Complex: 'When the last grenade is thrown and the war is over (until Killzone 4, presumably), Killzone 3 leaves a feeling of emptiness. My heart didn't race. My jaw never dropped. Not once did I think, "Wow, I cannot believe that just happened." It is a hollow thing, pretty after a fashion but lacking purpose. Like so many Hollywood blockbusters, Killzone 3 pours on the special effects because, in the end, it doesn't have anything to say.'
