This is my first review on this site so I thought I should do it for one thats been getting alot of talk lately, Resistance 2. Resistance 2 is based in a 1953 war torn united states. Its been up to debate lately that the developers at insomniac games went the halo route with the 2nd outing in the resistance franchise, i dont agree. Theres alot of things that Distinguish it self from being another generic FPS like the weapons for example. In this installment they add a good amount of new weapons such as the spider grenade and the revolver. At first sight the revolver may seem like an ordinary magnum but shoot some poor defenseless chimera and hit alt-fire. What do u see next? Nothing? Exactly, the alt-fire cause's the bullet to explode on its target. The spider grenade cause's what ever it touches to get burned. My personal favorite new weapon is the marksmen; what this weapon does shoo a three round burst, it also has a scope hence the name marksmen. The alt fire on this is and electrical burst that fly's through the air electrocuting enemies.
I know what most of you must be saying now, "well if its just the same thing with more weapons then why spend 30$ on it?" Well it doesn't just have new weapons it also has a completely new story new enemies like for example; grims, furies, leapers, spiners, and the almighty Leviathan! Thats not all new they completely reworked there multi-player to make it much more intuitive and easier to invite you friends to a party or join a clan! One of the best new things added is the 8 player co-op. You and 7 friends can get online or just you and a other friend can do split screen to fight hordes of chimerans or do special objectives that help flesh out the story.
One of my few gripes is no weapon wheel. This is a small gripe but can ruin it for some. I also miss the horror elements and dark atmosphere of the first game.
Overall this is a must have game who like'd the first one, is a fan of FPS's, or just owns a PS3! I can not praise this enough(well yah i can but that will take forever and i need to go to bed) Its that good! MUST BUY!
