"With narrative characters, in-game movie sequences, cut scenes and heart-pumping music, C-12: Final Resistance provides a fully immersive gameplay experience for both the casual and hard-core gamer," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "C-12: Final Resistance proves our continued commitment in extending the availability of new and broad content for the original PlayStation platform."

In C-12: Final Resistance, the game begins in the aftermath of a hostile ground invasion of Earth by ravaging alien forces. At first, the purpose of the invasion is unknown, but to the horror of all surviving humans, the objectives become clear; the aliens plan to use the planet Earth to harvest all non-radioactive carbon from the planet, thus the title "C-12." Most of the human race has been decimated and those captured alive are used for "droning," the process by which the aliens reprogram and adapt humans into cyborg warriors.

It is up to you, playing as Resistance fighter Riley Vaughan, to save the earth from impending doom. Armed with an imaging unit that has been implanted to replace his left eye, as well as a powerful arsenal of weapons, Vaughan must complete tasks, collect items and destroy the enemy in order to carry out his missions and uncover the secrets behind the alien invasion. C-12: Final Resistance will allow players to explore dynamic, darkly detailed environments that include more than 35 different missions and objectives.

The independent Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated C-12: Final Resistance "T" for Teen. For more information about the ESRB visit http://www.esrb.org/.
