The Resistance 3 Doomsday Edition has everything you need to bring every fight against the Chimera into your living room. For gamers looking for the ultimate Resistance 3 experience, The Doomsday Edition is the perfect package.
Resistance 3 is the 2011 release in Sony's flagship Resistance First-Person Shooter game franchise for play exclusively on PlayStation 3. Picking up right where Resistance 2 left off, players follow the adventures of Joseph Capelli -- introduced in the previous game -- in a desperate effort to turn the tide against the ever-strengthening Chimeran horde. Features include: PlayStation Move support, a large and strategic weapons arsenal, smarter and more agile Chimeran enemies and deep multiplayer options including co-op online and offline as well as progression based 16-player online multiplayer.
Along with all the software features found in the Standard game edition, the Resistance 3: Doomsday Edition contains all the hardware accessories required to unleash the full range of PlayStation Move functionality built into the game. See the full list of hardware accessories included with this edition below.
It's August 1957, four years after the conclusion of the event of Resistance 2 which left Lieutenant Nathan Hale dead on the battlefield against the invading Chimeran race and Joseph Capelli dishonorably discharged from the US Army for killing Hale. With the Chimera completely occupying the planet, Capelli has given up on the seemingly hopeless fight and has retreated into hiding underground with his wife and young son in Haven, Oklahoma. But as the climate of the planet continues to collapse, scientist Dr. Fyodor Malikov finds Capelli with a plan to deliver a devastating blow against the occupying Chimeran force. In order to protect his family, Capelli must leave them behind and embark on a harrowing mission across the country to New York City. Along the way, he and Malikov will encounter the survivors and remnants left in the aftermath of the brutal Chimeran invasion.
A Complete Multiplayer Gameplay Experience
In addition to an epic single-player campaign, Resistance 3 offers a complete multiplayer gaming experience to share with friends around the corner or around the world. This includes two-player online or split-screen co-op through the single-player campaign and a new, focused progression-based multiplayer experience online that supports up to 16 players.

Another horrible feature with the Move in this game is you can not change the button layout in any way. You are stuck using the L1 to aim and the L2 to throw grenades. The big problem is your finger naturally rests on the L2 button of the Nav controller and you will accidentally hit it quite frequently and waste a lot of grenades. I honestly can not understand why there is no option to at least swap the L1 and L2 buttons. It makes no sense. You can do this in Killzone 3.
After hours and hours of tweaking the move controls I was about to sell this game and take the loss until I decided to see how it played with a DS3 gamepad. After playing with the sluggish Move controller for so long I was absolutely shocked to see how much better the game plays with just a normal controller. Everything is smooth and functions correctly. You can even swap button controls. It made the game so much 100% more enjoyable and now I will keep it for sure. It is a shame that they even tried to call this game Move Compatable. If you already bought this edition try it with Killzone 3 and then you will see what the PS3 Move is really capable of doing.
-The game is definately worth buying and playing. Don't even bother trying to use the PS Move or Sharpshooter with this game. Hopefully they will release a update that will fix all the issues with the Move.
-The PS Move and Sharpshooter do work well, just not with this game. The Sharpshooter will tire you out after a few hours and it will never be accurate. You just have to use it as something to hold your Move controllers and watch your crosshairs instead. Honestly, I returned my Sharpshooter to the store after a few weeks because it was just easier to play without it.
Sorry to mention Killzone 3 so much in this review, but it really is worth playing with the Move.
The game itself is fun so far, but since this is a review for the sharpshooter gun edition, there are two glaring problems with the sharpshooter:
Zoom -- inefficient implementation and a poor zoom key choice, mixing it up with grenade all the time (since they are close and the grenade button is more prominent).
Jump while running is almost impossible due to the jump key mapping to "X" next to the movement joystick.
In both cases, you can't redefine the keys. If a patch is released that takes care of those, I would revise and add stars. As it is now, it takes a lot of fun away from an otherwise solid and enjoyable game.
Note: This review is completely about the PS Move Sharpshooter in relation to Resistance 3.
I've been a fan of light gun games since the days of Lethal Enforcers, Area 51, Virtua Cop and more. With that, I read about Resistance 3 and the PS Move, bought a PS3 and had my Doomsday Edition set on pre-order. I quickly bought Resistance 1 & 2 and played through them. Boy was I disappointed when I unpacked my Doomsday edition. The PS Move controls are awful for Aim Down Sight controls (ie Zoom In Controls). I would not suggest at all playing this game with the Move. While shooting from the hip works pretty good, the calibration needs a great deal of work. After Aiming Down Sight my calibration seems to get screwed up and pointing at the center of the screen has the cursor then pointing closer to one of the corners.
Aim Down Sight is not like the aiming from hip. When aiming from hip you literally point the sharpshooter where you want to shoot and it'll shoot at that spot which is great. When you try to zoom (Aim Down Sight) and fire, the sharpshooter works more like an Air-Mouse that has absolutely no 1:1 relation. You have to control the rate at which the cross-hairs move by moving your Sharpshooter away from center. That is, you could be aiming at the corner of the screen while the cross-hair turns, wait for it to center on your target, point the sharpshooter back to the center of the screen and fire. It's really not at all an enjoyable experience, you pretty much have to play the entire game shooting from the hip which doesn't pan out so well. I'm not alone in my opinion of the sharpshooter, you need only head to the official Resistance 3 forums to find out about all the complaints of the PS Move and Multiplayer.
The last thing I'd say is that the cross-hairs are way too big and sometimes gets in the way of looking at enemies in the distance, I hope they make an option to customize the reticle in this game.
My guess is they rushed some details of this game in order to compete for a earlier release date to Gears of War 3 on the X360.
This is my first review, and after having spent about 400$ on the PS3, R1, R2 and R3 Doomsday edition I just wanted to warn any others before they jump on this package.

Great Review Comparing Killzone 3 and Resistance 3: Google "Resistance 3 Sharp Shooter First Impressions" by Vivid Gamer
Both myself and my brother bought this package. Neither of us had a Move until now. We both, independently had the EXACT same problem w/the Move while in the SharpShooter gun. Constant recalibration while in gun, fine, but awkward while out of gun.
The game itself is AWESOME. Resistance 3 is sooo much fun. TONS of replay value, both in the stand alone game and online. I game i give 5 stars hands down.
And after all, the PS Move is a great part of this bundle, in fact, the reason why I bought this bundle.
PS Move was easy to set up, but I wish they had included at least 1 USB cable to charge the controllers. I may be in the minority, but I only have 1 PS3 controller, this means, I only have 1 USB cable and both Move controllers need to be charged.
This meant charging one at a time and having to wait additional time to play. As I said, I may be in the minority about this, but I'm sure I can't be the only one.
As other reviewers have pointed out, zooming is basically a death sentence, movement is sluggish and odd, and button placement inconvenient without the choice of re-mapping the controller.
I have yet to test Move with another game, but I ran into an issue that I have not been able to confirm whether it's a defective product, or just how Move works with this game...
But, after I calibrate the controller by aiming at the camera and then the corners when instructed, the crosshair remains aligned only for a few seconds of gameplay. After that, the crosshair always displays to the right of where I am aiming. I tried the calibration process more than once, and the only thing left I need to do is test Move with another game. This concerns me though.
The Doomsday Edition itself it's nothing fancy. Just the game, PS Move, and the Sharpshooter bundled together. However, this is a good deal in pricing if you were going to buy all the items separately.
I will try to update my review as further play the game and test Move. But right now, in MY opinion, the Wii, Kinect and Move are just a gimmick. At one point or another I have owned all 3 and they are nothing I cannot live without.
