A 6 huh? Yeah OK pal
I love the barely one paragraph on mp which was more a description that a review. Weak.
reviewers are full of shit.. the guy didn't put his hand on multiplayer, maybe only Botzone like many did last week.

I usually buy killzone thinking its gonna be better than the last one but always get disappointed . I'm not buying the one after this one, that's for sure.
Is it true that doesnt have ingame chat??
6/10 is about what I'd give it. +Gorgeous game -Unnecessarily Difficult -Standard fare for multiplayer. It reminds me a lot of the crysis series. Pretty to look at but a snore-fest to play.
I hear that the multiplayer is amazing!!! where did you hear it was standard??
I didn't hear it was standard fare, I actually played it and saw it for myself.
Don't get me wrong this game is by no means a masterpiece and the series leaves a bit to be desired. However, this game does exactly what it aims to do and looks amazing while doing it. A 6 is too low. C'mon these guys have to be more reasonable, and oh yeah try out the multiplayer 7.5 out of 10. PS4 is amazing.
TBH if you look at the reviews of most fps games they are getting lower scores in general and I think that is because there is nothing new about them any more and people are getting bored of the same old fps. Yes KZ is a good looking game so is bf but there is nothing much that sets them apart from the other fps games. I'm kind of hoping fps sales start to slip now so developers have to come up with new ideas like titan fall etc. I'm sure people are loving this game but for me at the moment fps games are not getting me excited even the next gen fps games and I don't think im alone with that and the reviews are also showing this of the new fps games. Like I say nothing against kz, cod, bf etc just think we need to see something new.
Wow this reviewer trolls way to much don't give em hits killzone is a great game
This game is really incredible. One of the better shooters I've played in a long time. Smooth, Precise, and let me emphasize... EXCELLENT MAPS!! I have yet to play a map where I hate it. Usually I hate 50% of the COD maps. Every map in the game is excellent! Two thumbs up! And we get FREE MAP DLC for the life of the product!!
they also gave cod ghosts a 6/10 (x360 version). Just Saying... damn... cod ghosts is = to KZsf on a last gen system, loooool. ...Doubt IT!
being on a next gen platform doenst make a game better
only in a sense. in COD's case, being on a last gen system DID make the game worse. they completely limited the MP down to 6v6. but i guess that is all an opinion as well if you think down-grades are good (or prefer 6v6). but they are basically saying KZsf's 10-12 hour campaign is as bad as cod ghosts (pretty shoddy, from what everyone is saying) 3.5-4 hour campaign... while they barely reviewed the MP. horrible review imo, just because you have an opinion doesnt make it professional, which, is very common in this industry.
With that comment you have debunked 99% of these small fanboys on N4G. Thank you :)
This is why you must never listen to reviews or metacritic. Case in point movie wise. I went to see Thor the darkworld with family and really enjoyed it. Yet if you read the reviews, it gets slated. Not every movie/game is supposed to be deep deep deep.
Honestly, it seems like a lot of people view reviews the wrong way. Reviews aren't suppose to make you want to buy or prevent you from buying something. They're suppose to be informative articles that give you unbias (in the sense that the company isn't the one saying it) opinions to give you an idea of what to expect. Like if you want a child friendly game and that is what Knack is and does well, then who cares what it scores. It meets exactly what you're looking for. However, too many people seem to think that reviewers are these godly beings that have the right to dictate what items we should and should not buy regardless of what they say or why they say it.
People also write reviews incorrectly.
@ WeAreLegion It is true that many people think a review is an expression of personal opinion, when in reality they're suppose to think of things in terms of the target market and rate it accordingly. Like Knack might suck for the Killzone fan, but is awesome for the 8 year old. However, I didn't want to go on a long winded rant.
Worst console launch ever Metacritic has this around 70/100 So take away all the official Sony mags then you have to say 6/10 is about right for this game Bring on titanfall (Titanfall on pc? Enjoy on ms windows!) you can't escape ms if you want to play a great game like titanfall :-)
Yea bring on Titan fall. On my PC. Till then I'll have my ps4 games when I get one. ;) Oh didn't you hear? MS is bringing it's core games to PC. So why would I get an Xbone?
Quickly everyone listen to Pascalini. Worst console launch ever....sells 1 million in 2 days. Worst console launch ever....reads user reviews and notices 8+ across the board Worst console launch ever.... Bring on titanfa....oh wait that's not a console launch on XO I really don't see why you only have one bubble. Blows my mind smartest gut on n4g. /s
As long as I don't have to support the bone I will play it on windows. I actually love windows, I do like a lot of Microsoft products...
It's a wonder you have just one bubble. OT: 6/10 for this game is way too low for me. Then again, just his opinion.
My god, is all your family as hairy as you? OT. Yo obviously don't like Sony games. Good for U. But just think of all the great games your missing out on!
I really have to say something. Pascalini, the ps4 is really awesome and killzone is a GREAT FPS. I highly recommend you try it. I feel bad that your perspective is skewed because I've been playing it hardcore and its really an amazing title. Hope to see you try it.
"honestgamers", what a joke.
they gave alan wake a 2/10 so i can't take this site seriously
Alan Wake is my favorite last gen game, your comment made me cry.
Yeah, that definitely does discredit them. Shadowfall is at least an 8/10 and them giving Alan Wake a 2/10- yeah right..
Alan Wake was a 5 at best. For me the worst game I played last gen.
Why are people hating on Killzone and gives COD a 9 =(
They could put COD out and have it delete your MP progress each time you reach max prestige. It would get a 9/10. Same hacks pop up.. still 9/10. However, they say COD is getting old..but its never reflected in the scores for COD. Money, or stupidity? Your guess is as good as any.
you mean this CoD? http://www.metacritic.com/g... The one getting middling reviews? oh wow, look at all those 9's from bias reviewers /s PS fans need to drop the cod conspiracy theory, it makes absolutely no sense in this case. Both games are pretty meh.
No, I mean COD in general. I don't get that. Surely you do not think Ghost is when COD started getting bad? All the players from COD4 who knew you could go under the map/outside on Ambush. These same issues are still here. MW2, insane prestige hacks, you would get called a hacker for being prest 10, or asked if you could hack for people, all the time. BO people had to get reset for score hacking etc. Sure stuff happens, but the same issues are appearing every time. What scores did the following CODs get? It's not about Ghosts only. Fact is, COD is allowed to walk by with a lot of the issues 'reviewers' label as problems for other games. They pick at it, but it's never factored in the games score. Just because Ghost happens to have a few more bad reviewers than the previous, does it make it any better? You bet if KZ was as unplayable as GTA, reviewers would be flipping scores all over the place. Pretending to be unaware of that is beyond delusional.
Kill-zone is not that awesome like people think. Only butt-hurt fan-boys will tell you that Kz is a 9 or 10 game.
The irony is strong with this one....Soooooo you're saying people who like the series can't give the game their own subjective score? Hm Yet you call them butt hurt fanboys ..interesting
I don't think KZ series is 9 or 10 out of 10. But itis the best FPS series I have played to date. You either like it or not? Who cares? I like it. Call me selfish. ; P
Really! The best huh? Just wow! Well everyone is entitled to their opinion.
Your wrong. Try it. Its an excellent game.
The Killzone franchise will always be a dud in my eyes -- It lacks lasting appeal, gameplay, and art direction. It sacrifices performance for pretty graphics. In previous installments, Devs introduced a weighted aim and accelerated control for a "realistic feel," when it's actually an excuse to prevent screen tearing at 30 fps. This game will be dead just like its little Vita brother before we know it.
"This game will be dead just like its little Vita brother before we know it. " ignorance. Killzone 2, 3, and mercenary all have active communities and there is no problem getting in a game.
I have the game and am playing through it. I'll put it like this: If you've been sissified by the more mainstream approach brought about by the PS3, 360, Wii gen then you're going to suck at this game and be frustrated by it. If your the type that isn't bothered by, or even prefers, a difficult game that doesn't hold your hand, then you'll love Shadowfall. This game isn't frustrating to me. I don't even find it to be that difficult once you get the hang of things. It's not going to hold your hand though. You have to use your head in conjunction with the tools at your disposal, and be aware of your environment. The objectives are pretty clear. You just hit up and it gives you the objectives as well as pointers telling you where to go and how far. If that's giving people problems, I really don't know what to say, other than they may want to stick to games like the dumbed down Prince of Persia, Ubisoft made to appeal to casuals, where you couldn't die.
Lost everyone when you called out console gamers.
WTF are you talking about? I am a console gamer. Even if I had called out console gamers, like you thought, what would that have to do with my points? Try to engage the material you read with more concentration, in the future.
he doesn't even review the multiplayer. he just mentions it in passing. so many lazy, ignorant reviewers. also the campaign isnt even that hard. this guy obviously is used to a game that holds his hand and practically beats itself. the game gives you more than enough tools to get through. its just about being smart enough to use them.
Exactly. I have the game. I'm playing it on hard. It's really not that difficult. Some of these reviews from the disgrace that is the gaming media are like giving a low score to a weight set because the reviewer isn't strong enough to lift the weights.
You are as great as this review! Fact. Appreciate the complement.
Good review! Killzone has never been a top shooter and never will be! Sony can keep throwing money at GG but it wont improve! Standard shooter with crap story line! Great visuals but really is that the only reason most of you want to play this game!? PS4/Xbone not worth buying till next summer! You know im rite if you put it in logic!
Logically speaking, you haven't detailed any flaws of the game to warrant anyone saying that your are "rite."
logically speaking I was speaking about the consoles! Killzone is just a standard shooter like I said after campaign is complete you probably wont play again! no depth single player! Online is fun but nothing special! What I do give killzone is that it will be looked after with free dlc etc! So its worth buying as you will be playing for long time! But you cant say its a top top shooter! Im from a era of goldeneye's,half life and timespliter's! When shooters had more going for them!
@Frodosmugins All you are doing is spouting generalities. Doing so repeatedly, does nothing to prove your point.
lol what do you want to hear its not 1080p!? enjoy your poor man's COD!
You're absolutely right with both your comments. Goldeneye was special and unique. Please don't let the kids on n4g get to you. They are just confused.
We've already played it at this point. We're all loving it. ^_^
Not giving this site another hit.
Sorry, played it, it's better than a 6. It's not a 9, but it's not a 6.
who is this retard reviewing this great game, he hasnt even played any Killzone games in the past
I am primarily a PC gamer but I'm really enjoying Killzone. It isn't the standard pseudo-real world schlock that we've come to be so familiar with. I actually get to enjoy a story that tries to be different. The multiplayer is also way more creative and involving than a Call of Duty. Not as interesting as Battlefield 4 though.
I believe the game title is a typo. Its not Shadow Fall its Shadow Fail.
Yet again Killzone divides reviewers. You either like it or don't. Killzone doesn't hold your hand. It's a tough game & some people just don't get it. Tough.
site downvoted. hey...we all have opinions right?
I wish the copy I received from gamefly wasn't damaged, I was really excited to play this on Friday. Now I'm playing the waiting game they still haven't mailed out my replacement copy yet. Either way I'm ready to play through the game and get a small glimpse what the ps4 is capable of doing.
Sick graphics but the "OWL" micromanage sucks!
