Uncharted 3 offers everything the other games have and then some. One of my favorite things about this game are the characters. They all have a sense of humor and a legitimate reason to be scared, happy etc. The voice acting is nothing short of epic.
Speaking of epic, the rest of the game blows you away. Whenever you play a level the game doesn't ever forget to give you that feeling of, "Wow, holy cow that was awesome." The game is like its predecessors using a third person shooter style of play. Combat is dynamic and never fails to deliver. Melee attacks are up close and very personal with the fighting style being smooth, powerful and cool. Weather your in a falling plane or escaping a burning castle, Nathan Drake pulls of some serious action that would make Michael Bay, and Indiana Jones blush.
The story line keeps you going none stop, giving you a reason to love the characters and keep on playing.
After the spectacular Uncharted 2, many were left wondering how Naughty Dog could possibly outdo themselves. Well, simply put. They did. It is the reason I play games, how its the best storytelling I've seen in ages, rivaling many of Hollywood's finest. But you probably already know all this. Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception is fantastic in every aspect. The characters are so good, so well-acted, that you honestly feel like they're old friends. And of course, the gameplay is top-notch, (although there is one glitch about the 80% mark) and the story is the best of the Uncharted franchise, and one of the best in video-game history, sorry, scratch that; in story-telling as a whole. If you do not play this game, you are missing out. Forget console wars, forget fanboyism. Sit down on your couch and watch the beauty unfold. Whether it be the rays of light coming through trees, the characters expressions, or the masterful musical score; everyone must witness this game.
Pros: Come on, this is Uncharted. The characters, story, acting, gameplay, set-pieces, pretty much everything is awing. The graphics are mind-blowing, the best in console history. And the multiplayer is beyond superb, its fantastic. Defiantly worth your time.
Cons: There's one glitch that was frustrating. But a simple console restart fixed it.
I don't care who you are, or what console you prefer, Uncharted 3 is an adventure story-telling enthusiasts, action/adventure fan, or anyone who enjoys a good story backed by awesome gameplay owes it to themselves to play it. Although Drake's Deception lacks the 'punch' Among Thieves did cause now we expect this level of perfection from Naughty Dog, Uncharted 3 is the best game of the year so far (with Batman: AC close behind). So what are you waiting for? Go back to playing it, or if you're not, go and buy it now, and enjoy the adventure. You won't be disappointed, I promise.

This is the best game ive ever played. I went to my friends house today to play this bad boy on ps3 and its better than any xbox 360 game. Games like this prove that Playstation is better and will always be better. The graphics are incredible, even better than the second uncharted if thats even possible. And the gameplay is extremely smooth with no glitches or messups i have seen so far. Ive been caught up in the adventure and cant wait to see what happens at the end.
