Forget Tomb Raider. If Lara Croft pulled out her soft round breasts and rubbed them against my cheeks while gently whispering in my ear that she wanted to go on an adventure, I'd promptly inform her of my newfound homosexuality and proceed to hop on Faris Jawad's ♥♥♥♥.

Okay, okay, okay....

Yeah, this game sucks! I'm not arguing against it. It's horrible. It's garbage. But when you've played the sh** I've played through, Unearthed is hardly a "bad" game. The shooting and controls are decent.

And... yeah, and that's it.

It's obvious what game this is trying to rip off. A five year old could tell what Unearthed is trying to be like. But oddly enough... I can help but saw "Awwww!" like seeing a toddler trying to paint their own version of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" with some crayons. You just can help but love it and post it on your fridge.

The graphics are pretty decent. They look nice and are well-textured. They don't come close to the very obvious game that Unearthed is ripping off, but they aren't the worst graphics I've seen in a game.

Okay, yeah. I might as well mention everything that sucks. The animation. The stealth stage. The really easy puzzles. The RC car. The stealth section. The boring walking section. The driving section. The main meat of Unearthed is rotten to a black, squishy mess.

But... I feel like the team that made this did put some effort into this game. It runs relatively smoothly. The voice acting is decent. There's tons of details put in to make this game feel "alive". It just completely fails and falls flat on its face.

I don't know. Maybe my sympathy for Unearthed has spawned from seeing all the people out there make fun of it. Like the chubby kid at the playground you knew from elementary school. Sure he was the easy one to pick on, but he was just an innocent, unknowing kid. So forgive me if I show some pity on this game.

Yeah, it still sucks massive a**, though. So... 4/10!

cheap knockoff of Uncharted/Tomb Raider. Still, for a cheap knock off the story isn't half bad. It also has some decent texturing. True, the voice acting is horrible, and the animation somehow even worse...and the glitches! Don't get me started on ther glitches!

Let's be honest! The game is a steaming mess! Other than a decent storyline, the game virtually has no redeeming factors! The worst part though is that it's an abuse of the "Episodic" game genre! It's why I hate episodic games! They can be abandoned and you never get to finish your game! This game? Prime example! It came out in 2014, and here it is 2016, and still no episode 2! The game has no ending, and likely never will!

The games also WAY too short for a 5 dollar game! I know it says I spent 5.3 hours playing it, but the game was completed in about an hour and a half...Not even enough time to start getting the games playing cards! So, I had to sit and let it run so I could get them.

If you absolutely MUST get it, get it on sale! It's been on sale for 99 cents...that seems like a fair price for the content in this game..any more than that is a ripoff.

REVIEW -- UNCHARTED 4 PC -- REVIEW

Uncharted 4 takes place immediately after Uncharted 3, we find Nathan Drake in a beautifully rendered cave, the recognisable voice of Troy Baker rings through the air, god I love him...

GAMEPLAY - 9/10
The gameplay builds upon the nearly perfected action of Uncharted 3, with intense areas where you'll have to carefully navigate over ledges or through caves, it's a graceful and cinematic experience that could please anybody.

STORY - 8/10
I hate to find a fault in this game, but sadly I have to say that the story isn't quite as good as Uncharted 2 or 3...
My main gripe is simply the fact that Nathan Drake now has a sister, who I don't quite remember from the last games, and it seems that her only purpose is to become kidnapped. As well as this, he now has an uncle (I think? It was hard to remember) that only serves to tell the story, and if anything becomes a bit of a deus ex machina.

OVERALL - 9/10
Overall, this game is amazing, a very well deserved sequel to Uncharted 3, and I'm just so happy it came out on PC. The only thing keeping this from being a 10/10 is the cliffhanger at the end, I have been kept in suspense since I finished and I just want Uncharted 5 already.

I played it for a couple hours. The graphics are mediocre, the story-line cheesy, and it felt like a knock-off of some cross between Tomb Raider and The Librarian movies. I doubt I'll ever re-install it.

I gave up on this game after only a few minutes - the controls are terrible. Also despite her prominance in the advertising, the hijabi character is not playable, which is the main reason I bought the game at all.

I've played Xenoblade Chronicles X, I've played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and I've even played Thundersnail, but this game is the only one that feels like a true next-gen experience to me.
The shooting-mechanics are revolutionary and responsive. The graphics are to die for. The hand-to-hand combat is only contested by the grabbing mechanics of Little Big Planet, and it's an overall fantastic game every gamer, casual or hardcore, should experience.

Oh wait.
None of that is actually true. This is a bad game.
Play it for laughs though. I'm legitimately looking forward to episode 2.

This game is horrible. It's pretty obvious they were shooting for more than they could deliver.

The graphics are terrible, and somehow run like molasses. The music is fine, and the voice acting is fair. Not great, but fair. The controls are difficult, and the animations are not fluid at all. The game feels very stiff, and it's unforgivable that you cannot rebind your controls. You're stuck with whatever they assigned for you. The areas where they force your character to move slowly kill any pacing the game may have. Platforming and climbing are almost humorous in their execution.

In addition, the humor and writing is absolutely awful. It's 4th wall breaking, and not funny. Not to mention, in the first actual cutscene between brother and sister, they don't even look at each other as they speak.

Stay very far away from this game.

Who the even heck is Nathan Drake anyways?

This game is terrible in all the right places. I would put this one step down from something like Deadly Premonition. The whole 'episode 1' feels like a prologue as its likely supposed too but inevitably it all feels a little like the devs got too ambitious. Its got tomb raiding, cover mechanics, RC cars, platforming, rooftop chases, car chases, a slightly awkward fighting system and a Sci-fi original narrative to boot.

Its got jenky animations in all the right places, just watch their hands during the cut-scenes. The shooting is AT BEST functional. Its hard how to put into words why exactly it is I like this game and want to see more (though that's likely not going to happen) Its kind of like a bad movie in the way 'The Room” was; it sort of has this vibe as this is obviously a disaster but I can't look away and simply must see this thru.

I am not making a comparison to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey as they are completely different games but I can't help but shake the feeling that this game reminded me of Dreamfall in a way that I'm not entirely sure I can justify. Yet the feeling remains.

Some of the dialogue seems hyper aware that it's a videogame which is always fantastic to see. It has also come to my attention that this is some approximation of an iOS version which would explain why there is an option to automate aiming entirely right after choosing new game. Which would explain a lot of the overall jenkiness. But part of that jenkiness is what makes it endearing.

THE GIST
Pick it up when its cheap. Its harmless and I rather enjoyed it.

A game can be low-budget and unpolished and still great (like Marlow Briggs). Not this one, though. If you're looking for a half-decent Uncharted-style game, try Adam's Venture.

En gång, så var jag ute på krogen. Det var en trevlig kväll med mina goda vänner. Vi drack Staropramen på fat och det var så gudomligt gott, (särskilt om man jämför med Staropramen på burk som man köper på bolaget.) Vi bjöd alla på varsin runda och alla skrattade och började sakta bli fulla och glada. Någon tid senare inpå kvällen så gick vi djupare in på krogens andra avdelning och insåg att det tydligen fanns ett dansgolv och de spelade dansmusik där inne. Inte för att någon av oss är särskilt intresserade av dans och den typen av musik, men vi gick in ändå för att det verkade ändå vara en rätt go feeling där inne. Jag beställde en öl till i baren, såg på bartendertjejens röv när hon lutade sig ner för o hämta flaskan i kylen som jag precis beställt. Den var fan inte ful.. asså denna röv är som en fotomodells sådan. En röv som man bara vill äta till julskinka med dijonsenap på över en stillsam middag i mörka tider. När jag väl fått min öl så rörde jag mig mot dansgolvet, fortfarande osäker på varför, men jag gjorde det. Och innan jag ens hann ta en slurk av ölen så såg jag en kvinna blicka åt mitt håll. Det slog eld och lågor direkt och jag kunde bara inte hejda mig så jag gick fram till henne och sa hej. Hon sa hej tillbaka och en sak ledde till en annan och innan jag visste ordet av det så hade jag funnit min själsfrände. Den här tjejen var så jävla skön på alla möjliga vis och vi hade en sån löjlig personkemi. Vi dansade, vi hånglade, vi fann kärleken på dansgolvet. Hon följde med mig hem den kvällen och vi älskade, Inte bara knullade utan det var ren älskog i timtal. Svetten rann och kondomer gick åt. Tiden gick och vi bestämde oss rätt snart för att göra det seriöst så vi blev tilsamans officiellt. Jag lärde känna hennes kompisar och hon lärde känna mina kompisar. Vardagslivet kom och vi trivdes båda två med att komma hem till någon man älskar varje dag efter jobbet. Hon jobbade med att skriva ut fakturor åt ett företag och ta hand om betalningar, jag var en vanlig knegare på en kullagerfabrik. En dag på jobbet så skadade min kollega Gunvald sin tumme på överfalsverket som formar kullagrena. Jag tyckte lite synd om Gunvald eftersom han tappade en del hud på sin tumme och, ja, fyfan vad onte det måste ha gjort. Jag tog mig en kaffe och försökte att inte tänka på det och gjorde mitt vanliga jobb istället. Efter jobbet den dagen så tog jag spårvagnen hemåt, lysnade på Ed Sheeran, och drömde mig bort mot Västindien och dess gröna vatten. Rätt snart insåg jag att min spårvagnshållplats närmade sig så jag drog i stopp-snöret, reste mig och närmade mig dörrarna. På vägen hem så kom jag på att vi behöver ägg så jag smet förbi gatubutiken o köpte ett paket. De må vara lite dyrare men vafan, orka dra ända ner till Coop tre hållplatser bort. Jag kom hem och jag tog av mig skorna, gick in i köket och ställde äggen i kylen. Rätt snart så hörde jag ljud från sovrummet och blev förvånad över att höra stön. När jag väl kom in i sovrummet så fann jag flickvännen i säng med en man jag inte känner och blev helt ställd. Jag ifrågasätte vad de höll på med trots att det var rätt uppenbart, men chocken fick mig att göra så ändå. Hon började gråta och mannen såg allmänt förvirrad ut, men innerst inne så brydde han sig inte det minsta. Rätt snart så visade sig att hon inte fann gnista i vårt förhållande längre och det var även därför hon råkat i säng med en främling. Jag fann detta avskyvärt och kunde inte känna mig mer avstött. Jag började supa och jag visste inte vad jag skulle ta mig till. Men en dag så knackade det på dörren och jag gick fram bakis, i bara mina kallingar och öppnade dörren. Där stog det en flicka runt tioårsåldern och undrade och jag ville köpa choklad av henne. Tydligen så skulle hon på klassresa och genom att sälja choklad så kunde de ha råd att åka ända upp till Karlstad. Just då så råkade jag se att hon hade mörk choklad med hallonfyllning och alla som känner mig vet att jag är löjligt svag för både hallon och mörk choklad. Jag frågade direkt vad hon ville ha för hallonchokladen. Hon sa att hon ville ha tre och femti.

I don't even know where to start with this game. The only way I can explain it is by saying Wow. Just Wow. This game is amazing. From the amazing gameplay, to the gripping story and characters, this game still ceases to dissapoint me. I will continue to play this game.
GAMEPLAY
The gameplay in this game is some of the best I have ever experienced. On the outside it may just look like a typical cover shooter, but once you start to play it, you will realize how much deeper it really is. Getting kills is really satisfying, and the game rewards you for working hard. You will always be on your edge of your seat, wondering what is around the next corner. On the normal difficulty, the game is not to hard, and is not too easy. It is just perfect. However, if you want more of a challenge you can always up the difficulty in the settings.
STORY
The story in this game has to be one of the best stories in a videogame, let alone a movie or book, that has ever been executed. The story in this game is definatly up there with The Witcher, The Last of Us and Metal Gear. It is just that good. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't talk to much about the characters. But holy, you are in for a treat.
OTHER THOUGHTS
This game runs very well. On my GTX TITAN X, I was able to run it at max settings, 60fps, with shadows turned down to high. That is good considering this is a triple a game, and the graphics are outstanding. I personally think they are the best graphics I have ever seen on the PC.
The game also has no bugs. There may be a couple, but I myself, have not run into a single one.
FINAL VERDICT
By this game. You will be doing yourself a favour. I would even recomend it if it was $60. Its that amazing, so it is worth it.
SCORE: 10/10 "Wow. Just Wow."

I could give this game a negative for the controls response alone. Walking, jumping, kicking and punching all feel like an effort.

The camera deserves a special mention too. Forced perspective, wheeling and eventually made me feel a little motion sick.

The graphics are not fluid and feel dated. The sound is so-so.

This is a very short game with long (skip able) cut scenes.

Achievements are easy to get, most story acquired and one object related.

Nice mix of scenes and game play and the story is okay.

När jag väl kom in i sovrummet så fann jag flickvännen i säng med en man jag inte känner och blev helt ställd. Jag ifrågasätte vad de höll på med trots att det var rätt uppenbart, men chocken fick mig att göra så ändå. Hon började gråta och mannen såg allmänt förvirrad ut, men innerst inne så brydde han sig inte det minsta. Rätt snart så visade sig att hon inte fann gnista i vårt förhållande längre och det var även därför hon råkat i säng med en främling. Jag fann detta avskyvärt och kunde inte känna mig mer avstött. Jag började supa och jag visste inte vad jag skulle ta mig till. Men en dag så knackade det på dörren och jag gick fram bakis, i bara mina kallingar och öppnade dörren. Där stog det en flicka runt tioårsåldern och undrade och jag ville köpa choklad av henne. Tydligen så skulle hon på klassresa och genom att sälja choklad så kunde de ha råd att åka ända upp till Karlstad. Just då så råkade jag se att hon hade mörk choklad med hallonfyllning och alla som känner mig vet att jag är löjligt svag för både hallon och mörk choklad. Jag frågade direkt vad hon ville ha för hallonchokladen. Hon sa att hon ville ha tre och femti.

I've played Xenoblade Chronicles X, I've played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and I've even played Thundersnail, but this game is the only one that feels like a true next-gen experience to me.
The shooting-mechanics are revolutionary and responsive. The graphics are to die for. The hand-to-hand combat is only contested by the grabbing mechanics of Little Big Planet, and it's an overall fantastic game every gamer, casual or hardcore, should experience.

Oh wait.
None of that is actually true. This is a bad game.
Play it for laughs though. I'm legitimately looking forward to episode 2.

This is the worst game I've ever played and I highly recommend it. It's up there with Ride to Hell Retribution in terms of hilarious incompetence and misery. It's one of those unique experiences that are so bad that you just have to see it for yourself.

You owe it to yourself to suffer and laugh through this game.

Many people would try to tell you that Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta is a poor man's Uncharted, when it's clearly the other way around. My friend and I discovered after playing through the whole game that what we have here is clearly the better experience. For example:

Uncharted had Nolan North. Unearthed has Troy Baker. Which one of these voice actors won GOTY last year? That's what I thought.

Unearthed: 1 Uncharted: 0

Unearthed runs at 60 FPS at 1080p. Uncharted only runs at 720p at 30 FPS. Basic math tells us that since the frame buffer has roughly 4 times as many pixels and twice as many frames, Unearthed is at least 8 times better looking than Uncharted.

Unearthed: 9 Uncharted: 0

Uncharted 3 had horses. Unearthed has 4 wheel ATVs. That's 4 more wheels than Uncharted lets you ride.

Unearthed: 13 Uncharted: 0

Uncharted only runs on the PS3, while Unearthed runs on Android, PC, Mac, and probably the Gizmondo.

Unearthed: 17 Uncharted: 0

Uncharted only has creepy slippery Nazis. Unearthed has full on zombies, and it doesn't need to explain why they're there.

Unearthed: 18 Uncharted: 0

Uncharted usually only gives you a few weapons to choose from at any time. Unearthed has more weapon types than there are enemies in the entire campaign.

Unearthed: 19 Uncharted: 0

Nathan Drake is a ♥♥♥♥♥ who gets scared and emotional when the going gets tough. Faris Jawad doesn't stop cracking jokes even when a gun is fired at his sister.

Unearthed: 20 Uncharted: 0

Finally, as Unearthed rightfully points out on the store page, this game has been translated into more languages than most best-selling literature will ever see, because Semaphore knows everyone will want to play this and wants to be culturally sensitive to everyone. Uncharted consists of playing a white guy shooting minorities. I think we know who is more socially responsible.

Unearthed: 41 Uncharted: Racism

Winner: Unearthed

This is just a summary of all the things that make Unearthed the best. I didn't even go into detail about the leisurely strolls through the city discussing the plot, or the Kafka-esque analysis of the futility of escaping in a car as the city loops around you. There's just too much to this game to pack in one review, and I implore you to check out what may already be the de-facto GOTY of 2014.

UPDATE: Here is a full play through for the game done by me. I went through it a second time for you guys.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDaqY5XSwlA

First and foremost I would like to say that their are a lot of people bashing it just based on what they read from Metacritic, without actually owning or purchasing the game. I have in fact purchased and played through the entire game already. In short I can't recommend it as it is the shortest story driven game I have ever played (1 hour to complete going slowly). Here are my basic points and review of the game.

The pros:
- The story, while your two main characters are a bit weird (brother and sister), has some potential. Sort of Indiana Jones'ish.
- The environment looks pretty decent for a $5 title. Recently Indie games have been scaling back the graphics to focus on gameplay, this actually has some pretty decent looking areas.
- It is fully voiced in English and Arabic.

The cons:
- Short! The game is super short. It took me about a hour or so to complete and I could have done it a lot faster. 1 tutorial level, 1 full exploration level, 1 short vehicle combat level, 1 walk around level, 1 quick chase event, and 1 driving event.
- Weird movement issues at points. I would try to interact with a ladder to go down and it would jump me in the air and climb up something that wasn't there.
- AI is dumb. I would shoot someone with a SMG and their buddy a couple feet away would still be walking patrol saying something like "I know he's around somewhere". Also some other nuances like "Cover me, I'm reloading" when no shots were fired.
- The melee combat is awful.
- The driving sequence has you driving around Moroco, but the city just loops around. You will drive through the same streets no matter how you progress.

Would I recommend it? Not really. The game has some glaring issues with it, in many cases to the point of them being comical. However I am curious what they are going to do with the next few episodes. I don't regret the purchase if for anything will make for a good playthrough video. It is a $5 USD game for let's say 1 hour of campaign. There is a survival mode that I unlocked after completing it, but I could take or leave that. The price point is so low that you might want to pick it up just to see what it's about, but you aren't going to miss anything groundbreaking if you don't. Plus it is probably the shortest campaign driven story game that I have ever played.

While it's refreshing to see a game like this that doesn't feature a burly white American man as the main character, Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta, is unfortunately a very buggy, poorly slapped together game with hilariously bad voice acting, animations and writing.

It's nothing more than a mockbuster created to capitalize on the success of the Uncharted series. Even in one of the early cutscenes it's mentioned that the protagonist "always enjoyed raiding tombs and uncharting mysteries in videogames." If the game wasn't so broken I may have enjoyed it, but it makes Deadfall Adventures look like "the Citizen Kane of Video Games". It's sad because the Unity engine is capable of much, much more.

Would only recommend it if you want something to laugh at.

5 minutes in and already dropping down into white endlessness because of clipping errors. Moving is a hassle, left/right movement is not strafing but will turn the character, move him forwards and re-align the camera - no matter what the mouse tells the camera to do. Might be handy on a console, but when you're using a mouse to control the camera view - why build in things that override the player controls? It's really an utter nuisance. Controls can't even be configured. Maybe you'll find it better with a gamepad, but even with a controller there's nothing you could do to avoid "jump-rolling" into a wall and dropping into eternity. Doesn't look toooo bad, it's obvious that some work went into this, but to my eyes it's PS2 level, hardly PS3. Not "current shooter average".
Pigeons sitting under water, enemies staring at walls and shouting lame "reloading, cover me" commands into an empty room, showing zero AI at all... Really sorry to be so negative, but it's just not worth the 4€ from my point of view.

This game took me 52 minutes to complete the story mode and a total of 60 (extra 8) minutes to get 100% achievements. That kinda sums it up .-.

It's like I discovered the meaning of life. But it ended up being horrible and the complete opposite of what I wanted/expected.

On the other hand they were nice enough to include graphics, sounds and controls.


My favorite part was being able to rotate the camera through peoples faces and seeing their teeth from the inside.

Well this is it ladies & gents, the most horrid game I have played in recent years.

As soon as the game loads up you will feel the clunky, awkward controls and notice the incredibly bad character animations. The camera can be manually rotated, but it often gets "caught" on obstacles. The voice-acting is simply atrocious, and is backed up by an exceptionally poor script. I actually looked forward to ending the lives of the protagonists just to free them from their dull existence. The only thing this game had going for it was that the surround sound (5.1) seemed fairly consistent and some of the background noises such as flies buzzing around bins, were surprisingly good. The music was generic and uninspired though.

The story of this game is not fleshed out at all... in fact, it barely exists. The narrative boils down to this: you look for treasure with your sister, but someone else wants that treasure too. That is it.
To make matters worse, the game consists of several very short scenes which do not even warrant the title of being "levels". They are incredibly linear, and only the first scene (after the intro/tutorial scene) actually consists of any platforming and exploration. One level is simply walking through the market at snail pace without any meaningful conversation between the three people walking together. That level was the most tedious experience I've ever suffered through in gaming.

Oh and also there's a pointless zombie survival mode tagged on at the end in which you get placed in a corridor while zombies spawn on either side of you. What... The... Hell?!
Who thought slapping that in would make this game any better? WHO?
The entire game lasted me around 90 minutes for me to 100% it (story, achievements, and a go at zombies)

I cannot describe how bad Unearthed is in a review, so I will summarise with this: please do not waste your money on it.
I did not waste my money on this; luckily (or unluckily) I won it for free.

عدلو على (بعض) الأخطاء الي كانت موجودة في النسخة الأولى للعبة
هذا ما يعني ان اللعبة كاملة, لا ننسى ان الركاز تعتبر أول لعبة عربية من نوعها. صحيح ان الكثير يقول ان اللعبة "تقليد أعمى" للعبة الشهيرة أنتشارتد وهذا شيء سيء بالنسبة للمطورين وأعتقد انها خطوة سيئة للدخول في سوق الألعاب بهاذي الطريقة.
اللعبة إذا بتشتريها فقط اشترها "لدعم المطور العربي" لا اكثر ولا اقل.
