Better Than Among Thieves!!!
11 February 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

When Uncharted 3 was first unveiled, like every Uncharted fan i was filled with both excitement and anticipation as I had very high expectations for this game after the superb job Naughty Dog did with Uncharted 2. And I would even go as far as saying they exceeded my expectations as I didn't believe it would be better than Uncharted 2 as the trailers and game play did fill me with excitement, but not as much as Uncharted 2 did in its build up. But I am happy to see that Uncharted 3 vastly improves upon Uncharted 2, especially in the storytelling area. As this time around it's not just focused around Nathan Drake, it still is majorly as he is still the main character, but it also heavily focuses upon Victor Sullivan as the story focuses on the bond between Nate and Sully. I found this really intriguing as I am a huge fan of Victor Sullivan's character, and it was always pondering in the back of my head, the prospect of how Nate and Sully came together, well now I don't have to wonder as they tell us the story in an exciting chapter that know one will expect. Nate and Sully are searching round the world in an attempt to find the lost city of Ubar (Atlantis Of The Sands) before their foes Katherine Marlowe and Talbot. I won't go into too much detail about the story as I don't want to spoil it for anyone. The only criticism I have of the story is I feel the character Elena was under used as I liked the role she was playing, as it showed really tense and emotional moments between her and Nate, but for me it was just way to short. Also you meet new character Charlie Cutter is a roughed, British bloke that teams up with Drake and Sully along with Chloe Frazer. My first initial impression of him was not a good one to say, it wasn't bad, but as time grew on he felt more like an actual Uncharted character as he was both witty and sarcastic and had moments where he made me laugh whilst bantering with his crew mates.

Players of the previous Uncharted games will feel right at home when they begin to battle in gun combat. But at the very moment they begin the campaign they'll be learning how to play out the new and improved fighting combat mechanics that are superb. Because this time you can interact with objects in the area to use, for example when your engaging in a bar fight at the very beginning of the game you can use beer bottles to smash over your enemies heads. The combat also looks more cinematic which they have really emphasised in this game more than in Uncharted 2 as they have included chase scenes. These aspects I really enjoyed as they kept you on the edge of your seat as you wonder whats going to happen next because of the ways the environment interacts with you.

Graphics wise, what do you expect me to say? Uncharted 3 is the best game ever when it comes to graphics. Naughty Dog have done such an amazing job with the visuals, everything just looks so life like and beautiful it makes Uncharted 3 a rich experience, rather than just a video game. Because of how beautiful the visuals are, it's easy to get lost in the world of Uncharted 3, which makes the game feel as if your tagging along on the journey instead of sitting in your room playing through it using a controller to enable Drake. It also makes me wonder of what Uncharted 4 will look like, mean come on Uncharted 4 is almost certainly in development. But to be honest, I don't any way Naughty Dog can improve upon the visuals area, but saying this they did tell a white lie back in 2009 stating that they used the PS3 to the most to create the Uncharted 2 visuals, and look how much better Uncharted 3 looks. So what I'm saying is, how much of the PS3s power, have Naughty Dog not took advantage of when it comes to the making of Uncharted 3.

Multiplayer was first introduced to the Uncharted series in Uncharted 2, and I enjoyed it very much which was the sole reason I kept coming back to it after completing the campaign on more than multiple occasions. In Uncharted 3, the multiplayer has been improved on heavily, as you can now create your own hero or villain and customize as you please by purchasing items through experience points earned through multiplayer games, you have an actual story emerge when you play the co-op adventure missions, unlike in Uncharted 2 where they took a location from the campaign and made you kill wave of soldiers to reach a treasure. In the co-op adventure maps you have locations from the all three Uncharted games, which offers some great mementos. The layout of multiplayer mode also looks more professional and up to date as you now have an Uncharted TV in the lower right corner of your TV screen, so you can enjoy and watch news from Naughty Dog, Uncharted 3 trailer's, multiplayer kills and even videos about Naughty Dogs newest game in development The Last Of Us.

So in conclusion if you have a PS3 you need to buy this game, it's completely worth the money as it offers a rich experience you won't have experienced from any other game. So go out to your local video game shop and purchase it, or miss out on what may be the greatest game ever created.
