Jacksonville Review: 'Killzone 3' packed with intense action, but lacks strong storyline

Jacksonville: Sometimes the view is better from up close. "Killzone 3" offers a grunts-eye perspective of your average alternative-universe global conflict, the continuing story of a war between the Nazi-like Helghast and the Allied Forces of the ISA. (Killzone 3, PS3) 3/4

Gotta love it -- Halo, junk story, tame on screen action in comparison and it's solid gold pretzles.

Average idiot reviewer "Does Halo have a story? It has one, but who wants to play that -- Online deathmatches is where we write our reviews from"

Average idiot reviewer "Is Killzone 3 not the best looking, most intense, most fluid and diverse FPS on the market, offering up everything the console gamer could ever want? Sure it does -- But the story man. It's story is just so weak. It's really the only thing we can fault it for, and since everything else in the game is a 10, the story has to bring the score down to about a 7.
P.S. We're not fanboys"

I hate this industry.

The story is pretty good imo, a lot better than A LOT of games, and much better than Killzone 2. What are people expecting? Characters in KZ3 on the Helghast side are quite good (which is the main story focus).

Im loving what I've played so far, and I think the story is pretty good myself. I wasn't expecting academy award winning stuff here just something to keep me interested.

I dunno what these reviewers are on about I actually quite liked the story, the Helghast leaders make great characters and I especially liked Stahl

This is what I've been thinking all week. I though the cutscenes were all extremely entertaining, whether they were action-movie like scenes or the power struggles of the Helghast leaders, there was a lot of cool stuff to watch and some good voice acting from the Helghan leaders and I thought the actors who played Narville and Sev were also quite good.

me too, guys! i really enjoyed the story. i loved the biplay between stahl and orlock.

i've also got this crazy notion that visari is STILL alive.......do you guys think stahl got off that ship? and am i the only one whos wondering what they were doing with POW bodyparts in the stahl weapons facility?

I dont see reviewers putting down call of duty because of its horrible story line and broken multiplayer. Just shows how unfair reviewers can be.

just finished KZ3 using Move. i think it's epic. the story may not be much to talk about but there are many wow moments. the chaos is so great. i wonder if i can pick up another war game which has as much as chaos going on in screen on console. great game. thank u GG.

You got a love a review when they complain about the story yet fail to remember that most people care more about the online in this game which I find amazing

Has anyone else had this problem? I can't finish the story mode because it's a huge let down. Sometimes during cut scenes the audio wont finish completely. I'm on the part where you're crossing the bridge with the xo leading and it just keeps repeating the dialog over and over again when they get attacked. The MP portion works fine but the audio is all jacked up! Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks.

Edit: I found this on the kz3 web page
