I honestly felt this way and I know others do to (from reading what they wrote)

I love Ps3, I love R1 FOM, but I sincerely feel that FOM looked better than R2.

Also, whats weird is that Insomniac's other game, R&C TOS appeared to be more graphically impressive than ACIT, (however ACIT is a far superior game, gameplay and fun-factor wise). However, In TOS, you had an awesome feeling zipping through Metropolis with all those vehicles and stuff goin on in the background, it was technically and artisticaly impressive.

I know i know, graphics dont mean anything when compared to gameplay, but still....

I don't think there is any way that FOM has better graphics than Res 2, but Res 2 can't compete with the atmosphere FOM brings. Res 2 wanted to bring a 1950s postcard look, with the colorfulness of everything. I think Insomniac succeeded with that, but it didn't feel appropriate for an alien invasion. FOM just looks better with the washed out colors and the depressing look for an alien invasion.

R2 may be better graphically, but R:FOM had an overall better feel than R2. R:FOM had character. Something I think that R2 kinda lacked.

I think that Resistance is the better game, but I don't know if there is even room for discussion over which one is better looking. Unless you have a real passion for desaturation Resistance 2 looks considerably better.

Tools of Destruction, and sorry but its a pet peeve when people dont use the correct there their and they're..... in this case they're. But its sometimes common for sequel games to look worse. Look at call of duty lol, Black ops looks like a really good PS2 game compared to MW2. Although console graphics aren't really that great, except for a select few.

I did find Resistance 2 disapointing on it's story, but multiplayer was good. But I do prefer Resistance Fall of Man which was almost perfect for a FPS game for the PS3.

Resistance FOM did look loads better than Resistance 2. R1 was alot sharper with clean textures, R2 took the GTA San Andres approach and went for Quantity over quality.

The only flaw reviewer had with R1 was that is was a standard shooter, other than a unique story line. Nothing set it apart from other shooters. I got bored playing Resistance 2 and never even finished it. Compared to Resistance 1 which I played through LOADS! R1 in my opinion was far better in almost every factor than Resistance 2

I loved the story and the side narration on Fall Of Man, Its a shame it lost its touch, R2 felt cheap and Last Gen.

Ya, a cheap feeling, I second that. Not as much thought put into the game, atmosphere, narration (or lack of), mediocore level design, overall lack of fun in R2

the only thing thats better than in R1 than R2, was the weapon wheel in R1 they took that off which i dont know why. and also single player was co-op in the 2nd there isnt any co-op in single player. other than that R2 was better in almost every other way. i bet if these 2 options were available from start in R2 ppl wouldnt be complaining about it that much

R1 had more depth, R2 had better graphics and visuals. R3 will be the better game. To me, the Resistance series never captured its true essence. It never really defined itself. R1 focused on Nathan Hale, R2 was more about the alien takeover. Gunplay mechanics still feel cheap and unsatisfying. I felt like I was using Ratchet and Clank guns in Resistance. They really need to work on that and give it a more satisfying gunplay feel. I want to see more enemy types, more interesting and stronger characters, and a sense of "struggle." Resistance series is one of those games that have a lot of potential but clearly falls short and it's overrated as heck. I have a lot of hope for Resistance 3 though.
