnam.. instead they are heading into future, there are way to many games nowdays with that future taste..)

Halo and COD is just way overrated.. they both are milked dry..

and I cant say nothing about KZ.. I never played PS4 and never tried KZ shadow fall multiplayer! I hope it will be badass!

HammadTheBeast1473d ago

Killzone 2's multiplayer shits on most MP games out there. It's easily better than CoD's and can compete with BF.

Halo, I'm not going to talk about, it used to be good up to 3, but now it's pretty bad.

"Killzone: Shadow Fall’s multiplayer, at least in terms of pacing, falls somewhere between Halo and Call of Duty"

... LOL, the two games that Playstation fanboys hate the most.

EDIT: Actually i don't think Halo or Killzone are anything special. Average games way overhyped by fanboys and gaming media.

Battlefieldlover1474d ago

And xbox fanboys hate killzone... Guess that's why your here?

ShinMaster1474d ago

First of all, what are you doing in a PS4 exclusive article?

Second, there is hate for COD from the PC, Xbox, Nintendo and PlayStation fanbase. And not caring for Halo is not the same as hate.

He doesn't know how Warzone functioning, he doesn't know which class have some abilities, he doesn't know which weapon is the best for some situation. He doesn't know there is no aim-assist or auto-aim. He knows nothing. :-D Well, he didn't played KZ2, so i presume he is a player for fast-paced shooters.

AndrewLB1474d ago

It seems Sony is still using those same images from E3 that look far better than the finished product. Anyone else notice the over-use of depth of field and fog? It looks to me that Sony has added these in order to reduce LOD so they can claim 1080p. All you have to do is look at the view distance in the most recent screenshots of Killzone. Add fog + reduce view by half = higher frame rates.

Hicken1474d ago

... I guess it never occurred to you that the images chosen were at the article's discretion, not Sony's.

isa_scout1473d ago

Try downloading the ultrahigh bitrate video off It is absolutely beautiful. Sony doesn't have to hide a thing as Guerilla always pushes out amazing graphics.


depending what and what it's taken from halo and Cod, it could be a very good thing or a very bad thing. Not long before I get to find out for myself.

Detoxx1474d ago

It just looks better, THAT'S IT.

IHassounah1473d ago

Wait a minute , I didn't know that Halo got auto-aim ?

Muffins12231473d ago (Edited 1473d ago )

When has killzone had a better multiplayer than halo?Come on you know your just bullshitting yourself with that statement.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

Sounds like it will play very well then. I could never play Killzone 2 or 3 online because I hate 30fps and floaty controls. Now that's outta the way I'm ready!!

Kinger89381474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

I agree to an extent, i didnt mind the weighty feel but yea going back to kz3 now the frame rate can be pretty bad. Also i always found it really noisy lol weird thing to moan about but just when you die and everyones crawling around making noise, just irritated me! Does this game still have the downed system where you can be revived?

Also kz3 lacked game modes so hopefully all these options in this game will add to this


till today I still don't get how some killzone fans pass off a visible delay (imputlag) as a weighty feel to killzone controls.

Battlefield has a sense of weight to it, yet no problems with control delays. I didn't play killzone 3 but I owned killzone 2 and I tried very hard to play a lot of that game but in the end I just could not get into it because of the delay.

everyone kept making out like it's normal, but it's the only game I have played that I can think of that has artificial imputlag passed off as "weighty feel".

I hope SF, does not have the same feel to the controls because that would instantly put me off it. other then that i am looking forward to trying it out.

spektical1473d ago (Edited 1473d ago )

what delay are you talking about? lol. I've played BF, KZ,COD, and a range of other FPS games, and by far Killzone had the most weight, you felt it on the character. I can't think of any other game that has made that sort of connection.


exactly my point.

if you played kz2 right from it's launch then you will know what I am talking about. You will also know that they patched it.

If you started playing it later on after the patch then of course you will not know what I am talking about at all.

Or you could just be one of those people I am talking who thought imputlag = weighty feel.

it was a big issue at the time, just google it.

imt5581474d ago

KZ : SF has a almost the same weight feel like KZ2.

ovnipc1474d ago

Can any one confirm this?

NateCole1474d ago

Floaty controls?.

I don't know which KZ game you played because KZ does not have floaty controls.

RTheRebel1474d ago

Ill wait for the reviews on this one, not wasting money like a did the piece of shit that was Killzone 3.

RTheRebel1474d ago

Game was a piece of krap.
Killzone 2 on the other hand was my 2nd favorite Shooter this gen, but Sony Drones will dislike everything if it isn't Sony Is Awesome @[email protected]

ufo8mycat1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

YOu must not play many shooters TheRebel

Bioshock Infinite
Far Cry 3

THese were all faaaaaaaaaaaar superior shooters

HammadTheBeast1473d ago

lol no. Bioshock Infinite was bad in gameplay terms, Killzone 2 had the best multiplayer of its time.

purp13m0nk3y1473d ago

Farcry 3 was a repetitive POS. Get past the flashy graphics and it got old real quick.

Bioshock on the other hand. Gold!

Got to admt though. I really enjoyed KZ2 MP. Was a lot of fun. KZ3 was a bit hit and miss for me. I actually had heaps more fun with the MP free beta than I did with the retail version lol.

TheFallenAngel1473d ago

Actually it was the other way around with me. I hated killedzone 2 but I liked killzone 3. Shadow fall looks way better gameplay wise, hopefully it will be.

Ashby_JC1473d ago

I was messing with you on my first comment. But pretty much I never played 1 or 3 for Killzone. Played #2. It wasnt bad but also not as great as some make it.

It comes down to preference. I prefer larger scale action like MAG or Battlefield series.

Oh well... Targets got the buy two get one free. Bf4/ghosts/kzsf

HolyDuck1474d ago

So your PS4 launch is going to consist of 3 FPS's.

To each their own I guess, enjoy it.

Crossbones1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

O_o I'll be the judge rather than listening to what somebody says.
