Killzone: Shadow Fall
As a graphical showcase for the PS4, Killzone Shadow Fall fulfils its aim admirably; as a hardcore multiplayer monster to get the next-gen servers buzzing, it could well service those with FPS in the blood and maps on the mind; as a big blockbuster launch title, this is as big and blockbusting as the PS4 gets right now.
Yet as a slab of next-gen interactive entertainment, Killzone Shadow Fall left us a bit cold. Unnecessarily fiddly controls, confusing signposting and a story that's becoming increasingly forgettable the more serious it takes itself contribute to a stylistically showy game that can be difficult to engage with.
Once multiplayer is live in the UK, we'll see how it stacks up further, but for now we found ourselves enjoying the gun-packed, visually sumptuous meat at the campaign's middle, but not so much the precariously structured, implausibly plotted, poorly flagged-up sandwich constructed around it.
