Great Game, Compelling Story
For starters, this isn't Halo, and this isn't Call of Duty. A lot of players buy this game with preconceptions of what to expect, and end up disappointed. However, if it's going to receive comparisons, then I suppose you could say it resembles CoD in part of its gameplay, but that's where it all ends. Killzone 3 continues the storyline set by the previous games, and introduces some new characters with dynamic personalities and likability. Some you fall in love with, others you hate for most of the game. But that just makes it interesting. The weapons and battles are amazing, and the level of detail to the landscape and graphics is stunning, even by today's standards (though it only came out two years ago). This is the first in the series that I've played, though I've watched my friends play the previous games, and hadn't seen any of Killzone 3's gameplay, so I decided to buy it on a whim. It didn't let me down. It has some really awesome moments, and other instances that'll have you saying "Holy crap" over and over. In anticipation of Killzone 4, which comes out later this year on the PS4, I highly, highly recommend buying K3 on Amazon or somewhere cheap (I got mine for $12). You'll be glad you did. It's a beautiful game that will have you back on the campaign trail over and over (and the multiplayer aspect is pretty sweet too).
