Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be warned...Platinum not available. Sadly the R2 servers have been shut down so the Platinum trophy is no longer attainable...due to the handful of online trophies that you need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to Buy for its Cheap Price Resistance 2 is a game that people may not have played a while back because of price. Well now its $3 and is definitely worth the money. It takes place in the United States during an alien infestation. These aliens are called chimera and come in many shapes in sizes and all of them are trying to kill you. You are Nathan Hale who had just come back from Europe fighting the Chimera onslaught and has now joined a team made up of soldiers infected with chimera DNA. You go throughout the States shooting up your foes with a wide array of weapons. It has good gameplay but i decided to play with the controls a little to make a it slightly more current but other wise it did well. The enemies seemed intelligent and hid for cover when being shot at. A majority of the boss fights are epic when you're put up against a giant sea kraken or a spider-like monster that chases you on a small platform and you have to put clip after clip into the beasts. The story is interesting but has been told before and can get old. You move your way through various places in the United States going from point A to point B to stop the chimera threat. Don't get me wrong it's fun but but wave after wave of gun wielding monsters can be old. Another thing that i didn't like was the audio. The cutscenes were cool and sounded great but once they ended you had to listen to soldiers who stood right next to you through a tinny radio sounding voice and it was somewhat irritating and hard to ignore. Though i have said negatives for this game i did really enjoy it. It had me playing roughly 8 hours (I'm only estimating I'm not for sure) and it interested me almost the whole way. I would give the game a 7.5. if you agree with my review then give a thumbs up if not thumbs down. and add me on PSN if you'd like (miguelyorkes222 or ZeGamerBoy)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a solid game. It is debatable that the first could be better than this one. But I think they are pretty much even. This game introduces some new type of enemies that weren't seen in the first installment. Which I will admit, some of these new enemies are quite annoying. This game is based in the United States as the first one was based in London. The graphics where descent, although I expected them to be better than the first. The story line is well scripted out. There are some cool guns that weren't in the first installment as well. Overall this is a pretty good game and would recommend this to anyone. It is worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from War is Now part 2! the second iteration in the series takes off in America where the last game left in the UK where Nathan Hale was fighting through the tower. The Chimera finally made their way to the American coast in California and have slaughtered all that stood in their wake. I loved the immersive story telling portion where you start to see Hale evolve into his own enemy. the flawless detain in the fighting and the enemies were also a plus. however, i did not like the fact that you were allowed two weapons per mission. I missed the weapons wheel where the player could pick and choose his/her weapon of choice. There was once again the feel of desperation in game and i loved it. This series has what it takes to succeed in all means.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-in-all: an improvement over Resistance 1 I thought Resistance 1 was an amazing game with slightly outdated graphics.... they got the point across of a war-torn England but they didn't really "pop". Resistance 2 "POPS". A lot. It keeps the high-replay value, amazing set-pieces, and creative weapons while bringing the graphics into modern-day. Resistance 2 is an alternative history FPS taking place in the 1950's where WWII didn't happen (I think) and Alien Hordes that initially poured out of Russia and the Soviet Union are trying to take over the world. Cool story. The sound effects and music are top-notch. The graphics are AMAZING..... a huge step up from the original Resistance. The fighting is as smooth as any top-notch shooter on the market..... responsive guns and lots of them. The Resistance Series thrives on amazing weapons and HUGE-scale set-pieces where you might have 15 Marines storming 30 fortified Chimera, or 8 Marines holding the line against dozens of Chimera. Resistance 2 keeps up this tradition established in the original.... one slight misstep is the addition of a bunch of bosses requiring specific strategies to defeat (rather than just brute firepower), but that might just be a matter of specific taste. Now on to the weapons! All guns have a "main" and "secondary" fire..... example: The Human Carbine shoots regular bullets for the main and shoots from a grenade launcher with the secondary. Another rifle shoots a "tag" which future bullets home in on.... which allows you to bend bullets around cover and to shoot at enemies while running the opposite direction. Another gun shoots through walls and deploys shields.... there is a sniper rifle that lets you stop time, a rocket launcher that also shoots out a shotgun-like blast of "mini-rockets", a revolver where you can detonate the bullets after they hit a target. There are a LOT of really cool weapons and grenades so I won't spoil them all for you.... For under 5 bucks you'd be silly to not pick up Resistance 2. I didn't play the multiplayer so I cannot comment on it but the base fighting is fun enough that as long as there are still people populating the servers I can't imagine it not being fun. Replay value is great; beating the game unlocks new weapons (though not as many as are unlocked in Resistance 1) and different goodies like graphics filters and cheats and whatnot. The plot is also very cool.... you'll play not just because it's a lot of fun but also because you'll want to find out what's next. An amazing, amazing game.... a must-own for PS3 owners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Resistance 2 Resistance Fall Of Man was a great shooter on PS3 , now with this sequel , Insomniac games just show us the work that they can do with the series , in this game we take control of Nathan Hale , whos more infected by the chimera virus and its just about time to become one of them , so hes last mission its to stop that virus once for all , story mode is good but the game is not so long as the 1st ones but here we have better boss fights against biggest creatures and some new enemies and guns then are just amazing , the game is shorter but we have an arcade mode after beating it and also co op with short missions but with friends gets fun , Multiplayer is now for up to 60 players with modes like capture the flag or team deathmatch ,. is fun but in my personal opinion i feel then they were a lot of people in the servers wich was allright , overrall , the game is good on everything and eliminates the errors from the past game and the series just get better
