Uncharted 3 Review: Drake’s just deserts

As soon as the third entry from the stellar Naughty Dog team fires up, any questions or doubts you may have had about the experience they have crafted for you disappears. Much like the intros for the previous titles, you are dropped into a situation that is already unfolding and getting very tense. It is that design choice that has made the appeal so strong for the series. You don't feel as if you are seeing the start of a crafted story, but more like you are getting a third person view into drake's life. That is a magic, created by strong story telling methods, characters that can be related to, and the subtle chemistry that can be felt among the characters instead of having the nuances of the relationships forced upon the gamer.

Uncharted 3

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.

White Knight Chronicles 2

White Knight Chronicles II, developed by Level-5 exclusively for the PlayStation 3, is a throwback to Japanese styled role-playing games of old, reminiscent of early Final Fantasy games. The story, featuring your typical group of good characters vs. an empire of evil, serves as the backdrop for this cross between a mix of the action role-playing game genre and the turn-based role-playing game genre. In battle, you are free to move your character around but cannot attack until your action meter is full; at first, this system takes a bit of time to get used to but ultimately becomes second nature. To complement this system is the variety of customization in battling: there are over eight different weapon classes with over 50 skills to master in each class. The customization also extends to character creation, with many options to choose from.

Despite being a sequel, Uncharted 2, releasing exclusively on the PlayStation 3, does not require any previous knowledge of the series. While certain events in the first game are alluded to, and a few past characters pop up from time to time, newcomers can jump straight into Uncharted 2. This is good as Uncharted 2 takes everything Naughty Dog learned from the first game and adds an extra layer of polish, action and story line. In Uncharted 2, treasure hunter Nathan Drake is again searching for a long forgotten treasure; Marco Polo’s lost ships, containing a vast amount of riches. Over the course of the adventure, Nathan will travel to many exotic locations such as Istanbul, Borneo and Nepal.
