    Saudi developers are a first but I am definitely looking forward to this title to see how much more have they derived/copied/borrowed from the Uncharted series.

    PS: Is that the Arab clones of Elena, Drake and Sully? :eek:hyeah:

    It would be available for all the platforms. Gannu, you should add Wiiware & XBLA too.

    Apologies, I missed out Wii and Facebook as well! Do not worry, the game is being developed for every other platform out there sans Linux. :p

    ^ Agreed. The character models aren't as bad as I expected but the main guy walks like an epileptic puppet. Also you gotta love how they made the female character a sister! Really?

    I think it wont interest many. Not because it has funny animations etc...But there is no originality here.Even the title seems imbecile.why they should follow uc series.

    Part of the title brings back pleasant memories of Chacha Chaudhry comic i read once.

    And, With that much clothing, they very well could have made the chic fat. I mean Who's gonna give a flying rat's rear.

    Infact any stunts pulled by her then would be more worthy of a watch.

    Yeah that's the first thing that came into my mind. :p

    This game is a perfect example of if you should do any thing do it properly otherwise just don't do it. This game has few good things which are completely shadowed by its long list of flaws.
    >Bad presentation of the story.
    >Game settings does not save. You have to change the settings every time you start the game.
    >No option for custom key binds.
    >Mouse movement is not free. The sensitivity sucks.It feels like you are forcing yourself to look at some other direction.
    >There is no minimap.There are no hints.
    >poor animation, facial expressions etc.
    >Bad dialogues.
    >Poor melee combat & gunplay
    >Bad gameplay (There is literally near 5-6 min long boring walking session for no reason)
    >Bad cutscenes
    >Buggy

    The characters are from arab but speaks & sounds like americans.(There are no arab voice actors)

    Overall I would say don't play this game or you can buy it, complete it and refund it too because the overall length is below 2 hours.:D I have completed it 100% & it took me slightly above 2 hours.
