X-Play reviews the epic, sci-fi, alternate-American history FPS Resistance 2 from Insomniac for the PS3. How will it stack up to its predecessor?
liked the game. It was a plebiscit more than a review.
the first unbiased review. BTW Sony no longer owns the San Francisco Metreon. It was sold to the biggest mall player Westfield.
It had a doll. Or action figure. They're all dolls to me. I won't open it. I'll probably sell it or something. It came with a code to get a bonus skin for the online. I was going to give the code away, but my brother would probably want it.
for a great game. Maybe the days of the PS3 bias are gone. I'm still surprised at the 1up score but the guy that reviewed the game nitpicked the game to death.
...on a retail copy I have to say it's an amazing game especially for fans on the first R:FOM. I don't know anyone personally that hasn't played the first R:FOM so I don't know how much they'd enjoy it. Anyway I know I will be having lot's of fun with this title for a very long time. Now to pick up LBP next month, Val.Chronicles in January, and Killzone2 in February :)
I think 1up had fairly good arguments. If you watch the 1up show you can see the reviewer and two other guys discussing R2. It's quite interesting, and if what they say is true then I must say I'm a bit disappointed as well. The single-player lacks identity and feels like a bunch of stuff mashed together, rather than one great experience. Anyway, B+ is still a good score. The other guy on the 1up show (David Ellis) said on the 1up yours podcast that, that's what he would've given the game. B+ or A-, flip a coin. And it sounded like he didn't like the single-player, but the multiplayer was so good it kinda makes up for it (naming mostly the co-op). Anyway, it seemed they all would agree that it was an improvement over the first one on all levels.
...that reviewed R2 is just a nitpicker. He did the same thing with Dead Space if you watch that review http://gamevideos.1up.com/v... From this video I just think he's a nitpicker and it has nothing to do with this particular game.
Finally, he wasnt biased and liked a very deserving game it's right. I remember those reviews when they hailed the 360 like it was some crystal meth injected in their bloodstream, especially that review about the baseball game that was severely not finished yet but they gave it high reviews.
Insomniac never sleeps on the AAA.
feel they have to be as negative as possible to justify themselves. "I'm a reviewer and I'm so keen to games that I'm going to point out every single flaw in the game until you don't even wonder if it's fun or not." Give me a break. If the complaints are small, then why are you bringing them up? This is directed to 1up btw. The game lacks identity? Are you fighting locus? Are the guns not Insomniac-esque? Cmon guy. Reviewers constantly punish a game for not improving, for sticking to it's own world and not looking to what other games did that improved upon the genre. Yet here comes R2 and borrows from great games and still maintains it's own identity but we're told it's lacking one? It's enough already. If someone makes an AAA shooter, I want the Insomniac guys to play it. At the same time I don't want Gears of Resistance. I think they nailed it with the way they did it. But whatever. Let these guys be the dweebs they are. They're the same guys that go out of their way to knock a game when the publisher doesn't deliver on every single promise. The guy discussing the game on the 1up podcast actually bished that they got the game 3 days before the review. Wahh Wahh Wahhh. Can't play a friggin videogame in 3 days? /rant
this is expected from Adam Sessler. the guys at G4 are not only Insomniac Fanboys (in a good way), but they also gave their last 2 games a 5 out of 5. I say congrats to Insomniac on making the Resistance Franchise well known in the Playstation Community, not to mention Ratchet and clank.
Insomniac Games will continue to deliver jaw-dropping AAAA masterpieces on Ps3
dude you name is brilliant in a good and not so good way
almost completed the single player campaign I think...the game deserves nothing less than a 9 imo...especially considering what the overall goal of the entire game was to begin...which was push console multiplayer to new limits (accomplished without question), and improve on everything from the first game...which it also does... it isn't the best looking title on the SP3 overall, especially in multiplayer...but its years (no pun intended) better than fall of man...the lighting is the only thing that I have issues with...the new dynamic lighting is excellent, and low light areas with the flashlight on (which now creates awesome looking siren like shadows around everything in the environment) is awesome...but the baked lighting outside gets some question marks from me...there will be realistic shadows around somethings, like cars and crates or buildings or whatever...but then something right next to it, in plain line from the sun or whatever light source...that is missing a shadow...also some of the baked lighting has no effect on other players, or your weapon...as in when you walk under some lighting, you see it realistically casted over your weapon dynamically, which looks awesome...yet at other times walking into a shadow does absolutely nothing, and your weapon blooms just like its in direct sun light... small complaint I know...and its much better than fall of man, of which that was my biggest issue with the graphics...but its a shame they didn't have an extra month to polish that stuff up a little more...the game is simply inconsistant at times, thats all...some areas look absolutely incredible...others look very halo 3'ish...about half way through the game is when the visuals hit the low point, then come back considerably there after... and yeah...59 other human controlled players on screen at once will obviously have to make some corner cutting to the visuals...online maps the lighting is generally very simple, making everything appear cartoony at times...its still a blast though...but because of these small issues, I can't agree with any perfect scores...I know perfect doesn't mean 'perfect'...it means there is no real way to improve upon what was released...and an extra month would probably have allowed all these little things to be remedied... although I did get into the Killzone 2 beta last night...and the fact that the online part of K2 looks immensely better than any other game's (save possibly MGS4) single player component...might be screwing up my judgement...I would recommend waiting to play Killzone 2 until you are finished with any other shooter you currently are enjoying...because once you try it, there is no going back...
Res 2 is awsome
You can tell he was thinking "God I cant believe the producers want me to play Gears of War 2 on Friday instead of Resistance 2,how do I get out of this hmmm maybe if I call in sick I'll be able to stay home and complete the epic journey of Nathan Hale"
Hes a paid video game host who actually has a life and doesn't think "RESISTANCE VS GEARS 2! TEH BIG SHOEDOWN!!!!111" Edit: Oh god no. Looks like BADJOYSTICK is another one of that loser Nasim's clones.
Sounds like they where really impressed with R2. Still wouldn't have stoped me from picking up this gem.
I have R2 and Gears2 and guess what, tomorrow I'm getting COD5, yes we get games most of the time like 1 week before the world
My experience with COD5 multiplayer gives me the impression that it is like COD4 in WWII setting but with worse graphics. I'd go with just Gears 2 and Resistance 2.
All the games that are coming out and getting great reviews are crazy. Its bittersweet because I'm a college student wasting my money on a stupid education when I could be buying some of these great games.
i might have to sell a kindey on topic the two reviewers i trust most game informer 8.5 xplay 5/5 = one happy gamer :)
In this economy its better to prolong your stay in school than graduate. So go ahead and play more games, fail a few classes. Its for your own good.
whoever say 60 vs 60 required no skill and too chaotic, obviously suck at the game. edit: 30 vs 30.. YEAH YEAH Breakfast..it's a typo. get over it or you would like a bacon with that?
lol How bout you actually play the game first.
60 vs 60? lol How bout you actually play the game first. ----------------------------- ------------------------------ ----------------------- ------------------------------ --------- If you care about my opinion 30 v 30 with squads is extremely fun. most on the time you are battling 6 v 6 but it changes so you never get bord. you should try the gand before you make silly comments like that again.
Maybe its fact that i cant read what you write... or maybe its the fact that i dont know wtf youre talking about. What silly comment? sigh...just go down to one bubble already.
his comment was the only one that made scents to me. i just bubbled him back up. the only mistake he made was he spelled game wrong. your mistakes. youre = you're bout = about What silly comment? sould not have a (?) IM sure that you well make this changes but i well leave them here any why so everyone can see how silly you are. LoL
What silly comment? What do you mean should not have an a? wtf? I spelled, about, right. No edits, no nothing. Dude, you just confused me 10 times more. Wow....go back to the fifth grade, will you please.
10 times more. LOL what a silly way to place you words
Breakfast, just go eat your bacon and sunny side and move along.. No pancake for you.
"his comment was the only one that made scents to me." It made "SCENTS" to him? LOLOLOLOL I'm sorry but this just made me laugh so hard. Nothing against you bud. It's just reeeeeally funny! :D ROFL Not only does the game look good, sound good, it also SMELLS good! That's how great it is!
hahaha I didn't notice that lol. Very nice!
None of you made any sense. You all failed miserably at what you were trying to achieve. The lot of you could not spell if your life depended on it. This makes me get the feeling that some of you shouldn't be gaming but rather completing your education.
itz kool 2 b in skool
LOL Gaystation 3 is a FLOP. PS3rd= Last Place FLOP. Resistance 2 = NOT EVEN A 90% on Metacritic. PS3rd= Pathetic garbage. Gears 2 = GOTY '08
because resistance 2 got a 5 out of 5 on X-Play? wow.... /Facepalm...
...Fail. Gotta run back and fetch your other account Maverick? Double fail! Shame on you! >_<
So Metacritic is okay but the actual site you are posting on which has it's own meta data is mysteriously omitted from your "point"...bias much? N4G Meta for R2 is 91 http://www.n4g.com/PS3/game...
You are the definition of FAILURE! The world would be a better place without people like you.
Maverick just lost to a black dude. SAD
x-play give out 100% like cookies
Only on Playstation 3,for Xbox 360 can not handle the lighting system alone in Resistance 2
This game is awesome
such a deep comment.
I just got my R2 CE!
Well maybe not a 5/5...but very high... I felt the game did so many things really good... but nothing really really well... I`ll be playing this game for years to come... Played my first game of CTF (or there version)...pretty fargin cool... Don`t miss this game, if you are a online gamer-
"God why do I have to play as a generic space marine with a gigantic boner for a mexican comrade looking for his wife,God"
R2 is really my first attempt at insane hardcore online gaming. WTF just look at the rankings, someone already has one of the hardest trophies to get with a score of + 2 000 000. everybody makes headshots. I seriously suck online, but it's crazy, and when I got a sniper, well I become overwhelming. PSN id: Djou-Karl
I'm a good sniper too. :D PM me and we can add each other.
OMFG I JUST GOT A KILLZONE 2 INVITE IN MY EMAIL!!! Sorry, just had to let ya know. R2 is on my list to get . . . soon.
You can't believe how much i'd want it!!!!
I got my KZ2 email too!!! My only complaint about the KZ2 beta is the friendly fire. I'm sick of n00bs throwing random grenades and killing me!!! Look before you throw ya jerks!!! lol. But other than the friendly fire the game is awesome. My favorite thing about the game is the weight of the bullets in the game. When you fire your gun and hit somebody you and they definitely know it. On Topic: I loved the R2 beta. I bought the game, but I can't download the f***in patch!!
@Imallvol7, I got my Killzone 2 Beta Code email about 3 hours ago. I was excited as F*ck! It was sent from the Playstation Underground, so if anyone reading this wants in, you'll need to be signed up on the Playstation Underground (I registered back in 2003), but hopefully KZ2 beta codes will be distributed publicly like LBP and R2 from gaming websites so as many people as possible can get a chance to enjoy the K2 Beta Back on Topic: X-Play gave Resistance Fall of Man a 5/5, so I don't see why/how they would give R2 anything lower.
So far I really like the water in R2 It actually behaves like water and the wooded area. When you get the shotty and those invisible big things rush you. The foilage and flora and trees where done very well among other things. I did find an anoying glitch where a car is between a couple motorhomes It seems like theres a duplicate of the car inside the car it make annoying sounds too. Nothing that can't be fixed in a patch. kick as5 game.
Insomniac is doing really well; I'll have to rent it. I wonder if they're going to switch to episodic content for Ratchet and Clank and focus on Resistance; that would be an awesome business plan. But I have heard: SNAPE KILLS NATHAN IN LEVEL 3!
xplay is one of the reviewers that i trust the most despite G4 overall how do you say crappyness.
I seriously had forgotton about Xplay....but sweet review seems like they were really digging the game... Well So am I..^.^
from Playstation Underground. I got a code for the Killzone 2 beta. Oh GLORIOUS DAY, let me share my joy.
DAMN YOUUUUUUUUUUUUU! >u< Checks mail...and blinks. I'M IN TOO! O___O *faints*
which actually reminds me that I have to invite you and a few other people to play LBP. It should be fun. And it should also help me get more trophies.
Oi! It'll be an honor. :3
and these beta keys are only for one person? or you acn share them with some friends, like me? ;-)
Not really sure Fancy Pants. I opened my email and saw my key staring at me. o.o
it can be shared...wait...it's an open beta....YESSSSSSSS. I will try it later.
can u tell how to get in,it's kill me can't make till next year to see this game in action
on Playstation Underground and register your first party games there too and hope for the best.
It's still considered a Private Beta, the NDA rules still apply
damn you guys! i'm jealous, maybe i'm shtlisted from the kz2 beta :*(((((((((((
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWHO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! = I just got the email for Killzone 2 beta.
