ps3community.ch - We've released the Single Player Kill Zone 3 gameplay, and tell you in our XXL preview with 30 minute 'video of our impressions!
Killzone 3 XXL Preview Singleplayer from PS3Community.ch on Vimeo.
I posted in the submission that failed after watching all thirty minutes so I'll post it here. I'm probably going to get a lot of shit for this comment but that wasn't very impressive at all. The game itself was very linear and the boss fight was pretty boring. Do we really need another scripted sequence where we continuously shoot painfully obvious weak points on some giant monstrosity that goes down way too easily?
Looks great to me, view makes it boring you have play it yourself.
compare the atmosphere and action to other shooters, and ul see ur playing next gen with kz3
Play Killzone 2/3 on Elite and tell me that.
Anyone that complains about games being to easy or short need to play the game on their FIRST run on the hardest difficulty. The game will take much longer and be a lot more engaging. That is what I always do. And it makes gaming in general a lot more fun.
Your just another gamer ready to gripe and whine and expect disappointment before you actually have played the whole game. All shooters are linear no matter how many gimmicks you put in it so pointing out that KZ3 is linear is not a negative point. So how about playing the game THEN jump online to say how it disappoints you and not vice versa
crysis and far cry 2 were not linear.
SJPFTW you mean Benchmark test and Far Drive 2?
Nadisco crysis may not have been an amazing game without the graphics. But it still had a lot more creativity then you get with most console games.
lol far drive 2! Funny cause it's true
Boring Call of Duty is Linear too..
Crysis was linear but u could approach the situations in so many different ways that it didn't feel like it. I love the game personally cuz the nanosuit and incredibly large maps gave me a sense of tactical freedom that actually made a difference on how the game plays.....as far as creativity how many fps's can u think of where u can punch ppl through buildings or Punch a jeep into submission or grab a soldier toss him in the air and shoot him with shotgun...and that's just strength mode
But your dealing with dumb ass PS3 Fantards, Who think cause a game is exclusive to PS3 that it automaticaly is better than everything else. Nadisco is a moron, period. Crysis has way more going on than killzone. I just don't see how you can say Crysis is boring but KZ isn't, the whole game is walk through tiny corridor hide behind box. Killzone relies on it's graphics way more than crysis, since the gameplay is super linear and generic. Not to mention you can't blow up the environments and have to play the game one way. But that's next Gen to these people. LOL
All shooters are linear. Even Halflife and Halo. They just had wider corridors. And when they're not, like Turok 2 you can get massive amounts of backtraking. I'd rather they keep the action flowing at a decent pace. It is a shooter after all, not a mystery adventure. Anyway, I found in Killzone 2 even though you were always trying to get to one spot, there were often 2 or even 3 ways to get there, and depending on the resistance met each way had varying success. Not hugely detouring off, but a good example would be you could go through a warehouse, around it or over the roof. These breaking paths happened quite often. FatOldMan. I stand corrected. I should have said, 98% of shooters are linear and its never been a problem before. Probably nearly all URBAN shooters are linear. And you're right, nothing wrong with just being a great game. No other shooter ever made me feel like I was right in the action like Killzone, probably since I first stormed that beach in Medal of Honour. I hate this mentality that every AAA PS3 game has to revolutionise gaming to be good.
"All shooters are linear. Even Halflife and Halo." EVEN halo? Dont use Half life (A masterpiece) and Halo (Overrated game) in the same line
your right, I don't want every FPS to revolutionize, I just want it to be good at what it does. If you people want to moan, give Activision a bell , they release the same game every year and know one seems to notice.
All shooters aren't linear; most are. Crysis and Stalker are two examples I can think of. That being said, Brandon's criticism was that the video didn't show anything innovative. Hence why the rhetoric 'Do we really need another...'. Saying that all other shooters are linear too doesn't really answer his concern. Anyways, Killzone3 seems to be more about giving a polished and cinematic experience rather than an innovative one. Nothing wrong with that. I love Half-Life, and that game is linear as hell. The trick is hiding the linearity, which Killzone does pretty well with it's backdrops. Hopefully there's more bosses and they're more challenging. I haven't had an enjoyable boss fight outside of MGS and ShadowOfTheColossus... and haven't had a challenging boss fight since Twisted Metal Black. Either I've been playing crappy games or they just don't make bosses like they used to. =/
Crysis story was still boring though.
story was so good right? LOL
Just another troll. Smells bad. GTFO.
Why does people always equate linear=bad game. Some FPS games are linear by design choice. Its like asking Uncharted 3 to be a sandbox game. Although it will be awesome, it won't be as cinematic and immersive as UC2.
Shoot 1 to 3 dudes walk forward. It's not impressive, but you'll get hammerd with disagress cause look where you are, N4g
***Do we really need another scripted sequence where we continuously shoot painfully obvious weak points on some giant monstrosity that goes down way too easily? *** Based on the popularity of games that utilize such features, it would seem that we do need another one. Not to say that I'm a huge fan of KZ3/CoD/Halo/etc., but the desire for these games kind of speaks for the desire of all the things you just put down. And, honestly, the mass majority of games are linear in design and no one seems to mind this. Even many games with "open" worlds are actually linear in the progression of the game. Whether it allows you the freedom to go left or right, in the end, more than 90% of the games out there have you reach the same point regardless of that choice.
Yes every FPS is linear, even Crysis. But this looked ridiculous. The whole video consisted of walking through a narrow area, plopping behind an object, lining up his shots with the crosshair and poking out for a perfect shot. In other cover based games there is a lot of movement. You move around trying to get a good shot. You don't have a crosshair while down in cover. This almost looks like one of those on rails FPS. Its also harder to aim with the third person cameras. Other FPS have more open environments, allow some choice and/or require a more tactical approach. In some other games the boss fights feel more dynamic. Half the fight was on a scripted aircraft. It looked just as bad ass the boss fights in Gears of War 2.
Doesn't look too bad. Can't wait for Feb!
Getting the ol' anticipation going :) Now I just need the will to put down DCUO for a while to play this :P Edit: I just noticed Rico swearing a lot, after all the people with sensitive ears complained I thought they toned it down all together. TBH I'm glad they've kept some in as it adds to the gritty image of the game... to a point anyway. Hopefully they've found a nice balance this time.
Preview Code. Can't wait to play Multiplayer.
One hell of a way to start the game.
The cutscenes seemed very awkward
It would be nice to get this as a demo on psn since everyone seems to be playing it and showing it already all over the net.
Can't wait to dive into the open beta!
this game will be great! people that say otherwise dont know what good gaming is. I played the closed MP beta it was just amazing cant wait to get my hands on this
no, what if i like Uncharted 3 but not Killzone 3. So i don't know what good gaming is?
no,its preference maybe you just dont know what a good fps is,imo
no im talking about how people were hating on Killzone 2 it should of got alot more buzz on how good it was. Uncharted is a great game as well thats why i own a playstation because of all the great games
action packed and overall better than the last time I saw it.
graphics look like shit.
^ cod fanboy detected.
who the hell are you trying to kid?
Coming in to a killzone article and dissing the graphics = bubble suicide...
Troll confirmed. I mean just look at the username 'dukenukemisyourgod'. The graphics on Duke Nukem Forever are far worse than Killzone 3. Who is this guy kidding?
NOT GOING TO SPOIL IT.
Despite it's shortcomings and even though this isn't the most impressive KZ3 vid I've seen, this game manages to kick tons of a$$. I'm very psyched for the online and I cant wait to try sniping with the Playstation Move. This may be the only console FPS I play online until Resistance 3 comes out. I hope you can mute/turn down the radio/walkie talkie volume in SP though :x
You could in KZ2, its called the 'Speech' setting
Feb 22nd is my new BDay. I will be reborn.
Well they have put in a lot more work into integrating the action with the cut scenes/story so thats a good sign. That plus the Move integration should make the single player a chunk better this time around.
It look great in terms of visuals but the visuals did not match the sound. That is, the sound was suggesting all hell was breaking lose but yet the visuals were absent of action. A handful of ground soldiers. For me I'm still waiting for that epic large scale battle that makes you feel like its one army against another.
Can't wait to get this game in February!
Sorry GT5, you have been a great companion these last few months.
Kz3 > Crysis
looks awesome!! I'm so stoked for this in 3D!!!!!
Linear isn't always a bad thing. Plus, why do people that play games early suck at gaming ?
This is the most technically advanced, graphically astounding, incredibly hardcore FPS I have witnessed on a console full stop! I am completely sold on this...my only regret is being fixated to the the video footage which appears to be a whole level. I kinda ruined it for myself since I know what will happen on this level...but it was too alluring to switch off! Welcome to the next level....PS4 I salute you, but your time has not come. :))
OMFG! The graphics! XD Such an unfathomable amount of details!!!! The particles, the lighting, the animations... Gosh! RIP COD, Halo, & Crysis, THIS is the new top dog in the FPS genre! Good luck to anybody trying to beat that!
Holy shit that was epic specially when hes like "all units open fire" at 15:48 and they start firing rocket launchers
Guys...come on, please stop arguing without using logic to support your arguement. For those that do, cudo's, for those that don't, son I am dissapoint. Yes this looks great, but none of you know the trechary commited in the 2nd game unless you've played Killzone 1 and the psp version. They killed off Templar, the main fucking character. Thats bad enough for me to stop playing killzone 3, and whilst I'll still rent it for some good linear gameplay, it still can't match the graphical power of Crysis 2, or even crysis 1 for that matter. It might look better than crysis 2 on the ps3, cause it's crytechs first game on the consoles, but even thats yet to be seen. And if any of you have seen the best of the best footage of crysis 1 and know the the technical specs, then you know that crysis is in fact graphically better, and theres no arguing with that because its the truth. Those who do argue simply don't comprehend all the technincal data and detail that does into it all because you ps3 gamers not pc gamers. And theres nothing wrong with that, and I'm not saying that killzone 3 in not gonna be a good game, its everyones personal opinion. Cudo's to Valve for trying to bridge the gap between ps3 and pc gamers. -editor at www.hookedgamers.com
