Summary: Bad guys. Seriously, this should have just been a first person shooter and advertised as such. When I heard of the game, I was only going to get Uncharted 3, but the person buying me the game was convinced to get all three in a set. I figured I might as well play them all starting with this one. The game isn't the worst, it's actually pretty good. The locale is beautiful, the missions are fun when you have to scale, jump, solve puzzles et al.
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.
A weak third person shooter disguised as an action-adventure

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.
Excerpt: General If you think about Uncharted, you think about an Indiana Jones kind of Story and a Tomb Raider kind of gameplay. It can be described as an action-adventure game in which the main character Drake participates in firefights interpersed with solving puzzles, platforming and driving vehicles. Playability In my opinion are the control very smooth and responds well. The camera however turns often on wrong moments.
Pros: Good textures, Very good animation, Good story, Extra achievments, HD movies
Excerpt: Uncharted: Drakes Fortune was developed by Naughty Dog, and published by Sony in 2007. This game is the first of it's series, and definitely not the best. Accompanied by the journalist Elena Fisher, you play as Fortune Hunter Nathan Drake a descendant of Sir Francis Drake. Nathan figures out that the numbers on a ring in his possession are actually co - ordinates.
Pros: Not many, good premise I suppose
Cons: Boring, repetitive . Some actions don't make sense
