Resistance was one of the original titles that were released with the Playstation 3. This game attracted a huge following as it provides an action packed campaign that can be completed in a co-op mode in addition to a highly entertaining online option. The co-op mode is seamless and you and your partner will beat up the bad guys as you work your way through the storyline together. The online portion of this game lost a bit of steam when Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was introduced!
