    Yeah. i have now turned it way down which seems to improve matters.

    It's a fun game once it stops with the relentless tutorials.

    Mind you this is a constant bugbear for me.

    Devs, please include an I am a seasoned gamer and never need to read another tutorial ever option please.

    FCUTA!

    Finished! 8/10. A jolly good romp. I started to play agin on vrushing but the fact that rubbings etc. still pop up even though you no longer have to do them and can simply hit the tick is a little lame. Not sure I can be botherd to go through it again.

    Precisely the reason why replaying the game again (on hard, not 'crushing') doesn't appeal to me, which is a shame really.

    I shall save it for a rainy Sunday!

    Yep it makes it a real slog. Once you've done them they shouldnt appear on other playthroughs.
    Tried to go back to mop up trophies but feel my times spent better on the backlog I've built up.

    I'm roughly half way through a final playthrough on crushing, and the only parts that are thoroughly rage inducing are the shooting whilst hanging sequences. They border on unfair, and I've come close to biting the Vita at times! Aiming is ridiculously sluggish and the narrow POV is cruel.

    Worth noting that there's a new patch out for the game. Apparently it tweaks the Crushing difficulty (although it didn't actually say which way) and fixes some bugs, such as the reset counter one.

    I am so glad about the latter! I guess it can't have happened to everyone since some of the people on my friends list have got the trophies but it started about 3/4 of the way through the game for me and screwed up my trophy hunting somewhat. I downloaded the patch last night and did a few more Crushing levels and it seems that my counter has reset again, but hopefully for the last time. :D

    Patch downloaded :)

    Been replaying this over the last week, trying to mop up a few trophies. Also had another look at the Black Market. Still don't really get what it's all about - no obvious way to offer goods to trade or see what's available. Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems pointless to me...

    Quality game though!

    @Flying_Pig Yeah, as far as I know you can only pick the category for the Black Market. I've had 18 trades so far, I think, but apparently it should pick up with the patch. Not sure how you get those odd artefacts in trades though-I've only had one. Weird.

    I need to get that 250 headshot trophy-I got a notice that I'd got 210 about 3/4 of the way through the game and then the next notice I got told me I'd got 10. I quite like going for the however many kills trophies for some reason though. /psycho alert

    It is good fun!

    Is there a way to track your stats? I've looked, but can't find it :(

    I don't think so. Annoying, that.

    I wish they'd add it in a patch. Since the messages flash up to let you know your tallies it does have the capability.

    Yeah - but I can't tell if I'm 2 or 20 kills off some of the weapon trophies

    Seeing as the game tracks 'em, I don't understand why you can't see them

    So that it's more of a surprise when they reset? I'm not bitter. ;)

    A lovely update wold work wonders. I would love to see a sort of survival mode where you take on waves on enemies till you die. Sort of a horde mode.

    How was I supposed to know about this update? It was only after reading this (thanks santashi!) I looked for it and found it via the orange arrow on the Uncharted home page. Surely the game should automatically tell me there is an update available!?!

    Annoyingly, I'm near the end of my 'hard' playthrough and just yesterday the stats reset. I got a 'congratulations you have made 10 headshots' when I was upto about 490. Does this mean it has reset for the 3 weapon trophies I'm yet to achieve? Also, I've been 'nearing' the blackmarket thing a few times a day and have still not got a complete collection of any trophy. If I'd known about this update I may have already completed the trophies.

    Really pissed off now, might just not bother trying to complete my trophy list.

    Thanks for you of who've sent me Black Market stuff - I'd return the favour if I could figure out how...

    It's all automatic anyway. No one has and say in what gets sent, when or to whom.

    Same here, what weapons are you missing? I'm missing SAS-12, RPG-7, GAU-19 & MK-NDI. Would go back and get them if my counter hadn't reset! But, Im so close to getting a platinum in my first game!

    For some reason I bought this at release but have only really played it now, up to chapter 28 or so and it's absolutely brilliant.

    I agree with comments on the rubbing / over use of touchscreen being a tad annoying and will probably prevent me from playing through it again BUT what needs to be said is :

    THE GYRO AIMING IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO HANDHELD GAMING. Oh it rhymes too ;)

    Seriously, after about an hour of getting used to it, I'm a headshot king. I get 3 times as many headshots in the Vita version than the PS3. I truly hope they implement that sort of aiming in all shooting games....

    I sending my Vita and this game to my brother (huge Uncharted fan) for a while. What does he need to select when starting a new game? I want him to try mop up the collectables for me.

    Chapter select.

    Edit: A bit more detail... He can select the first chapter via Chapter Select and then play the game as normal. I can't remember whether he would be able to select a higher difficulty setting than you used, or just the same/lower...?

    Yay, I've finally completely finished the game off! It probably counts as really easy but it's the first one I've ever gone for and I'm really proud to have got it. :D

    Anybody got any hints for the firefight in the middle of chapter 26? The one after Scully injures his leg and you can hear the bad guys say 'the old man is injured, aim for him'. I'm playing through on crushing and finding it nearly impossible to stay alive without getting Scully killed!
