it's a clear improvement for the franchise. It's one of the most well-made shooters on the market. It's worth your time to play if you like FPS games, and that applies to both fans and non-fans alike. It's pretty cool to have a damn good game like this in September, rather than trapped in the nightmare that is November. For two-thirds of the campaign and for multiplayer in general, what it lacks in originality or innovation, it makes up for with pure polish and craft. Yet some inconsistencies, missed opportunities, and an end sequence that peters out rather than brings it all together (I realize that this isn't part of the popular "let's end it as a trilogy" moment, but considering that how Insomniac personnel aren't sure whether they'll be making the next installment, it almost feels like a sign-off) ultimately prevent it from being a great game overall. It's easy to say that this is the best Resistance title, but it's also easy to say that it's not Insomniac's best game.
There are some epic PlayStation Plus Premium shooters, from Naughty Dog's Uncharted series to the high-stakes action of Doom published by Bethesda.
