You don’t get very far in the pulp adventure genre by erring on the side of caution. Indiana Jones would never have left his classroom, let alone revisited the spikes and poisoned darts to rescue his hat. Buck Rogers would have stayed in the 20th century, eating pancakes on his porch. Dan Daren’t doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. As for Uncharted – well, it’s called that for a reason. For the artists and engineers at Naughty Dog, building PlayStation 3’s biggest action game is a constant near-death experience.
