Gamespot: Killzone 3 Hands On

As far as understatements go, saying that Killzone 2 was a nice-looking game is pretty high on the list. The game arrived in early 2009 like some benevolent time traveler, a first-person shooter sent from the future bearing the message "Fear not, friends. This is what PlayStation 3 graphics will look like in a few years' time." Killzone 3, its aptly named sequel, doesn't carry that same immediate impact. It looks and sounds nothing short of gorgeous, but its various improvements seem more focused on fleshing out the gameplay experience with greater variety, bigger set pieces, and deeper combat. We recently got to experience this development game plan firsthand, and it didn't take long to see that, with a game that already looked so good, building up the action seems like the right way to go.

... damn that's what's up. Everything else just got thrown in the garbage LOL :p (bite me Xbros)

... on to the review... I liked this bit the most

"... Depending on where your enemies are in the environment and what sorts of objects are nearby, hitting the L1 button can result in a number of different outcomes. Run straight up to a Helghast trooper, and you'll jam your knife in his eye ... "

oh my, Rico might have eased off on using the F word but let's up the "up-close-n-personal" ; death sequences please.

This game is going to raise the bar in 1st person shooters then gen, just like KZ2 did. I'm sure all the killzone fans, and the people willing to try killzone 3 will love it from graphics, to gameplay.

EDIT: OMG Herman gave us a spoiler!! Don't read any further because I'm going to say the ::SPOILER:: Herman said like by the end of the game you'll be sent into space.

EDIT2: Oh just re-heard him. He said eventually in the game you'll be sent into space. He was just naming some of the environments.

" though they'll do their best to guide the wreckage directly into you like a last-minute kamikaze."

Biatches just won't die peacefully. Lmao

I'm so excited for this title.

I think the Helghast are the coolest and best enemies in any fps. They will stoop to any level. I'm actually a lil scared of em while playing lol..

Gamespot just got Killzown3D

BabyTownFrolics3120d ago (Edited 3120d ago )

but I cant be the only one who finds "Killzown3d" to be annoying as hell.

that and "PS3: It Only Does ____________"

catch phrases bug me after awhile, I would just rather you use your words to describe your enthusiasm.

but to each their own.

And to think KZ3 is one year away and what has been shown is pre-alpha code

"Everything we are doing is pre-Alpha code (early version). There are still Killzone 2 characters in it now. There is no facial animation. Everything will improve."
