    My quick, honest & far too late Killzone: Shadow Fall review

    As a guy who never got into the Killzone series, I bought Killzone just because I needed another PS4 game to play. Got it for 20$ used on Gamefly(terrific condition BTW), so I didn't expect much. Wanted to try a shooter, but rarely enjoy the FPS genre. Never liked the look of Killzone 2/3 only played it sparingly at friends houses, never blew me away or inspired me to buy the games. Funny enough I purchased it two months or so ago, but didn't get around to playing it just a few days ago after I literally forced myself to play the game. I was expecting to hate it, never was I so wrong.

    WOW. The graphics are insane for a launch title. The enemies are creepy & rewarding to destroy. The tactical style of the campaign was really fun, though unfortunately too short. The combat & brutal stealth melee in particular reminded me of Far Cry 3 which was a great game in its own right. I played it on hard mode and only struggled in a few instances. Overall it had a nice varied color pallet as opposed to what I was expecting from the drab looking Killzone games. Wish they had more missions like the 2nd chapter, its openness & overall style was just super fun. Played with my Gold Wireless Headset, which at the sketchier times without tactical echo had me sweating looking for Helghan's behind corners, the headset performed gloriously & really set the tone.

    To wrap up it blew my expectations out of the water. In fact I will be buying the Killzone collection for the Ps3 on Amazon soon just because I enjoyed the game so much & want more of the lore. I have not touched the multiplayer but will within the next few days. I am such a co-op fan I will end up buying intercept for sure. Very enjoyable game, for anyone who hasn't played it & is questioning it, you must give it a try for the price it is at now. For a launch game, 8/10, maybe a 9 if the multiplayer blows me a away.

    PS:

    If anyone still plays the game online hit me up I would not mind having a vet show me the ropes!

    Definitely under rated. I have never played Knack but am hoping it is available on PSPlus soon!

    I did enjoy Killzone but thought it was over a little too quick! Really want to play Knack but going to wait for that one to crop up on PS+!
