The Uncharted series by Crash Bandicoot masterminds, Naughty Dog, has turned into a flagship title for the Playstation 3 after the first two titles in the series were widely praised by critics and the public alike. With Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception now here, the developers are showing off what the Playstation 3 is really capable of.Blending Tomb Raider with Indiana Jones along with adding its own unique style, the Uncharted series is filled with fast paced action, cinematic adventures and witty one liners as you follow the adventures of Nathan Drake across the globe. Although at times it is easy to forget Uncharted 3 is, in fact, a game and not a film, you cannot deny the effort that has clearly been pumped into this franchise.
With you off this time around the world looking for the Atlantis of the Sands, players get to see more of Drake and a lot more backstory than before, focusing on characters and their motives a whole lot more. With red herrings a plenty, plot twists, turns and shocks, it is one of the most engaging and inspiring narratives on Playstation let alone in the series.On a visual level, Uncharted 3 is outstanding. A pure marvel to look at and damn is it detailed. Showing off with bustling crowds in cities to the vastness of a ship graveyard, not to mention the desert areas with the attention to detail with specs of sand, from start to finish Uncharted 3 is beautiful. It really shows the power of the Playstation 3.
Once again, voice acting is superb even if there are the “typical” English accents thrown in to represent us Brits. Either really posh or Cockney…apparently there is no middle ground? Either way, the script and dialogue are perfect, filled with one liners, personalisation and feeling – making Uncharted 3 one of the most engaging games I have actually played, not bad for a game that is not a Role Playing Game.
