Summary: I had been told at the offer that I will get some promotional codes to activate Helghast edition. When I try them I get a message saying those codes are out of date since 2011. The advertising is confusing in this product, making the buyer think he will get something it is actually not getting.
Summary: Game picture and information was misleading, it shows the regular Killzone 3 game art cover but when it showed up to my house it was the Greatest hits RED box plus cover art. The game is great, they shipped it in a timely manner and the price was right. The only problem I had was the way they show the item on Amazon, there was no indication it would be a RED box, I know I know, it's only the box and cover art but to some people like myself it's important.
Summary: For $44.99, who else provides this kind of "deal of a lifetime" and especially for a "collectors edition". As soon as I saw this deal on Amazon, I thought it was too good to be true but the seller and reviews look legit and hence I immediately got it. Inside, it comes with a Helghan helmet bust which by far is the one the best looking pieces of art. It may not be as detailed as the expensive Star Wars kind but it looks alright.
Pros: This continues exactly where you left off from KZ2. They integrated more different styles of game play. The developers throws the player into the gunner seat of a few vehicles, the cockpit of a robot armor suit, dismounting turrets, hovering suits and a few other cool additions. The sluggish controls were clearly addressed in this third game. Some new weapons. Slight upgrade on the graphics. Multiplayer seems fun...
Cons: The storyline was a bit shallow. Not much depth. Levels were way too short. Although they gave you a different variety of gameplay, they didn't give you enough of each one. Before you knew it, it was over and on to the next. This felt more story and cutscene driven, rather than game play driven.
Summary: I was really hyped about KZ3 after playing KZ2 for over a year. Unfortunately this game was more like Killzone 1.5 rather than the third installment in the franchise. It has many fewer options than Killzone 2: no custom games, no campaign stats kept in game and a host of other options are missing. The squad system is a giant step backwards and the clan system is a shell of the system in KZ2.
Summary: I've been on the Killzone bandwagon since the first game came out. I've owned every copy on the release date (with the exception of Liberation, which came out prior to my purchase of a PSP). This said, you can take my review one of two ways: that what I am saying is accurate or my expectations for this game were higher than warranted. Regarding the single player game, I have always purchased these games to play through them for the story.
