Were You Disappointed With Resistance 2? | PS3Blog.net
When the PS3 launched everyone and their cat agreed that Resistance: Fall of Man was the only game worth purchasing for the system. It went on to sell over a million copies leaving fans of the series with high hopes for the sequel. While Resistance 2 was well-received by the gaming media ( G4TV’s X-Play rated it 5/5 with high praise), Senior community manager James Stevenson, in an interview with VideoGamer.com, admitted that some fans of the series believed Resistance 2 “was a failure”.
“Resistance 2 got better reviews than Resistance 1,” said Stevenson. “But the long term fan feedback from that game weighed on me.
“The hardcore fans of Resistance 1 were maybe a little bit disappointed. Those folks consistently expressing that – especially GAF [NeoGAF] – it was like your dog turned on you,” Stevenson explained.
“That’s the feeling of it. You had this dog that loved you. You loved the dog, too, but they expressed all this affection for you. And then suddenly the dog bites your hand and it’s that feeling of, ooh, ow, that really hurts.
