"It's taken nearly a year for Naughty Dog's first game to emerge on the PS3-short order for a game of this magnitude. Part of Sony's elite first-party contingent-the most influential in all the land-Naughty Dog broke altogether new ground on PlayStation with Crash Bandicoot and PS2 with the Jak & Daxter series, but could they three-peat with a game that bears no resemblance to their creature-based juggernauts? An adventure grounded in duck 'n' cover and environmental acrobatics? …Oh yeah. I consider Naughty Dog among the top five developers in the world, but even I had my doubts on this one. From the flamboyant Jak to a guy in a T-shirt… How do you build a franchise around a guy in a T-shirt?"
