I initially bought this game for my brother, having absolutely no interest in an adventure game of a treasure hunter. However, he played it through three or four times non stop and this was when I realised it was probably worth a shot.
This game takes you on the adventure of Drake who is a famed treasure hunter and claims to be a decendant of the great explorer Sir Francis Drake. On uncovering a diary that had been encompassed within what was thought to be Sir Francis' underwater tomb it led Drake to a further mystery - El Dorado. He had currently been filming a documentary of the finding of the diary for which of course the reporter had paid for, but as this news of certain fortune and fame unfolded he didn't want her anywhere near the action. Therefore himself and his friend a fellow treasure hunter set out to find the city of gold.
The game is amazing visually, comprising of the movements to climb from lara croft along with great combat action. Around every corner there seems to be a new twist to the story, as I found that I wasn't just playing a treasure hunting game anymore, but a real action packed feature with one hell of a twist to the storyline.
For any playstation gamer who has not had the opportunity to at least play through this once, I definitely recommend it. This is one game I gave 9/10 as my only criticism is that the female reporter whom tags along sometimes seems to get in your way, and she can be irritating. But casting this to the side this game is packed full of action, twists and stunning graphics, a game not to be missed by any avid gamer.
I received Uncharted: Drake's Fortune with my PS3 and I absolutely loved it. I'm the type of person that doesn't really care to much for puzzle games, but this is an exception. The game has a great story and excellent game-play. One of the main weapons in the game that you'll be using is a pistol, typically in games I avoid a pistol like the plague but in Uncharted the standard pistol works very well. The cover system works very well, it somewhat reminds me of Gears of War (very good game by the way). The graphics are so good that my father watched me play the whole game on our HDTV in the living room.
I give the game 5 out of 5 stars. One thing I didn't particularly care for was the game went from Indiana Jones to a horror film toward the end but it was minor problem and I look to replaying the game again.
uncharted Drakes fortune is a great third person action/adventure game that is quite similar to tomb raider. In the game you play as nathan drake. You have to fight pirates and solve puzzles with your companions sully and elena and all of this is done whilst trying to find more clues to help you find the treasure of El Dorado. From the off this game will have you hooked with its intruiging storyline and realistic fight scenes. This game has quite a few difficult parts such as a few of the fight scenes, but it is highly satisfying when you finally manage to complete them. The game has lots of parts that you have to drive veichles away from the enemy, whether it is a jet ski or a jeep the chase will still keep you entertained. If you are interested in a very realistic and challenging action game then this uncharted Drake's fortune is the game for you.
The first impression of Uncharted: Drakes Fortune was Tomb Raider with a male lead. Although this is not wrong I feel this game is much better than Tomb Raider. It would be wrong to review this game without talking about how stunning the visuals are, considering this was one of the early games to be released on the PS3 the graphics are outstanding, with it being set on a tropical Island really adds to looks Naughty Dog have created, however there is little variation to the scenery of the levels and can get a little repetitive. Overall the story is good, it is very cheesy but a good kind of cheesy, and Drake as a character is immediately likable. The controls are easy to grasp with the first level being a very clever way of helping understand how Drake works. The big negative would be what they did in the last few levels; I won't elaborate due to spoilers being revealed, but just to say I didn't feel it fitted in with the game. This game does lack an online mode (something included in the sequel) but considering it was one of the first games on the PS3 this can be forgiven. If you have played neither this nor the sequel I would recommend getting Uncharted 2 as it is a better game and currently the same price. However if you have the 2nd better never played this it would be a great addition.
