Uncharted 3 review: PS3 graphics pushed to their limit, and a plot spanning the Arabian Peninsula
12 February 2014
Conclusion: Naughty Dog has just made the best Uncharted game we've seen. Drake's Deception is a stunning technical marvel that has surely pushed the PS3 to breaking point. But it would be sound and fury signifying nothing if it wasn't for the script, characters, plot and pacing that make this one of the best...
Pros: Sublime game engine, beautiful graphics, Plot cues drawn from Arabian myth, takes place in Arabian Peninsula, Updated gameplay, Plot and characters
Summary: I was really looking forward to playing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception . While I loved the original Uncharted , I did agree with some people that it felt a little repetitive, especially towards the end. With Uncharted 2 , though, Naughty Dog pulled out all the stops and got everything right.
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: 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: 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.
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: The '3' in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception could just as easily stand for the three major aspects of gameplay that work together to make it so much fun to play. The first of these is story. In many games story is used like cheap kindergarten glue as something to stick the levels together.
