the offline game is fun, & the online play is amusing to say the least. I saw there was 60 players in a room and I joined up...my first round I got 40 kills but had 75 deaths...Everytime I was shooting someone, 10 of their friends were shooting me in the back. If you can handle grenades and like run & gun...this game is for you. I get tired of run & gun after a few matches so the replay value for me is none. Weapons are good but not nearly lethal enough.

Alright this game is far more fun than the first. Its hard at some parts but not all. The weapons are better, and the bosses are easy to kill. Haven't played co-op yet but you can play with up to 8 people which is more than any other co-op game on any system. The graphics are better. The multiplayer is fun and allot of people can be played with up to 60 people at once more than any other game i've seen. So get this game don't even rent it.

I own all 3 systems and this is the second best shooter I have ever played and the best in many ways. Resistance 1 was a really good game, especially when considering it was a launch title. But they took everything good about the first game and improved on it.
First the graphics were amazing and maybe the best I have ever seen. I actually took some Chimera fire while looking around at the scenary. I used to always use Gears of War as the game to compare as greatness in graphics well this game has surpassed that.
Second, the gameplay is intense and the controls are tight and responsive. My heart was pounding through a lot of the game because of the feeling of being overwhelmed. But that is what amazed me about the game was that no matter how overwhelmed I felt by the enemies I knew if I thought about the situation there was a solution. The weapons were also the best that I have ever seen in a shooter.
The story was improved and very good but there are very few shooters that I think of as "great" stories but this one was above average as far as shooters go. I missed the narrator from the first though but I guess it wouldn't have made since to bring her back considering her commentary from the first.
If you own a PS3 this is a must play. If you have a friend that owns a PS3 convince him to get it and go play his copy. This is my favorite PS3 game to date and yes I have played MGS but that is a rant for a different place.
