    Wow, how dissapointing can the PSP get? I am not expecting anything grand. A simple game, say a well done side-scroller of gameboy graphic quality would even appease me. Unfortunately, even with decent graphics and impressive sound, many PSP games are entirely not worth $40. This game, with horrid controls made for the skills of a 3rd grader, is not worth more than $12. All hype and Wow, how dissapointing can the PSP get? I am not expecting anything grand.

This game, with horrid controls made for the skills of a 3rd grader, is not worth more than $12. All hype and desperate reviews, this game dissapoints. The previous two Siphon filter games are better, and even they were lacking. I get the feeling that many PSP Official Sites give such lackluster games high praise so they can keep there jobs. Example: This game. Looks horrible (even for PSP standards,) plays horrible, and is downright tepid. God, please inspire gamemakers to use the PSP in a suiting fashion...please cause them to make a worthwhile game. Expand

    Catering to a portable game console and still keeping Resistance fans happy is a tall order, but at the end of the day Resistance: Retribution pulls off these difficult tasks with flying colors.
  2. Resistance: Retribution is just what the doctor ordered - groundbreaking multiplayer, slick visuals, and an action-packed campaign make this one of the most impressive PSP games to date.
  3. Much like Resistance 2, Retribution is more than the sum of its parts. The single-player campaign may be linear and stagey, but it's also effortlessly fun and incredibly polished. The multiplayer doesn't contain many surprises, but it does a better job of matching the online modes of "proper" consoles better than most rivals in its genre. Annoyances are minor and fleeting in nature, and the game punches above its weight with a substantial and coherent feel that too many handheld offerings lack.
