GameXplain.com writes, "Insomniac has been one of my favorite developers since the days of Spyro the Dragon. The developer can seem to do no wrong and are always bustling with fun ideas and great gameplay. They proved it with Spyro, they proved it again with Ratchet & Clank, and they proved it with a vengeance with the original Resistance. Resistance 2, however, felt like a misstep to me. The game wasn’t bad, not even close, but it felt like it went through an identity crisis. Gone was the ability to hold every weapon, instead only carrying two at a time, which just seemed counterintuitive when you have such creative gun designs. Rechargeable health also became the norm and suddenly Resistance 2 was every other shooter out on the market. Good, but certainly not a standout. With the release of Resistance 3, Insomniac seems to have learned their lesson and intend to bring the series back to its roots."
