Let's face it, as we've grown up, the diaspora of our gaming friends has left many of us with big empty spaces on our couches that we want to fill somehow. We need to play with friends. We need banter and trash talking. Moments in single player games often awe us, but it's always so much better when a friend is there to watch your back and scream obscenities at you when you can't tackle an objective. After all, isn't that what friends are for?
I'm sure you can only imagine our excitement when we heard about the online co-op implemented in Resistance 2. Up to eight players can join forces to take on the Chimeran threat in an original story that parallels the events in the single player campaign. Select a class, level up weapons and armor as you gain experience, and coordinate your team into a brutal Chimera-killing machine."
