This was a good game to help pass the time between the release of Battlefield 3 and COD MW3. The graphics are very detailed, there are many weapons and upgrades to make you want to mix things up, and the story is very well written. The only negative I have was that you need an online pass to play the multi player. Overall I liked it and say it's definitely worth the rent (worth the buy if you get the online pass)
ok i love the resistance series but tis one was really good but is to short of a campaign awesome campaign but i hate how there is a online pass i hate games that do that the online is fun to good maps good graphics for single player and online overall a 8 because of the short campaign
This game is a ton of fun. It's like the best parts of Resistance 1 combined with the best parts of Resistance 2. I'm glad that regenerating health is gone, that made previous games too easy. The weapon variety is an absolute blast, and the game is just difficult enough to keep you on your toes without killing you all the time. Add in vehicle levels and we have an extremely fun and varied game.
Now for the downside. This game can get quite glitchy. Since there is no "restart from checkpoint" option, I had to kill myself at least twice to get AI to go where they needed to. Often, AI would stand near doors they were supposed to open and nothing would happen. Also frustrating is the occasional lack of direction. It's usually okay, since the overall game is rather linear, but sometimes, such as when in a giant room trying to find one little conduit to destroy, it can get quite frustrating.
I'd say definitely rent this game. Since the rental doesn't include multiplayer (you have to buy it for that), it's got a lack of replayability, I was done with the whole thing in a couple days. 8/10.
