You are the Resistance on PlayStation Vita.

Set in a brutal, alternate 1950s universe, the Chimera attack on America has just begun. New Jersey firefighter Tom Riley, responds to a routine 911 call and comes face-to-face with the brutal Chimera in the initial days of their invasion on the east Coast of the US. He is separated from his wife and daughter and takes up arms against the Chimera to find them.
Being a firefighter, Riley can never stand idly by when people are in peril and there are several moments in the game where the player will be faced with situations where they can perform selfless acts of bravery in order to rescue people from the Chimeran hoard.

Basically I brought my vita on release eagerly awaiting the release of a fps. And this hasn't disappointed me at all however there are a few words of warning....

The story is crazily short as iv managed to finish it twice within a day (dedicated I know), and the online multiplayer feels a little thin, so don't expect anything overly engaging like halo/kill zone/mw3. Although saying that the story is good, action and graphics are awesome. Weapons have alt fire options which involve the use of the touch screen and multiplayer is very good if you want to pick up and play for 10 to 20 mins at a time.

For anyone who likes there fps games and have a vita

 I enjoyed it

This isn't a full review of Resistance Burning Skies as I haven't finished the campaign or tried the online yet. But I am a few levels into the single player now and feel its enough for a good review.

Anyway let me start by saying I am a big PS3 Resistance fan so I may be a bit biased but honestly I actually really enjoyed Resistance BS! - and do not understand the hate.

For starters I see a lot of reviews complaining particularly about the touch screen controls. But they don't bother me as I have seen much worse on iPad! (yet those iPad games somehow manage to get glowing reviews?!) yes dragging and dropping your grenades is annoying but you don't need to go through all that you just need to aim above your enemy and tap the grenade icon once to throw a grenade accurately at your target! Other than that I've only so far seen the touch screen involved with using your weapons secondary fire which is occasionally frustrating in the heat of battle (when spreading 2 fingers out to throw out a shield yes that does slow down the action a bit) but its a one time thing. Personally I found doing the puzzles in Uncharted with touch screen more irritating!.

Moving onto the second big complaint: the graphics. I don't know what game the critics have been playing but I have yet to see my vita struggle in the heat of battle. Yes the environments are not as pretty as Uncharted (it's altogether a bit too grey I reckon) but the explosions and fire fights hold up really well!.

Although I haven't yet played the online side of the game I am looking forward to giving its weapons as good go as I've been really impressed with them in the SP Campaign! There's a wonderful variation And you always seem to be unlocking more! And when you get a new weapon you'll be desperate to see what new secondary fire the weapon holds! From crossbows napalm to the auger and it's shield deployment every weapon holds and exciting new secondary fire mode!

One of the other main aspects of the Resistance series has always been the boss battles and Burning Skies is no different! Don't worry I won't spoil anything for you but you can be sure there's some big battles to look forward to!

Finally in terms of length I'd guess Burning Skies has a good sized campaign! Longer than you're average shooter anyway ;) I suppose the lack of Uncharted-like collectables hunting means the single player has little replay value but then you've always got the online and it's unlock system (I keep hearing so much about!).

To sum up my review: Resistance Burning Skies isn't going to set the shooter genre alight but it is a revelation for handheld gaming and shows good signs for things to come!
Resistance BS = 8.5 / 10
