You have several different game modes to choose from. Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Deathmatch, Chain Reaction, War Games, Breach Mode and Deathmatch Small Mode will be the options. I found Chain Reaction to be very fun as you have to control several areas of the map to contain a wormhole. Team Deathmatch was the most played as well as Deathmatch Small which is a closer run and gun type mode.
My personal favorite online mode is the Co Operative mode. Playing through the story with a buddy is so much fun and I believe is a must have feature in all shooter games. Resistance 2 featured up to 8 players in Co Op, in this title it’s back down to the standard 2 which I feel is a smart move.
Overall I can’t say enough good things about this game and the entire series. If you haven’t played these games yet, you are doing yourself a disservice. Fantastic visuals mixed in with great story telling, awesome weapons and fun online experience. The game is rated mature and you will witness some graphic disturbing things especially towards the end of the game.
Resistance 3 is only available on the Playstation 3 and you can find the game at a budget price or purchase the newly released Resistance 3 trilogy box set. I score the game a 9 out of 10.
