UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune review
Meh
by RodEnzo

Uncharted conta a história de Nathan Drake em sua jornada para encontrar o famoso El Dorado, sendo um shooter de terceira pessoa com elementos de plataforma.

A história do jogo não é das melhores, os dois primeiros atos são clichês e focados numa lenda comum e já "manjada" pelo mundo do cinema. O terceiro ato no entanto assume um Plot Twist interessante, mas não suficiente para salvar da "meia boca"

O elemento de Shooter do jogo funciona muito bem, a dificuldade que joguei foi "Difícil" e era bem equilibrada e justa, além disso, a I.A dos inimigos é boa. Infelizmente, as partes de plataforma são mal feitas e maçantes. O jogo também peca nas partes de "puzzle", sendo todos óbvios e chatos.

O jogo também perde pontos em sua ambientação, por mais que os gráficos sejam bons para a época, o tema de "floresta" fica repetitivo e parece que o jogador nunca saiu do mesmo lugar.

Esses elementos criam um jogo que tem bons elementos como um shooter, mas possui história sem sal e previsível (com uma clara "referência" de Indiana Jones no final), momentos maçantes de plataforma, ambiente repetitivo e puzzles fraquíssimos.

Nota final: 6.0

I've had a scratched copy for the PS3 which made me very sad cause i thought Uncharted 2 and 3 were very fun games but with the arrival of the Nathan Drake collection for free, i finally was able to play it and it was kinda weak.

First of all, this game feels like a beefed up PS2 game which i quite like to be honest, Nathan moves and feels like he came straight up from Gun for the PS2. However, this game does show it's place in the awkward transition from the previous generation of consoles to the PS3. The shooting is not nearly as satisfying (with some weapons) as other games from the same generation with the enemies often acting indifferent to your shooting, the AI sometimes feel like they're bullet sponges which is weird because they're supposed to be just regular old dudes. There's a certain type of enemy that comes in the late game that is actually fun to shoot at but when they're shot with automatic weapons their animations start to jank a little bit. Though using stuff like revolvers, sniper rifles and shotguns is really fun since the characters ragdoll and often fly across the area. 

The climbing sections in this game can go from completely obvious and basically plays itself to somewhat bullshit but they are consistently the weakest part of the game. The puzzles in this are so easy you don't really have to think to do them. But without a doubt, the worst part of the game are the jet ski segments, there's only a couple of them but the jet ski handles so stiffly and you ride it through some very slim areas that have barrels that explode the moment you touch them basically insta killing you. There's also a bunch of enemies shooting at you but if you wanna shoot back, you will have to stop basically making you a still target to a bunch of enemies. Thankfully it's only brought up twice and then you're done but those two parts are really really bad.

The story is quite simple and if we're being honest, really weak BUT the characters are so fun with such a great chemistry that you don't really mind it. Drake is a more playful Han Solo, Sully is an experienced adventurer that talks like he's always a little bit tipsy and Elena at first glance, seems like the damsel in distress (which in this game is actually S P O I L E R sully) , but we quickly learn that she doesn't mind getting her hands dirty, often disobeying Drake's orders and doing things her own way. The character's interactions are so fun and they feel very organic. The only weak part are the villains, which we only get to interact with them for a few moments and they do a little plot twist that doesn't really work because we don't really know or care about them.

Overall, somewhat disappointing. The graphics are beautiful, the characters are interesting and the movement is fun, but with a somewhat inconsistent shooting, lacking any intriguing villains, puzzles that basically do themselves and some very very weak segments, it's hard to recommend it nowadays. Maybe a great showcase of what the PS3 could do at its' time, but since then we've gotten infinitely improved sequels that overshadow any of this game's achievements and it's more of a novelty nowadays. 

5/10

that was a hell of a fun game. A few mechanics I kinda hated (I never wanna deal with jet skis again), but the story was solid + it's so pretty too
