Excerpt: DISCLAIMER: The reviewer never owned a Playstation 2, and as such the technical scores listed above may be skewed. The control and gameplay scores, however, are based on his feelings having played only Playstation 3 games.
Summary: Well, I realize this game is certainly dated for a number of reasons, but I'm still going to review it fairly based on the year it came out and the dated PS2 platform. I didn't get in to the Killzone series until Killzone 2. It was such a breath of fresh air in the exhausted FPS genre that I had to go back to its roots. The original Killzone is just as wonderful!
Summary: in my opinion, this was an ok game, the storyline was good, but not as deep as i expected, the single player campaign is long and challenging, the controls were easy to get used too,the sound was great even though the helgahst shout "reloading" in a hilarious way in the middle of combat, there is not much to interact with throughout the game, besides picking up guns and hitting people with your gun, there is no use for an action button, and the gun selection is not that...
Summary: I have to say Killzone is a pretty good game. It has enough content packed in the game to keep you busy for weeks or months. The campaign is decent and has good length to it. But, occasionally the game will freeze up in spots but its just a mere second here and there. The weapon selection is pretty good also. I found the best part of the campaign was the story.
Summary: If you consider yourself a hardcore gamer, you owe it to yourself to check out Killzone. While not necessarily a great game, Killzone did plenty of things right. Unfortunately, this is a game that is incredibly hard to separate from the hype. The single player campaign is serviceable, although certain elements of the story are both poorly executed and obvious. The game suffers from frame rate issues, pop-in, and low resolution textures which inexplicably swap into place.
Summary: The game itself was good. There were parts of the game that were good and parts that sucked. I bought this game because I wanted to get refreshed for Killzone 2. They game has it's glitch, and one that doesn't let you finish a level, and the very annoying frame rate problem.The story is cliche but it is an alright one, when you look at the big picture.
