I LOVED UC2, so I'm not sure what went wrong here. Yes the graphics are amazing (especially 3D - wow!), and there are some amazing set pieces.
But those set pieces are really only 5 minutes here and there, and in between is a LOT of gun play just ruined it for me. Wave after wave of the same 3-4 types of enemies just bored the heck out of me and got extremely repetitive. Especially the armored ones that are practically immune to bullets. Not to mention the controls were just lacking the "tightness" to easily dispatch of them. I died more times than I can count because I was stuck on cover, or was stuck in a fight animation with a grenade by me.
I eventually did something I NEVER do - I put the game on easy (This from a guy who beat Gears 2 on Insane difficulty solo). I had a lot more fun with it after that. It really cut down on the cheap deaths.
Also, the game expects YOU to figure out what you should do far too often. I'm up for a challenge and puzzles, but when (for example) I have to STAND on the right spot just to LOOK at the right spot and am not given a clue as that I needed to do that until the "hey idiot do this" hint, it just gets frustrating after a while.
I'm not saying it's not a good game, because it is. I just think it could have been so much better. I finished the campaign because it is visually stunning and has a decent story, but more that anything I was simply relieved when it was over.
While I was playing throughout this game and it was so amazing!! Because of the new combat and throwback the grenades also the best visuals!!! So I give this game 10/10 for being perfection. And I am very proud of NAUGHTYDOG did overdid themselves for this game to make us proud!!! So GOTY for Uncharted 3!!!
