Killzone: Shadowfall Review | Gameplanet

"Shadow Fall opens capably but quickly deteriorates into a series of boring firefights against thick enemies, interspersed with the genre's hoariest touchstones and some ill-conceived non-combat sections and mechanics. No-one is the least bit sympathetic, and the better story beats are smothered by an unrelenting, despairing tone."

Gave Battlefield a 9 and COD a 7.. Credibility = 0. Talks about uninspired story lines and predictable firefights, yea, because neither of those other 2 suffer from that.

What a joke.

Gamingcapacity1040d ago

In akk fairness they might have different reviewers that look for different things on their site. That's why we're looking into getting rid of the score system on our site.

FlunkinMonkey1040d ago

yea i hear that, the problem with that is that the reviews lack consistency as most people will relate reviews to the site, not to the specific authors.

If i see a 5.5 for KZ and a 7 for COD i'm going to think 'F*** this site', and that's exactly what i think.

@FlunkinMonkey:
Agree. I'm playing both KZSF and CoD and I'm enjoying them, but there is no way one is a 5 and the other one a 7.

I just think the reviewers in these days just write their reviews for them self instead of for the gamers (see : I want to be famous, I need hits!)

The Killer1040d ago

a nasty way to get hits in the reviewer's site.

abzdine1040d ago

reviewers are full of it!

Boody-Bandit1040d ago

The only way this stops is if you don't give them hits. Said it before and I will say it again, "IMHO KZ:SF is a rock solid 9. I'm not even a Killzone fan. Just an honest gamer. This blogosphere is rancid. So desperate to matter they sell out credibility for attention.

The only people that use scores to validate or tear down a game are those that don't game for which it was intended, entertainment. And Killzone is VERY entertaining. Jumping back on Shadow Fall right this minute.

@Gamingcapacity
FYI, COD and KZ were reviewed by the same person.

I personally skipped KZ though in favor of COD because I wanted a shooter with split screen, so people could play instead of watch me play when they are over :)

Gamingcapacity1040d ago

You always have to review objectively. Maybe KZ:SF got reviewed down because it's exclusive but it could also be that it looks for different things in games. This is why it's probably better not to attach a number and read the reviewers experience. You can then judge for yourself if the things he likes/dislikes mirrors your own expectations.

Looks like the Killzone hate continues personally I'm loving KZ4

xPhearR3dx1040d ago

I'm enjoying it, but can't really say I love it. I do love the changes they made. It makes the game play 1000x better and the multiplayer is much more enjoyable than 2 and 3. I've spent most of my time with Assassins Creed IV and Resogun, those and Battlefield when it friggin' works.

edit :D

MrDead1040d ago

Just ignore it, the reviewers are the ones having issues with the new gen where us gamers are having fun, they have just become so disconnected from gamers and some are completely oblivious to what we enjoy.

Sarcasm1040d ago

Yeah BF4's and COD's campaigns were TERRIBLE.

KZ SF is one of the best single player FPS games I've played in a long while. It has a deeper story that people have been asking for a long time since KZ2. And the gameplay is a bit more open and you can tackle it however you want.

Terrible review.

Really 5.5 out of 10?Did they even play it?A 7 or 8 is more realistic its not predict but its not that bad

tjg591040d ago

Sorry perfect not predict

ufo8mycat1040d ago

Firstly I say this site is very inaccurate in it's reviews.

You kind of lose credibility automatically when you give a game thats even worse a higher score (COD).

Secondly - Crysis 3 and KZ ShadowFall prove that gameplay > graphics.

Let's all be honest, Killzone is graphically an amazing game but gameplay wise....

Before I get a TON of disagrees, let me ask those Sony fans something and really answer honestly to yourselves.

If this game was not an exclusive, would you guys be going "This game is generic as hell" "The game is boring".

I honestly think a lot of you would.

MrDead1040d ago

The one thing that Killzone does is it gives you a change from the generic shooters, the feel the game gives you is like no other your character has weight with movement, the AI is brutal and the atmosphere is heavy and encompassing. The writing may not be the best but it keeps you entertained enough to always want more.

This review like most for Killzone leaves out half the game, multiplayer. This would never happen with COD or Battlefield and if they did it makes you wonder what they would get if they where to rely only on their single player campaigns for review scores.

Kos-Mos1030d ago

You`re totally right of course, but only the few intellectual understands that.
