Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Game Over Online
28 November 2015
Excerpt: I have a sneaking suspicion that this fall may well represent some sort of nexus in the space-time continuum. It seems like every other game that has come out serves as the end of a major trilogy (or at least the third game in a major series).
Excerpt: If you ask me what I found the best game in the last five years, I would probably answer Bioshock, Irrational’s groundbreaking underwater experience, or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Naughty Dog’s almost perfect mix of action, adventure, puzzling, comedy and unforgettable characters.
Summary: " Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception " is the best of what a summer blockbuster movie can bring. Paired with strong gameplay, the story and characters provide a wonderful tale that you will want to keep on your shelf just to play again.
Excerpt: Let it be publicly known that Nathan Drake is a card-carrying member of the rather exclusive club of video game characters I have a whopping big man crush for. Is it the dashing good looks, those irresistible rapscallion ways, or that seemingly inexhaustible string of pithy comments? I can't tell.
Conclusion: We all knew this day was coming, however no one expected it to be so soon. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception concludes a long journey for our guys and gals over at Naughty Dog. What once started out as a simply single-player experience with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has turned into an all encompassing...
Excerpt: When the critically acclaimed Uncharted 2: Among Thieves released, at the time I thought that this was the best the Uncharted franchise could ever be. They redefined the standard for the franchise and oh boy, was that standard high.
Excerpt: Apple has become one of the most successful and richest companies in the world by taking preexisting gadgets like MP3 players, smartphones and tablet PCs and applying an unparalleled level of industrial design and marketing hype to make them appealing to the mass market.
Pros: My son telling me to jump back onto my horse after I chased down a moving truck with it, jumped into the back, and took out a bad guy.
Cons: You’d think Drake has Wolverine-like healing powers after crashing through the floor for the umpteenth time.
Excerpt: For those of us who didn't mind a splash of the cinematic in our games, 2009's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was an absolute gem, blowing minds with its brilliant gameplay and garnering multiple awards in the process.
Pros: That stunning horse-riding sequence.
Cons: Too many questions without answers, and a plot in search of a soul.
Excerpt: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception straitjackets the player into a highly scripted, linear path through gameplay to cinematics. Regardless of how one feels about this sort of game (and I don't mind them) the demand is there, the games are there, and we ought to judge them on what they are trying to be.
Pros: The hallucinatory sequences in Ubar and Yemen.
Cons: Gunfights on the water and in a sandstorm magnify the significant deficiencies of the gunplay.
