uncharted3

 

Uncharted 3, released exclusively for the PlayStation 3, again follows the adventures of Nathan Drake, famous treasure hunter, as he once again seeks not just buried treasure, but a buried city: Iram of the Pillars. For this outing, Nathan is joined by his good friend and father figure Victor Sullivan, who has also appeared in every Uncharted game to date. Like Uncharted 2, you needn’t play past games in the series to enjoy Uncharted 3; while it would help to flesh out the characters, it isn’t required to fully enjoy this game. Uncharted 3 not only deals with present day adventuring, but also deals with Nathan Drake’s past in the form of flashbacks, as many questions about him are finally answered. Fans can expect to see Chloe and Elena return as well along with a few new faces.

If you thought the set piece involving the train in Uncharted 2 was amazing, prepare to be blown away in Uncharted 3. Nathan Drake will find himself looking to escape a ship that is sinking, fighting his way through a burning building and, in one particular harrowing sequence, fighting his way through a plane that is rapidly descending to the desert below. Uncharted 3 once again combines platforming elements with third person gunplay, distributing them equally throughout the adventure.

Much can be said about the graphics in Uncharted 3 and how it captures the tiniest details needed for true immersion. Nathan leaves footprints in the sand when he walks, grains of sand stick to his hair and clothes as he rolls through it and water only gets his clothes wet where it touches them.

Like Uncharted 2 before it, when the single player is over the action lives on in multiplayer. Both competitive and co-operative online modes are present in Uncharted 3, featuring more maps, characters and game modes than the previous game.

Releasing November 1st, 2011, Uncharted 3 is shaping up to be not only one of developer Naughty Dog’s best games but one of the best PlayStation 3 games to be released. The story, action and presentation combine to create one of the classics of this console generation.
