A little more spit and polish could have significantly elevated the title to the ranks of the FPS elite. The old school gameplay was a winner in my book; just don't expect to be wowed by the plot or anything else.
I completely disagree, it is a solid 9/10 game... And before someone foolishly comes in here claiming that it's his opinion and he has a right to express it, well fine... I have the right to express myself by disagreeing. Telling everyone that you have no right to disagree with a review(someone's opinion) is doing the EXACT same thing as someone saying a review is wrong. Therefore making you a hypocrite and thus quite lame. Oh and it's submitted by Newleaf... Too many 9/10s lately, couldn't handle it?
100% agree with you, im playing co-op with my brother and its a blast. i also disagree with the low scores but hey what can you do these might be the type of people who love the rinse and repeat style of CoD. so far for me its a solid 9 also and i wont let the idiot haters tell me otherwise. yup leafy is the biggest sony hater, and ultimate M$ fanboy on this site next to a few others we can name instead of enjoying games they like to spread misery lol. also has any aussie site give this game above an 8 let alone a 9 just out of curiosity? edit i dont want to spoil it but did anyone get up to the part that absolutely just turn your stomach and made you really mad?
Newleaf seems to have issues wuth the the 8s, 9s and perfect scores R3 has been getting, so has been trying as hard as he can to find the 7s for it. Not sure why but I think many people on this site can't handle that its doing well now that most of the sites they predicted would give it a bad score didn't. So much work just to make a game look bad. I have to give these people credit though. I never try as hard as they do even if I hate a game.
Excellent game, worth 9 easily.
OMG i love This game IMO the best FPS of this gen by far.... By far
I bought it today and finished it today and campaign wise I have to agree. During one part I actually said out loud " this is f*cking unbelievable". Also, whats with the graphics hate. It looks magnificent. 9 for me easy. The story is touching as well. Not your usual Dudebro BS.
I'm enjoying it so far, but still trying to find Move settings that I'm happy with. Also, the battery in my 3D glasses ran out so I need to go and buy some more before my next session..
Great to know that I can't trust this site on any future game reviews.... This game is by far one of the most *immersive* games that if have played in a very long time. Best FPS this year.
I was Wow'd several times. I'm on my 2nd playthrough, I rented so I didn't play online. But I'm really impressed with the game, graphics and the over all feeling. The only thing is the sometimes bad A.I. But they get smarter on harder levels. Now IMHO the graphics are some of the best I've seen this gen. Is it better than KZ3?? Well Im going to have to compare the two, R3 is that good looking. As far as the campain, R3 is far superior. If you played the online beta, don't judge it buy that at all.
I'm playing thru it now and it's looking like a 7-8 at the most. Resistance has always been an average but fun series and this one is no different. Reviews are opinions but I don't get how some are giving this 9's and up. It's par for the course for a PS3 exclusive. They get hyped as the best games ever but when you actually play them you find out that they're nothing special (with exception, MGS4, Uncharted series). It's not a reason to buy a PS3 for if you don't have one and looking at it now I wish I would've waited for the soon to be price drop.
Um are you living in the past? The price drop already happened, it's not soon to be... I guess it sucks that you didn't enjoy it as much as a lot of other people did but not everyone likes everything. I see you must have super high standards though if you think MGS4 and Uncharted are the only ones that are special.
Some people are never happy and will live miserable existences. Let him be.
The only games that everyone got hyped up for and ended up not delivering are the Killzone games. Resistance 3 has delivered, and as far as this review goes, the plot of this game is one of the best aspects this game has going for it. I would be very curious to see what FPS games that these 7/10 reviewers have played over the past 4 or 5 years have had a better plot and gameplay for that matter......chances are they would say Call of Duty and Halo, but I've played a bit of all the halo games since Halo 3, and I still don't get what all the hype is about.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion, whatever the background. I'm a fan of the series, and loved the first game. I'm currently on my first play through of R3. I'm playing on hard difficulty, and without giving much away have just beaten the 'power cell' section. Yeah, it's pretty good, but to be honest I'm not blown away. There's some pretty good atmosphere, and in one earlier section I have a pretty big 'surprise' type scare too, but the action seems a bit off somehow. I'm not totally sure how though. I dunno; the shooting seems a big vague for some of the weapons. For example, at long range the Bullseye seems to hit the target even if your crosshairs aren't fully over the target. So far, the Magnum seems to be the weapon I feel happiest with: it feels right. Dunno. Maybe I just need more time with the game. I also really don't like that Marikov guy explaining everything to you like you're an idiot. It's like his only purpose is to explain plot points or types of enemies to you. If that all seems a bit negative, it's just because I'm grumbling about the stuff I'm not happy with. There's a LOT about the game that I AM happy with...
It's not about having "super high standards." I just don't see PS3 games as being as amazing as some would make them out to be. Again, there are exceptions but nothing that's mind bending beyond all belief. PS3 games get hyped-mainly by PS3 fanobys and N4G types who think that it walks on water. It's a console. It has great games, bad games and true gems. Just like anyother console. You guys just get mad unless everyone is falling all over themselves about these games. I buy a lot of PS3 games (check my trophy list). Some are great, some suck and some are good but highly overrated. Resistance 3 (as well as 1 and 2) fit into that category.
So what do you want? A cookie because other people think its a 9 and you don't. Just because you can't see why its a 9 don't mean it isn't one.Like most people you think your opinion is automatically fact. The Resistance series has made higher scores then many different games have.Many games don't even reach to this level, there are hundreds of games that don't even get past an 8 in scores. We heard this BS about UC2 with what it deserves and what it didn't. No one really cares if you think its overrated, no one really cares that much what you think about N4G or Sony fanboys. R3 is a great game end of story.There is no conspiracy or manipulation anything going on. State your opinion and move along. No one really cares that much why you think its a 7 or not.They will judge for themselves. Like most gamers you get all worked up because you didn't enjoy something as much as they did because your to busy digging and clamoring for faults. No one is pointing a gun at the reviewers' heads forcing them to give it a 9 like you seem to think.People say bad things about the PS3 all the time. What makes you think anyone would go out of their way to say otherwise?
Can you be a bigger bitch than what you're being now? I didn't say you had to like it less because I don't think that highly of it. Why don't you grow up. News flash, people have different tastes and opinions. If you don't like it stfu and move on. You wrote a four paragraph "response" because you're butt hurt that I don't agree. Good for you if you love it. No ones opinion is stopping you from that. How do you clowns function in the real world.
@ mendicant. Don't really care. Move along
Yet you cared enough to respond not once, but twice. Who should be doing the moving?
It's an insult to gamers when reviewers write that kind of crap. I'm playing the game and I know it doesen't deserve anything under 9. I'm sure they just want more traffic in their websites.
