Coint & Plick 2008 #51b: Resistance 2

S1ocki: Pretty good! Seems like an improvement on the original in every way–controls, graphics, weapons, enemies, plus a totally different co-op campaign and sixty person battles online! Shoot dudes in the face! U should buy!

GM: R2’s a pretty generic shooter. I enjoyed playing a sixty-dude team deathmatch the other night, but you have to cope with an almost endless series of sniper headshots immediately upon respawn.

Jeff Levine: In some ways, there’s lots of single player improvements over the first game, but Resistance 2 has lots of annoying and at times horrible gameplay design decisions that really bring the whole experience down. It doesn’t make sense that I can destroy a 100 foot tall alien with a few well placed rockets, but can’t harm an eight foot fish alien just because it’s swimming in the water. I’m also not too fond of the way difficulty is increased by simply throwing way too many enemies against you.
