Summary: EWWWW! These levels are just not fun. Great graphics. Too bad I can't even see the enemy most of the time. The lighting is blinding, especially when the enemy has flashlights on their weapons that blind you at 30 feet. Just getting to the next checkpoint is a chore. Your shield only deploys forward. Many times you are in an open environment, or a closed environment. The shield is useless in the open, since enemies will flank like crazy.

Summary: It had some nice ideas and then I realized that didn't matter because I have better things to do than wait 5 minutes for a robot to unlock something or watch some guy talk about something that doesn't matter for another 5, just so I could shoot wave after wave of enemies without moving forward.
Summary: Wanted to like this, loved Killzone 2, solid single player, great multiplayer. Was very excited for Killzone 3 but ultimately disappointed by that game, felt weird disjointed, the multiplayer was noticeably worse, the game felt unpolished and not as fun. Was still very excited for this game after seeing lots of coverage of it, especially with the changes in story, and gameplay systems they were introducing!
Summary: This was the first game I purchased to play on the PS4. What a disappointment. To keep this short, here are my issues: 1. Weapon selection is dismal. 2. Map radar is useless. 3. Storyline is mediocre and ending is awful. 4. Stages are inconsistent. As an example, the part where you fall through the clouds was horrible to control and really didn't fit this type of game. 5. Zip line usage is non-existent. 6. No replay value. Positives? Well it's pretty.
Game is beautifully rendered, but lacks to grasp me.

Summary: Love the graphics and the way the game LOOKS. However, I cannot get into the game and its lackluster storyline and the multiplayer mode. It is far from inferior as far as anything else FPS you play online. I understand that this is my opinion and there are people that disagree with me on this, but, I could not finish this game because it just seemed to take FOREVER for the story to go somewhere, and the multiplayer takes a LONG time to get in a game while if you do, you...
Summary: I really don't like this game. In my opinion, it wasn't polished enough. I've played a lot of FPS games and this one just feels clunky and old. There are some neat mechanics that I did like that take advantage of the touch pad. Overall though, I can't finish it. If they make another sequel, I would hope that it's better considering they don't have to meet the deadline of a new console launch.
Summary: This is a great game and definitely a great example of next-generation graphics. But the price on Amazon for this bundle is $10 more than buying everything separately. I would recommend buying the game/season pass with the link here: Killzone Shadow Fall Digital Bundle: Game + Season Pass - PS4 [Digital Code ] If you can time it right around the holidays usually get PlayStation plus for one year for around $30.
So Far Not Impressed...(Review for Single Player Only)

Summary: Upon my initial playthrough of the single player campaign, KZ Shadow Fall has little going for it to make it a memorable title. I haven't gotten into the multiplayer yet, so this review is only considering the campaign. Here's my straight to the point pro/con list, hopefully to be updated as patches are rolled out: Pros: * Beautiful. This will show off what the PS4 can do, mostly in terms of lighting, lens flares, effects etc.
