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 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 beams. Burned and mangled, it appears that there will be little to no survivors. As the battle continues across the United States you're sure to encounter many new, deranged, and much more powerful enemies.
In Chicago, you'll be joined by a squad of soldiers all carrying different weapons. To survive and move through the level, you'll need to work together moving from cover to cover, setting up your squad in a smart and defensive manner. These are just a few examples of the challenging levels you'll encounter as you battle your way across the country to save mankind. And if you're hoping for new weapons, Resistance 2 won't leave you disappointed. The US-based campaign is loaded with tons of new weapons to enhance the overall game play and first-person shooter experience.
Online game play Goes BIG
Powered by Insomniac Games' third-generation PlayStation 3 technology, Resistance 2 delivers several console gaming breakthroughs. Most impressive are the stand-alone, class-based, online co-operative campaign mode that can accommodate up to eight players, and the mind-blowing, 60-player, squad-based online competitive multiplayer battle fest. This unprecedented 60-player option could revolutionize online multiplayer game play, and is sure to provide countless hours of action-packed fun.

I rate the multiplayer a 5 out of 5. Fun, fast, hectic, and wow, soo many people online! This is the stuff of legend folks.
If your wondering, should I buy resistance 2, the answer is a resounding yes. I'm not sure I would go as far as saying its better than metal gear or GTA 4, but it is a very good game, highly enjoyable, and will get more play time from me than GTA 4 and Metal Gear (with the highly enjoyable campaign crossed with the multiplayer).
Now, on to the Collectors Edition.
I love Collectors Editions. I enjoy the making of documentaries, and most of all I enjoy the art work, the ability to see the concept work of the characters, the weapons, creatures, vehicles, is something I crave with a passion. I also enjoy seeing concepts of the environments, for me, this is very much so worth the extra 10$ (or 20$ in the case). Making of dvds are fantastic too (though this is a blu-ray which is much much preferred) I love hearing how they came up with this, problems they over came, blah blah.
Figurines can be good if they are of high quality (such as those made my McFarlane Toys).
However, for this package, I give it a 3 out of 5.
The game is a very enjoyable game, I cannot recommend it enough. It is money well spent. Sadly I cannot say so about this "Edition" of the game.
Here is what you get.
You get a crappy figure (I say crappy because it is similar to the kind of toy you would get for 4-6 dollars at walmart for a kid, there is little to no detail, no rich texture, and the thing looks washed out.Read more ›

I personally own a few Collector/Special Editions and honestly I have to say this is the most disappointing one out of all of them. The most disappointing item in this set is definitely the art book. As you can see from my video, the art book is extremely short and lacks any real detail. No aspect of the game is really explored with detail in the book, especially when compared to the Fallout 3 and Bioshock 2 art books. Both of those art books are very detailed and even contain notes by the people who actually worked on the games. Unfortunately, none of that is really present here.
The Chimera Hybrid figure is thankfully better than the art book. Some have complained that it lacks detail, but honestly it is not as bad as they might lead you to believe. Check out my video to see a bit of the figures detail and decide for yourself if it lacks detail.
The other items in the set include a unique cover art for the game, a download code for a weapon skin, and the bonus disc. The cover art itself is better than the one used for the Standard Edition of the game, and the bonus disc is actually a Blu-ray disk. The contents of the Blu-Ray are not terrible and is indeed better than the art book since it does contain some behind the scenes footage.
The truth is that this Collector's Edition really is very disappointing. Nothing really stands out as a great item within the set. If your considering whether to buy this Collector's Edition or the Standard Edition of Resistance 2, go with the Standard Edition of the game.Read more ›
The couple areas where the game lacks are in visual consistency. The game has a much larger scope and scale to it compared to its predecessor, and maybe some blatant low res textures in the environment can be forgiven because of this. But they do stand out like a bit of an eye sore since the rest of the game looks so good. Cars are a good example, although this may be because they are destructible.
The other complaint is the story just doesn't seem as compelling as the first, and doesn't really pull the player in. It's kinda just there because it has to be. I suppose it helps move the game along faster but I liked the narration of the first, and the characters seemed more interesting as a result.
All in all if you liked the first at all or are looking for a good shooter on PS3 you really can't go wrong with this game. It's the best shooter on the system so far by far.
