    Killzone (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 gotKillzone (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.

    Do not compare Kill-Zone to Halo: Combat Evolved or Halo 2. They're two completely different games that have only one thing in common, and that's the fact both Halo 2 and Kill-Zone have online play and wanted to have a focus on such. Not much to brag about today, though during the Play-Station 2 days, Kill-Zone is quite the amazing first person shooter.

Some small technical problems are existent, though it's nothing game-breaking. Kill-Zone's gun-play is top-notch and the vast variety of modes with A.I. and a lengthy campaign will have you coming back for more. Expand

  1. The innovative controls for the sniper rifle don't allow the player to pull off precise headshots when they're needed most, which leads to rising frustration.
  2. If the gameplay matched the atmosphere, Killzone would be a real winner.
  3. Killzone was worth the wait, and matches the hype. It hits the mark in so many ways, it's baffling; they promised us we'd experience fugture war, and we have...and come away shaking. [Holiday 2004, p.70]
