I never thought I would get my hands on one of my favorite franchises on the Vita, but it’s a letdown that the developers are amongst my least favorite. Yes, playing a first-person shooter on a handheld console is tremendously awesome, but I wish the developers were Insomniac Games. Resistance: Burning Skies is the only first-person shooter on the Playstation Vita, with that said, Nihilistic manages to disappoint once again. Their track record has dramatically gone down the drain since Conan, and it’s a shame Sony continuously associates with developers that bring negativity to their platform. Nihilistic tried resurrecting the Resistance series; instead, they gave future Resistance titles a bad name."
