Uncharted: Golden Abyss


There is no question that the Uncharted series is the greatest IP to grace the PlayStation 3 console. While there are a few more years under her belt, no new IP has captivated audiences quite like the antics of Nathan Drake. While Uncharted 3: Drakes...

Uncharted Golden Abyss


When we reviewed the PS Vita in February one of the titles which really stood out from the launch line-up was the latest Uncharted game. A new adventure based on the highly impressive PlayStation 3 franchise Golden Abyss sees us once again take control...

Uncharted: Golden Abyss Review


With Naughty Dog moving their attention to The Last of Us, the PlayStation Vita could be your only chance of experiencing the further adventures of Nathan Drake. Luckily, Sony Bend...

Stunningly gorgeous ; Great use of the Vita’s features ; Same standard as PS3 counterparts ; Puzzles are well done

Too many collectables ; Sully doesn’t show up until about half way through

With Naughty Dog moving their attention to The Last of Us, the PlayStation Vita could be your only chance of experiencing the further adventures of Nathan Drake. Luckily, Sony Bend Studio has handled Nate’s transition with care and competence.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss


The Uncharted series has made its debut portable effort on Sony's newest handheld, and despite the fact that a different team is handling the release there is little difference to the standard affair expected from a Nathan Drake adventure. Large,...

Despite its flaws the platforming and cover-based shooting are on par with its console peers. There is fun to be had with Uncharted: Golden Abyss, regardless of how badly it fumbles with its new technology.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss: Go on a quest with Drake


When I first heard that Uncharted was coming to the Vita, I felt trepidation over how it would turn out. When I heard it was going to have touch and tilt controls, I decided that there was no way it would be able to compare to the console titles. I've...

Great controls, great graphics, fun gameplay, good use of Vita specific controls

A few of the touch and tilt controls feel squeezed in for their own sake

Uncharted: Golden Abyss


Nathan Drake: The Early Years.

But Golden Abyss isn’t a wash. Its greatest contribution to the formula is compiling the adventure’s would-be Grail Diary. Drake always has a journal containing hints for puzzles, but you actually compile it in Abyss, making charcoal rubbings of...

Uncharted: Golden Abyss Review


The PlayStation Vita is one capable little machine and perhaps the best example of its power is Sony Bend's Uncharted: Golden Abyss. The franchise already put the PS3's considerable talents on display and the latest iteration is designed to make...

The Ugly: “Uncharted has never been ugly for one second.”

Uncharted: Golden Abyss PlayStation Vita Review


Most of what we expect from an Uncharted game is here, from gorgeous graphics comprised of elaborate set pieces to thrilling gun fights and a heavy dose of platforming. Drake explores a jungle rich with foliage, pressing through raging waters (yes, his...

Intriguing story, Nolan North as Drake, beautiful graphics, some interesting touch and tilt features, lots of treasure to find, The Black Market, tried and true button controls

Gimmicky features, brain dead A.I., not nearly as epic as the console games

Thrill seeker Nathan Drake takes his treasure hunting talents to South America in the PlayStation Vita launch title, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, an adventure that automatically gets put under the microscope, largely because it is the flagship game for...

Uncharted: Golden Abyss Review


Drake's on a plane... or anywhere else you wanna play.

Uncharted... in the palm of your hands; On par with the console experience...; The best Vita game at launch

but doesn't offer much more; Too touch-focused

But really, all the game’s complaints won't detract from the simple fact that this is Uncharted on a handheld. It's just slightly diminished. Golden Abyss is more like Drake’s Fortune than it is Deception—it doesn’t span that many environments, has...

Uncharted: Golden Abyss


You may have had enough of hanging from glowing ledges, jumping from crumbling floors and narrow escapes from massive explosions, but I can't get enough of the adventures of "Dude Raider" Nathan Drake. I loved all of the PS3 games, with Uncharted 3:...

With Uncharted: Golden Abyss we have the first must-buy for Sony's PlayStation Vita. It takes the series' much-loved gameplay, storytelling and presentation, and adds on innovative touch and tilt features to make a game that fits perfectly alongside...
