PopWatch: "There is one section of the game, set in a medieval castle, that suffers a bit from too many characters, too much convoluted exposition, and too little invention in the level design (I’ve explored castles like that in more games than I can count, really, including the first Uncharted). But in the totality of the game, it’s more of a beauty mark than a blemish.
There are many, many more moments where my mouth hung agape in an awe-struck grin, but rather than spoil them for you here, please do join me later this week as I start a little PopWatch experiment and recap Uncharted 3‘s single-player campaign from start to finish. I haven’t even mentioned how strong the acting is in the game, or noted little details like the small camera judder as you lift Drake onto a ledge.
Suffice it to say, Uncharted 3 is a bigger, richer, and more exhilarating piece of entertainment than almost anything else I’ve experienced this year. I cannot wait to play it again, and to play it along with you."
