There are plenty of games going up against Resistance 2 for top honors this week (including, of course, Marcus Fenix and Co.), but if the early reviews are any indication, they might have a tough time toppling Nathan Hale's battle against the Chimera, at least from a critical point of view.
- IGN (95/100): "Resistance 2 is one of those games that manages to expand on its predecessor in every way. The single player is epic in scope and in story, which is practically worth the price of admission by itself."
- Gameplayers (90/100):"Resistance 2 is certainly good value for money. If you're online, you'll get a year's worth of gaming out of it no worries at all, while there is enough there to offer single players solid entertainment too. There's nothing particularly elegant or genius about the way the game has been developed: it is just a straight-up action shooter that hangs its hopes on a cool story idea and a wicked arsenal."
- 1UP (B+): "Overall, Resistance 2 is an extremely well-assembled FPS, with an improved campaign, fun competitive multiplayer, and a damn neat take on co-op. I wouldn't go as far as to say this is the definitive PS3 game, but it's certainly one of the best PS3 exclusives I've played.
