Resistance 2 revealed

Resistance 2 revealed

Game Informer confirms top-rated PS3 launch game will become franchise for Sony's rising console.

By Tor Thorsen, GameSpot Posted Jan 11, 2008 3:31 pm PT

As is the case with most batches of platform-launch games, critics weren't especially kind to the titles that debuted alongside the PlayStation 3. According to Metacritic, the most consistently well-reviewed launch title for the platform was Resistance: Fall of Man. Developed by Ratchet & Clank creators Insomniac Games, the title blended science fiction and Harry Turtledove-esque alternate history, portraying an alien invasion of England in the 1950s--after World War II didn't happen.


According to industry-research group NPD Funworld, Resistance was a solid seller, moving nearly 791,000 copies domestically as of November 2007. Little wonder, then, that as rumored, the acclaimed game is getting sequel treatment. The February edition of Game Informer reveals that yes, Insomniac is hard at work on a sequel, tentatively titled Resistance 2.


According to the magazine, Resistance 2 will support two campaigns, multiplayer battles of up to 60 people, and eight-person online co-op play. Unconfirmed reports say the game will support three character classes--including a heavy weapons, special operations, and the all-important medic. It will also incorporate vehicles, including the alien-built Stalker, which will have cloaking abilities.

This is something that I would have expected Sony to reveal either at GDC or at E3 this year. But nonetheless, here it is. And I know I'm not alone in being stoked. I can't wait for more info to trickle out on Resistance 2. Fall can't come soon enough!!

Damn I can't wait for this game! Resistance was amazing, and this should be no less amazing than the original.

We'll also be able to play this game with rumble this time around which is a plus. It should be a good year for sony.

Let's just cross our fingers that by the time Resistance 2 comes out that Home and the trophy system are up and running and in full swing. If they are, Resistance 2 will be that much better.

Definitely give it a purchase. The first game is amazing and is a nice break from achievements. Theres even badges to collect (in game skill points) if your really desperate for "achievements".

I was hoping they would say something about the sequel soon. Can't wait to dive into this and make a guide like i did for the first one.

I'd rent it. It's worth playing through the story once and having a couple of plays online but its not got a whole lot of replay value. It's just another game in an overcrowded genre to me.

Get Unreal Tournament 3 instead. Much better game.

I picked it up for 20 so not too bad at all, I'll let you know my opinions of the game when I'm eventually able to play it.

For 20 it's totally worth it. Full price it's not. It's a decent FPS, but it's worth importing Unreal Tournament 3 for the multiplayer.

Yeah it's in Japanese

Also there's no need to import the disc version. Just buy a Japanese PSN currency card from ebay and buy it through the PSN store. Or find someone else that's done that and get it for free, because Sony DRM allows items to be shared.

Think I'll wait for the English version mate, easiest option lol. That free GT HD game where you just have the one track and do all the time trials is awesome! If GT5 Prologue is anything like that, I can't wait!

I was very disapointed by GTHD. It felt very unfinished to me, almost like it purely was to show off the graphics, because it seemed they forgot about handling. GT5:P on the other hand is stunning, the cars are far more responsive and the graphics are superior to anything I've ever seen.

Also if you make a Japanese account you can download the GT5: Prologue Demo for free. It's one track 4 cars, it gives you a good idea for how much difference there is between GTHD and GT5.

I can't wait for Prologue to hit the UK PSN store, maybe then I'll understand what all the options mean.
