GameSpy: Resistance 2 Review

Once again, Insomniac promises and it delivers with Resistance 2. Although its campaign has some plot twists that are mind-boggling, and there's no pretense that the ending is a bonafide cliffhanger, it's engaging, even if the narrative fails to explain some of the big story hooks. Competitive multiplayer is bigger and more brutal than its predecessor. Most importantly, co-op multiplayer is an absolute joy to play.

Ultimately, however, it's the role-playing elements, such as experience points, that really enrich it. It's an FPS that accomplishes the rare feat of being both rock-hard and rewarding. There's still room for a few surprises, but right now, there aren't many shooters this year that can stand up to Resistance 2.

I'm really gonna buy this game when it comes out. I wonder when the Philppines will have it?

i like the last sentence on the review which states "There's still room for a few surprises, but right now, there aren't many shooters this year that can stand up to Resistance 2". SWEET!

The game is sick in everyway. And leaves gears at war 1.1 totally in the dust no matter what these rigged reviews and biased reviewers say.

These biased reviewers need to open their eyes. People arent blind and consumers arent STUPID.

60 player > 5 player
8 player coop > 4 player coop
Real 300 feet free roaming bosses > fake 200 feet bosses that you only fight 10 feet of it.
R2 graphics > GeOW2 graphics
R2 has 40-50 enemies on screen you fight at once, without slowdown.
GeOW2 has the same old 3-4 enemies on screen at once.

It's not the perfect shooter, but this sequel just blew me out of the water compared to the 1st one.

I bet you also think that the 360 is the greatest console ever built also huh ?

ne ways stick to ur laggy 5 vs 5 online play while I'll enjoy 30 vs 30 and 8 player co-op without experiencing ne LAG what so ever .

"An incredible average of 95% vs. 89%."

>> Are you being deliberately dumb? Gears of war 1.1s average is 9.2 even on the precious biased site called Metacritics.

LBP: 9.6 second highest meta
Gears of war 1.1: already down to 9.2
Resistance 2: 9
WipeOut: 9
Valkyria: 9
Motorstorm: 8

Resistance 2 has fallen below the 90s in Metacritic.

Largely surpassed by Gears of War 2 and now below Fable 2 too, which is at 90.

Insomniac has the hardest mission of all Sony studios: Compete with Epic.

jollygoodchap84026d ago

You do know Fable 2 is not a 90 it's under 90 now.

Unless you deliberately overlooked that for the sake of fanboy squabble.

Anyway just correcting you.

Aquanox4026d ago

The must have added a new low review recently. It was in the 90s just yesterday.

Anyways, the fact still remains that once again, Gears of War 2 has taken the shooter crown of this year, and by a long shot this time.

hulk_bash19874026d ago

Be that as it may, it doesnt change the fact that Resistance is a great shooter that I believe holds its own against the competition. Dont get me wrong i enjoyed the 1st gears and odds are im gonna enjoy Gears 2 but that doesnt take away anything from resistance 2.

omg those new gameplay vids look amazing talk about scale,and what a sweet review can't wait to get this game and play and my sony brivia full hd tv,it's gonna be intense

Cryos4025d ago

I just picked up my copy of the collector's edition tonight. Haven't gotten to play the campaign yet. But here's what I'm already missing...

Had my buddies over, and apparently you can't play 4 player co-op offline. only 2 at a time :o( bummer.

Also, can't play 2 player campaign as in the first game....

And worse of all......

I can't have my buddies over and play offline deathmatch.

_____________________________ _________________________

I still can't wait to play the campaign, but those features kept me playing the game today. Just this past weekend my buddies were over playing deathmatch and we were all psyched to play it on the new game.
