Killzone Shadow Fall Is The Best Selling Next Generation Launch Exclusive

Killzone Shadow Fall has not only managed to impress others with its dazzling next generation graphics, it has also ended up to be the best selling launch exclusive among the two next generation consoles. It outsold Xbox One launch exclusives Ryse, Forza Motorsport 5 and Dead Rising 3 in both of its major markets, EU and NA. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

Definately, high quality game without annoying microtransactions but rather free maps and serverside-patches.

KZ:SF could be better but it is the best new generation exclusive for lack of competition, unless we count SM3DW.

Thank God people ignored the selective-criticism garbage of a review base and just bought the game because they wanted to support the series or were newcomers who wanted to see just what's up with Killzone. GG is continually making the game better, and you can have them to partially thank for the DS4's comfortable design.

This game is quality to the highest degree. You have people complaining as it's not as easy as cod or battlefield.

Story wise it is solid as well. Some gamers just don't know a good story when it is put in front of them.

Dad get's killed in battle. Son goes on a complete mission to avenge his father. I am sold right there.

Lol what? Killzone Shadow Fall is a hard game to play?? Also, compared to Battlefield? Oh come on!

i participated to this success, but i am mega disappointed by this game.
the MP is just shit unenjoyable experience. I am a BIG Killzone player from the previous ones (even Liberation) and i can tell that Shadow Fall should have been called Hollow Fall...
Completely soul less, much less content than the previous episodes.
Clear downgrade and i'm waiting for patches and DLCs to bring back the fun i have been used to and also bring the soul of Killzone back.

Stop talking about SP, it's not MGS story and it will never been (in any shooter)... it's all about the MP in these types of games so talk MP instead.

Either your joking but I don't think you know what a good story/storytelling is because Killzone SF did it poorly. The premise is basic with the execution a mess (for one it ignores the context/world it lives in)
TheDrunkenJester  +   599d ago
I don't want to be a dick, but I think if there where more launch exclusives from Sony it wouldn't have sold as much. From the choices of knack or kz I think most people picked up kz especially after the knack reviews. I think if drive club also was released, it wouldn't have seen as many sales, or infamous, or gow etc. But kz is a solid game, I'm not trying to put down its achievement, but kz games never sold all that well, but since there was a drought in ps4 exclusives it did great.

Theres something about the helghast I find really intresting. Would love a game from there perspective.

Personally I think killzone would make for great blockbuster movie its all there !!.

On topic kz:shadow fall is awesome definantly got underrated by reviewers iv said it before but if it was called halo boom automatic 9s atleast !! But no its called killzone Hence the multitude of 7s that rolled in.

^^^ The answer is, both consoles launch games were pretty average. None of them had a 'good' game. Even BF was broken. I'm not surprised to see people defending KZ. Fanboys do not judge a game based on it's quality.

The problem with your comment Scott, is that your are trying to excuse Ps4's poor quality launch titles just because X1 also has poor quality ones. Which is just a **** argument.

@Irishguy95

Not really, he said it was the only game available to PS4 owners worth buying, and that is why it is the top selling exclusive...
So I was wondering what games are better on the X1 and why aren't they selling better? It seems to me none. I wasn't excusing the fact that the launch lineups are average.
Irishguy95  +   598d ago
Killzone has the appeal of graphics and that it is a known franchise. And knack is an abomination, people didn't buy a Ps4 to play last gen games on new hardware, they bought it for next gen games -> Killzone.

The X1 games are all equally average thus there is no disparity between the games people buy.

Ps4 has one game that stands out(and happens to be poor anyway). And X1 has a few games and none of them stand out(yet again all are poor). You will have people picking between the Racer(Forza), the action game(Ryse) and the zombie game(dead rising).

Ps4 has Knack and KZ. The choice is obvious between those two. The rest are indie games and free with Ps+.

Then there are the multiplats which again fall in line with my first two points(There are more of them, and they are all last gen games with updated graphics, no one is buying a new console for those games.)

If the X1 had nothing but Ryse, and then some other crap game like knack, Ryse would easily match KZ in sales. Ryse also has the appeal of graphics.

Also no one expected Killzone to be this bad. Kz had a ****load of preorders before launch. It looked like it might end up decent unless you had a brain and could see through the pretty graphics(GG added bullet time and see through walls to the gameplay, they also made it faster and even closer to COD. They also thought climbing up a wall was something special. It just shows how ****ing brainless the game designers at GG are. They have not one inkling of innovation in them, pulling features that have been abandoned long ago back out and acting like it's something new, its nearly as bad as COD and it's fish Ai)

Having a greater variety of crap games doesn't excuse the fact they are all crap... Killzone appeals to people for one reason or another, hence the huge per orders and sales. No I am not saying anything about it's quality, but you saying the reason there isn't one great selling game on the x1 is because of better variety is not true! If one of those games appealed to the masses it would be bought up like crazy, just like Killzone SF... There is nothing on the X1 that has any appeal to the mass market, or is any good. The total pre orders and sales of X1 games were always horrid, with Killzone matching all of them COMBINED!

I do agree though that Killzone is insanely generic and lacking innovation, I wish GG would just move on to something else.

kz shadow fall multiplayer is not fun, GG have taken away the fun of kz3 multiplayer and why such a small group of classes?

GG need some new blood working for them with fresh ideas as this for me is the worse killzone multiplayer wise, kz2 was the best in the series
joab777  +   598d ago
I love it. I love the direction they took the multiplayer, taking focus off of k/d and leveling and putting it on gameplay and teamwork. The spwas nice too, I liked how they opened it up and gave us more option. And its gorgeous. Small complaints are once again...the writing. For a civil war, genocide themed story, it couod have been really powerful. Also, while a little harder than 3, the difficulty is still quite scaled back from 2. Maybe an elite difficulty would have been nice.

I am pretty sure they will patch many things in, especially some mutil aspects that made 2 so amazing. One will b leveling I am sure. I have no problem with it...just keep the focus on team play and strategy...or have leveling based on classes or perks based on teamplay.

Last issue is trophy related. I don't go after every platinum but I love Killzone and the helghast etc. And I have the other two. I think they went the wrong direction with the trophies. They should promote variety but without forcing ppl to play in a way they may not want for so long. I have no issue with the time dedication, just make it simple...play for so long, play as each class for so many games etc. But allow each player to choose how they play. I know its optional but its hard to ignore. Overall though, I love it. Great job Guerilla!!!

Whatever floats your boat man. As thereapersson pointed out, you're entitled to your opinion. But I can guarantee you that there are no other next gen shooters on the market presently offering a better experience than KZ Shadow Fall (on consoles) and that's with all of it's shortcomings included.

I'm currently playing 24 player warzone, and I can say that I have never, NEVER, played a more rewarding and exhilarating shooter on consoles. BF4 and COD Ghost are riddled with issues, and in my opinion Shadow Fall beats them all.

The way all the classes come together is something quite unique. I find myself switching between all of them within a match depending on objectives and such. The levels are so well designed, but on top of that, we will get new maps free of charge while BF and COD will rape your wallets for more contents.

Hopefully GG's new IP is something special and a return to form.

Yeah, the way Shadow Fall works well out of the box is more than we can say for Battlefield 4 or CoD: Ghosts, given the history of recent patches (and apparently BF4 is still crashing). Ghosts had to have 1080p functionality patched in post-release, which is downright ridiculous.

Meanwhile, Shadow Fall does 1080p native with a framerate that still maintains 45FPS and above, usually hovering right around 60. This is a launch game, so it gives me hope for the future of this console generation.

"But I can guarantee you that there are no other next gen shooters on the market presently offering a better experience than KZ Shadow Fall, and that's with all of it's shortcomings included."

Actually, I would easily recommend Battlefield 4 (even with its problems) over Killzone any day.

Take the campaign. Killzone: SF was absolutely derivative nonsense. The plot was terrible, the characters were weak, the on rails section were especially weak (shoot the linkages on a train with a minigun)apart from the one where you're holding on to a rope on a ship flying around (shown at E3). The enemy A.I was terrible and I can't think of any memorable moments apart from the one above. And wtf was up with the last encounter? One of the most terrible endings to a game. I played it on hard and thought to myself, this has to be the CHEAPEST way to end a game. Halo 2 boss battle...all is forgiven... Seriously, how on Earth anyone thought that would be a good way to end the game is beyond me. *Semi spoiler alert* Let's throw as many enemies at you as we can, all magically spawning at the dropship pad in front of you.

Seriously, it was a poor game even by early last gen standards. The only thing going for it are the great visuals.

BF4 on the other hand, whilst it had a derivative campaign as well, actually had some memorable characters with some great voice acting (like the black guy from the Wire) and the developers tried really hard to make the characters grow on you. The destruction was brilliant, it offered a less linear experience, although it could have taken this further. *Semi-Spoiler alert* The choice presented to the player at the end was actually tough. The bronze to gold assignment element was fun.

The MP- I mean come on...its so basic. The classes aren't fun, the maps are hardly memorable. I played it a lot thinking I'm missing something but no. Seriously, there are only 3 classes compared to the multitude available in the previous games. Tell me, how is this not a poor man's COD with a different skin? It just has no identity of its own.

"The levels are so well designed, but on top of that, we will get new maps free of charge while BF and COD will rape your wallets for more contents."

What? How? Which map is well designed? The Park which is a cluster f*** where you can just go in as an engineer, park a turrent and shoot into the spawn?

The Remains? Basically a long corridor for snipers?

Here's me playing btw (shameless promotion):

https://fbcdn-video-a.akama...

The Station? Not even gonna go there..

Ignoring BF4's problems for argument's sake (I have spent hours on it btw and am aware of the problems), it completely demolishes Killzone in every aspect:

Weapons- loads of weapons with attachments
Maps- Huge maps with destructive environments, dynamic events etc
Vehicles- enough said here
64 players

Killzone cannot compete at all with Battlefield. Killzone: SF was rushed to launch, that much is obvious especially when you look at the lack of basic features like voice chat or the features GG will be adding via patches.

I honestly don't understand the appeal. It was a derivative bore-fest. Hand on my heart I tried to like it. I mean, I queued up at midnight launch and bought that game hoping Killzone would finally win me over. I was talking to the developers at GG at the launch and you could tell they were a bit reserved about the game too.

Let me refresh your memory for a little bit. There are any games out that are more buggy than BF4 on next gen consoles. NONE!!! So you want to talk about "rushed", nothing is as rushed and unfinished as BF4.

You are wrong on that point, period. Sure we can discuss which game we prefer as it is a matter of opinion. But the fact is, Battlefield 4 is unplayable and a simple goodle search will prove that.

Wow someone is on their period. Give it a rest troll, yet again in more killzone news you are spreading hate, looking atyour comment history it was killzone 3 before you was hating on, infact anything PlayStation is bad and anything xbox is good according to you.

can you not grow up and learn to deal with others opinions, if they like killzone then leave them alone.

Why would killzone want to compete with battlefield lol for astart battlefield 4 is a near broken with freezesand corrupt saves so that shows right there you don't have a clue. Second battlefield is open world current day, killzone is sc-fi arcade shooter.

Lets be honest looking at what you said about multiplayer you got owned badly and thus don't like it, maybe you needto go back to aim assist COD. And calling it a poor version of COD lol keep trolling kid.

Oh cut the crap, you was at the midnight launch for your website not because you like PlayStation.

Riiight....so I assume you haven't even got Battlefield 4 then? Why would I Google search it when I have played several hours of it? Is it unplayable? Of course not. It crashes here and there (a lot more stable since Wednesday's update but yeah, still not excusable). However it wipes the floor with Killzone- I'd rather play a decent game with occasional problems than an average (and average is being generous imo) shooter.

I don't need to justify myself to someone like you but just for fun, let me tell you, I've been single handedly arguing with a whole horde of my mates telling them to get the PS4. So I say it here, I say it on TV, I say it on my hands-on impressions, what more do you want?

Want to know the difference between me and you? I'm not a slave to a brand. If something is cack, I will say so. Ryse was cack and I said it a few months ago. Killzone: SF is mediocre and I say it here.

Sorry I dont have KZ SF

But BF4 is no gem to praise either...i have yet to beat the game because when i finally feel like playing the SP ,my save data has disappeared.

Not to mention the spawn system in Team Deathmatch any many modes with smaller maps is a joke....they constantly spawn enemies behind you.

Not to mention the map design, Did they design the maps with campers and snipers in mind only? There are maps where players can lock themselves on the roof and just snipe everyone below....the hatch to get on the roof can only be opened from the top.

BF4 shines when it comes to game modes involving vehicular combat but most every thing else falls flat when compared to previous BF games.

If KZ is a poor mans COD what is BF? a rich mans COD? cause BF4 reminds me of Call of Duty more than any other version before it.

Dont get me started on the lack of party/squad system prior to joining games.

Again i have 0 experience with Shadow Fall, BF4 is far from being unplayable, But it certainly leaves something to be desired

I have read all of your post on Killzone and obviously you don't like it and that's fine or whatever.

But to say it was rushed? Really? How so? I am confused by this as its probably the most stable launch game I've played yet.

You said the enemy A.I is dumb. Then you haven't played on the hardest setting, this game is unrelenting. There is no forgiving aim assist online like in COD and BF4 and maybe that's why you don't like it.

I see it all the time, people can't get good at the game so they disregard it as bad, they hate on it and praise a broken game (like BF4) to be something far better than it. Honestly I wouldn't compare the two personally as they both feel completely different in sense of handling and gun weight.

Must suck that you cant take an LMG and run around the map as fast as someone with an AR.

Almost all your "opinions" on this game are pretty bad, as you say things that make no sense about the game.

A.I isn't trash and I think many reviewers claim this by simply saying "this game is un-necessarily hard" (angry joe and a few others)

Online is fun, if you're actually good at the game and have a decent team to do objectives with. (oh and it doesnt crash every couple matches like BF4 does)

The game is in fact not rushed considering how stable its been running since its been out. If it were rushed wouldn't we see more crashing etc?

The story, well that's your opinion, I am sure you aren't the type of person who enjoyed any Killzone games at all really. So why would you even attempt this one?

Nobody is saying the single player is amazing, it's average but the multiplayer is great and fun. The game has the best graphics and the game works and does what it says on the tin which compared to the rest of the launch games which are broken or poor has got to make killzone shadow fall the best launch game by default.

The total crap you put about the reduced classes. The classes abilities are still there but condensed into 3 classes, you are not losing anything, infact they have added abilities like mobile spawn points. Just all shows you hardly touched the game.

Why its rushed:

* Less classes
* No voice chat
* Only 3 classes
* 10 uninspired maps

Also, speak to Abzdine who is a Killzone Vet and ask him why he thinks the game is rushed.

"You said the enemy A.I is dumb. Then you haven't played on the hardest setting, this game is unrelenting. "

I have completed the game on its hardest setting. Because the game was unrelenting doesn't mean the A.I is good. The A.I is terrible and its only unrelenting because the game has a tendency to throw hordes of constantly spawning enemies at you. And it doesn't just happen at the final encounter. What about the mission where you're protecting the Helghan chick working the console whilst enemies constantly spawn in the same pattern over and over and over until you send out the OWL to disable the console. This is not fun.

I've played every single Killzone as well since the first one. Why would he be considered a vet over anyone else who has played it.

EVERYTHING you are saying and he is saying, just like I am saying.

It is all opinion based. The game was not easy by any merit, I played BF4 more than Killzone or COD, and yes the Single player in Killzone is far and above Battlefield (which is nothing but the same mission over and over again)

I had over 123 people watching my livestream of killzone and everyone loved the entire playthrough. I'll take my personal experience and give people my opinion just like you are doing now.

If anyone is having issues with aiming you could adjust both VERTICAL and HORIZONTAL sensitivities

Mine are set to 20% Vertical and 70% horizontal.

This will give you a far better experience then doing 50/50.

Back on topic though. Uninspired maps? What did you want exactly? You are also getting all the DLC besides co-op for free.

3 classes? Really what more do you need. I dont know many people who don't use mor than one gun in any type of MP game. especially BF4 and COD

BF3 was all about the M16

Black Ops II was all about the MSMC

BF4 seems to be the ACE 23

So don't sit here and try to defend the fact that there aren't as many classes or guns as that seems pretty irrelevant.

Killzone has its loyal fanbase, They aren't COD and they aren't Battlefield status, and I am okay with that.

Just don't sit here and give me the "vet" speech

Go ahead here is my PSN id xgravexmakerx check for yourself how much i've put into each Killzone game.

I beat each of them multiple times and played it online religiously on PS3.

Guess because my "vet" opinion is different then Abzdine it makes it irrelevant in your argument right?

"Guess because my "vet" opinion is different then Abzdine it makes it irrelevant in your argument right?"

Not at all mate. It is very relevant and I appreciate the time you took to give a detailed opinion unlike the Springheeled chap who doesn't know whether he's coming or going.

"Back on topic though. Uninspired maps? What did you want exactly? You are also getting all the DLC besides co-op for free.
"
Proper maps. I don't understand how any of these maps are fun to play. Take Forest as another example. It's so small, the map should be called 'garden' instead.

Oh and to combine this with my point about classes, if you pick the sniper class and pick the teleport ability, just use that on Forest. The map is so small that many a time you get teleported right outside the enemy spawn.

So apart from spawn camping in Forest, there is only one real area of engagement- the middle where players get funnelled down an area with a couple of towers (that no one hardly goes to cause you tend to get fragged anyway).

I have no issues with the aiming or mechanics of the game.

Oh and there is hardly any team work (although this is a criticism that can be levied against players and not the game).

If people are enjoying the game then fair play, but I for one do not think this game deserves any where near the sales it has got. I just think its a average at best game, launch or not.

If you want, I'll add you to PSN if you want to discuss the matter.

"BF4 seems to be the ACE 23 "

Er I haven't found that at all. How is it all about that gun? Play conquest and the gun you use is irrelevant, its all about the strategy and how you employ the vehicles. I have been killed by a multitude of different weapons and I have used a lot too. The game really does encourage you using different classes.

@SpringHeeledJack:

"The total crap you put about the reduced classes. The classes abilities are still there but condensed into 3 classes, you are not losing anything, infact they have added abilities like mobile spawn points. Just all shows you hardly touched the game."

SAY WHAT???? Added abilities like spawn points added??? WOW!! i didn't see that.
But let's compare abilities and classes:

Killzone2:
Rifleman: The Rookie!
Engineer: Turret and Repair
Medic: Revive and Health pack
Scout: Cloak and Spot n Mark
Assault: Extra Armor and running fast
Tactician: Spawn grenade and air support
Saboteur: Disguise and C4 grenade.

Killzone 2 had clans, squads, more missions.

Killzone 3:
Medic class: revive and medi drone
Infiltrator: disguise and survivalist (running fast)
Tactician: Can capture spawn areas, spots and marks ennemies and uses air support
Engineer: Repairs everything and turret
Marksman: Cloak suit and scramble

in Killzone 3 everyone can use C4, in KZ2 you can use every other ability when you reach general skill rank.
Let's not talk about badges from KZ2 and KZ3 like faster reload, silent footsteps, precision aim, extra ammo, extra armor...

Where is infiltrator disguise ability in Shadow Fall? Why can't the turrets spin 360° 30 years later?
why do you only have ONE damn bomb?
Explain to me why there are 6 maps?
Where is Operations Mode?
Where is Co-op?
Where is voice chat?
Where are the squads?
Squad leader spawn?
where are the unlock system?
why is the stupid beacon sound like the oldest nokia phone? Where is the propaganda speaker we are used to?
Why isn't there assassination mission?
why isn't it possible to kill downed enemies?
Why cant i zoom with R3 like all previous Killzones?
Where are interrogations?
Why did they remove MOVE after all the praise they got and positive returns?
3D support?

i can go on and on... it will take me hours.
SpringHeeledJack  +   599d ago
So according to you it's rushed because:

* Less classes
* No voice chat
* Only 3 classes
* 10 uninspired maps

You said the same thing twice (less classes/ only 3 classes)

Maps are just your opinion and the maps are great. Voice chat you have but party chat is there which you leave out.

The classes is where you are talking crap and lie. Less classes does mean the game was rushed, if you did any research you would know they lowered the classes on purpose not because they didn't have enough time. All the abilities are still there and even more added but fitted into 3classes instead of 5, so fat from rushed.

You say killzone is poor mans COD- total crap and lie.

"I just want to show everyone how easy it is to shoot down a keyboard warrior like yourself. You would get absolutely schooled because unlike you, I know what I'm talking about."

Yeh coming from someone who didn't even know you can set up your own games in killzone or who thinks killzone is a poor mans COD, i doubt you have any real clue what you are talking about.

The only keyboard warrior here is you, the moment this story was approved you started spamming your hate comments and having a go at people. You think you can go round spreading hate but people will call you out so get used to the replies especially from me.

@spring

Lol...oh dear okay..

"Maps are just your opinion and the maps are great."

So then, is that your opinion or a fact?

"Voice chat you have but party chat is there which you leave out. "

Party chat is a system feature. But hold on a minute, if you're in party chat, the game doesn't even highlight your friend on the map in the game. Oh but wait, GG are going to update it and add this basic feature later on. Not rushed right?

How am I spreading hate? I'm giving you my opinion on why I don't think this game doesn't deserve its sales or praise that you lot bestow upon it.

And look at your comment history lol. How dare you accuse me of being a fanboy when almost every single comment of yours is fanboyish nonsense.

"I'm schooling you and i'm enjoying kid :)"

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-o...

Lol ahaha okay if you say so. I'd shudder to think what your grades are like in school (primary?) if this is what you consider a good performance.

But look at Abzdine's post. He has an agenda too right? He doesn't get it either?

Anyway, I have mentioned in detail about the game's shortcomings. To summarise:

1) Weapons: Unimaginative and lacking. Your usual bevy of assault rifles, one hit kill sniper rifles, massive gattling gun are nothing worth shouting about

2) Maps- they just don't cut it. Encounters end up being the same over and over. Park, you spawn camp, Forest, you spawn camp, Ruin, a glorified corridor (but probably one of the better maps).

3) Classes- 3 classes just aren't enough. They don't add enough variety in a game like this.

But you know what, I don't want to ruin anyone's enjoyment of the game. Clearly some of you are enjoying it and fair enough. I apologise if I seem over-bearing in my assessment of the game. I understand how annoying it can be when someone is critical of a game you enjoy and incessantly plays it down (look at the_infected's sad attempt to downplay Forza 5). But I just think that the double standards of people on here need to brought to attention.

So yes, this is my opinion. If only some uneducated trolls could comprehend that.

SpringHeeledJack  +   599d ago
What is it you do not get with the class system, just because they have reduced the amount of classes doesn't mean they have taken away abilities, they are all there like medic but put into support class.

The classes have more guns and attachments to choose from, c4,land tripmines,granades,emp granades. More abilities compared to other killzones and new ones like teleport, shield, zipwire, stun, mobile ammo crate etc plus all upgradable so how can you say it's a unfinished game is beyond me. Then there is spotlight moves and challenges.

But you ignore all that and just cry how COD is better than it lol which gave you away as just being a hater.

If you are being spawn camped then use mobile spawn points even tho they are multi outlets and the spawn points have their own turrets i fail to see how every single game you are being spawn camped, i haven't come across once but no doubt it does happen just not to the extent you make out.

Like i said i give you voice chat, not that i wanna here People's music or talking with their mates during a game so i prefer party chat in games.

You are really arguing with yourself, nobody is saying this is the best game ever or even the best kz. You are just hurt and angry at a perceived wrong that killzone is getting good sales, why? The game works and looks great which is alot compared to the rest of the launch games. No true gamer who is impartial would hate on a game for selling well. Im glad your kind is a minority.

I feel for you right now man... the fanboy is strong with this one.

Pertaining to Killzone though. I have to agree it doesn't really deserve all the praise it has, and you can refer to the points made throughout this argument. Anybody who isnt a blind fanboy can see the faults of this game, and review scores showed it too. The story is really lacking and the multiplayer is mediocre at best.

KZ:SF trys to run with the big boys, but ultimately fails to do so. For those of us with a PS4... at least we can all wait for uncharted!
Revolver_X_  +   599d ago
@Septic

You try way too hard to convince ppl BF4 is the greatest shooter ever. I think its not that KZSF is garbage, just that you nuthug BF4 to no end. Even as far as saying BF4 SP is "memorable." Click any given review to see tha no one agrees with you. Then you wanna drag down KZ SP to fit your argument. Is KZ SP comparable to TLOU? No, but amongst the shooters out now, it is. KZ has always had a pretty good story. Hell, I buy KZ for the SP.

@Abz
For someone who is a so-called KZ fan, who awkwardly comes to defend Septics point when called upon, you quickly forget GG releases free DLC. GG has already stated GG will release maps, modes, weapons based on community feedback, for FREE. So, if you never see game modes you like, then I guess the community doesnt agree with you. Besides, creating your own game type is very fun. Yiu two sadly, seem to only want to hate the game. Its fine, but take a step back for a second. Septic, do you think your try-hard seems genuine to anyone? Your embarrassing yourself, who are you realky trying to convince?
abzdine  +   599d ago
@Revolver_X_ :
i am defending no one.. i am telling that the game, as good as it can be, has lost lot of value from the previous episodes. I am trying to convince no one, just give arguments to what i'm saying which is something you aren't doing..

And you talk about DLC... why should i care about DLCs? i buy the game i want it to be at least as good as what i know already.
There are no maps for snipers, the maps themselves are TOO small.
Does Pyrrhus Rise tell you anything?? Why are they suddenly saying that the marksmen maps are coming? did they forget to put them in the disc? or Bluray isn't big enough for it?? Don't you think that's the reason why the DLC is FREE??

Sorry but compare Multiplayer of KZ3 and Shadow Fall, the last one is put to shame.
I LOVED so much playing through Operations Mode with my friends, that mode was so good. Where is it???
I also HATE the search and destroy mission in the new one, why is it 1 target at the time?? Makes it both TOO EASY or TOO HARD cause as a defender you should only protect one of them and you win.

i am ready to forgive them because i really like this series if the DLC brings back the fun.
happy they did well, i just hope they realize they have a solid fan base that they should keep happy.

"You have negative things to say about a PS exclusive? Let me go hire someone to act shocked for me, since I couldn't even begin to fake it in this situation. "

How ironic that YOU of all people come out here and try to imply that I'm a fanboy when YOU are one of the biggest examples of someone that religiously goes around with his downright annoying and sarcastic nature on XBox related articles, with your keyboard warrior antics that are just irksome.

You make it out like I always go around speaking negatively of the PS4. You absolutely hypocrite. Your posts are the most useless and unprodoctive ones here. DO you even game?

"Either you have no idea how different KZ and BF are, or you're trying waaaay too hard."

Have you even played both games? DO you even game at all?

@Spring

Can you answer any of my points properly? "Like i said i give you voice chat, " Yeah and like I said, when you use party chat, you can't even coordinate with your team on the map yet. That's a basic feature you expect in FPS', even the much ridiculed COD game that you love to berate so much. You clearly don't understand what quality is.

@Revolver

Seriously wtf are you chatting about. Think before you type nonsense:

"You try way too hard to convince ppl BF4 is the greatest shooter ever"

How did I do that? Can you not read? Look at Cupid's post and my reply at 1.2.5. Its obvious I'm talking comparatively.

" Even as far as saying BF4 SP is "memorable."

Learn to read. Let me spoon feed you:

"BF4 on the other hand, whilst it had a derivative campaign as well, actually had some MEMORABLE CHARACTERS".

Do you understand now?

"Yiu two sadly, seem to only want to hate the game. Its fine, but take a step back for a second. "

Yeah even though we could barely sleep when the game was relesed...waited in the cold till 2am at midnight launch, and played the game, tried to give it a chance but found it lived way too short of our expectations.

"Your embarrassing yourself, who are you realky trying to convince?"

How am I embarrassing myself? My taking the time to tell you why the game is short lived? Your ridiculous isn't embarassing.

Let me just say that you lot on here are ridiculous. Apparently, almost all the reviewers of the game were completely wrong, its a giant conspiracy and you lot know best right? Killzone:SF deserves those sales and GG can rest assured that if they released a glorified tech demo, strip content and then rely on subsequent patches (Or DLC) they can continue to enjoy that success. But on the flipside, lets berate Forza for being an incomplete game that happens to be the most complete launch racer ever made. Right.

Stay classy N4G.

Despite being an FPS, with on "ok" story it still sold more than any other exclusive. Nice.

Considering it's the only big exclusive out for PS4 and is eye candy for next-gen, it makes sense it sold a lot. I'm not even really a big Killzone fan and I bought it simple to see what the PS4 is capable of at launch. I also know a few people who did the same exact thing. Sure it's gorgeous, but it's an extremely mediocre forgettable game. After I beat the campaign, I played some MP here and there, and since then it's been collecting dust.
JackISbacK  +   599d ago
the reason people are not having any other choice than to play this excluive ,therre are not much big hard core multiplats on either consoles and they left no choice then to buy this game ,i'am fed up of this game and the only ok but best part is only its multiplayer and i have that part also,but games like dead rising 3,forza and killer instinct are the most fun games out of any excluive and ryse shit pains more than this shittty KZSF both were realy hyped but at the end comes out to be most shittiest hyped titles.

Rayansaki  +   598d ago
It's not really an easy comparison. Battlefield has larger maps and vehicle combat, which makes it very different. If you like smaller maps and constant action, KZ3 is definitely better, BF4 has more wandering around getting to the action, but also feels more like an actual well... battle field.

As for the singleplayer, KZ3 is better, no contest there.
There's also the fact that BF4 is absolutely broken with bugs right now. But once it's fixed, I'd say they're both on the same level, coming down to a matter of preference.
ssj27  +   599d ago
Lol it's funny to see people hating Killzone at this point.
Im a fan of Killzone and even I was lost and it does feel dull at some parts and most of the time the acting sucks after playing TLOU, but if you actually finish the game and go for a second run you will enjoy it way more since you will understand it better and play it different since the levels give you the option to play it in different ways. It's indeed the best fps right know out there and the best next gen game.

Let's be fair here and see the other's next gen games, killzone is the best but gets the most hate, not fair.

And the multiplayer is amazing once you start understanding it but in the start I was like WTF is this, but the more I play it the more I like it!

It's better than killzone 3 yes way better!!! It's not better than Killzone 2.. killzone 2 was a master piece! !! But they are on the right track.
Easy to believe.

If you work you can afford both ps4 and xbox one, maybe not right at launch but there are enough reason to own both by years 3-4

Rather unfortunate that Killzone SF was rather subpar for me. Being a non Playstation gamer before the PS4 I had high hopes for the game which were mostly met, but the singleplayer felt rushed and lacking a lot of story elements such as cutscenes and such. The game jumps you into missions far too often without any really cool cutscenes just the same old talking over the mission and jump straight in...

IMO, this game did not deserve the bad reviews. I personally liked the game, despite having some setbacks like repetitive/long shooting scenes. I especially love the soundtrack in the game. 9/10 in my book as a great PS4 launch title.

Killzone was definitely underrated in the reviews. Someone said FPS's are all about MP and I couldn't disagree more. Some are, but not Killzone. Killzone has a fantastic 12 hour campaign as well as a fantastic multiplayer mode (can't wait for the "horde" add-on).

It's weird to me that it's the best Killzone in the series, yet it got rated the lowest. I expect next-gen games to surpass this graphically but it was still a gorgeous game -- better looking than any game I've played.

I also want to defend Knack. I'm going for a platinum and I'm enjoying it. It's not a fantastic game, but it's far from bad. It's an 8 or a very high 7.

Need for Speed was also a great launch title but technically it fell short. It doesn't look bad but it should have been 60fps. The speeds you are going at, you need that super smooth framerate.

Resogun was also a great launch title (which for some reason got the highest scores -- it's great but it's not _that_ original).

My biggest gripe now is the wait until March to get a new proper next-gen game. Except maybe Driveclub, don't know the release date of that one yet. Infamous SS is going to be awesome, hopefully, and Titanfall looks like fun, and of course Ground Zeroes but unless there's more to the game than what they've shown, it feels like they are selling us a demo.
staticdash22  +   599d ago
I think Shadow Fall quite nicely brought the killzone series to full circle. Now, they have room to move on and branch out, or maybe the take killzone further if they'd like.

My guess is that they focus in their new IP, and its already looking bright knowing that they finally brought in a central writer, John Gonzalez who wrote Fallout New Vegas. It's always been weird that Guerrilla Games has never had a central writer dedicated to writing the story to killzone. Just look at the credits, no creative director for writing the story is listed, wow. Who's responsible for writing then? No wonder the game's story has been meh last gen. I expect that to change, along with giving themselves a fresh start with a new IP

I'm getting a little tired of Vekta and Helghan as the only two planets we get to explore in the KZ universe.

Has anyone read up on the KZ backstory and lore? I think GG should consider expanding the series to include Earth's planet colonies and even Earth itself in order to make the KZ universe larger. I would also hope we would get to see the more technologically advanced UCA fleet in later installments of KZ. I would love to play as a Helghast - kinda like Echo. GG should also add more "gray" characters like Kellan (except with more personality) to the games.

The disagrees you are getting just show the denial of fanboys. You are telling the truth, yet they can't accept it. I got told I didn't even own a ps4 when I posted basically the same comment.

I didn't buy it for online play. I'm very satisfied.

Man, ppl just love complaining nowadays eh?
CrustifiedDibbs  +   599d ago
so... im not allowed to be frustrated becuase sony fanboys hype a game and dont back up the hype by playing the game?

you might not have bought it for online play, but i did. if the community is barely active, i feel like i wasted yet another $60 on a kz game.

if you didnt buy it for the mp, then what is the point? campaign is barely worth a rental lol.

you keep calling people sony fanboys and than blame your disagrees to KZ:SF. You can make a point without calling people fanboys

all i see from your comments are always negative stuff towards sony/ps brand

There is only an avg. of 25,000 people online playing Ghost's, compared to 250,000 on past cod titles on the ps3.

Battlefield -becomes more souless with each release.

CoD- has been souless since cod4.

Killzone, still has soul, Old school vibe , So pretty and original.. not perfect, but refreshing.

I have all 3.
Gabenbrah  +   599d ago
Shame the multiplayer is already dead, I only ever see 1000 people online, at times less than 300 people. KZSF has a good MP IMO but the campaign was a major let down. Still one of the best launch games though.
GentlemenRUs  +   599d ago
IMO it blows CoD right out of the sky!

I enjoy it, That "Echo" is such a nice women :P

Never played KZ as I was a 360 gamer last gen,owned PS1+2 but not 3,pre ordered my PS4 day after E3 as Xbox has lost its way,got CODG and Fifa delivered day 1 went out and got BF4 and took what I thought was a risk at the time and got KZSF,great decision I love all my new games but KZSF is a 9/10 for me,MP is great graphics on my Samsung smart 42inch 1080p 600hz tv are the best I have ever seen,campaign is ok but I love the story,I need to know the history and past of the first three games I know shelf an was destroyed by the Vetkans and that's it anyone want to give me a brief update on the story I would be greatful,it's a great game and the mechanics are terrific you can have great gun battles that rely on skill because you don't die from one shot and no aim assist,teamwork and teammates are also key,love the game

The official Killzone site will give you the history of the KZ universe to date. It's pretty interesting.

My only complaints are the FOV and Post AA.
CyrusLemont  +   599d ago
FOV makes it so tough online. It's like looking through a tiny keyhole haha. Okay so that's a bit of an exaggeration, but if the fov was controllable, it would have prevented a few deaths of mine.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH wow

when this game sells well (or ryse) you know theres alot of special kids out there with 2 much money
MasterCornholio  +   599d ago
It still outsold Forza, Ryse and DR3.

Have a nice day.
king_george  +   599d ago
Or maybe people just like the game...?
SmielmaN  +   599d ago
It's a awesome game. Hate elsewhere troll!
ConwayGritty  +   599d ago
Considering it's the only ps4 exclusive that's worth playing right now I don't find this surprising
hazardman  +   599d ago
True that. KZSF and Resogun are the only games Sony has right now on PS4 that are any good.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   599d ago
In your opinion.

Not to mention the superior multiplats.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   599d ago
In your opinion.
hazardman  +   599d ago
Yeah its my opinion. But its one I came up with after hands on gaming with both consoles. Superior multiplats..lol I didnt buy a PS4 for multiplatform games. I bought it to play Sony games and PS+!!

Obviously. How do you think CoD has been doing so well?
kratos_TheGoat  +   599d ago
image halo 5 will have been a launch title h5 will had 1 million in 24hour alone in u.s
tigertron  +   599d ago
One of the best shooters I've ever played, though the campaign could have been better and I know GG are patching in voice chat and squads etc, so it's all good.

I'm just waiting for them to add co-op now.
nades_all_night  +   599d ago
Agreed. The game is absolutely stellar. Team chat is coming, and so are squads so no big deal there. Online Co-Op is part of the season pass. It will not be "added" for free. As far as SP co-op I highly doubt that will happen.

Maybe they were surprised by the Wii U launch and had to push out their consoles extra fast?
TristanPR77  +   599d ago
I bought the game for 48.99 on Amazon. I received it yesterday and when I played it WOW the graphics are stunning, was better than COD and BF4, the game play is awesome, the game is really good.

I can't understand why some reviews where low, it doesn't make sense, the game is very good and I recommend it.
SmielmaN  +   599d ago
Agreed. When I see 5's and 6's for this game it makes me think that the reviewer didn't play through the entire campaign.
Clover904  +   599d ago
I'm really enjoying the game, but I'm no fps aficionado like a buddy of mine. He complains that some of the weapons are underpowered, melee animations take too long, and that there aren't enough weapons.

I think the game is great. I personally like the fact that there is a risk to meleeing someone, and I'm really enjoying unlocking all the attachments. Game looks stunning, especially with it being a launch title.

Clover904  +   599d ago
Lol, keep at it. Make sure you're using your owl effectively. I really enjoyed the ending.
Belking  +   599d ago
Thats because there isnt a lot to choose from when it comes to exclusives on ps4. That lineup is seriously lacking in exclusive content.
SmielmaN  +   599d ago
Troll elsewhere.
SmielmaN  +   599d ago
It's a very cool game. Great graphics. Huge levels. The OWL is awesome. If you like shooters then you should play it.
Megaton  +   599d ago
Surprising, considering how much Microsoft has advertised Ryse. I've seen that flop's logo slapped on just about everything over the last couple months, with ads on just about every channel I watch.
XboxPS  +   599d ago

I hate Sinclair!
XboxPS  +   596d ago
Why?
Sinclair betrays Lucas!
But then Echo is killing him.
MrZweistein  +   599d ago
Killzone is the only Sony AAA exclusive besides Knack. So the choice is clear for PS4 owners that want to play some games. If you look at the Xbox One their is a little bit more choice at them moment with Forza, DR3, Ryse and KI. Also wonder how digital sales play in all this. For me I have only one game on disc, all others are digital purchases ( 5 games in possession ).

XboxFun  +   599d ago
Exactly.
Dewitt  +   599d ago
KZ only sold the most because PS4 owner only had that or Knack for a AAA exclusive. Where as MS had a large variety of exclusives people were interested in.
Clover904  +   599d ago
Great game. Already have all Assault class weapon attachments unlocked. On to the Scout class!
