From the Review: "...Speaking to Eurogamer this month, Ted Price said that his team wanted to get a new series ready for the console's launch because that's the best time to establish one. Well, it's appropriate that they opted for a warring theme, because anybody who buys into Resistance will be left fighting off mutant mentalists on two fronts: in the game, and on the Internet, where the Xbox Jugend will never let it lie. However the game does critically, it simply will not be allowed to be good. It won't matter that this is nearly an excellent first-person shooter; it will just matter that it doesn't quite get there.
Resistance's principal strength is its weapons, and the better ones will do a good enough job of selling it to PlayStation 3's early adopters, while, helpfully, European gamers are in a position to wait and see how the multiplayer develops between now and March before factoring that into any sort of decision. The Fall of Man may forever be overshadowed by the Internet's Fall of Manners, then, but this is still a solid launch title, and worthy of praise"
