1UP - Resistance 3 Review: is Almost Insomniac's Best Game

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.

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time is Insomniac's finest game IMO.

Hoping this is just as fun.

Its strange how the sites that everyone insisted would give it terrible scores are handing R3 some nice scores

mayberry4469d ago

@ smash^ Some would say the review scores going up for "sony" titles are hand in hand with the "install" base going up too... hmmm...?

Nes_Daze4469d ago

I wouldn't doubt it, I enjoyed Resistance 1 more than a few Ratchet and clank titles, now to see if R3 is actually the best they've made, you gotta love the R&C series though.

If you have a PS3... Buy this game; It's awesome!

Resistance 3 is such a great game. One of my all time bests.

cooperdnizzle521d ago

Couldn’t agree more. Still love It as a shooter to this day.

Just something about that game. I really wish they would just do a remaster, don’t even need a remake just bring it up to todays out put, touch up a few things if any, and I am there to buy it day one.

Of course I would love a remake built from the ground up. As long as they treated it like Shadow of the Colossus, or close to those type of remake. Wouldn’t want it to get the RE treatment…. Just because the game is already paced so perfect and hits all the right beats that I wouldn’t touch that aspect.

My take:

Single player
3, 2, 1

3, 1, 2

3, 2, 1

I beat the lengthy single player in 1 multiple times and spent hours in the online too. Plus 1 featured my home town! Special mention to the audio design in 1: playing that with surround headphones blew me away.

Note: I have the platinum for Resistance 2.

Eidolon577d ago

Resistance 1 MP will always be my favorite. Call it nostalgia or whatever, but that was my jam, felt more balance, natural.

Miraak82 577d ago

i have the platinium too , 10k kills in online ranked matches was no joke . Took me 3-4 months straight grinding but it was fun . To put it in perspective you only got like 25 kills per match if you were 1st place every match that's at Least 400 matches in 1st

Sciurus_vulgaris579d ago

I only played the 3 main Resistance titles. My ranking would be;
1. Resistance 3
2. Resistance: Fall of Man
3. Resistance 2

GoodGuy09579d ago

Man I loved 3's campaign. Another gem stuck on the ps3 and who knows if insomniac will go back to the franchise.

fr0sty578d ago

Resistance, Warhawk, MAG, Motorstorm, there's so many first party gems on PS3 that Sony has just left to die...

Never played Burning Skies but I still have Retribution.

monkey602578d ago

Burning Skies was about 3 hours long and rather inconsequential. You haven't missed anything

porkChop578d ago

Honestly, Burning Skies was shit. There's no two ways about it. At first I thought it looked terrible, then I second guessed myself. Big mistake.

darthv72577d ago

Retribution has this really cool feature where you could use a PS3 to link a controller to it and play. So if you had a 2000 or 3000 hooked to a tv, you can use a real controller. All of this predates the PSP Go's ability to sync a sixaxis to it via bluetooth.

Resistance 3 was shocking and brilliant. Loved it.
