Resistance 3

Release Date: September 6, 2011
Platform: PS3

Set four years after the event of the previous game, Resistance 3 puts players back into the combat boots of Joseph Capelli as he treks across a Chimera-infested landscape in the hopes of dealing one final blow to the invading forces. The game features a new weapon upgrade system, online and offline cooperative modes and is also compatible with the PlayStation Move.

The level Sony allowed us to play was a small fenced-off yard with a couple of buildings, one of them multi-level, and a bunch of obstacles with cover such as abandoned cars. It was basically an arena fight with Chimera pouring in from all ends and the player having to defend his position and squad. Air transports dropped Chimera off on rooftops, and also climbed in over fences. They weren't overly tough, but they were relentless.

I could use two different weapons in the demo, an assault rifle type and a powerful magnum type, in addition to grenades and melee. Taking down Chimera made them explode with blood, especially after nailing a headshot with the magnum. Meleeing up close isn't recommended, as the Chimera are pretty damn ugly, but it works. The level felt a lot like what we've seen from Resistance in the past, with constant streams of enemies and you wondering how much longer you'll have to survive against them.
