GamesRadar: "Set for release on Sony's new NGP, Uncharted: Golden Abyss serves as a prequel of sorts to the main series. Developed by Bend Studios – the masterminds behind much of the Syphon Filter series and Resistance: Retribution – Golden Abyss is an original story that not only looks fantastic and plays great, but utilizes the NGP's new touchscreen and accelerometer controls.
We were able to play a few sections of the game, of which took place near a temple we couldn't quite catch the name of. Golden Abyss looks remarkably similar to most environments found in Drake's Fortune, in that you'll traverse through a temple with plenty of waterfalls, rushing creeks, sun-caked jungles and the foundations of temples that have been overtaken by nature. Comparisons aside, Abyss is gorgeous on the NGP's five-inch screen, what with real-time lighting and water physics that soak your clothes, and eventually dry over time."
