Quite possibly the worst big title game I have ever played. I didn't think that would be possible after playing mercs2, but I was wrong.
First I will start with the good. The scenery looks great and it looks cool when you are climbing. That is it...
First and foremost is the glitches. They are EVERYWHERE. I just finished my first play through and I can say that I glitched by getting stuck on something at least 50 times. Usually by jumping a few times you can get unstuck, but that isn't always the case. I luckily haven't had some of the other glitches that I have heard about with treasure and vehicle glitches. I can't tell you how many times the glitches got me killed. Single handily the most frustrating thing I have ever experienced in a game.
Second, the camera. It is terrible. When you are climbing through most of the game it moves on its own which is fine except for one detail, it changes the direction of your jumps. I recall several times where I am walking along some beam and the camera is slowly changing its view and when I press jump I go into a totally different direction than I am facing.
Third, controls. The controls are too sensitive and you can easily make a mistake. Even after playing for a while it will still happen.
Fourth, vehicles. The bike is terrible to drive. They should have just left this out of the game completely. It glitches just along with everything else.
Fifth, storyline. The plot is pretty weak. Didn't interest me at all and I have played other in this series. The real complaint here though is the level length. Some levels take little time to complete and others take a huge amount of time in comparison. I have no problem with long levels, but there is some consistency issues. It gets annoying.
Sixth, too easy. Even on the hardest mode the game is WAY too easy. It is more than likely because there is nothing to kill you. There is only a few enemies in this game to kill you. No boss fights and the only part with any real amount of enemies is the last level. If you have any skill climbing you will beat this without problem. Minus any glitches of course.
By the end of the game I was just happy to get it over with. I don't know if I have the stamina to get platinum. It seems like half of the topics about this game are how to avoid glitches or fix glitches. Terrible, just terrible.
