This game fell short of it's intended mark. The gameplay was pretty mediocre.
AKissFromDaddy  +   168d ago
I disagree with that notion on the multiplayer. Campaign, yes. lol.
Muffins1223  +   168d ago
The multiplayer does not have that much content to it either.....it was playable and not bad though. But that in no way means it was good. I also agree it is mediocre,to me its just a rushed out game for launch and to show off the ps4 graphics. Honestly it deserves its review scores and only people defending it and saying its a good/excellent game are biased n4g users and that's a fact.

Id have to disagree i thought the single player was a brilliant old school style shooter. definitely worth a playthrough

re: multiplayer i feel the style of game is more suited to a lower player count and most of the maps seem to be too busy which brings performance down, i feel an 8 v 8 would have been better suited

I fount nothing wrong with the game play but that my opinion and I played all the killzones

Same boat. I believe the game play is perfect, so far, and an improvement from Killzone 3 because it's gameplay and animations are faster.

Additionally, the map design isn't as ridiculously large, in my very personal opinion, as in Killzone 3, making fights personal and more satisfying.

@Father_Merrin
To each's own I guess. However, in comparison to the other exclusives(The Last of US, God of War), Killzone's story is the weakest, or at the very least the way it's experienced.

Can you imagine me and you on the same team disagreeing how the story should be? We'd probably argue about what players should be doing, feeling when they're doing it, and how to rise those feelings out of them in the best way possible.

Nevertheless, not to pick only on Killzone ShadowFall's story, I watched and conclude the same notions about other FPS campaigns: Blacks Ops I/II, Battlefield 3/4, Rage, and Modern Warfare 3, in regards to FPS.

Personally, I was satisfied with everything but game types. I still want Free-For-All and Gun Game but I understand you were completely disappointed with Killzone Shadow Fall and that's understandable.

I can only hope the next sequel appeals to you and others who share exact or similar disappointments.
Muffins1223  +   165d ago
Have more levels like the forest and actually be able to use your drone zipline more. The drone had so much potential but you can clearly see the game was rushed. The AI where really stupid and the hard difficulty just made them do a lot damage and have amazing aim. I cant believe the amount of ignorance on its faults for this game on this site.

Im not saying its bad but its far from halo,god of war, or uncharted level that killzone fans try to make it. For example,some guy on here said ". I believe the game play is perfect, so far, and an improvement from Killzone 3" Its perfect?Are you kidding me? What about the 3-5 game modes? What about the lame characters that no one cared about?The main protaganist is as almost genric as the call of duty's protaganist! And trust me its not hard to have a better game than killzone 3.

Killzone 2 and 1 where the best and they took all the vehicles out of killzone which they are just now adding in dlc(jetpack) which proves my point how it was rushed and incomplete. I missed actually feeling like i was carrying a weapon and there was a sort of weight to your characters and then there suddenly like "fuck that it sucks lets make the player movement like a call of duty player".I SUSPECT them to give DLC for free because killzone shadow fall lacked features that other killzones had that it should of had.

Things that needed work:
1.Had great level design IN SOME parts but at the same time had HORRIBLE level design in the game in other parts.

2.Ai was incomplete and cheap with god-like aim on harder difficulty's

3.Story was good and dialogue/voice acting was acceptable and decent but the characters where absolutely boring as hell! The only one that was good was Maya.

4.And finally it just lacked content and features overall throughout the whole game.

Please play half life,bioshock,halo,far cry, or left 4 dead. They are much better FPS.If you truley dont see that then I have lost hope for the killzone fanbase and n4g users defending this game because it amazes me how they ignore the flaws and I almost think its because xbox fanboys brag about halo and they want to act like killzone is like a "halo" to playstation but its not....its just not. Lets just say theirs a reason why killzone is a launch title and halo and uncharted are not,they actually take there time on it and make it good.

For the most part the only people who will disagree with this are very few unbiased gamers but mostly fanboys of killzone. I understand that some people will truly like it not due to fanboyism and everyone has a different opinion but it makes me cringe when they hype/praise it to the same level as other famous FPS games.

Angry Joes review sums up my opinion perfectly....

Understood. I understand the flaws you spread out.

Personally, I disliked feeling heavy and enjoy the current movement. Additionally, the story is bad and I've yet to campaign for it, but I will defend the multiplayer because I personally love it.

You're right about The Forest, it has a great design. Additionally, I like The Park, The Station, and The Spire the most. Including The Forest, those are my personal favorites.

We agree on the story and we could be split on the multiplayer so I'll declare that I do love the multiplayer but I did miss jetpacks, but they're brought back. All the DLC maps are free and we've gotten three good ones so far. I do miss Mechs,...a lot actually and I want them back but they'd have to add rockets back to counter them. I don't mind that.

I wish you had more bubbles because this is truly an enjoyable discussion between us.

Can't complain about free DLC. Usually these days asking price is $15 for 3-4 maps or $50 for season pass which fragments the shit out of community...
DrunkRussian  +   168d ago
Is anybody playing multiplayer? How is it? I played a lot KZ2 and it was really fun. KZ3 online I do not like..
shivvy24  +   168d ago
Yeah you can easily get into a game ATM, I really like it but it depends on a persons taste, it feels weighty and has no aim assists which I like
Lawboy2  +   168d ago
I'm wondering about the same thing..my copy should come in today so I still want to play the online...hopefully ppl are still on
FunAndGun  +   167d ago
There are still people playing and I can always find full games...I almost always play 24-player Warzones.

I would suggest you start in the 'New Recruits' server as there is a pretty high learning curve with this game and you might get frustrated going up against veterans.
Lawboy2  +   167d ago
@ fun and gun

Yeah I saw that when I played the demo....I really enjoyed it and would have picked it up then but I had already spent to much money buying titanfall and plants v zombies....so I'm super excited to get started just hope I'm not to late

If you still play do you mind adding me on psn
FunAndGun  +   167d ago
Sure, reply with your PSN ID or just send it to me in a private message.

I will add ya and we can kill some ISA scum together. I can answer any questions you have with the game as well. I have been playing it since launch.
badz149  +   167d ago
@Lawboy2

You will always find full lobby. Still lots of people playing and it's quite fun. I prefer sci-fi like Resistance and KZ over real military like BF or CoD btw
TheFutureIsBlue  +   167d ago
Personally I've logged more hours into KZ multiplayer than any other game on my PS4.
Bennibop  +   167d ago
I have been playing this game every day online since launch. Amount on players has dropped but there is still more than enough for a game.

Personally I think killzone: SF online is better than COD: Ghosts.
Bundi  +   167d ago
Your opinion and is valid if you have indeed played both games. Others disagree mostly.
Bennibop  +   167d ago
Thank you for being level headed, it is just my opinion. I have been playing B4, Ghosts, KZ:SF (all ps4) and Titanfall (x1.) Loving BF4 mostly followed by KZ and short blasts on Titanfall. Just not getting on with Ghosts and its the first COD I have not prestige.
johndoe11211  +   167d ago
A lot of people will disagree with your comment because they have been spoiled by cod. This is an extremely different game than cod. It is not noob friendly, you actually have to work to get kills and play the objective.

People jump on killzone and expect to be pros like any 6 year old can do in cod and when they find out that it's a completely different ballgame they quit and say the game is filth.

This is one of the best online multiplayers I've ever played and I like the fact that it's a difficult game. It seperates the good players from the bad. In killzone if someone has a 1.50 and up kdr they are actually very good at the game and that says a lot. Every tom, dick and harry has a 2.0 and up in cod and it's just ridiculous.

Shut up Bundi. You haven't played the game! They are still many people online and the support for GG is great. Hater!
Salooh  +   167d ago
Killzone is awesome .

Killzone 2 was perfect. Wow factor on all sides.

Killzone 3 : Better graphics , fun gameplay especially with Jetspacks or something like that lol .

Shadow fall : Awesome graphics. Had wow factors in that side. The gameplay is good but compared to the previous ones it's the worst because of less features. If it had bigger maps and all killzone 2 features it would have been huge.

windblowsagain  +   168d ago
For me KILLZONE2 Has one of the best Single player campaigns of Recent times.

You feel like your in a battle. Other games just pretend.:)

COD feels like your in a game where enemies pop out of thin air wave after wave.

BF4 MP is awesome, but SP is crap. Same with BF3. Should leave SP alone.

Resistance 3 was also better then COD/BF Campaigns.
Budobear  +   168d ago
This thread reads in a very odd way, everyone seems to be far to nice. 'Oh I see you don't agree with me and I respect that but...' its like there has been a warning to be nice or else.
(its not a bad thing, it just struck me as kind of funny)

I didn't mind the single player part of the game, the story lines are never that great in any FPS really, but then story lines in games are just there to keep you ploughing through the game to the end. Being an old gamer who can remember way back when games never had a story line (other than shoot the Space invaders etc) its never really that important to me.

The mulit-player side of the game (I think) is great. Its objective based which I like, it has moments of absolute mayhem...which again I like. Its just a lot of people who play it don't seem to realise you need to try and do the objectives and revive your team mates etc to win. If you want a deathmatch, chose a deathmatch game don't go into a warzone game if you aren't going to help the team.

The new map is good, played it a few times last night, loving the blue floaty stuff.

Now just bring the co-op please!
Oh and tell me where all the boxes can be found, as I've only got 60 so far.
AKissFromDaddy  +   167d ago
" its like there has been a warning to be nice or else. " I started it off because I don't want to argue but accept people's experiences. Like you wrote, it's not a bad thing to see. The alternative is so horrible, lol.

In defense to the people farming kills in objective games types, they're consistent because it's happens every multiplayer shooter, in my opinion.

Nevertheless, I think adding a boost to a team completing objectives would deter farming for kills in objective game types. Examples: Team Power Boost for one minute, Team Speed Boost for one minute, or Team Defense for one minute.

What do you think? Sounds good?
Budobear  +   167d ago
Sounds good.
I'm sure they used to do something similar with the ribbons in KZ3, if you earnt a ribbon there was a temporary perk that came with it. Though I may be wrong, as it feels like years since I played it.
KUV1977  +   167d ago
60? I play every day and I have one, in numbers: 1 and I received that one accidentally. I don't want to read guides to find them but with the amount I am playing I don't understand how I can't seem to find them. Those boxes are a weird feature for sure. Otherwise I have also spend more time in Killzone than in any other game.
Budobear  +   167d ago
I tend to have a sprit round the map and have a quick look if I can't see them stop and get on with the game. (set to scout with teleport and beam out of the base when you spawn to get a proper head start)
Open maps, check ledges above head height, tucked away in behind the market stalls or under the stairs in the slums. Anywhere with lower light is good as they glow slighly. The forest is good for scout just checking the tops of the rocks.

Then back to the objectives or you'll become obsessed with finding em!
Hope that helps you find some more.

Isn't this game pretty much dead?
FunAndGun  +   167d ago
While the player numbers are not very high, there are plenty of loyalist/fans who play and there are always full rooms.

They just added a new map, They are adding jetpacks soon, and they haven't released the co-op yet. The game is far from dead.

I never really understood the notion that if hundreds of thousands of players aren't playing at one time, the game must be dead. I have found that the matches are greatly improved because the hardcore players are sticking with it, and the competition is more fierce.
badz149  +   167d ago
@Red_Eye

Just because you don't play it, doesn't mean it's dead!
Red_Eye  +   167d ago
@badz149

Didn't mean it that way! Was considering this or BF4 when I got my PS4 and got a bad impression of the life of Shadow Fall from what I read on the forums so that was my lasting impression.

Not that the BF4 forums had much praise either but their complaints weren't about the game dying...

KinjoTakemura  +   167d ago
I found the campaign tedious, boring, and lacking action. Never played multiplatyer. Maybe the developers of Killzone should've spent less time worrying about multiplayer mode and add more depth and gameplay to the campaign.
