GamerNode | Killzone 3 review

Killzone 3 is like a Michael Bay film. The high-concept premise sounds awesome, but that's where the entertainment factor pretty much stops. Things like warring transforming robots sound amazing when distilled to one sentence, but the execution in such productions amounts to endless clichés and lots and lots of people jumping away from explosions, preferably in slow motion. Killzone 3, much like a Michael Bay movie, also looks absolutely gorgeous in a clearly digitized way.

85 on metacritic...there is no WAy KZ2 is better than 3...after playing the SP demo, and the Beta...i know for sure kz3 is better. It look, feels, and also plays better...what is wrong with reviewers.

I'm sure it's just because KZ2 came out two years ago already.

Not a huge fps player, but the supposedly slower, cover-based pace of Killzone 3 appeals to me very much.

Yes, its not all about reflexes, but rather planning your approach and using cover. The cover also seems to be better designed in 3 compared to 2, based on my experience in the demo.

It really isn't that slow. It sure as hell isn't COD spastic, but it can still get pretty frantic at times. I guess if you play a sniper it could be a pretty chill FPS. Killzone is all sorts of awesomeness that way.

Yeah, slow probably isn't the right word, but it definitely feels more like a Gears of War than a Call of Duty.
