The above video is a simple debut trailer continuing the story of Guerrilla’s space war franchise. And while I can say that I kinda dig their take on a universe fighting against asthmatic space Nazis, I can’t help but get a tingling sensation that we’ve seen this all before. For those that remembered the infamous ’Killzone 2’ gameplay demo leading up to PS3 release you might get a sense of “been there, done that, next please.”
At any rate, last night’s gameplay footage shows off a little bit of what to expect from the next ’Killzone’ and it does have some nice visuals neat ideas, but it does look a little too “directed” in some parts. Still, this is super early to make any calls and really I want to play some fun games whenever PS4 launches. Below is the full demo with the good stuff happening a couple of minutes in to the clip.
So let’s make short checklist about what we just saw:
— Aerial entrance with a nice view of a futuristic setting. Check!
— First person POV as some VIP. Check!
— Terrorist launched explosion throwing the peaceful citizens into chaos. Check!
— VIP mysteriously now holding a gun, jumping into the fray mowing down baddies! Check mate!
Hmm, seems par for the course for shooters. Taking my tongue out my cheek, it does look somewhat exciting and as I said earlier I really dug into “Killzone 2’s” methodical yet very engaging multiplayer that merged parts of “Battliefield” with “Halo,’ while “Killzone 3” seemed to wobble a bit as a whole package. Here’s just hoping that Guerrilla can strike a nice balance with quick action and amazing visuals when the PS4 launches.
