I bought the game on Friday and beat it by the Saturday. It's a great game with quite a variety of gameplay types. They also work well together to tell the story. It took me about 9.5 hours to beat the game and it was all worth it.

I'm highly saddened that the 6 axis controller isn't used more in this game. After the demo I was expecting some really neat things using the motion control but since playing the full version there are none.

Rope swinging, jumping, turning valves, steering, etc...all stuff could of easily added to the gameplay fun with motion control.

WTF was Sony thinking? Dumb ass Lair haters have ruined the greatest feature of the PS3.

I finished the game last weekend and plan to go back to it a bit later to collect all the treasures and unlock more bonuses. Aside from looking at a faq and comparing it to your treasures found, is there any way within the game to know which levels still have unfound treasures remaining?

Id rather have a long game 20+ hours on normal that would take 10 to 15 on easy and 30+ on hard.

That way you have a choice and can get your moneys worth.

I have been putting abt 30-45 minutes per week for the last 2 months. This looks like the first game I will actually finish since Gears of War which took me 3-4 months!!!!After that I am going to try to play through R&C which should keep me busy till GTAIV and other goodies come out

Yes, they should of given us an end level exit screen with # treasures missed, enemies killed, etc.. you know some interesting stats.

Finished the game just now. 47/60 treasures, 400 metals, 13.5 hours. Took my time and looked around a fair bit for treasures.

Good game overall but it some how felt kind of generic the whole way through. The game never felt like it wanted to kick ass in any particular gameplay direction. I kept wanting a few more special moves or better more interesting puzzles or some cooler weapons than what they gave us.

Such nice graphics and levels, not sure why (might be Crysis) but the lack of environment interactions was screaming at me the whole time playing this game. So many great level areas with invisible walls, unclimbable or unmovable stuff.

Finding treasures along the way was poorly done and unsatisfying. Was more haphazard running around and dumb luck than anything.

No blood effects or decals was too darn kiddie PG; this an awesome Wii port?

Near zero physics besides bodies as far as I can tell which was another thing that added to the generic feel.

Would of like to of seen much more 6 axis usage.

Enemy variety was kinda low. Thank goodness for the last few chapters spicing things up a bit.

Like the cut scenes and story; it's what made me keep playing. Thought for sure her camera would mean more in the story somehow.

I give the game a 8.7/10; pretty darn good but played itself too safe.

Graphics are what carried this game the whole way through. Gameplay was pretty descent, the climbing and swing areas were fun. Worst part about the game was the fact that only 1 handgun and 1 large gun could be carried, he could have used a backpack to carry more! And the fact that it took 8 hours to beat even after finding 1/3 ofthe treasures and 400 points made this game waayy to short. I feel Heavinly Sword has better replay value than Uncharted

*Possible Spoiler*
To me, it felt like a mix between Farcry and Tomb Raider, but I feel Uncharted went wrong with adding the zombies into the story line, I think they could have gone a better direction with the story line towards the ending. Still a great game though 8.5/10

I tend to agree with Lord Yahtzee on this one. There's no question Uncharted is gosh-darn pretty, especially on a 1080p TV. The gameplay just seemed a bit "off" to me, for the reason that it does indeed try to do too much with the whole action/platform/vehicle/QTE malarkey.

The game is decent but not great.
