The plot is hard to sumarize without spoiling too much but essentially you take the role of Chloe who is back in India hunting after a treasure called the horn of Ganesha and has hired Nadine to help her who after Uncharted 4 is a little down on her luck and leapt at the chance for the money. Unfortunately for them India is in the middle of a civil war so things of course are not going to be easy.
I really liked the story, it allows for more depth for these side characters while at the same time having some good twists and moments both funny and emotional at times. The characters play really well off each other and the voice acting is superb throughout with both Claudia Black and Laura Bailey reprising their roles as Chloe and Nadine respectively. Claudia Black especially nails it as Chloe with some excellent subtle nuances in several of the cutscenes really standing out.
For the gameplay if you haven't played an Uncharted game before (and I recommend you do with either the first three games released in the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection or at a push leap in with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End ) then what you need to know is they are third person adventure games with cover based shooting, light platforming and light puzzling. The combat has a good variety of weapons such as handguns, grenades, assault rifles and rocket launchers and has an incredibly smooth melee combat system that is very cinematic. My only gripe with the controls are that roll and take cover are still the same button which has been a problem to me for like ten years where trying to roll through a doorway will latch you onto the nearest wall and get you killed. How has this not been fixed by now?
When you aren't fighting you are exploring old ruins or jungles. The art design for the levels cannot be understated but at times I just stopped and stared, Uncharted The Lost Legacy looks absolutely amazing. Everything about the game from the particles effects, lighting and textures on top of the art design is stunning. The developer Naughty Dog just seem far ahead of almost everyone else when it comes to visuals, seriously impressive. The ruins sometimes have ancient puzzles to beat to progress. While certainly not brain taxing they are a little bit of a step up from previous games in design and quality. I would like to see more variety or difficulty but I enjoyed them for the most part.
Despite being a shorter game released at a budget price there is a surprising amount of content here, my first playthrough took me about eight and a half hours but I was looking around everywhere for hidden treasures and often just enjoying the view. If you rush through it you could beat it in six hours I should think. I would put it akin to the original Uncharted in length. It also comes with Uncharted 4's multiplayer on disc as well as the recent co-op survival mode you can play with both Lost Legacy and Uncharted 4 players which is a nice touch. Getting the platinum, finding all optional conversations and treasures are also nice reasons to replay the story. All this at a launch price of £25? Fantastic value.
In conclusion, this is a great game. If you like Uncharted and want something more then this is perfect for you. It fits in well after the previous games, looks and sounds amazing and is great value for money content wise in my opinion. I would happily buy a Lost Legacy 2 starring Chloe and Nadine if Naughty Dog were inclined to make it.
+ Chloe and Nadine are great characters with an evolving relationship.
+ Excellent voice acting and music.
+ The visuals and art are outstanding.
+ Fantastic value for money.
- Roll and take cover are the same button still. Why?
Following up Uncharted 4 A Thief's End, is a pretty tall order and I was aware that this game was more of a spin off rather than a full Uncharted game. But this does not mean that it is a lesser experience. The Lost Legacy is a stunning addition in it's own right. The graphics are beautiful really stunning as we've come to expect since Uncharted 4 and the gameplay is all there. It's another great adventure with two important distinctions. 1. Different principle characters, Nathan Drake is retired and the focus throughout the game is squarely on Chloe and Nadine and this works brilliantly. 2. The game is shorter than the others and is based entirely in India.
All the controls are familiar so there is a very easy learning curve here. Shooting, reloading, rope swings and jumping are all the same as before so it's easy for the muscle memory to get you right into the game. The story is solid and builds rapidly into some quick fire action. There is a great balance of action and exploration. None of the puzzles are too challenging. If anything one criticism is that a few puzzles of a more challenging nature could have added to the mix a little. But it keeps the game flowing as the story progresses. At every turn there is something new and impressive to behold. Making for a gaming experience that is a real joy. A one point in the later levels I found myself experiencing the sense of wonder that I last felt many years ago when discovering some of the beautiful level design in the very first Tomb Raider game. For a while I just wanted to sit back and take in the gorgeous level design and beautiful artistry on show.
The enemies are as before not so intelligent but they do go and search for you when spotted. And the character control is fluid with the same small occasional trip ups as before but this is superficial criticism. The stealth element of the gameplay is slightly more apparent which is nice as you can challenge yourself to avoid a full on fire fight and progress through a level stealthily. There is a big hidden extra in the middle part of the game that makes for a very satisfying additional component and I would have liked to have seen a few more sub plot/items like that, but that really is nit-picking.
The game took me 7h 40m to complete at the first go, so quite a bit shorter that the other Uncharted games but it was worth every penny. It's priced just perfectly for the experience you get and is a fantastic new addition. I really hope that Naughty Dog decide to make more spin off's like The Lost Legacy. It's a barrel of fun and a sweet surprise. Definitely going to get played over again and again.
I also love the added bonus of Jak & Daxter as a downloadable bonus. I loved that game on PS2.
Definitely worth buying to go along with the previous games in the series.
When Uncharted the Lost Legacy was announced, I knew I'd buy it. However, I was disappointed by the choice of characters selected to lead this story - yes I liked Chloe in U2, but she wasn't my favourite character... and Nadine from U4 was just annoying! I'm happy to stand corrected and say that this was absolutely the correct choice for this game - the voice acting is superb and the script is better than most movies - this is Naughty Dog at their absolute best, in fact, whilst shorter than U4, I have to say that this is my favourite Uncharted game.
If I was to criticise one thing, it would be the invisible barriers in certain places - don't get me wrong, for a linear game, this certainly makes you feel like you have a whole load of freedom, however, if you love GTA or Assassins Creed, you might find it frustrating that you cannot climb everywhere or anywhere. That being said, this game wouldn't work with that level of freedom, but I do think the animation of the character needs to be changed as they look a bit of a donut jumping on the spot when they can't climb.
My hope is that all this games goodness spills over into the Last of Us 2, as I didn't think they would be able to improve upon the first one, however, I now realise that Naught Dog can do anything!
For those of you who love to get 100% in your trophies (as I do) then you should know that there are 50 available and they offer enough of a challenge that multiple play-throughs are recommended (which is no chore given how good this game is) and all are achievable (even for an average gamer like me).
Genre: Action/ Adventure
- Stunning Graphics.
- Varied Gameplay

In order to recover a fabled ancient Indian artefact & keep it out of the hands of a ruthless war profiteer, Chloe Frazer must enlist the aid of renowned mercenary Nadine Ross (from Uncharted 4: A Thief's End). Venturing deep into Indias Western Ghats mountain range, Chloe & Nadine must learn to work together to unearth the artefact & fight their way through fierce opposition to prevent the region from falling into chaos.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a spin off adventure which takes place after Uncharted 4 where you play as Drakes former love interest & explorer Chloe Frazer who teams up with mercenary for hire Nadine Ross to steal the legendary tusk of Ganesh from falling into the hands of a mad man named Asav.
The Lost Legacy features the same level of quality that we’ve come to expect from the series & developers as Naughty Dog deliver the usual high quality gameplay by mixing combat, shootouts & car chases with climbing, swinging & puzzle solving, yes it's more of the same & could be repetitive for some gamers but for those who love the Uncharted series like me will be fully immersed in the storyline of this excellent game.
The characters of Chloe & Nadine shine as the game’s leads who together share a great chemistry & the inclusion of Samuel Drake towards the latter stages of the game brings great drama which puts there new partnership to the test as the trio battle against a hostile army in this high stakes action adventure.
The graphics are crisp & clear featuring beautiful landscapes, the voice cast including Claudia Black, Laura Bailey & the legendary Troy Baker each inject a sense of charm & likeablity to these characters while the gameplay is both varied & fun, this is a easy pick up & play gaming experience while the inclusion of more puzzles is a welcome inclusion with one particular tricky puzzle which had me cursing obscenities at the screen while the action packed exciting finale on-board a moving train could be straight out of a Die-Hard movie.
In fact the only gripe I had was the length of the main campaign which features only 10 chapters which I completed in just under 10 hours & I found most of the hidden treasure on my first playthrough, I understand this is a spin off game & i wasn't expecting it to be as big as Uncharted 4 but I felt it needed perhaps another 5 chapters to do the game justice which would've added about another 5 hours to the main story & given gamers a bit more value for money.
Overall, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a fun, exciting action packed spin off that keeps up the quality of previous Uncharted games which hopefully will be the start of a series of spin off games for these characters just perhaps next time Naughty Dog could consider adding a longer campaigning experience.
Graphics are amazing as always and there are a few parts that you do stop and gaze at.
In this next chapter you play as Chloe Frazer, who has partnered up with Nadine Ross. Yes, same woman you were kicking in the previous game. And of course you are hunting for hidden treasure. The game takes place in India however and you get to explore forests and temples like every uncharted game. It takes place after uncharted 4 however I'm not very sure how long after.
You are met with unique puzzles that are not very difficult but fun to do.
Gameplay is exactly like uncharted 4 so no need to learn new controls. Chloe however does have a different fighting style to Nathan and I did catch my self from saying "Badass!" Everyso often as you don't get many women leading characters for this type of genre (apart from tomb raider but this game beats them in my opinion).
This game lets the player get to know Chloe a lot better then in Uncharted 2. It gives you a quick speech about what happened to her when she was younger (explaining her accent at last!) and you get to see her personality. You also see a funny / more human side to Nadine.
I did have apart of the game that lagged really badly that I do regret to say! Right near the end of the game there are many explosions and moving people/ vehicles and I'm not sure if my PlayStation just gave up because I was playing to long (about 4 hours...probably more....) or if it was the game. The dialogue/ sound was fine just it was very slow and Chloe's hair decided to dance on her head. It's been out what two days since release? What game doesn't have something wrong on release?
Apart from that (and that the uncharted theme wasn't played at the end) the game was amazing and I would highly reccomend for everyone to try it.
Yes its strange not playing as Drake but its just as visually amazing and story grabs within first 2 mins
Naughty dog never fails to let me down
If you loved and enjoyed the uncharted serise you will love this exstension :)
Instead the game protagonist this time around is Chloe Frazer (who featured as one of Drake's companion treasure hunters in Uncharted II and Uncharted III). Chloe is funny, brave, educated, athletic and relatable - very reminiscent of Lara Croft - so if you've never played uncharted before but are a fan of tomb raider, this might fit you.
Chloe has hired ex-merc and former and former Uncharted 4 antagonist Nadine Ross to help her find a legendary artefact in India that her father had died looking for. The two have something of a strange chemistry with each other which works rather well and makes Nadine more relatable as her story was fairly vague previously. For the first time we get to know Chloe's back story and get to really know her too.
The gameplay features the usual mix of climbing, gunplay, stealth, logic and puzzle solving and exploring you find in Uncharted games, and for the first time ever, this Uncharted game features a completely open map for the entire game as opposed to the slightly linear pre-determined sets of the previous games (so you can decide pretty much which place to go exploring first and can keep exploring until the bitter end as there's a ton of collectibles to find).
A lot of gamers claim to be able to complete this in about four to six hours but I spent days on it just really enjoying the gorgeous scenery, the fun puzzles and the banter between Chloe and Nadine. There's also an appearance from Nathan Drake's brother later.
The story is easy to follow and the start is quite compelling as we begin in a war torn city and the game really makes you notice and experience how it feels to be in the middle of bombs going off and random gunshots in the night.
All in all, I think this is proof Naughty Dog are well capable of continuing the franchise without its main Protagonist - the heart of the game is still there (although some complain there wasn't enough innovation in gameplay).
I hope there's more games and I hope to see Chloe and Nadine return as well as some returning faces like Charlie Cutter and good old Sully.
Stacked alongside some other notable recent sequels/DLC’s (I’m looking at you Osiris) this sets the bar, building on the original in fun and unique ways whilst taking nothing away and keeping the feel of the series. You know it, hats off to Naughty Dog – you smashed it guys.
Chloe and Nadine make great stand ins for the main-series protagonists. I found myself warming to Nadine, now seeking a new direction after the events of Uncharted 4. Chloe has more than enough sass and wit to rival Nate's humorous one-liners, and it was interesting to get her take on things having not seen what she's been up to since the events of Uncharted 3. Both are genuine characters in their own rights, and I would love to spend time with them again if Sony or Naughty Dog ever revisit the series.
Gameplay-wise, it is essentially more Uncharted 4. The introduction of the series' first optional side-quest gave you something else to do in the open-world part of the game, and had a very worthwhile reward at the end of it. Overall though, the satisfying Uncharted loop of exploration/combat/climbing/puzzle/repeat is here in full force.
Sure, the game is shorter than a full Uncharted game but then the price of entry is lower this time. To me, it was worth every penny. A PS4 must-have.
1. An extension of the ideas and mechanics from the first 4 Uncharted games
2. A shorter story mode reflected in the price
3. An attempt by Naughty Dog to satisfy the appetites of fans for a bit more gameplay
What it is not ..
1. A complete large scale game (although all it's chapters are as satisfying and exciting as any gone before)
2. Packed with new ideas (many of your favourite activities and encounters are here)
3. Original and innovative (although there are lots of lovely touches)
4. Emotionally involving in the way that the previous 4 games are
So, if you want more of the classic Uncharted experience, go for it. If not, wait for the next full game ( although much as this reviewer loves the series it may have run its course ).
