Resistance is finished! |

IGN has got what is probably the final preview of Resistance before launch.

The first point worth highlighting is that the game is finished- IGN was given a two level demo to try out, but there are very few differences between this and the TGS build. Shadows have been turned on, enemy AI works better as a team, the number of cover points and allies has been beefed up… basically there is a lot going on at one time in the final version of the game. New information has come to light too, damage is limb specific- hit an alien in the knee and he’ll fall to his knees, shoot the hoses on a Chimera and they’ll splinter off. Your AI colleagues cannot do all the work though, its up to you to win the war, but they can injure your enemy. Health is similar to Halo, as in it will regenerate over time following damage, but it is divided into quarters.

Finally, the resolution of the game has been locked at 720p, whilst Insomniac tried to reach 1080p, but they discovered they did not have enough RAM left to make it manageable, Ted Price explains it more in a Q and A session. Ted also mentions that due to some improvements, the size of the game has fallen down to 16GB- PAL video has been removed and the compression improved.

IGN’s preview

  • That’s great news to hear it’s done. That very cool about shooting them on a certain part of there body and they react to it. I can’t wait to play this game!

  • Pc

    Yup….It’s finally done !!! I just got done watching all the new videos on IGN and the game looks amazing !!! Less than a month away from playing it in my own room……..can’t wait !!! 🙂

  • Everyone that’s a member at this site should schedule a time to play this game on-line together, when the PS3 is out. 🙂

  • funkfes2000

    thats graet. can’t wait to play this game this will be the most played game during the launch period for the ps3 i reserved mine some time ago

  • ‘ ‘ whilst Insomniac tried to reach 1080p, but they discovered they did not have enough RAM left to make it manageable ‘ ‘

    mmm this could mean future problems.

    anyway Resistance is the only reason im getting a PS3 at launch,cant wait ^^ specially online play..

  • This is going to be my first FPS. I only want to play it because it’s being done by the guys at Insomniac, which means it’s going to be a great game. 🙂

  • It still amazes me how this company did a total 180 from their past stuff to make a hardcore FPS. This is the company of Ratchet and Clank, and Spyro!? It’s just amazing to see they are capable of quality, regardless of genre.

    Anyone have an estimated time it takes to complete the game? I want to compare it to GOW’s 10-12 hours of play lol.

    Shouldn’t be long until we get a review. I am really curious to see the first reviews and what the overall impressions are of the system and launch games. This is such a different system that anything in the past.

  • Yes, I’m looking forward to all the reviews too. I’ll be giving mine! Hopefully on November 17th!

  • xberserker, that’s a cool idea but Tom and I will have to wait until March next year at the earliest.

    I would still love to play online with our readers and Henning, Darrin & Tom. 8)
