Killzone 3 Review
they can top 2011 trust me this is just the start
santa monica's new ip
final fantasy versus 13
yakuza of the end
so many other ps2 collections
quantic dream's next game
2012 is also looking excellent!
Really?! LOL! I know what games are exclusive or multiplat. I am just saying the PS3 has got some 9.0 games! The kicking A$$ part is based on the exclusives. 2 of them really scoring high so far! Anyway, 2011 is very special.

The cover system is pretty much useless unless you're playing the game on the hardest setting. You won't be able to progress unless you use cover. In Killzone 2 anyway. Can't imagine it would be much different in Killzone 3. I also noticed there is something different about the graphics. While they are as good as ever, they look a tad more grainy than Killzone 2. The guns don't shine as much. As for the sound, I love that the guns echo more now. Like they were going for that great sound BC2 has. Though in doing so they changed some of the sound effects for the guns. The assault rifles and the revolver especially sound diffferent. I prefered the old sound effects.
Good review. Looking forward to this. Can't wait!
Yet another great review. The intensity of KZ2, combined with the very competent AI, I thought was one of the best things about that entire game, and by the sounds of it, they've further improved on that.
I've stated before that I'm not a fan of FPSes, but I'm going to try to reward quality in whatever genre it reveals itself, so KZ3 is a must. My backlog for games is getting a tad out of hand though...
I hope you guys succeed in your efforts to branch out. It would be great to see this site become larger than IGN or Kotaku. Then at least, we will be able to have some reviewers that have common sense.
Ben, second to last paragraph.
Despite a few reservations, which I will admit are more personal in nature, Killzone 3 is a game that begs to played; an experience that begs to be had.
You meant begs to be played. =)
Great review. Any score north of 9 tells me it's a can't miss, top notch title.
I wonder if we will get a Killzone 4, or if they bring the story to an end with this one.

With all the good things I'm hearing about Killzone (2 and 3), it makes me wish that I don't suffer from motion sickness when playing first-person shooters. Reviews like this make me feel like I'm missing on a lot.
Anyway, I was able to try the multiplayer demo for a while and thought it was really fun... until I started getting dizzy. LOL I get killed a lot (I suck at such games), but I don't remember getting frustrated. I might still try playing the game, but I could not really guarantee that. All I'm hoping for is that those who plays and enjoys FPS games would pick this game up.
Great review, Ben. As always.
