Imagine taking the best elements of every indiana jones flick, mixed with the best parts of the tomb raider series of games... plus some great platforming & shooting action. This game is really incredible... fun... challenging... interesting & engaging. Voice acting is phenomenal, writing is pulpy but fun and lighthearted (VERY indiana jones-ish). The main characters are charming enough that you care what happens to them, but gritty and real enough that they don't come off as fake. My biggest complaint is the camera, which can be a little wonky, particularly at the most intense/critical moments - usually when using a vehicle and trying to shoot. The environments are amazing in their richness & detail, but are almost "too" perfect... a little more atmosphere would help everything be less sharp & bright (ie: more realistic) when they're in peripheral view or far away. Bear in mind I'm playing on an NTSC tv, not an HD display - so the detail could be much more pleasing on the eyes with a better tv. Targeting can be way too slow sometimes (turning while holding the target causes you to turn sometimes WAY Too slowly - even with the sensitivity turned way up). If you like treasure hunting or adventure stories - this is really worth checking out, despite the minor complaints I have with it.
Feels like an Indiana Jones Movie that you can interact with. I really like the strong storyline, It's the best I've seen in an action game ever. The self healing part is a must and I'm certainly happy ND put it in. The grenade throwing takes some getting used of. Since it requires the SIXAXIS to launch the grenades. I wish it had an auto lock on to the enemies for the easy setting. Because it is very difficult to spot them with all the lush forestry. Sometimes the game has a VERY SLOW period where I wanna fall asleep. I hope as the game goes on the frequency of attacks does increase so I don't fall asleep anymore. Other than that the graphics are spot on for a PS3 masterpiece. Just need to go BUY this game so I can play as much as possible. Definitely a Christmas list Must have.
