GAME Resistance 2                    

 

Overall Appeal

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Basically this is a great game that really people should be go out and play because as long as the online community stays active this is a game to hold on to

     -It should have been all co-op, but it is still fun with the parts that are.

     -Just go buy this game 

 

 

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This a very fun game, now if the campaign was playable co-op it would have been an extremely fun game. The guns are better then in Resistance: Fall of Man, the graphics are pretty good, and the class system in the co-op is an excellent addition and I hope it will be a big part of the next one

 

 

Replay Value

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -With the Online components I am not sure why you would ever trade this game in, I see all kinds of used copies for sale and I don’t understand why. As long as the online community stays active and you have a buddy to play with this game is a keeper

 

 

Presentation/Graphics

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The game looks pretty good, feels gritty and is a lot more engaging then Resistance: Fall of Man

 

 

Online

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This game has one of the most versatile online options I have seen in a long time. You can actually play with your PSN account and your buddy sitting next to you can play on their own PSN account and keep stats and scores separately.

     -Plus playing co-op and competitive online with a split screen co-op is how it should be done

     -However, the competitive feels a bit to chaotic with 60 players at once 30 would have been enough            

 

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Continued from Resistance: Fall of Man. Aliens, world domination, blow stuff up, the usual.

     -It helps to play Resistance: Fall of Man first

     -The co-op doesn’t have a story really just a series of missions

                       

 

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Hale is a way better character in this game then he is in Resistance: Fall of Man. He has more depth and he talks and gives orders.                        

 

Customizable

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -In the Co-op you can level up and customize your player from the 3 classes Solider, Medic and Spec Ops

     -However, there is not a ton of customization options

     -Custom controls  

 

 

Camera

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -1st person view

     -Horizontal Split Screen

     -The Auger X-ray Scope is a really nice addition    

 

 

Controls

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Fully customizable controls

 

 

Game Mode

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Single Player Campaign

     -Offline and Online Co-op Missions (2-8)

     -Online Competitive Multiplayer   (2-60)                 

    

Gameplay Options

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The game is based on linear military commands so it is linear, but the combat allows for some strategy so there are some options there

 

 

Progression of Difficulty

     1   2   3   4   5   6  7    8   9   10

     -The game has a really nice progression, if you try to rush and run shooting at the Chimera you may find it challenging, but if you play tactfully you will move along quickly

 

 

Minor Details

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The whole game should be playable co-op

     -After you complete a co-op mission it sends you back to the main menu and you loose your group    

     -The new Auger Scope is a really nice touch

 

 

Sound/Soundtrack

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The soundtrack is average

     -Sound effects are effective

     -Voice acting in pretty good
