Summary: The year that this game came out we also got the likes of Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, God of War 2 and Bioshock. All 4 I would have rated higher and give more credit too. All which were rate lower on here. I just do no understand. Uncharted is not a bad game. But does not have a great story or voice acting of the prementioned games. The controls are poorly thought out and the graphics are about the same as Mass Effect and Assassins Creed.
Summary: I don't know why this game has so many rave reviews. I just finished playing it and the game consists entirely of get from point A to point B and kill 5,000,000 bad guys in between. Throw a couple of puzzles in here and there, and a little bit of climbing, and you've got yourself a sorry excuse for a tomb raider rip off. Graphics are vibrant and beautiful, that really is the only thing good about this game.
Summary: This is simply put on of the most frustrating games that I have ever played. This is due to the games cover/gameplay mechanics. Cover serves little to no point in this game because, more often than not, an enemy will just come up from behind you with a shotgun, or you will get hit from a random sniper. That said, this game has one of the most cinematic story lines, and realistic graphics that I have seen. Thankfully most of the combat issues were fixed in Uncharted 2.
Summary: Pros: Sixaxis Dual shock 3 controller and Drake's Fortune game for the price of a controller alone. Controller also a Bluetooth device. Cons: No controller charging cable came in the bundle. All in all a really good deal. I also purchased a PS3 250 G console, controller bundle which came with my choice of 1 game ( I chose Gran Turismo ) and 2 Blu-Ray movies for the regular list price of $349.
Summary: If ever there was an overrated game, this is it. Reading about this game, I got the impression that it was an action-adventure game. And it certainly dresses itself up as that. A friend of mine described the game as a combination of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider. And seeing the ads and the reviews, you'd THINK that's what this game is. Unfortunately it falls very short of being the epic adventure game it pretends to be.

Summary: I can imagine the meeting - "We have this great adventure game - gorgeous environments, fun action, interesting little puzzles, but it's only 4 hours long, what do we do?". "I know- let's add waves and waves of enemies to make it last 12 hours! We won't advertise it, we won't show it in the commercials, and we'll make the AI dirt easy so we don't have to waste time developing it." That's what they did.
Summary: The reason why i chose 3 out of 5 stars is for 2 main reasons. i have to mention the fact that i loved playing this game so much, how ever the draw back to this game is that at times you would experience going of the plot. The main purpose of the game is for your protagonists to find the lost treasures of Sir Francis Drake, however you spend so much time looking for other character who gets taken away, lost and wondering about.
Summary: Finally got around to playing this during the festive period as time is a premium in my life :( So what do I think? Well, you can probably gage that from my title to this review. But I will expand. Naughty Dog have really done well with renderings and such-like...the scenery, vistas etc are stunning. A great use of colour a la Crash Bandicoot. But that's part of the problem for me..
