 Amazing

Hi all, i've had this game for ages now and i've actually just gone back to it to get me in the mood for uncharted 2. Was really just writing this as a heads up to people who are buying it post PS3 firmware 3.0. The game crashes randomly and you'll probably start trauling the net for answers but simply go to the settings tab on your XMB and choose to manually look for an update, you will find firmware 3.01 and this is a Naughty Dog/PS3 fix for this problem. I know some people may have already found this but to newcomers update your system before the game arrives.

 Must buy!!!

Ok so the phrase must buy or must own is often over-used, especially in the gaming market, but this game truly falls into that category. This is the game Tomb Raider has been trying to be since The Last Revelation (the last decent Tomb Raider game) and ironically could put the final nail in Lara's sarcophagus.
Beautiful environments, a simple yet gripping plot and top-notch voice-acting. Fast paced action is married with an agile and responsive set of controls so that the player is never left frustrated by the games physics. As well as this there are numerous bonus unlockables and hidden treasures, these combined with varying difficulty levels give a huge dose of replayability.
Believe me when I say you must own this game!

 Keep you playing for days.

 360 fan owns up

Ok ok I am an Xbox 360 fanboy but that doesnt matter in this case. I own a PS3 also and can proudly say that this is one of the titles that kicks some serious ass and is better than a lot of exclusives for both PS3 and 360. Graphics are smooth and despite their age hold up well, The gameplay is fast paced, fair and rewarding with few flaws and bugs. The story is deep and involving and will have you on the edge of your seat until the last word in the great script. Despite the few tiny gripes i have with this game such as the fact that its a shame that it isnt longer this is a AAA title and diserves the apreciation and credit it gets. Motorstorm, Uncharted, Resistance, Killzone 2, MGS 4 and Little Big Planet are some of the reasons to buy a PS3 but if you need just 1... Uncharted is your one
