Very Good

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.

Good Action, Worst story

It's fun. I mean the action is good and the weapons are cool. However, the story is painful. I mean I usually don't mind straight forward linear games when the actions good. This was something else though. I mean PAINFULLY lame. I don't even really get what happens in the end. Stupid story and fun action. I beat the whole game in two sittings without really trying. If you want a quick action game to try then try this. I haven't played the PS3 version so I don't know how to compare them.
Won't be anyone's favorite game but not a waste of time. Just click mute during the cute scenes to preserve your sanity.
