May 29, 2012After playing through the single player campaign, I can safely say it's a very enjoyable experience. :) Not sure what the reviewers were playing, but it's a good story with pitch-perfect game play mechanics. It is anywhere from 5 to 8 hours, depending on which difficulty you choose. There is some replay value here, specifically with gun upgrades. This will keep me busy for weeks, at least.
Then, there is the multi-player. THIS is where the game got addicting. I absolutely LOVE the multi-player. You get into the matches very quickly, also...unlike any PSP game. Lol. If you pick it up for nothing else, get it for this. I highly recommend the game to any Vita owner. Again...no idea why anyone would give it a low review. The graphics aren't terrible either. They're fairly good for a handheld title. It may not look AS good as Uncharted: Golden Abyss or Wipeout 2048, but it's pretty close. It's a must-buy!… Full Review »
May 29, 2012The first dual analog first person shooter, and apart from a little bit of clunky controls and lacking the insomniac polish, this game is alot better than some people are making out. So don't cancel your pre-orders to soon. Sure the game isn't evolutionary but it is robust and offers alot to resistance fans. The campaign is well set out with five main missions which are exactly the right length. The Story is put together with sharp and well presentable cut scenes with better than average audio. With the high level of games on the PlayStation people have come to expect alot from video games with skyrim ranking up over 100 hours. So fans maybe annoyed with the short length to the campaign which at best makes 8+ hours but the fun will carry on in the multiplayer which is fun for short periods of drop in fun, sure the depth is missing but is a foot in the door for the future titles like call of duty to flourish on this evolutionary device. To finish this game shows the bright future ahead for vita and the idea that there is better to come is mouthwatering to say the least.… Full Review »
May 29, 2012The storyline is interesting, touchscreen controls aren't unnecessarily difficult to get the hang of. So the graphics aren't as good as they can be. But keep in mind that this is one of the first games made strictly for the vita and developers obviously aren't able to show the vita's full potential just yet. For the first FPS on the vita, Resistance: Burning Skies is a very solid game. Critics can complain about how often music plays or how the graphics aren't up to their standards, but amazing graphics don't make a game enjoyable. The content does.And this game has good enough content to make me want to pick up my vita instead of one of my consoles. Don't let the critics determine everything for you. I almost did, but I'm glad I didn't.… Full Review »
