Resistance: Burning Skies Review | JPS

"When Resistance creators Insomniac Games decided to move on from the franchise, many fans were worried about the future of the series. Thankfully, Nihilistic Software has stepped in and developed a Resistance game made exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation Vita console." - JPS (PS Vita, Resistance: Burning Skies) 6.3/10

Yeah me too. I will generally play anything on a handheld, no matter how good or bad. For some odd reason I never minded bad games on handhelds.

Bad games are ok if they are on (sony) handheld? That's the spin we're going with? Brilliant.
Wish I'd had thought about that when bad Kinect games were released!! If only I had a time machine.

i gotta ask those of you who are complaining here about this developer making this game, did you also complain in the other two other articles that give it a good score?

my copy is already paid off, and i don't listen to reviewers since there not the ones spending my money. hell they all made Skyrim sound like the greatest game ever made, and even though i enjoyed the game its far from greatest game ever made. still a good game though.

in the end you people are smart enough to make up your own damn minds about what you want to buy and play instead of listening to some random persons opinion.

I like how you are so right!

thats what hapen when you throw your franchise to crap developers.

why the hell insomniac didnt develop this one?? or at least another talented studio from sonys stable?
sony needs to get some of their talents to develop games for the vita.

i mean seriously, Nihilistic Software? the people who developed conan and playstation move heroes?

Insomniac is busy with their new game and other, better developers are probably already making unannounced Vita games.

Insomniac said they won't be doing Resistance anymore
dark-hollow  +   1282d ago
fair enough, but out of all their studios and all the possible third party studios that they can outsource the game to, why pick Nihilistic Software while their track history of games is mediocre?

say whatever you like about resistance franchise, but i think it still one of sonys valuable franchises and they shouldnt just throw it to any average developer.

it deserves better...

I agree with you. I felt like it was a dumbass decision to throw the resistance franchise into crap hands known as Nihilistic. If they screwed this up, ima be pissed. I love resistance, and was really hoping this would turn out well.

Insomniac is busy with overstrike which is being published by EA.... *shudders* who knows what crazy business practices overstike will have.

Skipping Burning Skies though, im a bit worn out on shooters, so taking a break from them will do me some good.Plan on getting Gravity Rush though

Insomniac are done with Resistance, which is unfortunate.

Yeah, me too... mines already paid off, and I don't regret it one bit... Sterling Gave it a 2 out of 10, which to me, means it will be a great game.. alot of the games he's given low scores to ended up being great fun.. he just gave Dragon's Dogma a 7.5, and I'd say it's easily a 9.. he gave mario kart 7 a 5 and I'd say that was an 8 or 9... He gave NIER a low score and that game was great.. same thing with AC II.

In fact, alot of reviewers gave mario tennis open for 3DS low scores and I'm enjoying the hell outta it..

Reviews are only opinions, I'm a Resistance fan, I loved Retribution on PSP, and I'm sure I'll like Burning Skies... I can't wait for tomorrow.

So go for it... I got so much flak on the IGN review for telling people in the end its their own opinion that matters on the games they purchasse. Since I got mostly disagrees I guess reviews do make people buy games

Never got into resistance, I loved insomniac from rachet and clank... hope one day another will come

Was on the fence about this. Not really an fps guy as far as being on consoles but the idea of one being truly portable had me intrigued.
Still pumped for Gravity Rush and I'm still playing the hell out of Disgaea. Hoping for some sweet announcements at E3.

I am still getting it. Love the series too much and I am easy to please =)
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1282d ago
:/ Not in love with these reviews...

Nihilistic isn't exactly the best developer in the world though.
StraightPath  +   1282d ago
People will buy this horse poo?
kikizoo  +   1282d ago
Say the frustrated xfanboytrollz in denial, and without good games since years...

it's a 6,3 here, but we have seen a 9 today, so wait and see (not you straighpath, you can't, you don't have the 2 best hardware this gen)
MasterCornholio  +   1281d ago
Just because a game doesn't sell well doesn't mean it's bad. Like Gravity Rush example. It's a fantastic game but due to it being a new franchise and being an extremely innovative title some people will be afraid to purchase it because they will not know what to expect from it. Of course I'm talking about the typical gamer who doesn't do any research on games before deciding whether to buy them or not.

I don't know about this game in particular but the Resistance series has allowed gotten hate for absolutely no reason. It was a game with no problems with aiming, movement or glitches. It had good enemies, weapons, a hell of a lot better story then most shooters, a health system in R1 that was not cheap like many games are, awesome MP. They were great games that got good scores and people treated them like $hit. And when you ask anyone why they hated it they come up with some dumb reason that makes no sense.

I am probably the biggest Resistance fan on this website, don't believe me? Check out my youtube channel.
I have had excellent history with the Resistance games, but when I found out that Nhilistic was developing this game, I was a little anxious.

The game in my opinion will not be bad, but definitely NOT as polished as an Insomniac title.
izumo_lee  +   1282d ago
Like i said in previous posts i do not know if these scores are justified. I wanna see Nihilistic take another crack at this series on the Vita, if that game is just as bad/mediocre than i can not argue with these scores.

I always remind myself that these are first gen vita games so these games will only get better once developers learn the system more...hopefully.
