We received a copy of Killzone: Mercenary a few weeks ago and as usual, because we're always so busy and the team small, we haven't been able to translate our full review for you guys. That being said, we wouldn't you to feel left out, so you're getting all our homemade screenshots, our off-screen gameplay footage and most importantly our verdict. Everything's inside so what are you still doing here?
Killzone: Mercenary is clearly worth your money if you own a Playstation Vita. It looks fantastic and plays just as well as the PS3 episodes, which proves once again that first person shooters have their place on a handheld. Story-wise, don't expect to deliver something as strong and immersive as titles like BioShock Infinite or The Last of Us, but if you like action games you won't be disappointed. It's just a shame that the melee attack are so cheated, making the game way too easy at times in normal mode. Other than that, you pretty much get the same experience as you'd expect from a first person shooter on PS3 or Xbox 360, which is impressive to say the least. The single player campaign is rather short as it took us about 6 hours and a half to reach the end but there is replayability to unlock all the weapons and armors, to complete the challenges which unlock after completing the game, etc. And there's multiplayer, which is also great fun from what we could see (we could only play the beta. In short, Killzone: Mercenary is a great action game for the Vita and the fans will be pleased, but on a more personal note, we think there is still something missing to make it memorable in the long term.
@GriftGFX: Before Europe will formulate an answer and come to a ppssible bill, we could be years away (39 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: No, the minister of justice is going to ask Europe for advice if the gambling in games should be banned. He thinks it should, but there is no bill drafted. (41 minutes ago)
@nostradamus: I played some of the maps on the free week they had and they weren't bad or maybe it was just me thinking that as I hadn't paid for them :P (1 Hour ago)
@aphex187: the beta map was awesome to play. (1 Hour ago)
BF1 season pass £11.99. Not a massive fan if this game or the series now but I could be tempted by that. (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: meanwhile the land of the free is trying to destroy the internet as we know it. (2 Hours ago)
They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (7 Hours ago)
