Excellent

Superb shooter!

Upon getting a 3D TV a month ago, I was really looking forward to this game. I was very impressed overall and had a great time throughout the entire single player campaign. The controls were tight, the 3D graphics were very immersive, and I even thought the story was good. I'm not sure why other reviews knocked it, but I felt it was just enough to give me a reason why I was doing the things my character was doing, but not too much to bore me. I did try out the Sharpshooter controller for the Move, but found that it was too hard to hold up for long periods of time, although it did work pretty well. The Move by itself was well-integrated, but to be honest, it felt inferior to using the gamepad. Overall, this was a very fun game, and I recommend it over Homefront or any of the other shooters that have come out recently.

Fun Shooter

It's a visually stunning game with some fun shooting and mediocre cut scenes. The Move option is just ok. I bought the gun to go along with the game. Calibrating, calibrating, and more calibrating. Still doesn't make it that good of a game. It's a nice idea, but doesn't make it better. The ending sucks, but getting there can be fun. The online was a lot slower moving than I like. I prefer Black Ops & Crysis 2 Demo. But overall, it's a good game.

Tells its story

It's a pretty fun game. It looks good and the controls work, but outside of that you won't really find anything remarkable here. You follow a linear path on the way to completing your next objective pretty much holding the trigger button down. Most of the time, you don't even have to worry about dying as your partner is always right there with his magic stick to pick you up right away. Which brings me to the major problem I have with this game: there's no difficulty. Your basically immortal with no real punishment for death, ammo and guns are absolutely everywhere so you dont ever have to worry about that and there's no way that you can get lost or turned around on route to yur objective since your partner prods you the entire time and there's no real reason to play through it again.

Multiplayer extends Killzone 3's life a little bit. It's well executed shoot 'em up fun. Nothing game changing, but at least it's there.
