This game started off really fun and exciting. The graphic were great for the time, felt a bit cartoonist after a while though. Originally it looked like a whole lot of fun. But then the problems began.
Before I go into what the problem's were, I'm just going to say this is the 1st 1 in the series and I'm playing this game knowing this. I have the 2nd and 3rd quite high in my GameQ so maybe I'll change my opinion later on the series. This game however did some good things. The character Nathan Drake is funny....at first. His lolly gagging spirit is fun but with a tone this dark I expected a more subtle change which I didn't see. But overall I liked the story. Didn't overly love it but I did like it.
What really ruined this game for me was 2 things. Now again I liked it but that's why I'm giving it a 7 but towards the end I was so done with the game I only beat it because I wanted to know how it ended. I had it almost a month and though I've been really busy I was completely unmotivated to play this game.
Number 1 was the camera movement and controller layout. The PS3 wireless controller is the 1 I don't have. I have the cheap cord version from Game stop so that hurt's the player. Play it you'll know what I mean. The camera at time's I had no idea how to turn it properly and gave up on it.
Number 2...by far my biggest pet peeve with any game ...is when I shoot somebody in the head I expect them to die. I found myself shooting 20 bullets mostly more on just 1 guy. It was a fire 100 bullets at three guys then find ammo kind of game. It got old and it gold old quick. The puzzles got repetitive and didn't belong toward the end of the game.
I heard it was a good game. I'll still play it's 2 sequel's. But I was highly disappointed with this game. If anybody ask's if they try this game I'll respond with "Um Yeah Sure".
I got part 3 in a bundle so wanted to go back and play through this first and it's solid but is pretty easy on normal difficulty and is on rails for sure. 8 hours tops to beat unless you really need to get all the relics but I just like to play the game. I love the controls of this series except for the tilt controlling some things because I like to use a 3rd party controller but I got through the game without having tilt so not too bad. Overall I enjoyed the game.

It has great graphics for it's time and excellent voice acting. But i thought the combat and platforming was clunky and very frustrating at times. I'm not sure if i'd call the story good exactly, it didn't put me on the edge of my seat but it was enjoyable.
