Grab your guns & Boogie
What makes a good FPS? Is it the guns? The multi-player? The hype? The interactivity with the land? Whatever you think, this game has it.
Resistance: Fall of Man is arguably the only good game out for the PS3 at the moment. It is the only thing worth getting (asides from a real gun).
You (Nathan Hale), are sent off to fight an unknown enemy known as the Chimaera (not those 3 headed things). As the battle unfolds, you become infected, and faint *gasp*, but you raise, and walk normally. You are now the only survivor to live and breath after being infected.
Now, you must set out with lots of guns to kill all the chimaera.
As you cross the levels (there are more than 30), you will see many different types of chimaera, such as the lowly worker-grunt, the "normal" chimaera, some spider-like thingy that shoots eggs at you, a mutated wolf (I call him Wolfy), and many more. You also get to drive many different types of vehicles, such as a jeep, a tank, an AA Chimaera vehicle, and some more. It is a hard game, and you will die many times because you can't figure out where you're being shot from.
Once you've beaten it, you will see a little cinematic, and then you will be able to wield new weapons, giving you more reason to kick some ass.
In the arsenal, you have a machine gun, a Bullseye (shoots pellets, but it is the anti-personel), a sniper, a rocket launcher, a chimaera mine launcher, a gun that shoots through walls, and many more.
To recapulate this game, you must go to online. The online gameplay, although shaky at it's founding, is now excellent. It has a match-maker style of HALO 2, but you can also play unranked games of your choice. What I mean is, you can select from a list. You can talk to your teamates by pressing the L3 button, or by selecting a channel and just speaking without pressing anything. Another cool thing about online, is the specific medals of accomplishents you gain, such as killing 100 people with a bullseye, playing 100 games and getting first place in 30 of them, 50 stealth kills, beating single player, and about 35 more.
All in all, if you mongered up to get the PS3, Resistance: Fall of Man is a definite buy. So strap on your combat boots, and grab yourself a sniper: we got Chimaera to kill!
