Note: The pros and cons portion of this post was written in April 2008. I am posting this entry on November 4, 2008 – the day I purchased Resistance 2. I have back-dated this post to April of 2008 to reflect the time period when I played the game.
Initial Experience – Pre Rumble
I picked up Resistance Fall of Man (RFoM) the day I purchased my PS3 in August of 2007). However, my initial experience wasn’t good.

Resistance Fall of Man – Post Rumble – Ummm…. Good!
In mid April, 2008, Sony finally released the Dual Shock 3 controller with rumble. After figuring out how to get rumble to work (details here), I gave the game another try. I’m glad I did. I liked it so much I played through the entire game and then played 50% of it through again on the hardest level.
I was surprised and delighted with how much I enjoyed the game. It took me awhile to get into it but was really enjoying it once I figured it out (especially the unique weaponry).
