While we've only seen a trailer so far, the game seems to be a treasure-hunting adventure in the tradition of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, with the footage showing an intrepid hero (who seems to shop at the Gap) fighting and leaping his way through a beautifully realized jungle setting.
What really stands out is how intricate the animation is and how each strike, weapon reload and jump is utterly convincing. This is then combined with slightly exaggerated action, to impressive effect.
The untitled project is still some time away from completion, but is one of the more impressive original PlayStation 3 games to come to light so far. We'll be monitoring it closely.
