PSW previews Resistance 2

Resistance had its fair share of critics. Consider the following statement: "Few knew who this Sergeant Nathan Hale was, why the American soldier with an impossibly generic face had muscled into Britain's fight for survival against the Chimeran menace. Or why it was thought a workable idea for him to be described in the third-person throughout a first-person game."

No, that's not a quote from Captain Rachel Parker, the distancing voice of exposition from Resistance: Fall of Man. It's just PSW's way to point out how lame her inclusion was and why, in Resistance 2, her absence is just one of many brilliant changes that are set to make the sequel stand head and shoulders above the original.

Bring on the demo!!

I disagree with the article's criticism of Resistance 1 being like a PS2 game in some ways. I felt the entire experience was next gen.

There are games out now that are better like COD4 but a year and a half ago 40 player online with great graphics and content was a next gen experience.

I've went back to playing Resistance. I love call of duty 4 but that game has too many damn problems. :( GRENAAAADDAAAAAA

COD4 is a great game made a pain in the ass with the problems it has from server lag to stats and non unlocking unlockables! Never had these problems with rfom. I actually dug out rfom last night and had a few games due to some of the COD4 problems pissing me off!

As for the character Nathan Hale and the bird that does the narrative, they all work fine in the context of the game. I would hardly call her removal from the rfom 2 as a “brilliant change”. (very puzzled by that? over-trying maybe?) As with most games, when you look back over the game and story things could have been different maybe improved but hey hindsight has 20/20 vision.

to find out more about the cloven! Resistance has a great story. Something Gears of War doesn't have.

The lighting in this game appears to be improved over Resistance. Funny thing is, Resistance is still going for full price at most places, even used, the game is close to being full price.
