A broke man's Uncharted is no substitute for the real thing.

Comprehensive highlights of the review:
- PS2 graphics and level design
- Flat sound, as in B-class movie
- Broken collision detection(can move through pillars and fall through floor)
- Environments are boring, and their small length works on their advantage(less pain...?)
- There are hand-to-hand fight elements, which handle more like a 2D fighting game with lame controls(attacks with L and R buttons, finisher with Square)
- Episode 1 is less than one hour long
- Seems more like a mobile phone game than anything else.
- Gameplay wise seems more like a classic Tomb Raider than Uncharted.
- Reviewer admits he was frustrated multiple times on the bugs and glitches, but managed to sit through those 50 minutes.
- Good localisation.
- Good gameplay variety
- Devs said episode 2 will be greatly improved.

*Saw a helicopter falling down. Drive towards it.* /facepalm.

The animations are so damn stiff that I almost got a stiff neck. >_<

Still a better game than Call of Duty.
