Uncharted: First Impressions

Halfway through the first Uncharted, I've begun to ask myself "So... is this Ico with guns, or Prince without the Sands?" Either way, this game kicks ass: great writing, voice work, and facial animations; stunning environments, too. Well played, Naughty Dog... Crash and Jak are forgiven you!

I'm glad you're enjoying it.  I was afraid you'd be put off by the bullet-sponge demeanor of the enemies.  If you think these environments are stunning, just wait until you pop in the sequel!

@MGSolid86: I actually went into the game having read (years ago) about that being a bit of a problem, so I haven't been nearly as annoyed by it as I would've been had it come as a complete surprise.
 
@lead_farmer: Haha. They're certainly a last resort!

I don't see the connection when you said "Ico with guns." I definitly see "the Prince without the sands" though

Same here. And

Huh? If you're referring to the SIXAXIS, they patched that out a long time ago.

@nohthink: The sections of the game involving puzzle-platforming remind me a lot of Ico. The sections involving gun combat do not.
 
@EVO: The game is certainly more similar to Prince of Persia overall.
