Uncharted: Golden Abyss Review (Vivid Gamer)

Unlike the first three in the franchise, Golden Abyss was crafted by developer Sony Bend. Crafted is the only word that is successfully able to describe what the development team has done and the details of the team’s hard work is seen in every frame of Golden Abyss. After playing through the game, it is clear why Sony would want this game as a launch title for its new portable, the Vita. Quite simply, this game kicks ass.

It definitely shows off the Vita's console-like capabilities.

Proof that this game is eerily equal to PS3's graphics

Umm no. The graphics are great for a handheld, but they're not anywhere near "equal" to the PS3.

The graphics are outstanding, but it will take a bit more time for Vita developers to fully maximize the potential of the Vita to reach PS3/Uncharted 3 graphical standards.

The Vita has a lot more room to expand and grow.

It's a great game, but it's not on a par with the PS3 installments; not even the first one. As a portable showcase though, it does the job admirably.

Oh, and Marisa Chase >>>>> Elena Fisher. You hooked up with the wrong broad Nathan!

I played the demo an hated it. Te framerate bothered me and found the controls awkward. I'll stick to wipeout ninja gaiden an blazblue

I didn't notice any framerate problems, but I don't think I can get over the QTE swipe stuff, it annoyed me very quickly.

Knushwood Butt3523d ago

Yep, great game. I highly recommend it.

Finally a review I can agree on, and not simply because of the score.

What Juan does here is review the game for what it is, while limiting comparison to its console counterpart.

Standalone, it's a fantastic entry in the series and Bend Studios certainly carries the torch for Naughty Dog with Golden Abyss!

Sounds like it's a pretty good game, this is definitely one I'll be picking up when I get my Vita.

Been playin this since thursday and im on chapter 23 and loving every bit of it reminds me of the first uncharted on ps3. I think graphically its close to uncharted 1 and remember this is a launch game give it 3+ years and i believe we will see graphics akin to uncharted 2 level!
