I would like to start with my positives for the game. The story is very nice. Uncharted is basically the male version of Tomb Raider, but instead looks to deliver a more cinematic action-adventure experience, akin to say Indiana Jones than say Tomb Raider. Yet still separates itself with its characters. The main protagonist, Nathan Drake, is not something you really see much. He is certainly a smooth talker like Indiana Jones, but when it comes to appearance is honestly just a very average and basic guy. He is not some big buff, good looking hero. He is just a wisecracking young man. It is an interesting step where you see a lot of video games with just these over the top lead characters and then had Uncharted with its fairly simple, but memorable characters like Drake himself, Elena, and Sully. The antagonists were not fairly memorable and were just your typical villains. Now the game sets Nathan looking for El Dorado, the legendary city of gold. This brings the game to a fairly interesting island location. For a game that is fairly old now, the graphics I felt still held up considering I had been playing on current gen consoles mostly throughout the last couple years. Uncharted certainly delivered on a great story and pretty game.
Now my main issue with game is the game play itself. I was honestly expecting more platforming, but felt like I spent most of my time shooting bad guys. This is where the game felt dated to me, I know the game is about the cinematic experience more, but the game play made getting through this game a pain sometimes. The driving and shooting mechanics on the jet ski were just odd. I played through on normal and felt that the amount of bullets the enemies took were just ridiculous as well. From a logical stand point, it makes no sense that a guy wearing only a tank top and pants could survive 5 shots from a pistol and then get killed from 5 punches instead. I just felt the controls in general weren't very tight and refined. Now, the platforming sections were actually fairly good though and fun. I wouldn't say the game was hard (I was on normal), but at times it just get fairly ridiculous and frustrating. Looking forward to see how Uncharted 2 improves on all this.
So all in all, Uncharted Drake's Fortune is a very good game. I definitely feel like its a must play title and Naughty Dog did an excellent job with game. The story is great, the protagonist characters are great, and the locale and graphics are nice considering the age of the game. As I said, the game play felt dated and got fairly frustrating (mainly just the combat sections), but the platforming parts were done well, the game just could have used more platforming and less shooting. This a great game and definitely recommend it to anyone who has a PS3 or has a PS4 and can get the Uncharted Collection. Give this game a try!
The story was your typical "follow the clues, dead end, wait no follow another clue, dead end etc. etc. etc....TREASURE!!" story. But then again if you know anything about this series that is the general jist of the game. There were some twists and turns though and that kept me engaged. There were quite a few plot wholes though but I guess I shouldn't expect hollywood quality in a video game (why is it that every time I go through heck in this game to get somewhere, that dumb rich dude beats me to it? C'mon man). However, the story will keep you going and won't run dry.
Drake was a good main character. He got on my nerves at first but he grew on me. The rest of his comrades were the stereotypical co-stars. Girl that acts tough but needs Drake in the end. Old resourceful guy that somehow is immortal. The villains were your typical villains too. Nothing really bad but nothing outstanding either.
This is where the game really shines. The gameplay was really fun. From figuring out how to scale walls to jumping across chandeliers. It really kept you going. Only thing that wasn't perfect about it was the shooting. Wasn't really realistic but overall still great.
Overall definitely worth a playthrough.
