Reviewing the Reviewers: Killzone: Mercenary

Killzone: Mercenary provided quite an interesting pre-review period. It’s fairly common for us to receive games close to release with a comically short time until a review embargo ends, but this time Sony went a little crazy and sent over the review code on the 14th August; that was a full three weeks before the embargo for the game was due. Combined with the allocation of preview code and a monster public multiplayer beta it was clear that this was a product that Sony were looking to push, push, push – regardless of some hardcore griping that it was being sent out to die.

Great Read... Love seeing stories on my all time favorite Vita game..

KZ Merc is a 10/10 in my opinion.. it's the best fps ever on a portable and the graphics are probably the best of any portable game out there. Come for the campaign and stay for the multiplayer.. It's the first game I've Platinumed and continued to play on a regular basis..

It simply is the best without question.

So far to me its a toss up between Killzone: Merc and Tearaway. Both are great games on the Vita.

It's the same as my N4G name! I was looking for my Vita last night and couldn't find it :( I hope it turns up soon, but until then you can find me playing KZ: Shadow Fall.

Killzone, Tearaway and Y's provided the vita with a great fall lineup

Decent article, though it comes off as holier than you. Especially when there are remarks like "An interesting aside to this is that I was the only reviewer to bother actually using all of those purchases."

Not really anything unexpected. Major websites have to release their reviews of major games as soon as possible in order to receive as much web traffic as possible, it's how they make a living; if the servers weren't available until the very last minute, this is going to happen. And, while the beta isn't the full game, it does give the reviewers plenty of information on the multiplayer of the game. As for the single player, you don't need to complete all the contracts in addition to the main campaign to know if the game looks good, has a good AI, sound, etc.

"...to know if the game looks good, has a good AI, sound, etc"

Most major review websites fail to give pertinent information even about those. Read: Skyrim.

It's almost as if those websites subsist on ad dollars from major publishers or something...
