Review: Uncharted Golden Abyss, PS Vita, £37.99
4:16pm Friday 17th August 2012 in Leisure
Nathan Drake has enjoyed some pretty stupendous adventures, and another one now awaits. Well, two really.
First, a prequel tale to the PS3 titles that rivals those you’ll have more than likely already played , and secondly a dangerous dalliance on Sony’s new handheld PS Vita as a triple-A launch title.
And this game will do a darn good job of shifting thousands of the system.
Everything about Golden Abyss reeks of Uncharted quality: Impeccable voice acting, cracking puzzles, an engrossing storyline, amazing cinematic set pieces and some innovative uses of the Vita’s front touchscreen and back touch panel.
It’s a truly beautiful adventure, which is probably why camera-based quests made it into the game, as well as the regular physics puzzles, to remind you you’re looking at a work of art on the small screen.
