5.0 out of 5 stars This is more like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 Dec 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow ... finally a game for my PS3 that doesn't disappoint. Since getting my PS3 a couple of months ago there were 3 games that I was really looking forward to, Ratchet and Clank future, Uncharted and GTA IV, I enjoyed Ratchet but it was too short and too easy and I felt slightly disappointed upon completing it, GTA IV disappointed just because of the constant delays ... BUT Uncharted:Drake's fortune is absolutely fantastic, I probably finished the game in about 10-12 hours but these were the most enjoyable 10-12 hours yet on my PS3, the storyline, for a change in a videogame, is engrossing and has plenty of twists and turns so as much as you want to stop playing and go to bed you just can't put the controller down because you need to know what happens next. Parts of this game can be very difficult but never frustratingly so, it's more a case of you fail once so you try a different tactic until you eventually find something that works.
The first thing I did upon completing this game was start a new game straight away on the next difficulty setting and i'm now trying to find all the hidden treasure and earn all the medals to unlock some pretty cool rewards, of course there's your standard rewards such as concept art and macking of docs but then there's cool stuff like one shot kills and unlimited ammo to unlock, I can't wait to replay this game with them 2 active just to see how much easier it is to complete, I think i'll try it on the hardest difficulty setting then.
If there were more games like this on the PS3 then i'd urge everyone to go out and get a PS3 but for now I still think it's best to wait until next year when the great games really start coming and then get a PS3 with Uncharted as your first choice of game to play.
Very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars An eye-opener 14 May 2008
By Robin
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd waited until the HD-DVD and Blu-Ray war had been decided before buying the PS3, and based on reviews here bought Drake's Fortune to go with it. Everyone who has described it as visually stunning is spot on; it justified buying the PS3.

The story line is good, character movement is excellent, water effects superb. When Nate emerges from water, his clothes are wet, branches move in the wind, rocks and walls are algae stained. The attention to detail is amazing.

Now why only 4 stars? Firstly, it is a linear game, along the lines of Tomb Raider. I do like the ability to go where I want whenever I want (like GTA). Also, as has been previously mentioned, the puzzles aren't exactly brain teasers, and in some way the game reminds me more of going for a weekend paintballing trip. The game consists of one skirmish after another, not that these aren't fun, but the balance of the game falls heavily on the fighting rather than puzzle solving.

... and there's the annoying trend encountered in all linear games of this ilk. Why is it that having finally opened the secret door that's remained hidden for countless centuries, do you get shot at 5 minutes later by a host of enemies who couldn't have got past you?

Now I work for a living and have a family, so don't have hours each day to spend gaming, so it has to be said that this game is ideal for someone in that position. If you don't want to spend hours getting your skill levels up a notch, but want something you can dive into for half an hour, then this is ideal. The auto save is mostly good (it usually, but not always returns you to a recent point when you get killed), meaning you don't have to play through 20 minutes of game simply because your finger slipped on a button.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best PS3 exclusive so far 20 Jan 2008
By Stevie G VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite reading solid reviews, the concept of Uncharted looked very stale (treasure hunting, pirates etc). In addition, every Sony release since Motorstorm has been a huge waste of time. Therefore, I was convinced I'd be disappointed with this. However, Uncharted turned out quite the opposite and is without doubt the best PS3 exclusive to date. The characters are very likeable (in particular Drake, far from the clichés they first appear as). Graphics are another high point, each section is incredibly detailed. Character animation falls just short of Assassins Creed, but not by much. However, Uncharted is a far superior game overall. Naughty Dog has done very well to provide variety to a game set on just one island; a Nazi U Boat encountered early on being a typical example.

Gears of War has obviously been an influence on this game. Even the way enemies spill blood is reminiscent of Gears. By far the best element borrowed is the cover system, which works incredibly well. As do the platforming sections, familiar to anyone who has played Prince of Persia. Other games that came to mind when playing Uncharted were Resident Evil 4, Tomb Raider and Far Cry.
Where Uncharted succeeds with this cheeky plagiarism is that it takes the finer elements from these titles and combines them to create an extremely enjoyable game. Although nothing feels particularly new, its mechanics are refined to the point where it's almost perfect.
One final point that made me admire Uncharted was how it played out. The ending doesnt finish on a cliff-hanger and neither does it set up a sequel. Uncharted actually has a conclusion, which may seem like a small point, but can be infuriating. Assassins Creed, Ratchet & Clank and countless others take note.
