Good

Great setpieces, muddled execution

Pros: Brilliant cinematic setpieces, including a gunfight / escape from a capsizing oceanliner

Cons: Controls seem less responsive than 2; assorted quirks / bugs mar gameplay; storyline less than compelling

Uncharted 3 continues the tradition of the first two, but loses something in the process. Controls aren't as tight, leading to several accidental deaths, and hit detection is off just enough to be frustrating in some of the more frantic gunfights. NPCs are tightly scripted rather than "fluid" (a stealth takedown of a lone guard in the middle of blowing sand 50+ yards away from any other NPC resulted in a full camp alert), and the cover mechanic hasn't aged well. None of these are deal-breakers in and of themselves, but taken together they result in a game that delivers lots of "thrill" moments, but makes you work to get to them.

I had so much fun playing the game that as soon as it was over I started it all over again. This is how gaming should be. The 3D is awesome and they actually do 3D the right way instead of just 3D game play and 2d cut scenes, they stay 3D all the way thru and its a ton of fun. The locations are great, textures are rich and the story line good enough to be a feature film. It's just that good. An excellent follow up to Uncharted 2.
