Summary: Uncharted is one of gamings best series. Uncharted Drakes Fortune is a very good game. The graphics are not bad but are very early ps3. The gunplay is tricky, there are moments when I enjoy it and other moments I dreaded to fight. Entertaining story, decent gameplay, okay soundtrack. I played 4 stories in this game but honestly Don't see myself playing much more stories in the future. Good ai,although they throw more grenades than shoot.
Summary: As a big fan of both the Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones franchises, I welcomed Uncharted as a new addition to the archaeological adventure genre. The graphics are good for the time and the voice acting is excellent. The storyline is solid and rooted in history with the twist that the protagonist Nathan Drake is a direct descendent of the pirate and privateer Sir Francis Drake. There’s action, humor, sarcasm, romance.
Summary: I grew up on Tomb Raider and heard this was like it: adventure, puzzle-solving, exotic locations, shooting stuff, etc. I was hugely disappointed, in pretty much every aspect. 1. there are maybe 5 puzzles throughout the game, and they are overly simplistic. 2. the gameplay consisted of moving from one set piece to the next and engaging in a fierce gun battle with 10-15 jungle mercenaries. And...that is the entire game in a nutshell.
Summary: It might be a bit harsh to hold Uncharted: Drake's Fortune against the light of newer games, but since no game exists in a vacuum it is entirely fair. And any fair discussion of the game must point out that as interesting as the story is, and as action packed as the gameplay is, the limits of what you can do here are very disappointing.
Summary: This game is ok, but don't be deterred, the rest of the series is phenomenal. The problem with this game is pretty much that it's the same thing over and over and over. You get to a new area, you shoot some guys, move, jump a bit, then start shooting again. Occasionally you get on a jet ski and the end mixes things up a bit, but other than that the game is way too repetitive. Of course, the game has some good parts to it.
Summary: "Drake's Fortune" is a great first installment in the popular Naughty Dog video game series, "Uncharted." It paved the way for more intense and visually stimulating gameplay for third-person shooters. If you're familiar with the sequels and want to see how Nathan Drake got his start then check out "Drake's Fortune." You won't regret it.
Summary: In my opinion, one of the greatest games still in the market today considering it came out in 2007. I would have given it 5 stars but the game still suffers from tearing and froze on my first playthrough. Totally worth it if bought brand new and below $20. If you're new to the Uncharted series, start with Uncharted 2 where a lot of gameplay mechanics have been improved over the first one. Get all Uncharted games to complete your Uncharted experience.
Summary: I heard about this game before but I didn't know anything specific about it. I went into it expecting a truly amazing game like everyone was claiming it to be. However it didn't quite meet that standard for me. I'll talk about what I like about this game first. The characters are some of the most loveable I've seen in a game. The voice acting is top-notch and the characters just feel very realistic and modern, especially Nathan Drake.
Summary: Uncharted Drake’s Fortune follows Nathan Drake as he follows in his ancestor Sir Francis Drake to find the treasure of El Dorado. Drake works with journalist Elena Fisher, who was funding the project to get a story. However along the way they discovered that El Dorado is in fact a statue and that the Spanish had moved it years ago to a Pacific Island. Drake and Elena travel there but are shot down on their way to the island.
