This week Gamestop Managers had a press conference. They got to see an updated build of Resistance 2, Street Fighter IV arcade sticks, and play tons of exclusive games. A poster on Neogaf who is a manager at Gamestop has commented on the updated build of Resistance 2 and claims it looks better than Gears 2!
*Remember all the polish in R2 has not been put in, the game will look magnitudes better than this build.
"the R2 video was DAMN inducing and involved a lot of Ted Price almost dying XD (hey Insomniac guys, and any other devs who had their people out there, know that a lot of us really really REALLY appreciate you guys coming out. thank you so much :o)
very different pace as compared to standard Resistance. the level occurs in a bog-ish forest with lots of jumping out, cloaked enemies, as opposed to wave after wave after wave. the up-close AI (i forget the word Price used) is a really cool concept when lent to an enemy like these. pretty freaky stuff. everything blows up really nice and it's up there with the best looking stuff so far. i haven't been following r2 closely so i don't know if the weapons were new or anything.
I'd compare it to a CoD4 or 5. Looks less plastic-y than GoW; the lighting looks more organic to me as well. (keep in mind tho i PLAYED GoW2 and just WATCHED R2) not necessarily BETTER, but I liked it visually more."
I played Gears of War 2, and in my PAX impressions thread said I was unimpressed visually. It looks good, but not mind blowing. I'm not the only one it seems.
