when i first heard there was a resistance game on psp i was a little curious as to just how well the series would cross from the ps3 games. i was very impessed. the graphics are awsome, the loading times are mostly pretty low, and plus the story is full of twists and action to keep your attention.
the over the shoulder third person veiw and the aiming system is helpful with the camera rotation controls which are hindered a little from the lack of a right thumbstick shooter fans are used to. while it is automatic aim by default, pressing up on the dpad with let you aim more accuratly, for head shots especially!
another thing i liked about this game was the diversity of enemies and the constant action. it seems like every time you go around a corner, there was a squad of hybrids waiting to ambush, or a boiler parade marching toward me, or even a titan waiting with his cannon ready to strike. keeps ya on your toes, and that adds to the overall intensity this game presents in such a small package.
i say that if you are an action shooterfan, go for it!!

Simply put if you enjoyed Syphon Filter You will feel right at home here. Controls, play style, and unlockables all feel very familiar and tight.

Pros: Great
-graphics (not god of war but close)
-feels very smooth and fast
-Great replay with tons of weapons and unlockables
-Fast and Fun multiplayer (Not many people even online yet as this is day one but still finding matches fast)

-Game feels a little easy with the auto look
-Graphics can get sluggish if you begin running and gunning to fast for the background loader
-multiplayer can get laggy with too many explosions and players (Honestly not that bad of a hang up considering the overall experience)

Overall I would say its one of the few games I would call a must own. Definitely a lot of fun and worth the time to atleast rent. Characters are great, weapons are fun, all the monsters have different weaknesses that are fun to figure out, and the most extensive multiplayer I have ever seen on a psp personally.

Not bad but could use some work

Thought the game looks good graphically, the control scheme took a great deal of time to get used to. Many of the cut scenes were lock so you had to listen to the lame story line. Unlike the main Resistance games the story lacked any real interest and a lot of the time I just left the game running and went to do other things for a few minutes until I could get back to playing. If this is the best shooter that the PSP has to offer then Sony is going to have real troubles ever getting true gamers to this handheld.
