Nov 22, 2012A substandard, lazy port only serves to highlight how dated Killzone HD feels. What could have been a brilliant reimagining of the originals dark, futuristic story in a more modern game engine instead brings back memories of yesteryear. Dated shooting mechanics, busted damage models and corridor-layouts with illusions of larger, open environments are only saved by the visual style and the sound engineering. Unfortunately, that's not enough to create an enjoyable gaming experience.

Aug 31, 2013This is actually a quite conflicting game to review. So I will simply list the factors I like and don't like, and then you can judge for yourself:
+ Fun Gameplay
+ Good Story
+ Nice Characters
+ Once unlocked, being able to play as ANY character in the next chapter.
+ Button remapping. Not completely custom, but a great feature none the less.
- Cut-scenes are of poor quality. They appear murky and turbid.
- Voice acting quality is quite poor too.
- Voice acting is not great, especially on AI enemies.
- Boss battles are not special. At all.
- Missions are repetitive at times.
- Minor graphical bugs.
As a game, I give Killzone a 7.3, but as a remake, I give it 6.2.
But since this is the only way that I've played Killzone, I will give it the collected score of 7 (since gameplay and story outweigh the visuals in my opinion).… Full Review »
