not perfect...but still first portable FPS

Overview
==================
I think the critics have been too harsh with this game. It isn't great, but is still one of the best Vita titles in my opinion. You finally have a proper FPS on the Vita.

The critics are right that it is fairly plain story and characters that don't suck you in. It is a fun to play campaign only if you just enjoy FPS gameplay. The mutliplayer I found very respectable. Once again first time worth playing a shooter on a portable system.

I think this is a buy for most FPS fans...at the very least a good rent.

Pros
=============
1) good graphics
2) controls are well done (it isn't perfect as you have to double tap the back to run and some of the touch mechanics are cumbersome....however not much you can do without L2, R2, L3, R3)
3) cool weapons (cross bow is really cool)

Cons
===============
1) story and voice acting is not engaging
2) must have online pass for multiplayer (which I have because I bought instead of renting)

Resistance Burning Skies Is A Pretty Solid fps It's Definitely Nice To Have Two analogue sticks which makes it feel just like a traditional console shooter though the game is extremely short I literally beat it the day It came in the mail I enjoyed my time from start too finish and if your a trophy hunter you'll be happy to know you can get a platinum in about six hours On the multiplayer side of things it is pretty bare bones but regardless still pretty fun for whats there especially if you have a few friends with you(you'll need a online pass which cost $9.99) while you wont be blown away with what the game has to offer all in all burning skies is a good first step for fps games on handhelds and a good sign of things to come for ps vita shooter fans
