I have to stress that Resistance 3 is a great game in its design and gameplay as it should be. The problem is when I look at the three franchises that born on PS3: Uncharted, Motorstorm and Resistance, Resistance franchise hasn't seen much of overhaul as the other two. Resistance 3 apart from couple of moments is not thrilling ride as you'd expect. Maybe it has to do with tone of story or that we are not playing as Hale anymore. R3 tries to be more atmospheric and scary unlike the last two games. One section of the game reminds me of Ravenholm of H2. As with the last 2 games i was expecting for a climatic battle that doesn't happen. It left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe because i was expecting too much.
i dont give anything a five so its a solid 4 stars.
not sure why people think it is too short, i didnt think so at all. i also dont think its like either the first or second one. (which i both liked). there's a real variety of settings and scenario's and the story has a nice feel about it. great stock of weapons too.
This game is a must for hardcore RFOM grim reapers and new fans alike! Part 2 drifted off course slightly and was indeed a surprise but now we are back on track with Part 3. There is your expected stand up battles with the Chimera and at times tense gameplay that scared the Mrs out of the room with its eerie atmospheric feel as if your in the middle of a horror film at certain points. I took part in the Beta online play and agree with earlier posts that the multiplayer element has caused some frustration but still very enjoyable. You may think the games too short, so, get stuck in with Superhuman mode once unlocked or maybe co-op with a friend. Its a great game that you can indeed revisit and forget you were supposed to help the wife with the shopping! Ooops!
