KZ3... WAAAY Better then KZ2, Black Ops, and basically all other FPS...,
This review is from: Killzone 3 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
KZ3 is AWESOME. Much better then KZ2 in EVERY WAY! Graphics, music, sound effects, story, cut-scenes - all these are much more polished, integrated, and enjoyable to watch. Some complain about too many cutscenes interrupting the action, and I sort of agree, but they are done so well and so Bad A** that its just enjoyable to watch! The style of direction on those cut-scenes are GREAT! Very very stylish and dynamic camera shots with amazing animations and visuals. Better then most any other games cut-scenes, so you just sort of stare and say "cooooool", instead of being bummed your not kicking some helg-a***....
The gameplay is super fun and addictive, way way more variety then the first two. The guns feel and sound way more gutsy and powerful. Love it. And the battlefield is just beautiful to look at (in that "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" sort of way). Lighting, smoke, and shadowing effects are awesome and the sound of the gunfights is just totally immersive and killer. The chaos on screen occuring at any given time is just a joy to be absorbed in. It really really feels like your in the middle of an all out WAR! Something these other FPS games didnt really give me. Plus it doesnt seem as hard as KZ2. Guys actually die after a few shots rather then 10 shots.
I'm only halfway thru this game, but let me tell you, the first 30 minutes of this game will hook you. The visuals alone are worth the price of admission (like spending $20 to watch Avatar IMax 3D). The story is getting ho-hum reviews, and hey, its not that bad! It seems better then the second one so far!! And they are saying the voice-acting is too grunt grunt ho-rah, and yeah, it kinda is, but seems WAY more tamed down from the second one. I was really sick of Rico in KZ2, but this one he seems more subdued. So all in all, it is a much much more fun and a better game then KZ2. Totally worth a playthru!!!
