Good, but lacking

by Hans on 12/4/2008

This follow up to the PS3 blockbuster franchise is good, but still lacks some of the features that made the first one so great. Co-op story mode is now and online or locally networked PS3's only feature. Otherwise players wanting to play co-op on the same console will have to settle for either online death matches, or a lackluster co-op story mode in which you don't play the same story as you would in single player story mode. Instead of a sequential story line, local co-op mode drops players into random settings and maps which do not lead to any type of story. Along with co-op being different this time around, the game also took away the ability of carrying several different guns as was possible in the first one. Now only two guns are possible to carry at any given time. Although the single player story line is great, and the 60 player online maps are huge, the game still lacks certain features that should have been included.

Review Despite the opening barrage of combat, Insomniac has a much better handle on pacing this time around, happy to release the throttle every now and again to give you a chance to catch your breath. At first it is all urgency and carnage, but as events unfold you'll find a nice ebb and flow to the gaming which makes for a far more compelling play. Indeed, once you really get into the swing of things about two hours in, settling into the way the story is told and getting into the gameplay groove, you'll really get a thirst for more, more, more...It succeeds because it doesn't just try to throw more humans into the same old environments and gameplay. It offers a smart three class system that encourages savvy team-work, an experience meter that builds to enable special attacks and uses levels designed specifically for the mode to maximise the resulting gameplay. It also dynamically shifts the action to take into account the number and skill of players in each game, making for near endless replayability. It's a hit, pure and simple...Resistance 2 is certainly good value for money. If you're online, you'll get a year's worth of gaming out of it no worries at all, while there is enough there to offer single players solid entertainment too. There's nothing particularly elegant or genius about the way the game has been developed: it is just a straight-up action shooter that hangs its hopes on a cool story idea and a wicked arsenal...Definitely check it out.

Quotes
1UP ...an extremely well-assembled FPS, with an improved campaign, fun competitive multiplayer, and a damn neat take on co-op.
Cheat Code Central This is a must-buy in every sense of the phrase; entertainment that truly sets the bar for the FPS genre both on the PS3 and for gaming in general.
IGN The single player is epic in scope and in story, which is practically worth the price of admission by itself.
NZGamer Resistance 2 is gutsier, it's gorier, and it's much, much bigger.
Playstation Official Magazine Resistance 2 is fixed in all the ways we wanted--it's bigger, tighter, meaner--and the online is trying extraordinary new things.
