we agreed already they are creepy stuff thrown in to make it cooler.
I suppose we did - sadly, they *are* "just creepy stuff thrown it to make it cooler". And therefore their value diminishes immensely, and what could be a genuinely chilling creature becomes a cheap thrill.
I'm not sure I'm part of whatever intended audience you think Uncharted caters for.
The sort that would value some things above others - which is true for any game and/or film. Some gamers will prefer adventure games, others platformers. Others prefer story-heavy games, others prefer games heavy on the action. Uncharted players will, I suppose, be the sort of people that love the latest blockbuster films - and I'm not saying anything bad about blockbuster films. I happen to enjoy watching Blockbusters once in a while. But they're lighter entertainment, and this is what U3 feels like - a light blockbuster, which will be particularly enjoyed by people who liked The Mummy and its ilk.
I just think it's an utterly technically competent mainstream game which also happens to have an engaging story and script,
So as not to end on a sour note: I agree on all of the above, regardless of my issues with the game.
