Haters gonna hate

I really don't see why so many people are complaining about this game. Maybe it's just because I'm playing it on the new iPad but the graphics are incredible, the frame rate is fine, the textures are definitely NOT muddy and over all the game was an immersive experience that I enjoyed every second of. I encountered not a single crash or bug and my final thought is that most of the people who have bought this game are haters. The game was wonderful and just because it isn't as good as the uncharted series doesn't mean it's bad. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes action adventure shooters.

I like this game...

This game does not get good reviews, yet I don't see it as a horrible game. I bought it when it was premium-priced, and don't regret it. I see what the developers were attempting when making this game, and I don't think they failed in their vision - it just was a bit more tedious than they thought when all was said and done.

All and all, it is a high-quality game, and does well in showing itself as an asset to iOS gaming. This is not an easy task; perhaps iOS is just fundamentally inappropriate for elaborate attempts at console-quality video games. But such strides in that area have to progress somewhere, and here is another step in that direction...

Awesome! Please Make a Sequel. Update your games for iOS 5

I have to say, Gameloft, you did pretty good job on this game. It was very fun to play and I really liked the story. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Uncharted. Also, Gameloft, you really need to update your older iPad games such as Modern Combat: Sandstorm and Gangstar: West Coast Hustle for iOS 5. They have been really glitchy and not working, especially Sandstorm. I will not buy any more games from that era, such as the first N.O.V.A., if they will not work on my iPad. I am not the only one who has found these issues.
