"After a promising outing on the PlayStation 3, the Killzone franchise has taken a step back. The campaign is among the worst you’ll play in any triple-A shooter this year. Gameplay manages to hold on, just barely, despite difficulty and AI problems trying to bring it down. Multiplayer holds its ground, and is likely the only redeeming feature of the whole package. It’s a phenomenal looking game, but sound effects sabotage the presentation. After so many entries that successfully avoided the tropes of being a tech demo, Killzone: Shadow Fall ends up feeling exactly like one."
