How was your experience with the Resistance 3 beta? Well, be sure to read about ours in this article!
Beta is pretty fun. Started out pretty rough but it's pretty balanced and stable now. Honestly though I think I'll be spending most of my time in private games with no abilities allowed. That and one hit kills.... Ah yes...one hit kills :). Remember one hit kill on the Manchester map?
I'm gonna have to say that, despite what this "preview" says, the Map on the English Seaside is quite colorful and beautiful. Makes me wonder how much something has to look like Viva Pinata to be counted as "not brown." Anyway, the beta is awesome, the multiplayer is responsive and fun, and the visuals are a great evolution of the series and high quality.
I don't like the aiming, its just trying to be another COD. Devs are losing their original skills for the sake of noobs
the aiming is nothing like COD TBH. COD is primarily an ADS shooter whereas in resistance you have to strafe move and hip fire to be a monster. Trying to kill people ADS will surely get you killed fast.
What are you talking about? Hip firing was good on the first resistance, I tried to hip fire and strafe but I failed miserably because you have to ADS to kill Its been like this since R2
Firing from the hip works fine to me. With the bullseye you just have to tag ppl and let loose. With the Carbine you can hit em with the grenade launcher and then just spray and pray to finish em. Shotgun needs no explanation. Only two guns where hip fire is a bad choice is with the sniper and marksman. But those are scoped weapons meant for long range anyway.
i average 4+ kills per minuet i know what i'm talking about. ADS is only good for the marksmen and the occasional ranged carbine kill.
The game has custom controls.
I can't decide which map I like better. They are both awesome and the gameplay is absolutely champ. Wish the character models looked better however.
Significant visual improvements over R2 multiplayer however, I'm struggling to get excited about this game's MP. I simply dont get enough time to play and right now BC2 occupies whatever gaming time I get. I'm looking forward to B3 more than this. Admittedly I played more MP co-op than any other MP mode for R2. That was brilliant as it really ensured you played with a balanced team.
Pretty graphics for the game, the character models on the chimera side are all identical with the change of the shoulders in color/style, but the gameplay is pretty fun. The domination style playmode is more fun than the deathmatch. I have seen just a few bits of lag, but it runs smooth overall. This plays closer to R1 than R2 did. The hit detection needs tweaked just a lil bit. The headshots are totally random, I will hit a sniper standing still from a few feet away in the head and the guy can still turn around and shoot at me....even at times you can see straight on shots that are hitting the head and upper torso have no effect. I dont know if it is a problem with just the stock rifle, or if other weapons have the same problem but for the most part that rifle is worthless. Even the grenade launcher, doesnt seem to do any damage whatsoever. Dont see a laark or the air fuel grenade or several other guns from the other 2 games. I wonder if those will unlock at some point in the full game. I will pick this one up at some point around release, probably a newegg/amazon deal but I dont need it day 1 after playing the beta. Its fun but its not gonna cause me to camp outside the store.
