America is lost. Four years after the epic conclusion of Resistance 2, dishonorably discharged Sentinel Joseph Capelli is in hiding from the invading Chimeran menace with a pocket of survivors, including his new wife and young son. But when Dr. Fyodor Malikov arrives with a desperate plan, he sets into motions the events of Resistance 3, the third installment in the popular full-featured first-person shooter series. Resistance 3 is created by critically-acclaimed developer Insomniac Games exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system.

Set in a brutal, alternate 1950s universe, America has been successfully conquered and destroyed by the deadly Chimeran race, forcing the last remaining human survivors to seek refuge in hiding. Players must take on the role of Joseph Capelli, the last surviving Sentinel from a clandestine military program, as he comes out of hiding to journey across a land of ruin in a heroic fight for survival against the merciless Chimera. In addition to an epic single-player campaign, Resistance 3 will offer two-player online or split-screen co-op through the single-player campaign, and a new, focused progression-based multiplayer experience.

It's August 1957, four years after the conclusion of Resistance 2 that left Lieutenant Nathan Hale dead on the battlefield against the invading Chimeran race. Joseph Capelli has been dishonorably discharged from the U.S. Army for killing Hale. With the Chimera completely occupying the planet, Capelli has given up on the seemingly hopeless fight and has retreated into hiding underground with his wife and young son in Haven, Oklahoma. But as the climate of the planet continues to collapse, scientist Dr. Fyodor Malikov finds Capelli with a plan to deliver a devastating blow against the occupying Chimeran force. In order to protect his family, Capelli must leave them behind and embark on a harrowing mission across the country to New York City.

Features:

  • Take the role of mankind’s last hope and journey across a devastated American landscape from Oklahoma to New York City.
  • Engage smarter, more agile and newly-evolved Chimeran enemies – including the powerful Longlegs – and try to survive in an environment where nowhere is safe.
  • Take on the Chimeran hordes with a fully loaded arsenal of weapons including classics like the Bullseye, Auger, Rossmore and Marksman. An intuitive weapon-wheel and new upgrade system provide even more strategic combat choices.
  • Two-player online and local split-screen co-op gameplay means Capelli can take a travel companion to help fight back against the Chimera and accompany him on his journey.
  • Join the global resistance with a new progression-based online multiplayer mode and do battle in key locations set around the world.
  • Immerse yourself in the game with full PlayStation®Move support, or equip yourself with the Sharp Shooter peripheral for a new way to take down the Chimera.
  • Add a new dimension to the battle with amazing Stereoscopic 3D gameplay.

Resistance 3 (Platinum)

It was a gift to my partner and he liked a lot. Best game ever and highly recommended for all gamers. Thanks to Zavvi for giving best price.

Not totally ripe but entertaining nonetheless

In the latest instalment of Resistance for PS3, you journey as a new hero, a common man part of a group that struggles to survive in the Chimera infested world of alternate 50s. The game starts from a small settlement whose relative peace is disturbed when the Chimeras start a huge machine, a Terra Former. A scientist wanders to the settlement and recruits you to stop the machine before a new Ice Age descends upon you. You start your journey towards New York, so that your wife and son may live. Resistance 3 continues on the path that it's prequels set. It gives you new environments, weapons, friends and enemies, along with many already familiar ones. For example, the Auger rifle that has been all previous games too, gives you now the ability to see through walls. A completely new weapon is a powerful cannon that blasts electricity. All weapons have two different fire options and they level up as you use them, becoming more powerful and gaining different perks. Enemies range from familiar basic Chimeras to flying Long Leg Chimeras and wild, zombie-like Feral Chimeras. Environments change rather quickly as you make your way towards New York, and although the levels are pipes with only one entrance and exit, they are wide enough to give an illusion of more open environment. AI of the enemies is rather straight-forward and although enemies like Long Legs quickly change places when you target them, they usually follow a pattern and their next move is rather easy to anticipate. You are not playing as the Chimera infected super-soldier anymore and thus your health is not regenerating. You can heal yourself from cans picked up from dead Chimeras, though. Graphics are OK, most of the environments are different shades of grey and brown, and the weather is usually cloudy. Facial animations are poor and people don't even turn to face you when they talk. Climbing ladders can be confusing and the animation when you do that is really bad, for some reason. You are also very vulnerable when you do so. All in all, Resistance 3 is a game especially for those who liked the previous ones. It's not the kind that will rob your hours of sleep from you but despite of it's lackings, the wide variety of weapons and environments should keep you entertained for it's length of 15-20 hours. Buy it if you liked the previous ones or if you can get it cheap, like from Zavvi.

Okay, if you're looking for a great FPS campaign for your Playstation 3. Look no further than this. It has a great story about pockets of mankind trying to survive on a conquered earth. Making your way to New York, you must battle wave after wave of chimera to save Earth.
