I agree completely with the review. It was one of the first games I got my son for his PS3 at Christmas and we have both played through it at least 5-10 times each. Difficulty is rough on the hardest level though as there are some tough scenes where you have to go back to stage 1 if you mess up on stage 2 or 3... for example the stage where you land on the boat at the end and have to kill off the goons until he runs to the next area.
Still I can't say enough good things about the game even though I'm a bit of a PC purist, the PS3 got a lot of things right (feels more like a standard computer to use). Drake is one incredible game though like the reviewer, I would have liked to seen more actual exploring.
