IGN: Killzone Shadow Fall Review

Killzone has always been a bleak-looking game, a product of its equally bleak story surrounding two factions of warring humans, the Vektans and the Helghast, but Shadow Fall one makes a welcome turn for the colorful. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4) 8.0/10

8 is a solid score,I thought IGN would rate it lower to be honest
-Foxtrot  +   305d ago
It is a solid score....but the same old COD gets an 8.8

I mean WTF.....
SpringHeeledJack  +   305d ago
So they are saying COD ghosts is a better game scoring it 8.8, haha gtfo no way.
Septic  +   305d ago
Yeah please someone explain how COD gets 8.8 and this gets 8? I honestly don't get ign.

Anyway, screw it. The game is what YOU make of it. I can't wait to try it out. Even at a cursory glance, this game looks leaps and bounds above COD.

Actually i recommend watching the video review instead of reading, seems like he really liked the game but with only minor issues.
Also the multiplayer looks amazing!

Cant't wait till Friday, all the reviews in the world cant kill my excitement for the PS4 fully paid for and waiting to be picked up.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   305d ago
8/10, 9/10, 5/10

This is why review scores are pointless....they are just opinions of strangers. Just watch footage for yourself and judge your purchase from that. The only opinion that matters should be your own. Im going to buy this game regardless if its gets straight 10's or straight 1/10's.

Edit: @I am batman

Yeah, thanks for noticing that, my bad.

Reviews aren't pointless. Review scores are pointless. The problem is that most people only look at the scores and compare it to totally different games to determine which is better.
Saviour  +   305d ago
true, review scores shouldn't be considered when picking games but tbh if xbox game had goten these scores forum would be exploding now. but good to see sensible peoples still surf these forums
badz149  +   305d ago
I love KZM and from what I've seen I think I would love KZSF too.
sparced  +   305d ago
Call of Duty and Battlefield are given a pass for producing the same game year after year. Killzone gets it in the neck for not being breaking new ground.

Kotaku have stated with their review they reviewed Killzone's multiplayer after having only 3 hours of playtime at a publisher event. I find that absolutely shocking and is probably the case with site.

All that time and energy invested in a game for journalists to basically give a first impression as it's lasting score.

lol im bouncing review from review here on n4g reading these comments. LOL so now reviews dont matter and EVERY site is somehow biased and mad they didnt get free stuff from sony? yeah, ok
pivotplease  +   305d ago
You don't believe this game is a 5 out of 10 right? There might be some people stretching the truth with talks of bribes, but bias is never out of the question (and it applies to all systems). Shadow Fall, for its time, appears to be on par if not better than the PS3's best launch game, Resistance. Wouldn't you agree?
first1NFANTRY  +   305d ago
Solid score for a launch title. Much better than Cod and BF4. My body is ready.
The_Villager  +   305d ago
Not surprised by this score one bit.

I'll take a review from Colin over Polygon. Colin is probably the only video game reviewer on any site that I've yet to disagree with. Can't say the same about the rest of IGN.

Another IGN Gimped Review!
imt558  +   305d ago
They played game on which difficulty? GameReactor had a problem on HARD.
mii-gamer  +   305d ago
I was expecting a bit higher, still it is a great score. Another solid entry to the series
gamingisnotacrime  +   305d ago
as expected

is a shooter that is not Cod nor Halo, so the range is around 8.0 to 8.5

By what i have seen, KZ has identity issues (pure speculation)
NRGuitarist  +   305d ago
This is a fair score, although it makes no sense in that IGN rated KZ2 a 9.4 and KZ3 an 8.5 and then give Shadow Fall an 8.0 whilst at the same time claiming it's the best entry in the core series.

It sometimes feels like they just slap any old number on there without considering how they've rated other titles that have preceded the one in question.

Oh well, good score and no doubt a great game! :)

Good review Colin. I was expecting an 8. For a launch game I'd say thats pretty darn good. This helped me quit thinking about Polygons vomit enducing poor excuse for a proper review.
Sadist3  +   305d ago
It says the game suffers from AI issues, occasionally poor AI. And the owl revives you in slow motion mode every time you die. Guess this games going back to the store immediately. Glad I didn't open it yet.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   305d ago
Congratulations for letting others opinions influence your own actions. You obviously liked the look of it enough to buy it right? But now you want to take it back because of what a stranger says?

JackVagina  +   305d ago
So COD got a better score then BF4 and KZ?

Seems legit.
_FantasmA_  +   305d ago
If this game was on Xbox, it would have gotten 9.0-9.2.
VaddixBell  +   305d ago
Poor AI is pointed out as a criticism (which is a perfectly legitimate criticism) of Killzone 4 but it's okay to never point out COD's poor AI that's been there for several games now... and has never been touched.

Bit jarring at times when I see these points in what are comparable games to some extent.
BabyTownFrolics  +   305d ago
awesome cant wait
InTheLab  +   305d ago
The thing about the AI bothers me. Killzone 2 and 3 had fantastic AI....

Game looks good though. Will have mine Friday....
LEOPARD1030  +   305d ago
Ouch.......8..?

Again Killzone fails :(

74% at Metacritic, maybe for rent. The worst is the story, playing again like an ISA dog, killing innocent people. GG have that they deserve for despise the Helghast.
kenshiro100  +   305d ago
Okay, sure. Trolls like you give gamers a bad name.
Ulf  +   305d ago
Killzone was never a great series. I know its beloved by Sony fanboys, who have probably never played it, but love screenshots.

BF4 is the PS4's first great shooter. KZ just doesn't compare.

Battlefield 4 didn't do so hot either, I'd say they dropped the ball... It could have been so much better than it was.
mxrider2199  +   305d ago
Killzone has always been a great series in kz3 they wronged their fanbase by making it a more casual online shooter and the casuals still preferred cod now in this one ive heard the ai are too challenging but for ign the ai are too dumb? they must have played on ez bc even killzone 2 on normal in some moments are harder than halo on legendary
Back-to-Back  +   305d ago
cod ghosts still scored higher than BF4. How does that make you feel
iiorestesii  +   305d ago
Makes me feel like these scores have a primary objective outside of consumer awareness.
ironmonkey  +   305d ago
Based on most of the reviews its gonna be a 7 and just because its suppose to be the next gen graphics and res doesn't mean your gonna get perfect scores. These games are expected to look better for it is next gen but reviews aren't going to change. Pcs have had these graphics years ago. I'm just happy to finally enjoy it on a console finally. Can't wait to get my hands on this game.
James Vanderbeek  +   305d ago
so a 10 hour single player vs 4 hours and a deeper online and it gets an 8. haha.
iiorestesii  +   305d ago
AI in COD is way more easily scripted as the enemies are mostly in fixed positions. Also stealth scenes are linear. This seems like one of the most non linear FPS outside of Halo. Crafting this AI seems to me to be a different process than any of the previous calzones. I mean KZ's.

BUT BUT BUT 1080P ??
