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.

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

NewMonday959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

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

thereapersson959d ago

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.

Stsonic959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

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.

I ACTUALLY don't know whether you're being sarcastic here or not.

"You have people complaining as it's not as easy as cod or battlefield. "

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

abzdine958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

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.

hulk_bash1987958d ago

I enjoyed it alot and am very happy to hear it's a success. Hears hoping whatever GG is working on tops it. Greatness Awaits

iamnsuperman958d ago

@Stsonic

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)

TheDrunkenJester958d ago (Edited 958d 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.

JBallerX958d ago

@abzdine I agree 100%. I was disappointed by this game. I expected much more. The MP is not enjoyable for me. I'm glad that others like it, and happy it sold well. I was just not a fan at all. I think the reviews are justified.

mic_cala958d ago

@stsonic

Mate I might be one of the few like u but iv always enjoyed KZ story.

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.

mewhy32958d ago

Killzone is really something special. Truly next gen. 1080p unparrelled fidelity. A master piece.

strifeblade958d ago

what other game did you expect playstation owners to buy? they have only one choice and a bad kids game lol

scott182958d ago

@strifeblade

So what is x1's excuse? They got a lot of garbage and no clear AAA game.

Irishguy95958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

^^^ 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.

scott182958d ago

@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.

Irishguy95958d ago (Edited 958d 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)

scott182958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

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.

BALLBAGS958d ago

septic I agree

I was at the midnight launch

I loved kz2,kz3 sp not so much but online was and still is a blast

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

joab777958d ago (Edited 958d 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!!!

Septic959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

Gotta disagree there. It was a rushed game and decidedly average in my opinion. It was by no means the best exclusive.

thereapersson959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

That's cool that you think that; it's the place to have a difference of opinion, after all. While I don't completely agree with you, I can see your point. I really want to see what GG's next IP is. I hope early next year we get some information.

BTW, I didn't disagree with you.

Cupid_Viper_3959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

@Septic

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.

robtion959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

I agree. I'm a big fan of kz2 and 3 and this game is very weak by comparison. I really think it was rushed for launch. I have just quit on chapter 7 and will be getting rid of this game.

It would be fair to say i'm extremely disappointed with it :(

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

Note: I am talking about sp as I'm not that into mp. For all I know its great for mp.

thereapersson959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

@ Cupid_Viper_3

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.

Septic959d ago (Edited 959d ago )

@Cupid

"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.

@ Septic

NatureOfLogic said: "Well Deserved".

To which you replied: "Gotta disagree there. It was a rushed game and decidedly average in my opinion. It was by no means the best exclusive."

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.

SpringHeeledJack958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

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.

Look il be honest i prefer xbox but even i gottaadmit killzone shadowfall is easilythe best launch exclusive. See how that works :)

Septic958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

@Cupid

" But the fact is, Battlefield 4 is unplayable and a simple goodle search will prove that."

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.

@Springheeledjack

"Lets be honest looking at what you said about multiplayer you got owned badly and thus don't like it"

Ahahaha. Lol if you say so.

"Oh cutthe crap, you wasatthe midnight launch for your website not because you like PlayStation. "

Lol what? Unlike you, I'm a gamer first. I prefer the PlayStation hands down. 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.

How about add me on PSN and discuss this with me? I'll record it and share it here for all to listen to. Then we'll see who the fanboy here really is.

"maybe you needto go back to aim assist COD. And calling it a poor version of COD lol keep trolling kid."

Lol...wanna play Quake online against me? I haven't even played it in ages but come, lets see how each of us fares without aim assist.

Rainstorm81958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

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

Sarcasm958d ago

Say what you want about KZ, but do not say BF4 SP was better. That was one of the most generic campaigns I've ever played. It's down there with COD ghosts.

svoulis958d ago

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?

SpringHeeledJack958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

"wanna play Quake online against me? I haven't even played it in ages but come, lets see how each of us fares without aim assist."

"How about add me on PSN and discuss this with me? I'll record it and share it here for all to listen to. Then we'll see who the fanboy here really is."

*Rolls eyes* Oh god how old are you, next you will be telling me you want to meet me or your going to hack me lol.

Why do you wanna go on your websites ps4 and record what you say to me, you come across as butt hurt and creepy.

"Unlike you, I'm a gamer first. I prefer the PlayStation hands down. I don't need to justify myself to someone like you"

Haha thanks for the laugh but looking at your comment history you are the complete opposite. You are a fanboy and an abusive one at that. A true gamer is open mined which isn't you nor does a true gamer keeping posting hate.

"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.Killzone: SF is mediocre and I say it here."

Again looking at your comment history you are a slave to a brand that being xbox brand, no problem but stop pretending, so fake and obvious, you try act impartial since you are trying to promote the site you work on but the mask slips. I remember when you was a 1 bubble troll.

If you said killzone was medicore that would be fine, instead you spam hate and lies in every killzone story, get a grip why do you care so much if you don't like the game.

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.

Septic958d ago

@svoulis

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.

@spring

"Rolls eyes* Oh god how old are you, next you will be telling me you want to meet me or your going to hack me lol. "

Says the guy who said: ""maybe you needto go back to aim assist COD. And calling it a poor version of COD lol keep trolling kid."

" you try act impartial since you are trying to promote the site you work on but the mask slips. I remember when you was a 1 bubble troll. "

I was never on one bubble kid. Get your facts right.

"If you said killzone was medicore that would be fine, instead you spam hate and lies in every killzone story"

What lie? Tell me? Where is the lie? Seriously, dry your eyes mate and try (if it all possible) to stop being a fanboy for a second.

"Why do you wanna go on your websites ps4 and record what you say to me, you come across as butt hurt and creepy"

Lol butt hurt and creepy? 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.

"The total crap you put about the reduced classes. The classes abilities are still there but condensed into 3 classes...."

Abzdine....please tell this kid where he's wrong.

svoulis958d ago

@Septic

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?

Septic958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

@svoulis

"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.

abzdine958d ago

@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.

SpringHeeledJack958d 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.

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

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 :)"

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.

SilentNegotiator958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

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.

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

SpringHeeledJack958d 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.

Well done killzone shadowfall and GG on selling well i say

Ikonic958d ago

@Septic

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_958d 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?

abzdine958d ago (Edited 958d 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.

HaveAsandwich958d ago

i enjoyed knack more. no bs.

@Silent

"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.

I only play this game at night with my headphones on for full immersion and im really enjoying it, the story has some WTF moments and it isn't anything amazing, but i play this game for the same reason i watch a Marvel movie....for entertainment.

NewMonday959d ago

story is not just about plot, the actual writing and story scene directing are dragging the game down, hope GG improve this in the future, they do everything else great.

xPhearR3dx959d ago

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.

JackISbacK958d 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.
And lukas on story part also this game fall realy bad ,yeah it was having a interesting plot but was not well implemented and plot twists are like the gurrila is trirng to make fun of us.

snipes101959d ago

Yeah this was not a good game. I don't know how Killzone continues to sell so well. I was not a fan of this game. Sure, it was pretty, but that's about all it had going for it.

twdll959d ago

I think it has been very fun game so far. Single player and multi.

JackISbacK958d ago

not in the hell ,sorry to say every ps4 owner but this game does not deserve i in the hell,only its multiplayer is only worth playing,yeah it is an eye candy but i think every body ignored its gameplay ,but i'am stilll not very shocked because this was only big exclusive on ps4 with knack and thats the reason i by myself purchased this game,but the campaign is pain in the ass ,i'am witing for infamous ss and order to play next year,still not decided about driveclub.

smokeyjoekenobi958d ago

It's probably more to do with the anaemic launch lineup, not to say it isn't a decent game cause it isn't bad, but I think it's relative success is more to do with circumstance than anything else.

deecee33958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

Serious question- is KZ:SF better than BF4? If so that may speed up my timetable to get a PS4. I was going to wait until MGS Ground Zeroes is released.

HaveAsandwich958d ago

i dont think its better than bf4, no.

dragon82958d ago

BF4 is a broken mess at the moment.

Rayansaki958d 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.

ssj27958d 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.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney958d ago (Edited 958d ago )

Easy to believe.

New killzone confirmed for the future..

TheXgamerLive958d ago

Hahaha it says its a rough guess from a poster on GAF, seriously just wait till NPD are released. But whats most important is if you like the game. Enjoy it:)

Dmagic958d ago

this game is terrible so basic and unfun nothing new or defining save your money i was hype for this game but it sucks.

showtimefolks958d ago

its an excellent game just like forza 5 is and dead rising 3 is also very good but has its shortcomings

Ryse just sucks, gameplay is boring and very repetitive. I hope this generation more people keep an open mind and try games and not just hate on a game because its not on their console of choice. 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

please stop this blind fanboys actions and just enjoy games no matter the platform. No one in the media takes us serious anyway and most look at gaming is for kids, so us fighting/arguing won't change that image at all

here is hoping for a better all around gaming generation where we can stay together and make a difference while getting our voice heard by publishers, together we can stand as a gaming community while separated we are nothing that publishers will look at or hear

UnholyLight958d ago

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...

2muchw1nn1ng958d ago

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.
