Psyched for Killzone 3 but have no idea what's going on in the series? Watch our quick video wrap-up.
Oh my god jetpacks son!
I still want to play Killzone 1 eventually. Would it not be as good if I got it spoiled from watching the video?
Trust me, you were not spoiled, as an avid fan of the Killzone series, I can confidently say KZ1 was the best in the franchise. Such a good game, and all the reason way KZ2 received all the hype it did. All I got to say is secondary fire, son! Double shot gun, grenade pistol, Gatling gun with missile attachments, 3 missile mortar launchers, machine gun with shotgun accessory! Not to mention, if you had a Gameshark, you could Fire rockets as if it were a fire hose! Oh, and my personal favorite, the machine pistol, so subtle and deadly. Oh, and the ears! Dude the ears! when you play it, you will know what I'm talking about. Buy it now!
don't forget, scotty - you get to play as luger and hakha (love the helgahst pistol) and the park level alone is worth playing KZ1. it's also kick-ass the first time you meet luger!(damn, that chick kicks ass) just don't give up on it early....i think the opening level of KZ1 is the weakest link.
Scary orange eyes that make them easy to snipe. BAAM! <- that part was funny.
Killzone 1 had 2 of my favourite weapons of all time. The Machine Pistol, if we're talking about the same weapon had a silenced single shot mode, and a full auto but still accurate mode with a zoom. The second was the Helghast rifle. A huge drum mag, with a single shotty round for the secondary fire. There was nothing like emptying a drum into 5 guys that came running around a corner and then when out, that shotty blast to finish off any survivors. I cant imagine why there's no secondary fire anymore, its a big omission. I suspect its a game balancing issue for the MP portion of the game which really sh*ts me. Bring back those weapons GG. They're sorely missed.
You'll probably want to throw something at your TV to shut it up with the annoying, repetitive enemy screams in KZ1. That's all I kept thinking about when playing darkSector.. similar annoying enemy screams.
Bathyj - LOVED those weapons from KZ1. and yea- i don't understand why GG went away from the secondary fire. as i said above - that helghast pistol was badass too - it didn't pack as hard a punch as an individual round from the ISA pistol......but it was fully automatic and could really deal out some death!
Wow, you guys just reminded me of how awesome KZ1 was, too bad KZ2 didn't keep the secondary fire and the character choice. also, didn't KZ1 already have brutal melee? at least I remember that with luger I used to throw knives into peoples throat and pulling it out sideways (awesome!)
HEH that was dope!
Its "Vekta" not Vetka, game journalism my ass, ign sucks! And was it just me or did they point out the flaws in Killzone games instead of telling us what it was about.
"My people, Sons and daughters of Sony, This much we? know. The history of this generation will be written in exclusives, by crushing the armies of Microsoft, by seizing the map packs they fought to turn against us, we were fighting for our own exclusives. But if there are those who would deny us free online, refuse us our rightful place in gaming. Then we will unleash such Amazing exclusives, that morons playing xbox 360, will cry out in anguish!" :D
Wow, you're so original. I've only seen that about A THOUSAND TIMES on youtube and other sites.
it's still funny, anyways! bubbles blackboijones!
LOL no bubbles but i've gotta say it actually works XD
we still getting the open beta on feb 2nd right?
Yep, and the single player demo on Febuary 15th. Can't wait. I'm hearing good things about playing this game with Move. I can't wait to try it out.
Sorry, but that was a pretty terrible retelling of the KZ franchise. You are better of watching the cutscenes on YouTube. WTF is up with IGN's journalism lately.
you do know theyre meant to be more exaggerated and funny. if it makes you feel any better they did the same to some 360 exclusives
Why do people who have a predetermined distaste for IGN's journalism continue to read and comment in IGN articles?
Its not predetermined. We give them a fresh new chance everytime. They just keep f*%#ing it up.
their quality already hit rock bottom.. but they have this new awesome drilling machine. i just hope they know there is a molten lava at the centre of the earth. q;
^^^^ A new drilling machine.... took me a second to figure out you going with the literal comedy approach and then I laughed.
Dormin it was meant to be funny which I thought it was.
And they spelled VEKTA as VETKA..... IGN sucks.
It was annoying as hell hearing "Vetka" over and over again. Good job IGN.
Maybe they have been inhaling some of the fumes he was talking about in the video. Few more hours until the open KZ3 beta :]
killzone had a story?!
To be quite honest, I couldn't follow the story. All I knew I had to do was shoot guys with glowing orange eyes.....
you should have played KZ1 instead of hopping on the bandwagon at KZ2.
Killzone 1 & 2 had a story, but it was way better told in Killzone 1 than in Killzone 2. A kickass story at that.
The video was pretty funny, even if quite vague.
here some real killzone 3 gameplay http://theplaystationshow.c...
Dude playing the game in that video does not know how to play Killzone at all, doesnt take cover and spray shoots everything even way out in the distance, he cant even through the grenades correctly. Good vid though! but he is clearly trying to play it like Call of Duty.
i know your right i started to take cover later in the game lets get 1 thing straight theres no run and gun in this game at all
Even though this guy vaguely described Killzone's story he was also mocking it the entire time.......I HATE it when game sites do that. It's hard to explain it's almost as if the guys tone of voice is like he is telling a joke when he's suppose to be explaining the story!!!! Just proves what a child Greg Miller is........
You an idiot?
its not even greg miller you retard! ffs grow up and troll somewhere else
It says it was written by greg miller at the end. Check. It may not be narrated by him, but its his crappy material. I'm not trolling, Ilove Killzone.
sorry my mistake. I couldn't watch the whole thing as i am on dialup speeds right now but i herd the voice and thought you were trolling. mybad.
@Deathstroke "What you've just said.... Is one of the most insanely idiotic comments I have ever read. At no point, in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this web site is now dumber, for having reading it. I award you no agrees... and may God have mercy on your soul". :D
What youve just said is completely unoriginal, not humorous and irrelevant to his comment. If it was either humorous creative or original I would grant you some concessions, but as it's none of those I'll point out it's irrelevant parts. 1. Its not that insane or idiotic by N4G standards. People here often claim many ridiculous and downright false things. 2. He didn't ramble, it was one sentence. 3. It wasn't incohherent. If you can speak English then it makes perfect sense, even though the game doesn't look like CoD. 4. A large percentage of people on this website are already as dumb as is it possible to be while still being considered sentient. 5. God doesn't exist
my god can people stop trying to one-up each other for once? ego's aside please? geez
Best looking game on any console, end of history
The cursing is censored. But suicide and murder, intact. God Bless America.
yea to those telling people that killzone had a great story....please stop lying. It looks good but umm that shit was hard as hell to follow
It was a terribly put together video. That's why it may have been hard to follow.
"yea to those telling people that killzone had a great story....please stop lying." Lying? It's called an opinion.
ill have to watch this as i never played the first one.
i can watch the video on this site fine but if i were to click the watch video link i would go to the ign site and all i would see if a white box where the video would be.....i dont know what i did...im using firefox btw....
Why didn't you include Liberation?
Vetka?! VETKA?! You gotta be kidding me. Thats like saying hola instead of halo

About two minutes into that vid I knew Greg Miller had to be involved in the writing. Not funny whatsoever.
