Guardian writes: "Resistance: Fall of Man was a PlayStation 3 launch game - and it showed. Even the novel settings of Grimsby and York couldn't hide the derivative sub-Halo first-person shooter action. Thankfully, the sequel is much improved. From the off it's clear that Resistance 2 means business. Towering assailants, epic vistas, varied environments and even decent voice acting are all thrown at you in the first couple of hours Only annoyingly accurate enemy fire detracts from the illusion, but the urge to see where the action takes you next is a real incentive to lock, load and move on."
