Ironstar: For the third time today I played the Killzone 3 multiplayer demo and I got to say it is one of the top three games I played at PAX this year.
WHEN KILLZONE 3 COMES OUT IN 2011, IT WILL OWN THAT YEAR. ;)
The Killzone franchise is the god of all console FPSs this generation. All hail to the King!
bad company takes that title from it imo.
Killzone looks beautiful but doesnt have the lasting appeal as battlefield. I can play it for a few hours, but I cant see me playing it for months. My PS3 suffered the YLOD and I had to buy BFBC2 for my 360. Since I achieved so much, I had to also purchase the VIP and SpecAct kits. I cant put that game away and I have never been addicted to a video game. I love a good shoot, especially military based, but outside of good graphics, KillZone 2 can be boring after awhile. The classes and lack of a perk system is not appealing. When you play a game with destructible environments, it's hard to go back to structures that stand still after being hit with RPGs.
theres really not much variety in killzone, I play it quite a bit and its not as "hardcore" as people make it out to be. Its not that hard to play but like you said is a bit boring. I think people think its hardcore or difficult because of the iffy controls but they just take a bit gettin used to.
KZ2 >>> Bad Company 2. They are both very different games though.
Ahh.. Just in time, I'll watch while I eat my spaghetti bolognese.. :D
anyone using move for killzone 3?
I`m sure I`ll fool around with it, but I`d rather use my DS3 :)
I'll definately have a good few goes wth move to see if it improves my KD ratio.
This looks like k2 IMO.
Yeah, it does look pretty much identical to KZ2. If someone told me this was a snow map pack for KZ2 I'd certainly believe it. I suppose that's not a bad thing, though. I had a lot of fun playing KZ2 (got Valor Grand Cross through normal play), and it's still a top tier title graphically.
...so it looks good
I wanna see the new sights on guns and that
This looks so smoothed out compared to Killzone 2. I love Killzone 2, but I don`t even need to play this to realize that it`s a lot smoother.
I'm no KZ buff, but this game looks faster, or is it just me? He got jacked up, hahahahahah!!!!
,... I like that it is faster,.. these guys can push hardware,.. lol KZ2 multiplayer looks better than single player games,..it is beautiful,..
And this is only pre alpha code
Since the guy said in the video that there would be a public beta coming in a few weeks I would call this beta code. Alpha code at the very least.
actually it says PRE ALPHA CODE right there in the vid.
gameplay looks alot smoother and more responsive.
NICE.... O_O ... *salivates*
Holy shit that map looks good! There better be a jungle map in multi. Edit: HAHAHA! The melee at 10:50 looks awesome! Those will definitely come in handy for revenge kills.
So can't wait for this game ^_^
Anyone saying that this looks exactly like KZ2 hasn't played it in my opinion. Ofcourse it has the Killzone look, but it's so much more colorful and smoother. It's so beautiful for an MP game. Really unbelievable. I love it.
That looks pretty much like KZ2 and I played the crap out of it. Great game, not slamming but it is not a big change. Runs a little smoother. IF someone said this is new DLC for the last one I would have no problem believing them.
I cant wait to rape peep in this game :D
why would you want to rape a peep they are magically delicious and widely available during Easter... why Drew....WHYYYY xD
anyone know if theres new weapons in multiplayer?? i mean like guns not mechs or anything. and are attachments confirmed?? cuz all i see thats new so far is the dot sights for the heghast assualt rifle and semi auto rifle
each from the 5 carrers "class" have 6 diferent main weapons that you can chose from. Killzone 3 also have new feature called "skills" You can select only one from extra health, two primari weapons, armor and few others i think. and each carrer has few extra abilities this time and not only two like last time.
the knife kills!!!
multiplayer in 3d?
<<screams like a little girl>>
loved the video.. hated the voice of the guy giving instructions -:( this is my most anticipated game of 2011 :) (for now at least ;) )
did he say public beta!YEAH!!!!!!!
it just looks so delicious.
i hope it controls better because it looks like the same gameplay that i got tired of months ago... its always a bummer when they use the same sounds, hud, and i fakin hate the person who came up with the black&white w/blood screen when your about to die!wtf is that?!the last thing you need when your about to die IS YOUR FAKIN VIEW BLOKED! please devs stop this bloody screen damage bullshit, it just helps the person who shoots first most of the time!
Hold on, if you just got shot, don't you think you should be at a disadvantage to the guy that hasn't been shot?
the disadvantage should only be loss of health NOT HALF/COLOR BLIND! damn noobs nowadays...
If you're already down and out, how does it help you to make a comeback? That's the point of these partial-healing schemes, otherwise, why not just make it a 1-shot/1-hit kill for everybody without all this "bloody view" nonsense? It was fine in COD4. mw2's change was for the worse....it's not nearly as bad in Killzone 2 if I recall but still slightly annoying.
If you've been shot you should have reduced capabilities in some way, it doesn't make sense that you could be on the verge of death yet still fight back as if you were fully healthy. But blood splatter is only one option for how to accomplish this. For example they could do something like progressively slow down your maximum movement and turning speed as you take more and more damage.

So this time you have to make sure the medic is 100% death if you don't he can get back and Kill you .
your such a noob... just keep playing cod..
You play MW and loved it then keep buying WAW, MW2, Black ops. It's the same game with new skins.
The improvements they made are phenomenal! GG, GG. (See what I did thar?) xD Also, the fact they implemented 3D AND improved the graphics is astonishing. That in itself is proof enough that 3D will not flop. I'm not gonna watch anymore footage, don't wanna spoil it. xD
To abstain to playing to kill zone 3 noobs, girls and casuals for your we have the halo reach casual
I've found something you could benefit from...
If you are a fps i will tell you that you need to get into this game it will be amazing! top quality experience.
I think this game looks AWESOME.... But sadly it just looks WAY too much like killzone 2 FOR MY TASTE... The guy said that all the weapons were unlocked... but I did not see one new weapon in the whole demo and no weapon attachments. iN TODAYS MARKET THAT WOULD BE A FATAL FLAW FOR THE GAME. The Online multiplayer mode looked just like the one in KZ2 also. Dont get me wrong I love Kz2 But If they dont change anything people will just keep playing KZ2 which is a classic game. Where is the Map when you press select? where is the character custimization? COME ON DEVS dont get conservative and make a good game when it can be EPIC!!!
Well, what do you expect from a pre-alpha version. I can imagine that the final version will include a lot more other and newer weapons and features. To be honest I'm quite shocked that they are so confident in the game by letting us play the MP long before the game will actually come out. I dare the CoD people doing that.
But I can tell you that the game looks much better and even better than Uncharted 2. Plus many of the skins and disings are from Killzone 2 plus this is just pre-alpha . There are new MP modes few new guns, more balance in the classes and maps, they just got a great game Killzone 2 and improve and perfect everything from it. Add new abilities a new feature "skills" 3d tech, Move. But the game does look much much better but it's imposible to tell the diference from a poor quality Youtube video. And it look better from a already amazin looking Game wich is impresive.
It's not gonna look like COD/Halo anytime soon dude, "thank god for that". Just love the way it is, gritty, dark, muted and epic.
Dude, you sound like you've played way too mkany generic shooters. this game is in 3D which makes it alot harder for it to look this good. I can do without all the upgrades and unlocks. KZ is about one team vs another, with similar weapons and choices. Not one upgrade or weapon, or killstreak perk vs another. Skill vs skill. Side ways movement with burst fire, rather than auto aim. Y You can become so skillful that someone from behind rarely kills you... Also new players start on a path where they don't get owned because someone has ranked up more.
The announcer sounds like a robot. It looks like Killzone 3 runs smoother.
a definite improvements in terms of frames per seconds and actual gameplay responsiveness for multiplayer, I was really annoyed by the minimal delay KZ2 had, so much that I actually sold the game back to the retailer I'm no fps fan but this is shaping up to be the best shooter catered for consoles.
@6:43 Pure ownage, LOL.
So when the player (a Helghan) walked up to a downed ISA opponant, why did the 'revive' option appear on screen? Why revive an enemy? Looks great though!
To heal himself. Pretty cool I think. In the middle of the battle and you need health get it from the enemy you killed. Brilliant!!!!!!
For starters KZ2 has one of the best graphics engines this gen, which gives the whole KZ universe a very distinct feel. Secondly KZ2 was a graphics master piece, so looking like KZ2 is no bad thing. Lastly since when did 'looks like its prequel' become an issue? it was not an issue with Halo 2 or 3! Not an issues with MW2 and now Black opse etc etc, so why is it an issue no wwith KZ3?
aThank god they got rid off points pop ups at kills.
Dude you are indeed an awesome person. Completely agree. I can read the points myself. Dont need any crap flashing infront of me.
Look at those halo fangirls bashing, go back to your halo part and play it. Killzone 2 kick Halo reach in high heaven, let alone Killozne 3. Those halo fans cannot see the different between grafichs and war atmosphere :)
The fact that it looks like the disguise feature is actually going to work in Killzone 3 gets me very hyped indeed. February is going to be a very busy month what with this and Bulletstorm.
A few things to note... Things I like: 1)Snipers now contribute more to the team, because the "X" can now be seen by other team mates. 2)Squad size increased to 8 3)Weapon, health armour load outs 4)Seems more than one default spawn area? Things I dont like 1)Less recoil 2)Smoother/less heavier movement 3)Reminds you to reload (a noob feature IMO) The heavy machine gun needs to have more recoil and less accuracy, like KZ2. A definite must buy, day one for me. However I'll need to get around some of the above.
Looks good...much more responsive. I tried Killzone 2's mp a few months ago and I realized why it never caught on with me...movement felt too sluggish to be really enjoyable.
Sort of look like KZ2. Then again KZ2 is my favorite FPS franchise. Halo is second, though I only really liked Halo 1. I haven't played Halo 3 so I might like that as well. Going to play "Reach" for the single player aspect. You know they should really try more innovative ways of playing multiplayer if they insist on putting multiplayer in FPS games. I have an idea called "9 Lives" in which like it says you only have 9 lives, and its tied to a bomb that you carry with you around a shrinking map. The map gradually gets smaller as time goes on. Or rather the longer they time exists the smaller the map gets, and you have safe zones circular...that prevent you from having the bomb stuck on you. You can only be in the safe zone for a set amount of time. I'd prob have it where the safe zones can teleport as well or soemthing like that. Its a work in progress. lol anyway I can't wait for this game but more so for the single player aspect although I'll do the MP for sure.
And they say Sony fans run this website. I disagree. On to the topic KZ3 is my shooter of this gen. I like how people say its generic. I would say that Halo as well as MW are generic.
