    Default Resistance: Fall of Man a bad game

    I was on a site and it had ps3 games you should buy and games to avoid Resistance: Fall of Man was on the avoid list I think that's crap. So do you guys agree or not about this game


    Sure, Resistance was a flagship title when the PS3 was first released, but given the advances in technology, wider range of FPS titles out there and the gameís release date, we can do much better than Resistance in this day and age. The textures are duller than stale, mouldy bread, while the gunplay severely needs an injection of super morphine. Yeah, I said it. This, without doubt, isnít the PS3-exclusive you should show to your friends.

    Who cares. First off, it's a first person shooter, which both 360 and PS3 get ATLEAST one a month. Second, it was thrown out there as a launch title with Killzone 2 being worked on since launch to get out there.

    If you're tired of one first person shooter. Wait until next month. Having one shitty FPS or one you got bored of doesn't make a difference because new ones are released so often.

    Finally. FPS games suck, go play another genre, unless it's Goldeneye or Perfect Dark, then you're fine. If you're also a die hard FPS fan, why the hell are you playing other FPS games when you could still be playing the Unreal games? What's the matter with you buying crap like Wolfenstein PS360, Halo 3, Killzone 2, etc.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    I thought Resistance was surprisingly entertaining. The gameplay was generic, but the enemies were interesting, and the alternate WWII setting was fun and interesting. It wasn't the best FPS I've EVER played, but it was solid, I enjoyed it, and I blew through the whole game in a weekend. Definitely worth playing, especially at the price it's at now.

    Not worth $60 though, I'd admit that. The second one is even better.

    So some guy on some website thinks it's a bad game?

    From what I've played of it I thought it was ok.

    Resistance was surprisingly good. You have to keep in mind that when it came out, it was really THE ONLY game for PS3 that wasn't a broken mess or inferior port.

    Resistance is a great game for $30. When is was $60, maybe not so much, depends on who you ask? It was a launch title, so what do you expect? Resistance 2 is a better game though in almost every way. I would pick Killzone 2 over them though. Kupomogli is right though, there's a new FPS coming out for PS3 and/or the 360 every month, it's getting so over saturated. Although I guess the FPS genre has been over saturated for a while, now it's just fucking ridiculous! I remember it was like this with fighting games in the 90's, just not as much.

    You mean like Resistance 2?

    I'm not sure that all of us know how dull stale, moldy bread tastes.

    Yeah, show them Motorstorm or Super Stardust if they want to see a state-of-the-art PS3 exclusive.

    At the time you couldn't beat the 60 player online. It had absolutely no lag and was just pure insanity. MAG is now set to break that record and all in all Resistance 2 is much better than 1, but at the time it worked and showed what was possible. It had some really good animations in certain sections like the chimera breeding facility.

    It's a great game. It was the title to have for the PS3 early on.

    The sequel is better. Buy both....have fun.

    I thought it was a pretty lame game. It was an ok game in my opinion, but there are way better FPS's out there, and I believe Resistance is overrated. I would rather play Halo, and I don't think Halo is that great of a game either.

    Both Resistances are pretty lame. They are both average FPS's(and there are plenty of them out there for every system), and if you have played any other average FPS in the past 5 years thats what Resistance offers. It had a good online community but I heard it deminished. Its a bit hyped by fanboys of the PS3 but if it were a multiplat game it would have fallen into obscurity. If you want an average FPS for the PS3 get Killzone 2, as the multiplayer community is more active. You are probably better putting your money to Call of Duty 6 or "M.A.G".

    People are going to have thier opinions of the game. I have to be honest that I was mildly dissapointed with the game when I first played it. The title did grow on me. Over time, I would recommend the title for any PS3 owner who wants a decent console exclusive who enjoys First Person Shooters. It is not a Halo Killer, by far. It is however, above average with enough unique things in it to be still deemed an excellent value at sub $20. You can do much worse.

    Resistance: Loss of Consciousness is more like it. I didn't play it at launch, so that may be it, but I found it dull as hell. The sequel was better but not much. I guess they're worth playing through cheap now though.

    I'm interested in playing the game, but I hope is picking up a copy for like $10.

    Yes, I'm cheap.

    Add me to the stack of didn't like it. I've never been too in love with console FPSes (being bred on PC Doom, Quake and UT will do that) but I didn't find anything special here and it didn't engage me. The concept of World War II... with Aliens! didn't flare any neurons, if you will.

    I agree Resistance wasn't all it was supposed to be, but it's far from avoid list worthy.

    What about Xbox 360s debut "flagship" FPS?
