Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
This game is ok, but don't be deterred, the rest of the series is phenomenal. The problem with this game is pretty much that it's the same thing over and over and over. You get to a new area, you shoot some guys, move, jump a bit, then start shooting again. Occasionally you get on a jet ski and the end mixes things up a bit, but other than that the game is way too repetitive. Of course, the game has some good parts to it. The characters and voice acting are great, and the graphics are very good for '07. The parts with a jet ski were great, especially when you have a flare gun (total overkill awesome!). Sadly, Drake's Fortune doesn't share the "wow" factor that both of its sequels have. Although it's not an amazing game, it is still a must-have as if you have a PS3, the Uncharted series is a must. Overall, this game does better as a start to a game series than it does as a single game.
Really Good but not Perfect
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a good buy and a very well thought out plot but it doesn't deserve all the hype it gets. The game play, while wonderful, is very short with only about twenty levels and the graphics were nothing special though you have to take into consideration that this is an old game and must have looked fantastic when it first surfaced. Your goals in the game shift as do the main villains as you all race to find the treasure of El Dorado and uncover it's dark secrets. While all the characters and even the villains are lovable they come in short supply with their only being about 6 named characters in the entire game. The games combat system is basic yet enjoyable and even at times challenging which is good. I hear this is going to be made into a movie and im very excited about that but hope that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will wow me just a little more.
this has good image its a realy cool get it u will like it
An Excellent IP
Although Uncharted: Drake's Fortune came out a few years ago, I just purchased it after hearing many good things about the franchise. And, I must say, everything that I heard was true.
The game's story, its strongest feature, is fantastic, leading Nathan Drake and his companions all across the world in order to track down the City of El Dorado.
As far as the gameplay, it's not perfect. There will be times when you find yourself looking for clues as to what the game will allow you to grab on to and what it won't. Many irritating deaths will come from you thinking that that ledge looked like a safe place to jump, but in reality you're falling to your death.
There are also a few very frustrating gun battles as the game approaches the finish line, where you'll just want to get through them to see the ending, but find that the enemies have all of a sudden gone through SEAL training while you've been traipsing around the world.
Overall, though, this game is magnificent. It has a brisk pace to it, so you'll never be bored. The voice acting is the best I've seen in a video game to date. I loved nearly every second of it. I hope that you do, too.
Totally Loved it
This game is a worthy beginning to the amazing Uncharted series.I loved it the second I started playing it.At first I didn't know if I should even pick it up,boy I'm glad I did.This game,while not quite as good as the sequal,is amazing!I enjoyed every aspect of it.The story was very Beautifull and complex and well worth the money I payed for it.Those of you who are unsure to partake of this,Play it now,then you will understand.This game meets the standards I had set for it,Completely blowing me away.
it is a older ps3 game but it ROCKS!!
It is a great action adventure game.The graphics are crystal clear, cutting edge graphics! the game is farely long and is chalanging.The story is about a treasure hunter (not one of your avridge Indiana Jones treasure hunters) named Nate.Nate is looking for the treasure of El Derado, but while at it he ran into a coupel of old (freinds).So, now he has to be armed with a pistal AK-47 and other guns. Overal great game!!
I bought uncharted 2 days ago and since then i couldnt stop playin it it has good graphics and a really good story except it only took me bout 7 hours to beat on easy mode but its still a great game that every ps3 owner should have i am looking forward to gettin U2 among theives and soon after U3 Drakes Deception
one of the best games ever made
this game is tight from the very first level and the story and gameplay are fantastic i loooooove this game and the 2nd uncharted, and thier really long to so your definantly gettin your moneys worth and i dnt give alot of games 10s but this 1 deserves it 4 sure
ps3 classic great begininng to a great series. Nathan Elena and Sully are great heroes you just got to love great replayable singleplayer game with great twists and great gameplay and story the graphics are amazing and its very enjoyable
The greatest game I've played yet!
Where do I start with this game... It's just truly the best game I've ever played. And, I'm not saying it's better than the other two, I have all three but only played and beat this first one so far. And just for the first in the series this game was outstanding. The graphics are INSANELY realistic, even for 2007. The sound sounded like actual people and the right emotion in the right situations. Although after you beat it's moderately lengthy 22 chapters. Sadly, there isn't a whole lot to do. Other than; A: Playing the game again perhaps on a harder difficulty. OR; B: spending time looking through the Uncharted Drakes fortune galleries you get (In the game of course). Okay, now to talk about the game-play. Taking Drake's role is great. the controls are nice and smooth. The climbing may often frustrate you when you keep falling but you'll always pull through eventually. The shooting to me I have nothing to complain for, with many nice guns to use and a third person shooter perspective that goes great with the game. You also at a couple points in the game get to shoot a turret from the back of a truck, and ride a jet ski in the water where you drive and also simultaneously have to control Elena and use her to shoot the bad guys. Alright, let's hurry up and get to the actual story itself. Well, It starts with you and a cunning reporter named Elena Fisher on a boat and you had found the tomb of sir Francis Drake. Nathan Drake's supposed ancestor who Nathan is following the footsteps of to eventually lead to the cursed treasure El Dorado. You also play the game a bit with Sully, a bit of a Father-Figure to Drake, and one of my personal favorite characters. The ending is awesome but I'm not gonna spoil it so I'm just going to end this review with saying the ending and all of the story is epic. And that you would not regret it if you bought this
