    Killzone is still breathtaking, but a 4-hour campaign and a lack of anything new make this a disappointing follow up.

    Killzone 3

    Killzone is still breathtaking, but a 4-hour campaign and a lack of anything new make this a disappointing follow up.

    The initial hype for each of the previous two Killzone games reached extreme highs, and each game responded to the hype differently. The first game in the series was an admirable, visually impressive shooter with some bl... Read Full Review
