Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Ok, when Gametap said "...best reason to get a Playstation 3 this year...", I had no Idea they were being serious! I bought the PS3 Uncharted 3 Bundle along with the Official Stragety Guide. I was expecting alot from this game, and I have never even played the first two. This game blew EVERYTHING I thought about gaming out of the window! Unlike most games where it gets you hooked at the beginning and slowly release you toward the end, this game hooks you every single scene, every chapter, throughtout the entire game. Never been so hooked on a game in my life. I will even say its gonna be better than COD MW3. Don't get me wrong, I own every single COD from 1-3, 4(MW), MW2, and already have MW3 pre-ordered, but this game is an entirely different monster! I highly reccommend you get this, pick it up ASAP. Online multiplayer isn't too shabby either. I have went to work for a 12 hour shift on 2 hours of sleep becaus I didn't want to put this controller down, SMH. I am definitely going back to pick up the first two Uncharted's in that 2-Disc Bundle!
Uncharted fan since the beginning!
This game is just mind blowing in every aspect, from graphics game play, and online.. you can't go wrong with buying a masterpiece like uncharted.. Although the story isn't as long as Among thieves i still enjoyed it and the new features they have added are awesome and multiplayer you can expect countless hours of game play and upgrading..If you haven't played the franchise yet..what are you waiting for!?
Best. Game. Ever.
Where should I start....
The Single Player is pretty much the usual amazing Uncharted campaign.
Voice acting is great, story is awesome, and it'll take you a good 15 hours to beat on normal.
To be honest, I didn't expect the multiplayer to be that good.
But, its GREAT! Plenty of upgrades, boosters, and customization.
And some new gamemodes as well. Its sure to last you a while.
You can even make your own emblem, and see it around the map.
The Co-Op is also outstanding, with Siege, Survival, Adventure, and Gold Rush. Playing Co-Op also ranks you up in Multiplayer, which is good for people who play both.
Graphics: They are superb. Probably the best a console can offer.
The graphics on Multiplayer are just as good too!
Sound: Very good. The characters sound as real as it gets, and the gun sounds are very nice too.
Overall: I would give it 11/10 if I could.
Nathan Drake is back
This looks like the best game in the series in my opinion. I really like how they put the plot of the story in the desert rather than continuing the story in the snow mountains. The graphics look mostly the same as Uncharted 2 but in the live gameplay there were certain elements that really stood out. This is going to be a great game to play for many months.
THIS IS A TRUE DEVELOPER
Uncharted 3 is my go to game for multiplayer. I used to be a Call of Duty player but soon lost interest as all you do is have a gun at your screen and just look up, down, left or right and call killstreaks. Uncharted changed that for me as u dont have many campers. Escaping death can be done, all maps allow you to interact with them, balanced kickbacks, and it keeps on going. Though the formula of uncharted 2 multiplayer is still there, many things have been improved and is still being improved as new patches are being made. The story has some been there done that moments from Uncharted 2 but it is still an amazing ride. I do agree that Uncharted 2 campaign was more exciting and thats mainly because it was a huge step up from its predecessor, but Uncharted 3 campaign does not fall short. Rarely do you get games where you get an outstanding multiplayer and campaign and Naughty Dog has outdone themselves.
third time's a charm
This may be the best Nathan Drake adventure yet! With new villaness Katherine Marlowe, it will make a completely different approach. In Uncharted 3, there are new abilities like fighting two guys at once, and jumping and smashing people's heads to the ground. im pretty sure this isnt the final product, but it still looks very good(graphically). i hope it lives up to the hype!
Saw the multiplayer trailer and it looks awesome
They will have 6 on 6. Deep and i mean very deep customization, Youtube connection with uncharted to post videos directly, Facebook integration to see which of your friends are online, and a type of cinematic multiplayer experience and new booster perks and medal awards with a bonus. Or just look at the video.
oh... my... fregin... gosh
I am so ready for this game it comes out Three days before my b-day. I am prepared for this.... i have seen every video there is for this game and i preordered it and the picture of drake (one of the main characters) is my profile picture on my facbook.... I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!
After hearing the hype for almost 10 months, reading about the perfect score it got from IGN, and finally picking up the game at midnight, I can now say I've played the greatest game on PS3. The musical score, graphics, and voice acting is as good (if not better) than ever in the series. It was a complete experience like it's predecessors, yet blew the others away in terms of overall appeal. I would recommend this and the previous two games in this series to anyone who A.) has recently gotten a PS3, B.) somebody who love action moves, or C.) anybody thinking about getting a PS3.
Naughty Dog has outdone themselves again with U3
The long anticipated wait of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception exclusively for PlayStation 3 is finally over and we get to experience another action-packed thrill ride. Nathan Drake is the series protagonist in search of a fabled city known as "Atlantis of the Sands" which holds untold secrets and riches. This journey to find the fabled lost city will test Drake's limits both physically and mentally. I refuse to spoil the story so I will keep the plot to a minimum but to get the most out of the experience, play Uncharted 1 & 2 first. There's lots of references to the previous adventures that you will appreciate.
Naughty Dog really went all out on Uncharted 3 and it shows with it's drool-inducing graphics which has raise the bar once again in the gaming industry. The amount of detail is staggering to say the least and you will be truly immerse in this fictional world. Animations like Drake touching the wall when close or just collapsing on the ground due to physical exhausting is so realistic and refreshing. In-game textures are phenomenal along with weather and particle effects not to mention amazing physics, lighting, shadowing implementation. There are set pieces in the game that will make your jaw drop and pause to look at the breathtaking mind-blowing environments. Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3 has manage to surpass Uncharted 2's visuals which I thought was not possible.
The sound of Uncharted 3 is nothing short of stellar and helps set the tone perfectly for this latest entry especially with headphones on. In fact, the sound is so good, I mistaken some of the sound effects for actual real life sounds which that has never happened to me before. I am more than impressed with the voice over work and each character is not only believable but relatable as well. There's instances where Drake says what you're thinking in the game (in my case that is) and it really adds to the experience. The dialog is hilarious and witty which does a fine job of easing the tension and believe me, the action is intense.
Aiming is fine though I had difficulties getting headshots but that is most likely do due me not having the best accuracy. Platforming can be a pain especially when you go for a long jump just to plummet to your death but it won't ruin your experience. Enemies are way more intelligent now and will actually find ways to surprise you with a bullet in your head from out of nowhere. The hand-to-hand combat is amazing and you might find yourself using it more than guns but guns are still very effective. Puzzles are challenging and really get you thinking but not too difficult to halt you for months.
Aside from campaign mode, Uncharted 3 offers online co-op which even includes an additional bonus story and totally revamped the online multiplayer mode. Now you can create a character and insignia to your liking but limits you in what you can do. For example, you can only create male characters which left me a little disappointed as I rather create women. The new features like kickbacks and moving set pieces may receive mix reactions but I find it refreshing and a welcome change. Expect to be frustrated because you are often matched with players who are far more skilled with better weapons, boosters, and kickbacks.
Story: You're going to love every minute of it.
Graphics: Uncharted 3 has set the bar once more.
Gameplay: Addicting and pulse-pounding.
Sound: The best in the series and far ahead of the competition.
Online: Lots to do and plenty to play with.
Entertainment: As close as you can get to starring in a blockbuster action film.
Uncharted 3 is without a doubt the best PS3 game of 2011 but has some serious competition for Game of The Year award. The story alone is better than most Hollywood blockbuster films and truly a unique experience for gamers. Naughty Dog has outdone themselves again with Uncharted 3 and I implore you to experience the world this talented development team has created exclusively for PS3. I felt Uncharted 2 was a masterpiece but Uncharted 3 far exceeds it in every way. Drake's Deception is indeed a masterpiece but is it perfect? Nothing is perfect and like every game ever created, it does have flaws but they're so minor that it doesn't ruin the amazing experience. Without a doubt, Uncharted 3 gets a 5/5 stars which is a first for me but I simply can't get enough of this game so grab a copy and join me!
