    Awesome game. I have not had the time to play it myself, but I have watched my wife play through most of it and it is like playing through a fun action movie. I did play the multiplayer beta, and it was a lot of fun. Looking forward to playing this some myself when I have some time, and when I can steal it away from my wife!

    Masterpiece. It is one of them game , to , me that is like a fine piece of art. I hope this game does well in the market, because i would hate for this series to fall out of the loop especially to games like MMW 3.

    1st Mario, then Zelda, then came GTA and Halo. All exceptional junctures in gaming. Presently there's the Uncharted series. Altogether each and every episode (1 - 3) acquire and irresistible fascination. Perfect story telling, pacing, gameplay make each of these irresistible. A true pinnacle of gaming.

    Same at Uncharted 2, epic history. Developers make progress with graphic, have better textures and better AA, named MLAA. Locations are awesome with lots of details. Multiplayer same situation at U2, its just booring after long playing. So i not give a 10/10 but 9/10. Ohh and is a must have for every PS3 Player :P.

    Incredible at every turn. This game took what we love about Uncharted and just expanded it in every way. The story seems to start with the same old "Race to the treasure" feel the other two had. (Which isn't a bad thing, theyre both incredible games). But along the way the story branches out and gets you more invested in the characters. Over the top action... Check. Witty dialogue between characters... Check
    Enormous sets... Check
    This is one of those games that, for me, is the reason to play games.

    This game was simply put, AMAZING! I am biased because I fell in love with the first Uncharted and it would have been hard to sway me on any future titles BUT there are several components to this game which have never been incorporated in any other game developed...EVER. Simply put, this was the best Uncharted of the series. The story and plot were similar to the previous titles. Drake is basically the unluckiest man ever created in gaming and also the luckiest all in one package. This guy goes through hell and back! Play, love it, and play it again. Expand

    This game is amazing! Graphics are incredible, story is awesome, and the way everything is put together is stunning. A+ for sure, and I am only talking about the single player portion of the game. NaughtyDog brings it again, and should be up for another Game of the Year award.

    Graphics are amazing and the story is very solid. Multiplayer has improved from UC2's. The story is great but not as good as in Among Thieves. The voice acting and plot are great and add more depth to the overall series and provides some good back story. The gameplay and controls look and feel smoother as drake interacts with objects in the environment. Though the action sequences were also better in UC2. Drakes Deception is better than Drakes Fortune but not as good as Among Thieves. Expand

    Uncharted 3 is in general a big step up from Uncharted 2

    Naughty Dog is just simply the God of Developers in this Gen.They pushed the PS3 even harder over its limits and created the most beautiful game in this Gen only possible on the PS3.
    The Gameplay is fantastic and is fun.The Story good written and i love how they show something of the young Drake and how things went its way.
    Stunning Game

    Ok...this is getting old, it was bad enough 12 year old CoD fanboys were rating BF3 down, now they are rating this game down, and it's not even the same game, BlackRabbits is guilty of this! Anyways, awesome game, great theatrical experience from start to finish. If you own a PS3, you owe it to yourself to get this game.

    Good game, uncharted 1.75, overshadowed by the masterpiece that was uncharted 2. Good - better melee system, beautiful graphics, Bad - average storyline as apposed to uc 2 which had twists and was much more humorous.
    Ugly - you have to shoot enemies many times before they are killed.

    I am a huge fan of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and it absolutely blew my mind when I played it. The characters were great and the pacing of the single-player was perfect. The co-op and multiplayer efforts were great too and I enjoyed playing them with my friends. Two years after its release, Naughty Dog release a sequel, Uncharted 3. Of course, I was pumped and of course, the game is superb. The single-player, co-op and multiplayer are all top-notch and head and shoulders above their competition and anybody looking to buy this game because they loved its predecessor, go ahead and purchase it right away. There is one flaw with the game, though and it sticks out for people who have played the last game. The last several chapters of the single-player are WAY too familiar and they used the same plot-structure from Uncharted 2. I won't spoil anything, but I could basically make an equation out of Uncharted 2's last several chapters and it would fit perfectly with this game. That's a problem, considering how great Uncharted 2's story was and I was expecting something even greater from its sequel. Overall, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is still a superb game and fans of the series, PS3 owners and action game enthusiasts should purchase it right away. Expand

    Uncharted is known for one thing and that is for being great. I thought Uncharted 2 pushed the capabilities of the PS3 to the limit and that Naughty Dog couldn't have done any better but I was wrong. Uncharted 3 has massively improved its lighting and animations and feels as if your are playing an interactive movie instead of a game. The graphics are top notch, the gameplay is top notch and the multiplayer is so much fun. The story mode is a blast to play and the charm of this game is the humour. This is Game of the Year in my opinion and nothing can top this game. Stop reading reviews and buy this game already!!!!! Expand

    One of the best and most beautiful games I have ever played. Some times I had to stop and just admire the surroundings; is like being actually in those exotic locations. The games feels so much like a movie and the controls are so smooth that it will make you let go the controller to make sure you are controlling Nate. Definitely a 10 out of 10. If you haven't bought it yet... do it. It's worth every penny. Expand

    One of the most amazing games I have seen this generation, without a word Uncharted 3 is an improvement over Uncharted 2: Among thieves in every single aspect.
    The multiplayer which has been a huge change (for the good) is still one of the most addictive multiplayer experiences in 2011.
    Uncharted 3 takes everything that number 2 did good and just makes it 10x more epic.

    Uncharted 3's biggest problem is that all of it's competition tries to improve and expand as a sequel, Uncharted plays it safe and does alter the game too much. Uncharted 3 is not a bad game, especially to Uncharted fans like me, but I think that Uncharted 4 should change up the formula and try to be as memorable as Uncharted 2 was. 9.5/10

    Uncharted 3 is probably the most perfect game this year for me.. It has everything that you need to have.. However I felt like the storyline is too simple yet Uncharted 2 has better and deeper story. The trailer for U3 ggot me excited but the game itself doesn't excite me as much as the trailer. After all this game was brilliant and it is my game of the year..

    this game is amazing. Better than UC2 IMO. It builds on what UC2 did right and improves the game-play by further expanding the formula. it is a little shorter than the second installment but it is worth every penny. I guarantee satisfaction

    The follow up to one of the greatest games of all time (UC2) Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception does not disappoint. One of the greatest story campaigns I personally have ever played. Multiplayer is top notch and extremely fun and balanced. Graphics and there is nothing that comes close to this game on consoles

    Uncharted 3 was one of the greatest video games I have ever played. From the graphics to the gameplay. Everything was top notch. The characters seemed believable and the awesome story mode made me want to not turn it off. I was at the edge of my seat as I was hanging from a cliff or falling out of a plane.

    Overall, U3 is not perfect. The linear gameplay makes way for its strengths and weaknesses: cinematic and technological advances with tight level design versus gamer choice, and less challenge. What remains though, is still the pinnacle of the modern console: an engineered experience. This is a one of a kind game that cannot be recommended more. Some might argue that Among Thieves is the better game, but the improved technology and the manner in which emotion is explored takes the Uncharted template and creates something not new, but better. It is the ultimate Uncharted experience. Expand

    Uncharted 3 doesnt just feel like a video game. It feels like your watching a movie with an excellent story. The twists and turns throughout the game and the gameplay overall make this game one of the greatest game of all time. I considered Uncharted 2 my favorite game before this one. Every gamer should buy this game.

    After being a bit disappointed with Uncharted 2, which I believe to be overhyped, I was interested to see how UC3 fared. Overall, it's a much better game. The gameplay and graphics are still pretty much exactly the same with minor additions to the fighting and some new weapons. However, unlike UC2, I was never bored when playing the story. There were moments in UC2 that felt like more of a chore than a fun activity but they have eradicated that in this game. The story and voice acting are amazing once again and all the levels are different, always offering something new, which was the main thing UC2 lacked in my opinion. Definitely a must have for any PS3 owner. Expand

    Uncharted is a great series, the first installment was a great if somewhat flawed explosion onto the PS3, feeding the hunger for an Indy type character which we all love, giving us the heady mix of exploration, albeit linear, puzzles and combat. I loved the first game, the second more, it really pushed the envelope in story telling, character development and an affection for the characters usually lacking in the wooden one dimensional people that normally populate video game land. Where 2 was a jaw dropping kick up the arschenholler for most developers, I feel that 3 does'nt quite hit the same high tide mark. I loved the steady build of London and the excellent Drake as a youth levels. Something didnt quite just click. The graphics as to be expected of Naughty Dog were exceptional, but the usually well fleshed out enemies were missing. The Helen Mirren baddie wasnt explained enough, nor her underling. Though he looked suspiciously like the English bloke from 2. For all the spectacle, and it was spectacular, I felt that some of the heart was missing. Cutter, who was great, disappeared in the second act along with Chloe. Elena barely made an entrance. It seemed that in the early part of the game, puzzles were abundant and a definate refinement over previous efforts, but beyond that they disappeared totally. Gunplay was a bit wonky with the cover mechanic being hit and miss at best. Also the fact that enemies know where you are, even if they cant have possibly seen you in cover, but pour masses of fire onto you anyway was a bit lame. It also felt like it was all over a bit to soon, and lacked a real climax ( the escape from the collapsing city was was awesome visually) it just lacked a bit of occasion as i didnt really care about the baddies or know enough about them. Overall a good entry but not what i was hoping for after the second one. Expand

    I Love the Uncharted series! It's something all of my friends know and Uncharted 2 is the game that made me proud to own a PS3. Uncharted 3 is an amazing sequel and is well deserving of the praise that it's getting from the Media and from all the users on Metacritic. Something that this game does better than the past 2 games is the Storytelling. The story is magnificent. If there is one thing that Uncharted fans wanted from the past game is that there would be a lot more Sully. This game has Sully, a LOT of Sully. I can't get enough of the guy, probably one of my favourite side characters in video game history. The sound is top notch, The music is great and the graphics are the best the PS3 has to offer. The Gameplay is smooth but there is a few kinks that need to be fixed, regardless, it's still very solid and very well done. A must buy for any PS3 owner. Expand

    Sequel after sequel, Naughty Dog continues to redefine the series and create an immersive and satisfying game. Among Thieves raised the bar of cinematic storytelling, and Drake's Deception raises it even more. The epic scale of this game is truly amazing and sometimes you will push pause just to take in its massive scale. Naughty Dog tweaked the controls and made them more fluid and and seamlessly progress the story. In addition to the satisfying story mode, Multiplayer is back with more depth and customization, surely to keep you busy for many hours after the single player campaign Naughty Dog can and should pat themselves on the back for making a true gaming experience no one should miss.

    I completed this game and i have no faults with it. The story is very good with a nice length to too long and definitely not too short. The range of difficulties are good for everyone and how they like to play the game. The story in this uncharted helps give Drake more of a back round that the other tow games have not. It shows more about his history. The online is also very good with many game mods with your multiplayer matches and your co-op matches. You can also play offline with a friend on these modes. Expand

    The Uncharted serious comes full circle. This is hands down the most complete package Naughty Dog has offered so far. The story does suffer some of the same problems as the first two, and the conclusion is seen a mile away, however the ride Drake takes you on is well worth the price of admission.

    The multiplayer has received numerous upgrades, and will keep you coming back for hours after
    the main story is done. The game is a must have for series fans, and great for those new to the Uncharted world. A word of caution, if you haven't played the first two, you will want to catch up before diving in head first. Expand

    Great game. Graphics and sound are top notch, although UC2's story was a bit better, some of the characters in the game seem forced into it since it's a sequal, but it's still entertaining. Only knock on it is the controls don't seem as smooth as UC2, I feel like I'm fighting my character sometimes to do what I want them to do. That's the only thing that stopped me from giving it a 10.

    This game is totaly amazing.After the first two games;I'd been waiting for a sequel.I preordered and waited till 11.1.2011. When I started;i was disappointed a little;coz the graphics were the same with second game.But when the 2nd chapter in Cartagena started; my jaw was dropped.The lightning effects were amazing and there are lots of npcs.We only saw some in Tibet chapters in second game;so I thought it will be 10x better from AT.When we go to France,i said "Oh,no!Jungle again?" But then; it wasn't like what i was thinking.Especially; the puzzle.

    The Chase in Yemen,sinking cruise ship and cargo plane sections were incredible.But the best part was Desert,where we searched for Sully.Only bad thing about single player campaign is the last 30 minutes.Coz i was waiting for an epic ending.

    Multiplayer is amazing in someways.Pumping taunt is a really joy.Mods are good,big content and great fun.If u want to buy 3 games this year,one must be Uncharted 3.

    Anyone who says that this game isn't great clearly does NOT know the meaning of great. Uncharted 3 has got to be one of the best games out there this year, it boats in a extremely good graphics engine, fun online play a good storyline and a fair amount of challenging puzzles, furthermore it's one of the only games I've played that lest you save and upload videos from a chosen online match. Maybe i am exaggerating it just a bit, but with a game that i enjoyed and loved as much as this i have every right to, if your an uncharted fan and have yet to play this let me spell it out for you, you will love Drakes Deception - plain and simple.

    It's a very good game, recommendable, the only problem is the lag of the sight when aiming but does not affect many amenities that you play on hard.
    The graphics left me shocked and over the sands, when you walk as you can see the textures, and when they fall.
    Naughty Dog is definitely a very good title sac that exceeds the previous one in many respects.

The hard work ND put forth is visible and should be acknowledged .From beginning to end this game displays a team of talented group of people that love and care what they do with a passion ,I've played video games my whole life and it's evolving and Uncharted is pure proof of that.

    To start I think people need to realize that we are ranking a game, not a series. Some of these lower rating are being given because it is being compared to UC 1 and UC 2. The Uncharted series is beyond any ranking, it is something movie writers and creators cannot even come close to doing. That being said, Uncharted 3 is a great game! To start the storyline is wonderful, the games play is great, and the on line play is enjoying. Now like I said it is a awesome game in an even better series of games. People are getting caught up comparing it to Uncharted 2 (which in my opinion is greatest game ever made) and of course by comparing it to that it will receive a lower score. You need to look at this game only and not the others in the series and by doing that it will receive a 10/10. I even starting thinking of this game and ranking it lower then it should be. I realized that I was comparing it to UC 1 and UC 2. Once I thought of the game play of UC 3, I then realized that I need to review the game not the series. Trust me, buy the game you will not be disappointed! It does start off a little slower then the others, but it is to create the storyline. If I do have one complaint in the game it would be the final boss fight. There is no long fight sequence in the final fight like the other games, but it is a cool scenario and ending that you are in. I cannot wait for more games in the franchise and to see the Uncharted series continue to grow will be great! Expand

    Uncharted 3 According to me and of it sets a gold standard for video gaming by proving that video games are more than just a game they are the best form of entertainment uncharted 3 takes every mechanics from uncharted 1 and uncharted 2 and improves each and every mechanics including graphics which many thought couldn't be improved more than uncharted 2.This only proves one thing unchrted is the gratest gaming franchise of this generation and probably ever.Also Naughty Dog is the best.I Love You guys.

    Uncharted 3, probably one of the best games I've ever played in my whole life! Tensive from the minute you press "New Game", and a lot of big climaxes that makes you feel like you're just watching an awesome action movie that you want to see over, and over again! It also has a lot of replay-ability because of the insane chapters you want to replay for like a million times, for example Plane and the Chateau chapter. The online and (split-screen) coop multiplayer are both fun and makes you come back for more. With one of the best singleplayer campaigns of all time and a very amusing multiplayer, Uncharted 3 is probably one of the best games you will ever buy in your whole life! Expand

    Visually Uncharted 3 is absolutely stunning. I've grown to expect nothing less from Naughty Dog with in all 3 of the Uncharted Series. The control style of Drake changed slightly this time around, with some 3rd person type chase scenes that were every bit as dramatic as one would expect in an Uncharted game. Enemies are "smarter" and it seems the average difficulty is higher than its predecessors. This game deserves to be a contender in the game of the year category. You truly felt like you were Nathan Drake during cut scenes. Expand

It looks like 2 part but it is better and detailed. game have more interesting and funny levels. Co-op not so good like single player, but this game not about that. And multiplayer is one of the best multiplayer that I have ever saw in action games. I recommend that game for everyone. Expand

    Uncharted 3 doesn't disappoint, with a exciting story, an enjoyable multiplayer and arguably the best graphics out of any game. However, after a while you run out of things to do, especially in Single-Player, but nonetheless, a must-buy for any PS3 owner.

    One of my least favourite games of all time. Graphics and sound absolutely shine, this is a good looking game, even by 2014 standards. But that's it. The whole game basically boils down to a pattern of explore, gunfight, and solve puzzle over and over again through 22 chapters of tedium. To be fair, the exploring is basically okay and the puzzles are just the right level of difficulty. But the gunfights will make you regret buying a PS3. They happen at the wrong times, just as a scene's rhythm is gathering steam. Deaths in gunfights often feel cheap and the enemies are bullet sponges, sometimes needing 6 or 7 rounds to go down. I have much respect for Naughty Dog, but I'm won't spend 60 dollars on a 20 hour game with no replay value ever again. If I hadn't played this game for free via my PlayStation Plus subscription, I would have never had played it. Expand

    This is the greatest game i have ever played. from graphics to gameplay, from gameplay to story telling. This had it all. The graphics, at first glance, don't appear much better, but at a closer look, the detail is a lot better than "Among Thieves" and went well with everything that was going on. The frame rate never dropped no matter what was going on below 60 fps. The sand was without a doubt, the best effects i have ever seen in a video game. From clinging to Drake's hair, to falling down slopes when he walked on the edge. The water was even better than ever, it acted as if it was real; same with the fire. The fire moved as though Naughty Dog programmed oxygen or something to eat up wood. The gameplay was better than anything i have ever seen. Hand to hand fighting was actually fun, and not boring like the first two where you would rather shoot instead. The game moved with epic set pieces in the most random places and in ways without disrupting what was going on. Example: you would be fighting and something would explode and the whole level would tilt and the environment would react to what would happen in real life. The gun-play is better than ever also. It is more accurate than before. allowing you to see your enemies further, the guns act very real for a third person shooter. The story as the back-cover summary says on the case, details around the relationship between Nathan and Sullivan, this time. it's not so much treasure questing this time around. The game tells the story of everything about them as a son and father sort of way. You find things out about Nathan that makes you wonder about future games. With twists in the story randomly there are very emotional parts that can bring tears to your eyes just watching. The voice acting is top notch, very few games reach this level of awesomeness. The replay value is very high, until you beat story mode. The online isn't all that as usual, but that's not stopping me from keeping it to replay it again one day. This is one game that should be labeled game of the decade. From beginning to end. It was non-stop heart racing action that ends in a surprising and satisfying way. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception only for PlayStation 3 THE GREATEST GAME EVER. And yes i do also have an Xbox 360 and have played nearly every big game on it. This beats all Expand

    Uncharted 3 is the reason we play video games. The Uncharted series just keeps getting better and better. They've taken every exciting big action event from all of your favourite action movies, and rolled them up into one fantastic video game. I'm disappointed that more games aren't made to this caliber. I would someday like to see the graphics and feel of Uncharted added to an RPG.

    In short - Monumental. The previous mistakes Naughty Dog had made in the inclusion of the cliche supernatural enemies has been done far better this time around, as it arises to be slightly ambiguous and allowing to point fingers at the enemies existence. This element has been one of the major drawbacks to the previous games in the series, and ambiguity has helped this third installment from falling into the same hole. Apart from this the narrative is far more interesting, involving flashbacks, interesting dream sequences, with clear inspirations from classic masterpieces in cinema like Lawrence of Arabia. The action is packed, and the rhythm is brilliant. Generally most single player experiences lose me half way, but here I played the game from start to finish in a single sitting. Mind you the game is short, but great things always come to an end quickly, but are forever remembered. This game is not only the best in the series, but is the best Playstation 3 game ever made. I believe the whole middle half of this game continually keeps surprising. They keep throwing more and more on you, and the game just doesn't let down. From battling on boats, to catching a plane, to landing in the desert, the game will chain you to the moments. Also don't worry about the controls or the gameplay, it's as fluid as ever and far superior to the zero recoil and lack of muzzle climb you'd find in the unrealistic interpretations during the last installments. Then there's multi-player, and expect to be playing this one a whole lot longer than the last due to the in depth progression system made to keep up with the times, and the awesome assortment of possible load-outs minus game breaking perks like classic COD stopping power. In end you'll be asking yourself do I go with weapon expert or fleet foot? That will be one of the many hard choices you will have playing this game, what won't be a hard choice however, will be deciding on whether to pick up this game. Highly Recommended Expand

    Great, but multiplayer takes too long to set up.
    The uncharted series has always kept up its insanely high standards, Uncharted 2 making it into IGN's game of the year. Uncharted 3 expands on the success making everything bigger better and raising the stakes. I won't say too much about the story, but i can say that it is pretty short. Thats one of the downsides. Uncharted 2 packed in
    multiplayer, but i never touched it, mostly because it was too hard to find a match and it took too long to load. This is the same here, but since the game is newer, there ARE people playing. Right now its pretty easy to find a match and it is pretty easy to set up, but takes much longer than games like Call of duty, then again, those games are mainly for multiplayer so i cant say much.

    In the end, the package is relatiely short, but sweet. If your looking for a great game to last you the summer, pick up uncharted 3, and while your at it, pick up the first two like i did.

    Direct mirror of the amazing Uncharted 2, with even more explosive adventure. UC3 is designed with so much care and heart into it that is shines so bright on the PS3. If it ain't broke don't fix it, that would true but Naughty Dog out done themselves by not copying and pasting but instead made it so much better than its predecessor. If you thought UC2 looked so good UC3 will sparkle brighter when you play it, it's playing a movie while watching it at the same time. Expand

    The number one game on PS3 right now, if not ever.
    It was an amazing journey from start to finish, the gameplay, graphics and story are as always from the Uncharted franchise second-to-none.
    An added bonus is the challenging yet not too difficult list of trophies you can collect (Unlike most games with the silly hard to get multiplayer ones).
    On the lines of multiplayer, I find it a huge
    step up from Among Thieves, the added features are a master class from Naughty Dog.
    This game is a must own and if your reading this review you must be interested in it, so stop thinking about it and get out there and buy it!

    Uncharted 2 was the first game I ever bought for my PS3 and I loved that game! Fun and challenging campaign and an amazing multiplayer that I played just about everyday...until the Uncharted 3 beta came out. The beta for Uncharted 3 was so good, it was better than many other released AAA games. So I had high expectations for Uncharted 3. I bought Uncharted 3 on release date and played through the campaign first, as I do with all games. The campaign had a decent story line. Some of the puzzles didn't seem well thought out and one in particular felt clunky, like Drake wasn't going where I wanted him to go or do what I wanted. I read a review that said Drake walks like a drunken sailor in some parts and i noticed the same thing. Particularly annoying is that, for some reason, the devs created an OCD Drake that feels compelled to touch every wall as he passes by. Why? It seemed contrived as if they wanted to give him a personality tick that would make him seem more "real." But it was just real annoying. I mean even during chases, Drake has to stick out his had and touch walls. He didn't do that in Uncharted 1 or 2, so why does he suddenly have this OCD compulsion to touch walls as he walks by. Please get rid of that in UC4. However, in every other aspect, the game excels. The campaign was just the right length, not overacted, good pacing from scene to scene, good variety of weapons, good fights, and beautiful graphics. Some scenes were visually stunning, like the airplane scene and the desert scene. I gotta say the campaign was a little too easy and everyone seems to be platinum-ing it in days. Probably the easiest platinum I've ever achieved. But the multiplayer is where this game shines. The multiplayer is actually better than Uncharted 2, which is a great accomplishment by the developers. The maps are good and diverse and some have changing environments. For example, you can be in a match, and suddenly there is a blinding dust storm and you play through it. I also like the buddy system where you are paired with another player, which has advantages. I also like the powerplay aspect which helps even out the odds between mismatched teams. Uncharted 3 has a solid campaign and a stellar multiplayer that no other game out there can beat. Way to go Naughty Dog. Expand

    A great game, the series Uncharted is a reference of its kind. Uncharted 3 does not give the qualitative leap that gave uncharted 2, but is the perfect coda to a unique trilogy on PS3. Good graphics, cinematic style and lots of action.

    Uncharted 3 is a good game don't get me wrong, but it just doesn't feel right to me. The first 4 chapters are extremely boring and the bar fight and playing with little drake were fun but it just felt too tedious. One small shootout later back to the old boring feel in chapter 6. To me it's to easy and the gunfights just don't seem exhilerating. The graphics are by far the best ever in a video game though!!!!! The multiplayer just isn't that good and not a reason why you should buy this game. Uncharted 2 : Among Thieves is still the best game on the ps3!!! Expand

    One of the greatest adventure games of all time. Uncharted 3 is so good I really cant think of anything bad to say about it. The gameplay is flawless, the story is unpredictable and definitely worthy of multiple playthroughs ( im on my 3rd playthough), the charecters are memorable and superbly acted, the mutliplayer is fun and addictive, and the thing i enjoyed most about the game is that it gives you so many ways to play the game. There are segments in the game where you can choose to go in guns blazing or you can take a more stealthier approach. What this game does the best though is making you care about the characters and what is happening to them. There are some moments in the game where i literally had my jaw on the floor such as the cargo plane sequence and the infamous cruise ship level. I cant stress enough how much i enjoy this game. If you have a ps3 go buy this game now i guarantee you wont be disappointed. If you dont have a ps3 go out and buy one then buy this game its that good. Expand

I had many other anticipated games available (Skyrim, 2k12, MW3, BF3) and yet THIS particular game kept getting inserted into my PS3. This game is so much like a movie and just shows how talented Naughty Dog actually is. From Uncharted: Drake's Fortune to this recent installment I am shocked that Naughty Dog still raises the bar.

    This game is totaly amazing.After the first two games;I'd been waiting for a sequel.I preordered and waited till 11.1.2011. When I started;i was disappointed a little;coz the graphics were the same with second game.But when the 2nd chapter in Cartagena started; my jaw was dropped.The lightning effects were amazing and there are lots of npcs.We only saw some in Tibet chapters in second game;so I thought it will be 10x better from AT.When we go to France,i said "Oh,no!Jungle again?" But then; it wasn't like what i was thinking.Especially; the puzzle.

    The Chase in Yemen,sinking cruise ship and cargo plane sections were incredible.But the best part was Desert,where we searched for Sully.Only bad thing about single player campaign is the last 30 minutes.Coz i was waiting for an epic ending.

    Multiplayer is amazing in someways.Pumping taunt is a really joy.Mods are good,big content and great fun.If u want to buy 3 games this year,one must be Uncharted 3.
