Resistance fall of man came with my ps3 in a bundle, i had no idea if it was any good and didn't check out any reviews or videos before playing it and i loved it.
So, i didn't hesitate preordering resistance 2 because it is obvious to me that it is going to be as good if not better than the first installment.
I downloaded the beta trial and gave it a couple of goes, i didn't want to over do it as i prefer to wait for the full game before i become over accomodated with it.
The new levels were good fun, the format similar (a good thing i think, if it ain't broke why fix it?) so i think that the game will go further than campaign in terms of online battles once i've mastered all the weapons etc.
Have looked at a few in game campaign videos on youtube and i was really excited, more so than playing the online beta.
This was due to the fact that you can instantly identify all of the factors that made the original games' campaign mode so gripping; the unpredictable, chaotic surroundings, explosions going off in all directions, the crazy huge mecha enemies, the twisted look of the chameira, the dark, eerie moments are also still present bringing the horror atmospherics into play to keep you on edge.
Also there are trophies to be earned in campain mode this time which makes for a fun incentive.
Although i am convinced that i, and fans of the first game will love this one there are still a few factors with regard to online play that i am still rather intrigued about, like the online co-op campaign and as to what the 60 man matches are going to be like.
All in all, exciting! Don't be afraid to go with this game over cod5, besides everyone is saying that has the same engine as cod4..... Switch it up a little, get with the unrealistic sci fi epic that is resistance 2!
