Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
2 September 2013
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. For me, the game was the perfect experience from beginning to end.
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. It may not manage to quite match the heights set uniformly by the incredible Uncharted 2, but is close with some even grater peaks and an ending that provides a satisfying conclusion for the game's three heroes.
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. I'll admit, I had a lot of doubt that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception would be able to stand above Uncharted 2, raising it's hand in victory.
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 experience that has and is shared by millions worldwide. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is the definitive experience for the PlayStation 3 enthusiast.
Excerpt: Uncharted has seemingly taken us to every inch of the globe. From the frozen tundra to the densest forests of South America, Nathan Drake and his partner Victor "Sully" Sullivan have traveled the world in search of ancient treasures. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is the latest in the string of blockbuster titles that would probably more accurately be described as an interactive movie than your run-of-the-mill video game.
Summary: Parents need to know that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is an action adventure game about a treasure hunter that contains a lot of violence. While there are some platforming and puzzle-solving elements, a lot of the game focuses on combat. Players use machine guns, pistols, rocket launchers, and grenades to kill enemies, who might spurt plumes of red blood and fall down realistically. Drake can also punch and choke enemies and snap necks.
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. In others it provides a certain amount of context and motivation for the gameplay.
