Set in the weeks after "Resistance: Fall of Man," Resistance: Retribution follows the story of former British Marine James Grayson. After a personal tragedy - he is forced to kill his own brother inside a Chimeran conversion centre - Grayson goes on a vendetta to destroy every conversion centre he can find. Eventually Grayson learns that his efforts have been futile... in Western Europe the Chimera have evolved a new method of converting humans to aliens. The European resistance - the Maquis - enlist Grayson's help, and he joins Cartwright and Parker in Operation Overstrike. The war to retake the European continent has begun.

     Wow. There must be a God.

    This is amazing. For the system, the graphics are amazing, just amazing. But the whole look feels pretty similar to Syphon Filter:Dark Mirror, things like the crosshair when its aimed at at a friend, the characters themselves, and the way bodies fling when theres an explosion. For this price, its definatley worth it, especially if you want an amazing fps for the PSP. If games like this keep coming out, students everywhere will fail everything, moreso than now, employees will stay at home, and spouses will have a secret affair with this system. Its that good. Its that dangerous =P

     best shooter

    resistance retribution is an essential game for any psp owner.if you are not sure which shooter to buy for the psp this would be that one that you should choose.it is much better that resistance fall of man.it has 22 levels of about 20-40 minutes; depending on how good you are.there is extra content like intels,infected mode and resistance retribution plus.this is one of the best games of the psp.

     The best PSP shooter to date

    Like the other reviewers on here, I'd downloaded the demo and was very impressed with it - sure it was never going to be as good as anything on the PS3 but it comes pretty damn close imo.

    I actually paid a few quid more to download it from the PSN network as I was too impatient to wait for it to arrive properly and so I'm not certain if the minor niggles I've found with the game are the same on the UMD version.

    The main gripe is the cut-scenes - they are fairly jerky when played from the memory stick - I dont know if this is because of the hardware limitations of the memory stick or just the game in general, but that's pretty much the only complaint I've got with the game.

    Graphically it's brilliant for a handheld (I think so anyway) - enemies are detailed and there are some very well done large boss-type enemies. There's the ability to command a mech at certain points of the game and this serves as a nice break from the standard running and gunning.

    The game is pretty hard in places - especially in areas with little cover - you'll find you'll still get hit even when behind a small wall - and you will die a lot in this game - but perseverance pays off in the end.

    Sound is great too with suitably dramatic scores which changes with the action - no complaints in this department either.

    All in all - I'm happy with the game - I've been playing if fairly regularly for about a week now (yes - it can be THAT hard!) and I'm fairly sure I'm close to finishing it - but even so, it's still got great value for money with it's completion time. For £17.99 this game is an unbelievable bargain - all I can say is buy it now or you'll regret it!

    I have got the demo for this game and it reminds me of Resistance FOM and 2 but on a lower scale. The game is simular in some ways; the guns are the same, it has the Narator from RFOM, and the types of Chimera are the same. Differences are; its in third-person (i think its better for PSP), its a different person, and more. This is a great game for PSP and they come around that often anymore. A diffinate buy.

     You cannot Resist - resistance is futile !!
