So I finally unwrapped my 9 month old copy of Resistance 2, and started playing it for the first time this weekend. I have to tell you, after playing other great games like Killzone 2 and Gears of War 2, this game just does not cut it. I'm almost completely done with the single player campaign and I have not been impressed at all so far. The graphics are sub-par, the story is completely contrived, and the action is very cookie cutter.
You need to understand that I loved the first Resistance: Fall of Man, so I had my hopes high for this sequel. So far those hopes have only been crushed. Now I haven't played the multiplayer yet, and I've heard good things about it, but the single player campaign is just crap. This makes the 2nd game in a row that I have been disappointed with. First there was MadWorld last week, and now Resistance 2 this week. What the hell is going on here?
Besides these crappy games, I have some pretty stressful stuff going on in my personal life right now. All in all, I have to say the last week was pretty shitty for me. I'm hoping things make a turn for the better soon, but right now I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyways, I'm not going to bore you with the details of my personal life, and there are much more important things to talk about, like the Cblog recaps.
