4.0 out of 5 stars Resistance: Burning Skies has been a victim of unjustified hatred, May 29, 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Resistance: Burning Skies - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
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

microsoft or someone else must be paying haters to come out of the woodwork to bash this thing, so that the popularity of this portable FPS never takes off.

I'm on the last stage and I've enjoyed it thus far.

edit June 6, 2012: I was able to get into MP for the first time yesterday, it was a blast. It's a bit like COD's hardcore mode, where there is no radar and the only indicators of enemy position on-screen are where you teammates get killed. Very intense fun!

I haven't seen all the maps, but they seem to have some nice circularity.

Unjustified, The multiplayer is completely broken right now...the first patch only made things worse. Sure the game has potential but for now the game is broken and people are mad about it, how is that not justified? If you are happy everyone else should be right?

I couldn't agree more, this game has received a lot of unjustified hate. I played the demo and loved every minute of it. Sure, it wasn't perfect, but it achieved the best thing a game could possible achieve that a lot of these critically acclaimed games fail to achieve: it was simply fun to play.

I have no idea why so many people are hating on a game that is this fun to play. I had a lot more fun playing this than anything I have played on my 3DS so far. Criminally underrated game.

So far I have really enjoyed the game. I don't understand why people bash it so much

i think the hate is a little unjustified, the game is enjoyable, but the enemy ai is weak, the freindly ai is completely useless, and some people consider the touch screen things gimmicky.
they also commented on the very uninspired level design
