This is a very good launch title. On to the ratings:
Graphics (7): I must say that this is if all things are equal, and if you have a TV doing 1080p the graphics are probably a 9. The clarity of a 1080p game is amazing. Anyway, the overall graphical power is much higher than last gen games, but not quite what the ps3 is capable of. However, I'm one who would sacrifice some graphics for a smooth frame rate and this game is incredibly smooth.
Sound (9): Explosions everywhere. If you have surround sound you will not be disappointed. You can hear your enemies talking in their weird language as well. The music is fitting for the environments and scenes you play through. Professional, without any real flaw.
Controls (9): The controls where great, no real complaints.
Fun (8.5): It's an incredibly fun game and much more polished than any other game for the ps3 to date. I recommend it for anyone that just wants to play a fun game. It's not the "end all" of fps, but if you're not a nerd who cant enjoy a game if it's not groundbreaking, then you will find that this game is terrific. Not Halo, but still a very good BUY or RENT. Oh, and wait till the sequel before comparing graphics to other systems you silly people.
people r too harsh with the ratings on this site ths game is great i would of gave it a ten but it needs a tiny bit of work but thats besides the point the game is intense if u any any hdtv and internet conn ur sure too have a great thrilling time the offline is as intesne as the online all round great game not another one like it in the world
To say the least Resistance is a Solid title. I'm not to big on FPS, and especially not on console but Resistance was easily one of the best shooters I've ever played. And though I would'nt quite put it in the league of a game like Half Life 2 it easily delivers and establishes something close to that level of overall quality.
The AI is pretty good and you can see where it's only going to be getting better in the next installment or in the next year or two. For a launch title it seems Insomniac did a good job with enemy AI and though it's nothing spectacular it's a step up from the gargoyle enemies we all to often have faced.
The Story is actually pretty decent to good. Though it's nothing spectacular it's much better than most FPS stories. The weapons are all pretty cool (Insomniac came up with a couple sick Guns again), as are some of the new frags (ie: Hedgehog). The Level Design is above average to excellent imho, and again, the overall game is simply Solid. No camera issues, sound is good, gameplay is great, story is decent...
Co-Op campaign and online play are both excellent. In Co-Op if you or your friend goes down there's either a 30 second respawn (believe it was 30 sec; forget) or whomever is alive can come revive the other. All around the Co-Op just gives you another way to play the game, and lets you enjoy it with a friend. I played with a lame duck and I possibly had as much fun playing it Co-Op.
This is every bit what I expected, and imho is easily a must own title. It's easily a high quality game and it delivers on multiple angles and imo delivers in value. Between it being good enough to want to actually play 2, 3 or even 4+ times to the Co-Op and online play there's plenty of gaming to be had to warrant $6o imo. If you're not going to buy it then by all means at least do yourself a favor and rent it, have some fun with it, and enjoy it. Just be an idio and go into it thinking you're getting Halo or HL 2 or something, this is Resistance; 1/1
