Watch ten minutes of pure Killzone 3 beta footage:
This plays and looks like COD and BFBC in killzone styled levels, soldiers andgame modes sadly i did't get into the beta even though i downloaded the theme it straight away =( so i can't say much about it but the loading screen when selecting classes and weapons says battlefield all over and i prefer killzone 2's 2bh with you how the ribbons pop up remind me of cod and the score on screen per kill etc GG need to make a way you can reverse meelee's maybe a quick time button mash like gears of war when you both try to chainsaw gun each other oh and GG add more recoil sort it out hope this games big i was more excited before before people told me how much its not like killzone and killzone 2 is my fav game online when played in tournaments as it real tense and strategic etc
Disagree. Kz3 doesnt play like CoD. But it is more accessible than KZ2 and that is a good thing. A couple of fixes like more recoil and bullet spread would make the game perfect.
Seriously, they should address that, as well as the "aim-assist". This isn't a by-product before the next COD. -End statement
Pretty confident the recoil will be addressed, it's basically been the one big issue to come out of the beta so far, and that is exactly the aim of the beta.
Yeah the recoil will be fixed, no doubts, I dont think it will be KZ2 level tho. Bullet spread is a big issue as well. You can pick the SMG, the LMG and snipe someone from afar. Ridiculous. That happen because when ADS-ing, weapons have no recoil (so you can spam the trigger) and bullets hit EXACTLY where you are aiming. There are other little details. Like EXOs autoaim. It doesnt make sense. With such a high rate of fir auto assist is something you dont need.
There is no aim assit its just like kz2
I agree. COD has definitely influenced KZ3 when you look at the load out screen. Career, Primary & secondary weapon, type of explosive, skill - all correspond to Class, primary & secondary weapon, type of grenade and your perk. It's not a bad thing, but interesting to note it's almost the same. In the game the points per kill, type of kill and killstreaks are all COD cues too. Looks pretty good though. If it's as addictive as COD it'll provide another good online fps.
And still, KZ3 is a lot better then.
imo you're a recent player.. and most shooters would look like cod to you... maybe even counter strike... killzone does not play like cod.. not one bit
I think the recoil is fine and the bullets do spread a lot... although the LMG damage is too high, like 3 bullets and your dead.
"although the LMG damage is too high, like 3 bullets and your dead."
Hey, In real life you could probably only take 1-2 from an LMG w/o it being instant death. LOL.
In real life you don't respawn when you die.
I bring people back to life all the time in Battlefield playing a medic. Which is the same way you can be brought back to life in reality. ;)
Im in the beta. Its awesome! raztad is right: it doesn't play like CoD. Its Killzone through and through, its just more accessible.
i like pie
i like tomato, i really don't know if im buying Killzone 3, Killzone 2 was o.k
Already looks clearly better than KZ2. Improved AA and overall much cleaner. The gameplay (had a quick go at a friends last night) is much better, no more silly dead zone, more responsive but still with that weighty feel. Sound, like always is outstanding, the guns feel and sound "meaty".
From my short time with this build, the game is going to be outstanding, what I hoped KZ2 would have been but was let down by lack luster game/gunplay (please, dont start shouting, "because you iz noobz").
Only negative, I'd like a little more kick/recoil from the guns, but thats easily tweaked and why they have a beta in the first place.
I'm pretty confident this is going to be one of the best FPS games yet.
I agree to certain extent Some people are upset with the changes I'm not. I've been defending KZ2 on N4G since I logged in this site in feb/2009 for the first time. I dont think KZ2 has a lackluster gunplay ALL THE CONTRARY. KZ2 gunplay is beast and requires a lot of skils you wont need anywhere else. The downside is people is easily put off by the step learning curve. KZ3 deserves better than being a niche game for a bunch of guys. I warmly welcome the changes and I've been enjoying the beta a lot.
That's fair. As much as I believe many defend it purely because it's a big exclusive, there are certainly many who did enjoys it's gameplay style. But, I dont think those fans will be turned off by the changes (like yourself) as it's still very much KZ and still maintains it's own style/feel.
These changes just make the game a pleasure to play out of the gate and that alone can be very important.
Beautifully said raztad.
I'm miles from being a top tier player in KZ2 but I'm fast becoming the team gimp in this beta, gotta get familiar with those maps, I'm really getting wupped.
I will have shooter overdose next year, KZ3, resistance 3, Socom 4 and Uncharted 3 all in the same year. I wish Socom had come out this year.
Ha, well the key to FPS MP games is learning and knowing how to use the maps to your advantage. It's early days, sod the KDR, just have a laugh.
Thanks Fishy, sound advice but to be honest if I ever took the KDR seriously I would have given up playing mutiplayer shooters a long time ago. Still, its always nice to have a mediocre to good performance. ;-)
Needs more recoil, actually it just needs some recoil isntead of zero :)
I'd be lying if I said, I didn't want the game right here right now. What I liked so much about Killzone 2 was that it was a unique FPS experience. It wasn't perfect, but it was different. Looks like the new Killzone has stayed true to its roots, but as many have said, Guerilla Games have tried to make it more accessible to everyone. Bring on 2011!
One thing that sucked with KZ2 was how tacticians could throw a spawn grenade anywhere. It caused every objective based game type to devolve into a clusterf*** of suicide runs that made it impossible to achieve the objectives. It looks like KZ3 has addressed that by designating spawn points that tacticians can unlock instead. Very welcome change.
finally got my beta code.just got it a few minutes ago.if u posted in the beta rejects forum on the killzone 3 website go on to the website sign in and check ur private messages.if u were 1 of the people who should of got in you should be after getting a message.
Just a request... If you are in the beta, please post on the official forums and let them know what needs to be addressed. I don't want to hear the extreme level of bitching that kz2 had about issues that should have been addressed in the beta stage. I don't really want to play the beta, I'd rather wait for the final product. Just do your part to make it stand out. Over on the neogaf forums, they are really up in arms about the current state of the beta. I really don't think they get the point of "beta", but I just hope that enough intelligent, well spoken people communicate with GG and help improve the game.
Has a very cinematic picture quality. I'm very impressed.
Killzone looks fugging sweet. Cant wait! COD watch out!
I'm waiting on a good person to present me with a working beta code in my PM box.
And will get the favour returned from any beta i get in future.
