Killzone: Shadow Fall review - LogiaGamer

With two years of development and a budget is not very high for the current standards, the guys at Guerrilla Games debut in PS4 with Killzone: Shadow Fall, first-person shooter that accompanies the new console at launch.

What did you think to critique the debut of the franchise on PS4? Shadow Fall has somewhat disparate notes, as his highest score is 9.0, while the lowest is a mediocre 5.0.

The most praised the program is its graphic section, and stands as one of the finest examples of currently running at 1080p at 30 frames per second on the single-player, and 60 frames per second in multiplayer. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4) 7.8/10

im actually excited about this game compared to the other exclusives.

This game better sell well, or Guerrilla might find themselves under serious pressure from Sony to find a new lead or fire some of the team. I and sure a lot of money went into this game. I don't buy based on reviews, but a majority of the core gamers seem to. These numbers are not matching the hype. Expectations were very high these numbers and the reviews themselves are average for well known shooters. As it stands, Battle field is the big winner, even if it is beaten by COD. COD is also underperforming right now.

yeah but call of duty and battlefield aren't exclusives.
dont get me wrong i am excited with those 2 games as well but i am more excited for killzone just because its an exclusive.
MajorJackHoff  +   475d ago
I've gotta say, I'm sorely disappointed that this game hasn't quite lived up to expectations. Not that I've played it yet, but general critic consensus is 7.5-8/10. That's not bad by any stretch, but idk, this game looked extremely promising and the best in the series, but from what I've read it's the weakest installment yet. I'll still play it, but I'm definitely not as excited as I was a few days ago.

Most of these KZ SF reviews have barely touched the MP.
Now imagine how it would have gone over if COD Ghosts was reviewd on SP only?
nirwanda  +   475d ago
Reading the reviews I think all they need is someone to write a decent screenplay and someone good at A.I.
Game-ur  +   475d ago
You will lose out on many great games if you get easily influenced by numbers, if I did then I would have missed games like BF:BC2, BF3, Vanquished and more.

And the positive reviews are plenty but people don't comment on them:


Many other sites are holding the reviews until the go more hands on with MP, so far all say the MP is great
MajorJackHoff  +   474d ago
I don't really get your logic.

I've played games for many years, and usually when critics peg a game around a 7, and then I play the game, it's basically a 7 or 8. Which by my standards is a C to B. That means it's a good game, but not a great game. Why do when games get lower review scores, the scores DON'T MATTER, but when a game scores 9's and 10's, people like you brag about the metascore? I'm just saying. I'm sure the game is going to be fun, but my opinion about this not being the best in the series is a valid one. I was hoping for this game to be THE standard for Killzone games, but it looks like it's going to fall short of that goal.
Brazz  +   475d ago
In my opinion...Forza and killzone are hands down the best lauch titles of next gen.

people don't buy FPS for single player or atleast that what i been told, for me personally KZ series is for Multi-Player and that's what has improved for KZ:SF
4lc4pon3  +   475d ago
false i love single player games.
supes_24  +   475d ago
Same here, I love the single player component of video games. I'm a big movie person so I prefer to play the "movie" mode of video games. I'll buy this game on Friday but I won't spend much time in the MP. I'm not saying it won't be good, but it's not my preference, and I never spend much time in MP no matter what the game.
PoSTedUP  +   475d ago
i like KZ for the single player, its one of the few FPS where i actually jump back and forth from SP to MP. most other FPS i jump right into MP and ever touch SP.

__MP--------- SP__
#1 KZ:M- #1 KZ2
#2 KZ2-- #2 KZ3
#3 KZ3-- #3 KZ:M

imo. they were all good good tho. KZSF looks to be better than all of them MP-wise. well see about SP.

i guess well let the sales speak for themselves, cod bf and kz all seem to be getting mixed reviews. i bet they are good, except for cod : P.
ThatEnglishDude  +   475d ago
Of course the sales will be good. It's a launch game, and quite frankly, there's not too much to pick from.
PoSTedUP  +   475d ago
there is a lot more compared to ps3 launch (and beyond). reason why resistance1 sold so much. this time there are a lot more critically acclaimed games going up against it and a lot more great games launching shorty after plus way more third party support. but sorry i really meant like sales compared to cod and bf; thoes kind of numbers. lets see if it can keep up despite the mixed reviews* and what people really like.
DirtyPimp  +   475d ago
hell yea, the owl looks badass
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   475d ago
Something really bothers me with almost every one of these reviews. Cod and bf4 have short sp exerpeiences that were absolutely slammed by reveiwers but there abysmal sp gets overlooked and still gets 9 where as Killzones campaign is criticized to high hell even though Killzone is more of a mp game and all the reviews give one liners praising mp
boeso  +   475d ago
I think its really hard to review a game. Do you review it based on past Killzone games or based on all games or FPS games. Theres a million combinations. A million opinions and millions of people playing the games. : )

Its early current gen all over again as i feared. Everyone gets a pass except for Sony exclusives.
Majin-vegeta  +   475d ago
Member this game has no "Aim Assist".Thats why it gets downvoted.Journalists are used too games holding their hands.
mhunterjr  +   475d ago
I think you are making things up. Previously, console shooters all used some sort of Aim-assist to make up for how insensitive joysticks were. The DS4 essentially solved this problem, by having such a minuscule dead zone. I haven't seen reviews complaining about kz:SF controls. In fact most praised the responsiveness of the controls and the omission of Aim assist. They were complaining about uninspiring AI and poor level design.

Honestly, most of the reviews I have read say really good things about the core game and just nit pic stuff like long downtimes, flying sequences, and plat forming areas. The funny thing is GG tried to do some different things and got nailed for it. Game reviewers sit down and play these games in one sitting, so these sequences might annoy them whereas they might be perfectly acceptable to your average gamer. I am not trying to rewrite these reviews, I am just saying people should not cancel their preorders. Except for a few bias reviews the overall reviews have been pretty good. Sure there are a few 6s and 7s out there, but there are also 8s and 9s and more of the latter. The gAme is not mediocre or even average, it's a solid fps with great graphics. It's not a blockbuster, but if I only bought blockbuster games I would have missed out on some of the best gaming experiences I have had.
scott182  +   475d ago
Good reviews, not great, but that's ok. I'm still way excited for it, can't wait to play.
Destrania  +   475d ago
It really deserves great reviews. All the stuff I've seen as to why it gets lower points from certain publications is really nit-picky stuff that really doesn't detract from everything else the game does amazingly well. Stunning visuals, solid gameplay, great MP. It's kind of bs if you ask me. Oh well, I know this game will blow me away. Only two more days until Greatness arrives!

It is getting slammed for being to hard and not holding your hand through.

There is the occational comment on how bad the AI is, random hatred, how the lips arent always sync'ed right and bad voice acting.

But in the sea of reviews its getting praise for its AI and acknowledge for being the best story presented by GG to date. And anyone who have seen the Polygon video review know the guy just sucked at the game real bad and not knowing the simplest mechanics of the game (pressing up on the D pad) and some other guy bashing it for being difficult had too big of an ego to turn the difficulty down to easy complaining the game played the same music every time he died at the same place like at least 30 times. just made me rofl. and complaining he supposedly couldnt see the objective marker when you call up on the D pad because its small and drowning in sharp ultra HD fidelity quality lmao... Well I can see it just fine on my crappy laptop screen of youtube videos.

I reckon that it is not a 10/10 MGS gstory, but the best story GG has made is a huge plus, Kz2 was awesome with a couple shortcomings primarily writing/voice acting for most characters.

So I believe the game is just fine, probably could use a patch or something for things like Lip syncing, bugs and so on.

3-4 odd bad reviews that are so transparent it is funny.

a mediocre score for killzone game not surprised here .......
this game just looks great sharing a similarity with previous killzones
except Killzone 2 was really good

will get this in the bargain bin
Strange  +   475d ago
Polygon gave it a 5.

Why am I not surprised?
sorane  +   475d ago
You mean the same polygon that every ps4 fanboy and there mother was quoting this from for the last month?


So now all the sudden it's not trustworthy since it gave a bad game a bad score? You ps4 people sure keep the laughs coming on my end :) Hypocrisy at it's finest on this site. It got plenty of other bad reviews from other sites also. Maybe put the blame where it actually deserves to be aka the game creators, and stop falsely accusing people who are just reviewing a game.

Please, it was so obviously bias it's pathetic. MS propaganda machine. If you don't believe there is money floating around these reviews you are blind. Just look at Halo games. They always pull off high scores for doing the exact same thing. Enter KZ and doing the same thing is it's biggest sin.
sorane  +   475d ago
So you're saying MS payed for the bad reviews and Sony paid for the good reviews. So you're left with a game that's a 7/10. Get over it.

Lol, the way sony diehards praised this game, i expected solid 10's from every site. I mean, it's 1080P, right? That's the only thing that matters! Right?!
Majin-vegeta  +   475d ago
At least its 1080...wanna keep it up buddy?
karl  +   475d ago
dude dont acto like sony fanboys are the only ones that do this..

xbox fanboys have been yelling for years about better textures or less pop in , or the lack of grass in the mafia2 ps3 version..

now suddenly graphics dont matter anymore and its all about the games....

games. and those were plenty on the ps3 compared to the 360...

soo dont be an ass, fanboys are fanboys regardless of the console they like
MainstreamGamer  +   475d ago
karl, I agree completely these fanboys are a bunch of hypocrites, especially the xbox kind.
DRambo  +   475d ago
Games are as good as the developers. Fact is good developers will produce AAA titles at 1080 on PS4. If your hardware isn't up to it, there's bugger all you can do i.e. XBox1.
mxrider2199  +   475d ago
I dont understand these reviews they all praise everything but a few moments in single player but then take 2 full points of the score??? how does bf4 and ghosts get a better score than shadowfall when both fail on many aspects and were copy and pasted?
Majin-vegeta  +   475d ago
*Hands money*
deadfrag  +   475d ago
I think people over react because of game scores, 7/10 its a good game that people will sure enjoy especially the fans of the franchise and non trolls!The problem with the scores in the pass generation is that people seem to need always 9 and 10/10 to make a game a solid buy but that's just wrong a 7 its a solid experience,it does not reinvent or add nothing new to the formula but its still enjoyable like always.I play games for about 30 years i think i can discern whats a good game from a bad one when im playing it,the formula is there if i enjoy the prequels im sure im going to enjoy the next game on the KZ franchise i knoow that GG are not a mediocre development team for start!
