Phew! I was beginning to think there would never be a PS3 exclusive that could justify the £500 I spent on the console back in March. Due to the poor games catalogue and the fact that it failed a couple of months ago I was seriously regretting my purchase. However, now Drake's Fortune is here!
Put simply, if you like colourful adventure games with exciting storylines then you will probably love this game. Yes, it is very easy - although I've only played it on Normal difficulty - and a little short, but it is simply magnificent. Drake's Fortune is like a game version of National Treasure or Indiana Jones.
The graphics are extremely impressive and are certainly up there with the best that the 360 has to offer. It is hard to say whether they are "better" exactly, although they are definitely more colourful than games like Assassin's Creed and Gears of War. So for people who are getting tired of the relentless greys and browns of these sort of games, DF will be a pleasant surprise. Surround sound is also impressive and the background music suits the flow of the game perfectly.
This game is a very cinematic experience and is one of the best games to show of your shiny new PS3 and HDTV to your envious friends! lol I can't recommend this game highly enough.
