PS3 Informer writes: "In Resistance 2, the sequel continues where the first installment ended. Lt. Nathan Hale, stranded after an intensive battle against the Chimera in London, wonders aimlessly through an english blizzard. When hope for rescue is lost, the buzzing of a helicopter swoops below the clouds and lands at his six. It's the Americans! The U.S. soldiers forcefully detain and sedate Hale, then fly to Iceland for testing and evaluation. Unbeknown to Hale, his mission soon continues.
Initially, the graphics are questionable due to dark rooms and destroyed scenery. However, the lack luster graphics play well to the disorientated Lieutenant's story-line. Once Hale reaches the outdoors, immediately the graphics shine. The colors are vivid with improved details to the environment, weaponry, and Chimera. Also, cutscenes from narrated camera shots to cinematic scenes were long overdue. We'll consider the lack of initial cinematography a newcomer's budget. One downside to the cinematic scenes is the difficulty to understand dialogue during background environmental noises like explosions. Perhaps these scenes are orchestrated in this fashion to mimic actual audible distractions of war."
