Maddy Myers writes: "In the current console wars, fans of shooters have gravitated toward the Xbox 360 - which means that Sony's Resistance, a PS3 shooter, is getting lost in the shuffle. Although the first installment pales - it's good, but not good enough - when compared with the first Gears of War, its Microsoft rival, their respective sequels, which were released in the same week last month, are neck and neck.
Even though two mind-blowing, kick-ass shooters got released in the same week and would please the exact same audience, there isn't much reason to compare Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2. Determining which game is "better" is difficult - and not an answerable question by most, since so few will have the means to play both games all the way through. It's certainly cheaper to stick to just one. But know this: you ignore Resistance 2 at your own peril. I'm not too much of a 360 fangirl to admit it."
