Resistance Capture the Flag |

I was having so much fun playing capture the flag in CoD3 on my PS3 that I thought I’d give it another try in Resistance last night. I mostly played defence, and received several “Defender” merrit badges that way. I got a 5-kill in a row one as well. And a couple for killing someone taking your flag. It’s very satisfying to see those badges come on-screen. It is extra-satisfying to kill someone with your flag.

It took me a moment to get oriented in the game, because I’d never fought a human versus human battle before. So when someone started shooting at me for no apparent reason I thought he was a team-mate killer. Also, it took me a while to figure out how people were running so fast. Tap the L2 button quickly folks, tap the L2!

The game was set up so that the only weapons (besides grenades) were the machine gun, the rocket launcher, and the shotgun. I think that was a pretty good choice. I didn’t miss the other weapons at all. But the game was also set up to do 6 rounds of capture the flag, which was way too long. I had to quit after the fourth round (I think) to get some sleep. I hope my stats weren’t lost, because I put a lot of effort into that game, which simply went too long! Looking at my stats page now, I think they were kept, which is good. I don’t remember what I did previously in CtF.

I tried using the headset again, but there was just some kid, must have been 8 years old or so, asking around for his buddy, and then chatting a lot. I don’t know why I bother. The good news, though, is that this time I didn’t need to re-pair my headset to get it to work. Yay!

One last thing. Near the end of the game the matches were getting quite uneven. The blue team had 10 players to our orange team’s 5. Not exactly an even fight. In the end, the enemy won the last round with a score of 5-4. I actually managed to secure the blue flag near the end of the game, and got more than halfway back to home base, but then got killed. If I had scored, we would have won. Grrrrr…..

My CtF kill ratio is over 1.0! 1.059 to be exact. That’s a big achievement for me, believe it or not.

I don’t know why the teams were so uneven. The system matches the team for you. That was my only real complaint, and I plan to play CtF again. One day I’ll even get up the nerve to play something like Breach.

  • What? No Resistance players out there?

    I play Resistance, however I haven’t tried CTF yet, I haven’t been online a about a week since Im playing Zedla atm.

    My main problem is I play late nights. I’m sure once christmas comes around we will have a lot more players.

    I play resistance all the time. I haven’t played CTF or Meltdown yet. I’m starting to get better at deathmatch though.

  • Can anybody tell me what the main story mode (offline) game is like?

  • Daniel

    This seems like a good game to give a try when I get a ps3. Like Gary I wonder if the single player mode has a decent storyline….I’m a big fan o rpgs but I do try an action game once in a while, they are probably the best way to see some of the power of the ps3.

    I’m hesitant to relay much story. three speech has a pretty good review of the single player last month. Although they explain a few plot points in that, Its not really major spoilers since the infection starts like 10 minutes into the game.

    The single player story is pretty good. It keeps you interested, without bogging down the action. it switches from solo to squad mode often. Your squad controls themselves and aren’t as stupid as some games. For the most part they aren’t running in front of you. I don’t think you can damage them anyways. You can let your squad die or defend them and keep them around to help. A lot of the time your solo anyways. They have intel you collect along with skill points for doing tasks to unlock costumes and stuff. But that doesn’t effect the story just adds replay.

    I’m only on the start of the 4th chapter myself.

    I enjoyed the single player mode quite a bit actually. It had a decent story with some good voice acting. Some levels are like 5 minutes long while others seemed like they would never end. The basic story surrounds ofcourse the Chimarens and how they manufacture more Chimarens through viral infections. Most of the world has succumbed to death and the last standing stronghold is located in the UK. You play the part of an American who has some special personal twists that I can’t comment on without giving away part of the story. Just me saying I can’t tell you what happens because I could give away part of the story should signify there is a little story there to be had.

    So short it has an interesting story and the single player mode is fun.
