Insomniac's push for more usability testing during development.
What a joke. If they actually did any user research, they would have found that most people thought that the multiplayer sucked this time around.
I played the demo and i have to say i wasn't very impressed, the gameplay and controls felt very CODish.
The controls may feel kind of codish but the gameplay isn't. Resistance is all about creative guns, the strategy behind using each of them correctly, and big boss fights. Also having to watch your health and move around constantly in search of health and ammo, not like in other shooters where you just hide for a few seconds and you're healed. Trust me, the campaign is nothing like cod, in fact in my opinion it had the freshest campaign out of every shooter last year, and then some.
Cod, Rage, Dead Island! -_- it really improved on everything! Damn shame the ps3 community turned their heads away on this and Sony just roared it out to died with no support! It's the main reason why Insomniac said turned away from the game!
Honestly it was the COD controls that turned me off from the game but if what you guys are saying is true then maybe ill give it another try.
so you are saying that the game runs at 60 fps? because I have no idea what you mean by codish. Every game that comes out now with tight responsive controls are codish? Game plays nothing like cod, at all.
Are people really using something as simple as ADS to say a game is like COD. The guns alone makes this game a different beast.
I'm thinking the same thing everytime I see such statements.
I just got that Resistance dual pack and Resistance 3 all for 60 bucks and I must say that Resistance 2 is surprisingly good - still haven't played R3 yet. I have no idea why I didn't try this series out sooner... Oh yeah I remember, because sony released it's two best shooters in the same year and I loved Killzone 2 so naturally I bought KZ3. Then they released Resistance 3 in the same season with the two most popular FPS games on the market, the biggest RPG, and the two most popular 3rd person shooters.
Man there was a lot of shooters last year. Crysis 2, Killzone 3, MW3, bf3, uncharted 3, gears 3, resistance 3, halo anniversary, rage etc. A lot of 3s last year too. I agree though on R2, a lot of people didn't like it, but it was still a great game. However, R1 will always remain as one of my favorite fps of all time.
