Resistance 3

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Resistance 3 with a hint of deja vu.

Watch Video

Damn. Had my hopes up that a game was finally pushing ahead with nice game mechanics, only to learn that it's basically ripping off HL2. Hopefully it's just a massive coincidence and we'll once more see an FPS that doesn't require you to suck your thumb in a corner.

Until then, I'll cling to my Heretic and Hexen and gaze longingly at next-gen graphics.

Clearly, beards are the greatest thing for a male character to have!.

Played the demo at eurogamer and I too was left confused for a while. In the short-time in which I played, it didn't seem very good and the enemies were just spawned-in like cannon fodder

Fucking typical. A shooter with all of the mechanics i liked that were lost are back but only because Half Life got raped in the shower and woke up in a bathtub full of ice missing all of it's internal organs. I still might buy it though. Beggars can't be choosers when something passably different pops up and wiggles it's juicy buns in my face.

Whelp, that was... interesting. Certainly a unique review, and funny to boot.

Entertaining as always. Still won't buy this game though.

Holy crap... was that a positive review? It almost seemed like Yahtzee didn't know what to do with himself, kinda like a Nazi on a desert island who has run out of different races and religeons to blame all of the Islands problems on.

Wait a second! Yahtzee... Nazi... they both end with a ZEE! Where did YOU hide the body Mr. Crowshaw!?!?!?

I love the fact Insomniac carry over their general gun craziness from Ratchet & Clank into other things, as they are simply brilliant at thinking up really imaginative weapons, and somehow are still making them, even with so many made already.
I also will make the obligatory sad, pathetic nit-pick that Insomniac have always done the whole thing of people not having job titles, at least for a long while anyway, making them the only large development studio other than Valve to do so (that I know of).

Fucking Chrome crashed twice trying to get through the commercials.
Edit: Sorry about^
Okay as for the actual review...

Sounds like Isnomiac has a bit of a...
*puts on sunglasses*
Pipe Dream

To be fair, most of the things Yahtzee complains about Insomniac ripping out Valve are things that were in the first Resistance (health packs, weapon wheel, alien hive infecting humans, etc). Which many people complained because Resistance 2 forgot in order to be more Modern-Warfare-like.

Also, the whole anagram thing with Combines and Insomniac is a little far-fetched...

Wait a minute! THE SCIENTIST HAS A BEARD!

I laughed so hard when Yahtzee's conspiracy theories started. And some of you guys above me, wow, you are judging the game based off of a Zero Punctuation review. I really don't think Yahtzee was being as serious as you give hi credit for.

Hilarious review, funniest one since New Vegas. IMO.

Wonder if next week will be Gears Of War 3...

Better then Sherlock Holmes? I think so. Anyway I stayed up for this and I don't trust my tired self enough to type to much.

EDIT: Nobody posted fast enough to get banned or saying "first"? What is this?!

He ate the body and vomitted the remains over the sequel, in which you walk around a laboratory complex in an orange hazard suit trying to analyse a mysterious sample in an elaborate doomsday machine. Oh wait.

Don't be silly, Yahtzee, Insomniac isn't COMPLETELY ripping off Valve. They can count to three, for one.

Godwin's Law ALREADY? That seriously has to be some kind of record. Really, it does.

Anyway- I hadn't even noticed all the similarities between HL2 and Resistance 3. What're the chances that it's coincidence? (Probably not likely, but still.)

Huh... i wasn't too interested before, but now i might actually give this a fair chance someday.

I've never played any of the Half-Life games anyways so it can rip them off as much as they want for all i care. I won't feel like i've played it before anyways :D

I just sooo can't wait for your review of Serious Sam 3.

But they did released their #3

Well, it's clear now that Insomniac should have been making DNF, because they are clearly the last company able too make a classic shooter.

Really funny review, old mate.

Hehe, the ending actually got a loud chuckle out of me (dont usually actually laugh out LOUD at stuff like this even though I enjoy it). I may actually have to check Resistance out if I ever get a PS3. Would probably be the only shooter I buy for the system.

Funniest ZP in a while.

In fact, it was fucking hilarious!

"What did you do with the body!!!" LOL very nice. I agree with you on alot of it.

Bwahahaha! I found this review to be one of the best in awhile. Especially the last bit.

It's almost enough for me to forgive the crack at my appearance during the stinger. Come on Yahztee, we can't all be Anglo-Australian Stallions.

Absolutley amazing review. Laughed so much at the end!

I gotta admit, this was one of the best written ones - After the "backhanded compliment" section, I felt like there was something else coming. I kept waiting for... something. I wasn't sure what I was waiting for, until the Ravenholme section. Then it all became clear. This is definitely my favorite review in quite a while.

I think they're just carrying over shit from their other games. But what do I know.

Getting it.

That was a frigging hilarious episode.

Very true, but if you look at the previous comments you can tell that most of the people don't know this and are taking YZ seriously.
And I wonder why I never ever look at the comments under his videos. There are so many sheep here that I could eat lamb chops every meal of every single day for the rest of my life.

Wow, a very funny review. While Yahtzee can't find any too much wrong with the game he still make the video work by pointing out all the increasing small similarities with half life 2.

Pity he didn't make any reference to insomniac's ratchet and clank along the lines of "This seris only existed so that the programmers could get gore effects on thier CV" (note this is not a complaint on the resistance seris)

Well if it is going to be a "positive" review at least it is this silly.
I really got a kick out of this one and the last second "AH HA!" before the credits was really the icing on the cake... or the light smear of branston pickle on the toast.

It's been a while since I've actually laughed out loud to ZP. Good job. ^.^

Wow... completely unexpected. May have to slide this into a spot in my gamefly queue... maybe in the spot I had Battlefield 3. I'm looking for a FPS with a 90's style of weapons and health that isn't a monster spam fest like Serious Sam or Painkiller. Not that there's anything wrong with those games of course. I mean I love eating pizza but I can't expect to enjoy the same thing day after day..

No...that would be a mustache. Just look at Mike Haggar. (Mind you, I AM biased...look at my avatar.)
