I love shooters, especially first person shooters, I have never had a problem with them, I grew up with Call of Duty and still play it to this day. Now, I have never played a killzone game before, I guess they never sparked my interest. I recently got a ps4 and I wanted a game that would bring a total next gen experience, looked on gamefly and saw this. There aren't many titles available at this moment so I went ahead and rented it. played it for 3 hours, and immediately put it back in the little box thingy. I honestly never done that before with any game. Now the reason your reading this review is to see why the game is good or bad and im going to tell you.
First of all, I didn't think the graphics were as good as people were talking about, they were good don't get me wrong but not what I was expecting at all, The first ten minutes of the campaign had you playing as a very young boy named Lucas, as the city is under attack or whatever, you and your dad have to escape and right off the back I new something was going to happen to the father, and to my surprise it does, but my problem was with the voice acting, When the father was bending down and trying to talk to you, the dialogue was like 3 seconds off from the moving mouth animation. It was very annoying and took away from the experience completely.
gameplay was very clunky, I found myself getting stuck on random objects. Sometimes you will get ahead of the scripted moments because the game is not clear on where to go, so you will be 3 feet away from your dad and he will say "lucas! get over here quik", but your already there. Another problem which isn't really a glitch but more like a developers laziness, Is where you get to a certain part of the game and there is a soda machine that has a very noticeable reflection, but as you stand in front of it your reflection isn't in there but the neon sign behind you is. Overall the game was just a huge cliché and not a very good experience at all, rent it but that's it!
