I was really surprised by Golden Abyss, didn't expect much of it, but I'm a huge Uncharted fan so couldn't pass on it.
It's an amazing game, BUT it makes some of the same mistakes Drakes Fortune made.
I hope there is going to be a sequel for the Vita and that they work on some of these mistakes though! :)
interested to hear the mistakes
Things like location, Drakes Fortune was criticised for it's location being JUST a jungle, it got fairly monotonous and so in Uncharted 2 they shook things up a bit (and even included what I think is the best level in the entire series... breaking into a museum).
And the forced gameplay gimmicks like six axis. Though I did like some of the things they did with the touch screen that was pretty good!
I also liked their mystery system.
So it had it's ups and downs just like any other game really.
It's pretty much on the same level as the the first game. The shooting is way better than UC3.
My only real probelm was the ''balancing on a beam'' parts. Used way to much. There isn't anything really cool, in the sense of, climbing the train in UC2.
I liked the kinda of QTE Touch screens bits. BUT!
first uncharted game i've played so i really loved it. however, it's now lead me to what to buy a PS3 which can't be too healthy lol. i want to play all of the uncharted's. does this story coincide with the rest or can you play all of them at different times?
You can play them all at different times. I think Golden Abyess takes place before Drakes Fortune. I'm not sure. Or maybe before UC1 & 2?
PS3 wise. None of the stories are linked. There might be a reference to some event you played out in a previous game, I'm not sure. If you do get a PS3. I'd say play them in order anyway. It's nice to see how much progression there is between UC1 & UC2.
Well, I'm a massive fan of the trilogy... I have all 3 platinums on PS3, I have played at last count 20 playthroughs total between the 4 games from start to finish, plus numerous chapter selects... I even had a 'popcorn' day, and did the first game in one sitting once, watching all the cutscenes... so not to put too finer point on it, I'm a big fan..
I notice a lot of sites giving it lower reviews than the likes of Wipeout and Lumines, which I also love, but I can't help think reviewers and players have gotten stuck in the same mindset as they did when Liberty City Stories came to PSP.... yes it was an inferior game to San Andreas, but hello, they effectively took the GTA3 (Liberty City) engine and gameplay, and not ported it, but developed a new game off it, for a handheld system... and that's what I feel they've done Golden Abyss... put a UDF style game, with a couple of U2 elements (like the GAU, and stronger shotgun opponents) on a handheld system... plus put some treasure hunting touch elements in it..
My only criticisms are... too many hang and shoot sequences, and the shooting is a lot harder... I'm on my 3rd run through on Hard now, and I feel more vulnerable to deaths than I think have in any previous game, even on Crushing... usually when you get stuck in a difficult situation, you can save your butt narrowly with blindfire from cover... not so effective in this game.. From a technical point of view, my biggest gripe would be that often it channels you too much with it's programming... hard to explain, but take the shootout on the signboards, ala Nepal in Uncharted 2... at times when I'm getting shot at, I want to drop and run for cover, but it wont let me... Often I also got stuck on climb points and literally could not seem to get off them.. otherwise, great game..
I found it an amazing experience from start to finish.
I also found it the hardest Uncharted yet to get the Platinum on. Not just because of the bounty grinding, but because Crushing is so unforgiving.
However, it makes you a better and more skilled player because of it.
Another quality, AAA Uncharted title. Love them all !
