Consistently brilliant and highly produced, Uncharted: Golden Abyss sets a benchmark for adventure games on PlayStation Vita.
- Highly produced and consistently brilliant graphics, story-telling and characterisation
- A more open world than previous games with exploration positively encouraged
- Super slick and exciting combat
- Lack of multiplayer
- Maybe a little bit too much log balancing
(continued from previous page) ...into account players who are within a certain radius of your location, so if you don’t live in an area where there are lots of people who own PS Vita, it’s a feature that will mostly be redundant.
The biggest missed opportunity in Uncharted: Golden Abyss is the lack of a multiplayer component. This was a chance to show off PS Vita’s power as a handheld that connects the PlayStation community together to deliver the kind of social experience we’ve hoped it would deliver. It’s not a make or break feature by any means, but it should really have featured in the handheld’s flagship launch title.
Consequently, Uncharted Golden Abyss is a whisker away from being the perfect launch title for Sony’s superb new portable device. Nevertheless, the top notch production values are unlike anything we’ve experienced before on handheld, while the story-telling is typical of what we’ve come to expect from a series that consistently delivers the complete videogame experience. If you buy one game for Vita on launch day, it just has to be Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
Uncharted: Golden Abyss is a great experience from start to finish with dramatic moments, slick combat and carefully-measured platform play. Even the abundance of collectibles and stunning open environments make up in some way for its lack of a multiplayer component.

Yeah lack of multiplayer isn't ideal, but Uncharted works at it's greatest in singleplayer. It's funny how the only other problem you could nitpick are log-traversing!

That's saying quite a bit for the game (@1). Pumped. Can't wait till the 22nd.

What the very fork?
You are docking it a point for not having online? That is like docking a point from Fifia for not having machine guns! The game is not an online multiplayer experience. Review it for what it is! If you use your logic if marking down for things not intended to be in the game, I can safely say that Metal Gear Solid should lose huge marks for being the worst racing game I have ever played.

Reviewing video games may seem like the dream job to many, but there's much more to reviewing than playing games until you've gone half blind from hours in front of the TV or computer screen. Your readers will want a careful analysis of the game to help them determine whether to invest their time and money. Thanks.

There are also a few QTE sequences that kick in and take advantage of the touchscreen as you fight tooth and nail in some enjoyable one-one-one battles, slashing the screen in multiple directions to dodge and take jabs at your opponent.facebook advertisers

The greatest inherent danger in the research essay is plagiarism. If your paper consists of a string of quotations or paraphrases with little input of your own, you are not synthesizing but copying, and you should expect a low grade. If any of the borrowings are unacknowledged, you are plagiarizing and the penalties are severe.
