Product Description

In the highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Sony PlayStation 3 game, Resistance 2 is an alternate-history, first-person shooter that puts you in the heroic role of Sgt. Nathan Hale as he struggles against overwhelming odds to defend humankind from an insurmountable Chimera.

Resistance 2 takes up right where Resistance Fall of Man left off. Hale is kidnapped by a black ops group in London and forced to Iceland for research testing. The full scope of what happens in Iceland is a mystery, but the game reveals that as Hale wrestles with the insidious Chimera war machine, he must also battle the virus raging inside his body that threatens to transform him into the very creature he fights against.

The Return of the Chimera
The Chimera are the main enemies of the Resistance franchise. For those new to the story, it is believed that the Chimera are of extraterrestrial origin. Yet, it is known that their army expands by infecting humans with a virus that transforms humans into Chimera while inside a cocoon. These creatures are much stronger than humans, and they usually have multiple yellow eyes. They have remarkable healing abilities and thrive in very cold temperatures, which has led them to alter the Earth's climate to a much lower temperature that better suits their habitat requirements.

Resistance 2 introduces several new Chimeran enemies with a host of new powers. A few new characters include the Chameleon, a creature that can cloak itself completely and kill a player in one, destructive blow, and the Grim, which are a terrifying species that attack in hordes.

The Battle Moves to the United States
After the brief opening scenes in London and then Iceland, game play jumps ahead two years and across the globe to San Francisco. Giant, mile-long motherships slowly cruise through the skies, demolishing the city with fiery bea

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid and enjoyable shooter 15 Sep 2009
By Trigger
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite numerous comparisons both for and against, the Resistance series isn't of the impeccably high quality that graced the Halo series and the Gears of War games. Of course, being an exclusive Sony first-person shooter it would always be subject to such expectations against its Xbox peers, and while it's clear that Insomniac's third FPS has grand aspirations, it doesn't quite reach those giddy heights at the top of the shooter genre. However, enough judging it on other games' merits; Resistance 2 isn't going to change the world but nonetheless it's a solid and well-designed shooter with some great weapons, oppressive and varied enemies and some superb multiplayer modes.

Once again you step in to the shoes of Lt. Hale; survivor the the British assault depicted in the first game and at an advanced stage of Chimeran infection. Two years have passed and Hale has been assembled with three other infected soliders to form the Sentinels; an outfit designed to use the 'benefits' of the virus to execute special operations whilst keeping the mutation in check using inhibitors. At the front line of the US defence, the Chimeran forces attack the nation - the last human stronghold - seemingly for nothing more than global domination. Under the command of 'Daedalus' - a former infected US soldier, and successor to the first game's Angels - the Chimera systematically break through US defences and beat back the human forces. The characters are a little hackneyed but the plot is quite interesting - plus, there's a sort of unexpected twist and cliffhanger at the end, paving the way for the third in the series.

Like Fall of Man, Resistance 2 is a strictly linear affair, with exciting and explosive set-pieces guiding the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Game you must own 28 Jan 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The last Resistance was a great game and I played it online right up till Killzone 2 got released so needless to say I was looking forward to this one and I was certainly not disappointed. This is a game I would recommend to anyone with a PS3 and a love of FPS it really is one of the best games on PS3. It has pretty good graphics, some very smart weapons (I'ma big fan of the Auger) and the story might be pretty short (around 12 hours long but you can always play it on the highest difficulty which isn't too difficult) but it's very good and has some of the finest boss battles ever (particularly the battle with the monster that'll make you think of the cloverfield monster).

Another thing I feel I should mention is the online which is unlike anything else on PS3. There's an online campaign with 8 different pretty big levels and there's all the modes you'd expect for an FPS team deathmatch etc, which has a maximum of 60 players so the games can be hectic at times!.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great sequel 4 Oct 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved the first game and this is in many ways the perfect sequel, better graphics and sound, better levels and overall gameplay.
I'm yet to try the multiplayer but so far the campaign mode is excellent with some really nice set pieces and level designs, highly recommended, especially at this excellent price!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise! 12 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the first resistance and really enjoyed it, so I looked forward to receiving the sequal. Although I didn't find it as enjoyable as the first one, it does get much better the more into the story line you go, I would have given this a 4 and a half star rather than 5 star if I were able. At the end of the original you see a little cutscene which is the beginning of this game, it is nice how it leads on but things seem to have changed very quickly with the win of the first game as you will see when you play (I try not to give spoilers!)

A couple of the low points: The voice of Hale as changed, I do not feel he is as good as the original but then there is not that much dialogue from him in this one compared to the original. There is not the split screen campaign mode like the first one either. There are a couple of enemies that will insta-kill you with one hit, this can be very annoying as you have to redo some parts. I found that the main baddie at the end of the game was a bit too easy to defeat and you are told how to do it during play.

Unsure point: Instead of health bars, when you get hit the screen starts to turn red at the edges and so you have to run into cover to regain health, I cannot decide if I like this aspect or not, some people love it/hate it.

Good points: There are lots more enemies to face and more weapons to use, a few from the original and there is the trophy system if you enjoy that. unlike the original you cannot carry all the types of weapons, you are limited to two so you have to be a bit more careful in your usage. You have more variety of grenades to use, they do have some good effects.

2.0 out of 5 stars 1950's setting, 1990's gameplay 6 April 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
With such an abundance of quality multi-platform first-person shooters available to today's HD consoles, it's only natural - if unfair - that rare exclusives such as Resistance 2 become the centre of unwanted attention; reviews obsesses over how `exclusive A' on Xbox compares to `exclusive B' on the PS3 and visa-versa. In the case of the Resistance Franchise, huge numbers of Xbox devotees decry the series as a poor man's Halo, while their PlayStation counterparts put forth facts about 60-player online, the cell-processor and more.

The fact is, whatever side you're on, Resistance 2 is a platform blockbuster that underwhelms, particularly in single player, comparing rather unfavourably to many average multi-platform games, let alone stellar exclusives.

No review should be completely based on comparisons to other titles, but the way in which Resistance 2 fails to ape aspects of key FPS games makes it nearly impossible.

At its very best, R2 is a fast, gory and typically linear shooter with a good combination of sci-fi and near-historic weaponry, but one that criminally under-uses an evocative and fresh 1950's setting - an alternate history where WW2 never happened, and the states of the world unite under alien invasion as `resistance' movements.

You'd think from the marketing campaign that you'd be playing across wasted American landscapes, fighting tooth and nail under famous landmarks.

Visually Resistance 2 is a mixed bag. Many areas suffer from some incredibly muddy and low resolution textures which are shown up by some very poor lighting. Read more
