So much better than 3

I started this the day after I finished 3 and played it through start to finish in a day.

It's really amazing how much better this game is in every regard over it's predecessor and not just in the ways you would expect, of course it looks better but it also plays much better with very little whack a mole type cover shooting and much more varied combat scenarios. The owl is a great tool that makes this game much more interesting to play. Once again great weapon variety.

The story is better than 3, how could it not be, and the character's where so much better, zero dudebro crap that made 3 such a joke.

The audio seemed really buggy in this game and that may be my only complaint, there were more than a few time a character was speaking to me and it was barely audible then an enemy would be talking from the other side of the room and it would sound crystal clear, very strange and not something I've ever experienced before.

I thought the ending was great.

    With a new generation of consoles comes higher expectations. We want improved graphics, advanced artificial intelligence, and new, inventive gameplay mechanics. We want a better version of what came before.Unfortunately, Killzone: Shadow Fall actually lags behind previous entries in the franchise. With only its graphical fidelity to boast of, this PS4 exclusive offers little else to the new console owner than a dull, frustrating shooter steeped in generic sci-fi writing.Following the events of K...
