Fortune hunter Nathan Drake is catapulted headlong into an adventure that takes him on a daring trek into the heart of the Arabian Desert in a search for the fabled "Atlantis of the Sands." This journey pits him and his mentor Victor Sullivan against the occult treachery of a shadowy clandestine organization and its ruthless leader. When the terrible secrets of this lost city are unearthed, Drake's quest descends into a desperate bid for survival that strains the limits of his endurance and forces him to confront his deepest fears.

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
[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".
Uh-huh. That's all real pretty but, what the hell's it mean in English?
It means, be careful what you wish for. It might just get you.
