If all this seems like too much effort to unlock the weapons there are several further options to unlock the goodies on offer. Put Resistance 2 in your PS3, go into the options and select connect PSP. From here you can select Infect Resistance: Retribution and activiate Resistance: Retribution Plus. Obviously the PSP needs to be plugged into the Ps3 when you do this, however it offers some extras in the PSP game.

One of them changes everything about James Grayson. Rather than being a standard tough guy human on the rampage to avenge his dead brother he is infected with the same virus Nathan Hale struggles with on the PS3 version of Resistance. He can now breathe underwater and can regenerate his health meter but he also gets a Spectre suits like Hale’s from Resistance 2 as well as the magnum gun we all long to possess. This change only lasts as long as Retribution is played for after the infection, so if you quit the game to the XMB and restart it all returns to normal. Even more impressive is the fact that if you play sections of the game with an infected player then the dialogue changes and his eyes turn yellow. On a cool scale of 10, this rates 11.

Activating Resistance: Retribution Plus is another cool option that has been circulating on the news boards for a while. When you select this option from the R2 menu with Retribution plugged into the Ps3 you transfer your PS3 controller to the PSP. So you can control the action on the PSP with the Sixaxis or Dualshock 3 ! The controls carry over button for button except you can now use the second analog stick to control Grayson’s POV rather than the PSP’s face buttons. The big change however is that this method of control eliminates the need for the Aim Assist box to be used for aiming (it disappears). Believe it or not, while this sounds easier, it actually makes the game more difficult as although the PS3 controller is great, it doesn’t really translate perfectly to the handheld console. That said options such as selecting weapons are now handled back and forward by the shoulder buttons rather than one way with the PSP built in controls.

Online options for the game are brilliant and the community is thriving. The structure is set up for eight player matches (four people v four people) in one of five modes. There are clans, voice chat, 12 ranks to reach as well as a friends list, unranked matches and much more. There are 22 medals for example online each with gold, silver and bronze ratings, these are also attached to your profile so that everyone can see how much you rock if you managed to get 300+ kills with a pistol.

All in all, the PSP online facet of Resistance Retribution is stunning in all regards and it as good as anything I have experienced with the PS3 community. Hell you can even taunt fallen foes to rub their face in it! If you progress further then you get access to more insulting dialogue as well as dances over their dead bodies to add more salt to the wounds. Equally as important you can revive downed teammates by pushing downing on the D pad nearby.

In relation to the five modes most of them are well known. Team Deathmatch an Capture the Flag for example are standard modes while Free For All is basically a regular Deathmatch mode. There are two modes however which deserve some more explanation. Containment is a mode to allow two squads to battle in an environment while capturing and holding coolant nodes for as long as possible. Assimilation starts with a single player in the Cloven team while everyone else joins the Maquis side. It is up to the Cloven player to kill, and assimilate players into the Cloven side. This is a mega mode which is good if you pit the best player as the Cloven guy against everyone else.

Retribution has a total of five Multiplayer maps that are reminiscent of the maps from the single player campaign. They all are well designed and very suited to a strong multiplayer experience. Retribution has some great additional options, there are 60 clan patches to select from and you can leave messages for all your clan buddies as well as tracking stats on myresistance.net. You can even import PSN friends who have played Retribution which is useful.

The graphics are perfectly fine although there are times when the game shudders with all the action onscreen. They aren’t bad, but are quite reminiscent of Syphon Filter with slightly updated environmental detail and characterisations.

The audio is much stronger with some fantastic explosions and ambient sound effects with a pumping score to set the tone as you do battle with the enemy. Playing through a good pair of headphones does the experience justice as there are plenty of bass deep explosions to rock your ears.

Resistance Retribution is without a doubt my favourite game on the Playstation portable. It is the most rounded package to hit the platform and has no glaring weaknesses to report which is rare on this rather fading platform. The storyline is strong and engaging and the main character endears you to want to do well. Multiplayer is fantastic and is sure to drive a lot of gamers online to play with their buddies. Highly recommended to anyone with a pulse and hopefully this is a sign of things to come this year for the PSP.
