Killzone 3 was supposed to be one of the best games of 2011, now after playing it I can promise you it is not, but before I go into rage mode and rant let me tell you what is good about this game.
Ok the first half of the game is wonderful, some of the best gameplay, and story I had seen in a fps, granted the lip syncing was a little of but hey you can't have it all. In the first half of the game we are introduced to a board of directors you could say. these men are the bad guys, after their leader was killed in the second game there is a struggle for power between a man called Johan Stahl, and some other dude who has a British accent then a Russian one ( he was never to interesting so screw learning his name). Stahl is a amazing villain, or well he could have been, you see there is a six month gap in the middle of this game and i think it would have been cool, if in the middle of the game you played as Stahl for a bit maybe learned about the issue with his father that is mentioned constantly but nope they are going to ignore something they stressed through out the whole game.
Then we reach the second half of the game. this part SUCKED TO HIGH HEAVEN!
It all starts when they take you back to the beginning of the game which is really the middle of the game, and change things that happened at the beginning of the game. This is a short game so you will remember what the beginning of the game was like, this middle part should have been the ending, but no they want you to play for as long as possible. Then they do nothing with Stahl for most of the second half of the game. Thus the game continues, in what feels like the same level just with new skins. Even the fights suck in the second half of the game, cause you always feel like your in a tunnel shooting down at some of the stupidest AI. I am not kidding while you hide behind cover they will just stand in the open and shoot, even when they need to reload.
Over all think killzone 3 was ok,the physics were great and so was the story in the beginning, I really wish they had done better with the story towards the end. Maybe worked on the lip syncing a little more, and improved on their characters motives.
But I would think twice before buying. It feels like a rushed game overall.
