Resistance: Fall of Man

Made in 2006 this is a pretty old game that holds up rather well, but still shows its age. It’s a pre-Modern Warfare first person shooter, so it lacks the “auto lock” style zoom feature that has become prevelant these days and uses the traditional “shooting from the hip” Halo style of combat.

That in and of itself is by no means a bad thing. I couldn’t help but feel that if I’d played this game earlier I would’ve had a greater appreciation of it, but I suppose the passage of time and the prevalence of other superior games in recent times makes Resistance look a little sub-standard.

Don’t get me wrong it is a good game, just a bit dated. The variety in game play is lacking though and could’ve benefited from some more innovations in its game play. There was a time when this game would’ve been very well regarded, but that time is not now.
