It is pre-owned but seems a good price - is the game any good before I buy it?

In Resistance: Fall of Man, the U.S. and Britain band together in a last-ditch effort to save Europe and Asia from a horrific scourge. In mere decades, the Chimera, a species of unknown origin propagating a virus that converts other life forms into more Chimera, has overrun Russia and all of Europe. Humanitys hope for survival is slim, and the tide of the battle rests on the shoulders of U.S. Army Ranger, Sgt. Nathan Hale.

well worth this price

not worth this price

it could be worth this price

hehe

Worth it for me - I've had the second one since December but have refused to play it as I haven't played the first one yet. At £3.99 and a metascore of 8.3 I'd say it's worth a go.

Played it through to completion. Compared to more recent releases may seem a bit dated, but gameplay is good, if somewhat linear and at that price and the action is fairly constant.

good price, enjoy.

great game !!!!! buy it play it then play resistance 2 u will enjoy them both

I didn't enjoy it at all, but I think I may be in the minority

I bought it at this price a few months ago really couldn't get into it

I didn't really enjoy it either. Had it for years and tried many times to get into it but it just doesn't do it for me.

It was pretty bad at the beginning, but it was the only PS3 game I had at the time so I persevered. When you get past the first level, it starts getting really good, and by the docks level you're hooked!

I agree, the first level is so uninspired it makes you wonder why it garnished such great reviews, it hardly sucks you into the game, but then once the storyline starts to unfold it is a greatly polished game and one of the best FPS for the PS3, just a pity the start doesn't grip or excite.

Bought 1 & 2 myself and now finished both - personally wouldn't bother with the first - other than the odd funky weapon the gameplay is very dated, it runs on rails all the time, there are areas that just copy and paste the backgrounds from other levels so it can get quite repetitive and the same enemy monsters pop up level after level, I found it quite boring towards the second half of the game - and I had heard there was a great twist at the end so I stuck with it and once I finished it, didn't think the twist was worth the wasted time to be honest.

Resistance 2 is better graphically, has a lot of the same weapons with a few new twists, has more "epic" moments and does look more polished overall, would recommend spending a couple of quid more, saving yourself some time and just go play 2 if you want to play either...

I didn't make it past that first level. Perhaps I should have shown more perseverance myself.....

yeah i struggled with level one, and if i struggle with that, i dont bother with a game.

the game is ok but the 2nd one is better and only about £8 2nd hand itself. plus the first game has no trophies, so why bother lol.

This game is much harder and better than the second game, i have both and the second one is to easy, this one has a great 2 player, they took time making this game and it shows.

You have to keep your head down in the first couple of levels of this game then "surprise" it becomes more easy. Graphically I would say its very run of the mill and nothing special unlike the 2nd.

Having said that at this price its a bargain.

Much preferred this game to the 2nd one. It also has two player co-op split screen which is a rareity.

Excellent game. I bought it when Game were doing it for either £4 or £5 a few months back

I really enjoyed the game and it is a xmas ritual for me to play through it. This xmas I will be going for superhuman.

Don't forget that the DLC is now free and people still play the MP although the numbers are quite low.

Also there is a patch for vibration but you need to start the MP part of the game to download it.

This game was awesome, obviously now after like 3 and a half years people don't play it and the graphics look outdated but I got this game with my PS3 just a month or two after launch online was brilliant. It had dedicated servers and all! The campaign was also enjoyable, I never did finish it on superhuman tho.

I really enjoyed this game, and think its well worth a look for people who can't get enough FPS games. You might need to take some rough with the smooth, but overall its a good experience. The weapons are fantastically varied. Personally I thought Resistance was a lot better than Killzone 2, which I found quite dull.

I haven't played Resistance 2 yet, its been sitting in my cupboard for a little while, but I've heard mixed opinions on whether the original or sequel is the better game. Probably leaning towards the second slightly.
