Killzone: Shadowfall Review | GamesBeat

"Killzone: Shadow Fall is a pretty game, gorgeous even. But the demand for moments to punctuate trailers or demos forced a sacrifice of story that it never quite recovers from. The OWL will find its place in history as one of the few controller-based mechanics to actually entertain, while the time spent in free fall may make players actually consider a plummet-related death. You find a stride in the minute-to-minute gameplay before drudgery sets in, and the multiplayer suite remains solid, if with a few new tenuous bells and whistles.

The end result is a game that is worth playing, but hardly a seller of systems: an average soldier in an above average unit."

Just two, out of a bunch that have been just fine (IGN 8, GameTrailers 8.8, Destructiod 9).

@ The bunch below: So let's simply focus on weaker scores and ignore the better ones. Got it.

@ gillri: You're about as spot on as a broken clock.

Polygon gave it a 5 out of 10...Who pissed in there cheerios...

It's at about 7.5 overall.

This 67% is a bit below the belt too...

Comments like this are quite harsh...

"May make players actually consider a plummet-related death".... and "before drudgery sets in"....

Eurogamer gave it 7/10 and Polygon a 5/10.

@Freak of Nature

RE: Polygon, reminder that when they were struggling to take off, Microsoft gave them a nice little gift of $700,000. Not saying they're biased as shit or anyth-

Actually wait. No. Disagrees be damned. They be biased as hell.

Lalanana1621d ago

67 not that bad ..greatness awaits of course.

rdgneoz31621d ago

And polygon took $750k from MS to make a documentary about itself and yet they review the competitions' games...

Muerte24941621d ago

This site has given every game on ps4 a low score so far.
Killzone 67/100

Contrast 55/100

Resogun 65/100

Let see what they give Ryse and Dead Rising 3

All of these reviews are being taken out of contex of the real situation. A lot of this hate is coming from the singleplayer. They put the following statement in bold, large text, and separated it from the rest of the article paragraph...

"A slick, solid multiplayer"

So yea maybe the single player is terrible. That's not why I buy FPS games anymore so I could care less.

I dunno. I've always been of the mindset that 67% (Also why the hell would you do that and not just a straight up 7/10? What REALLY is the .3% difference in these cases?) and other such ratings should be seen as "Hey this game's kinda average and okay!" rather than "Who the hell took a shit in my game's case?"

StraightPath1621d ago

:( so many bad reviews. Well killzone franchise was never great to begin with 2 was only decent one. Rest was pretty bad and just good graphics only thing going for it.

cyhm31121621d ago

to be honest, this site is biased too. I can't see this game get less than at least a 7.5

GarrusVakarian1621d ago

Its had a 5/10......and this review score is 6.7......both less than what you say.

Starbucks_Fan1621d ago

These lower scores don't annoy me one bit. I am playing this because of how wonderful the graphics are, and reviewers are loving it too.

Jeedai Infidel1621d ago

Graphics should always be second to gameplay, otherwise developers will just hand us polished turds.

That's not a comment towards this game, but towards this attitude. This whole resolution debate has me worried that graphics will become the driving factor of next-gen game design.

Gran Turismo the king..
Killzone series always medicore FPS.
