  1. The game's got a bevy of problems, including boring gameplay, a horrendous framerate, and lousy aiming.
  2. 30
    Like the game’s aiming, Killzone misses the mark by a mile. Afflicted with so many niggling problems it has ended up a shambles of game which barely delivers on any front.
  3. About as interesting as keeping a pistol for a pet...It's a fine technical achievement, sure, but there's little game here. The graphics alone keep Killzone off the bottom.

    Killzone (PLAYSTATION) attempted to beat Halo (XBOX) and well they are both epic but I prefer Killzone because its really the Sci-Fi genre IKillzone (PLAYSTATION) attempted to beat Halo (XBOX) and well they are both epic but I prefer Killzone because its really the Sci-Fi genre I like in Video Games. Alot of people don't like Killzone because it tried too much to be the PLAYSTATION version of Halo but after Killzone 2 and 3 came out everybody shuted-up. I see on METACRITIC that K1 got 70/100 and K2 got 91/100 and K3 got 84/100, um I don't care what those guys say for me K1 is the best out of the trilogy, Its campaign is a real challenge, the graphics I'll pass on that one, the characters are Bad Ass and Killzone deserves 10/10.

    Killzone is a game an above average game even but the hype behind was part of its downfall. Graphics are ok but flawed in many places, Killzone is a game an above average game even but the hype behind was part of its downfall. Graphics are ok but flawed in many places, gameplay is repetitive and multiplayer is a disaster. The story line however is good and single is fun, mainly because you get a sense of real fightning not halo style but fun. The game actually gives off a military feeling, you cook grenades, enemy's shout potions to each other blind fire is everywhere and taking cover is essential. The game is no "halo killer" but still solid and fun while it lasts. Full Review »
