Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception review
by tolsterrr

More of the Uncharted we’ve come to love and a great deal more!

Similar to the previous games in the series, Uncharted 3 is an action spectacle of a game.  The visuals are incredible, cut scenes are fluidly mixed with gameplay, and they’ve tightened up the controls and improved on previous features.  Unfortunately, it took a step back in terms of story.  U3 tries to have us invest in the relationships of the games, but the barebones story they provide on Drake and Elena, the questions it loses about Sully and Drake, and the general plot that seems to contradict the first game we’re all stumbling blocks, imo.

 Still great though, and really a must play game.

While the second game of the series made considerable improvements over the first in gunplay, graphics, level design etc., this installment is the exact same in terms of mechanics, gameplay and graphics. Simply put, its more of the same. And that’s not to say it’s not an enjoyable game. The game is focused much more on Drake and Sully’s relationship, and the whole plot seems like a pretext for exploring it (as well for some good ol’ action, of course). The weapon variety is thankfully finally expanded beyond just the handful of guns that were available in the first two games, and the level design, while not radically different, seems like the apotheosis of the Uncharted formula, reaching truly breathtaking heights at latter parts of the ship level. All and all, this game doesn’t offer anything radically new by any means, but combines and to some extent polishes the good about the first two Uncharted games into a still formidable and enjoyable package.
Worse than second but better than first
«Time-tested»
