* HappyEndingOverride: The first game ends on a somewhat triumphant note, with the Chimera being driven out of Brittain after a long, arduous war. Then the sequel happens, which involves the Chimera having overrun the United States.

Insomniac released ''Resistance 2'' in 2008. In that, the US has captured a strange Angel called "Daedalus". Its appearance has caused the Chimera to greatly increase their tactical capabilities, and they have [[FromBadToWorse staged a massive invasion of the United States from the West and East coast]]. Nathan Hale is put in a platoon of soldiers who can also resist the Chimera virus and sent to track down the Russian scientist who can stop Daedalus. Notable for hinting at major revelations regarding the origin of the Chimera. The {{ARG}} ''Project Abraham'' was a lead up to ''Resistance 2'' that detailed what happened before ''Fall of Man''.

''Resistance: Fall of Man'' came out on the same day as the PlayStation3, and was the system's KillerApp for several months as Sony tried to figure out what they were doing.

A second portable game, ''Resistance: Burning Skies'', was recently released on the PlaystationVita. ''Burning Skies'' takes place during the Chimeran invasion of America, and focuses on Tom Riley, a New York City fireman who joins the fight against the Chimera. Unlike ''Retribution'', ''Burning Skies'' uses the same first-person gameplay style as the main games, and also makes use of the Vita's touchscreen.

* CapitalOffensive: In the altenate 1950s where an alien race attacked Earth instead of the Axis Powers, the aliens sweep through Europe with stunning quickness after having already overrun Russia (where they first arrived in the Tunguska Event of 1906). The first game sees the joint U.S. and British forces trying to retake London, which had been abadoned by the Brits months earlier, and destroy the massive tower. Which proves to be a InstantWinCondition against the aliens on British soil.
** In the BackStory, one of the things that proved just how frightnening the aliens are, is the fall of the Polish capital Warsaw. Out of a city of 2 million people, only ''1,000'' survived. This is because TheVirus is used on any humans that aren't killed to prepare them for transformation [[WeHaveReserves into more of the creatures]].
** Prior to ''Resistance 2'', before they launched their main attack on America, Washington had been assaulted by the aliens during a Presidential speech. This forces the U.S. to move the government to Denver, which is inside the massive Liberty Defense Perimeter. [[spoiler: Sadly, it falls too, [[DownerEnding along with the rest of America, with the Perimeter being obliterated]]. So much of the government is killed, that the military has to directly take charge of what's left]].
** ''Resistance 3'' has an opening cutscene which recaps the story, and includes alien foot soldiers marching in front of the Eiffel Tower. [[spoiler: And the game ''finally'' gives us a true HappyEnding by letting humanity win. Humans begin retaking the world, which includes a mention by an Irish fighter that they have retaken and secured safe passage to Dublin, the capital of Ireland]]

''Resistance'' is a series of [[FirstPersonShooter First-Person Shooters]] (beginning with ''Resistance: Fall of Man'') by Creator/InsomniacGames. Yes, the guys who did ''SpyroTheDragon'' and ''{{Ratchet and Clank}}''.

* HopelessWar: Humanity has been almost entirely wiped off the face of Eurasia, the British have lost England and are barely holding on in Scotland, the enemy is vastly more numerous, more technologically advanced, and can turn those of you it kills into more it itself. ItGetsBetter when the Chimera are kicked out of the British Isles and mainland Europe starts to get taken back, [[spoiler: only for it to get a LOT worse when the Chimera invade North America]]. And humanity is desperately short on warm bodies.
** [[FromBadToWorse But wait, there's more!]] The Chimera are also using their technology to make the Earth much, much colder than normal as they have a higher metabolism and otherwise require personal cooling devices. One level in the first game takes place in July in England that is under at least six feet of snow. Assuming that small pockets of people could survive after the world falls, it would not really matter as they would probably freeze to death.
*** This is much more noticeable in Resistance 3, because the Chimera are starting to terraform Earth and only a handful of humans are left to fight them.
*** Well, all they'd have to do to take care of that is burn tons of coal and drive SUVs everywhere for a few decades...
