Resistance 3

America is lost. Four years after the epic conclusion of Resistance 2, dishonorably discharged Sentinel Joseph Capelli is in hiding from the invading Chimeran menace with a pocket of survivors, including his new wife and young son. But when Dr. Fyodor Malikov arrives with a desperate plan, he sets into motions the events of Resistance 3, the third installment in the popular full-featured first-person shooter series. Resistance 3 is created by critically-acclaimed developer Insomniac Games exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system.

Set in a brutal, alternate 1950s universe, America has been successfully conquered and destroyed by the deadly Chimeran race, forcing the last remaining human survivors to seek refuge in hiding. Players must take on the role of Joseph Capelli, the last surviving Sentinel from a clandestine military program, as he comes out of hiding to journey across a land of ruin in a heroic fight for survival against the merciless Chimera. In addition to an epic single-player campaign, Resistance 3 offers two-player online or split-screen co-op through the single-player campaign, and a new, focused progression-based multiplayer experience.

Ratings for Resistance 3

Rating Description
Presentation The visual style is consistent from its menus, right through to the actual game. Layouts of Abilities and matchmaking options are clear and concise.
Graphics While the game isn't quite the technical marvel that Killzone 3 is, it's still as pretty as this kind of bleak and grimy experience can be.
Sound Stunning sound effects and music help create one hell of an unnerving atmosphere. Voice acting is also top-notch.
Gameplay Resistance 3 feels and controls wonderfully. The campaign is always exciting and the game's weapons are more awesome than ever.
Lasting Appeal A decent-sized campaign is complemented by a fun co-operative mode, and excellent multiplayer. Unlocks in multiplayer will keep players coming back for more.
