Resistance 3 is not a happy game, and that's just fine by us. From the seemingly endless Chimera forces possessing infinitely superior technology to the atmosphere and artistic direction powering the Resistance franchise behind the scenes, it all adds up to one bleak picture, with a grim prediction on humanity's future. Never has that been more apparent or more visceral than in our latest Resistance 3 preview:
"The details that Insomniac Games have packed into this opening sequence are just stunning, and they perfectly set the bleak and desperate tone for the rest of the game. It all starts with protagonist Joseph Capelli, former soldier and killer of Resistance 2 hero Nathan Hale, awaking to the sight of his wife, Susan, who gives him a status update on their ill child, Jack. Through Joe’s eyes, we watch as he rests his hand on sleeping Jack’s head, telling us everything we need to know about what Joe, and the rest of humanity, stands to lose should the resistance fail."
If the colorful and explosions-packed adventures of colorful space marines and alien robots have numbed your taste to human, heart-breaking drama, be sure to tug those heartstrings with our full Resistance 3 preview!
