Neocrisis: Resistance 2 Review

Homicide from Neocrisis writes: Resistance 2 is the sequel to the well received PS3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man. The game was announced in February 2008 with its online features such as the 8 player co-op and 60 multiplayer that kept us hooked wondering how it'll be pulled off. Throughout the year before Resistance's 2 release, Insomniac kept releasing new info and trailers that really showed Resistance 2 was going to be a huge improvement over the first. Is Nathan Hale's latest mission successful?

What's with all the late reviews?

Homicide3516d ago

The game came out like 2 days ago in Europe.

But I'd rate this more in the 7.5-8/10 range. I was hyped for it and it underwhelmed a tad. Killzone 2 will be much better come February.

A dry-cured ham has been rubbed in a mixture containing salt and a variety of other ingredients (most usually some proportion of sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite). This is followed by a period of drying and aging. Dry-cured hams may require a period of re-hydration prior to consumption. Some ham curing methods begin wet but are followed by dry aging.

I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hara-Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!

i think the game is junk compared to rfom

off line it's on rails and boring , on line it's plain mindless drivel

rfom on line had some amazing scenarios ; the cathedral , the bus depot , the forest , they were all fun to play and were massive mp fests

this game is just ...

words fail me over how lame it is

You're entitled to your opinion, but this commment:

"off line it's on rails"

... doesn't make sense. Usually the term on rails when talking about a videogame means that you don't control the character's movement. Well, if that's what you're implying here, it's false. If you're trying to say the game is linear, then...uh... ok? So was the first one, and just about every other FPS ever made. This one is no more painfully linear than any other FPS out there except maybe Far Cry 2.

I gave you a disagree, because I think on its own R2 is a great game.

However, I hear what you are saying, and I think I liked R1 better. But its pointless to wish for a R1 with R2 tech. That just won't happen. The story needed to move forward, the MP is innovative and addicting (I like to play Bad Company competitive more then R2, though. But nothing beats the co-op in R2).

I would wish R3 goes back to the roots, though. There was some distinct art direction and design decision which made R1 stand out. Now, they tried to make it more mainstream as a shooter.

Best shooter of 2008 - CONFIRMED.

GeOW1.2 looks like pong next to this behemoth of a game.

Resistance 2 is a love or hate game. I loved the beta but i'm yet to go buy it, only just came out in europe.
