werupenstein's Killzone 3 (PlayStation 3) review

Terrible characters ruin this mediocre game

I started playing this game 4 years ago, I bought and played it specifically to experience a 3D game, I also bought the PS move setup and the sharpshooter controller to have a completely unique experience.

I played for about 2 hours and was really enjoying the spectacle of it all but I had to stop because the weight of the gun was really starting to bother me.

Flash forward to today and I'm eager to get some Killzone under my belt so I can get ready for Horizon.

Maybe I made a mistake because this game is not so good, bad story, perhaps the worst characters in a game I can think of, the shooting was fine, some very cool weapons. It's funny that I remember it being much better the first time I tried to play it.

I honestly have no idea why this franchise is revered at all and I'm stupefied that they were able to make six games in this universe. As bad as the shooting is in Uncharted, It felt better than it does in this game and that's Killzone's whole deal, the playstation shooter.

Tried multiplayer to see if the servers were still up and to my surprise I got into a game right away; a game full of people that have obviously been playing this game for a very long time, so not much fun for a new player, but still impressive.

There is no reason to play this game at this point in time.

      Front cover of Killzone 3 (US) for PlayStation 3  Killzone is a series that is near and dear to any PS3 FPS fans heart.  The series made it start on the PS2, had an offshoot game on the PSP, and finally made its way to next gen with a bang with Killzone 2.  Killzone 2 introduced most players to the gritty world of Helghan with amazing graphics and a fresh new take on FPS controls.  Can Guerilla Games up their tactics and produce another great game on the PS3 or will they suffer the next gen ...
