I bought it on PS3 launch day, the next day I was playing an online FPS for the very first time. I liked the quirky British sci-fi story and setting and the game itself was grand. I collected all the tapes(?) and the back story was cool. A nice cliff-hanger ending and everything was set for a sequel. Such a shame they panicked and rebooted the series with the generic dog-turd that was Resistance 2. Oh well.
Agreed! The British sci-fi setting is wonderful - you can't beat fighting through the war-torn streets of Manchester, and the game does a really good job of making the war being fought feel real. I love the game for its local co-op especially though, I think that's where it really shines.
The next best Resistance game is Retribution on the PSP, which is basically Resistance: FOM x Syphon Filter, but that's a TPS not an FPS. It helps greatly that the setting is still European.
