Nick Lewis of the Calgary Herald gives Uncharted: Drake's Fortune four and half stars out of five:
"Blending the best of the Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider franchises, Uncharted introduces a new hero to the gaming world by the name of Nathan Drake. If his first adventure is any indication, we'll soon be seeing a lot more of him.
"Claiming to be a descendant of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, Nathan convinces a documentarian to pay for retrieval of his ancestor's coffin, as long as she captures it on film. When he pulls it from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, he discovers a coffin empty save for one thing: Francis Drake's personal diary. What follows is one of the most entertaining, engaging adventures you're likely to have on PlayStation 3 all year."
