The Contenders:

Resistance 2

Insomniac’s second entry in the Resistance franchise was met with both acclaim and alarm. As a shooter, the game was very different from its predecessor in terms of mechanics and atmosphere. But it wasn’t all bad; in fact, some of it was downright awesome. With its one-of-a-kind “MMOFPS” co-op mode, expansive competitive multiplayer options, and globe-trotting campaign with no shortage of epic, there was enough content in Resistance 2 to warrant a spot on this list. It's not the game everybody wanted, but it certainly did Resistance fans justice.

Resistance 3

After its predecessor's mixed reception, Insomniac went back to the drawing board and ripped the franchise apart. When sewing it back together, the team included everything that made the first game so special, and more. The campaign can be, from moment to moment, thrilling, saddening, inspiring, and even scary. Resistance 3 is said to be the last console entry in the franchise, and we couldn’t have asked for a better send-off. All hail the weapon wheel, and may your Bullseye tags fly ever true.
