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

See PSU's review on Metacritic & GameRankings

Killzone: Shadow Fall takes steps to reinvent the franchise in a next-gen transition to wide-open areas, tactical shooting, and a slower pace--all told, a thinking man's game. If you look too closely, it's easy to see Killzone: Shadow Fall as a sum of gameplay, art, and design choices that have made shooters into mainstream blockbusters--inspirations from Crysis, Half-Life 2, and totalitarian settings are worn on its sleeve. B...

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

    Killzone: Shadow Fall is the launch title PlayStation deserves. I say this because, to date, Sony has yet to score an unrequited shooter hit--something on the mainstream-milestone level of Halo, Gears of War, or even a Half-Life. 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...
