Resistance 2 looks to kick every aspect of the game up a notch and give PS3 owners more to do with their newest Insomniac game. Does R2 stack up to the highly-competitive competition in the first-person shooter genre?
Resistance 2 picks off right where the Fall of Man ended, with Nathan Hale stumbling through a snow-filled area as he's picked up by these strange soldiers that he soon finds out are members of the Special Research Project Administration, or SRPA for short. They employ many others like Nathan that have survived the Chimeran infection and have gained special powers like him in a special task force called The Sentinels. The Chimerans have spread their grasp of the globe since they last saw Nathan, as they are now setting their sights on the last remaining bases in Iceland and North America to finish off the last remaining human armed forces. Though the story's presentation isn't as heavy-handed as it was in Fall of Man, the story here is fairly interesting and those that want more of the background and story can collect the intel hidden throughout the single-player and co-op campaigns. Just don't play R2 if you hope for a bright and cheerful story and ending."
