The Resistance franchise has had an up and down time over the past few years. Tagging along with the launch of the PS3, the first game became one of the most anticipated and successful titles of the launch period. Last year the second next-gen game emerged to mixed comments. And to me that mixed impression was justified.
Now we have the portable version looking to restore the series to its former self and while the PSP game does have problems, it is one of the better titles on the system because the developers have worked with the limitations of the system, rather than try to overcome them.
Resistance Retribution fills in the storyline between the first and second PlayStation 3 games. You play as James Greyson, a British soldier, sentenced to death after he abandoned his unit due to the infection and subsequent death of his brother during the war with the Chimera. After the Chimera invades Europe and advances rapidly, Greyson is given a pardon and asked to fight with the French resistance teams. While the storyline is nothing to write home about it, definitely has its moments.
