Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Uncharted just might be the most fun you'll have with a videogame. More hype? Not so much. The first installment of a franchise is always an unknown quantity; Uncharted delivers with an adventure so engaging you'll have trouble putting down the controller. You play as Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter that could give Indiana Jones a run for his money. The game (really an action-adventu...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Naughty Dog has taken a gamble of straying from their past IP's of cartoony platformer to a more realistic approach (environments, characters, etc.) of platforming with the addition of 3rd person shooting with a cover system made popular by the Killswitch & Gears of War franchises. In Uncharted: Drake's Fortune you assume the role of Nathan Drake who claims he is a descendent of the le...

If you have a ps3, buy uncharted. Or at least rent it. This game has to be played. The characters are so realistic and likeable, the graphics are the best i've seen, and there is just so much gameplay depth there is something for everyone. It has shooting, platforming, and puzzle solving. Also, i know some didnt like the twist at the end, but i loved it. It was really cool fighting a new...

Ever since E3 2005, there has been lots of hype for this game. From excellent HD graphics, to highly detailed animation, up to production values that rival those of Hollywood and gameplay mechanics that work well, nothing could have gone wrong with this title. Up till before the release of this game, everything seemed to have been going great, as the technology seemed to have been improving con...

Uncharted: Drakes Fortune is created by Naughty-dog. Yes the guys who brought you Jax. This game however is not a Jax type game. Think Indiana Jones crossed with Resident Evil minus zombies. This is one of my favorite Ps3 games and has amazed me from day one. I won't go into the story but the game has a great story and balanced gameplay. Not much to keep you from playing and plenty to dra...

Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is one of the best games yet to grace Sony's Playstation 3. Featuring stunning, detailed visuals, excellent sound, great storytelling, and plenty of action, Uncharted has all the elements a demanding gamer wants in a videogame. First off, unlike the majority of videogames available in the current generation, Uncharted features a captivating and enga...

I’ll cut to the chase, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune is the best PlayStation 3 exclusive, the best PlayStation 3 single player experience and only competes with Call of Duty 4 as my best game on the console (I still haven’t decided on a winner yet). The game has often been described as taking the combat from the 360’s Gears of War and the plat-forming aspects the from Tomb Rader series. These are b...

Uncharted Drake's Fortune, just as Gears of War was suppose to do with the 360, was to show what the PS3 can achieve. And it Delivers (in most places). Story. A 400 year old clue in the supposedly coffin of dead fortune hunter Sir Francis Drake sets modern day fortune hunter Nathan Drake on a wild adventure searching for the fabled treasure of El Dorado. With the help of Elena Fishe...

Naughty Dog's years of devolopment for this PS3 game have proven to be worthwhile. They have created a true next gen game. First introduced at E3 2005, Uncharted Drake's Fortune was somewhat overlooked by big games such as Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid. The final product for the game surpasses the trailer and rivals Hollywood films. Graphics in Uncharted are simply amazing. Naughty Do...

I bought a 40GB Playstation 3 on mid December just because I thought that it was finally time for me to play in a next gen console so I decided to buy Uncharted while I was at it. So I took out that huge (and heavy) thing that is a Playstation 3, hooked up the HDMI cables for a better experience,and inserted Uncharted into my new baby and boom, I was in Heaven. Nathan Drake's the name, and u...

This game has generated a lot of its own hype - to do that a game has to be very very good. As much as i can see the appeal, i have to admit that i dont feel it is, and heres why. First of all, you have the combat. Don't get me wrong, the AI is decent enough. Not as groundbreaking as many would have you believe, but the npc's are perfectly capable of escaping grenade blasts, and taking cov...

Uncharted is more than a great game, it is also a great movie (just watch the cutscenes). There is plenty of exploration, action and adventure. The exploration is not an important part of the game per se as the levels are pretty linear, but there is a treasure hunting aspect of the game that helps achieve bonus points which in turn opens up extra features. The game play itself is excellent...

Background: Labbled as Sonys saviour of 07, this title had a lot resting on its shoulders. This was also Naughty Dogs first attempt with the PS3 hardware, and with a huge rep behind them with titles like the infamous Crash series aswell as Jak and Daxter there was a feel in the air that this could infact save Sonys backside from one of the worst years for the console gaming giant‘s history....

After months of Uncharted bombardment via the same annoying commercial on TV, I figured I’d give this game a shot, at the expense of anyone’s but my own. The first thing you notice when you pop this game in are the beautiful graphics. Awesome cinematics, impressive in-game graphics, and realistic looking environments make this game one of the best looking games out there. Also it’s worth m...

Well I'm sure you've heard about Uncharted by now, how it's "the game to own on PS3" and how it "sets a new standard in visuals." Well I want to tell you that all of that is true First of all, if you have an HDtv capable of 720p you'll be pleased. I was amazed at the lighting of the jungles, the responsiveness of flora (flowers sway past you as you walk through them), a...

If you are like me and are sick of the slew of short (12 hrs or under) games coming out on consoles, then just remember that uncharted is no different in this department. It can be beaten rather quickly, so if you have not played it you may be better off hiring this bad boy. That said, what you get is quality over quantity. I'm not going to repeat what all the official and respected (some...

One thing I love about Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is despite the fact that it is this "grand adventure" you never see anything in the game that you really consider out of the realm of possibility. With exception to the cliff jumping I never found my self thinking "oh come on". Naughty Dog provided a great story that never makes you feel like it couldn't actually have happe...

Gamers generally associate the term 'platformer' with a medieval prince who’s out to rescue a beautiful princess from the clutches of an evil vizier... or perhaps a scantily dressed archaeologist with a British accent who could give good old Indiana Jones a run for his money. But now we have yet another candidate to add to this list, and he goes by the name of Nathan Drake. Drake isn’t a s...

Well what Can I say? Another great PS3 title you must own. Uncharted Drakes forturn is one hell of a game. The game is developed by the guys at Naughty Dog. You might also remember them back in the days of the PS1 when they first introduced Crash Bandicoot, and when they introduced Jak and Daxter during the PS2 era. So now the guys at Naughty dog bring you a new franchise that is just as g...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is the ultimate action adventure. It puts together the best of the best: Gears of War gameplay, platforming, puzzles, great graphics, and great orchestrated music. This game can be considered a perfect package. The story of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is excellent. With many surprises (with Sully), and with a well-written dialogue, this game could be comparable t...

Speaking of gaming and reality, I think most Playstation 3 owners agree that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is truly the only game that successfully applied the PS 3's cell technology to mimic reality into the game so far. Developed by Naughty Dog, the company who developed Jak and Daxter series on both PS 1 and PS 2, Uncharted supports full HD resolution (1080p) and intentionally runs smoothly on...

I was saddened around Christmas 2007 when Uncharted: Drakes Fortune came out. I had thought it looked very cool and interesting but wait... It would be 8 months until I finally owned my PS3, but I knew I wouldn't forget this game when I did own one. One faithful afternoon, my brother surprised me with a birthday gift and when I noticed it was Uncharted my face lit up. I had never played a...

There is no other way to say it. Uncharted is a good game. A year later and it still stands as one of the best games available for the PS3. Story: Uncharted: Drakes Fortune tells the tale of a treasure hunter looking for that one big score that can let him and his friends retire happy. He seeks to find the lost city of gold. Unfortunately he isn't the only one after the treasure and as a r...

Now I know that Uncharted has been out for a year and a bit, but to me it is the best PS3 that I myself own. Personally, I think that what we got here is on the best games available on the market today, and thank God it's on PS3. Now, I am a huge fan of Naughty Dog, and have bought their games since Crash Bandicoot hit the shelves in the 90s. I played through Jak and when I got my PS3 this was...

Released well over a year ago, Uncharted has managed to stay cutting edge in terms of graphical prowess. At the time of release, I dismissed it as overhyped rubbish. But the other week I felt the urge to buy it, went home, and didnt put the controller down the hole way through. You are Nathan Drake, a distant relative of one Sir Francis Drake. What the game throws up for him is a weird bu...

The year was 2007. Highly regarded as one of the best years for contemporary gaming, it should come as no surprise then that the Uncharted series made its debut that fall alongside other incredibly successful releases such as the highly anticipated Halo 3 and the new IPs Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed, and Bioshock. Coming up against some strong competition, Drake’s Fortune was flying low on mos...

While it's not true if one were to say that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a completely original idea considering it borrows elements from other games and even movies, Naughty Dog has done a fantastic job to create something highly entertaining which has paved the way for one of the best series out there. To compare the game with another will not do it justice as Uncharted progresses in the same...

The PS3 has no games. So went the common fanboy's refrain in 2006-Jun 2008. Now, most reasonable people (non-fanboys) will admit that there was a time when the PS3 really did not have good games. But at the same time most will question the idea that it took almost two years for the PS3 to get good games. Uncharted (2007) stands out as an example of what the PS3 could do. However, was this truly...

In 2004, Jason Rubin announced during a speech at a D.I.C.E. conference in which he berated publishers for not treating developers better, that he was leaving Naughty Dog. Andy Gavin soon announced afterwards that would be joining his longtime friend in leaving his position as co-head. This would leave successors Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra and the rest of the team with a challenging d...

It’s certainly strange to come away from one of the PS3’s so-called “must-haves” of its time with a heightened sense of disappointment. During an era of over-blown squabbles over a certain game somehow saving a console—as if the library was completely bankrupt of solid exclusives until that happened, this was the one which seemed to hit the mark when it came to critics. Plus, the popular Naug...
