Uncharted: Drake's Fortune First Review by GeekPulp

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and does it live up to it's hype? Well, according to a review from GeekPulp, it does. They don't give scores, but they sum up their review with:
"Some games I want to give a score, this is one of them, it promotes gaming as an interactive adventure and an art form, broadening what is possible on a gaming platform. For this alone it deserves acknowledgement, the fact that it controls so well and is very fun just compounds this to make it a great title in gaming history. It has it’s flaws but its ambition and quality features far out weigh the few issues. Naughty Dog has my permission to abstain from making cartoon games in the future to concentrate on cinematic titles such as this. Dust off the PS3 and get ready to jump around."
Can you say ten out of ten?

Anyway, slow day today (yesterday), not much news. But take a look at the recap.
