    killzone liberation is an admirable attempt to turn the series into a top down shooter. Problems arise when aiming is inconsistent and the challenge becomes relentless. This game doesn't feel like much of a war and your AI partner on some missions are rather thick. Still the action is satisfying and manning turrets,tanks and even a hovercraft give this shooter good depth-the repetitivekillzone liberation is an admirable attempt to turn the series into a top down shooter.

    A good top-down shooter for the PSP. The missions are a good length for a portable game. They're rather linear, but in a portable you probably don't have a lot of time to go exploring, so I didn't mind that. Graphics are pretty good. Decent selection of weapons and upgrades. The challenges break up the missions well and are worth doing, earning some useful abilities. The story isA good top-down shooter for the PSP. The missions are a good length for a portable game.

The story is nothing special, though not terrible either, and the gameplay should keep you going through to the end. Easily worth playing. Expand

    Killzone: Liberation for the Playstion Portable was a great game and the Bosses were a witty challenge to the game's original story line.It was a 10/10 for : graphics,music,voice acting and overall storyline.

    Very good game, great production values, quick-paced action, well balanced gameplay. Might be a little frustrating at certain points (especially final level), but that's nothing for action game fan. Getting free DLC chapter 5 is a bit of a hassle though (have to download the data manually from developer's web site on PC and transfer to PSP), and without it the story does not conclude andVery good game, great production values, quick-paced action, well balanced gameplay.

    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.

    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.Quite addicting, but it's not all to easy to get into.

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.

  1. Any game can be an emotional experience if it has a little soul. And to put it bluntly, Killzone: Liberation is just soulless. [Oct. 2006, p.66]
  2. The single-player missions are rather linear but the gameplay mechanics create an environment where players won’t be fumbling with controls, but will be able to experience the game for what it presents.
  3. While Killzone: Liberation isn’t mindblowing and has some flaws, it's a good action game for a game system on the go.
