LTTP or ‘late to the party’ pieces are opportunities for us to catch up and write about games we missed out on the first time around. They may contain spoilers.
It’s rare for me to pick up a console at its launch. To me, the games available at that time aren’t worth picking up and thus I ignored Resistance: Fall of Man when I finally picked up my 60 GB PS3 in mid-2007. The consensus for Insomniac’s first person shooter was “generally favorable“, but despite the praise, I didn’t deem it worthy of a $59.99 CAD price tag. With Resistance 2 on its way and my new appreciation for Insomniac’s work after the fantastic Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, I thought it would be a prime opportunity to play through Resistance: Fall of Man. So, I got my hands on the game via other means. Through a trade via CheapAssGamer no less! Let’s see if I made a good trade.
