HBG Review: Killzone 3

The Killzone series is back for its third installment, and continues to follow the ongoing war between the Human ISA and the British sounding, Nazi-like Helghast. Scholar Vesari has been murdered at the hands of the ISA, and as a result the Helghast aren’t too happy. Their overall objective is to destroy humanity and bring those responsible for their leader’s death to justice. The Helghast will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.

I'm surprised the Move support is getting a thumbs up. I would have thought that it would have been a weak link. Sounds good over all though.

Wow, it seems as if the game will be better then I expected. After playing both the closed and open multiplayer betas I wasn't too impressed. But, I guess the finished product will be substantially better!
Nice review :)

Nice review, looks like you covered all the bases without spoiling any part of the story. It's nice to hear that the story draws you in as a player. I'm also surprised that the Move support has a good feel to it, I'll have to give that a try.

Killzone 3 is war on a disk.

Memo-Xen x31004897d ago

The reviews are definitely a mixed bag.

LiViNgLeGaCY4897d ago

Eh, not really, unless 8-10 is a mixed bag.

BrianG4897d ago

I think hes referring to the 5 or so 7's which called out the single player for being flawed.

But either way, the majority are 8 to 10's, with more 8's and 9's. So it should be a solid title.

KZ2 was solid, and that got quite a few 7's and even under that.

Up there with the top tier in the industry. Love Guerrilla Games - Horizon Burning Shores is simply STUNNING.

1Victor437d ago

Can’t wait for their next franchise

SullysCigar437d ago

Same. They nailed it with Horizon. The trouble is I also want a new Killzone! Can't I just have it all?!

jznrpg437d ago

I’m with you I want Horizon 3 , Killzone and new IPs

badz149436d ago

I have yet to play Burning Shores as I just started Forbidden West (bought at launch, just unwrapped last weekend LOL) and playing on PS5.

man...I still can't believe the graphics especially now I'm playing it on my LG OLED. that graphics and with stable performance backing it up, GG really is the master of their craft!

Vengeance1138437d ago

32.7M sales in the Horizon franchise! With 8.4M coming from Forbidden West alone! Truly a hugely successful game and franchise as a whole. Looking forward to Horizon III

Shane Kim437d ago

That's kind of a huge drop though. It's only been two games.

VersusDMC437d ago

One year after realease HZD sold 7.6 million.


So not a drop off.

Unless you're saying a HFW should have sold as much now as HZD sold in 5 years?

Vengeance1138437d ago

It's been 3 games, this includes Call of the Mountain. Also no, its a great improvement over HZD.

solideagle437d ago

lol you are comparing:

HZD: 28 February 2017 - May 2023 (6 years+)

HFW: 18 February 2022 - May 2023 (1 year+)

We will see if it surpass original number.

Phoenix76437d ago

@shane, 2 full main games, 2 DLC add ons, 1 VR spin off game, oh and a an official LEGO set.
Not too bad for an ip that's only been on market for 6 years

Wow, very impressive. I didn't know the numbers were so high for Forbidden West. Still playing through it myself

Yooo, when I first saw that Killzone 1 footage at E3, my friends my brothers and I were like, Holy shit! When it came out, it didn't look exactly like it, but we sunk so many hours into 1 & 2.

I even liked Killzone: SF, it was a spectacle to look at, and even today it looks good. I hope they make a new one. Can you imagine how that will look, and they can get some modern FPS pointers from Bungie.

blacktiger437d ago

thank you fps lover, I'm with you

talocaca437d ago

Such a wonderful studio. They deserve all their success.

The Decima Engine is absolute 🔥 I'm just mad they have abandoned Killzone.

OzzY-waZZy437d ago (Edited 437d ago )

Kinda wish they move on from Horizon tbh.

potatoseal437d ago

They are probably working on mutiple projects. One of them is Horizon 3, but another is a multiplaer game and probably somehting else.
