Synopsis and Features
The story of Killzone 3 starts where Killzone 2 left off. The death of Emperor Visari doesn’t mean that the war is over, far from it. Moreover, you are in much deeper trouble as with Visari dead a political storm is brewing. You are behind enemy lines and trying to win a war with limited supplies and no re-enforcements. Helghast battalions are marching towards you. You have to creative, calculative and downright ruthless if you have to win. But to win, you must survive first, can you?
Developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, Killzone 3 has many improved features than the previous games. The game also allows the use of the PlayStation Move controller. Playing with the Move adds in extra interactivity as you can use the controller to move your character and shoot enemies using it.
The single-player campaign of the series takes you through the ravaged lands of Helghast as you fight enemy soldiers to keep yourself alive.

The combat is the highlight of Killzone 3 as it is more intense and savage than other shooters in the market. The new feature in the game includes the ability to use jetpacks. This is an interesting addition as even enemy soldiers can use this feature, requiring you to be precise while shooting them down.

You can be shooting someone hiding behind a wall and enjoying it while getting killed in the exact same fashion. The game has impressive and intelligent AI. Co-players within the game respond well and are fairly accurate while shooting enemies. The game will be a treat for 3D lovers as you can play it in 3D as well.
