I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Classic platforming gameplay, decent story, lots of places to go, lots of different things to kill

The Bad: No sense of direction what-so-ever can make you lost easily, cheap deaths

I remember Tomba! back when I was a kid. That was a really great game then. It even is for today but of course shows it's flaws more now. The story of Tomba! is about pigs...evil pigs. You are a caveman looking dude with pink hair who naps under a tree one day and an evil pig comes and swipes your bracelet your grandfather gave you. You try to recover it but you wind up doing more than just that. While the game has great platforming abilities it's plagued with cheap deaths and not being able to find your way most of the time. With no map or any hints what-so-ever it can make things frustrating. While the game sports many different enemies and environments it makes you feel like some thing's missing anyway. The main draw to this game was the unique idea of 2D and 3D mixed platforming. There are two parts of each level but one is behind each other. You can jump down from 2D platforms and come out of it like you would in a 3D game. This was both trippy and unique at the time. Make sure you play this game is you haven't and you'll love it.
