X-Play Hands-On: Resistance 2 'Multiplayer'

X-Play had a chance to play Resistance 2 multiplayer for about an hour at E3 2008 and it's looking good. They believe they were playing against bots, but if they were human opponents, X-Play wrecked them. This, unfortunately, does not speak highly for the game's bot AI or Insomniac's play testers.

On the plus side, the game is incredibly fun. Insomniac has refined the core gameplay of Resistance multiplayer with weapon loadouts that create 'soft' classes. At the start of a round and between respawns you can select from different primary weapons and a single 'power' or 'perk'.

few months left to tweak the game. it would be great if they too had a beta for resistance 2.

Insomniac has not put a bad game out yet with Resistance Fall of Man and Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction - both AAA titles. I trust they will do right.

of course they have not put a bad game out yet they are ps3 only developers so they can not create a flop such as too human ninja gaiden and such

Maybe graphically,and if so.Just barely

5vs5 MP and what is it 2 player co op?

8 player co op.Im sorry,but it really doesnt.

5 player co-op? MAY BE WRONG HERE FOLKS, can't remember, swear I heard it though O_o

But! I think Resistance will be more fun <333

And Cop-Boy:

it is 5 player co-op, but only for "Horde" mode. Players fight off wave, after wave of locust enemies.

Campaign, however, allows 2 player co-op.

Than how do you explain the first Gears 4vs4 beating the first Resistance 20vs20??? The first Gears won every best multiplayer award for that year. It slaughtered Resistance.

Resistance 1 was lame as hell,i only played the multiplayer twice.
COD4 completly overshadowed it (for me anyways)

But R2 is gonna be great,it has a completly different 8 player co op campaign then single player,with perks,classes,squads,300ft monster(s)

its gonna be great,as will gears 2.Im just looking more forward to resistance 2

Resistance 1 was my first fps I played and after buying games like COD4 since I still regard Resistance 1 as my favourite and the best.

i completely agree i feel sorry for xbots they will never get to play this masterpiece

Meus Renaissance3561d ago

I'm not worried about the game's core features at all. This is Insomniac people, they never fail.

QueefyB3561d ago

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3561d ago
