While Uncharted 3's Graphics are no doubt the best I have seen so far on the PS3 as some enviourments are simply "WOW" the story was slightly disappointing, To start off the places you go to in the game I feel always have some copied feel where in one level there are thousands of spiders chasing you and to back them off you, you have to use a torch (No doubt copied from The Mummy Movie and the scarabs)
Then you have other levels that feel like they were copied from the previous 2 games like a city collapsing, (Uncharted 2 Ending)
Then moving onto the Villians, While I confess the devs do a great job at making the Villains Interesting by showing you events that happened years before can be quite good, as other baddies in the previous games arnt that interesting. The problem with Uncharted 3's is they don't feel threatening enough. As throughout the game it feels that although they are trying to kill the main character by means of thugs, They play around allot with him by playing mind games and turning people against each other by means of Arrows/Darts that make them zombies if you will to them... Where as in the previous games you could tell the baddies tried everything they could to get rid of you.
But other than thisthe story picks off somepoint after the last one and is great, especially the parts where you play as young drake and learn how he came to know sully and about drakes past.
If your a Uncharted fan you will love this no doubt. but I just recommend you don't pay to much if you can as the game is quite short for players who have finished the previous ones easily
As for the story, there is one twist which I will not spoil, suffice to say that the story is very good. One could easily think that DRake had run out of steam prior to this release, but that is not the case.
I haven't yet downloaded any extras and not played online so can't comment on that.
One gripe I have and is mentioned above, is the longevity of the campaign. Programmers seem to think that everyone wants to play online, not so. However, I guess it is easier to program for that scene rather that campaign.
Is Uncharted worth the money? If you want to play online as well as campaign, then yes, I suppose it is, but the people like me, who prefer campaign, then no. I could have rented the game and finished it quite quickly.
The biggest problem for those like me is going to be the PS4, which I will not buy as it would appear that second hand games and rental shops will not be available.
The narrative here takes a more serious tone and really highlights the isolation of Nathan Drake on his adventure. This time around, the bad guys are searching for a lost city in the sands of immeasurable wealth. Nathan Drake and his team go in search of it to prevent it falling into the wrong hands. This time, as the dangers are increased and learning from the cost of the previous adventures, his friends ask him is he really doing this for the right reasons. I’m glad they touched on this because the crew barely escaped with their lives last time, so to embark on this journey without at least questioning if it is worth it would be unrealistic. Two thirds through the game, he is separated from his crew and dumped in the middle of the desert. This is a truly stunning part of the game as Nathan Drake is in a desperate situation here and is fighting for his life. Upon the conclusion, fans will be left satisfied by the adventure they have undergone in and a complete story arc that leaves no open endings.
The visuals have taken a step up from the last title, if that was even possible. Naughty Dog have consistently displayed their graphical prowess and ability to squeeze every ounce of power out of the aging console. This surely is the pinnacle of graphical excellence on the PS3, second only to PC games. As Nathan Drake staggers through the desert, sand dripping off his clothes and hair, the sand sparkles and the player is left dumb struck in awe at the level of minute detail on show here. I literally had to stop and stare a few times. My belief was suspended when I was exploring a dilapidated, decaying French chateau which nature has started to reclaim. Then for it to be set ablaze while you must escape, my jaw hit the floor at how visceral and real it all looked. As the flames licked up the wall and the whole world became an explosion of colour, I thought to myself, this is why I love gaming. The whole game is one indulgent visual feast for the eyes as even the fibres on his top are all very detailed. Another point I want to touch on is the lighting in this game. The lighting is incredible, the sun bleached streets of an Islamic town left me speechless. The environments in this game are many and varied and each time, the lighting is spot on.
The Uncharted series is known for its set pieces and this game does not disappoint. There are many spectacles for the player to gawp at from escaping a burning chateau, to escaping a sinking hotel ship and even a gunfight on a plane where the engines have cut out. I don’t know what black magic the folks over at Naughty Dog have employed, but this is one of the most fluid and natural looking games I have ever seen. The way Nathan Drake stumbles across sand or even just walking; it all looks natural and realistic. The game strikes a perfect balance of gun fighting, to platforming and puzzle solving; they all flow very easily from each other. Some critics say that this game is incredibly linear and to have all these impressive backdrops that are not explorable is a failure of the game. I disagree and would counter that argument by saying, if it were any less linear, they wouldn’t have been able to put that much detail into the world and would have watered down the experience.
In summary then this game is the third instalment in one of the most incredible gaming trilogies ever created. The game is beautifully written and realised and it is a joy to play through the 12 hour campaign. The only flaw is that, again, sometimes it was hard to get Nathan Drake to stick to the correct piece of cover and sometimes he would pop out of cover for no reason. This minor gripe pales in comparison to the masterpiece that is Uncharted 3. This title is the reason I play games, I can just sit down to a great story with great presentation and be completely absorbed and enthralled, this one is unmissable.
