Oh noes, this guy says the load times are fast, but there were reviewers complaining about long load times.


Anyone happen to know when this will be downloadable for non-PS+ members?

If you have Hong Kong PSN for some reason you can download right now.

Without PSN+ ofcourse.

Yep, I created a Hong Kong account last night and got it. Shootouts with the Helghast are glorious. The demo started out a tad slow, but by about half way through the game starts to shine. Brutal AI that is sharp as a tack and war torn chaos going on all around you. Say what you will about this game, but there is not another shooter like it in my book.

As I mentioned in a previous article, It was too easy, even on Elite.

Edit: Rather than just disagreeing, tell me why? Seriously, if I had a screecapture device I would record myself playing it. It was eaasy.

I'd take an off screen camera video if you can do that. We know how good it looks, so a loss of visual clarity isn't an issue. It wasn't easy for me on Elite. I'm interested in getting better, and maybe you can help me.

Alright, I can do that, but the quality will just be okay since I'll use my pocket camera. I might get a chance to do it tonight, but I can't guarantee. I use the alternate control scheme with 20% X-Y axis sensitivity. See, I like people to respond, it's really not hard.

the demo was so good !!! I loved the ending
and oh my god I can't hate rico or sev anymore !! they are fucking badasses and so cool now O__O the cutscenes and the dialogs are strong this time and more enjoyable

wooow everything I hate about kz2 have been actully fixed
thanks GG

but there something I am not sure about
Have they downgraded the killanimation ??? in kz2 I think there was more animation , depth and every bullet you shot you can see a strong reaction ,

I feel its weaker this time around with kz3

Biggest2809d ago

It think the killing shot is the same. For headshot you still get the same effect as from Killzone 2 (helmets popping off or exaggerated neck snap when the bullet is clean through the mask). They were always sponges that didn't really react violently until the actual killing bullet.

yaz2882809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

I don't think you have played enough of killzone 2 Single Player ,

when you shoot their arm for example they will react and see the arm have been bushed back and then they start showing some pain , or when you shoot there face they will cry in pain until you give the final blow, in kz3 they just stand there until they die , not all the time though

Thats just an example
and I am still testing the demo to confirm

the strongest thing about kz and what I love the most about the game is the animation its feel way realistic, beautiful and strong depth to it than any other fps out there
kz2 was one of my Favorite games this gen , I played it's sp like hell ,

Biggest2809d ago

I'm pretty sure that I did, bro. The extreme reactions only happen on death. They react to single bullets, but are almost always still in position to recover. They show enough pain to say they were hit, but not incapacitated. That's all I'm saying.

yaz2882809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

I just had another run in the demo , and oh boy
the game is fucking beautiful !!

woooooooow I almost didn't notice

just forget what I said man ^^ its as you said
