    It's in my local Cex for 12 quid pre owned. I like the demo. Is the game worth a quick 12 quid?

    Just about worth that. It's fun enough, if incredibly generic and a bit bland. MP is ok.

    I've played it at a friends, don't have a PS3 myself, but from what I've played I'd say it's worth a pop.

    Cheers. I'll prob pick it up today, but I might go tomorrow and trade in Motorstorm. I bought it and played all of once. :(

    I played it round a mate's, it's pretty good, it reminds me of Timeshift, good basic gameplay but very bland (also no awesome time powers), in fact if you can pick up Timeshift for around the same price, i'd recommend that over Resistance.

    I've decided to put the extra tenner in and get the Orange Box. :D

    The only FPS I've ever enjoyed playing online. Team Deathmatch is huge, huge fun.

    You should also give Motorstorn some more time as it's fucking great.

    Again, give it some more time. It's a really fun game and actually quite unique. There's nothing else that quite feels the same.

    What you need to do is get your head round the boosting. Unlike other games, the boost is there more as a corrective measure. As you slide round corners use the boost to correct the oversliding. Once it clicks it's very fun indeed.

    It's really one of the only good exclusive games on the PS3 so worth sticking with, if only to justify the console purchase :)

    Stick with it Razz. I was a total failure at MS at first, but yeah - listen to those guys.

    Oh I see I was boosting everytime my temp was down. So it's for oversteer? Cool. I'll have another sesh tonight.

    He already has MS though, so he might as well get something out of it.

    MS graphics save it from being a rather generic racing game, imo.

    I found it fairly easy, won the first 10 or so races and got bored.

    Yeah, possibly the least generic racing game I've played.

    I like the location, but the AI aren't as good as I thought they'd be, and there aren't many tracks.

    I'm looking forward to the second one though.

    The MS music choice is AWFUL though.

    I love the soundtrack for MS.

    it has real character. Plus everytime Curve's Hell above the water comes on I have to pump up the volume.

    RFOM is well worth 12 quid, especially if you've got a mate who will play through the story with you on co-op.

    Its a very sturdy shooter, no COD4, but very good none the less.
