Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is a rarity in gaming these days. It's not a long game, which might disappoint some. Its hero, Nathan Drake, is hardly oozing with machismo compared to the likes of most gaming protagonists. It's an exclusive title on a platform that's got great capabilities, but a small user base right now. However, amidst a sea of titles this year that pointedly make arguments for what games should evolve into, from moral relativism, to blockbusters with fleshed-out online experiences, to bending the space-time continuum for the promise of baked goods, Naughty Dog's third-person action game is a breath of fresh air.
Naughty Dog delivers one of 2007's indisputably finest action titles.
