Weak

Disappointed

I think the best thing to come out of playing Shadow Fall is the clear understanding that pretty graphics can't save poor gameplay. The title is breathtaking and makes the PS4 shine. The problems I faced early on were with story and gameplay. The enemy AI was dreadful. In close combat they fell like dominos but for some reason, when running across the screen they acted like snipers. Distance almost didn't matter as you can get shot with an assault rifle across wild distances. The story and dialogue was awkward and off putting. Even in the first few minutes you watch your father get shot and say "why isn't he moving?" but then have no problem walking away with a complete stranger. I think if you saw your father shot in front of you, you would have bit more emotion. It seemed tacked on and I'd rather they just cut the whole intro.

Too Much Hype...

i wasn't shocked to see a lot of negative reviews when i went to write this. I'm gonna be honest and say, this is the most boring game i have played on PS4 thus far. Nothing was appealing from the start of the game. Right out the gate i noticed the graphics were weak for a next-gen title, the storyline is trash and i found myself rushing to finish so i could send this back. Defiantly quite a disappointment and not what i was expecting from a launch title that was so hyped. Resulted in me rating Killzone: Shadow Falls a 4/10...

Well this has the same feel and look as other killzone games. Looks impressive and controls are good. The AI could have been better, you could almost do 80% of the game by sneaking around. Game gets kind of boring unless your a big fan of the franchise. I'd say Rent first and see if you like it.
