Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Review - GamerNode

The jump in quality from Uncharted to Uncharted 2 was unbelievable. Uncharted 3 doesn't match that effort, but that's the only real negative I can attribute to the third entry in the franchise. Naughty Dog has delivered another game with memorable characters, fun gameplay, superb visuals, and a more than serviceable multiplayer component. And just like that you have a serious contender for game of the year.

Me - "Hey, Metacritic, can you not be stupid and stop omitting all the perfect reviews for Uncharted 3?"

Metacritic - "Nope."

I honestly don't see how it hasn't. Uncharted 3 has in many ways surpassed Among Thieve's accomplishments. Most of my favorite chapters come from Drake's Deception: Greatness From Small Beginnings, Second Story Work, The Chateau, Sink or Swim, The Rub' Al Khali, Caravan, The Atlantis of the Sands, and The Dreamers of the Day. That's eight chapters compared to Among Thieves four or six.

I also thought the story was just as good as the second's. Character development was better here in the third than either of its predecessors. And the graphics... I mean let's talk about the graphics. Probably one of the most beautiful games I've ever played. Yes, I've seen Battlefield. Yes, I've seen Skyrim. Running on some pretty expensive rigs I might add, but dat lighting, dat fire, dat water, dat sand, and dat metal. DAMN!

Uncharted 3 may have a lower resolution and less dots in the pavement but the fine sheen coupled with their extraordinary physics engine rendered these environments far more believable than anything I've seen in the past. I don't care if Skyrim's foliage has more contours and curves, none of it looks as good as this.

I'd say Drake's Deception takes a bigger leap in terms of visuals than Among Thieves did from Drake's Fortune. Call me crazy all you want, but I do believe Drake's Deception has the best graphics, set pieces, and artistic design around. I honestly don't understand how people can be debating this. Did we play the same game?
