A side-story to the Playstation 3 series, Resistance, has come to the PSP. Now, I'm a little scared when I hear that someone's attempting to bring an action-shooting game to a handheld. Here's why: After playing these shooters on PCs and Consoles for years, few games figure out how to make precise controls work while you're on-the-go. Sony actually pulled it off.
The assisted aiming in Resistance: Retribution hits that happy middle ground between helping you hit a target without babying you. You still have to point your gun the right direction (doy). However, you need to get within an aiming viewcone. Need to zoom in for a more precise shot? You can toggle in a little closer for an over-the-shoulder view.
It's a parallel story that runs alongside the other games to give you a deeper look at the world. Instead of playing in the first-person perspective, the camera sits over your shoulder as you blast your way through a war-torn, monster-filled Europe. Oh, and if you spot any other mobile players rocking a PSP and this game, you can try out some of the cool multiplayer matches built into the game as well. (You can play others locally or over a Wi-Fi connection).
