With the new patch addressing many of the issues I had with resistance 2. I've decided to finally review Resistance 2.
I am a MAJOR fan of Resistance: Fall of Man. The single player was amazing. The multiplayer was as good, but it easily became a grenade fest.
But on to Resistance 2 now. Resistance 2 does NOT have a stronger single player campaign when compared to Resistance: Fall of man. But that has not stopped me from playing the campaign over 5 times. Its rewards and fun each time.
Especially with the Bonus features in the game. The boss battles are intense, but not that challenging (which is fine). Its an FPS, so it doesn't stress you with UBER hard boss battles. The guns are amazing throughout the game, although it does get repetitive sometimes. After my first play through, I found myself holding onto an Augar gun for the rest of the game.
The single player gets a 8/10 from me.
Co-op makes ALOT of the single player up. It out shines ANY game I've played up to date. I've spent well over 3 days of gametime in Co-op. It was time well spent.
Being a 3 class based game makes the co-op more intense then ever. Don't expect to solo the whole stage. Team work counts alot.
With a reward system for leveling up, it definitely makes the game alot more interesting. With each class having its own type of gameplay as you level up.
The recent patch made stalker's movable... which is great.
8-player co-op has never been better!
Co-op gets a 9.8/10. (Some visual glitches detract a .2)
Firstly, the multiplayer has ALOT of bugs.. esp. in Skirmish mode.
But, this is easily the best multiplayer experience availiable on the PS3. With regular updates from IG, the multiplayer will be bug free and be enjoyable for everyone.
Skrimish mode is my favourite, that is being a dynamic objective mode.
You get random objectives, and a rival 'squad' to do the same.
You are divided into squads of 5, which makes the game more intense. Having to co-operate with your team mates is essential. Watch each other's back and they'll end up saving your life later on.
Although I do wish you were able to continue the game with the same people after a match was an option. It seems that they will patch that in later.
Berserks are sort of like COD4's perk system. But you need to build up points to be able to use them. I love the berserk system, it gives you a chance to turn the tide of battle.
60 player battles make you feel like a soldier on a battle feel. Great job IG.
Multiplayer gets 10/10.
PS: The control scheme is a welcome change. Now its alot more COD4 style, which is great!
Graphics arent that great. But with the amount of action on screen, you wont have time to notice them :D
Must own or at least rent for every ps3 owner!
