That being said, this is easily one of the best video games I've ever played (in my 30+ years of gaming). It's difficult to review a game of this scope in that it has many, many layers, This is an immensely entertaining game, one that revitalizes the single player campaign (which has been suffering as of late amidst the ADD swamp of multiplayer titles..It demonstrates how visceral and engrossing a game can be when its story is well written, evokes emotion, enables a feeling of getting lost in a moment and more so, makes the player actually care about what's happening during the experience. This is by far Naughty Dog's best and most complete game to date and one that will have PS4 players rejoicing in the fact that they chose this console (as this is an exclusive PS4 game).
As for the negative reviews, it's unfortunate that they taint Metacritic's overall user score as all of the poor scores reflect pure envy from childish gamers who aren't able to play because they're tied to another console. To this unfortunate fact, I actually feel sorry for people who can't play this masterpiece of a game as I feel that it should be experienced by all, (just as I envy my inability to play Xbox titles like Forza and the latest Tomb Raider.
Yes, this game is that good and has set the bar for action/adventure games to come. If you own a PS4, don't even think about it.. Just buy Uncharted 4 today as I promise you'll thank me for it later.… Expand

For this alone, it deserves high praise. My main gripe with it (once again) is with its campaign. Yes, things are different however it is as linear and predictable as its previous brothers and sisters, leaving me craving a shooter with a well driven story. The rest however, is absolutely amazing, polished, clever and will keep your thumbs numb long after your Xmas turkey hangover has set in. For myself, the return of Zombies alone is worth the fee as it is easily the best installation of the Treyarch adaptation and was the very first thing I played. As for multiplayer.. Well, you know the drill.. If you can stomach the filthy 16 year old racial slurs, it is as expected. Sheer shooter brilliance.
I would have scored this a 9 or 10 if the campaign wasn't so cartoon-esque and predictable but as a package, this game is a no-brainer. Well done Treyarch, you have once again infuriated girlfriends around the world.… Expand

I'm a huge racing fan and have been waiting for a next-gen version of a real SIM. With NFS and Driveclub being the only real offerings, I almost even considered buying the Xbox One because of Forza and a lack of racing titles. Newcomers beware! This is an unforgiving title that demands a precision, patience and its certainly far from a pick up and play arcade experience with rewinds and ridiculous drifting (thank god). That being said, I think its refreshing in that it is an experience that SIM racing fans have been waiting for and missing. Our last taste was Gran Turismo 6, a re-hash of GT5 that really stands alone in this genre. This game has it all, brilliant physics, beautiful visuals, extensive customization and most importantly, it truly feels like you're driving these cars. Well done Slightly Mad. Codemasters should take note.… Expand

As an avid racing fan, on normal settings, this game is very hard. Crazy AI and far more of an emphasis on SIM than Arcade racing, I found myself going to an easy setting just to get into the game. It's not a visual treat either (unusual for Codemasters) but holds its own.
Good news.. The gameplay is wonderfully challenging and reminds me of the first Grid (the best of the series) far more than the mess that Grid 2 was. The mixture of racing styles is brilliant and a great move, keeping the game fresh. I would have liked a fresh take on the first Grid mechanics but this is an amazing racing game nevertheless, and next to Dirt series and GT 5, the best racing game on the PS3. I can't wait to see what Codemasters have up their sleeves for next gen as they are truly the masters of racing devs. Well done.… Expand

I've yet to ever post any type of fan boy esque review, but if there ever was a time, this is it. Sucker Punch has continued to provide my beloved console with gems (ie Uncharted) but this epic creation is on a whole new level. Almost enough for one to buy the console just to experience it. From its breathtaking visuals, it's writing, it's ability to make you feel and keep you glued in from setpiece to setpiece, it is perhaps the best video game I've ever played (30+ years of gaming). MGS4 set the bar a while ago and this has blown it out of the water. Don't even think about it. Go out and not only buy this today, but keep it as it will be talked about for years to come. God bless you Sucker punch and PS3.… Expand
