All i ask for is.
1.KZ2 gameplay
2.KZ2 lobby matchmaking
3.Don't cater to the little 12 year olds.

KwietStorm1907d ago

Nothing more to see here. Keep it moving everyone.

pixelsword1907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )


Pretty much.

Except I wanna play as the heavy, I want the regular soldier back, and I want the regular soldier to exclusively be able to take cover for MP games.

sikbeta1907d ago

Hmmm... thought next in the franchise would be VitaZone :P

EeJLP-1907d ago

KZ2 (and 3) MP seemed to 'cater to the little 12 year olds' already, so I don't get your point. Turrets killing for you, air support killing for you, 1hit bodyshot sniper while being invisible, enemies shown as teammates, running around at 80mph, etc.

KZ2 matchmaking? Yea, because custom Ranked boosting lobbies are a good thing. /s

awesomeperson1907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )


I don't agree the KZ2 caters to the little 12 year olds, while there are turrets and air support, these were easily combated.

Each class offered different advantages and disadvantages that had to be weighed up, and the sniper wasn't as huge of a deal in KZ2 and it was in KZ3 (that was a tad overpowered, especially when given an assault rifle).

I thought KZ2 was A LOT of fun, and the multiplayer generally had a steeper learning curve and was harder to truly get good at than many other multiplayer games at the time on the PS3.

KZ3 certainly felt like an easier learning curve, and was easier to master in general.

Kleptic1907d ago


one of the toughest ribbons in the game was getting the 5 turret kills in a round or whatever...those things where worthless in KZ2...

KZ2 DEFINITELY had some balls, and went against the grain of most modern competitive multiplayer did an incredible job of balancing team based tactics, while still allowing you to be very effective on your own...Where in CoD, you don't EVER need a team mate...and BF3 random team mates will often ruin the experience...KZ2 fell safely in the middle, something no other title has done this generation was straight forward with a limited hud, no flashing points every single time you did big old 'you killed XXXXXX' after every kill...It was a shooter that didn't cater to the ADHD crowd that plagues multiplayer games any more...and it was written off quickly because of that...

the boosting lobbies was a little lame, but that was an area that the game was behind in anyway... persistence was entirely lacking, you could hit max rank in just a few hours (they did patch in 3 extra ranks, but they were completely arbitrary) the handgun boosting lobbies, etc, didn't really accomplish anything but some trophies...

the sniper rifle, even being a OHK on everything...was still ok hip fire accuracy, no prone, and some pretty wonky aiming mechanics with it...didn't make snipers half the problem they are in other titles...even the big bad 'invisible' thing was limited to only when standing perfectly still, when not firing, and when someone hadn't centered you on screen to highlight your position...

KZ3...that sucked it turned back on everything that made kz2 great to many of us...and i didn't even bother with it...

"one of the toughest ribbons in the game was getting the 5 turret kills in a round or whatever...those things where worthless in KZ2"

It could be hard, depending where you put them, who you're playing, and how long the match is. But it's not too hard if you consider matches can be hours long. It could be 7? rounds in a match and up to 30 minutes each. Not too hard to get 5 in two-three and a half hours. Also not too hard if you have them near objectives the enemy will likely be distracted by. They also can also randomly headshot the shi out of people sometimes.

I agree with what you said about the points popping up all over the place wasn't a good addition in 3.

Overall I still don't consider either KZ good or competitive at all. Obviously some will master the gameplay over others, but that doesn't necessarily make them good. It just makes them better at being noobs than others. 1hit body shots do not equal good. Neither does the CPU [turrets & air support] killing, assisting kills, distracting, giving up your position, slowing enemies and wasting their ammo. Neither does being invisible or running around at 5-10x normal speed. Etc.

agree with ken22. but to play as the helgast would be +!

Regent_of_the_Mask1907d ago

KZ2 gameplay? No thanks. I'd rather have KZ3 gameplay as the controls didn't feel so stiff and the cover system was much more fluid.

cpayne931907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

Killzone 3 had less input lag, which was good, but the guns felt less weighty and there seemed to be less difference in recoil. I agree on the cover system though.

Edit: @Frankfurt below, metacritic and my love of both Resistance and Killzone says otherwise.

Outside_ofthe_Box1907d ago

KZ3's controls were good as it eliminated the input lag, but other than that KZ2's gameplay was better.

I want KZ3's controls with KZ2's gunplay. That will be perfect imo.

k-dillinger1907d ago


me and you both kz2 was damn near unplayable online with those controls if ya'll wanna play that go hop on kz2

RonRico1907d ago

they had to release a patch for KZ2 because of the controls. Loved that game but come on, the controles were kinda lacking.

"Duty, Obedience, and Loyalty" are the three virtues of the Helghast Triad. Our source says, these lines were written for a woman, who has ties to a Helghan Autarch. We’re speculating here, but the speaker might be Aurarch Visari’s daughter. Our source wouldn’t comment if this is tied to the upcoming Killzone game for PlayStation Vita.

How do they know these things?

What kind of witchcraft is this?

Monolith1907d ago

Hilariousness I tell you!

NarooN1907d ago

I've known that since 2004. Talking with the dev team who used to post on the official forums since 2005, and reading the backstory on the website, you could learn a lot.

GraveLord1907d ago

If KZ3 catered to the 12-year olds, it would have sold more.

Outside_ofthe_Box1907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

No. It did cater to 12-year olds. They just bought Call of Duty instead. Which is why there is no point in trying to cater to the CoD crowd. Just make your own game.

pixelsword1907d ago

@ outside_ofthe_box

You got that right:

Star Wars VI-IV was it's own movie

Episode I catered to the kids, which was like being raped by lobsters.

Episode II-III tried to catered to everyone, which is why it also could not stand with a movie twenty years older than itself.

CoD is the Jar-Jar of gaming.

RonRico1907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

2 advanced for 12yr olds

Eyeco1907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

im gonna ask for 3 things

1. FEATURES for god sake give us some content, Killzone 2-3 were just the complete barebones of FPS if your trying to compete with halo , BF and cod as the king of fps give the gamer a cd jam packed with FEATURES e.g. veichals in multiplayer, survival modes, more maps cinema mode, i know MW3 is an abortion of a game but damn it gives you your moneys worth .

2. A decent story , with good writing thats at least 8 hours Killzone 2-3 could be beat in one sitting, allot of people dont know about this but Killzone 1 actually had a pretty decent story and the campaign was pretty good to, with some excellent level design and it lasted a decent 8 hours with allot of replay value.

3. KZ2 looking back was a pretty great game the problems that i had with it , was it didnt know wether it was a tactical shooter or a lame cod arcade shooter, i think if guerilla games focused on a more tactical game it could really stand out among shooters especially with its hard sci-fi setting.
Killzone 3 went for the shallow cod arcade gameplay, in fact Killzone 3 just felt like a rip off from COD e.g. the stealth missions made me lool they just screamed COD 4

AdmiralSnake1907d ago

Agreed, Killzone never had much features, which is indeed SAD.

Like how the hell all maps isn't playable in GW mode ? It's so stupid, which is why I never bought it sad to say, and KZ2 is one of my fav games of this generation.

Sad to say I skip KZ3, might buy KZ4 if it stays true to the Killzone 2 GP, but do enhance their multiplayer features.

Thatguy-3101907d ago

IMO they need better acting. Killzone 3 acting was disappointing IMO.

Slugg3r1907d ago

Voice acting was done by very good actors, atleast when it comes to bad guys. It is the writing that really needs improvement.

j-blaze1907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

and better characters, i mean i don't want this guy to be part in this game 一_一
....instead i want Jammer to have a bigger role this time.

also, i think Sony should stop waste their money on shooters since CoD series does it all and sells high on their console, i really want them to give us a proper AAA RPG or a survival horror game "oh no, TLoU is not a survival horror, confirmed by ND"

showtimefolks1907d ago

you know killzone and resistance 2 were the only online fps i played and since than i have not played anything else. I would buy KZ4 day on but they don't need to cater to COD fans and be loyal to your KZ fans who supported KZ2 and KZ3

MrMister1907d ago

Do we need another 1st person shooter? I own Killzone already, but do we need a 4th one this soon? I'm not sick of action games, i'm just sick of 1st person. I own so many FPS's that the thought of buying another one makes me sick. I wish they would use the talent at Guerilla to make a new IP with a different way of playing.

Games4M - Rob1907d ago

I need a fourth one to try and help me get over how shit the 3rd one was.

Gamer30001907d ago

Sh1t!! sony can't you keep a secret till E3 ??!!
anyway can't wait for KZ4

DeadlyFire1907d ago

Noone can keep a big secret. Someone hears it and runs instantly to the internet.

ritsuka6661907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

Yeha, Killzone 3 is one bigest disapointg compared Killzone 2 =/

tigertron1907d ago

Basically, KZ2 for the Vita.

Killzone 2 is by far the best in the series in terms of gameplay, multiplayer, graphics. Everything really, except mechs.

KwietStorm1906d ago

Why is it that I agreed with you, but I get all the disagrees..

Nes_Daze1903d ago

Yes, don't cater to the Call of duty fans...please.

It's probably the Vita version, set to be shown at E3.

LOL_WUT1907d ago

This pretty much its going to be a Killzone game for the Vita, KZ4 should be a PS4 title.

F7U121907d ago (Edited 1907d ago )

Hoping for KZ4 on the PS4 at 1080p with a solid 60FPS.

pixelsword1907d ago

Hoping for KZ4 on the PS3 at 1080p with a solid 60FPS.

STONEY41907d ago

Hoping for KZ4 on the PS2 at 1080p with a solid 60FPS.

DarkVegaShadow1907d ago

Hoping for KZ4 on the ps1 at 4k with a solid 120FPS

NewVegasTroop1907d ago

Hoping for KZ4 on the atari 2600 at 1080p with a solid 60FPS.

surely someone was going to ruin it sooner or later xD

NarooN1907d ago

Hoping for KZ4 on the Pocketstation at 1080p with a solid 60FPS.

(Yeah, I went there.)

Hoping for KZ4 with its full glory on the friggin Xbox 360!

DeadlyFire1907d ago

KZ4 next gen teaser like KILLZONE 2 next-gen teaser only more impressive than that. :P

My hope anyway. IF they do that though they will need to put BC in first few waves of PS4 since they just announced a few PS3 titles for next year.

neutralgamer191907d ago

Ken 22 i agree Kz2 was so much better in so many respects. Kz3 felt so arcady and generic. So much so that i probably played triple the time on mp on kz2, then i did on kz3.

Whitefeather1907d ago

Can never have enough Killzone.
