"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."

"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."

"I really failed to see how this game is so well loved by most. I found it to be quite boring. I played the game when it was first released for a couple of hours and quit it because I couldn't get into it. Decided in 2019 to play through it to try to see what's so great about the game in most people's eyes. Managed to complete it, but still don't understand its popularity. Graphics were good, voice acting good, music mediocre, story so-so. Swarm fights can be very difficult. One of the most annoying things about the game is that in single player story mode, on a single playthrough it is only possible to get at most 3 trophies. All others can be only be gotten on a second playthrough! No way is the game worth playing a second time."

"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."

"This review is for the single player story only. First off, it's clear they decided to focus more on the multi-player game modes. The single player mode is only about 10 hours of game play, compared to 20-something for the first Uncharted and around 40 for the second. On the plus side, there are some really masterful technical achievements in the game that must have really pushed the PS3 to its limits. Unfortunately, unless you're really paying attention or watch the Making Of featurettes where they brag about them, you might miss them. All of our favorite characters are back for at least a few chapters. What we do have is pretty typical Uncharted fare by now. Good graphics, great soundtrack, great voice acting, good story, varied gameplay and scenery. The problem is there is just too little of it. The game goes by quickly, and isn't very difficult at all. The final confrontation is an absolute joke compared to Uncharted 2."

"Let me start by saying that there is A LOT of content in this game. Story mode consists of 5 separate but interwoven campaigns. The first four campaigns can be played solo, local co-op or online co-op. The final campaign can only be played solo. It is a single story told from the point of view of 3 partners (Leon and Helena, Chris and Piers, Jake and Sherry) and solo protagonist/antagonist Ada. The campaign features most of the typical Resident Evil fare, plus a whole lot more: Buddy combat in close quarters, but also across huge arenas (new for RE). Puzzles. Collecting. Lots of weapons. Insane bosses and super-bosses. Except for the prologue, each campaign consists of 5 chapters, and each chapter has many sections/checkpoints. Most chapters play between one and a half to two hours in length when playing solo on Normal difficulty. There are also extra campaign chapters that can be purchased as DLC. Beyond the campaign, there are additional solo and multiplayer game modes as well. With so much content, it seems like parts of the game were developed by completely different teams. You may sometimes feel like you're playing completely different games from one chapter to the next. Still, it is mostly a well put-together game with a decent story and presentation."

"5 stars for presentation and controls, but only 3 for story and originality. There’s just nothing special about the platforming aspects of the game."
