Although the Playstation 3 has plenty of stunning-looking games coming up for it, the one that most piqued people’s interest as a launch title is arguably Resistance: Fall of Man by Insomniac Games, creators of the Ratchet and Clank series of games.
There have been plenty of stellar first-person shooters to hit shelves in the past few years, and Resistance definitely tips its cap to them, as it’s strongly influenced by games like Half-Life 2 and the Halo series. In it, you take on the role of one Sergeant Hale, a hearty American soldier sent to England to help fight the forces of the Chimera, a technologically advanced species that is attempting to assimilate the human race. Through a twist of genetic fate, Hale is able to resist their borgification attempts and use their own genetic powers against them.
What’s more, though, is that you’re able to use the Chimeran weapons, as well, and that’s where the game really sets itself apart. The weapon design in Resistance is incredibly unique, with a blend of real-world machineguns and shotguns and alien technology, such as rifles that can fire around walls and guns that can fire through walls. It’s a crazy trip, but hey - that’s why you’re reading GameSpot’s Game Guide, right? Inside, we’ve got a complete walkthrough, details on the weapons you find, and much more.
