My Killzone 3 Pre-Order is Going Back

From PS3Blog.net: I haven’t been able to play the KZ3 beta very much, just because I couldn’t get online. After the patch last night, however, things were a lot better. I could connect no problem, and so I played several games. I was placed in several Guerilla Warfare matches right at the end, which was frustrating. But I also got to play through several full matches of Guerrilla Warfare and Warzone.

I’m going back to the store and asking for me pre-order money back. There’s no way that this is an enjoyable game. KZ3 is more frustrating than MW2 ever was.

The story is too old to be commented.
eterry2478d ago

i do find the Infiltrator class annoying however the great quality of the game makes up for it,and Im still gonna get the game

bageara2478d ago

so he spat the dummy lol, big deal

Istanbull2478d ago (Edited 2478d ago )

Thank god you you are taking back your pre-order. One less annoying and crying n00b in the multiplayer!

Game on, Killzone 3 is great!

hamburger1232478d ago

What a N00b this guy is.

He doesnt understand how Killzone online works lol.

Abash2478d ago

Wow, does this guy think he's going to convince people to do the same just because he didnt take the time to get good?

Basically it's "Baaaaaw, Im not good at the game and Im not buying it now, do what Im doing please! >;("

Kleptic2478d ago

I love the 'by the time your cross hairs turn red its too late'...how so?...I haven't played 3 yet, but in killzone 2 everyone got pretty good at scanning your own team mates for sab's...plus they looked different (lights weren't as bright, miss matched gear, etc.)...i would think killzone 3 would be similar...

Not to mention simply paying attention...if a 'team mate' is running at you, or doing something off like running away from actual enemies...fackin' shoot him...chances are you'll get the jump on him before he opens up on you...

yeah I get it, you'll get killed by disguised guys a lot in the beginning, but you quickly learn how to deal with them...

its just a matter of paying attention...in killzone 2, a scout was never completely invisibile...on darker maps they definitely were hard to see if they were still, but your cross hairs will still turn red if you highlight them...once you learn what types of places to be looking, they won't be nearly as problematic...

blitz06232478d ago

This is the CoD effect. People think that since they're good in CoD KZ should be a piece of cake. They need to know KZ is noob proof and CoD is noob friendly

Krypto2478d ago

WAHHH WAHHH...
Man I can't wait to open up that case! Less than 2 weeks!

Actually I agree with one and two, three never had a real problem with, and four, never played that mode so can't say for sure. Maybe three is a problem in that mode.

For one, people that are cloaked are totally invisible. Most games you can still spot them while cloaked, not KZ3. So I wouldn't mind them fixing this before launch.

Two, looking like a teammate reminded me of Team Fortress 2 and actually seems worst in KZ3. I myself get paranoid as well and noticed, I'm not alone. Teammates have unloaded on me many times when the other team has a guy or two running around looking like us.

You just have to adjust your game play for it but if you get matched up with paranoid teammates, it get's a little old getting shot by your actual teammate.

BoneIdle2478d ago

He made 4 points and all of them are wrong !!

Focker4202478d ago (Edited 2478d ago )

I love this game simply because of the steep learning curve. It actually takes skill to place high on the leaderboards. There is no aim assist (thank god), and you have to learn how to deal with each type of class.

If you want a game that takes no skill, play CoD. If you want a game that takes skill, strategy, and teamwork, play Killzone 3.

edit: I also noticed in Guerilla Warfare (team deathmatch) that there were a ton of Infiltrators, but in Warzone and Operations they are VERY rare.

BloodyNapkin2478d ago

Well i am having a decent time with the beta, being this is the first day i have been able to connect to a game.

But i do find the game very easy. I have played about 15 games and i have placed first everygame. KDR of 7.39 my COD KDR is only half of that.

Prototype2478d ago

Good, one less moron to deal with.

I'll admit I'm not that good with FPS's but I at least learn to adjust enough to know not to get shot/killed, connections will get dropped, learn that word "teamwork" and the most important rule - unless needed DO NOT TALK IN THE MIC.

Doletskaya2478d ago

Confirmed. Killzone 3 multiplayer is not for people who are stupid.

BubbleSniper2477d ago

for sure! noob cant handle the KZ3-AHHHHHH so

he run to the store to cancel cuz he know he gonna get own when retail goes live.

no noob AA an jetengine running in this game

like call of dookie

tissue in, cry baby.

DarkSpawnClone2477d ago (Edited 2477d ago )

lol i love how some of you act as if there are no problems in killzone 3 and it's the best shooter ever made and every one who doesn't like it is a "COD noobie" dose that make you guys killzone noobies when you play call of duty because you don't like it ? you must suck at cod then HMMM? yeah that's right that can't be the answer can it ? you all seem really attached to your emotions and ignore logic completely,come on now just because he doesn't like the game its not the end of the world every one is entitled to there own opinion most of the comments i see here are pathetic you are so quick to defend some thing this guy isn't even attacking,opinions are like assholes everyone has one.

I gotta say I heavily agree with #Three. Spawn camping is just horrible in both killzone 2 and 3 and it really ruins the game for me that was the biggest thing i wanted fixed in killzone 3 and it wasn't.. its a good game but it's not my cup of tea so far i think i have enjoyed BFBC2 the most out of all the shooters this gen can't wait for BF3.

TheGreat_12477d ago

Most of you guys are blind fanboys, it's his opinion and experience of the game, every single one of you who said he was wrong is simply ignorant in the fact they can't separate fact from opinion.

To the "COD made you soft" etc. I'm good at COD, and I'm good at KZ3, now what? lol Yes I'm a COD player (Excluding BO and WAW) and I'll own you on COD and on KZ2 or KZ3 open beta. A matter of fact, I'm a COD player who has a better K/D ratio on KZ3, now what? You're calling people noobs for playing COD yet KZ3 has a class where you're INVISIBLE, how much more of an easy button do you need than that?

The only thing I don't like about KZ3 is still the controls, much better from 2 but still horrible for a FPS and unrealistic. Regardless of anything, the game is fun and addicting. Fanboys will be fanboys I guess lol.

DaTruth2477d ago

The saboteurs are really hard to spot! Much more so than in Killzone 2! I was getting my @$$ handed to me by them!

Still enjoyed the game though and that was my only beef! Also, never had any problem with getting into a game!

paintsville2477d ago

Oh wait....didn't playstsion magazine give that a perfect 10????? You mean it isn't perfect? You mean this overly hyped (typical of Sony) "exclusive" dat pushes da cell to da limtis isn't the bestest thing that ever came to the marketplace? Say it ain't so!

jeseth2477d ago

Look at all the trolls coming out of their cave to try and bash KZ3.

If they spent as much time and energy demanding a wide variety of high end exclusives from Xbox as they do worrying about and talking about PS3 exclusives, maybe they would have more exclusives to rave about than PS3 exclusives to troll about.

lol there were guys playing as the marksman yesterday that were indefinitely cloaked, and they'd just stand in doorways waiting for someone to come up and then just melee them =D

can't wait to play some different maps

@below, correct, but when you're running you can't aim. so you just run into them

eggbert2478d ago

I thought when your aiming reticule was on them, it made them visible to you.

Unless your running through doors backwards or something.

Pixelated_Army2478d ago

This is why the tactician's radar feature is so important to help prevent this kind of shit.

Ju2478d ago

Well, yeah. Time to be cautious then. Check out the environment before you start running. Almost like real life. Could be somebody behind every corner.

And, if a Marksman shoots the cloak is gone.

People need to adopt to how KZ plays, obviously. This is not HD CoD.

joydestroy2478d ago

not enough people play with different classes that i've seen so far. yesterday i finally started seeing more medics on the team

Focker4202478d ago

@Pixelated_Army

Exactly, I use tactition alot and you can always spot the marksman with the radar.

Bits-N-Kibbles2478d ago

Cloak can either 1. go away after a short amount of time or after your first shot. 2. go away after first shot 3. go away after first target hit/killed

HellzAssassin2477d ago

@ Focker420

The 3rd level of cloak also makes it impossible for the Tacticians scan to detect them.

But in regards to the "story" here. The game has classes for a reason. They all have their ups and downs. Tacticians can help spot Infiltrators (Which they still called 'em Sabs, so much easier to type up). But as other people had stated. You can't be a "god" in CoD and expect to come in the Killzone universe and annihilate everything. They're two different games with two different styles. Alot of people fail to understand that.

The was the worst reasoning for not buying a game i've ever heard and the N4G article description looks like it was wrote by a 12 year old, then you go to the site and he looks 25+.

However, each to there own. I disagree and will be buying the game.

P.S there's multiple ways to get around people using disguises, for a start they don't show as a green/blue dot on the map.. so if you see a character that looks like a team mate but there's no dot on the map it's an enemy. Also for invisible people if you look or aim directly in the direction the name tag appears. Also one other way to tell that includes defense against both is the fact that when either are in the crosshairs, they'll turn red.

Anywhooo

XRider2478d ago

I'm just going to Gamefly mine. If it's good I'll keep it if it's crap on to the next game.

BARF2478d ago (Edited 2478d ago )

i agree with every point this guy made. im going to still play this game either way most likely.

there are so many WTF? deaths in kz3, its actually kind of humorous. kz2 was a far better mp experience than kz3 is. all of you people yelling noob and what not are crazy. this game takes no more skill to play than cod now. so many random kills. there is no consistency at all in the kills. headshots frequently dont register. the instakill melee is also very CoD noob like. might as well use commando.

this game also suffers from the same bs as bfbc2... SNIPERS. when will you camping morons realize that you dont help the team at all???

i think the kz3 mp is good, but its not the god of fps's like you all are claiming. it has just as much crap as the next mp game. to me its pretty average.

DigitalAnalog2478d ago

There's PS3 fanboys....

360 fanboys....

and COD fanboys...

I hate COD fanboys with every bit of my skin!

-End of Line

FACTUAL evidence2477d ago

I was probably the guy that killed this pussy when i was cloaked....marksman for life! KZ3 day one! XD

frostypants2477d ago

You camp and use an invisibility cloak and call *him* a p*ssy? C'mon dude. BOOOOOOOOO!!! :-)

Jaces2477d ago

Got mad because he was killed by a cloaked player?

OUTRAGE!!

ChronoJoe2477d ago

lollll

Silly ran from a scrub that played like 2hours.

For a start, you can't be 'spawn' camped' in KZ3. Your spawn has auto-killing bots in it, and 4-6 exit points. You can be spawn trapped, kind of. If your teams real weak, but I've never had this happen.

I've had scenarios happen where the entire team run down one corridor and die over and over. However I fail to see how this is my problem, if they're playing like dumbasses, surely it's theres?

Inviisible marksmen can be annoying but they're not that effective. They're mostly snipers, and they also scramble your radar so you can tell when one of them's nearboy. Besides they can't move AT ALL whilst in that state...

Also, you can't get spawn camped at the tactical spawns. You have 3 seconds of immunity for fucks sake. If you can't kill a guy when you're immune for 3 seconds on spawning, that's your problem.

As for the 'being shot by teammates' thing. I kind of agree but it's not that much of an irritant. If you see a teammate rushing at you, you shoot him. If you don't, then you don't. Pretty simple if you ask me. I'm rarely killed by them.

hiredhelp2477d ago (Edited 2477d ago )

HMM.i smell damage article to try to hit on a ps3 exclusive here. better luck next time.this info can be got anywere. yes theres been issues.

yes last night was alot better connecting frst time most times.

however b4 hand if this dude botherd if he EVER" BOTHERD he could try several times and eventually get threw. having said that is this guy a total PR**K
ITS A BETA. notice one thing its matchmaking this is a new system they trying out on there severs. they stated they didnt expect the server over load.

people have been giveing them feedback on the official site i follow everyday. they regularly get back to the comunity with updated infomation. at least they do somert. anyways if they keep what kz2 had youll find it may not be just matchmaking servers well get but to create and search for our own lobby's. this is a beta does not represent the final code.!!

getting his money back mentioning about cod. this smells fishy.

frostypants2477d ago (Edited 2477d ago )

I agree with the author's assessment of the multiplayer. The cloaking thing is absolutely stupid and cheap, and caters to the lowest form of camping scumbag.

The disguised-as-a-friendly thing is also super aggravating.

These are all things people for the most part hated in Killzone 2. Why did they bring them back?! Hell, in Killzone 2 I don't think the invisibility cloak was this effective...they've made it even worse. These are abilities that go beyond simply augmenting player skill and into being flat-out cheap.

And why did they nerf the Tactician? How are fixed spawn points better than letting the player set them??? That was one of the coolest aspects of Killzone 2's online play.

I am going to give the single player a chance...that was my favorite part of Killzone 2, anyway. But I feel like they really dropped the ball with the multiplayer.

They made the same mistake Bungie made with Halo Reach: nothing much has really been improved beyond the graphics for the multiplayer.

miyamoto2477d ago

but overall & fun and amazing shooter! can't put it down.

Mizz_mai2477d ago

...just a baby crying,nothing to see

DanSolo2477d ago

lol I keep reading all these dumb ass "KILLZONE 3 IS BAD" articles... and I have to say I really don't get it... I have been finding the multiplayer beta to be really good and I am now gona be buying the game!

Everyone on my friendslist who has been on the beta has comments on their PSN ID saying things like "KILLZONE ROCKS!" "LOVIN' KILLZONE" and various other stuff like that!

Other than a few connection problems (hey it's a beta that's the point to iron out problems) there is absolutely nothing to complain about this game!

Now most of the time when people keep crying foul about deliberate sabotage in games reviews I think that the people whinging are just being little bitches who need to grow up... and while I still think that is true, I do think that perhaps although maybe they go over the top and look for conspiracy everywhere... maybe there is at least some actual fire under all that smoke!

So this is going back on his pre-order because he's shit at the game? I manage fine. As do hundreds of other people.

Kurisu2478d ago (Edited 2478d ago )

I see his point about the cloaking. In no way am I good at FPS, because I don't play them, but I thought I'd try out the Open Beta (when the game started my eyebrows raised at the detail of the game), and I kept getting killed by the invisible people. I had no idea that the infiltrator lets you disguise as the enemy.

EDIT @ Joni-Ice:

No, I didn't. I guess I can't trust anyone! I'll have to bare that in mind next time I play. Thanks :) I'll still probably keep getting killed by the invisibles though.

Joni-Ice2478d ago

I guess you never played KZ2. When you put the crosshair on a person it changes from green to red indicating he is the enemy.

ZombieAssassin2478d ago

Not only that they don't show up as a green dot on the little map in the corner, Whenever I see someone i just look to the corner to see if they show up as a green dot.

xAlmostPro2477d ago

lol exactly @ Joni-Ice and @ZombieAssassin ..although i made those points above and got disagree's for it :L

CaliGamer2478d ago

Hahaha, this should get approved just for the entertainment value.

You know you are doing something right when you have a massive following of haters.

Next up Resistance, InFamous and Uncharted. LOL. Expect the same treatment from the angry nerds folks, mark my words.

I love it!

BlackHairyTongue2478d ago

I guess COD does the most right out of anyone with the amount of hate on this site.

CaliGamer2477d ago

Perhaps, if you like that sort of thing. To be fair, activision does make a lot of money off the game so I guess that is a success in a way.

Belasco2477d ago

So you admit that Halo is doing something right? It has a frigging LEGION of haters.

CaliGamer2477d ago

Hahahaha. People can't take a joke. Lol, very serious people on this site. But hell, gaming is life right? hahahaha. WOW.

So, to your question. Business wise, you could say Halo was/is a success, game play, graphics, sound, story, etc. etc.? That is definitely debatable.

But if you want to take my comment literally, then I guess I can also take it a step further too.

KZ3 as well as many of the PS3 exclusives must be doing something better than 360 exclusives, evidence of this can be seen not only in the hate the games garner on a consistent basis, but also in that they have forced sites that review them to use unprecedentedly shady tactics to bring them down, sitting story being weak in KZ3 when COD and arguably the Halo series had the same problem, or too much variety in Ratchet and Clank, when Mario and other platformers share many of the same qualities.

So as to the point I made and you as well as your friend above seem to be harping on, Sony seems to be doing a lot well because the level of hate they have garnered is above and beyond the bounds of reason, even in the so called “console war”. So there you go.

To both BlackHair and Belasco, sometimes it is better to take a light hearted comment as is and leave it at that. Calm down children.

GSpartan7772478d ago (Edited 2478d ago )

1. It's a class, deal with it. I don't like to be killed by something that is not a player AKA drone. But it's part of the game. There is delay in melee if they do and that's why you have an ally, they shoot him down. Have you ever played TF2 or any class based game?

2. Unfortunately, communication is hard in pub games but than again what are you going to do? It's the point of the class. Some people easily detect infiltrators because of their unusual patterns. Even I know when one of my allies seems to magically be at some place that it's not him.

3. Welcome to the world of FPS

4. Deal with it. It's not CQC Call of Duty. Gameplay is suppose to be slow paced and big maps encourages teamwork + communication just for that reason you complain. If you want to Rambo like you would other FPS games, than face the consequences.

Focker4202478d ago

Communication is a massive part of KZ3. Knowing which spawns are available, when Infiltrators are nearby, where snipers are, where medis are, etc. A team with good communication beats a team without any day of the week.

Schism202478d ago

This is isnt even news but it will probably get approved
