Every now and then a weapon comes along that makes the game it’s in that little bit better. The Lancer (Chainsaw Gun) in Gears of War is the obvious example. Admittedly, Resistance didn’t need a gun like this as it was already a brilliant game and is by far my favourite FPS on the PS3.
Now Resistance has the Splicer, a gun that fires electromagnetically charged saw blades at your enemy.
While it is a similar concept to the Ripper from Unreal Tournament, it just seems to do so much more damage. The secondary fire just puts a smile on my face and I think that it is going to bring a whole new dimension to how you take on the bigger enemies.
November couldn’t come around fast enough.
