C&G Reviews Killzone 3

For a lot of PS3 shooter fans, this is the Big One. Killzone 3 may not have the mainstream awareness of Halo or Call of Duty, but for Sony, this is the flagship FPS title. It also has a lot to live up to, with its predecessor considerably upping the ante for the kind of visuals players expect on a console. Killzone 2 was, like of God of War III and Uncharted 2, the defacto showpiece for PS3 owners of what their black box could do when all cylinders were firing. Killzone 3 takes up that mantle once more with surprising ease.

I wouldn't go that far.... Now I've played alot of games in my life. and this one is pretty good.. I liked the campaign, I liked the cover system.. yeah, I suppose the story could have been longer. but I think it delivered well.

on the multiplayer side. I haven't really figured everything out yet on all the different modes.. but I do know I wish the cover system was in multiplayer... it doesn't feel right instead of running and sliding.. you just run and then sort of stop and crouch.. it kinda made me adjust the way I approached the game in multiplayer...

Yeah. Even though GG did not include the cover system in KZ2 or KZ3 probably for balancing/pacing issues, I'm still curious to see what it would've been like. The cover system was one of the main reasons I found the gameplay in the campaign so satisfying.

i wish the cover system was in multi as well.

GG should have had an option to play with or without the cover system. I for one could see myself liking it. Plus it would spice up the fps genre a bit. Instead of having prone(or whatever else) in a killzone game I'd rather opt out for a cover system for online play. Plus it could be used as great way of defending an area.

i could never label ANY game the "best ever".....there are too many great games.

Kon2733d ago

Calling a shooter best game ever? lol, you clearly didn't played many games in your life.

dalibor2733d ago

It doesn't matter of what genre the game is, a great game is a great game. There is a great game in every genre, you just have to figure out what you like. A pretty woman is a pretty woman regardless of her ethnic background (an example).

After playing it, I have to say Killzone 3 is a very good game. The single player is up and down story wise, due to some bad dialog, and a lot of jumping around from scene to scene. Overall the single player does reach a level of good, but the sad thing is the single player could have been and should have been great, if only they would have hired a professional screen writer. The budget for the game was high enough, and bringing in a screenwriter to write a good story or fixed and enhance what they already had would have made Killzone 3 a great game, because everything else is there especially multiplayer except for no online co-op campaign (ADD IT, and it's all good.).

I've played about 60 minutes of the campaign and I can already tell it's better than the previous game. It's a more ambitious campaign, more epic in set pieces and music. More human in the characters and the Helghast. It's like it's found its stride. Just like Uncharted blossomed in Uncharted 2, Killzone has blossomed in the third game. The controls are better, the game is more enjoyable to play, easier to pick up and play for people who are used to playing FPS like COD. It just gives off a better vibe than the previous game. And you can tell they've spent more money on it too, it's just got that big budget feel running through the whole thing like Uncharted 2 had
