Resistance: Burning Skies Review

 

Let's get it out of the way now...

FPS - Frames Per Second; Twin analog sticks; Breathless campaign; On a handheld

Low-budget; That final boss; Multiplayer connection issues

Resistance: Burning Skies is an excellent proof of concept. It is the tech demo that shows third-party publishers that first-person shooters can be achieved on the Vita hardware. It is by no means a crowning achievement. Instead, Nihilistic have opened...

Resistance: Burning Skies Review

 

The traditionally taut action of the Resistance series goes disappointingly slack in Burning Skies.

Solid competitive multiplayer ; Interesting implementation of touch controls

Struggles to replicate the combat intensity of previous games in the series ; Serious connection issues deny access to multiplayer ; Campaign story and characters are uninteresting ; Dull visuals

Technical issues may abate, but this entry in the Resistance series still falls well short of its pedigree. Burning Skies leaves little doubt that the Vita is a comfortable home for first-person shooters, but the platform's first FPS is disappointingly...

The Resistance franchise debuts on the PlayStation Vita, but does it deserve your money?

Resistance: Burning Skies has the honor of being the first true twin-stick FPS on a handheld, but it doesn't do much with it. The story here is forgettable, the action is formulaic, and the multiplayer is simplistic. If first-person action is your...

For a long time, Sony has wanted to bring the console experience to handheld devices, and the PlayStation Vita represents its most successful attempt to date, armed as it is with impressive visual capabilities and a wealth of control options....

If, like me, you've been waiting to see how a first-person shooter feels on the Vita, then I can say that this game proves the potential of the genre. However, if you'd like your first Vita FPS to actually be good, then wait for something else, because...

The Resistance franchise comes to the Vita, and the results are not what you expected.

Solid shooting controls ; Audio is excellent

Feels highly unpolished ; Bland firefights ; Online feels dismissive ; Narrative falls flat

Resistance: Burning Skies

 

Gamers take control of Staten Island firefighter and National Guardsman Tom Riley as he tries to defend New York from the August 15, 1951, Chimeran invasion in Resistance: Burning Skies. Nihilistic Software (Conan, PlayStation Move Heroes) assumes the dev

Resistance is usually futile; evidently not, in Tom Riley's case, as he kicks Chimera ass under Burning Skies

Overall, Resistance: Burning Skies is a solid addition to the series. Its story unfolds at a good pace and looks great on the Vita. There's only one thing missing: the skies were never burning! Maybe a bit dark in places, but never burning. At some...

Resistance: Burning Skies should have been braver and bolder.

Proves FPS can work on handheld ; Varied, unique arsenal

Uninspiring environments ; Poor story, boring multiplayer

I wish Resistance: Burning Skies had been braver and bolder. It's the first fully-fledged FPS on the Vita, and it has all those brilliant guns, but it doesn't strut around like Vita's first-person saviour. It's a reserved, almost lazy attempt, and...

Resistance: Burning Skies Review: Touchscreen, not twin sticks, shine in Vitas first FPS

 

After three Resistance games on PS3 you might think you've seen every conceivable way of mortally juicing the six-eyed mutant swarm that is the Chimera. You've minced them with exploding magnum shells, dissolved them with erupting hedgehog grenades and...

Not a showcase for Vita's visual powers, but hard proof it can handle fully-fledged first-person shooters - another solidly rousing slice of Resistance.
