Excerpt: If I had to list a number of development studios that make the best PSP titles, Sony Bend would undoubtedly be around the top of that list. These are the guys who took the smoldering ashes of the Syphon Filter series and summoned a phoenix from them. The Oregon-based studio recently accepted a different challenge - to craft a handheld installment of the Resistance series.
Conclusion: Resistance Retribution est un jeu dont on est loin d'être satisfait. Cela pourrait faire office de conclusion définitive. Mais cela ne suffirait pas à l'expliquer. Et pour digresser quelque peu, on a surtout regretté la linéarité confondante de ce jeu, le simplisme de son gameplay, bien que quelques passages soient réellement ardus ainsi que la hollywoodisation extrême et navrante. C'est beaucoup de reproches surtout pour un seul jeu.
Pros: Graphiquement réussi, Armes et munitions, Quelques uns des boss
Cons: Répétitif, Assisté à mort, Gameplay assez vide
Excerpt: Retribution stands as a bridging story between the first and second Resistance titles, following the destruction of the London fortress and the expulsion of the Chimera threat from old Blighty, it tells the story of the liberation of Europe at the hands of the Allied command and the French Maquis. Crossing through Belgium? France and Germany. Trying to root out the source of the fresh Chimera troops and destroy it.
Summary: With “as good as it gets” controls, repetitive gameplay, and a barebones story,
doesn’t do much to distinguish itself from better games on the PSP. You certainly can’t call the action “bad,” and the weapons in particular are a lot of fun to use, but it just all comes off as fairly average. All in all,
is a decent shooter, but it’s hard to recommend it to anyone other than hardcore fans of the series.
Conclusion: Concept: This side story features a strong narrative, exciting run-and-gun gameplay, and a complete multiplayer experience. Is it as good as the console series? Absolutely
Graphics: No expenses were spared in the CG cutscenes, character models, or environments, making it one of the PSP's graphical darlings
Sound: Character banter is constant, and the energetic score blends perfectly with the frantic firefights
Playability: A hassle-free experience that makes good use of...
Violent, portable third-person shooter for adults only.
Common Sense Media
20 September 2009
Summary: Parents need to know that this is violent third-person shooter meant for adults only. The protagonist uses a large arsenal of weapons to kill enemies, including assault rifles, rocket launchers, grenades and shotguns. Foes spew blood after getting shot, while one particular creature's head explodes after attacks. There are scenes with partial nudity. The game is also playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend for children under the age of 12.
Excerpt: One year ago the PSP received God of War: Chains of Olympus, arguably the best action game to grace Sony's handheld to date. It worked because it managed to bring to the PSP the series' trademark spectacular visuals and fluid controls. Now it's the turn of the newer PlayStation blockbuster series Resistance. With two PS3 games in the bag and a loyal fanbase, is Resistance Retribution the handheld shooter you've been waiting for? Well, it is and it isn't.
Excerpt: Listen up, game designers – I may not speak for everyone, but as a whole, gamers are sick to death of the badass, wise-cracking anti-hero. Let's face it; the concept gained popularity in the 80's which, if you're keeping track, is coming up on thirty years ago… I'd wager that some of the folks who end up reading this weren't even born yet!
Summary: Retribution protagonist James Grayson is a talkative and brash counter to the solemn Nathan Hale. I have no problem with this change; it's Grayson's need for 1990s-style health packs and bland pop-up-and-shoot gameplay that brings this title down. Thankfully high production values, mech sequences, and plenty of large-scale boss battles help even things out. If you own Resistance 2, definitely use it to ''infect'' your PSP and earn regenerative health and a sweet magnum.
