Horrible

I'm a gamer not a movie lover.

Can't keep story.
Watch story everytime when I start the game.
People already know a PS Vita system had short battery life, but can't believed they didn't think to add skip cutscenes feature for a PS Vita system.

Great Addition to the FPS Vita Games!

I read some of the reviews written by both major critics and gamefly users, and I feel like most were too harsh on this game. I haven't beaten it yet, but so far I'm really enjoying it. The single player seems relatively short. I've seen people saying it only took them a few hours to beat, but I don't think that's a real set back for this game. So far, the campaign is pretty cool. I was surprised. I didn't expect to enjoy it. The graphics are pretty cool for a vita game. It's pretty intense so far. Some guy said the voice acting was over the top (I don't know what he meant about that, but I see nothing wrong with it). I haven't had a chance to fiddle with the online portion of the game because it requires an online pass for it. I'm not gonna be one of those douchebags that rate the game low because of an online pass (that's childish and immature) it's only 10 bucks to get it. I've actually had thoughts on keeping it if the online were great. The controls are smooth as well! The game makes good use of the touch screen controls as well as the rear touch pad (ex. sliding the grenade emblem on the screen to throw grenades, tapping the rear touch pad to run). What's also cool is there are documents hidden throughout the game that could be letters citizens wrote to family members during the war, army people writing intel, and you can find them and read them.

All in all, I'd rate this game a good 8 out of 10. The only bad thing I could see is not being able to test the online. I'm sure it's a good addition to the game though! I suggest renting and or buying this game to anyone looking for a good FPS experience on the PSVita!

A Bit Unfair for this Fun Corridor Shooter

Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita

+ Fun Shooter.
+ Nice Graphics.
+ Great Assortment of Weapons.
+ Great Style and Cutscenes.
+ Nice Sound Effects.
+ Fun Multiplayer on the go.

- Levels are kind of lifeless.
- Voice Actors in game can be WAY over the top.
- Levels can be on the brown side a lot.
- Controls can be a little touchy and gimmicky.

Resistance for Vita is a fun game and ties into the PS3 Trilogy nicely. The Cutscenes have great style and setup the universe the game lives in. The graphics are good overall and the frame rate is solid. The textures are a bit on the brown side though. The sound effects are good but some of the voice actors are over the top and really annoying. Controls feel good but can be convoluted and gimmicky at times. Multiplayer is good but not anything special. I had fun with this game and I really like the Resistance games on PS3. This game is not as good as those but I didn't expect it to be either. I think that some people wanted this game to reinvent the genre and instead is just good example. If you like Resistance and have a Vita then give it a rent. Sometimes haters are just gonna hate.
