Killzone: Shadow Fall Review [Pixel Gate]

Pixelgate Writes:

''Killzone: Shadow Fall has a lot of responsibility on its shoulders. It’s the biggest title in the small window of launch exclusives, and it’s also been given the job of demonstrating the power of the Playstation 4. It could arguably be the most impressive console game on the market, but is it simply a pretty face or is it a showcase for the future of first-person shooters?

The plot picks up 30 years after the events of Killzone 3, with the Vektan ISA rendering the home planet of the Helghast uninhabitable. As a means to make up for their planet’s destruction, the Helghast are invited to settle in one of Vetka’s biggest cities. The war may be over but the tensions remain, and the Helghast have not forgiven–and sure enough, tensions begin to boil over and thus begins the events of Shadow Fall.''

Love the multiplayer, could use longer cool downs on the abilities mind! some more open maps would be sweet as well.

I enjoy it but spawn camping seems the norm about 1/4 of the time (or even more often) by one side or the other.

Multiple exits don't help as much as you'd think when too many campers use turrets and drones (last long enough to actually use both if you die fast enough). A support can technically have every placeable up at once if done right. Switching class or just placing a different item should break your old stuff to keep things more even.

Granted Assault with grenade launcher (support with mine too) is pretty cheap as well. And hate Fors... Some weapons were clearly made for people that lack skill and then get abused. Fors to me is like Gears of War's original active reload sniper crap but requires even less skill.

I used it just long enough for the unlocks and moved to something else. I'm a sucker for unlocks unfortunately but just felt bad when using it even when going for headshots.

IMO, the multiplayer is crack. I was up until 4am playing it last night. Its BETTER than KZ2 IMO. The Penthouse is the new Radec Academy. Im loving the focus on objectives.

Spawn camping does occur but its up to your team to fight back.

I'd love to play a game with you and anyone else on N4G that favors performing objectives and isnt concerned about KDR.

I'm still on the SP. I'm finding it so far really good, better than my expectations. Various approaches to missions works very well with good replay value. AI is good & the environmental design is excellent.

LOGICWINS2379d ago

I think Chapters 1-7 are enjoyable and HIGHLY replayable. Its the last three Chapters that suck. Chapter 8 is annoying (you'll see what I mean when you play it). Chapter 9 ends with a "lets throw as many waves of enemies as we can at you that blindly walk into your turret fire" gunfight. Chapter 10 doesn't make any sense. Not going to spoil anything, but the very person in the game that says that they want peace ends up further fanning the flames of war.

Taken as a whole, its the most important Killzone game yet as it establishes an interesting shift in focus for future titles. Its not about Vektans vs. Helghasts anymore.

I'm still trying to platinum this idea how I'm gonna do it, some of the SP trophies are insane!

Trying to platinum all the launch games, actually. Got Resogun already, nearly done with Knack, and a few hard-ass ones left in Shadowfall.

This game is making me go after my first platinum ever. Never cared about it. But I'm really enjoying.

Check the PS4trophies channel on youtube. I did the no dying thing on easy mode. It was nice to play the story again more relaxed.
Now I only need to upgrade all abilities on the multiplayer. Freaking grinding, it will take some time!

And I'm nearly done with Knack on hard too. Played Resogun a few time, but I suck at it, don't know if I can get the trophies.

Conzul2378d ago

I got the Resogun platinum, it's not too hard. Well - it is, but not impossible. You just have to put in a lot of time towards practice. The hardest is the no-death trophy ("1D" I think it's called). Just try to play through the 5 mission span once a day until you get it.

Knack....ugh. Sorry I DO NOT like this game. It may have good old school stuff, but it also has bad old school stuff. But again, plat isn't impossible and I'm already close.

inFamous games are usually an easy platinum, so this could be fun when it gets here.
