I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet-- Resistance 2 is a blast. There aren't many games I've played that I can honestly say are all fun, all the time. However, Resistance 2 more than earns this discription. My boyfriend and I both fell in love with this game the minute we blew an alien to pieces using exploding magnum shots. For those of you who don't care to read a long drawn out essay, here are the pros and cons of Resistance 2:
PROS - excellent gameplay. A nonstop good time from start to finish. - fantastic voice acting. - a solid storyling that keeps you interested without bogging you down. - great controls and UI. - AMAZING multiplayer/co op modes. - multiple difficulties, modes, and trophies keep you coming back.
CONS - no co op story mode. This is all too rare in games these days.
I won't put the graphics in either the pros or cons department, because it really doesn't fit in either one. The game is a tad old at this point, and some pixelation shows this. It is not a big deal-- the only time I actually notice it is some of the shots being fired from certain guns and some fire graphics. For the most part the game looks great; in fact the graphics were most definiately ahead of their time when it was originally released.
IN SUMMARY: BUY THE GAME! it's fantastic, and you won't regret it. This game has left me eagerly awaiting Resistance 3 which comes out later this year!
