It was Tomb Raider than led me to the Uncharted games. I picked them all 3 PS3 games up for a bargain price at our local second hand store, and I'm about half-way (perhaps a bit more) through Uncharted 2. Very good, they are too.

Just finished Tomb Raider. Thoroughly enjoyed the game. The game involves a lot of searching for objects such as GPSs, documents, relics, ammunition etc. Some are very difficult to find but the Adventure gamer in me helped a lot. There are also a number of challenges to complete which were fun. There were many combat sequences involving killing up to 20 enemies. They were difficult but I just lowered the game difficulty and that helped. There were action sequences that required specific buttons to pressed when the prompt came up on the screen resulting in death if they were not pressed correctly. The good thing is that if you die you always respawn close to the scene because of auto-saving. There is also a fast travel feature where you can go back in the game if you missed anything.
All in all I'd give the game an A. smile

You're very welcome L4L and Kaki's sister. wave

L4L, I'm into Far Cry 3 right now. Two full days of playing. I'm enjoying it a lot. It's like playing a FPS version of Skyrim (huge Open World to explore while avoiding pirates etc) smile

Sounds like fun, except for the shooting part...My only foray into FPS had me shooting my feet more often than anything else. rotfl

Hi Gerry ...
I've played The last TOmb Raider
It's more like survival game grin
But it's worth it because I like TR series from the very beginning smile

But the last one is almost similar like "Far Cry"
More survival for Miss Croft

Enjoy gaming Gerry wave

Edit: Hello Manxman wave
I play Far cry 3 and stressed me out :LOL:
Desperate for ammo LOL enjoy

A friend of mine bought it from Amazon. I played it on my PS3 although I've played all TR's on my PC. I thought I'm not going to like it since it's too different from other TR's. It's more action based & survival rather than puzzle solving action adventure. But I enjoyed it. It was a nice game. I agree mostly with manxman & others too. I didn't like a few things. I also didn't like the story very much.
