Should You Buy Sony’s Recent PS3 HD Collections?

October 26, 2012Written by Anthony Severino

Killzone Trilogy

What is it? The Killzone Trilogy—just as its name implies—features the PS3 blockbusters Killzone 2 and Killzone 3, as well as a HD remaster of the original PS2 Killzone.

You should buy the Killzone Trilogy if: …you like to shoot things. The Killzone franchise is the PlayStation 3’s Halo-killer, despite not actually killing Halo. The game has some solid mechanics, unique weapons and enemies, epic moments, and more. Anything you could want out of a shooter. Both Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 were impressive games, both graphically and in gameplay, and if you happened to miss them, they’re worth picking up this Collection for alone. Killzone HD, however…

You should NOT buy the Killzone Trilogy if: …you already have Killzone 2 and Killzone 3. Really. Killzone HD hasn’t aged well at all, and no HD sprucing can save it from mediocrity. Plus, if you really must try it, you can always pick up Killzone HD separately on the PlayStation Network for $14.99.

Still not sure? Read our review of Killzone 2 and Killzone 3. Killzone HD review forthcoming.
