5.0 out of 5 stars Killzone Shadowfall Bundle, November 16, 2013
This review is from: Killzone: Shadow Fall (PlayStation 4) (Video Game)
****TOO LONG; DIDN'T READ VERSION:****

+ amazing visuals
+ open world/choice
+ perfectly balanced weapons and classes
+ perfectly balanced maps
+ intense online gameplay

- lack of cut-scenes in single player
- public voice chat is MIA, but should be added in a future update

+/- reviewers knocked this game and battlefield for the campaign mode, yet it held no weight in battlefield's score, meanwhile, reviewers pretty much ignored the multiplayer portion of this game (the best part of the game).

--------------------------------------------------------------

Completely different from all of the other killzone games. The color scheme is no longer dark and gritty. It's futuristic and colorful. The missions are no longer "shoot your way from point A to point B." They're somewhat "free-roam to which objective you want to attack first." The graphics and sound are amazing. The only downfall is the cut-scenes. There are barely any, and they don't really flesh the characters out.

No more one shot kill scrubby marksman sniper rifle. The new rifle is bolt action and requires you to "zoom out" after every shot. The new turrets are actually useful. They can hold down an area easily if placed properly and are very strong. Portable spawns are back in the form of spawn beacons. The classes are perfectly balanced. Where one class has better guns (Assault), it will have weaker abilities. Where one class has weaker guns (Support), it will have stronger abilities. A good user can dominate with any class. This is the first online multiplayer that I say "is about as perfectly balanced as it gets." The online battles are close up and intense. The maps are not symmetrical, but are fair and do not give any team an advantage.

The "professional" idiot reviewers judged this game solely by the single player and paid no mind to the multiplayer. However, they said battlefield had a terrible campaign (like bf3)too, but BFs campaign held almost no weight in the scores. Don't listen to those morons. They will say the same thing about two different games, but weigh those same complaints differently in the overall score. No fanboy here, I like both games and owned multiple entries of both series. I just wanted to put this out there for the potential customers that might have be scared to pick up Shadowfall. They took a big risk, and I couldn't be happier with it.

Would you know if this game has the "Legacy" thumbstick control option, please (where the "Turn" and "Strafe" is swapped)?

Thanks!

Why is lack of cut-scenes in Single Player a negative?
