I hadn't played any of the Resistance games since the first. It was my first. When I comes to PlayStation 3. Resistance: The Fall of Man, was the first little taste of that PS3 can do. Resistance 3 is a far bigger bite. Worth a rent for sure. And the PS Move works like a dream if you have it.

I was immediately intrigued by this game and immersed myself fully into this story. Needless to say it falls short and seems to drag on when it really doesn't have to and clearly just tried filling in a few pointless missions which are too long and full of mowing down countless enemies with your arsenal of weapons.
Somehow your character is carrying over 10 weapons which are not customizable but all have a special ability that comes along with each. However only 2 or 3 of these abilities are actually useful against the hundreds of enemies you will be killing in every mission. Enemies seem to line up to your gun for you to easily kill them when they are not shooting at you through cover.
Graphics seemed subpar but somewhat up to date which makes sense considering the creators designed over 5000 enemy grunts you can kill in roughly 3-5 hits depending where you hit and which gun you use. Reminding me of Call of Duty World at War, Resistance 3 has the exact same WW2 feel which makes sense considering it is the 1950's.
Overall this game had a lot of potential but to me the largest short comings on this game were a terrible AI on both enemies and teammates, pointless dull missions that are dragged out for far too long, and a dull story that I found completely unappealing and boring. The only good I found in this game was the new unique weapons that are not found in other games making this a nice change in pace, however short lived.
Good game for people into the aliens and supernatural. I really liked that the buttons were just like COD. Storyline got a little old and the graphics weren't the best. Some times there were just to many bad guys to shoot that all you could do was high tail and run. I liked that your guns would gain levels and improve, I didn't like that you couldn't decide whether or not you wanted to add a scope it just did it automatically. Could have been a much better game with some more thought into it. Overall, worth the rent, not worth the buy.
