The hype machine put a lot on the shoulders of Resistance: Burning Skies and the initial multiplayer snags didn't help matters. Still, I have enjoyed it and I think anyone who likes the series will too.
this game is really fun i have played through it 3 times already and got every single trophy. am just going to say that yes the story is just awful but the game works fine i never had a problem.
again with the story Mario games have no story yet they are great. if you love any of the resistance games then this one is a must have. i live in Canada and i can get the game for 10 bucks this is a steal i have put about 30 hours in it for 10 bucks.
THIS GAME IS EXCELLENT! Critics and people who claim to be resistance/ps fans unfairly disrespecting this game is absurd. Burning Skies is exponentially better than the subpar Unit 13, Burning Skies actually has a campaign unlike unit 13 and a standard (current day 6-8hr) length campaign that is really good. Burning skies has better graphics that are pretty good actually, a much better frame rate than unit 13. Unit 13 has a horrible frame rate do people not notice this? Yet, Unit gets compared to Burning skies by uninformed people and it out sold BS. I was weary about this game but i still got it because i am an actual playstation and Insomniac fan unlike all you other people down rating this game. So you say you played the game so you obviously have a Vita but you don't deserve to own a Vita or any playstation product if you don't support good sony exclusives go buy Call of Duty on xbox or the ultimate "dude" "Bro man" silly looking muscle bound charactor modeled Gears of War which really has gripping story huh? To the people saying the story ****, it doesn't at all and even gets strongly emotional when you are forced to do something terribly heart breaking late in the game, now that is a gripping and sad emotional moment granted it doesn't last long enough but it is better story and more emotional than anything in halo or gears and that is one scene on a handheld! Not to mention a good setting taking place in ny/nj even a level inside a giant organic chimera ship where the walls are tissue matter ect. not to mention a battle on a crumbling George Washington bridge! I've heard people say that "how come citizens aren't all over and you only encounter stray random groups or just random individuals a little bit?" The chimera rounded most of them up and put them into camps as outlined in the game. Besides the rest are in hiding as shown the strays you find quivering behind a car or in a basement. Your character Tom Riley is an awsome character he is a 3rd generation nyc fireman on the search for his wife and daughter who uses his dead father's badass fire axe to slay chimera on the streets of nyc. You slash and smash chimera with touchscreen controls using an axe The controls are spectacular and easily the highlight of the game. It handles every bit as well as a console FPS and better than most. For being the frist dual analog FPS on a handheld and nailing the gameplay and controls making it feel seemless to any console FPS fan Nihilistic deserves respect and so does Insomniac for their help and input. Nobody can deny the controls are great and shooting down chimera ****, remember that fun thing that so many games neglect.WEAPON WHEEL, nobody can deny that the weapon wheel returning is awsome. IT has a variety of great guns some classics like the bullseye,auger,fareye,hedgehog grenade, the carbine and more. Weapons like a double barrel shotgun with a crossbow attached to it (yes it is as cool as it sounds) the bow part can shoot exploding arrows which you can increase the explosion size with grey tech upgrades as all the weapons in the game are massively customizable from scopes to bigger explosion radius to faster reloads to clip size to more unique upgrades each weapon has i think 6-8 upgrades if you find enough grey tech which is scattered in obscure areas. The game features front and back touchscreen controls which do not feel tacked on at all. They make the game more fun and are precise like touchscreen slashing your axe is great, touchscreen grenade controls and many secondary fire touchscreen controls. They even have a touchscreen control for reloading your arrows in the crossbow which works really well is simple to master and fun. Masterfully crafted controls all in all, huge boss fights on a dual analog HD FPS are you kidding me giant satisfying boss fights, fun multiplayer granted the maps are a little small it has all the current day perks of a console multiplayer obviously an xp leveling with weapon/ability and skin **** infected mode for multiplayer was borderline genius as well as getting infected through near and getting double xp, you play as chimera or soldiers in multiplayer and it is **** the game is easy to platinum if you beat the game you will likely be close to a platinum but you still have to go back and do a few more things, since when did people complain about a platinum being too easy? Or maybe you want the trophy setup like Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus for the Vita making it virtually impossible to platinum-or at least forcing over 150hrs of game time to platinum thanx ninja **** den but no thanx i can proudly say i platinumed Burning skies and im not mad about that. score 9/10RBS
Saying Burning Skies is a bit too linear for its own good would be a little bit unfair since the FPS genre has become synonymous with heavily scripted and action packed events. But that's exactly what is missing in Burning Skies: the action. [June 2012, p.84]
It is visually atrocious, interactively vapid and incomplete to a degree that a full retail price is an insult. It's tempting to buy this just to have something new on the system, but good things come to those that wait, and it's hard to imagine anything not being good compared to this mess.
Средненький, непродолжительный шутеров во вселенной Resistance. Самая слабая часть серии. Посредственная графика (на фоне киллзона), блеклые локации, незамысловатый геймплей "иди и стреляй", всего несколько типов врагов, банальнейший сюжет про спасение семьи. Некоторое разнообразие лишь вносит вооружение со своими альтернативными режимами и прокачкой. Финальный босс очень разочаровал простейшей тактикой его убийства и длительностью самой битвы. Понравилась полная русская локализация, кое-где были интересные записки. В целом, на разок сойдет.
I got Resistance pretty late - I just finished it a few days ago and I can safely say that even had I gotten it at launch I would have been unimpressed. This title would have been solid game - on the PS2. While the shooting mechanics were good the rest of the game is sorely behind the times. There were countless graphical glitches (characters randomly appearing, guns/enemies sticking through objects), a very underwhelming atmosphere, and a really bad story. I would not recommend this game to anyone unless they are a trophy **** a very easy platinum.
Seeing how the Vita lacks strong titles this game was rushed out and plain and simple dont look ready, im guessing that's why this game came of with sucha poor result. Gameplay is weird, graphics could have looked alot better, and the soundtrack just dies of from time to time, leaving you with nothing to hear then your own footsteps, it feels alot like a mid 90s FPS game.
SummaryAs New Jersey fire fighter and National Guardsman Tom Riley, you come face to face with the brutal Chimeran invasion force in this shooter built from the ground up for Vita. This latest installment in the franchise focuses on a new mission that parallels and complements the existing Resistance storyline.
