naughtdog made a good game but i honestly liked the uncharted series this was very different from them and i didn't really enjoy the plot and had a hard time figuring out where to go next cuz the game never really prompted u on it and that really annoyed me. if u played the uncharted games play those cuz they r just way better and more of my type of game series. this game involved more of the smuggling type thing not treasure hunting.
After all the hype surrounding this game, I expected more. The story was ok, but the gameplay really bored me, and I just couldn't get in to the game. Returned without even finishing...another Gamefly let down!
I must first say that I was hesitant to even play this game because of the developer Naughty Dog, however after playing this game I will go on record as saying this is one of my newest favorite titles.
Though it is lacking a little in the story and creation department the wide open maps and stealth aspects make you sit on the edge of your seat at all times.
The one thing I would recommend is to have some headphones when you play or play when you,re alone with the TV volume up, sound is so important in this game.
Visually the in game and cut scene graphics do not change much so it keeps you involved in playing for a long time.
On the other hand i would have liked a few more options on the weapon upgrades and maybe even a few more combat weapons. The same can go for item slots and backpack space, just a couple more would have made it an entirely different game.
Now that my fan comments are done time for the critic. All in all this game gets high marks for visuals, environment, skill and play-ability but does lose a couple in combat and content (DLC is not included so it will not be judged). So I award this game a 9.3 overall.
If someone asks what games they should play, this one will be on that list, so give it a try, never know you may be like me and end up liking it.
