Fantastic or Decent?
on August 11, 2014
First things first, this is an action first-person shooter with fantastic set piece moments that will keep you engaged throughout the whole campaign. Killzone 3 delivers fantastic visuals on the PS3, even though they are slightly dated due to the fact that the game was released in 2010. There are some pros and some cons. Let's go over the pros first.
PROS: This is a FUN game to play. I can't remember the last time I played a first-person shooter that I had this much fun playing other than COD or Battlefield. Killzone 3 stays true to a traditional first person shooter, but keeps it fresh by adding some neat new gameplay elements such as the flying jet pack, or tank missions. There is also the GREAT multiplayer in the game. Basic team death match modes and such, but still stays fresh. Overall this is an enjoyable game to play, but there are some cons.
CONS: The campaign gets repetitive. Some of the missions drag and feel like they are never going to end due to long duck and shoot type sequences. Occasionally there are some set piece moments to add a cinematic feel, but most of the time the missions are repetitive. Another bummer is the replayability. The main storyline campaign has little to no replayability. Luckily the multiplayer does, which makes up for the campaign.
Killzone 3 delivers a fun and enjoyable experience, but don't go in expecting something as great as The Last of Us or Bioshock Infinite. Go in for the fun and adrenaline rush this game delivers.
