From the Manufacturer
Killzone: Mercenary is a first-person shooter in the Killzone series, powered by the stunning Killzone engine. Developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform, Mercenary enhances the familiar twin-stick FPS control scheme with touch pad functionality for interesting new gameplay possibilities.
Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador’s young son. With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.
With Killzone: Mercenary, PlayStation Vita owners get a fresh perspective on the brutal conflict between ISA and Helghast – literally. For the first time in a Killzone campaign, you’ll be fighting alongside Helghast forces as well as ISA specialists, carrying out missions that the regular soldiers just won’t — or can’t.
Comprised of nine single-player missions — each nearly an hour in length — Killzone: Mercenary delivers the full experience in a portable package. Completed missions unlock additional replay challenges, with a host of special objectives to accomplish. The game also boasts a full-fledged multiplayer mode with six maps tailored for eight players and three different game types, including the popular Warzone mode.
In keeping with the soldier-for-hire theme, every action in the game is rewarded. The better you perform, the higher your payout – not just in the single-player campaign, but also in the multiplayer mode. The wages you collect are deposited into a single bank account, so the money you earn in the campaign missions can also be used to buy gear and weapons for multiplayer matches, and vice versa.
As a mercenary, you’re free to decide which tactics and loadouts you’ll use to fulfill your contract; your employers will reward you with state-of-the-art weaponry and cold, hard cash as long as you get the job done. But what is the price of that freedom – and will you discover it before it’s too late?
Tailored to the PS Vita
Killzone: Mercenary makes full use of PlayStation Vita’s considerable input and graphics capabilities. It enhances the familiar dual-stick FPS control scheme with touch controls for actions such as brutal melee, and with tilt controls for accurate sniper aiming. The game even uses the powerful Killzone 3 engine to bring its massive environments and impressive set pieces to life.

First of all, Killzone Mercenary looks beautiful and runs without noticeable slowdowns on the PS Vita's impressive OLED screen. The game's graphic engine is a modified version of Killzone 3 rendering engine, a PS3 game. With some obvious textures and effects downscaling still, Mercenary is the best looking game on the PS Vita and the best looking portable FPS shooter I've ever had the delight of playing.
So, for those who were not able to enjoy the beta the multi-player is pretty much standard comparing it to a console game, you've got 3 modes (Mercenary Warfare, Guerilla Warfare, and Warzone). The first two modes were not available to play while the game was on closed and public beta. The first two modes are Death Match and Team Death Match respectively. Warzone is a team based mode with set strategic objectives in each of it's 5 rounds. You have to collect valor cards (dropped by an enemy when you kill it, or by an ally when it gets killed), interrogate enemies, hack van-guard capsules (twice), and kill as many enemies as you can. All of these 3 modes can be played in 6 decently proportioned maps. Multi-player is as robust as it gets for a handheld game: collectibles, ranks, a variety of weapons, and the van-guard modules.Read more ›
Let's dive deeper:
Controls- the controls feel great. The buttons are set up just like a FPS would be on the PS3. You can use the buttons or the touch screen/ rear touch pad. Touch the screen to open doors, pick up ammo, set a bomb, and kill your enemy with a mele. Also, you can use the rear touch pad to run faster. You think it would feel weird, but it actually works since your fingers are closer to the back pad than to the O button.
The only issue I have with the controls is that after playing for a while, my hands hurts. But I think that's only because playing multiplayer for a long time will do that to anyone.
Graphics- This game looks like a console game. Maybe not as good as recent PS3 games, but at least as good (if not better) than older PS3 games. So just like every new console, the graphics will only get better from here. But don't get me wrong, the game looks beauitful as is. Multiplayer looks amazing! And the funny thing is, it looks better than Call of Duty game I have ever played on my PS3.
Multiplayer - Multiplayer just has 3 modes. Pretty much it's Free For All, 4 vs 4 death match, and Warzone (which some of you played on the Beta) My favorite? The free for all! It is so fun to have that "every man for themselves" feeling. The scoring isn't by points. It's by cash.Read more ›
Story: the story is outstanding and takes place just after the ending of the original killzone. You take control of the mercenary name Arran Danner. No spoilers to the story, you'll find out after the evacuation of the ambassadors son what will happen. Although, it felt fairly linear. Overall 4/5
A neat thing about this game is the options you have of whether going to be fighting with isa specialists or helghast forces. Also, you have a money reward system, which gives you money for Everything. That's pretty cool because you feel the progression, but it could've been toned down a bit.
Controls: the controls feel spot on with this game, and we could thank that to the 2nd analog stick and touch screen controls. I felt like everything was brought together in harmony. Overall 5/5
Presentation/graphics: the producers said mercenary is running on killzone 3's engine, and yeah, but it's been toned down a lot. The game will stutter occasionally, but only in heated combat. The graphics, I felt could be better, but are good.
Multiplayer; this is another stand out feature of this game with 3 modes and strong maps I felt this really nailed it. Felt fun and rewarding.
Replayability is totally here, thanks to rewards and troughs, and with multiplayer, makes a solid package.
Overall, killzone mercenary is a must buy, despite its minor flaws. It has a lot of things going for it. Would I recommend it? Yes. Should you buy it? Yeah! Stop reading reviews and go get it. The best experience on ps vita to date.
