The premier launch title for the PlayStation 3, Resistance: Fall of Man was a great FPS title that created a solid franchise with some truly great story elements. Hot on the heels of the big reveal of the game's upcoming sequel, Resistance 2, Sony's Bend Studio has announced the development of a PSP entry to the franchise, Resistance: Retribution. A third-person action-adventure title that bridges the gap between Resistance: Fall of Man and the upcoming sequel, Retribution is showing some great progress, in terms of action and atmosphere. Look for it to launch in Spring 2009.
Retribution puts you in control of a soldier named James Grayson, a man who had to kill his own brother after he was found partially converted at a Chimera conversion center. This sends him on a personal vendetta quest, as he goes on a mission to destroy every conversion center that he can. Unfortunately, this gets him in trouble with the military for desertion, for which he gets sentenced to die. However, a French resistance group known as The Maquis gets him out to come and work with them on their mission to take out conversion centers and so begins the adventure.
