While the first-person shooter field has had its biggest stars show up year after year, Guerrilla Games has always used a patient, tempered approach when releasing new entries in the Killzone franchise. Even though it's been around for nearly as long as Microsoft's Halo series, Killzone hasn't quite reached the same stratospheric status among gamers. With its latest entry, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Guerrilla once again revisits the conflict the villainous Helghast bring wherever they go, only this time it's in conjunction with the launch of a new Sony console. Though the choice of exclusives was slim at launch, Killzone: Shadow Fall is a more than worthy way to kick off the PlayStation 4's emergence. Even if it is a bit dull at times.
Killzone: Shadow Fall
Thirty years after the events of the original Killzone trilogy, the Helghast are up to their old tricks, and seek to conquer a new world.
The move to digital versions of games has been a long time coming, but the size of next-gen titles on the PlayStation 4 might be counter-intuitive for those looking to save of hard drive space.
