Thoughts so far from anyone that has played it?

#1 Edited by Phatmac (5725 posts) -

I know a review from Giantbomb will be up soon. I'm mostly asking general GB users that have played the game and their thoughts on it. Some will point me to official reviews, but I usually don't use them as the one all be for purchasing advice. I'd rather have a person who doesn't play video games for a living. So for anyone out their that has actually played the game, is it at least worthy of a Vita? I'm curious about getting a Vita, so I'll probably get this game. How is it? Does it translate well on the Vita or is it bogged down by being on a handheld?

I played it at an event, the platforming and shooting is as good as Uncharted 2, albeit with less amazing set pieces (in the event demo.at least.) Graphics look nice. My only issue were some of the terrible uses of the touch screen. Mainly using the Machette, as the trigger for it is really finiky then it launches you into a terrible touch swiping mini game.
If you are a big fan of uncharted it could very well be a system seller.

@Protome: Was wondering, do you HAVE to use the touchscreen for jumping ledge to ledge and stuff? Or can you just use the buttons like FIFA for Vita

For the most part you can use buttons, the machete example I gave is only touch however as are a couple of other actions . The important things like climbing you have the choice of buttons.

Is reloading touch-mandatory? Please say no, please say no.....

@Starclopsofish: I'm like 99% sure that there is a button for reloading. But I don't remember.
