Speaking in an interview with Videogamer, Insomniac communinty manager James Stevenson has said that fan feedback with Resistance 2 “was like your dog turned on you.”
The game was released at the end of November last year, even recieving a 87 from Metacritic. But despite that, Stevenson admits it was a “failure” on the fans part.
“The hardcore fans of Resistance 1 were maybe a little bit disappointed. Those folks consistently expressing that – especially GAF, it was like your dog turned on you.
“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,” said Stevenson.
Well then, fan service all the way for Resistance 3, then.
