If what you're looking for is "video game Indiana Jones" then this game will satisfy
17 February 2015 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Back a couple of months when I first got my PS3 I decided to begin playing The Last Of Us and I have the opinion so far of "Okay, there's drama and then there's beating me over the head with a lead pipe with barb wire tied around it asking me to feel something for the characters" so I instead decided to buy another game that got a lot of love on the console - Uncharted and oh boy, this is by far the better game.

The plot is that the descendant of Sir Francis Drake (kudos for that history lesson guys) uncovers his ocean grave with a reporter, Elena Fisher and Nathan Drake, knowing that his ancestor's grave is empty only with the clues to his last (and most valuable) treasure. Helped by his partner in treasure hunting - Sully All of them (well Elena rejoins them after she is abandoned to help uncover the story) they are on their way to find El Dorado, despite other multiple parties ready and prepared to get their hands on the treasure first.

Okay, the story is basic, I know but it is actually well told as a light hearted adventure with the scrapings of drama thrown in as well and for the most part it actually works well, I'd even say it works a lot better then I have seen in Hollywood's current version of these stories and even in their summer blockbusters. So while it's basic I am going to give extra points for the story based on how it's told.

The game-play consists of platforming and the third person shooter gunfights. The platforming does get creative and it's actually more enjoyable then the gunfights. Most of these play the same with almost NO real difference to them. With other third person shooters there is some level of variety as opposed to "pattern using idiots" and "charging demons that look like muscle-bound Gollums" and they provide almost no challenge except in numbers. The final boss is basically one guy aiming a lazer-pointed shotgun at you while other guys following patters run out and use cover. I just feel it's better executed in different games like Mass Effect, Spec Ops: The Line or Gears Of War.

Basically if what you're looking for is a good story but more of a homage to the treasure hunt movies like Indiana Jones and told in a light hearted adventure sort of way then I would recommend this game. I mean while the combat gets dull there is a lot to enjoy out of this game and I would buy the second and third games (and any other game like this) in a heartbeat.
