Let me make a full disclosure, my review only applies to the game as it relates to the PS3 Move.
I have not been a hardcore gammer. The last time I dominated gaming was Supertechmo Bowl for the original Ninetendo. I just purchased the PS3 within the past week. I only did this to get the Move. I wanted to play a first person shooter to make sure I wanted to keep it. I haven't played a FPS game in a long time. I was never any good with them on the PC. I bought the MOVE system and went with everything I could. Made sure I got the gun and the other extra stuff.
The other game I got was SOCOM 4. I realized one of the most important things was to be able to duck and shoot. I think I've got it down in SOCOM (at least I can do it).
In Killzone 3 I WAS UNABLE TO BE ABLE TO DUCK AND FIRE EFFECTIVELY. The problem is the way the buttons are configured it makes it very hard to do certain things. This flaw was fatal for me.
Well, save yourself the rental. I haven't played the Killzone titles before, but this was very disapointing. The shooting action and the aiming with the guns is beyond difficult. The only word to describe the shooting on this game is TERRIBLE. You may as well be blind. If you familiar with Modern Warfare or Halo, you should skip this rental because the online is even more depressing. It lags constantly and drops lobbies as if you are playing on dial up internet. Overall, Disappointing.

I heard all of the hype, played Killzone 2 and finally got a chance to play this game and I was completely underwhelmed. More of the same old cookie cutter Killzone/COD/BFBC shooter. Lather, rinse and repeat as needed until you have soaked every last dime of profit from the series.
Ever play a game and just as you get to the end you just lose interest in it completely? That would be a good way to describe this game. I didn't play it in multiplayer because the console multiplayers are a waste of time. I get my multiplayer fun in on the pc.
Underwhelmed, unimpressed and not ever worth purchasing. Barely worth renting.
