Summary

Consistently brilliant and highly produced, Uncharted: Golden Abyss sets a benchmark for adventure games on PlayStation Vita.

We like

  • 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

We dislike

  • Lack of multiplayer
  • Maybe a little bit too much log balancing
