In the highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Sony PlayStation 3 game, Resistance 2 is an alternate-history, first-person shooter that puts you in the heroic role of Sgt. Nathan Hale as he struggles against overwhelming odds to defend humankind from an insurmountable Chimera.Resistance 2 takes up right where Resistance: Fall of Man left off. Hale is kidnapped by a black ops group in London and forced to Iceland for research testing. The full scope of what happens in Iceland is a mystery, but the game reveals that as Hale wrestles with the insidious Chimera war machine, he must also battle the virus raging inside his body that threatens to transform him into the very creature he fights against.
The Return of the Chimera
The Chimera are the main enemies of the Resistance franchise. For those new to the story, it is believed that the Chimera are of extraterrestrial origin. Yet, it is known that their army expands by infecting humans with a virus that transforms humans into Chimera while inside a cocoon. These creatures are much stronger than humans, and they usually have multiple yellow eyes. They have remarkable healing abilities and thrive in very cold temperatures, which has led them to alter the Earth's climate to a much lower temperature that better suits their habitat requirements.
Resistance 2 introduces several new Chimeran enemies with a host of new powers. A few new characters include the Chameleon, a creature that can cloak itself completely and kill a player in one, destructive blow, and the Grim, which are a terrifying species that attack in hordes.
The Battle Moves to the United States
After the brief opening scenes in London and then Iceland, game play jumps ahead two years and across the globe to San Francisco. Giant, mile-long motherships slowly cruise through the skies, demolishing the city with fiery beams. The city is burned and mangled, and it appears that there will be little to no survivors. As the battle continues across the United States, you're sure to encounter many new, deranged, and much more powerful enemies.
In Chicago, you'll be joined by a squad of soldiers, all carrying different weapons. To survive and move through the level, you'll need to work together, moving from cover to cover, setting up your squad in a smart and defensive manner. These are just a few examples of the challenging levels you'll encounter as you battle your way across the country to save humankind. And if you're hoping for new weapons, Resistance 2 won't leave you disappointed. The US-based campaign is loaded with tons of new weapons to enhance the overall game play and first-person shooter experience.

Resistance 2 is one of my favorite PS3 exclusives, great gameplay, great story and a very good looking game. This game ticks all the boxes necessary to make a good game, and it simply is. I thoroughly enjoyed it when it released, and I have enjoyed it again completely, since repurchasing the game.
There is no need to go into detail about the game except to say that I love it and its well worth your time. There are many other reviews out there since this game has been out for quite some time now, and maybe this will be seen or maybe not, who knows, but I urge anyone that does read this to give this game, Resistance : Fall of Man and Resistance 3 a play through, as I think any gamer will enjoy this game and this series
If you have never owned a PS3, you should pick one up before they are hard to find as they are out of production, because there are tons of great games to be had on the system. If you are thinking of getting a PS3 or this game, just do it, you wont regret it..
Solid 5 out of 5
(Please do not be confused,Resistance 2(Part 2) and Resistance 2 :Fall of Man(Part 1) and not same game but a part 1 and 2)
At The End of Resitance 2:Fall of man...Hale gets taken into custody and credits roll(don't want to spoil anything to much so that is all i will say regarding storyline)
So liking the game so much i bought Resistance 2(the continuing story) next day after beating the 1st part-I beat Second Game in about 2 days(I dont play everyday but this game i had to).
This 2 part game captures the imagination so much you get swept away kicking Alien Asses.Graphics are Fantastic.
Ok,her it is in small detail..
Graphics are Fantastic
Details are amazing in every way (Buildings,Weapons,Foreground etc...)
Controls are Amazingly easy to master. and so much more.
The price is Fantastic
Now for the Cons:
Only 1....Game was to short in the part 2..I beat it in 2 days.wish a part 3(to the same story) were out.
There is a resistance 3 but it is NOT Hale and it isnt as good i dont think.(Completely different story.)
so if you want a shooter that has great detail,fantastic storyline and complete fun.Grab Resistance 2....(for the complete enjoyment,ya haveta grab Resistance 2 Fall of Man as well.for it is a part 1 and 2 storyline game.
I Guarantee you wont regret the purchase.
I don't know why anybody would say Resistance 2 was inferior to the first. Wait, I do know why. I've seen this type of gamer before. They are never pleased with any game no matter what. They are always disappointed by a sequel because it isn't 100% like the original. If you love the original so much, then play the original! These type of people think they could make a game way better than a people who are professionals and have put countless hours into to making a game. Put down a list of the best video games today and sure enough Captain I-Hate-Everything will say everything sucks because it isn't exactly like his favorite game from like 5 years ago.
I was tempted not to buy this game because of the criticism by these types. I'm so glad I checked the game out myself. Sometimes you just need to ignore what people say about a game. You might miss out on something good if you don't. If you want an action packed campaign and realistic game play, than I recommend getting Resistance 2!
