Resistance of Man

Resistance of Man is the latest next-generation blockbuster for the PlayStation 3 that is set on an alternate Earth from ours where World War II never happened, however in exchange, mankind has been invaded by aliens extremely reminiscent of War of the Worlds.

With the fate of mankind in danger, a loan soldier called Nathan Hale, the last survivor of the American reinforcements once again takes up arms in order to liberate humanity from this otherworldly threat and this, my friend, is where the gamer is thrown into the heart of Resistance of Man.

Features:

  • Resistance: Fall of Man draws players into a deep, frightening story that rewrites the 20th century and pits the United States and Britain against a horrific species of unknown origin.
     

  • In addition to an epic single player campaign, Resistance: Fall of Man features co-op, split screen multiplayer and highly customizable online gameplay.
     

  • PlayStation 3ís superior power enables Resistance: Fall of Man to feature a wide variety of fluidly moving characters that exhibit more sophisticated behaviors and interact with their environments more realistically.
     

  • Greater processing power on PlayStation 3 and Blu-ray technology enables more immersive visual and sound effects in Resistance: Fall of Man, heightening the chaos of large-scale warfare.
     

  • A powerful rendering engine allows Resistance: Fall of Man to feature a greater variety of highly detailed and interactive environments for a console FPS experience, including large battlefields and sprawling military command centers.
     

  • Insomniac Games has combined its passion for creating exotic weapons and vehicles with a proprietary physics system to create a unique human and alien arsenal.

  • The game has similar parallels to Gears of War on the XBox 360, however this title is squarely placed on Earth as you run through war torn streets, dodging the background action as you engage the Chimera. Needless to say, the action starts early in the game and really heats up as you progress through the various levels of the title.  

    Graphically, Resistance of Man is quite spectacular on the PS3 and is definitely one of the better launch titles on the console with its lighting and shadow effects and highly detailed background environments. All the characters in the game has been professionally designed which feature an extraordinary amount of polygons and realistic high quality textures to truly immerse you into the action.

    As you progress through the game, the developers have carefully limited the amount of alien technology early on in the game which increases as the you move through the various missions.

    The complexity of what is happening throughout the game is amazing with sometimes battles raging all over the gaming environment, whether itís giant spider like alien tanks walking through London or the Chimera ground troops enforcing their power through the streets, it all adds to the atmosphere.

    Insomniac have ensured that even the most novice of gamers will be able to pick this game up from the moment they put a controller in their hands and start playing and the control mapping works quite well. There are also a variety of different weaponry available to playable that are littered throughout the gaming environment and match that with some interesting artificial intelligence who duck, side-step and will even run at out if you are having difficulties will definitely give the more experienced gamers a run for their money.

    Apart from engaging the enemy on foot, thereís even a section where you drive a jeep around the gaming environment which really helps spice up the gameplay. As you make progress, Resistance uses a check pointing system to save your position and even supports an entertaining split-screen mode for gamers wishing to bring their friends into the fray and when the single-player's out of the way, you're ready for the 40-player online battles. 

    In conclusion, Resistance of Man may not be the most original game on the market at the moment but itís definitely one of the better first person shooter games available on the PS3 and even though it heavily borrows from past games, itís refreshing to play a game of this caliber on the PlayStation 3 with its highly realistic graphics and addictive yet standard gameplay. Definitely worth checking out!
