I recently downloaded the free Killzone
3 multiplayer trial to give it a spin, and to my surprise I've become really addicted! I'm generally not much of an online FPS fan, the last game I really got into was Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare
back when the online gameplay that if offered was fresh and exciting. Since then I've dabbled in a few other games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2
, and a little bit of COD: World At War
, but nothing really holds my interest for very long.
I think that what I like about Killzone 3
is the fact that it's not a "twitch" shooter. Your character has a definite sense of weight and momentum, and jumping takes a second or two to action so bunny hopping about the map isn't a viable option. Other than the demo I haven't actually played the Killzone 3
singleplayer, but I loved Killzone 2
so it hasn't taken me too long to fall back into the rhythm of the game and the weighty controls. I'm actually pretty good at the multiplayer in Killzone 3
! This is nice for a change, I'm generally kind of average at online shooters. My K/D ratio is about 0.8, and I'm up to rank 11 so far. Once I hit the rank 10 cap in the trial I was more than happy to pay to buy the full version, especially with the PSN+ discount.
It's early days yet, but I can't see myself getting bored of this game any time soon. Have any of you out there given the trial a go? If so, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
