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.
"Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" is an incredible thrill ride that features terrific action set pieces, a well written story, and some beautiful visuals. The voice cast as always for the Uncharted games is solid, with Nolan North turning in another excellent performance as Drake. The new villainthe great s is fairly good, and the enemy AI works well. The melee combat has been improved since Uncharted 2, giving you a counter button in additional to the standard attack. Naughty Dog seems to have borrowed a bit from Rocksteady, even ending brawls in slow motion. While fun, fighting larger enemies bogs down to the same sequence, and even the animations remain the same. It's satisfying, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more variety. Gunplay likewise has been tweaked, though the targeting can still be dicey at times, even in scenes when the environment isn't constantly moving. And there are several sequences where the environment can be dizzying, adding a level of excitement to the gun fights. For all the pluses, there are still a couple of flaws that keep this from being a masterpiece. The camera is not always your friend, sometimes obscuring foes until they're on top of you punching your lights out. The camera also at times leads to some unnecessary deaths, as it can be hard to line up a jump on occasion. The controls work fairly well, but feel loose at times, again leading to an untimely demise. Checkpoints are fairly liberal, so dying won't set you back too far. One playthrough will take you between 8-10 hours, making it a slightly shorter campaign than the previous two games (it contains 22 chapters like the first game, the 2nd had 26, making it a little longer). There is multiplayer and co-op for those who play that, but I usually only focus on the solo campaign. This game is a near perfect adventure, with a great musical score and great action to carry you along for the ride. Definitely a must play at least once, if not more for the great story. Enjoy!
I don't even know what to write. Everything is perfect. New combat has some fantastic features. Story is great. Best Graphics of all time. Voice is superb (of course) Seriously, there's no point in talking about it. PLAY IT. You have a PS3, play this series. If you don't have a PS3, buy one and all 3 Uncharted games. They are that good.
