It's easy to lose sight of the developers or series who spend more time in development or rotation than a year; like some seasonal sports game. Killzone is one such franchise - a first-person shooter that shares retail space with the likes of Call of Duty or Battlefield, but tries to differentiate itself as best it can.

Killzone 3 is one of the prettiest games you'll play this generation. It also has addictive multiplayer, and even 3D if you're capable of utilising it. It's just that with all of this, it still steers clear of being more than it really can be, even after exploring such possibilities this time around. In short the series needs to stop being such a tease...

Did you try using the PS3 Move controller? I've bought the game from OzGameStore, but I'm wondering if I should get the PS3 Move for it as well. Metroid Prime 3's controls were awesome, save for the limitations of the Wii remote. I was hoping to know how Killzone's offering stacks up.

Midda, nah, actually that's one thing I didn't get a chance to do... I think Metroid works better for something like that though, Killzone is more frantic and frenetic, I can't see Move heightening the experience at all

I dunno, I can imagine it potentially working will in my head, if that makes sense. Hell, it'd be better suited to frantic movement than a gamepad. It really all depends on the implementation. I've read that the options screen lets you configure the Move settings pretty finely, so I'm cautiously optimistic, but I'd still like to hear something first-hand about it first.

Was a terrible game. Was watching a friend play, and by god the AI was horrible. Literally 2 feet away, and they wouldnt heal you or revive you. They'd just yell "CAN'T GET TO YOU!". The guns were clunky and eh, and the overall impression was just really bad.

Yeah I've never been a fan of the KZ series. I played through two while just barely keeping my eyes open.
Game is pretty but oh so monotonous.

undecided on the move controller, I think its something you need a lot of paitence with and to dedicate a lot of time to before you can decide if its worth it or not. It's really counter intuitive especially for someone uncoordinated like myself to move my hand to the right while pushing left on the sub controller, in effect strafing around a corner. That said I probably had the same issues with a mouse controller when I first started pc gaming.

I think it will also require a lot of tweaking on the users part, its setup to not move the screen until you reach the edge of a hitbox. so you can play it kind of time crisis like. stand still and pick off targets. I havent tried it but worth making hitbox like 0%(if possible) so it moves the screen with every movement of the gun, could make for a very shaky vision.

There are plenty of Wii games which have shown it to be a very good alternative to a gamepad. The Move has the potential to do a much better job than the Wii remote.

As if this game doesn't look completely awesome, who cares if it retains the same formula as the 2nd one, i think it's good to play it safe sometimes, something the Halo franchise had done pretty consistently.. Otherwise mistakes like Halo ODST happen, big mistakes..

I actually quite enjoyed ODST. On the contrary though, I've never enjoyed a Killzone game. I tried the second one and I agree with Enska, it put me to sleep.

I got a PS3 Move today as I had a JB Hifi voucher and I was curious. I started playing through single player with it on the default settings, and found it to be a bit awkward to use. I stuck with the default settings for a while to see if I just needed to get used to it. It got easier, but it still felt a bit off. I started tweaking the settings, and now after settling on something and playing for a couple of hours online, I definitely feel glad I got it. While it certainly isn't a replacement for a keyboard and mouse, it's loads better than the gamepad. I got s***loads of killstreaks online largely due to me being able to aim a lot faster than most other players. They still have their aim assist though, so it kind of balances out.

The only thing I don't like about it is the melee gesture (you thrust the Move toward the screen). It's easy enough to do, but I ended up facing the floor or the sky fairly regularly after each melee. The relead gesture is pretty good though (quick twist of the Move).

I reckon it'd be better still if I had the navigation controller. I'm just using the Move in one hand and the Dual-Shock in the other. Feels a little unbalanced holding the controller with one hand, but it's not too bad when you're leaning back on the lounge with your hand resting on your lap.

Yeah I worked on it, I did the level design for the "Stahl Arms" SP level.

Me and 1 other guy were the only Aussies on the KZ3 team. We did just have a 3rd guy join us a week or so ago.

Also, next patch will allow move users to assign melee to button.
