Killzone 3 raises the bar with new weapons, vehicles, and environments, including stereoscopic 3D and PlayStation Move compatibility. (Official Killzone 3 press release).
It's kinda annoying that the special edition people get double xp in the first 24 hours of gameplay. It should be double XP for everyone who buys the game in the first week, that way more people would buy the game at launch!
i have the game, and this may be nitpicking a little, but why did they remove Custom Soundtracks.....I loved killing some helgast or isa to my own music.....Battle of Heroes by John Williams goes so well to Killzone action.
Maybe it slowed the game down or something? I dunno, I don't think they'd take it out for no reason. The beta was really good, much much better than KZ2 multiplayer imo.
That is a little disappointing. I would play to Willie D's "Die Muthafucka Die Muthafucka Die".
Glad to say when i get KZ3 i won't need another FPS until R3 and BF3. It's the revenge of the sequels lol.
I liked having custom soundtracks also why remove it GG :(
Freeing up some power, maybe?
I'm glad I've have things like a stereo and an ipod.
What a stupid labeled article. Who would not know that Killzone 3 was PS3 only?
Blind 360 fanboys?
Yeah it is pure flamebait
I agree with the article.
"Killzone 3, the Definitive Sci-Fi Shooter Available Exclusively On the PS3" - ps3center.net When Killzone gets vehicles, bigger fighting environments, more variety of weapons and destructable environments, Killzone will just become a dieing franchise known ONLY for it's graphics. Just look at Battlefield coming out. Amazing graphics, huge maps, vehicles and destructible environments. It was even in Battlefield BC 1 and BC 2. Both older titles than KZ 3. Look at Halo 3 and Halo Reach. Both older games and have tons of options with vehicles, huge maps weapons and game types along with Forge and the ability to stat track and share files. People want more in their games and are expecting it at this stage of gaming. Killzone 3 isn't offering anything outside of what KZ2 did. Graphics alone is not what is going to get sales or great reviews. GT5 is sitting at an 86 meta and Killzone 3 is sitting at an 85 meta. Both games show significant lower scores than their predecessors simply because they are not offering anything outside of what is currently on the market. As for the COD argument, the COD franchise still offers gameplay features outside of what Killzone is offering. Ie. calling in gunships, dropping missile's, remote controlled cars and fun new multiplayer game types.
you are right there really is no big change from kz2,i was expecting a huge change but the only thing that changed were the controls,they do feel alot better i was really hyped for kz3 until i got the beta hell the melee attacks are really fun and satisfying but it just didn't do it for me,i wasn't big into kz2 aswell.bfbc2 was more enjoyable and the most enjoyable mp i have played in a while and im looking for battlefield 3 to surpass BFBC2 in every way as promised by EA,now i don't care for meta my self as outhers do and kz3 will be good to people who like it i was geting it for the mp and i didn't like the mp i did well on it tho but i had issues with it. "When Killzone gets vehicles, bigger fighting environments, more variety of weapons and destructable environments" thats what i wanted as well and they even removed in game music and servers which was the best thing about kz2 mp imo i wanted them to add things not remove things and give us the same game almost -_- sure it's an improvement but it's not ground breaking.
I'm sorry but I don't entirely agree with you. While Killzone *might* not offer everything else that other games offer, it does innovate with an interesting multiplayer objective based mode - different from anything else I've seen in past games. Maybe the *definitive* in the article headline is misleading (hey, what's new? It's N4G and flamebait headlines always do the job), but I feel that your comment undervalues what KZ3 has to offer.
"it does innovate with an interesting multiplayer objective based mode - different from anything else I've seen in past games." - It's still just objective based. Either kill the target plant the bomb or capture the propaganda speaker. It's all the same gameplay except a different title. The only "innovative" aspect of it is that it groups the objectives into 1 single game. That's hardly innovative. "I feel that your comment undervalues what KZ3 has to offer." - That is the issue. "Value". With everything that games like Battlefield and Halo are giving feature wise and gameplay wise, how can KZ3 have any "value"? Killzone is ONLY known for its graphics. That's it. Graphics alone do not warrant the game to be a $60 price tag when competing games in the same genre are offering so much more content at the same price...cheaper now that they have been on the market for so long. Killzone 3 isn't bringing anything to the table to go up against titles like Battlefield, CoD or Halo other than graphics. The single player campaign is now even shorter than KZ2's. Having offline co-op should have resulted in a longer campaign knowing that 2 people will go through the campaign in 1/2 the time. The game is crammed with cut scene after cut scene now. I think you are giving too much credit to Killzone 3. It's a great looking game that falls extremely short in the gameplay/content department.
