Killzone 3 Review Round-up


Gary Steinman , Editor in Chief for PlayStation: The Official Magazine, stopped by the official PlayStation blog and has shared some very exciting news. Killzone 3 has received the perfect 10.0.

Gary: There is no such thing as a perfect game. Any and all games come with their assortment of quirks and quibbles, slight shortcomings and trifling blemishes.That said, Killzone 3 comes pretty gosh darn close to perfection.

The magazine not only features the Killzone 3 review, but an extensive look at MotorStorm: Apocalypse, Uncharted 3 and Tactics Ogre. Look for it on news stands February 15th. I’m extremely eager to get my hands on the single player side of this beast! This news just gets me even more pumped for launch day.

GameTrailers has given Killzone 3 a 9.4. You can watch the video review here.

IGN has given the game an 8.5, along with awarding it the Editors choice award. To read the review, click here.

Gamespot has followed IGN’s score with an 8.5, stating “Weighty shooting action and magnificent visuals collide in this great follow-up.

As of this posting, the Metacritic score is 86/100.

    Disapointed in many of the reviews from IGN and Gamespot and G4 giving it a 4. The game looks great, as far as we know from the demo (exclusive to PSN+ members this week only, released for everyone else next week), well I know the gameplay is great, here and there glitches, but like they said not everything is perfect. From the Beta, just by playing 1 map non-stop, kinda says alot of how awesome it is, if we were given just a slice of the game, and we already addicted then think what will happen in 2 weeks at launch.

    Many are bashing on the campaign, about how there are so many holes, um I really don’t there are that many. If it did, it would score less. And I mean after how bad Black Ops campaign was crap, and it high *** scores, um I think KZ3 deserves alot more credit. And come look at BOs graphics looks like a PS2 game.

    G4 giving it a 4 is basically a 9 in their rating system. Nothing wrong with that.

    I thought 4 1/2 was a 9? they dont do 8.5 stuff its whole numbers.

    don’t understand the 8’s seems like this game is better than CoD

    reviews are just opinions, and what is the difference between 8.5 and 9 anyway lol

    and also I think you need to read the actual review and not look at the numbers. IGN marked it down because of the bad story, we havent even played the game yet, they have.

    WOW what a shocker. The Official PS Magazine gave it a 10! Did they even play the game or just tried to please somebody?

    LOL Thats exactly what I was thinking.. Didn’t GOW3 get a 10 as well?? And LBP? and Resistance 3? Oh wait thats not reviewed yet!

  9. #9 by Luke on February 9th, 2011

    Yeah I am pretty sure that Uncharted 2 also got a 10 and LBP 2 did as well. Let me guess MotorStorm: Apocalypse is also getting a 10???

    I just got my Mag today and honestly if I have to read such biased crap I might as well not even renew my copy. Good thing I got a years subscription through Amazon for $5.

    Yup they got 10s. Deserved them in my opinion. I cant find anything wrong with god of war and uncharted. :)

    I can’t seem to get into a game lol… Needless to say, I’m not that impressed. Maybe I’ll give it another shot tonight.

  13. #13 by Luke on February 10th, 2011 [ 27382 Points ]

    I love Uncharted 2, it was an amazing game but the point here is that they give out perfect 10’s as if they were changing socks.

    So true. All PS exclusives always get 10s.

    But IGN is being rather harsh on their reviews lately.

    That cover says that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was reviewed. Does anyone know what the review score was?

  16. #16 by Jonaskin on February 10th, 2011

    IGN gave it the same score as they did Black Ops, and nobody moans that Black Ops was a bad game. In my opinion the Campaign is probably the best of any COD game actually.

    86 on Metacritic is still a solid score. KZ2 was a great game, I’m sure KZ3 will be too. The reviews that say the story is bad don’t really put me off either, KZ2 didn’t have much of a story anyway. I’ve heard the campaign is short (6ish hours) from some reviews, but then so was Modern Warfare 2. As long as it shines as a complete package, which I’m sure it will, it’ll be a worthy purchse. Plenty of other FPS games have similar faults.

    Playing in Botzone for couple of weeks now as a “Medic” whiched helped my team win consistently while I racked up 10,000 points in Trooper mode. Killzone3 is a awesome game that gives a player an adrenaline rush each time. If you drop in look me up as alohaboy50, I’m game to get there each time to be competitive & at the same time just to have lots of fun. KZ3 is a 10 in my book.
