The developers of this game show no mercy. 1st mission they pretty much throw you right in. No getting used to the controls, etc. Some missions remind me alot of Dead Space, alot of figuring out how to get from point A to B then you have to get back to A to get what you need to get to C. After a few missions, you start to get the hang of things. The game does not flow smooth like the earlier Killzones, otherwords.. you can't just sail through a mission in 10-15 minutes.. But thats definatly not a bad thing. Just alot different then what I was expecting.
This BY FAR, and I have both machines X1 and PS4, is the only game I'm still playing since launch. The campaign is interesting for a first person shooter, it's different kind of game than COD and Battlefield in many ways.
For those games, I always skipped the stories to just play Multiplayer. Killzone I found it's story more compelling and interesting than those franchises. It's such a pretty game, it was a pleasure to play with an intriguing story. With latest patches, they cleared up any problems early adapters dealt with.
Multiplayer is incredible. I have put so many hours into this aspect of the game alone, I've easily got my moneys worth. I actually just got the Jack of All Trades trophy :] (look it up). If you are a trophy hunter you will spend most of your time in this area.
Maps are interesting with strong variation between them, some maps are good for sniping, some arenot etc, which all are for free, no mandatory DLC purchases. Mild variation between multiplayer modes though, you can bet on 700-900 people playing at anyone time, maybe over 1k on a weekend. Which this game deserves more than that.
Most common are Warzone and TDM ranging from 7v7 & 12v12 arrangments. After matches, the top players are shown on a special splash screen and the top player can execute the enemy's top player which is a interest touch. As of 1.31.14 you can purchase new executing moves, which are AWESOME. Really anger people with those.
The abilities are special enough, to say that for me, it's dethroned Battlefield altogether. I have no interest after headaches and the beta called BF4. Killzone has three classes with specific abilities, attachments and side weapons to unlock will keep you busy for a long time. The maps are interesting and base turrets keep players honest from Base Camping, for the most part. All in all, it's an excellent experience and I've met so many cool people that have now become good friends.
First thing, the graphics are the best you've ever seen. There is a point in the game when you're flying through the city taking in the view and it's absolutely amazing looking. There is actually a button sequence you have to press during to not die and I had to re-do it 2 times as I was taking it all in. The campaign story is alright. Not great, not terrible. Gameplay is great. They could've done a better job with the stealth part of the game, sometimes it's basically impossible to go the stealth route instead of goin Rambo. My biggest complaint is the lack of direction. It says it has a button to lead you to your next objective but you'll find that at some parts it's impossible to find and you'll spend a half hr wondering around looking. It was VERY frustrating. But overall it was right up there asone of the best Killzones to date. The 2nd Killzone still holds up as the best story but this one's gameplay is far better. Both had groundbreaking graphics for the time. It's a must have for any PS4 owner.
