Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception review
by Arta

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.
