I need a little help deciding which game to make my first PS4 purchase when I pick up my system next week. I have 3 top choices for which games i'm interested in until the next exclusives launch later.
So based on you guys opinions and experience in all 3 games listed, which do you recommend I pick up first?
Even though I'm a COD fan I would say you can't go wrong with either BF4 or KZ:Shadow Fall. There has been some noticeable changes to COD, but at the core it's the same game I've been playing since 2007.
It's still a great game but it's something that you can wait to get once it hits the bargain-ben.
I would go with BF4 for online play. COD is great and the maps are much larger than previous games but it still plays and feels the same as always. BF4 when it works well is pretty awesome. I haven't tried the story yet. The china rising maps are pretty cool. Killzone looks great, I played the first hour or so and was very happy with everything I had seen. I will definitely go back to it. I played the Multiplayer for only a little bit but what i saw was very interesting but not quite the scale of BF4. I think you'll be happy with all of them but for me BF4 has spent the most time in my drive.
Whatever you want... but since you want opinions, I'd personally play an exclusive first, just because. I plan on having Infamous: Second Son being my first PS4 game. Of those games you listed, I only plan on playing Killzone. But I'm not hugely into online FPS anymore, so you might be better off with Cod of BF, depending on the type of experience you prefer.
It really depends on what genre you enjoy and how you want to play it. If you want online multi-player play and enjoy FPS then the best option is BF4. This will keep you entertained and ensure you get your monies worth if you enjoy this type of thing.
For predominant offline play then if you enjoy sports games FIFA 14 or NBA 2k14 are excellent entries and will keep you going, or if you want something with more exploring and open world try AC4.
I would hold off until Infamous Second Son, but if you're really intent on one of those 3 I'd reccommend Killzone. While the single player isnt anything special the use of abilities and perks in the multiplayer can make for a lot of fun! Out of all the three fps mp shooters out at launch I personally had the most with Killzone's.
Assassin Creed 4 Black Flag first. The water and effects is awesome on the PS4, and it's a beautiful large open world with plenty of things to do. Then recommend Thief. I picked up both BF4 and COD Ghosts, pretty disappointed in them both. They don't feel really next gen to me. They are fun (when BF4 works 10% of the time), but they won't WOW you.
If you're looking for "DAT NEXT GEN" feel, go for Killzone: Shadowfall.
Mind you, if you are an avid PC gamer with an awesome PC rig, you're probably won't be blown away. But if you've been mainly a console gamer, the game will blow you away and would most likely have your jaw drop from the moment you boot up the game.
My jaw was dropped throughout most of my play through - with the exception of certain levels.
But don't expect a stellar game all throughout the campaign, it'll be a hit on a lot of parts; and a miss on some minor parts.
And in all honesty, a LOT of the complaints of the game - such as not enough directions on what to do - is really an awful complaint. I enjoyed the fact that they DIDN'T let me know what i had to do all the time, it let me explore the carefully crafted world the designers created; and the world is quite bloody beautiful.
....with exception to certain levels. I just can't stress that enough.
Please, private message me when you understand what levels im referring to, i'd love to chit chat about how rushed those few levels felt like.
But this is DEFINITELY a game you WANT to show off to your friends and be proud to see their jaws drop.
