KILLZONE : MERCENARY is the 1st KILLZONE Title that i actually played to completion...and I have played every entry into the series from the PS1 to the PS2 to the PSP. The graphics are outstanding and what we have always wanted from the VITA for FPS. The controls are responsive and the touchscreen while not necessary adds a nice level of integration. Sony should push this title as a flagship title on the VITA and let's hope that the developers of Shadowfall learned from the developers of MERCENARY. If you have a VITA.....you have to play this. After the disappointments of Resistance and Call of Duty......this one delivers the goods.
This game is the epitome of a bland, gray, mediocre shooter. The only reason any gives a hoot about it is because it's portable. The story is just plain bad, the dialogue is non existent. Characters are shoe horned stereotypes, weapons don't feel powerful, they sound dinky.
Controls are decent, but nothing new.
Did I mention the guns don't feel powerful? Takes up to 7 bullets to kill an enemy, wow. I usually play all my games to the end, but this one I'm sending back tomorrow. I'd honestly just rather play around on my iPhone, browsing websites or YouTube, rather than play PS Vita. PS Vita is a failure and it's because Sony doesn't try with it. It's been out for almost two years and there's nothing worthwhile on it whatsoever. $200 Persona Machine.
