Sony has its own lineup of powerhouse first-party titles coming to the PlayStation 3 this fall, with the likes of Heavenly Sword
probably one of the most-talked about titles since the console's launch last year. Gamespot had a chance to try their hand at the game, and found it challenging and absolutely beautiful
. Drake's Fortune
is yet another original IP, and seems to be aiming for a fusion of Indiana Jones, Prince of Persia, and Gears of War
. From what Kotaku has to say about it, sounds like they've nailed it: "In addition to allusions to Gears' brand of "pop and stop" shooting, Uncharted features plenty of platforming. Rock climbing, jumping, rope swinging--much of it controls very well. Occasionally, some ledge traversing feels off or unpolished, but its more likely a product of the game's more organic level design. You won't see block by block levels a la Tomb Raider. In fact, some levels are so realistic in their design, you might find yourself looking for your next destination with the game's look button (R2). I found myself missing some of the game's hints, such as gates or more heavily lit portions of the map and relying on the helpful look button."
