    Gameplay as a whole is woefully unbalanced, leading to death after death for no good reason. Each time, you will question your desire to persevere; it's a losing battle.

    Quite addicting, but it's not all to easy to get into. Yes, if you loved the original killzone (or 2 and/or 3) chances are you will love this. It is fun, though while it tells a story, I never really played for the story, since the story REALLY is like killzone 1's story only without the parts where it actually explains WHY these two factions or teams or sides or WHATEVER are/is fighting. Also, some of the controls say "Press and hold" when really I held the button down without pressing it, and it happens to work anyways CONTROOOOLS! This game is still very fun and enjoyable, and if you like this, chances are you will be playing mercenary soon. Luckily, if you had a PS3 and a PSP when the networks were done with the long waiting (if you haven't heard of the hack that occurred on the PSN in 2011) you would get this FOR FREE (along with other games such as, LBP PSP and Police Force). It doesn't take a killzone addiction to love this game, really. This game is a great PSP shooter overall and is HIGHLY recommended.
    If you love killzone, play this.

    Graphics, sound, story, and polish are great. Mission structure, controls, gunplay, and Ai are great as well. The game also has single player campaign, challenges, co op, and competitive multiplayer. No online play though, just local. Full Review »
