Forums - Sony Discussion - Killzone Shadow Fall metacritic FLOP CONFIRMED: 73 on 17 reviews

Click here for Killzone's disappointing meta-score

Scoring lower than the same old Call of Duty game, and a Battlefield game with possibly the worst campaign in shooter history. Is there something wrong with review outlets? Or do they like the same thing every year?

Keep in mind, after reading and watching many reviews for Killzone, it certainly is no masterpiece. But it seems leagues above Battlefield and Call of Duty in terms of bringing something a little fresher to the table.

Thoughts?

Also: Knack flop confirmed.

I am disappoint

Don't Click teh Grunt

Hmm, Ghosts has a 74 on Metacritic and I think that Shadow Fall will reach 75/100. Still I don't think it is a flop since it is actually a real next-gen game and is miles ahead of those cross-gen games. Knack is flop though, Resogun is the surprise.

PS4 will sell 25 million units before 31st of March!

If you like the series you should buy it anyway! I think they are being a little harsh. Or maybe it's THAT bad. Either way you gotta try it to judge it!

A critical flop? Yes. Many people, myself included, expected a Metacritic average of at least around 8.5 even by the time we got the number of reviews we have now. Since I typically agree with the average, it looks like Killzone: Shadow Fall will be disappointing to me. I'm sure there are many right now who are just as surprised. However, I do wonder how this will affect sales. It would certainly not be the first time a game that didn't do so hot in the reviews went on to sell enough copies to be a commercial success and with the PS4 lacking any backup retail exclusives, since Knack apparently blows, Killzone may simply get those sales by default because of people who simply heard a lot about the game. Regardless, as far as retail games, this isn't a good start for Sony. Guerrilla Games is certainly not one of their top studios but based on their past games I think we all expected better than this.

Oh boy this gonna get ugly

 

Sales determine a flop, so the title makes no sense to me. Call of Duty might be a mediocre series for example, but even Ghosts will remain far FAR away from a flop, and so will killzone.

At least they are in 1080p......I still have mine preordered.

Next Gen Flops confirmed.
