Indeed, such was the case with Insomniac Games' PlayStation 3 title Resistance: Fall of Man. By virtue of its position as a FPS launch title, early adopters gathered at its heels and elevated a solid but unremarkable game with a fun multiplayer into a veritable 'killer app'. Resistance met with considerable success and so now, two years later, gamers have been graced with a sequel bearing the simple moniker of Resistance 2. Insomniac promised bigger battles, better visuals, and an overall boost in terms of the title's multiplayer options and indeed, Resistance 2 is beefier and brasher than its predecessor in every way. However, the question remains: is resistance still futile the second time round?"
