    Afrika is a interesting free roam game where you walk around a 3d Africa and take pictures of the happenings there. Similar to the Cabela's hunting series, you walk around armed with a jeep and a camera. Take action pictures to put in National Geographic, and explore and come across new animals! This reminds me of Poke Snap, where you take pictures of the pokemon!


    Story- The story is cute, as your there to earn money for better equipment. There is all innocent fun, with some gore from dead animals
    Cost- When i got this, it was $__ at the store. Although prices change, Amazon is probably your best bet to finding this game (it kind of seems rare to find one, although my local Gamestop has a used copy). The break down on average cost of each trophy is $__ per trophy (a total of 14 trophies)
    Language barrier- Note that there is a Japanese copy of this out there, with a different trophy list. Good if you want more trophies, but bad unless you can understand what they are saying.

    Trophy difficulty- These trophies are pretty difficult. Taking the pictures takes some getting used to, and even after you become good at that, you still need to find a picture of each animal (each animal has a female, male, and child). Then it takes patience. Certain animals dont show up till you progress a certain point, and some times it can take a week for that "event" to present itself. Then if you missed it, takes longer to find.
    Amount of game time- This game will take a while. Not only in game hours, but in real life hours as well. Because you can go days without anything new, it will make the game boring, and at the very least it will take you 2 weeks to get all the trophies (longer if you missed stuff)
    There is missable trophies- This is a game that you can miss a trophy and have to start over for the platinum. Very annoying
    Half the trophies are easy to get though, and other than waiting for those, this can net you a handful of easy trophies.
    DLC- None
    Secrets- These arnt really secrets. Its like unlocking the different animals, and its required in the game. None the less it gives you a good feeling to know that you "unlocked" the next event. Especially since between these events are just boredom.
    Other notes- You can run and drive the jeep. Should you get too close to an animal, you can also be attacked, ending your day.


    Conclusion- I would say buy it, since the trophies are easy and come out to $__ per trophy (not that horrific). This game is really fun, especially to get away from all the violence and explore a beautiful landscape.
