Fresh Meat: What Uncharted Really Did For Gaming

What is the Uncharted series in a nutshell? Many will say that the series is a pinnacle of modern game design; the perfect marriage of cinematography and gameplay elements. In response to Eurogamer’s 8 out of 10 review of Uncharted 3 review, fans of the series from all around the internet were noticeably upset. Flamming, angry protesting, common internet faire… An 8 out of 10 is a fine score mind you, but with demands that anything under a 10 wasn’t only unwarranted but dishonorable to a series that is great regardless of review scores, it comes off sort of ridiculous. (PS3, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception)

Alan Wake Eurogamer review... MGS4 Eurogamer review... Singling out Uncharted has no merit to this article.

I think people were mad with the 8 out of 10 score because they give the second game 10/10 and the third game improved on most features still keeping the high quality that the second game had....but how can you give a game which has done that a lower score when it's still a high quality game with many improvments. When I read the review the reviewer was trying to put it like it was the same old stuff we've seen before yet they give MW3 the same score and it's worse then Uncharted....much worse when it comes to doing the same old stuff.

Plus lets not forget because people made a big fuss over it, which I think Eurogamer wanted, it set off a chain of events which lead to other sites (AV club for example or the 3/10 score) giving it a 7 or 8 out of 10 score just for hits.

I have never played any of the uncharted series (as i dont own a ps3) but it looks interesting (I love treasure hunting films like Indiana Jones), what does it play like though? I always thought it was in the same vein as tomb raider, but like adverts make it look like one big Quick time event, and apparently the multiplayer is comparable to gears of war?

In short can someone explain how this game plays to me and whether or not you would Recomend buying a ps3 just for this?

Cheers

It plays like the epitome of pure epicness. There's no other way to describe it.

Yes of course you should buy a ps3 for this; who hasn't already done so? This is the best series of all time (tied with mgs)
Plus when you buy a ps3 you also get access to dozens of other best-of-this-gen exclusives. Xbox is the console that you buy and get one game lol.

Well buying a system just for one game can never be a smart decision, but don't let this make you feel insecure about uncharted it is well polished, fun and a super entertaining game that once you start playing you won't really want to quit because of the set pieces that are so well placed.
