3D action platform video games are arguably a sub-genre of 3D platform video games, though perhaps a departure all together. With game franchises such as Tomb Raider, Uncharted, and Prince Of Persia making up the bulk of this style. Whilst maintaining many of the same game elements, stylistically these games are rarely identified as platformers; more frequently called the catch all "action adventure" usually reserved for games that defy categorisation. It is difficult to decipher where this sub-genre would end and Hack & Slash or sandbox video games that just happen to include platforming, such as InFamous or Devil May Cry 4 would begin.
