This game comes the closest to emulating an action movie than any game before it.
WARNING!!! THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS!!!!!
The good: The game looks amazing, the contorles are next to perfect, great voice acting, sucks you in from the start, a great story that will keep you entertained, you get to fight nazi zombies and pirates AT THE SAME TIME!!!
The bad: It's on the short side, Nate can't take much damage before he dies.
This is a great game, if you don't already have it, GO OUT AND BUY IT NOW!!!!! The plot is your tipical adventure story, a treasure hunter finds a map to some great treassure and fights off pirates and theives on his way to fortune and glory. Said treasure hunter is nathan drake, played by the always great Nolan North, he's acompaied by his (reluctant) girlfriend, and his partner sully, in his search for El darado.
Right from the get go, this game looks and sounds great, the voice acting is well done, and the graphics are amazing. You'll also notice that the contoles are spot on, and you crosshair always points where you want it. The story is also very interesting as there are many plot twists that will keep you guessing.
The game is a pop-n-stop shooter, and taking cover is essential to surviving. And take cover you'll need to as nate can oly take 4 or 5 shots before he's dead, I know this is for realisim, but it can be frustrating.
THe game is also on the short side at only 23 levels, and you can beat it in about 8 to 10 hours, but it's increably fun, and you'll enjoy every minute of it.
About 2/3 into the game at chapter 17 (this is where the spoilers start) i was geting tired of all this third person combat, then they pull out a twist, An underground nazi bunker full of nazi zombies!!! This changes up the gameplay from a third person action game, to a T-rated survival horror game for a couple levels, and this works out really well.
So in the end, this is a fantastic game that will keep you entertainde from start to finish.
