One of the Playstation 4’s launch games is Killzone Shadowfall. This game is a first person shooter, this is one of Sony’s famous franchises. However, unlike its predecessors this is a new type of Killzone. Visually, the game is stunning. The game is more of a technical tester to the power of the Playstation 4. The game uses the controller’s touch pad, wherein the player summons an electronic owl that provides assistance in battle. The owl can be used in stealth gameplay as well. For Killzone fans they will certainly love this game.
In its own way, Killzone has fun mechanics but it doesn’t revolutionize gaming, it’s just like your ordinary shooter. The story’s not that special and sometimes the AI of the game can become quite the annoying. Killzone brings nothing new but it’s not that bad of a game. Its visuals and graphical power is its strength, showcasing the capabilities and strengths of the Playstation 4’s GPU. Killzone’s difficulty level may vary depending on the skill of the player. As the game progresses, the player will encounter more stronger enemies and difficult environment mishaps, whether it’s through the sky or on land, the game tests the players skills. The aforementioned OWL is slick and it really feels that you’re in a futuristic world.
Playing Killzone Shadowfall is mostly a fun and satisfying experience. There are a lot of things happening in the game, environments collapsing, enemies shooting at you from left to right. The game’s intense and at the same time calm when you’re inside warehouses and abandoned buildings. If you love shooter games, you will definitely have a great time with Killzone Shadowfall. Shadowfall’s roster of locations and sights are pleasantly diverse. You won’t feel that a certain area is copy pasted or something. Clearly, the developers of the game did a swell job in creating the world of Shadowfall. The world is well made and eye candy. Aside from its visual prowess, the game’s controls are smooth as butter. The Dualshock 4’s controls are perfect, you’ll notice that the triggers now are much more better than its predecessor. Shooting games aren’t that awkward anymore compared to the last generation. If you want to dive into the world of Killzone Shadowfall, then check this game out. For a launch game, it’s decent and for older fans of the series, be prepared for something new.
