Ign:
9.0 Presentation
Insomniac has created a compelling mythos and the unique blend of World War II-level battles with alien technology is a great mix. Expect load times only at the beginning of stages.
8.5 Graphics
A mix of 20th century war machines and intergalactic alien hordes makes for quite the interesting art style. A solid 30fps framerate and plenty of bells and whistles easily impress.
8.5 Sound
When connected to a capable speaker, Resistance will blow your speakers to kingdom come with great audio effects and stellar voice acting. Don't expect to hear much musically, though.
9.0 Gameplay
Experience the best weapons to come along in a shooter for quite some time united with challenging enemies, tight control, smooth online play, and insane boss battles. Seriously fun.
9.5 Lasting Appeal
Between 12-15 hours of single-player action, multiple (and very challenging) difficulty levels, four hidden weapons, unlockable secrets and skill points, and a ton of multiplayer options. Hot!
9.1
Outstanding OVERALL
(out of 10 / not an average)

PS3 really needed this. One must have for PS3 so far. If only MotorStorm was coming out as well.

Hopefully Ridge Racer doesn't disappoint.

Well I'm glad this one came through, because it's the only title my roommate is picking up when he gets his.

gameplay wise its probably going to be good, but go i want to shoot the entire marketing team at sony, including Ken, Kaz and that british prick too, 7 cores, oh and 3 times more powerfull why cant businesses just be honest with there products, just say what your product achieves in graphics and dont give us cg bull****. Iam worried that the ps3 graphics might be limited to around this much going by the texture work, and lack of memory, hell this doesnt even look better than quake 4, or HL 2, but what ever, when i get a chance to play it than ill decide what to pick up. by the way i own all the last gen consoles, but god of war 2 is still for ps2 so i can afford to wait a little longer before i get it, and hopefully a slight price drop by that time. here are some photos for you to judge, and i know iam being a graphics ***** but when your being shown one of the 8 wonders of the world, its kinda hard not to nit pick.

Well the reviews state that the graphics are not this titles strong point. The gameplay and multiplayer aspects are. I personally can't shake the fact that this game reminds me of Call Of Duty but with aliens. Since I haven't actually played Resistance I'll reserve judgement.

LOL you are comparing a launch title to these pc titles.
And with 40 played multi and huge maps it still looks better than alot of those.
How about you put up some PDzero or some Quake 4 from the 360 launch?

I've played both resistance and HL2, HL2 looks a lot better hands down... so stfu.

Wasnt aware we were comparing it to pc games, I guess that is the best you can come up with?
It is a launch game, and if you have to reach that far to try and find something negative then you really need to just sod off and give it up.

wtf are you talking about? those are HL2 screenshots up there, and that's why I said it looks better than resistance. Who's reaching where?

I think it's perfectly okay to compare Resistance to whatever... hell compare Resistance to GOW, why the hell should it matter? He was just pointing out that Resistance is not up to par with other next-gen games in terms of graphics

Hex

Because the person that posted them posted them to compare to resistance.
If the half life 2 pics were from the 360 then it would be a valid comparison, they are not so it is not.
I do not think anyone in their right mind believes that consoles will ever be better than pcs for fps gaming, just look at Quake Wars.
This is not a post about that though, this is a post about Resistance which is a launch title for a console.
So comparisons should be kept valid.

Rofl.
And I am saying show me a "next gen" launch title that looked better.

Thats HL2: Lost Coast, NOT HL2 default graphics... Lost Coast barely runs on the majority of rigs that played HL2 originally upon its release.

Let us not forget that HL2 also has poor hitboxes and a choppy animation system when compared to what we have seen of Resistance.

You know how badly you contradict yourself. Couple posts ago you said:

How is comparing a 360 launch title to a PS3 launch title fair? It's been a freaking year.

I just think that the fact of the matter is that Resistance is being released in late 2006 and to be considered up-to-par (in graphics) with current games, it should be comparable to current games.

And I edited out the Crysis in my last post since that's coming out in a couple months :)

The hardware is close to the same, the devs had about the same time with the hardware to work with.
What is the drama?
Do you not remember all of those posts about devs not getting the final specs or dev kits until late?

Kind of off topic, but IMHO Crysis took a huge hit in the latest pics that came out.
I think Gears of War for console and Quake Wars will be the benchmarks to compare too for a while to come.

I know where you are coming from, I honestly do.
BUT limit this to console games.
Then look at 40 player MP with a framerate that never flinches, dead solid.
Then take into account the sheer size of the maps ( I dont know if you have watched any of the vids or not).
Then take in the physics and the fact that they WANTED the gritty look.
Then remember that this is a first gen launch title.

Most of the final kit delays were due to bluray diodes, the RSX and cell chips were ready for a long time. There's no way I will ever believe that the devs had the same time to develop for 360 and for PS3; PS3 devs had more time for sure.

How is it fair to compair PDZ and Quake 4 for the 360 to Resistance? PDZ and Quake 4 came out a year ago and Resistance just came out. Compare something more recent like Gears of War or Call Of Duty 3. If you do that Resistance doesn't hold up graphics wise.

This is probably a cheesy nitpick to some but it bothers me when FPS games dont have the head bob movement when walking, I noticed Resistance lacks this when watching IGN's video review ..the player just glides along the levels (like playing wolfenstein). other than this Resistance looks "OK" but it doesnt even remotely compare to Gears of Wars graphic beauty. Honestly GOW has the best graphics ive witnessed on anything period and it just happens to be a very fun game.
