shooters don't get much more unappealing than a Resistance game. or was it Killzone. i haven't heard good things about either.
Depends on the person.
I've played Killzone 2 and 3 as well as Resistance 1-3 and Burning Skies on Vita.
The multi in Resistance 1-2 was competent. The multi in the two Killzone games was fantastic.
The campaigns in all of them leave something to be desired, but I actually really liked Resistance. First game I bought with my PS3 and I played the Hell out of it... platinum'ed it probably, if that were a thing, but I didn't do it for the trophies. I did it cause I liked it since trophies weren't even invented yet.
I'd rank every single one of these games above the games I've played from the Halo series (Halo 3, Halo: Reach) and I'd rather play anyone of them over a Halo game.
i am debating on picking up resistance 2 from the gamestop used-game clearance sale, is it good? the gameplay looks pretty crappy from the youtube videos. also does it have the same silly install bug like resistance 3?
I picked it up... September 2011? When GS had it for like $7 bucks. The campaign was average but probably the worst in the series... it's really janky and buggy. But where Resistance 2 shines is the multiplayer co-op. That mode was really fun. I had no problem playing the game enough that I ended up with all the co-op achievements in addition to the single player achievements. By this time, I had lost all desire to play TDM of any sort in shooters, so I skipped that mode entirely. I'm not sure how active the co-op is on that game these days, but considering it was a couple years old by the time I played it and I had no real problems finding a game -- it may still be kicking.
