Summary

In its attempt to iterate on Killzone trademarks, Shadow Fall comes up short of greatness, but has enough tight action and expanded lore to please series enthusiasts.

We like

  • Visceral, polished shooting
  • Breathtaking graphics and art direction
  • Well-realized setting and universe

We dislike

  • Vague level design with poor signposting
  • Lonely single-player missions
  • Flight and freefall sections

  • Hands-on with Killzone: Shadow Fall: a launch title legend in the making

    Killzone: Shadow Fall is the launch title PlayStation deserves.

Sure, you can get the latter on PS3 (and rumors are swirling that Gea...

  • OPINION: Look before you leap into PS4, Killzone, and the uncanny valley

    There was something deftly unimpressive about Guerrilla Games' showing of Killzone: Shadow Fall last week. It may only have been a small demo, and certainly a work-in-progress, but I wonder if it had the audience at Sony’s conference cringing as much as I did. Maybe my expectations were too lo...
