Resistance 2 is not perfect but it is one of the best games I`ve had the pleasure of playing on Playstation 3 and this generation, there`s no way around it. The score does not mean perfection, it refers to the quality of the game that lets it distinguish itself from others in the genre. The epic campaign would be itself more than enough to secure a high score but Insomniac gives us cooperative and competitive modes that raise the game to a superior level. Resistance 2 is a epic that should be alongside any Playstation 3.
Not many gamers will actually get the advertised 400+ hours of life out of it, but the solo, co-op, and competitive multiplayer options should keep R2 spinning in your PS3 well past the holiday season, and probably until Killzone 2 arrives.
The evolution over the first game is quite remarkable, more depth in the characters and with more action, a bigger and more balanced Multiplayer, a new cooperative mode that is unique, its visuals and animations are a huge improvement.
When it comes down to it, Resistance 2 is bigger, faster, and just plain better than the original - and the original was quite good. It may have its shortcomings, but the sheer enormity of everything that is offered on the disc overshadows the game's minor slip-ups.
Fast paced from beginning to end, visually impressive and with a great multiplayer serving as the icing on an already delicious cake, Resistance 2 has earned its right to rub shoulders with the greatest of the genre.
Resistance 2 has a rubbish single-player campaign, which left me angry and confused. The lack of coherent storytelling is my biggest issue, but there's really nothing wrong with the overall gameplay. I am still of the opinion that the rest of the package makes it one of the best multiplayer shooters currently out for the PlayStation 3. Though my experience with the co-op definitely varied depending on the group I was with, it never ceased being entertaining.
Game became much better than terrible first part. The protagonist now knows more than 2 words, learned how to run.
Developers added normal cut-scenes, added auto health regeneration, normal shooting mechanic, action scenes, better plot presentation. The picture became more pleasant, more interesting locations.
Game on medium difficulty is too difficult, some enemies could oneshot me, too many enemies at once, little disbalanced. Bad checkpoints, pause doesn't work, on pause I can be killed, and you can't skips the cut scenes.
This game can be better.
