Ultimately, there's little to dislike about Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Even if you're not a platforming fan, there's plenty of action here to balance out the near-death leaps of faith. It might not have the running time of other titles on the market, but the leanness of the experience and time invested are fulfilling, plus the replay value is strong.
It's also worth noting that you might also be surprised by how much it pushes the envelope on its T rating. The violence isn't graphic, but a bloody headshot is a bloody headshot, and the amount of blue language is surprising.
It's also a gorgeous game that you'll hear taxing your PlayStation 3; it utilizes the system's technology wonderfully for both visuals and loading screen-free gaming. The PS3 has received a good share of some solid games this year, but any gamers who own the console truly owe it to themselves to make Uncharted part of their library. In a sea of great first person shooters, you won't get a better action game this year.
