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 .-.

I don't know what I expected. There are a number of things that are wrong in this game. First of all, I had FPS issues so it took me a little longer to get through all the crap. Second, the characters look lifeless and seem to almost creepy. Third, the protagonist is so stiff and slow that it takes more than five times to get through even the easiest trap. And finally, it's really short. You can almost tell that this game was made for the sake of getting profit.

Though I have to say, this game does make me want to play Uncharted again. And at least I completed Alex's challenge.

I appreciate what this small dev team is trying to do but it feels like a game from 2001.

I knew it would be bad the moment I saw the first cutscene. The character models have zero expression, their VA's have zero emotion, the subtitles are almost entirely unpunctuated, the animation is frankly hilarious in its ineptitude, the difficulty is nonexistent on Normal mode, the "hints" directly tell you what you're supposed to do (effectively turning it into a hand-holding "you suck" button), and the game threw a fit when I tried to return to the menu.

Sure, it's good for a laugh, but there's no actual redeeming quality to be found other than unintentional hilarity. Don't go into this unless you're actively trying to find a bad game to play. In the meantime, I'll need to have a chat with the friend who gifted this to me.

There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers.


Time to add one more. This game.

I don't know if Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta is only cheap tribute to Uncharted 2 or just it's parasite. Maybe it's my first game from Saudi Arabia, but it looks like a first game this country ever created. Well...

|+|
● all missions are different
● streets of Morocco are surprisingly very nice
● one good joke about green tea
● now I know something about Ibn Battuta
● almost forgot about 'Survival mode', it's mummy-hell!

|-|
● stupid decisions of main characters (story could end in 1. mission)
● short (completed in hour)
● price; 5€ for ~ 1 hour? o rly?!
● linear
● easy
● moving bugs, shooting bugs, bugs, bugs....
● Farid is an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ & his walk is too fabulous

Rating: 30 %

Ride to Uncharted: Retribution
"A game that's like one of those oversized dog breeds: a big heart, a short lifespan and a talent for generating crazy ♥♥♥♥."

If you can get it on sale it's actually probably worth it for the laughs. Trucks jump off sand dunes and fly into the sky. Your character can't walk faster during a stroll-with-exposition scene and it's possible to fall behind the other characters by half a mile and still hear them perfectly because the audio is localize on the player (I like to believe the protagonist just temporarily became schizophrenic). At one point two cars crashed together, neither my own, and the game just told me I won.

The game smacks of good intentions crippled by amateur execution: there's set up for an interesting story and clearly a lot of love put in but the whole end product feels a lot more like someone's over-ambitious Unity hobby project than a finished work. I don't particularly regret buying it (again, on sale) because I feel like this developer has potential to do bigger and better things.

Crash at the end of the first chapter. I found no way to go resolve the bug and the suggestion of the developers (repeat again the last fight) do nothing to resolve the problem. Uninstalled...

THIS GAME just made the top list of my worst games I have ever played!

It's not just the graphics that look bad, but there's also the god damn controls that suck ♥♥♥... I even lost count on how many times I managed to glitch through a wall or how many times I just got killed for some reason. The best part, I suppose, is the part where you can drive the bloody car! There aren't even any physics! The car can get stuck, and even if it doesn't, you don't have any idea where you are supposed to go. I even think that the game decides when you have driven enough and just ends the level occasionally.

It's even unbelieveable, that they tried to make a puzzle game, but then turned it into a thirdperson shooting game, and then into a brawling game??? What the ♥♥♥♥ is this game? I know... It's the trail of Batulan Ibn!

The brawling sections in this game are the worst. They just kept on coming! There isn't even any strategy in it, you just mash one button until the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ falls down and then do the same thing once more, to ensure that the guy will get knocked out. What?? Is it even necessary to put these every now and then here? It's not like they are exciting or anything... just mash the button!!

I do like the story however. But I do believe that the story isn't enough to block the other holes in the great wall of batula!

Overall, this game was a horrbile experience, and I wouldn't go recommending this game to anyone :D. But I guess I had the best 1,6 hours of my life. The only reason why I would pick this ♥♥♥♥ up, would be the fact If you are curious what ♥♥♥♥ this will hold inside (like I did). Everything in this game apart from story is straight up ♥♥♥, the models (especially those gun models -._-.), the animations, graphics, music, cutscenes, and pointless tips, that don't come to help you when you need them THE MOST.

So what will I give this game?

Two ♥♥♥♥♥/10

ARE YUUS BEINGS SERIOUS OR ARE YUUS KIDDERINGS ME?

Fell through the floor and wall on several occasions, and had to restart the game after it caused the first puzzle to break. Also the camera is godlike in its ability to shift around in the most unhelpful ways to suddenly send you to your death.

10/10 would phase through solid objects without wanting to again.

There’s no way this could ever be a good game. There’s nothing about it that will impress unless you’ve never seen a game before. Useless, horrible, horrendous, unintentionally comical.

Game: 1.5/10

The game play is extremely boring and too simplistic. But the idea of a video game named for Ibn Battuta is priceless, and as a fan of history and culture, I had to get it.
