Killzone 3 vs. Bulletstorm

With the multitude of games coming out in 2011, which ones are really worth buying?

With the recent release of "Killzone 3" and "Bulletstorm," on the same day, are these games really worth your time and money?

Developed by People Can Fly and Epic Games, creators of "Gears of War" and "Unreal Tournament," "Bulletstorm" is a game that takes killing to a whole new level.

For every kill you get in the game, you earn a certain amount of points.

Easy enough. Maybe at first glance, but this game allows you to get creative with your kills. The more creative you are, the more points you earn, which then can be used to purchase upgrades and ammo.

To help your creativity, there are two weapons at your disposal: the leash and, well, your foot.

The leash pulls enemies towards you in slow motion to allow you to strategically kill with bullets or to just pull the enemy into an environmental kill, like a cactus.

Kicking enemies works like the leash, except, instead of your enemies coming towards you, they are pushed forward in slow motion.

Overall, "Bulletstorm" has a great gameplay experience but lacks where it really counts.

The story mode is great and has the oddest, but hilarious, dialogue.

The online experience for the game is good too and allows you and your friends to fight waves of enemies, but it gets old after a while.

"Bulletstorm" is worth playing, but is a game you should rent, not buy, because it gets boring after a while. Still, I give it an 8/10.

It is available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

"Killzone 3" is one of the most anticipated games for PS3 owners this year.

Developers Guerilla Games know how to make a shooter and "Killzone 3" is testament to that.

Gameplay is amazing. Everything has weight, which enhances combat.

When you shot your gun, the recoil from the gun feels real, as real as it can feel. Every aspect of this game works and feels right.

The story supplies loads of action and will put you in situations that are epic.

Graphics are amazing and "Killzone 3" fully utilizes the capabilities of the PS3.

The story is the only thing that falls short in the game.

"Killzone 2" took the opportunity to expand on the universe of "Killzone" and its characters.

But in "Killzone 3," you almost forget about the characters, playing off the fact that you’re provided with great gameplay.

Still, it is a must own for PS3 owners with a 9/10.

So, to sum it all up: "Killzone 3" is a game you will be playing until another great shooter comes out for PS3, while "Bulletstorm" is a cool idea, but lacks replay value.
