Resistance: Fall of Man was the first game I played on the PS3 and thought it was incredible compared to any previous games I had played on the PS2. It was also so widely popular because it was included in so many PS3 bundles. Is this game worthy as a sequel?
Well firstly the graphics are a huge improvement and definetely compare to some of the best on the market, but the water was a bit jelly-like. Bullets could look better and having flashes of light constantly passing over the battlefield it does tend to ruin what could be a much more realistic looking shooter.
Gameplay is similar to the first game and still fun, thankfully. They borrowed some of the mechanics of other games, such as aiming with L1 rather than R3, which I think is a good thing.
The story, for me, felt weaker than the first game. There was no woman narrating as each chapter passed, you would occasionally hear a radio broadcast but other than that there wasn't much about what was happening globally.
Online was ok, co-op whilst sometimes fun became annoying because all the enemies take too many hits to kill. The 60 players competitve (against eachother) was badly executed in my opinion because you die too easily simply because there are so many other players. A lot of the time I would find it ended up with 2 large groups, each firing hundreds of bullets at the other.
Overall it's an enjoyable game but I would have expected that from all the money Insomniac made from the first Resistance they could have made a much better sequel. If you were a fan of the first then you will enjoy it but I felt it lacked some quality and polish in most compartments in the game, shame really because it had very good potential.
