Insomniac isn't going to turn over the FPS genre this year by any stretch of the imagination - this is still the classic FPS formula with more polish and playability. Regardless, the studio has managed to increase the big blockbuster moments that slap your face for attention and tend to the finer details that will keep you engaged throughout all the bits in-between.
It might be too late for some players, but with the final segment of its trilogy Resistance has finally met its promise. It's still big men firing big guns at big enemies - but now there's a big chunk of depth below its surface, too.
There are some epic PlayStation Plus Premium shooters, from Naughty Dog's Uncharted series to the high-stakes action of Doom published by Bethesda.
