Resistance 2 was good... but they screwed a lot of stuff up.
Resistance 3 fixes what it can and improves on everything overall.
Gameplay/Graphics/Design is all top notch of course.
The game still doesn't have it's feel of being in the past (unlike FOM) but it doesn't got bonkers like 2 where the game is supposed to be in the 1950's but plays like a futuristic Modern Combat shooter. Resistance 3 keeps it somewhere in between with a much more "wasteland-y" feel.
The towns and the people in them are much more interesting and involved than ever before. It's a much more personal story, although it's still disappointing that they killed Nathan Hale. And Capelli was lame in 2 but, I guess that's one of the things they tried to fix. He looks like the protagonist from Retribution now (and I wish he was) and he has a better personality this time.
The weapons are awesome. And the upgrade system is fantastic too.
I'm really enjoying this game. Highly recommended.
OH, and the multiplayer is some of the best out there!!!!! CO-OP!
Game ROCKS!! Always in the action, no dull moments, will buy this game its so good, graphically it is almost like a movie, enemies are scary enough to drop one in your pants when you run into them face to face, 4 words, GO BUY THIS GAME!
