The game is just down right fun to play and with an amazing story to back it all up. The game will grab you and pull you in, in the first five minutes...The Uncharted of the 360! Don't even think about it, just get it and play.
Campaign was great, Lara never looked so believable for an origin story. characters are ok the voice acting isnt too attractive except Lara. Combat is good, wish they put more options in melee( i dont count the finishers) good variety in objectives. Multiplayer feels like uncharted, not a bad thing but with that kind of gameplay it suffers due to sheer size of the maps. they are just too small, but environment effects make it bit more interesting. 4 modes, team deathmatch and free for all are dull, the objective modes shine well. maps seem a bit off in the balance but its nothing too serious. Collectibles keep you coming back to the campaign. After you kill everyone on the island it gets a bit lonely, it would be cool if they added random wolf spawns when exploring the jungles. But it just feels like an empty island...very empty.

This is one of the few games I've played where the controls are so fluid and responsive. The action comes in either heavy or light but the bow is silent and fast Love the flaming arrows that light up the enemy into a ball of fire. Puzzles vary from very easy to difficult sometime a little to cute as in timing of action. Acting is excellent and visual environment doesn't glitch so lots of experienced testing was done. I'm not really good at close combat so performing the duck an roll evasion at the right time was critical in defeating armored opponents. Overall I found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable gaming experience
