Very Good

Get Into the Zone

Pros: A strong and action packed campaign mode. Many different scenarios that occur that keep the game interesting instead of just shoot now, shoot some more, and shoot again. Multiplayer is very similar to that of Killzone 2 but leveling up and gameplay is much quicker. Botzone mode is a nice touch for those new players to practice before moving on to the real deal. Graphics are amazing to make you feel your in a true survival warfare. A must play game for anyone.

Cons: Co-op mode can only be done locally which brings the point, we are in an online age, who plays local co-op anymore. Vehicle missions in campaign cannot be controlled by player, so your always in the way of fire.

Note: I did beat the game on Elite difficulty. It can be done, Call of Duty's Veteran is more difficult.

Killzone 3

This game was a big step up from Killzone 2, but it still did not do enough in my book to be a great game. The story is decent but is a little poorly written. The graphics are really not up to par with 2011's graphics. The length of the game was bad. (I beat it in a little over 3 hours!) One of my biggest pet peeves with this game is that the accuracy of shooting is bad. There were times when I focused perfectly right on the head of a soldier three feet in front of me with a sniper rifle and shot and didn't hit them. In this day and age that is unacceptable. Multiplayer is a whole nother story. It feels slow as can be at times, the accuracy problem is 100 times worse, and it just felt like I was playing a multiplayer game from the early 2000's.

To sum up ... Killzone 3 was not my cup of tea, but in my opinion the game is worth a play through. If for nothing else you can see how this chapter of the saga ends. Unfortunately the game as a whole does not live up to the hype. I really had high hopes for this one since it reveal, but once again have been left disappointed.
