Sports Legends: Resistance 2 Review

Resistance 2 is a game all about numbers. In this quirky but enjoyable PlayStation 3 shooter, you'll take on a 300 foot-tall Leviathan in the single-player campaign, blast countless hordes in the eight-player cooperative mode, and shoot it out with 60 players in online competitive matches. These three modes -- campaign, cooperative, and competitive -- embody the entirety of the Resistance 2 experience, and to see the big picture you'll have to play them all.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Bigger, badder and better than the first, Resistance 2 improves upon the formula set by its predecessor in almost every way. Unfortunately, a handful of minor issues, such as less than stellar graphics, keep this game from reaching the high bar set by competing titles like Call of Duty 4 and Gears of War 2. Still, with its interesting single-player campaign and robust online component, Resistance 2 has plenty to offer any PS3 owner looking for a quick and easy shooter fix. Sports Legends gave Resistance 2 for the PS3 a B+.

"Unfortunately, a handful of minor issues, such as less than stellar graphics, keep this game from reaching the high bar set by competing titles like Call of Duty 4 and Gears of War 2."

I thought Resistance 2 was the best looking game in the universe...Overrated.

MURKERR3324d ago (Edited 3324d ago )

that you think your opinion counts for anything

InMyOpinion3324d ago

It's their opinion, not mine.

anh_duong3324d ago (Edited 3324d ago )

actually it is YOUR opinion that the game is overrated

if you can't understand what you wrote then how can you understand what is going on.

ultimolu3324d ago (Edited 3324d ago )

...Seriously Jenzo, what's your problem?

Did you play the game for yourself? Why are you determining how well a game plays by reviews when you haven't played it yourself?

Do me a favor and keep your opinions to yourself. Usually, when people don't have anything remotely useful to say, they keep it to themselves.

Anyone with a brain can see what they said about the game. But when a gamer experiences the game for themselves, they can make their OWN decisions.

I was in the beta, I played the game, I LOVE IT.

That's what matters to me.

Nope, Killzone2 is. It`s NOT on the 360 either.

So.....

kevnb3324d ago

is certainly not a console game...

"Usually, when people don't have anything remotely useful to say, they keep it to themselves."

Priceless

That can't be any more wrong here on N4G

InMyOpinion3324d ago

lol! I love your reactions. How many copies did Resistance 2 sell in it's first day? I thought it was supposed to be a Halo killer. Killzone 2 will probably go down the drain in sales as well.

You talk about how much you love the games, how come no one is buying them?

Can you please provide legitimate proof of how people are not buying Resistance 2 dearest Jenzo? If you cannot provide proof, then you are in NO position to claim R2 didn't sell at all.

Unbelievable.

InMyOpinion3324d ago (Edited 3324d ago )

2.1 million on the first day. That's how AAA titles roll.

If Resistance 2 sold well there would be news about it. Like it's first day sales for instance. They are probably too embarrassed to report it.

How come you changed your account? I guess you use the Juuken account to give bubbles to ultimolu, no?

DiabloRising3324d ago

It's a sad day when all gamers care about is sales numbers. Pathetic, I pity your sad sad existence.

ultimolu3324d ago

A game doesn't need to have a crapload of sales to be AAA. Resistance 2 is AAA material in my eyes and the eyes of others because we played it for ourselves. And Onslaught is correct in his comment. It's a sad day indeed when scores matter so much these days as well as sales.

Also, nice try but no. I changed the password of my old account so I wouldn't remember it. I don't need to *steal* bubbles. I receive bubbles because I'm trying to be more level-headed these days.

That's how much you know. :)

The graphics are not mind blowing but they Chimera look amazing. Especially the big bosses (and there are a lot of them)

Still, this game is anything but overrated. The fact that some people only care about graphics is sad.

Brixxer6003324d ago

Stuff reviewers

Buy it, play it and rate it yourselves. It's the only way to make your OWN mind up. Never let anyone else decide for you, i've played some real hidden gems in my time and i've also played some terrible games but i always decide for myself.

Reviewers could be having a bad day.

Man_of_the_year3324d ago

I don't buy games just to find out later that i didn't like it...i would rather base my opinion off of reviews before i buy...just like what i do with cars. Reveiws do matter.

kevnb3324d ago (Edited 3324d ago )

there are actually plenty of reviews that said Dark Knight was a horrible movie... Almost nobody buys video games based off reviews, car reviews are different since they are not nearly as opinion based.

thewhoopimen3324d ago

you count on car reviews because cars cost so much that if you got a lemon.... ouch in the pocket.

Game reviews... purely subjective.

Man_of_the_year3324d ago

Actually you are both wrong. I use a wide variety of reviews to get an "average". I then base that average to see if its more Positive than negative...I have read Dark Knight reviews and i have yet to find any of them bad...as for cars being more expensive...well that is a null point as 1 persons perspective of "expensive" may not be shared by someone elses. If reviews were not important than why are you guys in every review thread...why are so many gamers eager to dispute negative reviews to games they like and commend positive reviews to the same games...

You are both hyprocrites as you say they don't matter yet....here you are in a review thread....

i am the truth3324d ago

Is not that some people only care about graphics.When i played killzone2 beta and played resistance 2 it was like playing a last gen game.The propblem is there are so many shoot em up coming out with mind blowing graphics so when u play another FPS game that is not as good looking as the rest u start to think the graphics are crap.And killzone 2 has both graphics and gameplay!!!!

Foxgod3324d ago

Finally a scrore that Resistance 2 deserves, good review.
