Even with a lacking plot and lack of online Co Op, Killzone 3 is a fantastic shooter and a must play for PS3 owners. The visuals are crisp, the performance is solid, and the game in all aspects is just plain fun. Whether you are looking for a game to sink hours into multi-player or just looking for something to try out that new PS Move you got recently, this is a game is worth every penny.

Toujours aussi éblouissante techniquement, la saga Killzone change ici légèrement d'orientation en adoptant certains standards des FPS dits modernes : les déplacements sont moins lourds qu'auparavant, les décors plus variés, et l'action très diversifiée, au risque peut-être d'irriter les fans de la première heure. Il faut toutefois reconnaître que l'ensemble reste d'une efficacité redoutable, grâce notamment à l'intelligence artificielle des ennemis qui donne lieu à des affrontements mémorables, et à une cohésion des séquences bien travaillée, tout juste troublée par la narration un tantinet décousue. Bref, nous sommes là en présence de l'un des tout meilleurs FPS de la PS3, qui saura vous séduire aussi bien en solo que face à vos amis sur la toile. Un incontournable pour les fans du genre !

Oh, and it's taken three games, but the team at developer Guerrilla Games has finally provided players with the definitive Killzone multiplayer experience. While the action is largely the same as in Killzone 2, some notable additions improve upon the non-combat elements. Being able to just spend your earned points on gear is a big plus, as is the dialed-back class selection (Killzone 2's spread felt a bit bloated). I'm also a big fan of the new Operations mode, which plays out almost like a large-scale, head-to-head co-op match, complete with cut-scenes. Between that and the still-entertaining Warzone mode, PS3 fans will find enough to keep them happy until the inevitable Killzone 4. Maybe that will be the game to finally make me fall in love with the series.

Une très bonne note que certains jugeront sans doute trop sévère mais qui tient avant tout à la nature de la campagne solo, plus courte, très convenue et sans doute moins prenante que celle de son aîné en dépit d'une poignée de séquences chocs. Car le fait est que Killzone 3 est avant tout une gueule, un FPS à la réalisation époustouflante qui laisse parfois le joueur épuisé, mais rarement surpris. Doté d'une fantastique atmosphère, Killzone 3 s'avère en effet trop sage pour faire vraiment grimper aux rideaux les boulimiques de FPS. Le titre constitue néanmoins un excellent défouloir et une belle vitrine technologique pour la machine de Sony. On attend impatiemment la suite.

Sadly, Killzone 3 misses the mark on too many occasions to be considered a good game. It’s at best a functional title that looks quite pretty. Lamentably, when compared to the masters of the genre, ‘functional’ just doesn’t cut it. Killzone 3 has done a great job of blending back in with the crowd. It’s precise, practical, ticks boxes and has been too quick to shed its defining credentials; credentials that made the earlier games a must buy for any enthusiast. Killzone 3 feels generic, rushed and greatly unloved by its creators. A huge, huge disappointment.

All in all, Killzone 3 is mediocre. it has its moments of excitement and visual splendor, but the game lacks polish and I never felt comfortable with the controls.
