A video game review written by Lee Sonogan
(2011) Action, Adventure
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”.
Writing this back in 2016 > https://ungroovygords.com/2016/12/17/uncharted-drakes-fortune-a-video-game-review/ it’s time to review another. Not wanting to paraphrase everything in that link, I shall comment on the nitty-gritty. Not playing the original and the remastered trilogy collection, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, the overall payoff and improvement between each game got better over time!
IMDB describes the story as ‘Treasure hunter Nathan Drake embarks on a quest in search of the Atlantis of the Sands while battling an ancient, sinister organization.’
Uncharted 2 is my least favourite and while I have played number 4, I did not end up betting it (Due to processor of a 5-year-old PS4 dead). Feeling complete, the intensity of the linear type of movie telling and graphics are compelling. The engrossing segments are an experience, not just a video game. For over 8 years old now, it was considered the game of the year back then and it was an exclusive Playstation one!
Very engaging and memorable, it can get pretty wild in its wonderful cinematography. For cons, it has its limitations in linear and collectable RPG content. Most of the soundtrack was great, some of the plot points were flat but not enough to ruin the consistency. Finishing this game I became a fan of the Nathan Drake character and wholesome moments with other NPC’s. In conclusion, I highly recommend it but you must complete the first two first, preferably the adaption collection I mentioned before.
