Behold, Killzone: Shadow Fall, a game among Sony’s vanguard for its PlayStation 4 launch line-up, as well as one of their exclusives. As an exclusive launch title for Sony’s shiny new console, it carries with it a lot of hype and expectations for the “Next Gen.” The first Killzone was infamously dubbed as a ‘Halo Killer’ on the PS2 when, in actuality, it was never trying to be one. While Halo had super soldiers, alien weaponry, and a colorful world, Killzone was more grounded in realism with armies of soldiers, current-sci-fi guns, and gritty war-torn battlefields. It aimed to deliver a World War 2 setting of the near future and, in doing so, they produced the Helghast with their iconic black gas masks and glowing red eyes. They are reminiscent of the Third Reich and are essentially Neo-Nazis.
Has this new Killzone been able to deliver on the “Next Gen” experience many are waiting for, or is it familiar territory hidden behind the shiny new coating? Read More…
I didn’t get my PlayStation 3 until 2010, so I thought I wasn’t ready for the next generation just yet. And, to be fair, I am still very happy with my PS3 and I think it has a lot of life left. But, when I played the PlayStation 4 for the first time and held that amazing new controller in my hands, I knew I made the right decision purchasing a PlayStation 4 at launch.
I always thought the DualShock 3 was the greatest controller ever made, until I held the DualShock 4. The biggest improvement is the L2 and R2 triggers; I can actually use those buttons for shooters now! I haven’t used the touchpad for anything yet, but I’m sure it will be useful in future games. I find myself hitting the touchpad when reaching for the start–er, option button, but I’m sure that’s something we’ll all get used to pretty quickly.
Visually, everything is stunning. Killzone looks so incredible, and even Call of Duty looks amazing. I can’t wait to see what Uncharted 4 and other PlayStation exclusives look like on this amazing system.
Currently, the PCR team has Killzone Shadow Fall, Need For Speed Rivals, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Contrast, Warframe, and Call of Duty Ghosts. We will be posting reviews very soon. Stay tuned to PCR for all your gaming needs.
