    Sooo... how about multiplayer then? And seems like campaign is going to be pretty much same as Killzone 3, disappointing.

    I also like how Polygon is ignored because lol Polygon.

    Call of $#@! and Battle farts both get free pass and score well, for doing the same thing every year!!

    The only thing that KZ:Shadow fall got for it now, is just pretty graphics.

    the real complaint to KZ is as usual storytelling, GG never was good at it. And for open lvl design, well GG again trying something different than most games on the market, and press didnt like it, because this is not what they a get used to and not what they are pushed through years now

    It's all about whether you enjoy the game and that's all that matters! Shame the review was not better but could've been worse!

    Has Sony ever had a AAA game for launch that scored in the 90s plus on metacritic/gamerankings? I think no.

    So the usual trend of critics being overly hard on Killzone, but giving every other FPS a free pass continues. How cute.

    Metacritic is a joke. Gamespot is a joke, IGN is a joke. Any of these big name gaming sites are a joke when it comes to reviews. Those sites are paid to give good or bad reviews. Don't take none of it seriously.

    Haven't paid attention to a "game review" in years.

    This thread did remind me that I need to go buy my copy of Shadowfall though.

    I'm not as critical of games as these reviewers are.

    My problem with reviews is not criticizing the game, its the double standards they have, or probably the money they get!

    Same here. I like to hear what most complain about and how the gameplay looks. If I know I'll be able to tolerate the complaints and gameplay then I'm playing that game one way or another.

    That's the funny thing about all the Fps. Call of Duty and BF always get high praise and it's almost entirely because of its MP. They say well SP does some stuff better but overall same rehashed experience. But They like MP so it gets a 8 or higher. This game is scrutinized heavily for its SP and MP. Never understood why the ones that try to make a decent campaign are crucified for it more times than not.

    To be fair, Battlefield 4's multiplayer is far more ambitious and varied than Killzone: Shadow Fall's.

    Also, COD: Ghosts received around the same scores as Killzone: Shadow Fall. Mid-70s.

    Polygon need to get better editors and proof readers

    Killzone: Shadow Fall is developer Guerrilla Games’ latest attempt to find a niche for the their AAA shooter franchise.

    That's fine but I mostly refer to the fact that those games are practically rated for MP and SP is just a second thought when doing the review. The scores always reflect it because they will talk about how mediocre and like the last but the MP is better than last time and the score is still high. But KZ is judged much harder on both fronts. This isn't a knock of the big guys of reviews this is most reviews.

    It's like the reviews don't care about how mediocre the SP is on the big 2, as long is MP is good they don't care. Maybe it's because KZ is perceived as a SP first game but considering the genre is the same, it just feels off.

    Perhaps that's because COD & Battlefield's multiplayer is just better than Killzone's? I don't want to be too critical of the critics (lol) unless I played all three games.
