Insomniac says fans believe Resistance 2 was a failure

Insomniac says fans believe Resistance 2 was a failure, and I am one of them. Not to say the game wasn't great, on the contrary, it is one of the best FPS games on any system. But compared to the first, the sequel was underwhelming. It left me feeling like something was missing, like something was not right, maybe it was the removal of the weapon wheel? Oh a lot of things were done right in the game, but I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.

In a recent interview with videogamer, Insomniac's community manager James Stevenson relayed what he felt.

"The hardcore fans of Resistance 1 were maybe a little disappointed. Those folks consistently expressed that - especially GAF - it was like your dog turned on you," Stevenson relayed.

"That's the feeling of it. You had this dog that loved you. You loved the dog too, but they expressed all this affection for you. And then suddenly the dog bites your hand and it's that feeling of, ooh, ow, that really hurts."

"The critics loved Resistance 2. Some people didn't like it, but for the most part.... And the metacritic's higher than Resistance 1. So we got better reviews than Resistance 1, but the overall opinion of it is that it was a failure by fans, that Resistance 2 was a failure because maybe the expectations were so high for it."

I know exactly how those fans feel, believe me. Get the full vibe here.
