I guess hybrids are very popular nowadays.
..you mean, like MAG (after the patching), and KZ2 (after the patching).. Doesn't seem like rip-offs are very popular at all, specially on the ps3.
K2 was reviewed at a time were 10's were being handed out like water for many games...
..uh.. "The PS3 has no games", remember? "KZ2 is no Halo Killer". If you read Gaf at the time, you'd be surprised the game scored at all. Half of the reviews for KZ2 were hate-rants, with reviewers being mad that the game didn't turn up on xbox. And it still managed about the highest score for any ps3 game until then.
so every review so far is worse than kz2. i think GG should just let this franchise die and start a completely new one from scratch.
what surprises me is that i was thinking that kz3 would have a better story and less of the stuttering load screens that plagued part two, but its still here but worse.
the multiplayer is worse than kz2 also. controls are faster, but still not as good as most other shooters, because of the weird acceleration.
the bots (engineer,airbot,medic bot) are stupid, and should of been taking out of the game.
since i played the beta in october, the game left a bad taste in my mouth, but i was almost certain single player would be better, but i guess not.
at least i didnt hype myself up this time.
anyways the hardcore kz fanboys will defend this game to the death. besides kz2, i dont think GG had any good games.
"every review is worse than KZ2" now that's where I stopped reading. Why would you say something so stupid, so immediately in your OP? at least try to keep the stupidity out of the first line.
Anyway, 'every' review isn't worse than KZ2, the average of all the review scores, is worse than KZ2s average of all it's review scores, is I can only presume what you intended to say. Either way, I wouldn't let reviewers influence your decision significantly. You have a beta at your fingertips. If you enjoy it, buy the game, if you don't, don't buy the game.
You don't like the beta. That's fair enough. I can respect someone's opinion, and you don't enjoy it, therefore even if the review scores indicated it was the best game on earth, you shouldn't buy it. You seem like a person that's very easily influenced, based on what you've shared here anyway.
Also I don't think lashing out at the 'hardcore kz fanboys' is necessary. The game has an 87 metacritic, whilst not as good as KZ2, it's very respectable for any game to achieve. It still makes it one of the best FPSs, out on PS3. I'd say it should definitely be a game that all fans of shooters, should at least try.
play the game for yourself and you review it.. there is no need to read 2 page reviews of crappy journalism.....
Nothing wrong with reviews man. Not that they should be the basis of ones opinion, but they can make an enjoyable read, and there's plenty of quality (ie non 'crappy') journalism out there.
Destructoid put out a nice KZ3 review, I believe. Well, Jim Sterlings reviews are usually interesting anyway.
well, i double check..
and well.. Killzone 3 review score do indeed is lower than Killzone 2 review score..
for reviews. i posted in my previous post..
the game is not even out yet.. so play the full game and then see how it is..
since even me.. after playing the beta.. eh. it's a rental.. not a purchase.. maybe a purchase when the online is properly tweaked
lol this game was hyped to death, and now the story is worse than it was in part 2? even the gametrailers review said that the story was underwhelming.
anyways i dont care too much about the story, and was looking forward to the mp.
i was in the psn+ beta, and now im currently playing the demo.
seriously did GG even listen to anyone in the closed beta? the capture points are still pretty lame, and now they added silenced weapons?
the MP is worse than kz2 in my opinion.
