Trivia

Game director Justin Richmond explained that Drake's Deception feels more open than other Uncharted games mainly due to the new character creation feature. "We're not an open-world game, we're never going to be an open-world game but; we can try. It's still up in the air how much gameplay we're going to let you wander around. But we aim to let you just ride a thousand miles off into the middle of nowhere and still find action and adventure as you go. Ultimately the feel we want to get is, yeah, your character is lost in the desert. So it needs to feel like that. We aim to make it feel open-world." See more »

Quotes

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 3: Drake's Deception takes place about two years after the events of Uncharted 2. This time Drake is looking for a treasure that both Francis Drake and T.E. Lawrence were after. Ubar, Iram of the Pillars, The Atlantis of the Sands. Drake's gotten in over his head this time as a mysterious woman named Katherine Marlowe is looking for the lost city along with her group of men, and they'll stop at nothing from preventing Nate and Sully from getting to the city alive.

Nathan Drake, Victor Sullivan, Elena and Chloe are all back to go after this incredible treasure and the world is throwing everything at them. First let's talk melee combat. Uncharted has gradually gotten better with hand to hand combat as the series goes on and I think Uncharted 3 has just about mastered it. You can take on more than one enemy, pick up an object nearby and hit your opponent, and counter with relative ease. Gunplay is still the same, with the same duck and cover routine as the previous games.

The puzzles in Uncharted 3 can range from easy to mind-numbingly hard. I'll admit I had to look up how to solve a puzzle or two but once you find out how it goes it becomes fairly simple.

Of course one of the things that makes Uncharted so appealing are the graphics. They look amazing. The characters are even more realistic than last time and some of the environments are really mind blowing. Two things that stood out for me were the areas with fire and the desert areas. The sand looks real, the fire looks real. Sometimes it feels like you could just reach out and touch the locations. Nate makes subtle movements as he's walking too that give him a bigger sense of reality, though sometimes it feels a little awkward.

All I can say is Naughty Dog has delivered once more. While the climax felt a little rushed to me and the game is a bit short, Uncharted 3 is a game that is just as good if not better than its predecessor. I'll be playing it a lot more times in the future and I recommend it to any Play Station 3 owner.
