Sony's big FPS release on PS3, Resistance 2, is currently sitting on an 88 per cent average review score on Metacritic.
That leaves the game at 16th spot in the PS3 All Time High Scores list on the site – which aggregate scores from the US and UK specialist press.
IGN gives the title 95 per cent, reporting:
The single player is epic in scope and in story, which is practically worth the price of admission by itself. Then you throw in the extremely engaging co-op and competitive play, which expands on replayability in just about every way possible. Toss in a generous number of unlockables, trophies and community support, and you've got a phenomenal experience.”
Elsewhere, Wired awards the game 90 per cent, writing:
While it gives players that quintessential amped-up FPS experience, it isn't doing anything especially innovative or new.
"The firefights are intense, the pacing will keep you on the edge of your seat and quite a few scenes prove absolutely breathtaking, but the game's chief strength is the story that binds it all together, and the multiplayer modes that should keep us amused for quite some time.”
