Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception: Masterpiece in one of the greatest franchises of all time
27 February 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I grew up with Tomb Raider and was likely one of those people who saw Uncharted initially as a ripoff, but alike all those people I was wrong SO badly wrong.

Uncharted was an incredible game met by justified critical acclaim and just kept hitting us with further phenomenal sequels and this of course being one of them.

So what's so good about them? They play beautifully, the environments and puzzles are flawless as is the gunplay. The storylines are deep, memorable and very well scripted. The voice cast are the best of the best and Nolan North could simply never be replaced as the now iconic Nathan Drake.

The games truly are that good and over the years they've never missed a beat and not made a single bad game. Naughty Dog is a developer in a million who lovingly craft these near perfect games consistently.

Drakes Deception is the 3rd of the 4 outings for Mr Drake and picks up with the second game left off, brings back all the old characters and gives Nathan and friends another memorable, powerful and action packed adventure.

The Good:

Great story

Very fun to play

Flawless voice cast

The Bad:

Nope
