Maybe I was a little late to the party
on 23 July 2013
I have always heard great things of the Uncharted series but never got the opportunity to play one of the games because I didn't own a PS3 until recently. I decided to pick one up and play through some of their great exclusives before the release of the PS4 in the winter. Now I've always been a fan of action/adventure games so I thought I would start with Uncharted.
I was pretty impressed by Uncharted and it does a lot of the things that make a game great. Good story, full characters and decent gameplay however when I compare this to recent games it just doesn't hold up. In fairness this game is nearly 6 years old and some recent games (The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite) are absolute masterpieces and it seems unfair to compare them but all the while I was playing I was aware this was quite a few steps behind these games and it impacted my play because it stopped me being engrossed in the world.
However for £10 you can't go wrong if you want a 3rd person shooter with an entertaining story.
