I must be honest, a week ago I was a total newbie to the Uncharted franchise, and when I first saw the Vita game line-ups, it struck me as another Tomb Raider, which although that isn't necessarily a bad thing, I just didn't see myself playing it for hours on end.
When It came to buying the Vita, I went for a good value bundle and had the choice of Fifa or Uncharted with the device. Since I already have Fifa on the PS3, I opted for Uncharted: Golden Abyss, mindful of the fact it is the most expensive game, and if I didn't like it, I could easily sell it. Wow how wrong I was.
The game has had me transfixed for hours at a time, often in to the early hours. The gyroscope usage when you're firing a sniper rifle is superb, imagine yourself holding down L to lift the rifle scope to your eye but having to move the device itself to aim the rifle. I often find myself in sniper mode lying on the couch holding the Vita to the ceiling, which is great fun. I think I would struggle to explain it to anyone watching me though!
All in all, you cannot be disappointed. It's only downfall is some cheesy scripting and 50% through the game, I can predict the character development, but the quality of the game play allows me to overlook it.
