Summary: Pros: Sixaxis Dual shock 3 controller and Drake's Fortune game for the price of a controller alone. Controller also a Bluetooth device. Cons: No controller charging cable came in the bundle. All in all a really good deal. I also purchased a PS3 250 G console, controller bundle which came with my choice of 1 game ( I chose Gran Turismo ) and 2 Blu-Ray movies for the regular list price of $349.
Summary: If ever there was an overrated game, this is it. Reading about this game, I got the impression that it was an action-adventure game. And it certainly dresses itself up as that. A friend of mine described the game as a combination of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider. And seeing the ads and the reviews, you'd THINK that's what this game is. Unfortunately it falls very short of being the epic adventure game it pretends to be.

Summary: I can imagine the meeting - "We have this great adventure game - gorgeous environments, fun action, interesting little puzzles, but it's only 4 hours long, what do we do?". "I know- let's add waves and waves of enemies to make it last 12 hours! We won't advertise it, we won't show it in the commercials, and we'll make the AI dirt easy so we don't have to waste time developing it." That's what they did.
Summary: The reason why i chose 3 out of 5 stars is for 2 main reasons. i have to mention the fact that i loved playing this game so much, how ever the draw back to this game is that at times you would experience going of the plot. The main purpose of the game is for your protagonists to find the lost treasures of Sir Francis Drake, however you spend so much time looking for other character who gets taken away, lost and wondering about.
Summary: Finally got around to playing this during the festive period as time is a premium in my life :( So what do I think? Well, you can probably gage that from my title to this review. But I will expand. Naughty Dog have really done well with renderings and such-like...the scenery, vistas etc are stunning. A great use of colour a la Crash Bandicoot. But that's part of the problem for me..
Summary: A dated launch title which was impressive on release in 2007 compared to 4 years later it doesnt look very good. The story is nonsensical and the charcters are voiced well but extremely bland. It remidned me off a saturday mornings kids cartoon. The gameplay consists of gunfights which are actually quite difficult. I was expecting the game to be a breeze but each section was genuinely taxing.
Summary: When the next gen consoles were released i ended up with an xbox 360 since the PS3 was taking so long and was looking so pricey, so I have only just got a PS3 now. I have been looking forward to this game for quite a while though so once i got the console i bought this, LBP and Resistance. I played resistance and was really disappointed so my hopes for this game started fading, but luckily i was pleasantly surprised.
