Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception Early Review

uncharted 3 game review
Nathan Drake is back at it again, I got play the Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception and participated in the beta. And the impression that I got is that they are trying to make Uncharted one of PlayStation 3's premier multiplayer experiences and that's exactly what they should be shooting for. There are plenty of first person shooters out there, a slew of third person ones on top of that.

But Uncharted has another dimension that other games lack and that's quick, fast, and strategic platforming. The only other game that comes to mind like that is Assassin's Creed but that's more of a stabber not so much of a shooter. What I did get out of the game was satisfaction, pulling enemies off roof tops, performing impossible shots, great customization and a nice diverse set of low outs that help you customize your experience. These all work very well.

Even with the gameplay looking to be taken care of though the backbone of Uncharted is still the story. Uncharted 1 and 2 have some of the best stories in the business proving to be spiritual successors to movies like Indiana Jones. I did see some cinematics from Uncharted 3 and they were well performed and written but you just can't tell until you play the entire game. Uncharted 3 for the PlayStation 3 will be out on November 1, 2011.
