I gave in to temptation today and bought it! And I'm glad i did. The campaign so far has been pretty impressive stuff. Not sure about online play yet, but i never liked it on killzone 2 anyway... Also good to see co-op campaign mode offline too.

Anyone else bought this or rented it yet?

nice, i havent been following the news and i didnt know it had that feature... it was one of my favorite things in Resistance 1 (cant believe its been 4 years)...

I liked Killzone 2, the gameplay was good and online was fun, the only problem i had with it was that i couldnt get into the story very much, to be honest i cant even remember what it was about...

Im getting this but probably in a couple of weeks cause im still busy with other games.

I have it. I'm pretty happy with it. I have a busy semester so I haven't been able to play a lot sad.gif

there is a map pack already announced: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSykquq71EY

I am quite the opposite. I didn't care for the story but loved the online play.

I don't plan on picking up KZ3 anytime soon but maybe in the future. Maybe.

@Kamahl: The story in this one is intense. The levels are huge, epic and iconic, it'll be pretty hard to forget what has happened in this game.

@ENVi3: Yeah i think i saw a DLC on PSN the day of release, or it could have been a trailer for a DLC, i can't remember. I does seem a little too soon. Unless they're planning many DLC's they're getting it out way too early.

@Treefitty: I dunno why i didn't really get into the online. I think it's because there were so many other FPS games out at the time like Modern Warfare and Resistance 2, i preferred those and played them instead. I would like to get into this one online, but it has to have something cool enough to keep me interested.

The DLC that's out now is retro map packs, which are free if you pre-ordered (or maybe it's for everyone that bought a new copy). But yeah that new pack in the video seems so soon ... I hope it's free otherwise it's pretty lame since they could have probably included it in the disk.

I finally got round to completing the campaign today. I love how each level it more epic than the one before it. A little short, but that's to be expected with FPS games. Now i can start playing online see how that plays.

I think I'm going to have to play through again co-op with the misses though. I like the way co-op works in this game. Being able to revive each other like resistance 2 is a nice feat.

ENVi3, you completed it yet? What did you think of it?

I think I'm going to save this for when the price drops, My priorities for this month are Homefront, Crysis 2 and possibly Bulletstorm. Loved the multiplayer demo though, so I may change my mind yet.
DuPz0r
I'm not interested in Bulletstrom, but i am interested in Crysis 2!

i am interested in none of the above.. i played the demo of killzone 3 a couple weeks ago and was unimpressed... i just don't know what it is with FPS but, they are not at all interesting... the story never grabs me, and their EPIC moments aren't really special to me... i just don't know what it is... i never connect with the story or characters... it's like they are trying to take you on this epic ride but fail to keep it interesting along the way...

the demo tried to be epic and for some reason i never connected with the characters or to my mission... when i got my hands on the jet-pack thingy, it got even worse... this game is going for shock value, and it's failing miserably... after i finished the demo, i uninstalled it and never plan to play it again... i haven't played a single killzone and it seems like i am not missing much when it comes to a story... the story of 3 has been getting bashed by almost every reviewer since release... and that's a shame because, isn't 3 suppose to wrap up the trilogy?? or am i right to assume they are prolonging the ending for more sequels...

i hope it's a success for sony's sake... they need some bonafide FPSers in their arsenal... i think the general consensus is resistance is the flagship franchise in that department on the PS3... killzone is trying but, isn't quite living up to expectations...

Those aren't priorities for me, but those are the FPS's I'm considering buying this year. If I end up buying any of them, it will likely be Bulletstorm.

@DuPz0r
Yeah I beat it on Veteran and I guess I will try Elite eventually, but we'll see.
The story was OK, but in a FPS the basic idea is to just shoot your way through and get to another cut-scene, etc.. Some of those cut-scenes obviously tried to be exciting but they were just kind of awkward. But the campaign game play itself was pretty fun. I like how they changed it up from normal shoot-your-way-through to other stuff like stealth and focusing on different weapons and vehicles, etc. The ending sucked ... It really just kind of ended abruptly and they tried to leave a off with a cliffhanger too.

With that being said, most people buy FPS just for the Online mainly, and so far that's been pretty fun except there are some pretty bad balancing issues. It's not uncommon to see a 9vs4 or a 5vs2 game. It sucks and I know I joined a game once and it put me on the team that already had the most people. Operations is tons of fun, but there's only 3 maps for that game mode currently =/
DuPz0r
Yeah i was really disappointed with the ending, especially with the huge build up and crazy change in game play type towards the end. I also felt the cutscenes were lacking anything decent to get excited about. Saying that, i will most likely go and complete it on Elite with my misses.

I still haven't bothered playing online yet, but i will eventually.

My brother in law rented this for a week, but he's gone out tonight so I've got it. I am going to try and get as much of the campaign done as I can and if I like it, I might rethink.
DuPz0r
You should be able to complete it in one sitting tbh. I completed it with a friend in less than 5 hours on veteran the other day...
ENVi3
New patch was released http://www.dualshocknexus.com/2011/03/kill...s-now-live.html
reading through the list some of these made me happy tongue.gif
The only bummer is they haven't fixed the map rotation yet ...
