Decent game...but some parts are a real pain to play through. 75/100
11 March 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Console:

Playstation 3

Genre:

3rd person action/adventure.

Setting:

Around the world, where treasures and artefacts can be found.

Story:

Can't say I remember...it's very much in the mould of movies like "Raiders of the lost ark" and "Tomb raider" (the latter itself being in the "Raiders" mould). In other words action/adventure with some weird goings on.

Graphics:

Pretty good, but surpassed by its sequel. Sometimes when you see character's lips in cut scenes in the game, you get that white light being visible...demonstrating that it's hard to realistically depict mouths in those context...but sequel does pull it off. Effects in game include fire, water and vegetated areas. All looks fine. The game is especially effective in the graphics department when the main character, treasure hunter Nathan Drake, is in a poorly lit underground section where Spanish soldiers lurk...it's very eerie and creepy...has an excellent survival horror feel to it.

Strengths of the game:

* The character animation is very good and the male and female voice acting is excellent (the title character seems to have been modelled on the likes of actors like Nathan Fillion or Jan Michael Vincent).

* Has a good variety of activities to do in the game...climbing, gun fighting, fist fighting etc.

Weaknesses of the game:

* The jet ski adventures add variety to the gameplay, but the second such excursion was torture to me...every time I remember it, it's the kind of memory that puts me off trying to play the game again. Annoying.

* Against the Spanish soldiers there was a section where you had to complete two tasks...you couldn't save on completing the first, which meant that you had to replay the whole section again if you died...which happened to me more than once...partly because if you let the Spanish soldiers get too close to you an animation would start showing them killing you...so, I had to learn that trying to shoot them from close range wouldn't work.

* Niggling issues...leaping to your death because the leaping system could be a bit finnicky. In some climbing activities your character does provide cues that he will leap where you want him to, but I found bringing up that cue to be a pain at times.

General thoughts:

I played this game on "Easy" difficulty after that first gun fight with the pirates attempting to board your ship...I hadn't really played a game like this - apart from the Metal Gear Solid games on Playstation 2

  • so, finding the aiming mechanism tricky, I wanted to tone down the


difficulty. Did find some of the early battles with the pirates brutally difficult, but that was because I hadn't really got the hang of the cover system. Eventually the game forced me to make use of the cover system and I got the hang of it...which makes me think that I may want to try this game again on "Normal" difficulty...it's just the thought of that blasted second jet ski trip which makes me think twice! Interestingly, I played the sequel to this game on "Normal" difficulty, and I have to say that I found that EASIER for MOST of the game, than this game on "Easy" difficulty. Which is to say maybe some appropriate difficulty challenges need to be devised.

The length of the game makes replayability possible, I think...you could maybe devote two solid days on the weekend to complete this game. After this game, I got seriously stuck into "Bioshock" and that is so huge replayability doesn't seem desirable.

Because I think playing this game on "Normal" difficulty level is 'do-able', I'm giving this game an extra 5 points...to 75/100.
