The graphics are amazing. The plant life, and water look realistic, and when Drake falls into water he comes out with a soaking wet shirt, in an effect that no other game has managed to pull off.
The gameplay is a great mix of puzzles, platform jumps, and shootouts. When I bought the game I figured there wouldn't be that much shooting, but I was pleasantly surprised (I'm a shooter enthusiast.)
Stacked up against Drakes fortune, a lot of other games on the ps3 just look downright sad. The climbing is good enough that I might aswell throw out my copy of assassins creed, since that was all that was good about it.
The shooting is realistic, and there's a surprising amount of weapons. The story is great, and for a relatively normal character, Nate is very appealing, and easy to like. There's excellent voicework, some humor thrown in, and some genuinly jaw-dropping moments.
Even little things like jumping from the side of a cliff just before the rocks you're holding on to break and fall into the water have a great effect.
There's only one thing wrong with this game, and it can be overlooked most times - When's the last time you shot someone 8 times around the head with an AK-47 and they didn't die. Yep, the enemies are ridiculously tough, but I suppose it's not all bad, since it helps you work on your aim, and motivates you to get a hefty amount of headshots.
If you don't own this game, go trade in assassins creed, heavenly sword, and whatever other paperweight games you have lying around, and pick it up. You won't be disappointed.
