Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
A Great Start to 1 of the best gaming franchises
A lot of fans seem to shrug this game off to Uncharted 2 and 3. While they are fantastic games, this one always stands out to me, because of the environment, soundtrack, and sheer awesomeness. This game was the perfect start to one of the Greatest gaming franchises of all time.
Wish it was like the other two
I got uncharted 3 and then played my way backwards through the game series. This game sucks. In the other games you can get shot a lot before you die. This game if you get shot twice you start to die! I hate it. I wouldn't get this game.
lots of fun
I really enjoy this game. The graphics were great and the game kept me coming back for more.the game was definitely worth the price. Play on normal the end on easy was way to easy.
I grew up on Tomb Raider and heard this was like it: adventure, puzzle-solving, exotic locations, shooting stuff, etc. I was hugely disappointed, in pretty much every aspect. 1. there are maybe 5 puzzles throughout the game, and they are overly simplistic. 2. the gameplay consisted of moving from one set piece to the next and engaging in a fierce gun battle with 10-15 jungle mercenaries. And...that is the entire game in a nutshell. Clear an area of bad guys, move to another area, that often looked extremely similar, and then battle more guys until you cleared that area. Seriously, it's a combat game more than any kind of adventure game. 3. the locales were either very similar to one another (except for the notable exception of some abandoned hospital or something and then you're suddenly playing a lesser version of Silent Hill) or you would have to circle back through environments you've already played/cleared. It was pretty lazy. And there we have it. And my 7-yr-old sons and I beat it in like 10 hours.
if you have a ps3 you have to have this game it is the best story line iv seen it reminds me of Indiana jones its awesome the sound graphics and girl drake everything is so realistic got to have it
Good but certainly not exceptional
It might be a bit harsh to hold Uncharted: Drake's Fortune against the light of newer games, but since no game exists in a vacuum it is entirely fair. And any fair discussion of the game must point out that as interesting as the story is, and as action packed as the gameplay is, the limits of what you can do here are very disappointing. In particular the floating camera is awkward at the best of times and infuriating at the worst, and the jumping mechanisms are seriously limited by the camera angle you are viewing, which for a game that relies on "platforming" so much is a serious disappointment. Gunplay gets easier as you go, although the enemy AI is by turns insipid and diabolical. Few opportunities exist to be stealthy, as eagle-eyed AI spots you at almost any turn. But the story is compelling and the animations engaging, and on the whole it is a entertaining experience. If you are going to play the Uncharted series (and I recommend you do) this is obviously the best place to start, warts and all.
So fun. I bought the Uncharted Dual Pack yesterday and I can't stop playing this game. It is like a hardcore Indiana Jones. Cool gameplay and awesome guns. The graphics are great especially for 2007. Buy the dual pack it's $15 and its brand new. i should have bought Uncharted 3 but I can get it next week. AWESOME!
This PS3 exclusive blew my mind when I first played it! Naughty Dog has outdone themselves again. I said that it was perfect for hardcore gamers, but I really think it's perfect for any gamer. The game plays like a hybrid of Tomb Raider and Gears of War with the feel of a Hollywood blockbuster. The controls are perfect and the replay value is high. I remember the graphics on this game blowing my mind when I first got my PS3. The landscapes and water look phenomenal. It's the first time I remember video game characters actually looking like they just got out of the water. Looks great, feels great, plays great. One of the best PS3 games and I couldn't recommend it and its sequels enough.
1st ps3 Game Ever Played
This was the first ps3 game i have ever played. It came with my ps3 bundle for BLACK FRIDAY! It got me addicted to playing video games. this game made the bundle worth EVERY penny. It is really fun and the story is ONE OF THE BEST! if you love an action packed game with a well written story, then this is the game for you! You wont regret it.
Best PS3 series!
Uncharted is ridiculously good. It has a GREAT story and characters. Very fun and if you play this one be prepared to buy Uncharted 2 and 3 directly after because you will want to keep playing.
