Uncharted 3 is an epic thrill ride action adventure game that kept me entertained throughout the entire game. The storyline is excellent, the characters developed throughout the story & the game play was well done. I love the “trigger” effect in games, and Uncharted was always good at that.

The graphics are amazing, every detail is brilliant.

The beginning of the game is fantastic, I loved that they took you back to Drake’s childhood and gave history between him and Sully and what started this adventure.

There were twists and turns in the middle and end. Every time I finished a chapter I didn’t want to stop, I wanted to keep going and continue on the story. Uncharted is excellent for it’s cinematics. Makes sense why they’re making an Uncharted movie, which I cannot wait to see. Plus Nathan Drake is pretty easy on the eyes hey ladies? 😉

What made me laugh however was whenever Drake was stagnate, he always looks so mad, like an angry ape man. Lol.

The combat style I thought could have been better. I enjoyed melee fighting much more in Batman Arkham Asylum & Arkham City. The melee style in this game falls a bit flat, and its too simple. What it stayed good at was the classic gun fights. Collecting bigger, more bad ass weapons, hellz yeah! The fights did get a little repetitive at times, but its always fun to strategize how you’re going to blow the snot out of your enemies 🙂

The desert chapter kind of stands out because its the only chapter in the game without any intense action going on, which was a nice break to “reflect” on the story so far.

It’s hard to say what my favourite chapter was because I liked them all the same. Each one had its uniqueness and gave that sense of urgency and excitement. It really felt like an interactive movie most of the time.

The puzzles I thought were well done, some of them gave a challenge but they weren’t too hard either. I could still have fun figuring them out without getting too frustrated. I felt there was a nice balance between action, puzzles and climbing/shooting. This is familiar to the first two games as well. It makes me think how far these games have come, going back to the very first Prince of Persia games, which had a similar game play style.

The ending I thought could have used a bit improvement, they could have expanded on a few things because it felt it was a bit rushed. There are some questions left unanswered and a bit more closure would have been nice. I don’t want to give any spoilers so I won’t say anymore. I think one more chapter thrown in there to tie up loose ends would have been perfect. But with that said, perhaps there’s room for an Uncharted 4? I mean, this can’t be it for Nathan Drake can it?

There was one part near the end that completely felt like an Indiana Jones rip-off, and when you play that part, you’ll know what it is 🙂

The online multi-player part of this game is fun. You can play with friends or just online campaign with others. I do not like playing in split screen though so I didn’t choose that. The online is a nice addition to the game and it keeps the replay factor there. But did I enjoy getting my head blown off by internet Rambo’s with too much time on their hands? No.. I did not. I better stick to story mode lol :-p

I love the whole Uncharted series – 1 – 3. If you own a PS3 I would highly recommend playing them all. I would play them all again. I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. Well done Naughty Dog!

I’m giving it a 9/10.

  1. The cut scenes are totally breathtaking! I didn’t want to play the game, rather just watch what was happening.

    I still find the controls for Playstation very different than xbox and it requires more movements. I’ve only played the intro of Uncharted 3 but your review makes me want to continue playing it!!

    Do I need to play the first 2 in order to grasp the whole story of the 3rd?

    • If u have the first 2 games I would definately recommend playing them in order so you can see how the characters develop & the relationships between each other change. For the story itself it’s not totally necessary so its up to you
