May be the best in the series.
17 March 2013 | by DustinRahksiSee all my reviews

The one thing I find strange about the Resistance series is it's decline of sales, even though it gets better with each new game. The first one sold over 4 million, the second one sold over 2 million, and the the third one is barely over a million. It's sad really, quality shooters like this and Killzone get over looked for crap like Call of Duty. This game was pretty much the last in the series revolving around the story, it can't go any where from here, so it may be the end to a great series.

The Game: One thing this series consistently gets right is the graphics and atmosphere, each game has their own style, and I would say this one is the most successful. The graphics look great, especially the opening missions in the town. Sure it's no Killzone but I still think it looks great. You are now able to carry the full arsenal of weapons you find throughout the game, and you definitely need it. The difficulty is much greater here, I managed to play through most of the game on hard, but on the last mission in New York I had to lower it. It offers a good challenge if thats something you are interested in. The game play is easily the best and most refined in the series. The story line is also packs a bigger punch that previous entry's, it gets disturbing at times, like when you encounter the wardens. The grand scales has been toned down from Resistance 2, but there are still some great moments, like when your on the train and the widow-maker swarm is stampeding by the train. Overall this games campaign is very good and has some great replay value.

The multi-player: I didn't like it, it had a good presentation, but had no staying power. I didn't play enough of it to give a better opinion.

I highly recommend getting this if you are even remotely interested, it is well worth the price tag.
