"Visually and technically impressive, but just not that fun for me."
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
"Every other review will tell you this game is vastly superior to the first one. Not this one. While the game was longer and more technically complex than the first one, I did not find it better. I found the story to be inferior, the slew of new characters unimpressive, and the controls slightly glitchier during platforming. There is considerably more platforming to do in this one. There are more "puzzles" to solve, but the answers are all provided in Drake's notebook! Until the final couple of chapters, all of the enemies are boring clones with only 3 variations. The final two types of enemies are quite difficult, although there is a trick to easily beat the first kind. With one or two exceptions, all of the weapons are identical to the weapons from the first game, and almost all of the trophies are exact copies, too! Treasure collecting is more difficult in this game, especially after the first few chapters. The original game had 61 treasures to find, this one has 101. All of the character models except Drake still lack the same level of detail that he has. This game has multiplayer mode (not for the story), but I did not try it. Despite all of these complaints, I still enjoyed the game, but not as much as Drake's Fortune."

Gran Turismo 5
"I guess the GT games are the best racing games available for Playstation consoles, but I found this game to be inferior to Xbox's Forza series."
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
"A continuation of the story from the previous entry, Rise of the Tomb Raider, but set in sunnier less depressing locales (Mexico and Peru). This entry focuses more on Lara's trying to figure out who she was, who she is, and who she wants to become. While on her own mission to stop Trinity from doing something nefarious, Lara takes time out to help a couple of indigenous Peruvian villages with their own struggles. Gameplay is largely the same as the previous game. Exploring, platforming, locating tombs, solving their puzzles, escaping with treasures, weapon and outfit crafting, skill upgrading, all while being a one-woman Trinity extinction force. I found nothing particularly bad about the game, but nothing spectacular either."

"Gameplay is OK. Art style is nice but very repetitive. Same locales and enemies over and over again. Local multiplayer up to 4 players is nice."
"I love everything Remedy has ever made. This game, while definitely good, did not enthrall me to the level of previous games like Quantum Break, Alan Wake and Max Payne 2. I'll say one thing for this game: it is vast. There is a lot more to it than originally meets the eye. Lots and lots of secrets. If you just play according to what you're told to do, you'll miss out on a lot. The game is also brutally difficult towards the end."

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy

Tomb Raider: Underworld
"The graphics and gameplay in this title are quite good. The story isn't bad but they could have put more effort into finishing off the story, especially with regards to the supporting characters, after the final fight. All-in-all, probably my favorite Tomb Raider game. And to this day, in 2020, it remains the final Tomb Raider story, chronologically-speaking, since the three games released after this one are all prequels. Will Lara ever have another adventure after this one or has she retired? LOL."
