To think, I just bought the first PS3 Uncharted. It's finally available in the PSN Store!
I actually quite like The Golden Abyss. It has a little too much action, but even those parts are fun when they work. Which is to say when you can sneak about and take guards out from a hiding place. It just feels more authentic than gunning them down.
Right now, though, I'm stuck on some atrocious stage where you have to dodge rocks while floating down a river, by using the Vita's motion controls. I hate this kind of crap. I hated when I had to use motion controls in Heavy Rain, I hate it in this game. It's interesting when it's just an optional feature ( it's sort of fun how the steadiness of your gun actually depends on how steadily you're holding your Vita ), but when it's required, and the stage is as difficult as this ( I've died like six times in a row ), it just gets really old really fast.
Edit: Goddamn. Snake Eater is one brilliant game. If it has one flaw, it's that it's mercilessly long. Which, you know, is a good thing, at least the first time you're playing the game. Short games suck. And the quality of the story is consistently high. It's just that, unlike most games, it doesn't reach a climax and end two minutes after that. You reach one peak in the story, but that's not the end. After that comes the real final boss. Except that's not the end, either. After that you have to escape. But that's not the end either! That's when the story - the real story - finally reaches its conclusion. And after that, you get like an hour of cutscenes. And it's all great. But, dammit, I want to finish the game so I can start playing MGS4. Again! I don't want to give up half-way through Snake Eater. It deserves to be played to completion!
My current playthrough has gone slightly faster than my first one - I think. I'm currently at 12 hours. 12 hours! And that's not even a perfectly thorough playthrough.
Edit 2: Speaking of long games, Uncharted: Golden Abyss is longer than I expected, too. Again, not really a problem. Except that it wasn't really a game I felt like playing, I just got it with my Vita. And since I started it, I feel like I have to finish it. Especially considering I do intend to play the other Uncharted games. Because I actually do think it's fun.
