Ironstar: Killzone 3 has PS3 gamers excited; we just can't get enough of the Killzone series. Not many FPS(s) have appealed to me since Killzone 2. Perhaps the tactical and realistic nature of Killzone 2 appealed to be more than other FPS(s).
Better than KZ2 in terms of gameplay, that's for sure. Technically, it also seems like it's "bigger and better" than KZ2, if not more "bad ass".
I was blown away by the trailer, and I am definitely loving the direction they are taking. I also love the colorful nature of the game. I never thought it would be so colorful. It seems like no one can complain about the grey and brown anymore, this game seems like it will have some truly beautiful environments.
I think complaining about the color palette of a game is pointless. Usually games have a specific color palette to illustrate not only settings, cohesive style and theme, but also to relay a certain feel of a game. Gears of War was fine with the colors it had, sure they added a few more in GeOW2, but did it really add all that much to it? I don't think it did. War is gritty, uncolorful and I'm assuming dark. It's not like Bulletstorm who is intentionally going for vibrant tropic like colors. I think it all depends on what the developers intentions are, no matter how "overused" the color palette some people online feel that it is.
I wasn't complaining, I just know that there are a lot of people who were complaining about the color palette. I think KZ2 color palette was good for its environment, but I am glad they took this direction in taking us to a world where more color could be possible.
The new melée attacks (kicks,neck snaps) look so cinematic and badass son. Can't wait. Plus, sevs new look is more badass aswell.
Slide into cover now? Then quickly jump over the cover and do melee attacks? Seems like they made sure to cater to the run-n-gun gamers like me. ^_^
Tenko needs to do a new VID!!!!!!!!!
wtf is wrong with you? blown away by the trailer? were we watching the same video? @Redrum the (melees) also happen to look fake redrum, and other games have already done this so how is this badass?
How many other games let you stab someone in the eye? Yeah, that's what I thought. Stop being a troll.
im not talking about the stabbing in the eye who gives a crap bout that , but necksnaps,kicks,have been done
Was there really a need to write an article on a trailer, we all saw the damn thing it's not like you know any more about it than us. Jeez talk about desperate for hits. Stop writing your bullshit articles and stick to posting actual NEWS on this site. And nobody gives a damn about your "analysis" you're nobodies.
so true, btw guys, gametrailers already managed to cut parts out of this recent video, including knife stabbing. heres the unedited version: http://www.youtube.com/watc... very beautyful stab into eye, badass.
the visuals look alot cleaner and crisp in comparison to KZ2 which was a pretty dirty game it reminded me of Stalingrad, also did anyone notice how faster and more fluid the gameplay has improved in comparison to KZ2, the levels look much bigger as well.
I wish the makers of Bodycount would put as much effort in their game as Guerrilla are.
twisted vicious nasty fukin epic! yea! did you see the neck snap! got a lil ufc in this beyach!
it looks alot better then the first which i thought was amazing. i want to see how crysis compares to this on the graphics front.
but its still not there with crysis. this is pre alpha so there is room for improvment, but shear amount of detal and pixles i dont think kz will make it, the ram is just 2 limited. http://www6.incrysis.com/sc... http://www6.incrysis.com/sc... just look at the ground you can see every twig, bush and leaf with the game looking photo realistic. the lighting is the best i have ever seen, also i believe crysis is considered open world with partial destruction. very big feet. the one thing that killzone proves is how badly pc games are not optimized. if gg can get close looking games to a pc with 4gigs of ram while ps3 has only 1/8 of that and a weaker graphics card(and some help from cell graphics processing im guessing) makes me wonder what a gaming computer could realy do if developers took there time like gg. as far as im concerned gg is an elite developer in the industry by far.
I am a PC gamer and i am fed up with those damn crysis bullshots getting posted ffs the game does not look that good running, seriously it helps no one if you want to do a crysis 2 kz3 comparison compare both the videos on gametrailers.
PS3 use different XDR RAM than a PC, and is 6 time faster than regulair RAM what in the most PC have. It is also very efficient than the most PC RAM'S. And, you cannot compare with a Jungle level with a Snow level, it's a whole different subject. Further, Crysis must have only grafichs, Killzone has far more than just Grafichs, better visual/ligthing and Psycics. And here we go, hit the disagree button for no reason and without any explain.
nothing is going to "out do" a pc computer system but hey...gotta admit that playstation 3 has the best damn games/graphics we have seen on a console thus far am i right? and looking at uncharted 2, its not that far from crysis. ;)
You can compare snow and jungle levels, in terms of texture resolutions, and sorry that trailer showed too many low resolution textures. The PS3 rams are not that much faster as far as i know, throw in a source please? Crysis has as good physics as KZ, the lightning is really up to what you like. Anyways, personally i think Killzone is a better game, but Crysis got better graphics.
but... the thing is you cannot really base an engein on graphics alone, gameplay matters...(and believe me the graphics are jawdropping) but gameplay is why killzone 2 earned my favorite shooter of all time because of that. now crysis has a very advanced engein (duh!) but just like homeboy jack burton said, it honestly does not look that good running, it looks just as good as UNCHARTED 2. that bieng said, on topic: killzone 3 is going to be on my radar every day until it comes out...i cannot get over that "fast paced killing spree" incredible.
@ Jack Burton : Those aren't bullshots, Crysis can look that good. Here's a screenshot, only mod used here was a weapon skin mod. EDIT : Dunno why it's so damn tiny, here's the full size version. Only thing missing is AA. http://img35.imageshack.us/...
I can agree that Crysis still has the edge in higher quality textures ... but I think Crysis has already fallen behind both Uncharted 2 and KZ in terms of animation and mocap. The NPCs die like paper dolls compared to what KZ does. And your right, it goes to show how far GG has come to becoming a great developer, but it also proves that PS3 has ALOT of muscle for a console.
i totally agree that kz2 has much better game play than crysis, and they still have the best animations, the hit detection is amazing. i still think crysis has a much better story than kz2 tho, i thought kz2 was forgettable in story, which is the one thing they really need to work on in number 3.
that neck snap was evil. when is this coming out? from the sewers he comes...the ratfuker.
The pre alpha footage already looks better than every other fps to date, and yes that includes crysis 2.
Things just got interesting. Let the competition begin. And I agree that shit looked better than any other FPS I've seen to date. This blows away MW2, halo and the rest. Whoa!
Just watched the trailer in HD and it leaves me speachless. I am in awe at the visual detail, GG are golden. Gotta love 1st party awesomeness.
after seeing last weeks crysis2 footage - KZ3 blows that away with the incredibly violent, fast-paced combat.(not to mention the AMAZING visuals) and the combat here is early in the game - the "capturing the courtyard" level in KZ2 will seem like a walk-in-the-park compared to what we'll face in the latter half of this game!.......SWEET!
killzone 3 looks insane! can't wait the water & snow effects were orgasmic.
I want to fly those drop ships woooot!!! Did MS even know there was a show on? dont they own GT.com!?
this game is going to be so freaking amazing. gg has the best animations i have ever seen, that neck snap and eye stab......... poor helghast. and the cover system man what an overhall can slide and jump over stuff now. the game is looking better than kz2 already (mabye its the lighting or more textures) and this is pre alpha damnnnn. this will be my game of the year as long as deadspace2 dont drop this year(best new ip and horror game ever) play that shyt in the dark with surround sound its crazy.
if I sat and looked at that heaving ocean much longer, I swear I would get seasick ! lol. Can't even begin to imagine watching it in 3D.
Killzone 3 looks sharp and smooth, Guerrilla has really brought it this time around.
tobebech I'm agree in some matters. Jungle level is differnce than a level with moving wave's big glacier with snow and atmosphere, you don't have that in Jungle in Crysis. it happend allot more in the ice level than in calm Jungle level. The trailer is just pre alpha, what you must do is compare the settings from the game not only grafichs ;) I agree that Crysis has better grafichs, but i think Killzone 3 will over run Crysis in all aspect in the end product. EDIT: Is there no mod present? becouse some group of fanboys report me for trolling to take some bubbnles. I hate this bubble system.
True, however there are ice levels too in Crysis, anyways i wait and see that GG have in store for the final version of KZ3, anyways it will still be an awesome game, and overall much likely a better game than Crysis.
It looks the same as KZ2.. just compare BOTH e3 TRAILERS.. only the colours are different. Only Fanboys deny.
lol how can maniacmansion not notice the difference? because hes console of choice is sub hd so he games on a sdtv so everythiing looks the same?
It's okay. Relax. You might get your chance to experience something of this caliber on xbox some day....till the next gen xbox though lol.
that trailer was AMAZING and the funny thing is that the game isn't even coming out this year(pre-Alpha build)...KZ3 will be a MASSIVE BOMB when it comes out next year.. I seen so many new thing's in the trailer...and they are still holding surprises back..& Fully DESTRUCTIBLE ENVIRONMENTS WHAT? & WHAT'S UP with the teaser before this trailer when the ISA dude put's the Helghast mask on? & the Ghraphic's look alot sharper and smoother.. plus with 3-D GG you are owning the Comp. I applaud you hand's down KZ3 will be 1 of the best shooter's next year not saying that it will completely own anything in it's way all this game need's is CO-OP and that will be the Icing on the cake...
Don't get your hopes up for fully destructible environments, that's just a rumor that's gotten out of hand. Guerilla has said that the environments will be more destructible, though.
Clearly you havent played kz2 maniac, the lighting, particle effect, ambientocclusion, textures, water geometry and shaders are a massive improvement. People are clearly scared that kz3 is making their precious crysis 2 look tame and downplaying kz3 in full force. pathetic.
i did.. just check my my acc: SizzlingHot85 And for my opinion KZ2 wasnt great at all... and didnt even finish the game. As for the KZ3 trailer i see no difference in gameplay/ graphics.
You don't see a difference in gameplay? even with the sliding into cover mechanic, even with the new melee mechanic, the jetpack, the obviously smoothed out shooting mechanic and cover leaping? Not to mention the weaponry. Come on, I can understand not liking a game but give credit where credit is due this game is better/shaper now, in pre-alpha than KZ2 was finished.
your comments clearly show your inability to carry on any discussion based on what we all watched......you seem to want to fight or start trouble. - and that's bogus.
"As for the KZ3 trailer i see no difference in gameplay/ graphics." its funny how this phrase applies to halo, mw2, gears ect ect (anything on xbox), but when its a ps3 sequel its a different story. im sure kz3 will be awesome and i cant wait to play it, but it def still looks like kz2 to me. i expect that from a sequel though since it is, well, a sequel after all. the fanboys are just hypocrites and its funny to observe all you stupid sheep.
Oh yeah not saying this is official but Im pretty sure there will be co-op in KZ3 i CANT WAIT FOR KZ3D man!!! JETPACKS look so off the chain 2...umm maniac did you not see the new gun, jetpack's, melee, sliding to cover run-in-gun action.. Oh I 4got your BLIND!!! lol but uh take it how you wanna day 1 buy for me hahaha http://www.examiner.com/x-3...
You need to get you're eyes checked. Looks smother, Has a bunch of new features, and is only in the pre alpha stage. I don't even think there is a game out that can compete with killzone 2, And that game is going on two years old! I beat you're real excited about the new halo huh?
You can definitely see the Naughty Dog influence. Day 1 for me.
Game of the year right here.
"Not many FPS(s) have appealed to me since Killzone 2. " i agree here... ;)
Game should be great fun, hoping for a Co-op announcement at E3... :P
