For: PS Vita

It seems that the PS Vita game Resistance: Burning Skies may well be the last entry in the series, if recent comments from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe are anything to go by.

Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine, online producer for SCEE Daniel Brooke said that there were no "definite plans" for any more of the alternative history sci-fi shooter.

Insomniac Games's Resistance began life as a PS3 launch game exclusive to the platform, and spawned two sequels before Nihilistic Software was handed development duties for the recently released Burning Skies PS Vita spin-off.

Resistance: Burning Skies managed to earn itself a Pocket Gamer Bronze Award for being the first FPS game to actually work well on handhelds, although we weren't entirely blown away by the title's combat.

Resistance: FOM and Resistance 3 were very smart, well dtructured games with great stories- I'm not a huge fan of Resistance 2 though. Burning skies wasn't good enough to be the platform torch bearer for Vita. And that's what it was supposed to be, it was the game that should have had Vitas flying from the shelves. Unfortunately it was at best an average game, that niether lived up to it's hype or the series of games before it.

Had it been more polished it could have fared better, but in places it was like playing a Gameloft game. I hope it's not the end of the series- it's probably my favourite exclusive, and I hope it ends up in better hands than Nihilistic.

Burning Skies wasn't as bad as people say but it just wasn't anything special either. Its worth playing just not worth playing a second time

'Tis a shame, but the series never seemed to generate the audience that its pedigree (at least on console, can't speak for Burning Skies yet) would suggest it deserved. R1, 2 and 3 were excellent, but looks like they just weren't mass-market and cliched enough to make it in today's gaming market.
