BG - Killzone 3 Preview

I was expecting to be blown away when I sat down to play a beta version of Killzone 3. That didn’t happen because Killzone 3 suffers from a terminal case of sequelitis: Killzone 2 blew me away with its impressive visuals, highly responsive gameplay, addictive multiplayer and gritty brutality but Killzone 3 doesn’t feel like enough of a change to have the same impact. I felt the same way playing Modern Warfare 2, a game that tried to find new success in a new success.

Worst preview ever.

Bobbykotickrulesz3019d ago

This article is so cool.

I was impressed with his lack of common sense.

NecrumSlavery3019d ago

if your going to be negative and nitpick, a least be insightful, smart or funny. Don't just say OMG THIS IZ DOOMED..Then you sound like an Edge employee

" I’d rather have a meatier single-player and multiplayer with more modes, some new weapons, new enemies and more ammo than a jet-pack, dramatic cut-scenes and over-the-top knife kills"

well if you actually saw the interviews with GG you would know that they are working on a stronger single player, the multiplayer is going through a complete overhaul and there will be new modes like co-op, new weapons have been shown, and there are new enemies. Obviously your not gonna get all of that in a demo/beta .
This is a troll preview from a troll website desperate for hits, it was poorly written, im not takin this guys word for it, especialy when virtualy every single preview from credible sites has been positive.

HorsePowerr3019d ago

Well [nuff] said.

moosehound3018d ago

So what justification do you have that our site is a "troll" site my friend? Being as we are multi-format, multi-genre and in no way desperate for hits. If we were a troll site in need of hits do you honestly think Sony would of invited us to an exclusive preview evening?

Please try to be a little less offensive in the future - if you can that is.

Harry's preview was exactly that - a preview - nobody has played the game to completion. I suggest if you want that level of detail you should wait for teh reviews to hit rather than reading the previews.

Oh and FYI - there were 4 games on show at the event and it lasted 4 hours so about 30 - 40 mins was spent playing each title at least. More than enough to get a general idea of the direction of the game and the initial improvements in place.

Thanks for everyone's input and feedback.

Add brutal gamers site to the long list of troll site not ever worth visiting.

fuckoffodion3017d ago

I don't know what you are complaining about. He was very precise in his comments. Anyone outside of the Brand name gamer could see everything he discussed. Rico giving Sev an ass grab over a ledge. The whole six axis thing with the detonators. Jet packs that you can't fly around in UNLESS your the enemies. It's all based around dark/murky corridors AGAIN. They added an on rails shooting section to pick up the action from the slow FPS gameplay. The on rails section was like a ride at a theme park with you having no control. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt but it's off to a rocky start.

The trailer was worse with the obvious Naughty dog influence. You can expect twice as many pre-rendered cines now and green screen back drops that have nothing to do with gameplay, like UC 2. Sev is wearing a tee shirt in a snow storm while the Helganese ( lol ) are wearing fur coats.

Sony forcing Guerrilla to adopt 3D and the Sony Move have caused a major distraction. I suspect the game will be delayed till holiday 2011.

Here's the trailer and ( first ) E3's there if you " chose " to see it...

Here's the trailer...what happen to the looks cell shaded. Sev ( Indiana Drake ) wearing a tee shirt in a snow

DigitalRaptor3019d ago (Edited 3019d ago )

You are simply crazy. There is no other word for it.

How is it off to a rocky start when the footage that they have shown and given hands-on time with has been 98% positive?

The game will be out in Feb-March 2011 and I would be willing to bet on it.

And cel-shaded? what are you smoking?

It's clear you're desperate for this game to fail, using any excuse or wishful thinking you can. Move support hindering the game? A trailer means there will be more CG cutscenes? Who's ass did you pull that out of? You are desperate. Clutching at straws, from a no-name blogger who is in the vast minority who found it to be bad. Try harder cez, you impossible fanboy.

fooltheman3019d ago

You do know that sev in that trailer is killzone 2 model?
And then the brown and gray are part of the killzone world...
What I've seen is very asmospheric...

tinybigman3019d ago (Edited 3019d ago )

you are by far the worst fanboy on this god forsaken site. we all know you hate sony and the playstation brand so stop commenting on playstation articles ok.

here's a question for you did you ever own a PS1/PS2, or did you just go from SNES straight to xbox? you are right up there with Omega and the other nutso fanboys on this site.

on topic i'm not taking the word of this idiot writer because he obviously doesn't know what he's talking about.

thief3019d ago

"doesn’t feel like enough of a change to have the same impact"
Expect variations of the same comment on practically every PS3 exclusive, yet strangely absent for copy-paste sequels such as Halo 3/ ODST/Reach, Gears 2 or Forza 3

I was trying to understand the opinion from this user. But I stop reading when I read: ''Both Killzone 2 and 3 look brilliant but there’s not much Guerilla Games can improve upon''.

Sigh. And still, this person is comparing the sequel to MW2.

Opinion from a Pre-Alpha Stage game.

capjacksparrow3019d ago

How on earth can you say all this based on three levels? He said he wants a meatier single player with more multiplayer, how does he know he isn't getting it?

redsquad3019d ago

Three levels with the SAME environment too!

Very 'insightful' opinion piece. I'm sure he feels the snow in KZ2 hasn't been improved upon for KZ3... oh wait there WAS no snow in KZ2. There's one significant improvement right away: More diversity in settings.

CoxMulder3019d ago

Pay attention to the source..

begin to see a theme here?

It's probably from the same network:

This guys complaining about ammo shortage?! Its called pulse fire you idiot!! This isn't a spray n' pray game. It takes skill. Not just unloading as many bullets as possible. Whine, whine, whine, whine, whine. Go cry some more.

CoxMulder3019d ago

That's burst fire you're talking about, but I agree.

There are a lot of things in this article that don't sit right with me, the "jetpack 1 hit kills" for instance, is an outright lie.

Leads me to believe he never even played it himself, only glanced at the videos, and gets a lot of stuff wrong.
