Did You Know?


During the desert sequence, as Drake becomes lost, Marlowe's voice can be heard reading a passage from T.S. Eliot's modernist poem, "The Waste Land." The second stanza begins with "Only there is shadow under this red rock," as Drake makes his way under a red rock. See more »


The vista after climbing to the roof of the dingy pub in the prologue implies it's somewhere in Southwark. Rather than being a rundown neo-Dickensian slum, it's one of the most multicultural, and more importantly most expensive, areas in London. The chances of finding a dive like that, which openly breaks the smoking ban too, are slim. The abandoned section of the London Underground is a bit of a stretch too, since not only is the actual Tube network not that extensive south of the river, a lot of what's there is far more modern than as depicted (The Victoria and Jubilee line sections south of the river are both post-1950) and in extensive use. The closest part of the network to what is depicted would be the Aldwych branch, a complete section of tunnel closed in 1994, which is north of the river. See more »


Nathan Drake: [Nate is quoting from a book] "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. This, I did".
Victor Sullivan: Uh-huh. That's all real pretty but, what the hell's it mean in English?
Nathan Drake: It means, be careful what you wish for. It might just get you.

Uncharted Drake's Deception is the best game ever
7 February 2012 | by haxleyandrewSee all my reviews

Naughty Dog promised us something far more spectacular and fantastic. And as they did alone came the new game that everyone was excited for was Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception. This game proved to be a very great stealth based game and was more that Naughty Dog could deliver to it's gamers.

Uncharted Drake's Deception is the best game of 2011. If you have not yet played it before it is fantastic. The story deals with how Nathan Drake is going on his new quest. Possibly so that he can explore and find out what's happening. Alone the way he meets someone named Victor Sullivan who becomes his friend later on and they both find out what's happening. Meanwhile Atlantis and it's terrible leaders could mean trouble for the 2. So they must find Atlantis Of The Sands or else they won't make it.

This game has an amazing story that takes you throughout the game. It's fast packed and is full of action. From all points. You get to discover how great the story moves nicely along as you play the game even further which is just amazing.

This game also not to mention has great graphics and has great stealth that you can use to dodge the enemy's attacks and also shoot them or grab their weapons when they are defeated which is a neat feature. But also you can snap their neck. Grab them and throw them off tall ledges. And also shoot at them with any weapon of your choice. But also to note is that they get a lot smarter and try to stop you so it's always important to duck and or dodge the attack in case it happens.

Also this game has better looking graphics and looks better then the previous both games. Also they look much realistic here and the characters as well. But also the sand and of course all of the enemies which look really realistic compared to both of the other games in it's predecessor. It just makes this game more better looking and more realistic compared to the other games in the trilogy.

Also there's this really cool feature where you get to punch enemies and fight with them. Of course in boss fights you need to press each key to make the main character fight him off. And of course as you progress the fights will keep getting intense and really hard just after a few minutes. So what you need to do in each order is press the keys as you are told to do and then you will either kick the enemy or punch him depending on how you decide to fight him off your back. This feature is brand new and of course is something that you will need to learn once you get the hang of the game. It will get difficult as it progresses but you will learn it pretty soon.

Also this game has plenty of brand new levels and just like Batman Arkham City, These levels will get hard as you keep going through them trying to figure out what your objective is and what task you need to complete. Although these levels will not seem all too easy for the player. They will get extremely hard for you as you manage to complete the task. So not only will you get through further throughout the game. But also because you will need to kill enemies in order to pass that same level so you won't be getting any trouble to complete it at all.

If you are a fan of Uncharted then get this game. It's the best action game of 2011 and you will not be disappointed with it at all. This game is just a great game for the fans or gamers who wanna play it. This game also has amazing graphics and a great action fast paced story through it.
