Thunderbolt: Killzone 3 Review

Thunderbolt writes "Designers of futuristic first-person shooters are slowly running out of inspiration. It’s a sad state of affairs, and the creators of Killzone 3 know it all too clearly."

hits,hits,hits,hits....move along people nothing to see here.

If that's the case, this is the best 5/10 game I've ever played.

Killzone 3 is AWESOME and just made the list of game sites whose opinion I simply can't trust.

I mean...this"review" is rife with the cliche attacks that have been popular to aim at Killzone since the first installment. It goes on and on about KZ3's lack of creativity...and is arguably the least unique review I've seen of the game.


1)The plot is bad
2)The characters swear too much
3)It's not original
4)The characters are shallow...
5)Space Nazi's
6)It doesn't have the gameplay "weight" of KZ2
7) Blah blah blah....

This is the worst I've seen yet. The largest amalgamation I've yet seen of long ago cliche attacks.

Not only does this review say nothing new, I would say it "ticks boxes and has been too quick to shed its defining credentials."

everyone knows the reason of this article...move along people. biasness as its maximum height.

I must admit that although a score of 5 out of 10 may shock and surprise some certain fans of this franchise, we must respect their opinion and realize that they are just as much entitled to their own as we are.... Personally from my thorough play through of both the single player and multilayer campaign of this Killzone iteration, I would score it a 7 out of 10...possibly 7.5 if they can adjust the balancing issues with the sniper class and several other glaring issues...overall not an abysmal game, but also not to be confused with the top tier of other FPS that are currently on the market

@ 360degrees

There is a difference between respecting anothers right to have an opinion and respecting the opinion itself.

Thunderboltgaming can have any opinion they want and I fully support that. I am then free to agree or, as is the case with this review, think it's the worst evaluation of a game I've seen in a long time.

This opinion sucks.

HammockGames2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Wow. There's being desperate for hits, and then there's this.

Edit: @ Jiminey - well said my friend, well said. Some opinions are too ridiculous to demand respect, and this is one of them.

Achemki2828d ago

If people aren't even gonna look at the multiplayer in multiplayer-centric games like this, which Thunderbolt didn't, then don't bother reviewing the game at all. Seriously. Just call in sick.

Three quarters of the article is bitching about story. Dude ignores the online all together which the story has no impact on at all. Convenient? Or is the guy just a bias moron? I say both. Who the hell gives a final score by only reviewing half a game?!

yeah it's pretty bad to be honest. I mean by just taking graphics of the game into account you would give it at least a six. The multiplayer is wonderfully addicting and the levels are varied and beautifull to behold.

Come on everybody, fist pump with me! Hits, hits, hits, hits, hits! Everbody! Hits, hits, hits, hits, hits, hits!

Redlogic2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Really Thunderbolt, Homefront is better than Killzone 3?!? Get the he11 out here with that $hit.

DelbertGrady2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Not the SP but the MP is most likely in the same league.

@thekiddfran - I've read everywhere that it has some severe balancing issues with the infiltrator class being way overpowered. Homefront doesn't have those issues, and also has vehicles, large maps and gameplay that rewards teamwork. A different beast then that of simpleton FPS games like Killzone and COD.

thekiddfran2828d ago

How would you know?You havn't played killzone mp.

KrystofKage12828d ago

I have both and I have to say Killzone 3 has the WORST maps of any shooter I've ever played(except for the retro maps).

Homefront lacks a lot of polish, but the online gameplay is fun.

Between the two I find myself playing Homefront MP a lot more. But the two cannot really be compared in terms of gameplay. They are both in a league of their own.

Wh15ky2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )


"I've read everywhere that"...

Had to stop reading there DelbertGrady, if you don't have personal experience then your personal opinion doesn't mean squat.

I've got to say, I hate how every low rated review article for Killzone 3 gets so many comments. This is the first and last time I'm commenting in one of these childish, attention seeking bullsh*t review/articles.

5 out of 10 , huh ?

That site gave Halo 3 and Halo Reach 10's , and even Halo 3 ODST a 9 , WOW-WEE-WOW-WOW. They even gave Black Ops a 9.

They even seem to think that there are "masters of the genre" , lol. There's something wrong with this industry when a game like Killzone 3 can't even get a 7 out of 10 at least.

tonywood2828d ago

Man, I see this all the time...first America builds something up, only to later tear it all down. (That's how our society rolls!)

People hated on Bill Gates and his Xbox idea, while jocking Sony and Nintendo. (rightfully so, as they have delivered years of outstanding gaming.) NOW...somehow Sony is the Evil Empire and MS is King. Yea, being a US product is the main root of this "Homer" bias opinion.

360 games are great, but so are Sony's. Stick with your PS library and know that the exclusive numbers don't lie. I'll just leave it at that....cause I do respect all gaming options. Dumb-dumbs just want hits, so they use "console War" junk rather than good game/bad game facts.

mephish2828d ago

I know Killzone 3 isn't the best game of all time, but it sure was a fun SP Campaign. IMO much more memorable then most FPS out there. and much more intense then any FPS i can think of.

however it does have some faults... some of the vehicle scene were really dumb (mainly the Snow Saw thing.) which just felt so out of place,, just all of sudden you were in this vehicle...

as well as the very last level in the SpaceShip... was alright but kinda a lack luster end level IMO.

however i thought the story was good.. for a FPS (i like to compare FPS stories to Action films) and well this isn't the best story out there, its just as good as the vast majority of FPS and Action films.

All in all a very solid FPS, 8/10

Dogs_PinoyPOOD2825d ago

I'd give Killzone 3 a 9.5 the only bad thing was the storyline but everything is outstanding

Corrwin2828d ago

Luls, nice.

Killzone 3 - 5/10
Homefront - 6/10
Bulletstorm - 8/10

I thought they might actually be reviewing on a 1-10 scale, but it looks like they only do that when it suits them.
