    This looks bigger and better. Looking forward to reading the reviews first though me thinks.

    It does get better. Much better than Unreal 2, i remember the hype for unreal 2, laughable, i had no high hopes when first played this (and 1 1/2 years ago this was all there was to play lol) and was quite surprised, it does get better by the way.

    can someone just explain why, after getting into a big tank and stomping about in it for a bit, you'd abandon it on a level boundary? isn't a tank somethign you'd generally keep?

    If i can remember rightly the first time you get to use a stalker is just before you get to the chimeran tunnels at bristol, and that's why you cant use it anymore because your going into tunnels. Other than that the stalkers not made for cobbled streets??

    I am with hex on this one. However good it looks it will have to be a lot better than the first one. It was just so bloody average.

    i quite liked the atomosphere. shocking i know.

    Granted its a mediocore fps, but its a console fps. I found it much more enjoyable than halo.

    Resistance was pretty average, never really made me want to replay it, but i did like the some of the weapons. I'll have to give the online mode a go soon.

    As far as the new game goes, I don't have much hope for the 1 player game, but the online idea of breaking 60 players up into smaller squads with different objectives that change as the battle progresses sounds interesting.

    Re: First look:: Resistance 2 - PS3

    I found Resistance to be really lacklustre, and I thought the same of Halo 3 too, it's hard to get a console FPS just right.

    That said, I do believe that console FPS games do work, the best examples so far, in my opinion, are Gears of War, Call of Duty 4 and Ghost Recon.
