Boring story, horrible combat and forced gimmicks.

I love the first two Uncharted on the PS3, but this one is not in their league. Golden Abyss overuses and forces you to take your hands off the Vita to use the awkward touchscreen, and it does it A LOT.
The story is just a bland been there done that story that is nowhere near on par with the PS3 version. It felt like waste of time. The voice acting is fantastic though.
The shooting is the worst thing in the game. It is so horrible that I can't even explain it in words, you'd have to play to understand just how bad the combat is,and since it's near impossible to hit anyone in the gun fights you end up running up to the enemy and meleeing them to death and melee fighting uses the awkward touch screen controls mini-game too.
Basically this is a tech demo for the Vita to show you what it can do, but it's not really worth a rent or a buy unless you want to show off your new tech to your friends and family and impress them with it.
First time playing one of these games. Thought it was a real pleasure. Graphics were great. Pretty close to the PS3 version. Gameplay was great. Difficulty on hard was very balanced. Overall i'd say that if i had played this at launch i would have been surprised. However even now playing it over 2 1/2 years later, i still found it very enjoyable.
