3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing..., 5 Jan. 2014
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception: Game of the Year (PS3) (Video Game)
I thought Uncharted was a brilliant game. Challenging and a blast to play on harder difficulty settings. The trophy system added to the mix to give a final product that ranks in my favourite PS3 games so far (Fallout 3 and Dead Space are the other two). Uncharted 2 was also good but was too reliant on large-scale cinematic set pieces rather than gameplay.

And so to Uncharted 3 which I found hugely disappointing. Playing it felt more like you were involved in an interactive movie with the odd fight thrown in to keep players happy than a well thought out game. Skip the cut scenes and it is a pretty short game. At certain points in the game you are restricted in what you can do (particularly in the desert) which became pretty frustrating on the third playthrough. Playing through on normal difficulty was, at times, actually quite challenging and I had doubts that I would be able to complete the game on crushing difficulty but once I had learned the game dynamics crushing was actually a breeze (except for the ship levels which were nasty). The trophy system was pretty much identical to the previous games and quickly became a chore rather than a challenge.

In summary, Uncharted 3 is more of the same but veering more towards interactive movie than action game. The new element ie. the brawling system was a failure and added nothing to the core gameplay which remains solid. Overall I was disappointed with this installment.
