Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's truly a shame that Resistance: Burning Skies has been under fire in many reviews. Now, everyone's allowed to have their opinion, even though I strongly disagree with it and find some scores to be way off. I'll just say that I can't find anything about this game that'd put it on par with some of the worst games out there. Granted, it's not a perfect gaming product and has its fair share of issues, but none of these really harm the overwhelmingly great experience. This is a very good FPS for the Vita. Even if it were on console, I'd still enjoy it just as much.

Firstly, the presentation is pretty much great. There are some drawbacks such as lousy gun sounds and some weak texture detail in spots, but these two things don't harm the game much at all. The graphics are overall very nice, with some nicely detailed gun models, solid character models for lead characters, an impressive soundtrack, etc. The story is also one of my favorites in the Resistance franchise.

Secondly, the gameplay is superb. Dual analogs make this a buttery smooth FPS on the go. I didn't know how I'd feel about the touch controls, but I think most of them work well and make sense since you have two shoulder buttons on the Vita instead of four.

Thirdly, it's just a fun game that has a good story and great gameplay. An odd little glitch or framerate drop is ultimately just a small drawback and not a game killer.

Resistance: Burning Skies deserves your attention if you're a Vita owner looking for the next good game to spend your spare time on.

4.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hate... July 29, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Resistance: Burning Skies was the first game I got for my Vita. I'm no super veteran when it comes to multiplayer, so I'll be writing primarily about the single player campaign. I've played the PS3 trilogy and Retribution and in my eyes, Burning Skies was a system seller. However, after reading scores of negative reviews (especially IGN) I was a little worried. At best I figured the game could be a fun throw away title that could wet my appetite for more FPS's on the system. What I ended up with was probably the most fun entry in the series.
It's hard to talk about fun and Resistance in the same sentence. Resistance, as a series, is a bit of a downer, to say the least. But what's always fun about the series are the crazy weapons, cool creatures, and the 50's war torn landscape. All of that is here in spades. In addition, it introduces what may be my favorite weapon in the series, The Mule. This is a double barrel shot gun with a napalm shooting crossbow attached to it. The game also gives us the fire axe, which is a cool new way to perform melee kills.
One gripe a lot of reviews had was the use of the Vita's touchscreen, says that the feature feels forced or shoehorned in. These features are really what made the gameplay stand out for me above the rest of the series. All secondary fire, grenades, and the fire axe are assigned to touch screen controls. Never has tagging a Chimera or throwing a grenade been more fulfilling then when you're tapping the enemy you want to tag or swiping your finger where you want the grenade to go. These controls really kept me in the game and kept me in the headspace of Tom Riley.
Which brings me to another point, and that's the character of Riley, himself. I love that we're controlling a firefighter this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Portable FPS June 2, 2012
By SRITT3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Lots of fun. Buy it, Play it, Trade it. Enjoy it.

I wasn't expecting much from the first generation of games released for the vita or any console. Most of the release titles for the vita have been very entertaining and Resistance: Burning Skies scratches that FPS itch nicely.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent first try for a Vita FPS. October 29, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Resistance: Burning Skies, I bought this game because I wanted a fully featured, dual analog, portable shooter. That is not what I got. This game is not bad, but it is not truly good either.

The campaign is fine. It gets the job done. It doesn't excel at story or voice acting, but it doesn't bug you either. To put it simply, it drives you through the game, but you never actually care about it. The levels are decently set up. The enviroments are varried.
The gameplay is decent, if not a little generic. Nothing you havent seen before.
The weapons have a decent variety, although there aren't that many of them. And they will be given to you as you need the throughout the game.
The enemy AI is very stupid, and they will often get stuck on walls trying to get to you.
The graphics are okay, although the vita is capable of more. It often seems prone to muddy textures and graphical glitches.
the multiplayer couldve been able to save this game from overall averageness, but it doesn't do that at all. The multiplayer sweet is small and is already low in players. there arent very many game modes, and in my experience it can be really hard to get a match going. If you buy it used dont even bother with the online pass unless your a trophy completionist.
The game is incredibly easy, even on hard mode, The if you try( possibly even if you dont) You will get most of the trophies in a single playthrough, theres not much replay value( theres a few documents lying around but they feel pointless.)
all in all, the game proves that a portable fps can work, and is fun at times, but overall it is probably a pass for most. If it was a console game i would have given it even less stars. If your curious to see how an fps handles on the vita, give it a shot. this games is deffinatly a sign of good things to come.
