Killzone 3 Review - ZTGD

ZeroTolerance Writes: Let’s not beat around the bush here. I was not a fan of the first two Killzone titles. Sure, part two had some truly amazing multi-player that PS3 gamers are still enjoying, but the campaign was a snooze fest, in my personal opinion. That has all changed with Guerilla Games’s latest entry in the franchise. It does appear that the third time is the charm. Killzone 3 now sports a complete package: jaw-dropping visuals, a solid online component and a campaign that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Even if you have not been a fan of the series to date, KZ3 is easily one of the best FPS experiences I have had in quite some time, and I highly recommend it.

The story is too old to be commented.

Great review from a great site!

Has any one else noticed the horrible spawn camping in operations?

Yes. I played the beta today, it was fun but I haven't been terribly impressed with it so far. Controls feel a lot better, more in line with what I'm comfortable with (a la BC2). Graphics are fairly good, but I can't see why anyone would say it's THE best on consoles, UC2 still looks better IMO , but it is just one map so I'll wait and see. It has some cool ideas, but I'm going to stick with Bad Company 2 for now (on PC).

Sorry, meant to agree but hit the wrong button. No wonder I suck at KZ 3 :p

Never had any spawn camping ^^

Nope...But what i have noticed is that every class you can pick from in MP is balanced and i don't feel like one class tops all the others...i love that everyone has some sort of purpose and role! =D

KZ's campaign was not a snooze fest by any means. KZ3 is the definitive fps this gen. Forget about the campaign, its all about the multiplayer and from playing the beta, I can tell you it is awesome!

Honestly, Killzone 2's multiplayer was amazing. I enjoyed every hour I put into it, but the single player game made me want to rip my hair out. It was boring, monotonous, and difficult. Reading this review and seeing that the reviewer felt the exact same way I did about Killzone 2 and still praises Killzone 3 means something to me. Killzone 3 must be an awesome game.

While i do miss the heavy feel and recoil, KZ3 still feels very much like the KZ2 MP i spent over 300hours in. Warzone is still as amazing as ever and teamwork is still crucial for victory.

The class-based gameplay has been refined considerably and the graphics is easily the best of all console shooters.

The most compelling thing about this review was the comparison between KZ2 and KZ3. It's interesting that it counters some of the criticism about the campaign.

I, too, LOVED KZ2's multiplayer (even though I got into it late). As a rule, I typically don't like shooter multi. It's not my thing. I suck at Halo and don't do much better in Call of Duty.

For some reason KZ2's multi clicked with me. I'm looking forward to seeing if that trend continues with KZ3.

So I guess this site is ok then?

What does that mean? The writers at this site play every game they review to it's full potential. They give their honest opinions about the games and check their bias at the door.
