Hey guys whats up?
Yesterday I was at Circuit City and was pretty bored. So bored in fact that I went to an open ps3, and tried out some of the games on it. Played some racing game for a bit then I tried out Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. It was simply amazing.
First of all, the graphics were beautiful. The shadows and lighting were next to perfect. The water and grass looked superb. And the attention to detail was also great. There are your next-gen standard rag-doll physics as well as one effect that when Drake goes in water, his clothes are wet and sag down. (I think this effect is called wet-shirt physics)
Then the gameplay. It's an interesting combination of Gears of War and platformer. Like GOW, you can take cover behind objects and shoot your enemies from there. There are a fair amount of weapons to keep you happy like pistols and machine guns, and you can use combo attacks. Your enemies are pretty tough so you'll need to shoot quite a few rounds at them until they go quiet. The platformer gameplay is also done well here. All of the platforms looked natural so you were never wondering why that bar is randomly stuck in a tree. And you don't have to have precise timing either. It's really easy once you get the hang of it, and it can be fun as well.
Although I'm a PC gamer, I got used to the controls really quickly. The movement are all sharp and although there is no auto-aim, you'll be doing head shots in no time at all. I never use the combo attacks though because I can never remember exactly what buttons to grind at so I can take down my opponent. I just pump them full of lead until they go down. I didn't understand the story- mainly because the television there was muted. Curse you Circuit City!
Anyway, you should check this game out if you get the chance. Later guys :D
