Resistance: Retribution (PSP)

 

Resistance: Retribution is the first portable outing for Sony's grim alternate-history franchise. The Resistance series, like many other shooters, has thrived on the dual analog-stick controller of the PlayStation 3, and at first glance the leap to the...

Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure

Resistance: Retribution

 

It's difficult to think of a better way to utilise the capabilities of a handheld device such as the PSP than to bridge a storyline gap between two previously released?home console titles. Those who have tackled and conquered previous iterations are...

A superb addition to the PSP library, this game is a must for fans of action-packed shooters that really give you a challenge.

PSP Game Review: Resistance Retribution

 

An intense and epic third-person shooter that is undoubtedly a Game of the Year candidate.

Resistance: Retribution Sony PSP Review

 

In this sub-chapter of the series, you play as Grayson, a British soldier jailed for turning on his squad while battling the Chimera (he has his reasons). Soon after his incarceration, he's called upon to help wipe out the aliens. He's up for the job,...

High-quality graphics and audio, lots of action, outstanding single and multiplayer components, Resistance 2 connectivity

No second analog stick, no co-op mode, needs more Resistance 2 weapons

Sony Bend could've easily designed Resistance: Retribution in the same mold as Insomniac's successful PlayStation 3 shoot-em-ups, using a first-person perspective and putting you back in the shoes of troubled soldier Nathan Hale. Instead, it opted for...

Bringing the fight home... or wherever's convenient.

Graphics are absolutely gorgeous; Nice assortment of weaponry; plenty of ammo; Environment and fights feel epic

Face buttons do not equal analog stick; Not showing enough of the battlefield

Resistance: Retribution Review

 

The fight against the Chimera continues in Sony Bend's serviceable shooter.

Gameplay adapts better to PSP than many other shooters; presentation and art motif evokes Resistance: Fall of Man

Hokey dialogue and awful voice acting; serviceable but forgettable multiplayer; occasionally sparse checkpoints

The improvement stems from some setpieces in the vein of Insomniac's Resistance games. One particular battle that stands out is against an Angel, one of the worst Chimera monsters that Nathan Hale faced in the first game, Fall of Man. Here, it's nasty,...

Resistance: Retribution Review

 

It's unlikely to find a first-party developer that boasts two superb first-person shooter franchises in their portfolio. When Sony launched the PS3 with Resistance, it also launched an all new brand that many knew would see sequels and spin-offs. Much...

Ultimately, Resistance Retribution is a great first effort, which is largely marred by a limitation of the PSP itself and not necessarily a fault of the game's design. If you can get over the controls and really get used to them, you'll find, what is...

Retribution is at hand, and PSP owners should buy it asap.

Resistance: Retribution

 

Control issues hamper the best PSP shooter to date

Easy to get to grips with ; Full of memorable shooty moments ; Creative weaponry

Dodgy, superfluous swimming bits ; Controls don't work well on handheld ; Cover system a bit unreliable

If you look beyond the faults, Retribution is a perfectly pitched, thrilling action game. It is the finest shooter on PSP, but this accolade isn’t as prestigious as it might be because Sony's handheld is a hostile place for first and third-person...
