Across two console generations, Sony has been valiantly trying to get the Killzone franchise mentioned in the same breath as games like Halo and Call of Duty. Though the entries in the Killzone series have never been bad, they've also never managed to really stand apart from the sea of shooters as something special. There were high hopes that Killzone 3 would finally be the game that would get the franchise the respect it deserved, but once again the game with tons of promise falls flat. Though KZ3 is a visual treat and a somewhat entertaining romp, it's just the same old song and dance we've seen dozens of times before. Nothing to see here, please move along.
