It's a depressing time to be human. The Chimera are settling in and mopping up what is left of humanity.
from where in f***ing world do these people come? how come a 6.75?? Resistance deserves much more than that!!!!:-/
NGL, I don't even get the score tbh. I mean, the review itself sounds like they really enjoyed it...So why the low score??
Probably one of the worst reviews i have ever seen, and not just because of their low scores, but because the things they critisize are extremely minor, yet still give a horrible score. As soon as you start watching the review they start making fun of the game. I was actually shocked because they seem like a good team, but their critcs could all be answered with one frase "so what?" opinions my ass, this is pure hits-bait
i Just finished the game.. this game for the campaign along is a solid 9/10 and once you UNlearn cod and learn resistance this game is easily a 9.5. I have enjoyed it A LOT!!
@Masta_fro: My thoughts exactly. I can kinda see why the constant "Joe"s might be annoying or the depressing story might not be to everyone's taste, but they certainly aren't big enough reasons to mark the game's score down...because they aren't even genuine faults in the game! The same goes for their "lack of different enemy types" complaint. Sure it might be a MINOR annoyance to some people, but who cares how many enemy varieties there are? I mean, do people complain when most shooter's use the same gun-toting human enemies over and over again?
Right below "Read Full Review" click the website, then click "WTF" and then click "NO". These guys are idiots.
I know this review is this guys opinion but i just can't take it too seriously lol. He/she have no tastes in games.
Or they just dont like Resistance lol Its funny cause i hear some people saying "they just wanted hits" Well guess what.... we have them hits
@sage oh i didnt click on the link i just read what some here said what theyve read. plus 90% of the reviews of very favorable with 8s - 100 so i just reason that those who want to drop low scores just dont care or just want hits.
Frankly, it's bullshit. Over-critical failure of a review.
I bet they gave Angry Birds a 10/10 saying it the best story ever. s/ The site is wack. Don't give hits.
desperate for hits...
For hits they are desperate...
The thing is, Good Game is a (fairly popular) show on Australian tv that has been running for a few years. And their page is on the channel's website, not their own. So I sadly don't think this review was done to get hits. :(
Hmmm...not really sure why my comment is getting Disagrees? I was only poiting out that the review is from a tv show, not a website. Are people disagreeing with the "it's a tv show" part, or the "it's not their website" part? :/
I'd say disagreeing on the hits part. Nobodies going to click on every 9 and 10 review this game gets but they will click on low scored games because they know peoples curiosity will take over
Popular my arse. Its a shit show with shit hosts. You guys should just stick to reviewing casual games and leave 'good games' to the grown ups. Edit: I include 'you' in my comment as all you do is post their shit, so please do us all a favour and don't.
Just because it's a shit show, doesn't mean people don't watch it though. It's obviously geared towards a non-gamer/casual crowd, and that must work for them because the ratings aren't all that bad for a ABC2 show. Not every gamer is into internet forums and game sites, so they use tv to get their gaming news.
can someone honestly give me an honest review? i just paid today, and i want to buy this, but all i've seen is that its great or its a tad above average. i loved r2 better than r1... i know may be one of the few, just throwing that out there...
if you like halflife 2 you will LOVE this game. nonstop action setpieces with awesome atmoshphere and great shooting mechanics. Just fun to play and hard to put down. Best fps this year so far. The graphics are not the best in the genre but it makes up for it in everything else. 3D makes a difference. Game feels like Halflife 2, pacing like uncharted 2, and effects like Killzone. SERIOUSLY! In no way should this game get under a 7.5. Personally it is 8-9 depending on taste.
Hei Im with you, I liked R2 more R1 and wow, I started playing yesterday...ITS ONE HELL OF A RIDE! killzone was my favorite fps on ps3, but this is just superb, crown to resistance, without question
9+/10 so far for me.
everyone is in love with the game and they can't put it down. first impressions here can be read here http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Got it day1 love its fu is great single player is fun as well is mulitiplayer
I threw up a little in my mouth while watching that site
don't go by other peoples opinions.If the game catches your attention,buy it or rent it! everyone has different preferences.What may work some some may not work for others.and vise versa
This should collect some nice points for the submitter
'The Resistance games haven't been known for their storytelling' stopped listening right there
Wow, they said that? I won't even click their stupid link. 6.5/10 should have all gaming review rights revoked.
Don't even read the review. Even if its not as good as they wanted it to be it at least deserves an 8 for the silky smooth game play mechanics.
DAMN. SHAME. Game reviews are useless nowadays. Everyone has an agenda.
Don't care. Why should I take the 7s and 6s seriously, when its gotten more 8s and 9s? I mean really does any gamer really do that for any game? Does anyone EVER ignore all the good scores and concentrate on the bad ones unless your either trolling or really want the game to fail?
Can't wait to get this game. Stupid rent cheque week!
I've never owned a single Resistance game and have only played the demo for the first game. I usually hate military shooters and typical alien invasion shooters but the demo had a very cool feel to it, more like the old War of the worlds type of sci-fi movies than new Hollywood ones. So I'm thinking... If I was looking to get into this series should I pick up the first two games cheap before getting this one? The dated graphics and stuff wouldn't bother me but I wouldn't want to burn myself out on the series before playing this one. Thanks in advance for any opinions.
yeah get bother so you know the story.. and the graphics arent even bad in the other 2... tho i havent played 3 yet.. (i have wayyy too many games to play)... it is a solid title. so yeas.. get the entire series.. play all 3!
Thanks for the info man.
yeah sorry for typo.. iam babysittn... -___-" iam on edge
This game is truly epic. Obviously this site is looking for hits and by that rating they didn't get one from me. And please don't try and tell me it is opinion when I've played most every fps on the market and this game gets a 6.75 from this site. Scoring this game under a 8.0 is plain bs. The game to me is a solid 9.5.
Is it possible that NOT everyone is going to like a game universally?? For every person that loves a game, car, movie, woman, man etc...there is going to be a person that HATES it as well. In this case this person didnt like R3 as much as you did. So if the game is a solid 9.5 as you stated. Why care what he writes about it. The game seems to be getting ALOT of good review scores. Someone is bound to NOT like it. IMO I like when we get a few low scores as they hopefully are pointing out the flaws or negs about the game that your NOT getting from all the 9s and 10s reviews.
A 6.75 out of 10 on a game of this quality level to me is indeed a troll for hits honestly. No reviewer who has played todays titles and then plays this could truly rate this a 6.75 which in school turns out to be a D+. So they are saying this title fails? please
@Holeran So based on what your saying is that any game that you deem a 9 or better should not be rated below that universally?? I get it YOU like the game and so do others. But ...there are some who will NOT like it. Thats a FACT!
So as usual. A PS3 exclusive gets a low score and in come the defenders....the usual list of this and thats... ..doing it for hits ...no name site ...I love this game...it isnt a (insert low score) ...it deserves a better score ....im not clicking on the site on and on and on!!! If you like the game. Why do you care if others DONT?? Im loving Dead Island....could care less if it scores a 6 or whatever. But all in all my post wont stop this from continuing :)
Edge even gave it a Dead Island a 3/10! But who cares! Resistance 3 have already gotten more than twenty two 9/10+ scores. I just love how Metacritic manages to miss almost all of them, and then manages to get all the bad reviews instead....pathetic
Ya honestly what the hell is that all about? I thought Metacritic put them all in but after watching for the past 3 months I know for a fact they leave a lot of reviews out.
Defenders LMAO. I do this for every game I really enjoyed Multiplat or Exclusive and its because I read the reviews of games that sell millions upon millions and reviewers won't dare to give them a bad score. Just look at GTA4. How many of use think GTA4 didn't deserve all those perfect 10s? My problems with the reviewers and not the scores. "Oh the game has 1 minute loading times so I'm taking points of this score" then you read a review by the same reviewer 2 months later on a game with the same long loading times and loading times ain't a problem for them. Also lets get this straight. Whenever I see an Xbox exclusive get a low score you see people in that article doing the exact same thing dude and its not a fanboy thing because once you play a game and you love it, then you hear someone say its shit well your going to question that no matter what. Oh and anything below 7 is garbage in my book. If I say a game is 6 it means I think its a piece of garbage. This ain't the movie reviews.
I havent read this particular review as I am not interested in the resistance series. I own a PS3 and maybe at a later point Ill check them out. @geddesmond When a 360 game gets a low score there isnt the same responses from fans as from Ps3 excl. take Forza for example...the few low scores it got...from my memory...the articles didnt get any heat. By and large when any 360 excl. gets a low score...the heat on that article is pretty low. But take a game such as infamous, GT5 or in this case R3. Anything below a 9 or 8...the DEFENDERS come out...LOL @ defenders (weird on my part for using that term) anyway. I do agree that some games get a pass and some dont. But is it possible that the ONE person who reviewed this game and others simply thought it was average and graded it that way? Take Dead Island. I like the game and IMO on a fun factor...a 9. But as a game it has flaws that would IMO make it a 6.5. Good but not great. But thats my opinion. Take Deus Ex for example. I love the game ...think it is very GOOD. BUt VERY flawed. (wont go into detail) But yet the game is getting 9s and 10s left and right. So in that regard...yeah thats a game that I feel is getting higher scores but none off for the flaws in the game (IMO flaws that is :) ) If the whole number system was done away with and we just got the written part ..that may help..who knows. But I know for a fact that when X game gets a LOW score...comments like this are VERY common :)
Well its funny you should mention Dead Islands 6 score one reviewer gave it because I was reading the comments on that article and everyone was questioning the 6. (When I play that game later I'm sure I'll be questioning it too). They questioned it so much that the dude who wrote the review updated the article answering some comments made here on N4G. Also for Forza you are talking about a game that released 2 years ago. I've no interest in Forza so I never read any reviews high or low and I can't comment on that or check the reviews for comments because it was so long ago. What I can do is read the comments left by people unhappy about Insanely twisted Planets low review scores and the recently reviewed Kinect horror game, whatever you call it. Unhappy people commenting on those review scores and they're games not on the PS3. I'm also sure Gears 3 will have a few low score and people will be questioning that aswel. Also WKC2 got very low scores and I didn't see anyone question them and thats for the simple fact that everyone whos played that game knows its average and only for the hardcore JRPG fans. I've played that game for 300+ hours and I'd even call it a 6. Xbox fans love to paint PS3 fanboys as these obsessive fans but the reason you see reviews being questioned is for a very good reason because once you play and like a game the things said in the review have no legs to stand on. Lol take this review here, they scored the game down because through out the campaign the name Joe is said about 20 times. Wow great points made in the review.
Im enjoying the co op on hard. Bit more challenging. For some reason you cant pause...strange but its not too much of a biggie
I've been playing it for 3-4hrs and it's a good game and one that every fan should play. That being said the graphics are poorly done with sooo much blurring of textures when your in the outdoors it makes looks like they forgot how to work with the PS3 hardware. It is NOWHERE near as sharp as R2 and that alone makes most of the low review scores acceptable. Also, I agree that you don't really care about the characters because the story isn't as fleshed out as it should be. I'd give it a 7 overall. Sorry, sometimes the truth hurts.
Apparently for the ppl who disagree your truth (opinion) hurts :)
It's good game, an absymal Australian TV show. Sadly its one of about 3. They only like casual games. The show and people on it are horse shit.
This part of the review gets me "We couldn't test out online but split screen wasn't bad." Wait one god damn minute, you're reviewing something that you haven't even played, seriously WTF?
Ironic that a show called 'Good Game' doesn't know a good game when they have one. Total newbs, complaining that the game is too hard because it doesn't have regenerating health. This is what I meant when I said critics don't know what they want. R2 they frowned on regenerating health and wanted health packs back, so now R3 hits with a plentiful supply of health packs and already one critic wants regenerating health back *facepalm*. Stay in school kids.
