So I finished Resistance 3 last night and it was pretty disappointing.

R3 will end up with a similar score as R and R2 on metacritic, which is a bit surprising considering how harsh reviewers have been as of late towards exclusives.

nah it's meta will still come down a few points. and reviewers haven't been harsh towards exclusives only. 

Even if it ends with 85 that's still about the same as the other games. Reviewers have mostly been harsh towards exlusives, but not exclusively.

IGN seems to disagree with the length of your playtime -

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/119/1191975p2.html

10hrs vs 5hrs is a significant discrepancy. They also talk about large scale battles and bosses (also contradicting you here). Not trying to say you didn't play the game, but it seems like you either didn't get as far as you claim, or you just didn't like it.

I just went onto IGN and read their review before seeing your post and I was going to say the exact same thing.  Now Im a little confused between what IGN said about the game and what the OP said.  Guess Ill just have to read more reviews to find out...or probably just buy the game and find out for myself.  Probably the latter.

Just about every review I could find praises the campaign, even more harsh and realistic ones like Eurogamer's. Most also say the campaign is a good 10-hrs, so I don't get him.

A good deal of the reviews surprised me, as in they are a lot higher than I expected. Then again, contrary to what some say in here (that Resistance isn't of high quality or of "similar quality to Ratchet & Clank"), the franchise has stapled itself as a key FPS franchise for it's supported brand. I was someone that really enjoyed Resistance 2 (although I was a tad disappointed with the removal of the weapon wheel). With that back and the thumbs up from gamers/reviewers alike, looks like I'm going to enjoy this! Have to wait till November 2nd though, I'm getting my copy with the PlayStation 3D Display.

See here's another example of a review claiming otherwise(boss battle,length etc).

Its like the OP played a different game......

I looked at a few other reviews and I dont get him as well.

I love the series so im sure it`ll hit my standards of being an exciting game.  Im glad Insomniac brought back all the features that made the first game great, especially the scroll wheel and split screen coop.

That's wicked you're getting that PS 3D display! I tried it the other day and loved the dual-screen feature is amazing.  The Sony worker there laughed when I asked if it can play PS3 through one glass while watching TV in the other lol. Some day it just might.  But congrats to your future TV! =)

I actually jumped the gun a bit, most reviews don't mention the campaign length, but that reinforces the point, I would think, that the length isn't an issue. Killzone 3 was ripped to shreds by reviewers on campaign length!

Yea I remember reading about how Killzone 3 took around 4-5 hrs completing campaign but when I played it I finished it in about 9-10 hrs.  I dont quite understand how those reviewers were able to come up with such a short time.   As the OP claims he finished Resistance 3 in under 5 hrs while IGN claiming 10, I think 10hrs seems more accurate and true.



actually GAMETRAILERS review says 8 hours long roughly..



Gamereactor says it was about 10 hours too.

They also say there were A LOT of memorable moments (especially boss encounters)...

(First opinion was 8/10, second opinion was 9/10)

The game is recieving really good scores... Beating Killzone 3 which I highly feel was nitpicked to death.
