Graphics = 10 By far Uncharted has some of the best visuals to date on any console. The environment seems to come alive and watching Drake move through that environment is just as visually stunning.
Gameplay = 9 No multiplayer. But this isnt the kind of game that requires nor needs it. There is plenty to do. Lots of treasures to fine and awards to unlock. It never gets old. It is however a little irritating that your enemies have no regard for each other. They will shoot right through a buddy to kill you while you go hand to hand with someone. They also often know exactly where you are even if they have never seen you. A little more realism here would have been nice.
Story = 10 The story is compelling to say the least. It has a few twists and is as original as it can be. There is plenty to keep you guessing.
Controls = 9 The controls while easy to use and very intuitive lack accuracy and are a bit sluggish. The camera moves a lot and that sometimes can cause problems but its necessary. Sluggishness aside you may find yourself thinking that your aiming perfectly towards a ledge to grab only to find yourself jumping into oblivion.
Overall Uncharted is a fantastic work of art and a must buy in my book. As of now there is no better game. This is it. This is the one. If I could give this a 9.5 I would. But it is much better than a 9. I give it a 10.

Great job Naughty Dog.
The characters, setting, story, controls, game play, replay value, EVERYTHING is top notch. From the very beginning to the very surprisingly long adventure end, you have to be on your toes. It has all the ingredients to what a good adventure game needs. Think Indiana Jones + Tomb Raider + Assassins Creed + alot of guns = one hellova good time.
If you like to make head shots, hunt for treasure, and enjoy a fairly long game with plenty to do ... get it. I've played throught the game about 5 times now, and will be playing it after I write this review.

This game is incredible! I wish I could give it a 15, has to be quite possibly the best game I have ever played. The story is great ( my wife watched me play thru it), the controls are great, the story is is kinda like a Indiana Jones type thing. You can pass the rent up and just buy it!
