Just finished Resistance 3. It was great, but this is a bit of a peculiar series. First off, this game controls funnily, it doesn't control quite like FoM or 2 and I couldn't tweak the controls quite to my liking, but as far as the way the character aims, moves, feels it's more than fine. Once again, gunplay was great and imaginative, although it felt like the shotgun never got better and that is a shame as there are a few ways it could have. I liked the gameplay a lot, but again the series is odd in that the games do not play too much like one another. Judging this individual game, it was a more tactical and strategic affair I would say in that weapons were fitted best against certain enemies than others and health was occasionally a precious commodity, although on normal it gives back a little bit of health after you die enough times. Not to say the game was not hard still, it certainly was.
The game looks great, but this came at two expenses. First, the resolution is obviously lowered, and that doesn't bother me past the initial realization. Second, the frame rate and overall game feel less smooth. Not quite like Dragon's Dogma with the frames, but sometimes when the snow effects, twelve enemies shooting at you, physics and dismemberment, and detailed environments all kick in it can be a bit slow, thankfully it's never enough to make one get out of it. It is annoying though, make no mistake. There is no screen tearing and I appreciate that, I would much rather the game have no screen tearing than a high resolution, screen tearing just about ruins a lot of games for me.
Overall, and not too in depth of course, this game was great and I highly recommend it. If anyone is ever stuck between Resistance and Killzone, I would recommend Resistance. If one wants a quick action shooter, these games are excellent for that as well. And if someone just bought a PS3 I would say get these games as they make the system's library expand quickly and with quality. I admit that I do not like Ratchet and Clank too much, but these games were excellent, well done to Insomniac and how I wish they would make another one.
