Good review Ben. I actually picked this up earlier today even after I was thinking I wasn't but considering how I love buying games and a lot of the reviews have been showing good I figured what the hell. Plus it'll make up for the small let down on Homefront.

I'm trying to understand that graphics score, 9.3. KZ3 rated a 9.1 in this department. I thought everyone who's played Crysis 2 and KZ3 was in agreement that KZ3 looked better. It looks like Ben believes otherwise. Interesting.

Head scratcher isn't it?

The great thing about Killzone 3 too is it doesn't take a graphical hit in its multiplayer mode while Crysis 2 does. 🙂

I think when it comes down to KZ3 vs. Crysis 2 in the graphic department, it probably depends on preference. I like KZ3 graphics a lot but I think I prefer Crysis 2's graphics over it. I like how Crysis 2 has that "soft, natural" look, KZ3 has more of a hard, sharp look that doesn't look bad, I just like the other look better.

"Killzone 3 is better than Crysis 2 for a few reasons, and only one of them is based on graphics."

Ben stated that in a BeanBoom discussion on an earlier thread today. Maybe he mistakingly gave KZ3 a 9.1? Because otherwise something doesn't make sense.

True one can prefer how Crysis 2 looks but when you get down to the nitty gritty of it, like animations, texture quality, performance, Killzone 3 is undeniably the better of the two. As I said in another thread, Crysis 2 has pop in and is quite glitchy at times, can get very blurry and slow down at times. Killzone 3 does none of these things, it has better looking vistas and stays in focus 100% of the time while at the same time has a lot more going on on screen.

I'd say one of the things Crysis 2 does well though is it's lighting. The bloom effect looks more natural.

Two reasons for the discrepancy in graphics scores:

1. There's something about the KZ3 graphics - particularly in the cut-scenes - that I considered a step backwards. Hard to put my finger on, but it bugged me.

2. I'm holding PS3 exclusives to a slightly higher standard. For a multiplatform game, Crysis 2 gets a 9.3.

I know what you mean Ben. When jumping back and fourth between KZ2 and 3 to compare, it almost seemed as if Killzone 2 was clearer at times.

I too will consider a bargain purchase down the line, I'm a tad busy with RPGs now but I have to say that the scores proved me wrong. And that's always good in this business:

I hope Ben won't mind if I promote myself again,

One thing I noticed is the cutscenes look compress. As well as the sound. I have to turn Crysis 2 up much louder than I do most PS3 exclusives. I had the same problem with Dead Space 2 in regards to the audio. I wish these developers would make the extra effort to leave the sound and cutscenes uncompressed for the PS3 versions of their games. Some do but not all.

Another testament as to why exclusives are better. Blu-Ray FTW! 🙂

Yeah. We should just keep giving CoD a free pass because it's CoD.

And who ever heard of comparing shooters to other shooters in reviews? That's just, like, totally crazy.

I plan on getting this on Friday or Saturday, but has anyone here who bought it beat it yet? Is it really, really awesome?

How is the power jump? Is it cool or is it floaty like in Halo?
