Excerpt: It has nasty aliens in it and it’s an FPS. There’s no doubting that one of the PS3’s biggest launch games, Resistance: Fall of Man has its similarities with the gargantuan Halo series, which it has to be said is also on another console.

Conclusion: Resistance 2 will take place right where the first game left off. Shifting venues, we’ll see the series protagonist, Sergeant Nathan Hale, head to America where he will join up with a special defense force called The Sentinels, who are preparing for an inevitable attack from the invading alien forces of the Chimera. Before long, the Chimera launches their attack on the US, hitting the country simultaneously from both coasts.
