Very Good

Fun but dated now

I've only played the single player game so I can't comment on the multiplayer portion of the game.

Gameplay: Controls are good. The standard layout for playstation FPS. Smooth play throughout the game.

Length: I'm not sure how many hours I've put in off the top of my head (I'm not in front of my PS3), but I would say the single player campaign is of sufficient length. I've been playing the game in fairly long play sessions so I can finish it, but have had to put the game down to maintain sanity and other such things.

Audio/Video: Graphics are dated compared to late 2008 games, but that is to be expected. I would say the graphics are good for the games release time frame. Audio quality is good and haven't noticed any problems with it.

Overall: If you're looking for the newest things with cutting edge graphics, this isn't it. But, I have found it fun to play and it definitely makes me look forward to playing Resistance 2.

One thing to mention though it may be a quirk...the game locked-up on me once during a loading scene, but I didn't have any other problems.

This review is based on the single player campaign only. If you like sci-fi shooters then you will enjoy this game. The game seemed to get better as it progressed. The graphics are good, some of the alien structures are huge and have a cool atmosphere. I also liked that you can carry multiple weapons at one time. I did prefer the alien weapons over the human weapons. The aliens have some unique land mines that make the levels fun to traverse. I really enjoyed this game, the graphics are good but not the best out there. The gameplay more than makes up for any graphic issues. Overall I would recommend this game as a buy. I'm looking forward to resistance 2.

So, this game is a 5 year old game, and it shows. I picked it up to play through this and the second one before the new one came out.
This game looks like at one point it may have been great. But it does not stand the test of time.
The shooting mechanics are dated. The levels are beyond linear, and are quite rudimentary.
Now I dont want to give this game a low score just because it is older, but the fact that it doesnt stand the test of time definatly makes it a 6 for me
