Killzone 3 is just short of being my vision of the perfect game. Aside from the few bugs the game plays smoothly. The player can choose between the original control scheme or a more traditional "Call of Duty" like setup, no matter which one you prefer there is still a slight learning curb if the player is new to the series. In terms of gameplay, the guns feel like they have emphasis and are all incredibly deadly in their own right. The levels are spectacular to look at and almost always have massive set pieces that seem alive, and most of the time lethal, such as the MAWLR. The graphics are simply the most amazing thing I have seen in a video game to date, but I did notice a lag between when the voices of characters would play and when the character's mouths would move, the worst this got was in the first snow area where i saw a good 2-3 second lag between them. Finally, the story is amazing and never left me bored in any of the time I played it. The multi player is just amazing with intuitive controls, enjoyable guns to use, and the best form of leveling i have seen. Killzone 3 is just an amazing experience that will keep the player intertaned for their entire experience.
Lets keep it simple, this is the best fps I have played in a long time. Graphics are great, the enemies even on easy are ruthless, multiplayer is a blast. I honestly can’t find anything bad to say about this game. However, the main highlight I would have to say is It finally makes me feel like the playstation move might actually make it in the long run. I bought it when I was drunk a few days after launch, and with the lack-luster game line up so far I was ready to trade it in before it becomes completely obsolete. Pair this with the new sony sharpshooter accessory makes this a must have for any fps player. A word of advice though, play for awhile with the move before trying this1 online, or just use the controller, the fact that the cursor moves a bit makes aiming a little bit of a pain till you get used to it, and people online using the standard controller will just pick you off before you get a second shot. So in conclusion, this game rocks, rent it, buy it, steal it of you have to, you won’t be disappointed.

All you ps3 owners are in for a real treat as the arrival of Killzone 3 is here. Killzone has came a long way from its ps2 debut. Killzone 2 was great but Killzone 3 is perfect. The game takes place right where we left off with a huge war against the helghast. You step in the footsteps of ISA soldier and go head on with the Helghast. Not to much has changed in gameplay, but why fix what isnt broken. The shooting mechanics are much tighter than the previous titles. The graphics are still stunning, and the sound of your shots echoing down courdors still makes a chill go down the spine. Im not a fanboy of any console i love them all but xbox360 couldnt deliver killzone like the ps3. There are hundreds of things going on at one time from drop ships crashing to helghast everywhere. The multi-player is fun and will give call of duty fans a break for awhile. Pick this game up i guarantee you will love it.
