Classic Uncharted gameplay and story hidden by tedious gimmicks.
I really wanted to enjoy this game because I know firsthand how great the other Uncharted games were. The immersion of the story and tight gameplay always left you feeling satisfied. Unfortunately, I found myself focused more on doing these menial tasks instead of enjoying the story and gameplay. Not to mention, it seemed like most of the treasure that you find are turquoise gems that hold little value other than unlocking cards.
So if you're looking for a solid, well done action/adventure for the Vita, this one isn't too bad as long as you don't mind going through scores of overused touchscreen segments in the game that pull away from what really matters.
