Killzone Shadow Fall Review (MasonicGamer)

MasonicGamer: The PlayStation 4 is here and so is ‘GRAPHICS The Game’ or as Sony prefers to call it, Killzone Shadow Fall… more like Shadow Flop. Yes I hate to the bearer of bad news but Killzone Shadow Fall is a major disappointment on all fronts, even if you’re coming into it with low expectations expectations. It will no doubt be remembered years from now as an early generation fail, the PlayStation 4′s very own Perfect Dark Zero.

Killzone Shadow Fall was first revealed earlier this year and soon became the PlayStation 4′s “killer app”, a game designed to show off what the PlayStation 4 could do and on that regard, it gets the job done. Sadly no one told Guerrilla Games that not everyone jerks off to pretty visuals and some of us like our games to have a little substance.

low expectations expectations? How did this get approved lol?

Maybe Jimmy Two Times decided to write a review. (I'm gonna go get the papers, get the papers.) :P

"It will no doubt be remembered years from now as an early generation fail, the PlayStation 4′s very own Perfect Dark Zero."

I had a great time with PDZ so that doesn't sound too bad.

"It will no doubt be remembered years from now as an early generation fail, the PlayStation 4′s very own Perfect Dark Zero."

I was actually thinking along the same lines. Killzone did remind me of PDZ and its shortcomings.

Its a good game it could have been better but common a 5. It has better graphics than previous kill-zone and offers new game play opportunities with the owl should have been a 7-8.

not 8.5 but will be better to give 7.5 or if you want realy less then its 7 ,yeah mp is realy good but still not very innovative or new but is executed welll and especia;y its map and its design which realy give rise to may ideas and give room for good decisions ,but campaign is realy bad ,if this game never had the mp than it may have been 5 from me ,same goes for bf4 campaign and 7 for cod ghost campaign ,but i can easily give 4 for its graphics and 1 for its gameplay,because stealth is realy bad and shooting stuff is realy boring becasue of realy bad AI and throught the game at most points you will find only 4 to 7 enenemy at one at screes or many a time 2 enemys at once which is realy bad.

Gamespot review says it's a great game. I haven't played it yet. But I'm thinking about getting it. This review seems too low according to my research.

Neonridr871d ago

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. You can't expect everyone to like the game...

That being said, play the game for yourself and make up your own mind. Regardless of what others say.

Thehyph871d ago

If you're more interested in the multiplayer aspect, then you may want to wait for the free multiplayer on the 28th-29th.

Everyone has differing opinions on the game, but it's almost safe to assume that the multiplayer is the better portion of the game.

I'm having a hard time getting through the single player campaign. It's really all over the place. Going from mission to mission is drastically different. From a mission that encourages stealth, to a mission where you're on a creepy ghost ship, to a mindless killing mission. Throw in some random jump puzzling and whatnot.

Maybe it was expectations on my part, but the single player didn't make the grade. I think Mercenary did the non-linear missions a bit better, and I preferred both KZ2 and KZ3 for the linear stuff. YMMV though.

Aside: The single player looks absolutely gorgeous. It looks next gen. I have CoD: Ghosts as well, and that game did not look anywhere near as next gen, ever.

Ju871d ago

That's called "variety". Maybe I am the only one who's actually glad a game designer is capable of designing a game like that. It's a shame that gamers are becoming too dump to adjust these days.

Thehyph871d ago

I dig variety, but variety should not be at odds with fun.

The first word that comes to mind in regards to my experience with the campaign is 'bland.'

There's a variety of missions that do not seem to be fleshed out. It feels like this game tried to cover as many bases as possible without truly covering any of them.

A variety of bland experiences still makes a bland whole.

I've played every Killzone save the PSP one, and the story of each and every one is pretty bland. I'm not knocking the devs. I, truly, believe that GG can make a great game. The problem lies in the KZ universe. It's uninspired.

Try not to be so dismissive. Most gamers like variety. That's why we buy multiple games. The problem in this case was one game going for too much variety and not realizing most of it.

JackISbacK871d ago

from gamespot its 7 and the game is still not that bad you sill can have fun playing its amazing mp if you like playing online and its ok if you want to show off with its graphics but think 1000 times before buying it solely for SP ,if you dont like online matches dont go for it,buying cod ghost will still be a goood choice for campaign ,why dont you go for ac black flag it is having great campaign and awesome multiplayer.

Fishy Fingers871d ago (Edited 871d ago )

Haha, I get that a review is merely some dudes opinion. But my god, what a drama queen. Less dramatics next time please.

TheBrownBandito871d ago

Review? Seen more balance in half a seesaw.

Pintheshadows871d ago

I've seen more balance in a 2 legged dog.

Duke19871d ago

I feel like more and more of these launch reviews are posting scores for shock value/page visits then actually rating the game.

I agree with alot of his points, but 5/10 sounds like an "avoid at all costs" which at least to me is way off. Yeah the story is flat, but the gameplay is solid and overall was a pretty enjoyable game.

GundalfDeGrej871d ago

...and some would call 5/10 "average". Hence why reviewscores are generally a bad idea.

I think the game seems alright. It could very well be the best next-gen game so far but that doesn't say much considering most next-gen games are getting pretty underwhelming reviews. If I had a ps4 I'd probably buy it simply because there's nothing else to buy.
