*Spoiler Alert In Story*
"You may not recognize Insomniac by name, but most will recognize them by game. Perhaps better known as the studio behind Spyro the Dragon and Ratchet & Clank, the crew over at Insomniac has built almost the whole of their reputation on charmingly cute platformers."
But there's a side to Insomniac many aren't aware of, one that came before Ratchet, before Spyro. Way back in 1996, Insomniac released their debut PlayStation game, Disruptor. An inventive first-person shooter, Disruptor was dark, fast-paced, and violent. It's a sharp contrast to Insomniac's later efforts, and after almost an entire decade of nothing but lighthearted cartoony platformers, you can see why they were eager to do something different.
Enter Resistance: Fall of Man. Insomniac's launch title for the PlayStation 3 isn't a happy place; it's gritty, realistic, and basically everything their past seven games weren't. And much like the oft-forgotten Disruptor, Resistance is story-driven first-person shooter with a strong emphasis on creative weaponry.
