Overview =================== This is the best game in the series. The campaign has a good pacing and great weapons. The game controls are tight and weapons are unique and satisfying to use. It is a must rent and likely buy for any resistance fan (I bought it).
Pros =================== 1) good story (unusually good for a FPS) 2) great unique weapons that are fun to shoot 3) much better multiplayer than R2 (shrinking size of maps & players)
Cons =================== 1) multiplayer is laggy right now (they are working on fixing) 2) did catch a few hiccups in the campaign (audio drops, etc).

The story mode itself was very good. The guns were very good, and fun to shoot. This game has some cons. I had some glitching in the story mode. (partner freezes offline.) Then, the thing that you have to buy something to get online made me quite angry. I think this was a great game, but you wont be able to access the Online, or co-operative gameplay. Deffinitly rent, if you like to play games over, buy it.

resistance fall of man was the first 'online multiplayer' game i ever bought. I played the life out of the online and although the story mode wasn't amazing, i really enjoyed playing it. Eventually i bought resistance 2. I really dug R2 at first, but i think i just fell into the hype. I did find the story to get more entertaining but the multiplayer took a hit in my view, WAY too chaotic. i eventually tired of it and missed R1's multiplayer. THEN Resistance 3 was announced. Let me just say that because Insomniac always showed the SAME freakin boat level over and over, i did not get too hyped up for it. Well i just got it from gamefly and beat it......and..... IT WAS AWESOME. While i missed Hale, the story was loads better than the previous two. Equipped with a new art style, incredible dynamic lighting, great cinematography, and better story telling, Resistance had me entertained from start to finish. The story is very emotional and you can really feel how desperate people are to survive. I just wished Capelli spoke a little more. Insomniac did a great job and switching up the gameplay and providing the player with different ways to play, including using a bunch of cleverly designed weapons which are a 'blast' to use. I did not shell out 10 bucks for the online pass, but i was in the beta. I am dissapointed in the major cut of online players down to 16, but the maps are so well made that it never feels empty. In the end, I feel resistance 3 is the best OVERALL game of the series. R3's story is better than 1 and 2, while its multiplayer is only better than 2. If you call yourself a gamer, don't miss out on this gem!
