It is beautiful, the desert never fails to impress even after multiple playthroughs, and the plane, the boat, and the derelict ship yard...., and the burning villa let’s just say the entire game is like pixel porn.

It's definitely beautiful, but it's also clunky.

I'm giving it a second opinion right now on a second play through, currently in France, and the gameplay is just clunky. Also, most of the environments are really confined spaces and this also hinders gameplay.

Uncharted 3 gives set-pieces after set-pieces that give player no control what so ever. Uncharted 2 among thieves is the pinnacle of cinematic gaming because it gave more control to the player. I will always love the Uncharted series but 3 over did the cinematic sequence to me it felt like a transformers movie. The game itself got lost in it's own setpieces IMO

So basically author is saying in cinematic gaming everything has to be precise & balanced within a a movie like experience.

I am playing U2 again.

For me U2 is a technological cinematic story telling masterpiece. The pacing & character chemistry is second to none.

U3 wowed me more as a technological improvement over U2 masterpiece. That fully procedural water levels are the best there is.

After experiencing Charlie Cutter I wish they did not let Flynn die and bring him over U3.
Flynn & Drake's rivalry is the best. Cutter ain't funny.

Also there is the overall "magic" that computer graphics power alone can achieve.

Chapter 18 "The Rub'al Khali" changed my life, that is for sure. I never thought anything like that possible. It was the best of both worlds and was able to do what neither can,create an intimate connection with a character and do it all with interactivity.

ND is the master of the interactive cinematic experience, so much more than a "game." Can't wait to see what is next.

UC3 is just straight up beautiful.

It was impressive, the story let me down a bit though.
U2 was hard to put down but this just wasn't pulling me in.
Awesome graphics and gameplay though, the new combat mechanics are stunning.
