5.0 out of 5 stars awesome all-out war experience, 25 Feb 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Killzone 3 - Move Compatible (PS3) (Video Game)
I was lucky enough to get the game a day early so I've been playing it quite a lot and I played the beta before that so I know enough to say that this is a seriously awesome FPS. I was a big MW2 fan until the hackers took hold and I gave it up, so if you're a disillusioned CoD fan, this is the game for you.

In the multiplayer, there's no wealth of weapon/perk challenges to complete a la CoD. Some might not be satisfied with not seeing 'challenge completed' on your screen every five minutes, but for me it's what makes the game unique. The focus is completely on the warfare, the teamwork and giving the player a proper space-war experience. There is also less emphasis on what badge you've got or what level you're on, again putting the focus on the warfare rather than levelling up. I have also had no problems at all (touchwood) with the servers and have not been cut off once. I never even got cut off when I was in a game in the beta. Having also given up on BFBC2 because of their awful servers, this is a breath of fresh air.

The campaign is also worth playing. People complain that KZ doesn't bring anything new, that it's more of the same and it's short, but I think that misses the point. Again, it's about having an all-out visceral war experience and this really brings it. The story is simple, but what do you expect? This isn't Uncharted. It's about massive explosions, epic settings and killing loads of Higs. And who cares if the campaign is short? Everyone who has this game is going to be putting 50+ hours into the multiplayer and that's value for money. They've noticeably improved the voice acting too so it's not as tacky as KZ2. This is definitely one of the best FPS I've played and one of the best games on the PS3.

Makes me laugh when 360 fanboys try to suggest that this game doesn't look that good or that other shooters on 360 look better and that the PS3 isn't that much more powerful. I am a 360 owner and a PS3 owner and I'll tell it like it is, 360 games look great and some look better than PS3 games for the record especially multi platform. But for anyone that thinks or suggests that games like this or Uncharted could be done on 360 and look anywhere near as detailed and run just as smoothly are absolutely closet fanboys having a laugh.

It's natural for fans to talk up their preferred choices, naturally, but fanboys refuse to give any credit where credit is due and they'll say anything to minimize the competition. There's a big difference between telling it like it is, and minimizing to the point of looking silly. And since when did saying the PS3 is graphically superior and more capable than the 360 (which it is) make anyone a fanboy for speaking the truth of all things ? LOL.
