A great addition to the franchise
I was worried at first that Insomniac would be working on two, possibly three major games simultaneously (Resistance 3, Ratchet and Clank All 4 One, and Overstrike) and that the overall quality of the games would suffer, especially Resistance 3. However, they have not disappointed. The graphics are great, and gameplay mechanisms from the first game are back, such as the health system and weapon wheel. The story is top-notch, and the weapons a bigger and better than ever. We see the introduction of several new weapons or new variations on old weapons, and with those new weapons, of course, come new Chimera. The Chimera have continued the split that began in R2, and are now two distinct "factions." You have the regular, hive-mind Chimera, like the hybrids, and the Feral Chimera, which are chimera such as grims, widowmakers, etc, that have gone feral, become self-sustaining, and broken from the rest. You play Joseph Capelli, from R2, and must travel to New York to stop the Chimera, leaving your family behind. I won't say anymore and spoil the story, but overall, it's a great game that lives up to the standards of the two previous iterations in the franchise. If you are a fan of the first two, get this game.
