VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi reviews Sony's Killzone 3, played with a Move controller
move controls perfectly in KZ3 i wish all shooters have Move compatibility
yeah man im so used to using move in killzone i forget im using it. i bought it for my son thinkin it would suck in a fps. needless to say i was shocked it worked so well.
I think alot of people would be surprised when they give it a chance. It took me about 3 seconds to realise the potential, it just felt right immediately. The setting took a little tweeking but I knew right away it was going to be good. Plus, sitting in a dark room, the first time you calibrate that controller and the ball lights up red, its worth the price of admition just for that. You should have seen the stupid smile on my face, like a padawan who found his dad lightsaber.
like this awesome Move game play? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Played through the entire campaign with the Move. And the multiplayer. Come to think of it I havent used the DS3 at all except when my navicon's battery went out. Even then I still used the move with it.
i feel sorry for Helghans. i kill them easily with MOVE. it's such a fluid experience.
not for me, it gets rather anoying after a while and I much prefer playing Killzone 3 with a controler, or FragFX, and I kill Helgahns just fine. glad you are enjying the move controls though.
@Montrealien Dude we get it. You haven't fully worked with the settings on the move controller to fully suit you. Damn you're trolling hard!
Yeah, give us a break. The lady doth protest too much methinks. Move can do things you actually cant do with a DS3 and it feels so natural to me. PS Love the new Avatar NIX. Have a bubble.
Suck my Left un !!!
KZ3 is most certainly brilliant eye candy as the visuals for this game are top notch. After that though this game is nothing special. There are some odd frame rate hitches I have seen early on, and really fairly bad voice synching situation where characters are calling out dialogue a full 5 - 10 seconds before being in place where they should be saying those lines. The voice acting itself is pretty laughable at times and the Space Nazi ploty/story line is pretty horrible. Gameplay wise the game is tight enough, and the mechanics all work as you would want for a 1st person shooter. Its definitely a good game, but by no means is it GOTY material imo.
They do not represent space nazi. If you played halo reach campaign you would know that it has more frame rate issues than KZ3. Here is some KZ history Following the First Extrasolar War, the Helghan Corporation was dismantled and all of its assets seized by the UCN. Vekta, once a planetary holding of the now-defunct Helghan Corporation, was turned over to direct ISA rule, and colonists from Earth were brought in to supplement Vekta's corporate-affiliated population. However, tensions soon rose between the Earth minority and Helghan corporate majority, resulting in Helghan resistance fighters targeting and killing many Earth-loyal citizens in terrorist attacks. This forced the ISA governor to enact more and more economic sanctions and military punishments on the Helghan-affiliated colonists in retribution for the Helghan persecution of Earth-loyal colonists. In the face of brutal draconian laws and punishments, the Helghan loyalists eventually stopped their persecution of Earth-loyal colonists. By 2220, all Helghan corporate colonists had chosen voluntary relocation to planet Helghan, where years of hardship awaited them. The Helghan settlements recreated the former Helghan Authority to rule over all affairs on Helghan, but this rule was often inefficient and corrupt. Their Helghan colonists' human bodies were also mutated by the harsh environment of Helghan, resulting in most of the first generation dying only a short while after they arrived in the system. However, by 2305, future generations had evolved an increased biological resistance to the harsh atmospheric conditions, some even discarding the common breathing masks that many colonists still relied upon. In 2330, Helghan was hit by a major economic depression, allowing Scolar Visari to rise to power. In 2347 Visari staged a successful coup against the ruling Helghan Administration, which declared him the "Autarch". He created the more sophisticated Helghast ideology based on Helghan superiority. He re-established hostilities with the ISA in his bid to retake Vekta and exact revenge on the UCN, and this conflict is now known as the Second Extrasolar War. During the War, the Helghast tried to invade Vekta but the invasion failed. The ISA then launched a retaliatory invasion against Helghan and assaulted the planet by establishing a beachhead at Phyrrus in bid to conquer the capital city, detain Scolar Visari, and bring a swift end to the war. During the first hours of D-Day for the second wave, the Helghast forces set up a defensive perimeter consisting of Arc Pillars. After the Arc Pillars destroyed Avenger Convoy, which was en route to Visari Palace to capture the Autarch, the ISA decided it was best not to move forward as such an action would only result in more losses.
LOL...OMG... You just proved my point about Space Nazi's even more. Please refer to your history books... This is over simplified but the gist of it: Germany lost the first world war and was hit with steep reperations by the allied forces, basically making them pay for the costs of World War I. Germany was sent into a steep depression due to this. Adolf Hitler rose to the top in the Nazi party and promises to rebuild Germany, etc.... Germany is united once again under the flag of the Nazi party and begins conquest by invading surrounding countrys and thus begins World War 2. Germany continues to push forward invading all the way into Russia, and using terror bombing into Britain as a tactic to make Britain give up. But they are stopped in Russia and the Allied forces launch a D-Day invasion into occupied German territory slowing taking back land and march on into Germany itself to finally put an end to the World War 2 in Europe. Sound at all familiar? And please lets not forget the Nazi looking uniforms and salute the Helghast use. LOL...too funny... KZ's story line is a straight re-imagnining of our own history books.
Gurilla Games has admitted in the "Behind The Scenes" video that Killzone is largely influenced by WWII.
i read this ..all his problem with killzone3 are not move related .. Worse he only played half of teh game with move ( the other half with the dualshock ) .. i think this title is misleading ..
I feel bad sometimes playing against DS3 Players, it is an advantage with PS Move.
Not a total advantage. At close range you get ate alive sense you can't control the camera the way you want. On top of that you don't get aim assists with the Move while DS3 does. But that only makes it all the better when you own ppl lol
Actually is more easy in Close range with PS Move.
Hmm, this writer needs some lessons. This is a poorly written, poorly organized article. First of all, he barely comments on the Move functionality. He is more frustrated with the story. This is what we call a ad hominem. In all actuality he actually praises the Move controller, so the headline is misleading. And from experience, I can tell you that I preform better using the Move vs DS3 in online play. Once you get the settings down for the Move controller, you will adapt fairly quickly. To save time for yourself, mine are: 0% dz width, 40% dz height, 10% aiming sensitivity, 40% turning sensitivity. "It seems that developer Guerrilla Games, a subsidiary of Sony, tried to push Killzone 3 out too fast, just a year after the debut of the previous game, which took more than four years to develop" -- O really? I didn't know Killzone 2 came out in Feb 2010...? Fail. All in all, the Move controller does take time to get used to, just like the twin stick dualshock did when it came out. But I promise you... if you take the time to adapt, you will be preforming better with it than than standard DS3.
ps3 owners say reviews mean nothing & then good reviews are praised! wtf!! this is not goty!! But the clay graphics are awsome!! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Sharpshooter is the way to go.KZ3 with MOVE may be fun, but KZ3 with Sharpshooter is hands-down the most immersive single player FPS experience i've ever had.
Different strokes for diff folks....I took the kz3 gun back...I play with the move and nunchuck and I'm loving it it's alot easier...I still use ds3 ...to me the sharpshooter is to complicated and u gotta have ur hands in a weird angle...
i returned my sharpshooter as well i got use to using the move controller from the beta so i wasnt too intrested in getting use to the gun, but i can totally see why people prefer it, it was nice to have a gun in your hands.
In terms if Move - I must say I don't enjoy playing it as much - but I get better scores. It takes some time getting used to. Will have to get a Nav controller. One handed DS3 with Move combo sucks.
I did that with MAG, and yeah I did it for a full day. The next morning got a nav con. Sooo much better.
