Gaming Age writes: "Resistance 2 is the Halo 3 of the PlayStation 3... there, I said it. A hugely anticipated, platform exclusive FPS sequel with a slightly underwhelming single player experience and an amazing, addictive online multiplayer component. Both games have very loyal followings and large rabid fan bases who have spent (or will spend) countless hours blasting away online with friends. The franchises share some similarities on the surface, though they are quite different enough in style, structure and gameplay to feel unique. The one thing they absolutely have in common is an attentive developer and of course a supportive, and often demanding, community. Insomniac Games clearly put a lot of heart into Resistance 2, and their fans will ultimately thank them for it".
