The hero is Nick Drake, descendant of 16th-century English explorer Sir Francis Drake, one of many who took a stab at finding El Dorado. Using Nick, players attempt to finish a journey started more than 400 years ago and find something worshipped by ancient civilizations, chased by conquistadors and German soldiers and protected by monks.
The game moves effortlessly as one chapter flows seamlessly into the next. The action is interrupted only when a puzzle is encountered or a cut scene introduces a shift in the plot. The high-definition graphics mean characters actually look wet in the water and the less-sturdy parts of the environment stand out".
