Very Good

Almost Uncharted

This game is good, on the verge of being great. It plays virtually identical to the Uncharted series as far as the 3rd person gameplay/cutscene sequences, gunplay, and platforming. The graphics are great and the game plays very well. My problems with the game are the little things. First, yes, the voice acting is done very well, and the cutscenes are done right as well, however, aside from Lara Croft herself, there is not one other memorable character. Even the main "bad guy" of the game has little backstory told by books you gather and read through the game. One of the things I loved about the Uncharted games is all the characters you get to know and have feelings of attachment or hate towards. (Examples: Sully) I really couldn't tell you another characters name in this game other than Lara, a day after I had beaten it. Also, I thought the story was very simple. Virtually one story line for the whole game as opposed to Uncharted where you travel the world, go to different locations, different style tombs, etc. In conclusion, If you have played the Uncharted series and want more, check this out, but don't expect the humor, character development, or story that makes the Uncharted series what it is. This is a good first attempt for whoever made this game, and overall I am glad they made it. If anything, it gives the Uncharted Naughty Dog team some competition and maybe a couple ways they could tweak gameplay.
