5.0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous uncharted game, 23 Feb 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Uncharted: Golden Abyss (PS Vita) (Video Game)
Being a huge fan of uncharted 1, 2 and 3 I had to make sure I got my hands on a copy of Golden Abyss. I knew it would be good, but not this good.

Golden Abyss stars Nathan Drake as the main character, who all uncharted fans will be very familiar with by now. He is as great as ever, and up to his usual antics (as you'd expect).
The plot of the game is to "Uncover the dark secret of a lost Spanish expedition massacred 400 years ago deep in Central America - and join legendary fortune hunter Nathan Drake in a brand new epic adventure for PS Vita. Surrounded by temples, ruins and forgotten legends, Nathan finds himself caught in the middle of a bitter rivalry between old friend Jason Dante and Marissa Chase, granddaughter of the eminent archaeologist called in to investigate the site - who has mysteriously vanished without a trace."

The story is told magnificently, and cut scenes are actually a treat to watch as they are on the PS3 titles. Graphics are fantastic, without a doubt the most visually stunning hand held game to date, and the game play is as smooth as silk.

It doesn't quite match the uncharted games on PS3 in terms of playability, simply because the small dainty analogue sticks on the vita make it quite difficult to aim... however, apart from that minor issue the game is fantastic, and you soon get used to the fiddly controls.

Golden Abyss makes great use of the Vitas touch screen and rear touch panel. You can now glide your finger over climbable objects and watch Drake climb the path you touch. The rear touch panel is used brilliantly, in particular when drake is examining an object in his hands, to rotate the object you have to move your fingers over the panel (almost as if you were holding the object in your own hands) so you can see it from every angle.

There are many other great features which use the touch screen and rear panel but I dont want to spoil it for you, you will find out when you play through the game!

Overall this game should be played by every Vita owner, It has set the bar very high for portable gaming, and the game is amazing from start to end. If you enjoyed uncharted on PS3 then you will love this. If you are new to the series but you think it looks like something you would enjoy then go for it, you will more than likely enjoy it!

Fab game, love it.
