Drake’s Deception hits a sweet spot. It takes everything I love about the Uncharted franchise and finds new, unpredictable ways to surprise and shock. There isn’t anything notably bad about Uncharted 3, it provides an absolutely stunning single player experience that its contemporaries should compare themselves to. Some familiar problems return to slightly taint the overall presentation, but the faults are few and far between. Whichever way you look at it, Drake’s Deception is one of the best games you can play this year.
