The lights are on
As soon as you start the game the story grabs you by the throat and
doesn't let go. If you've read my other reviews you know I don't like
to go into the story to much but here it is: You play as Nathan Drake a
fortune hunter with a habit of getting caught up in historical myths.
In the first game he raced to find the mysterious Eldorado. In this
game its a much bigger picture. What starts of with Marco Polo's
missing ships ends up evolving so many plot twists, betrayals, and
discoveries that I'm not going to go any further as I couldn't do it
justice and it really shouldn't be spoiled. But its good, really good,
The game play is basically the same as the first game but is much
better. I don't know how they did it but its just more fun. For the
most part you're running and taking cover while shooting at the hundreds
of enemies you will face over the course of the game. The rest is tomb
raider stile platforming which is really fun and something I wish they
had added more of.
The graphics in this game really have no equal. You can watch it on you
tube, but when you're actually playing it it will blow you're mind.
This is 100% the best looking game I have ever played. Possibly the
best thing about this game is that there are no load screens once you're
in the game, making it feel like a twelve hour interactive movie. I
cant stress enough how great this looks and the same goes for the sound.
This has to be the best voice acting ever in a game. The lines feel
so real and believable that its hard to believe they aren't real people.
The sound effects are also flawless with everything sound just as real
as the rest of the game looks. It really draws you in and doesn't let
you go till the credits end.
I haven't even said a word about the multiplayer which is still going
strong after two years. Even if it wasn't in the game it would be a
must buy. It feels like you're getting free stuff.
Bottom line (no pun intended) this was the reason I bought a PS3 and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.
