Resistance 3 is hands down the best shooter i've played this year.
It has superb mechanics, stunning graphics, a good story that doesn't make you cringe (see every other shooter out there, especially KZ3, which was laughable), and a lot of replay value. I've returned to the campaign mode many times to replay certain incredible set pieces.
The guns in this game are spectacular - each one feels completely unique and has a clear strategic value. They feel powerful, realistic AND fantastical at the same time.
The alien enemies in the game are grisly and ferocious. I was definitely scared of them in many situations, particularly an amazing set piece fighting through a destoyed building in NYC in the last act, surrounded by aggressive snipers and charging shock troops - in the dark!
This game has no recharging health - this is a great choice, as it reintroduces fear into each encounter no matter how small. I'd forgotten what that tasted like in a game. I love gears of war and COD, which produce the classic video game adrenalin rush, but resistance 3 is working very often like a horror game. I did not expect this and was frankly thrilled by it.
The game is very polished and has generally excellent and aggressive AI. I never felt like i was on a duck hunt.
I love sci-fi shooters, and for me this kicked crysis 2 into a cocked hat.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
