Killzone Vita's multiplayer is poisonous and I love it

I initially scoffed towards every bit of this explanation of Killzone: Mercenary's multiplayer systems. I don't much care for multiplayer, so why should I care that offline singleplayer progress yields weapons and stats that...

Killzone: Mercenary pleases me in gameplay demo video

One of my biggest concerns with Killzone: Mercenary was that we'd be made to swipe across the touch screen for every melee attack. Breaking the way one holds a PS Vita for shooter games in order to drag a finger along the ce...

Killzone: Shadow Fall looks like a strong launch title photo
Killzone: Shadow Fall looks like a strong launch title
by Brett Makedonski

One of the titles that Sony's putting on a pedestal for the PlayStation 4 launch is Killzone: Shadow Fall. With good reason too. Shadow Fall is shaping up to be the type of game that is actually worthy of ushering in a new generation of consoles. Something that makes us say "Oh, this where videogames are going"".

The most immediate impact that Shadow Fall makes is with its graphics. All the hardware that's packed into a PS4 makes for a hell of a visual experience. The game is simply stunningly beautiful in the one outdoor environment that I was able to play. It was hard not to sit still at moments to take in the skyline, water, and cliffsides.

Fortunately, the excellent graphics are backed by what appears to be an enticing game design. It seems that every level will be open-ended, with different objectives scattered throughout. This leaves the player in the position of being able to methodically approach levels as they choose. However, it's not immediately clear whether these objectives will always be clearly laid out, or if it will require familiarization with the level to know where to go.

Killzone: Mercenary is the FPS the Vita has been needing photo
Killzone: Mercenary is the FPS the Vita has been needing
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The PlayStation Vita is a great system with a slowly increasing library of great titles. The exception being in the first-person shooter genre, that is.

You'd think that after one of these big game companies made a handheld with two joysticks that there would be a bigger incentive to create more first-person experiences. Instead, we've gotten only a few first-person shooters to date: Resistance: Burning Skies was a joke, and Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified was an insult.

I recently went hands-on with Killzone: Mercenary for the Vita, and based on what I saw, it could finally be the FPS the Vita has been so badly needing. It's hard to say this early on if it's a must-own, but my early impressions are at least far more favorable compared to the previous two disasters.
