I agree, its ridiculous that 7-8 out of 10 is considered a poor score. That is 70-80%! I gave Bulletstorm 6/10 when I reviewed it and I meant that as a good game and well above average. I thought average would be 5 but on the likes of IGN and Gamespot average seems to be 7/10.

Some of the models on here are AMAZING looking. I am nowhere near the painter some of you guys are, but here are my Chaos Knights in progress:

worst flash light since Doom 3

Wow you must be really good at it. I was dying a fair bit so that probably padded the game out a bit. I was playing on normal but I still thought the game was fairly tough and yea I had nearly all of my weapons maxed but that was because of all the replaying sections I was having to do. Actually, when you mention the ending being disappointing I agree and I actually think a lot of the games I have played this year so far have had poor endings. I hated the Deus Ex ending and Killzone 3 ended awfully, among other games. Its a nasty trend.

Yes I can't believe that they opened the door about what was talking to Hale at the end of 2 and then never resolved it. REALLY annoying. There were some parts in the game, especially chapter 17-18 when I had a few frustrating deaths from silly things so I second the idea of health regenerating to 30%. I still respect the design decision that they took to have it not regenerate at all, but I would prefer your idea. 
 
It is a bit short, a problem I am having with a lot of new games. I did it in just over 9 hours so that was a bit disappointing, I could have sworn that fall of man was longer, but maybe I am wrong on that. They definitely underused the plot elements that they had from the series, and I am not sure why considering they had 3 years. Still I enjoyed the game despite these flaws.

Yes I didn't like the first one at all to be honest, and the second game was good but made some mistakes. I think this one is significantly improved. I would equate it to the jump from Assassins Creed 1 to Assassins Creed 2. Having said that, this game is not going to win any one over to the franchise. If you don't like the core gameplay then you still won't like it. Still, totally fair point you make, and I agree that it is far from the most exciting game out at the moment. I only bought it myself because I has a gift card.

oh yea your right lol, thanks I have changed it. I was writing it fast, just getting thoughts out there. Yes its definitely worth getting, though maybe wait for it to be a bit cheaper because its about 8-10 hours and the multiplayer is not exactly mind blowing.

Yea I am a bit jaded of the FPS genre at the moment as well. So much so that I am not particularly interested in modern warfare 3 or battlefield 3. What I liked about resistance 3 was that it just suspends realism for a good old fashioned health kit required battle with aliens for the fate of the world. It was a fun romp, could have been better but could have been a lot worse as well.

Having just completed Resistance 3 a few hours ago I have a few thoughts on the game. I am really impressed by all the advancements that Insomniac made in the game. I think the 3 year development cycle really helped them polish the game, so it finally seems on par with Ratchet and Clank. I love the light hearted nature of the Ratchet and Clank games, so it was great to see Insomniac FINALLY get the bleak dark franchise done properly.

I love that you can carry all the weapons you want, fuck realism I want fun. The new chimeran enemies are fantastic, those long legs jumping around a level are so much fun to take on. Its a lovely tactical game, with a weapon for every situation. I miss the boss fights from Resistance 2 but the new enemies make up for the lack of boss fights I think. I love the weapons wheel and needing med kits, fuck realism I want fun. The new chimeran enemies are fantastic, those long legs jumping around a level are so much fun to take on.

I am going to go into spoiler territory now so you have been warned if you are reading this:

The level design was very linear at times but overall its a great game and really surprises me because when I watched the E3 footage I thought it looked very poor. I think it would be fair to say that its a triple A title in terms of its quality, and its a pity that it probably won't get the sales it deserves. I have a review of it done if anyone is interested.

Dragon Age 2 because of its shifting the story away from the events of the first game, and for the gameplay and visual changes they made.
