You may have to wait a few more days for Resistance 3 to release in Europe, but those in the U.S. can get the game today. As reported yesterday, some gamers are waiting to read a Resistance 3 review rather than buy the game then find out how bad or good it is, so we thought a review roundup was in order that shows some of the first reviews online today.
Being Nerdy has posted a full review in this article, which explains how the game feels over the first few hours, and while the weapons are fully upgradeable this also has its advantages and disadvantages. In summary they found that Resistance 3 would be a nice addition to your PS3 library, but also point to this game launching right at the start of an incredible season for game releases. The action and gritty atmosphere in Resistance 3 will help immerse the player in an amazing environment.
In a review by Mash Those Buttons, they point out right away that Resistance 3 puts the player in control of someone else, and not Nathan Hale as before. This time you will become Joseph Capelli, his killer. The reviewer points out that you’ll not be disappointed with this choice of main character, and that you still get the great atmosphere and even an experience that feels more personal. In their Resistance 3 summary the scores are grouped by visuals, sound, control, gameplay, fun, and addiction with an overall score of 4 out of 5. You can read the full review here.
The popular gaming site Inc Gamers has also posted a review of Resistance 3 in the last few hours, which is slightly longer than the other two. They loved the visuals that show an environment exposed to the elements, with a frozen NYC, destroyed buildings and scorched lands. The overall score of 7/10 was due to a disappointing part of the game that was a total let down to the reviewer, which could have seen the game with much higher scores. Read Inc Gamers full review.
