Resistance 3 reviews call game 'refreshing and best game yet'

Resistance 3 reviews haven't been published yet, but that hasn't stopped developer Insomniac spilling early play testers' positive reactions to the PS3 exclusive FPS. (PS3, Resistance 3)

I can't wait to get this game, September 6th!
Daver  +   1632d ago
Me too, Resistance 2 disappointed me but I know this one will be a lot better from what i saw so far.
killcycle  +   1631d ago
The coop in Res2 was really fun imo so much was going on on-screen and you don't lose a single frame.

They tried to focus on too many different things and that's what killed it, coop, sp, mp, all the different modes.

I prefer it when games stick to just a small unique bunch of things that make the game what it is and put the dev time into that.

I actually Despised Them For Wanting to Go Multiplat, ill Buy This , but after seeing some E3 gameplay it looks soo amazing id be very surprised if they can pull anything this good off on the 360

Lmao yeah right. I can't wait to see IGN compare it to Halo or COD and call it sub par and "didn't change anything" for the genre....then go and praise the hell out of MW3 saying it "innovated the world" watch...IGN just makes me laugh now.

As for the game, pre ordered and ready to play! :D

I really liked Resistance 2 :(

I am looking forward to this though :D
Ju  +   1631d ago
I liked R2. I think what the problem was with the game was polishing. It did shine in various places, but they couldn't keep that level through the whole game. I still think over all it was great.

Now, if they can build on that and take what R:FoM made the series great (atmosphere, narrative, combat style, etc) and pump up the visuals even above R2, well, then, Ladies and Gentlemen, we got a winner.

I remember R2 released with KZ2; around the same time. I played the crap out of both, constantly switching back and forth between those for weeks.

Can't wait for R3!

Dmarc you should play the beta now. There are a lot of things to learn with the new play changes. They also fixed the freezing issue! After playing the beta I'm tempted to buy now.
WhittO  +   1631d ago
My money is so low lately I can't even afford to buy it! haha :(
I'll get it in a month or so when my money picks back up, can't wait to play it because I haven't seen much of this game at all so I can sit down and really just play the sh*t out of it haha, I really like the resistance world too so can't wait to see how it turns out lol.
I still havent even bought Infamous 2 yet!! :(

yeah that the attitude :D
KendrickGLS  +   1631d ago
Now that's the right idea! I sure wish Resistance wasn't a exclusive because I'm stuck with Gears eventhough it's awsome, but just not as good as Resistance. And tomorrow will bring something good or maybe something bad but who cares right now so don't be as paranoid as pixelsword. Righteous!

Both SP and MP look like they've had equal attention, and both look pretty great :)

damnyouretall  +   1631d ago
time to dust off the sharpshooter. hope it works great with this game. couldnt use it in the beta. by the way, where the hell is the demo? it was on psn a few months ago then removed. some people are serious assholes for removing it.
50Terabytespersec  +   1631d ago
The first had this feeling and this stable tone, this atmosphere the second was a mess of a game ...
If they were to ever get the graphics up like say , RAGE or to the level of Killzone this would qualify as AAA but for now it has always been a game that ran on a Half life type of midranged tech..I'll buy it and if it runs below HD I'll sell it after i beat it.
Ju  +   1631d ago
R2 had awesome visuals at times. Come on, tell me that opening scene isn't top notch, or that San Francisco/Golden Gate level. So, from a technical standpoint, it was up there with the greatest. But it just wasn't consistently implemented through out the whole games. Some levels looked bland, I give you that.

This game has the best particle effects of all games I ever played. In the scope of the maps it is just phenomenal (map size and number of players).

Resistance 1 and 2 were cool. Remember that Resistance 2 made everyone spaz out "omg 60 players online and no lag!! Awesome!!" least till mag came out,lol. Just a sony dev challenging a sony dev.

I wonder if Insomniac was challenging anyone with Resistance 3? We know that sucker punch challenge a few devs (in good fun, they mentioned it in an article or two)

@ Masta_fro well stalking someones profile makes you a stalker in that case...Its really obvious to get subtenkos comment.

He's talking about the "Disagree fairies" as many people like to put them... If you couldn't understand what he was saying then I guess you seem like an 8 year old going by your logic.

Just offense, but its not that hard to understand.

Anyway, about Resistance 3, I'm really eager to see how well it stacks up against Resistance 1. I personally favored Resistance 1 over 2.

i think insomniac taking 3 years instead of 2 and doing things right and doing what fans wanted i am super excited about this

insomniac have said there will be a day one patch to fix many issues that were in beta so really can't wait

am i the only one who wish the 8 player online co-op that was in resistance 2 was in resistance 3?(i loved it)
EeJLP-  +   1631d ago
You don't know what you're talking about. The extra year didn't do a damn thing to help the game or give fans want they wanted.

Last time I checked, RFoM fans didn't want all the restrictions of R2 and then some. R2 fans didn't want co-op removed. Resistance fans didn't want CoD-like Killstreak rewards, etc.

You're talking out of your @ and your 1st and 3rd paragraph contradicting each other proves it.

No doubt it'll be the best in the series.

3 years of development instead of 2 will do that.

100 years would be nothing if they didn't make important changes and listen to the fans. Which is what they're doing, though.

SoapShoes  +   1631d ago
They listened to the fans with FOM which is why R2 lost the weapon wheel, had tons of color, and regenerating health. I think they should listen to fans but not as much as they did with R2.
pixelsword  +   1631d ago
Listening to fans is what made the Star Wars series suck.
FunAndGun  +   1631d ago
@ Estranged

I think it was the critics that ruined R2. What FOM fan didn't like the weapon wheel?

The critics complained about the grays and browns, that is why R2 was saturated with color.
Bebedora  +   1631d ago
^I am so with you on that. They listend and got mixed up. They should, as all developers would, follow their own path. They cannot do things the way others want. Passion is lost and mediocricy kicks in. (My opinion o/c)

I find the multiplayer Beta quite boring. It's not bad, it's just a cookie cutter remake of all FPS. I for sure will be enjoying the single player story though. Looks great.

Emilio_Estevez  +   1632d ago
Couldn't agree more. I can't believe they dropped the 60player mp. The crazyness that was 30vs30 can't be matched, it was(and still is)awesome.
BulletToothtony  +   1632d ago
imo not trying to say that you personally didn't enjoy it.. but that very chaos is only appealing to a minority..

It gets frustrating sometimes when you can't do anything without getting shot from all directions..

the game becomes mostly about luck and not skills.. unless you camp..

I personally like the beta a lot thou.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1631d ago
Resistance The First had the best multiplayer imo.
andibandit  +   1631d ago
@ DrStabwounds

havent played Resistance, but yeah, lots of players is crazyness, it's just a whole diffrent game.

from my time in Battlefield(PC)
nycredude  +   1632d ago
How many different variations of mp can there possibly be? Come on be real. Mp in all games are the same thing but with different skins. Sure they all have something unique to that game but bottom line is. You are shooting each other.

I don't think it's fair to label R3 beta as a cookie cutter remake when EVERY mp is pretty much that and can be boring. Now Starhawk we will see.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1631d ago
As my comment above, did you not play The first game's multiplayer? It was refreshing, it was different, the two factions actually had different abilities and weapons (though you could take them from dead bodies too).
SpinalRemains138  +   1631d ago
Are you suggesting that the FPS genre is maxed out or has hit its creative ceiling? I strongly disagree. There's always room for improvement or innovation. R3 does none of this. Its spawn, shoot, die repeat.

How about some different elements in a FPS? How about new hand to hand techniques? How about noticeable body damage? How about larger capacity for 60 players? Jesuss man, think about what you're saying. You're advocating to keep it static. I say make changes. Make it better. Make it stand alone as what the genre should be. What it shouldn't be is COD with an alien skin and laser gun.
Szarky  +   1631d ago
Same feelings I had. Was very bored and dissappointed with the MP.

Will be buying sharpshooter bundle for SP though!!!
Wizziokid  +   1632d ago
can't wait to get this, was going to get dead island but i'll have to wait a while since this will be taking most of my play time
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   1632d ago
Im personally getting Dead Island over this because R2 left a bad taste in my mouth and I wasn't impressed as it took steps back compared to R1. Not saying R3 is going to be bad, it just has a lot to prove to me before I'll buy it right off the bat. It don't help that I don't hear much good of the mulitplayer beta too, as online is what keeps me going back to most games!
Old McGroin  +   1632d ago
Prebooked my copy of Dead Island earlier today to get the extra DLC for free, can't frickin' wait, looks excellent!
knowledge4lfe  +   1632d ago
i was gonna pick up dead island but i havent seen any ps3 footage and its gonna be on xbox live but not on that really worries me. ill just rent it at REDBOX when im done with R3. right now im playing deus ex and some R3 beta.
Objective  +   1632d ago
Hope this doesn't disappoint the way KZ3 did.
Old McGroin  +   1632d ago
I played through KZ2 and KZ3 for the first time a couple of weeks ago, KZ2 was a bit underwhelming (it IS a couple of years old now though) but I was really surprised by KZ3, I really enjoyed it.
Daver  +   1632d ago
Same thing, I prefered Killzone 3 way more than killzone 2.
SoapShoes  +   1632d ago
I don't know why people bash KZ3, I just got it a week ago and I prefer it much more than KZ2. The variety of environments makes it a huge plus and the slide to cover makes cover improved double fold.

Also I preferred the story better too. KZ2's story was pretty vague and while KZ3's wasn't great it was highly improved and better than a lot of FPS storylines.
HOSe  +   1631d ago
because the multiplayer is lackluster.
BABY-JEDI  +   1631d ago
IMO Killzone 2 is more hardcore. There isn't ammunition dumps all over the place. Also the boss battles are more challenging. Finally, KZ3 really felt very linear & MP was stripped down (though I was pleasantly surprised with controls)
SoapShoes  +   1631d ago
And KZ2 didn't feel linear? You could only go on one path as well. I agree on the bosses being harder though.
Killman  +   1631d ago
KZ3 is a blast with the Move.
soundslike  +   1631d ago
How many people still play it though? Nearly everyone who bought it at launch that I know gave up on it after only a couple of months.

Not saying its bad or anything...
mastiffchild  +   1631d ago
Plenty playing KZ3 whenever I pop in for a bit of Move MP. TBH I prefer KZ2 MP to KZ3 but playing with Move has been a revelation for me and makes up for them taking away the heavy controls which gave the series some ID in a sea of identikit shooters.

I, also, found that playing the campaign a long time after the hype of launch gave me a clean slate with the game and, for me, it was a great entry to the series but, again, I like it MUCH better using move. Getting a Sharpshooter, too, as everyone says how good they are. Hoping R3 can marry the great parts of FoM with the tight Move game play of KZ3 and if so MP should be a blast while the campaign should be back to the gritty beast that FoM was with all the choice and fun of the weapon wheel back to use.
Ju  +   1631d ago
@BABY-JEDI, I agree with all what you said, and yet I liked KZ3 better.

BTW: I did not touch the DS3 once in KZ3...that how much I like playing it with the Move.

I was hoping it was gonna be crap, can't afford all the great games over the next couple of months :(

Actually haven't been keeping much of an eye on it, is the co-op good? Is it the main campaign and can you co-op online (I'm looking at you KZ3)?

I'm sure it will be great but lets be honest Insomniac summarizing play tester reactions does not equal a review. The fact that no one here cares it further evidence of the ps3 bias on n4g.

if this had been a MS game or even a multiplat folks would be skeptical, and in many cases downright hostile.

anyway its day one for me.
SoapShoes  +   1631d ago
People playing the games are more important to me than some reviewer. Reviews don't really say much on a whole because R2 got huge critical success(over 90% on Meta/Gamerankings) but a lot of the fans did not like it.

I care about what gamers have to say not someone getting paid to review 20 games a week.
Blues Cowboy  +   1631d ago
Not sold on R3 yet, going to need to see more weapons first! Feel the series lost its spark after Nathan Fouts left Insomniac.

For the record, though, the article says best "INSTALMENT" yet, not best "game" yet. Pedantic I know, but quite an important distinction...

judging by your attitude I'd say give it at least a few weeks, and then evaluate if you still want it.

thing is, i want the game but it's the sharpshooter i'm on the fence about and i know its cheaper to get the bundle. argh!!!
problemchild84  +   1631d ago
I have the sharpshooter, I bought it for use with Killzone 3 and it works great! It takes some calibrating to get it where you like but once you do its a blast and very accurate. Well worth the $40(the target store in my area has it on sale for $25 now)

As far as lying around the house goes mine does from time to time but only cause I don't have time to play as much as i would like. I should also note that it does get a little tiring after long plays.

O.T.- R3 looks great, I love how they seem to be going back to the first game in the series in terms of atmosphere and game play.

call of duty clone? Why even compare awsome Resistance to stupid call of duty? call of booty is a modern-day war game where you're killing human soldiers while Resistance is a historical-based sci-fi shooter where you're killing aliens. Resistance 3 is what's happening! Eventhough I won't be able to play Resistance 3 since I don't have a ps3, but my cousin do, but I'll wait for the game's price to drop real low before I buy it for his ps3, so right now I'm stuck with getting Gears 3 eventhough it's an awsome game, but just not as awsome as Resistance. Resistance 2 was so awsome with it's single-player, and co-op modes, but I didn't really like the multi-player, but I guess since I got so used to call of duty's free for all mode. Speaking of war games Battlefield 3, Gears 3, and Need for Speed The Run are my games of the year! Righteous!

I played the beta a couple times. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to slightly copy the Gears running style(cause i don't remember the past Resistance games having it like that). The beta is niice and the map is cool but I'm not a fan of the that running style. Im still getting the game tho. s***s gonna be hot :)
