Resistance....its fun to kill your parents online....

C'mon people! What are you men or mice! This is a great game and really fun. My son loved it so much that we played it twice. We love killing each other and playing side by side.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (13 ):

Thanks to the PS3's technical horsepower, the aliens are realistically creepy and the atmospheric indoor and outdoor environments help add to the suspension of disbelief. The game's multi-channel surround sound is extraordinary: You can hear quiet footsteps on a creaking wood floor above your head that will send shivers down your spine. The enemy artificial intelligence (A.I.) is smart and aggressive, but players can also log online to play against human opponents. In fact, you can engage in matches on huge maps supporting up to 40 players.

While not quite as good as Microsoft Game Studios' gritty Gears of War for the Xbox 360, Resistance: Fall of Man is a worthy shooter for the PS3. Players will also enjoy the first official game "update" with added multiplayer features, some improved graphics, and other extras.
