EDGE- Take away the set-pieces, take away the scale, take away the regular writers and most of the supporting cast, and what’s left? Well, there’s Drake, who still has more charm in his trigger finger than the majority of games’ thick-necked leads in their entire bruising frames.
There’s also the beauty of Uncharted’s exotic locales, which act as a great showcase for Vita’s astonishing display. And even if Golden Abyss starred a power-armoured space marine fighting his way across the cardboard-box planet, it would still be a robust thirdperson shooter, the likes of which we’ve simply never seen on a handheld. The core Uncharted experience is still here, in other words. It’s stripped a little bare, but it’s just about enough.
