It’s quite difficult to accurately describe in words how good this game actually is, but I’ll do my very best. BUY THIS GAME!
Playstation game developer Naughty Dog has dug itself into quite the hole with their critically and commercially successful Uncharted series. Uncharted and Playstation 3 pretty much go hand and hand; If you buy a PS3, you’re gonna get Uncharted. The game’s sequel, Uncharted 2, has also received dozens and dozens of perfect scores and game of the year awards. Because of this, everybody’s expectations (including my own) for the next installment in the series were through the roof. I’m very happy to say that Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception delivers in almost every way possible. It’s an absolutely fantastic experience that simply must be played by anyone who owns a PS3. It’s really no surprise though. Naughty Dog’s developers are some of the most talented in the business.
The graphics of Uncharted 3 are absolutely mind-blowing. It’s by far the best looking game on the console to date. Naughty Dog should be commemorated for the amount of detail shoved into this game. Nathan Drake, (the game’s protagonist) reacts exactly how you would expect a human to react in any given situation. His animations are absolutely top-notch. If you walk around a corner, he puts his hand on the wall and drags it across. If you come near fire, he will shield is face from the light. The game exudes polish. While the story might not be as tight as the yarn spun in Uncharted 2, the locations that it takes you to are much more impressive; Yemen, London, Syria, and France to name a few.
Well, guess I better start walking…
