Conclusion: Killzone 3 may not end up on anyone’s “Best Game of 2011″ list, but this game is still a lot of fun to play, and a worthwhile FPS for anyone remotely into shooters. The campaign is very solid, and though the multiplayer is nothing extraordinary, it’s fun. Killzone 3 is an excellent game, and I highly recommend that you get this game and try it out, especially if you’ve never played a Killzone game before.
Excerpt: A few of my fondest modern gaming memories come from Killzone on the PS2 and Killzone 2 on the PS3. In the first Killzone, my team of soldiers and I had just blasted our way through dozens of terrifying Helghast soldiers to emerge in an open field littered with blooming trees and falling flowers.
Conclusion: I wish I could give the game a higher mark but it just felt too slim on the content to justify it. It’s a good game, but I doubt it’s worth $60 unless you wait for the inevitable game of the year edition with a lot of the stuff that feels missing right now will probably have.
Summary: Killzone 3 is a solid entry into the series, but its grating character progression and minor glitches give it a more unpolished feel than its predecessor. While the improved pacing and expanded multiplayer are definitely positive changes, they aren’t enough to elevate the package above what was delivered with Killzone 2 .
Conclusion: The Killzone franchise is certainly a popular one for Sony, despite the problematic issues that plagued the original on the Playstation 2 in 2004. Sony and Guerrilla Games stepped up their game with the release of on the Playstation 3 in 2009, much to the happiness of PS3 owners. The critical reception of the sequel was overwhelmingly positive and the sales broke a million copies in less than 60 days.
Conclusion: Killzone 3 will justify gamer’s decisions to invest in the Move controllers and will offer satisfying gameplay with or without the motion control for a very long time. Invest with confidence.
Pros: Running through campaign will be briefly lived, but it’s a hell of a ride for the amount of time it lasts. Multiplayer is best enjoyed through objective based modes, and becomes increasingly enjoyable.
Cons: Short campaign mode, minor glitches pop up from time to time, and online play takes patience to enjoy.
