Resistance 3 dilemma: Release vs. review wait

 

By Posted 6 Sep 2011, 02:10

We have been scouring the web for a decent Resistance 3 review, however it looks like all of the best game critics have been told to wait until the game’s release date before they publish theirs – the question is will you head over to your local game store to pick up a copy of Resistance 3 tomorrow before seeing professional reviews?

For roughly a month lots of gamers have been taking advantage of the games beta, this finished yesterday and on the whole we heard great things about it – today we wonder whether gamers have seen enough to commit to spending $59.99 on the game, or whether they will wait for critic and consumer reviews and then decide.

The game’s developer, Insomniac Games, has a great reputation and reviews for both Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 were great, in fact if you check out MetaCritic you will see that the games have MetaScores of 86 and 87 out of 100 respectively – surely Resistance 3 is destined for success. Not only has Insomniac Games seen great success when it comes to the Resistance series but these guys are also responsible for Spyro the Dragon and Ratchet and Clank, therefore it would be fair to say they know how to impress PlayStation gamers.

As previously mentioned we don’t have any reviews of the full game to talk about, however this CVG article it has been described as refreshing, not only this but sources suggest that this is the best Resistance yet and a perfect ending to the trilogy.

If you head over to PlayStation World or Citrus Mojo you can see detailed reviews of the game’s beta, it is clear that the beta was far-from perfect and lag seemed to be a major factor, that said once you rank up and get into a lag-free game you will enjoy it – but is the lag going to be worse once the game is released in North America on September 6th? Let’s hope the devs have gained valuable insight from the beta test and fixed plenty of known issues.

Will you buy Resistance 3 on its release date or are you going to wait to see some reputable critic reviews?

    After Resistance 2 I’m definitely going to wait for a review before picking up Resistance 3

    Hell yes I’m buying it in 2 hours.  The beta, although rough at first, showed why Insomniac is as popular as it is.  Quality and imagination.
