    Honestly one of the greatest experiences i have ever had playing a game. Nolan North and crew once again pull off performances that put movie actors to shame. The writing was top notch and all though some bits of plot were not tied up at the end of the game, the overall story was incredible.

    Best video game franchise ever created. Truly lives up to it's expectation especially after all the success off of Uncharted 2. The story telling is nothing less than stellar where the game truly plays out like a movie. I can't wait till what Naughty Dog comes out with next!

    imo better than uncharted 2. everything in the gameplay has been refined, for example, throwing back grenades, and the melee combat, which is actually fun this time around. the story is also a lot better, tighter and easier to follow. the set pieces are fantastic, as are the characters, the visuals are the best of any game on any console, as is the sound and production values....thisimo better than uncharted 2. everything in the gameplay has been refined, for example, throwing back grenades, and the melee combat, which is actually fun this time around. the story is also a lot better, tighter and easier to follow. the set pieces are fantastic, as are the characters, the visuals are the best of any game on any console, as is the sound and production values....this campaign is just perfectly placed and is a blast to play through multiple times. Multiplayer is also alot better this time around because it gives you a better sense of progression...and of course the co-op is fun as hell. usually i hate playing online, but i actually dug this multiplayer and co-op. all in all a great overall package
    some issues: sometimes drakes movements are a little awkward, 1 or 2 spots in the campaign where the firefights are a bit too long, sometimes enemies seem to sense you even when you are not spotted....aside from this small flaws, this game is just awesome.

    A very thrilling game with dynamic set pieces and a blockbuster story. The difficulty spikes at times due to cheap enemy encounters but overall one of the best games of the year. It does not truly top its predecessor but still fantastic.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. And so, the game is passed. I got the game very much. Let's start with the pluses and advantages of the game.
    Compared with the second part was much better graphics, animations, just an excellent, even rumpled clothes on the characters walking. Level design at an altitude of forests and beautiful cities I have not seen even a bare desert looks terrific, with pleasure on her wandering. Level design is made in the game at the highest level of the huge and beautiful, interesting caves. Cinematic in the game is made with more quality, even film can not shoot enough to make up a large chunk of all videos from the game. And most importantly, the plot. In the third part, he has become a major component of the game, and here the history of the past characters and secrets.
    And now about the cons, they unfortunately are.
    The biggest minus for me, which I did as I can not forgive the developers, this is an artificial intelligence of enemies. Or rather complete lack of intelligence. Home and the only tactic the enemy, it's going to break any means at Drake, through the bullets, grenades through, but the main goal of the enemy to come into focus and shoot! They did not on that they can not. The same intelligence is absent and teammates. Basically, they just stand and comment on, or what is happening, or the death of Drake. And so they killed someone, it's just a holiday. A bit repetitive enemies, but not normal, that regularly try to kill Drake and burly, with whom we must fight in close quarters. Of course it was very interesting when the fight was so husky in the bar or on the plane, but when they are found in almost every chapter, it begins to pall. Well, not without its monsters, big hairy gorilla and blue mutants. It is true there were demons, but a huge thanks to developers that they were not long, but not the whole ending of the game. There were technical flaws. Enemies often pass through walls or objects, Drake did not doprygival or not enough for benches. There is yet another disappointment for me. Why is it now a lot of action and too little jumps, acrobatics, rock climbing and adventure.
    That's only because the enemy AI and I lowered the score of the game, other shortcomings, I can forgive, but for a great multiplayer and out of respect for the developers for such an incredible game, I would add one point to the total assessment.
    As a result, 10 points, the game deserves it.

    Surprisingly challenging. Combat is slightly improved over its predecessors - bullets hit harder and Drake has some new melee moves. It's just fun to play all the way around. Naughty Dog is constantly changing up the game play type and surroundings to keep things always feeling fresh and different. A must-own for PS3 enthusiasts.

    I actually had a more enjoyable time playing through Uncharted 2, but Uncharted 3 is an excellent sequel to Naughty Dog's best work to date. Everything here is excellent, except the aiming, which has been discussed here and elsewhere on the web. The story was well done, well paced, and wonderfully presented. Somehow ND squeezed an extra bit of graphical umph out of the PS3 for this one.

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

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.

However, even though I've given this game the highest possible score, I will critique it by copy pasting a passage I read from a critics review not long ago. "Uncharted 3 shows more people and more places, but tells players less. Gamers felt like they knew Nathan Drake at the end of Uncharted 2, at least a little.

    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.

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

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

    This game has arguably the best story out of all three installments by far. The story is nothing short of fantastic or beautiful. Otherwise, not much is to be said in terms of gameplay as it's nearly identical to the previous titles.

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.

This game surpassed some of those demos for me, and at certain points it was unreal to me that I was actually playing a video game.

    The waves impact with the elements around the levels, and the water floating back and forth on the surface as the rain poured down, took my breath away. Climbing on the walls of a ship, not knowing which way is up was disorienting and intriguing. Chasing someone through the corridors of an old town and seeing the care that has gone into the polygons in the background is one of the things that truly separates Uncharted 3 from the competition. The game as a whole consists of so many beautiful moments, both in regards to the the story and the presentation.

    Combining elements of regret, loyalty, and adventure. The story is about a man with an unclear motivation, on a pursuit of buried secrets of the past, and the narrative builds around how his ambitions affect the people around him, allowing the player to get involved in the characters, and relate to them, which is unusually deep for a video game.

    Naughty Dog as a studio has grown so much in the last years, and they have accomplished most of the challenges they have bestowed upon themselves for this game. Some have claimed the game is too cinematic and linear, but considering that it's what the Adventure genre has always been about, it's kind of like saying a comedy film made you laugh too much. In truth, the Uncharted series doesn't really do much that hasn't been done before, but rather builds upon the best elements of gaming and perfects it - taking it to a whole other level. Although not the same leap forward as Uncharted 2, the game is certainly not any less ambitious. And to say that this game has succeeded my expectations would be an understatement.

    After waiting for one of my most anticipated games of 2011, and finally (FINALLY) getting to play it, I'm very pleased to say that Uncharted 3 is a huge step ahead of its predecessor. The graphics are yet again jaw-dropping (the cargo plane may be epic, but the desert is, for lack of a better word, beautiful). I firmly believe that the plot is miles ahead of previous iterations. And theAfter waiting for one of my most anticipated games of 2011, and finally (FINALLY) getting to play it, I'm very pleased to say that Uncharted 3 is a huge step ahead of its predecessor. The graphics are yet again jaw-dropping (the cargo plane may be epic, but the desert is, for lack of a better word, beautiful). I firmly believe that the plot is miles ahead of previous iterations. And the multiplayer was extremely impressive.

    In fact, after playing both the July Beta and the Subway Promo, I don't think there's one other aspect in the Uncharted 3 experience that amazed me than what they did to the multiplayer. One of the biggest complaints found in the previous betas was the staggering amount of blindfiring, particularly because of how easy it was to rack up kills by doing it, and just for experimentation, I tried blindfiring myself multiple times in the full game. Now it doesn't feel like an tactic--it feels downright risky to use, and I don't think I earned a single kill from using it. The multiplayer, thus, feels very balanced and offers a much more rich experience than Uncharted 2 ever did. One of my most favorite inclusions is a new feature called Missions, where you have to complete a certain objective in a certain amount of time. There are around 150 of these missions, and if you plan to complete them all (and I do), it's going to take an insane amount of time to do it. These missions are so great because activating them gives the player (in my personal experience) so much incentive to play and win; no longer is the multiplayer just a rank-up and unlock system--though there's plenty of that here--it becomes a much more personal experience of accomplishment that I only ever found in a single-player game. Along with the handful of multiplayer packs soon to be released, I find this game to have insane reply value. It makes up a lot for what I find to be disappointing in this game.

    The biggest fault in UC3 stems not from its multiplayer, its graphics, or its story. In fact, I find it hard to place my finger on exactly what seems wrong with it. Apart from the few bugs I found during gameplay--which is excusable seeing how large this game is--nothing seems entirely lackluster in the experience that I had, and what an experience it is. Yet as the game came to a close and the credits began to roll, I couldn't help but find myself in a bit of disappointment. No spoilers, I promise, but the last few hours of gameplay did feel a bit rushed compared to how amazing the first half of the game is, for me anyway. It seems to suffer from some of the same faults that Uncharted 2 did; that is, where Sully was absent, Elena and Chloe made up for, and it seems to be the other way around this time. Likewise, the last few hours doesn't impressive nearly as much as what the beginning sets the game up for. Uncharted 3 is not a disappointment by any means, but it suffers a bit from some of the issues found in its predecessor, and the fact that they arrive yet again is a bit saddening. Yet I find it hard to believe that there will be anything out there as incredible as Uncharted 3 was, at least for a while. Is it the best game on PS3? Maybe. It holds a vast amount of polish, save for a few bugs, but the single-player suffers from meeting player expectations without going over-the-top with them, and I can't say it was as impactful as Uncharted 2 was. Maybe it's my own fault for holding expectations too high, and that's why I'm not going to bash the game. It's still an excellent experience that anyone can hope to enjoy. The experience is blast all the way to the end; it's when you get to the end that you find yourself wanting a little more.

    I'll stop there I suppose. Stop reading this and go buy this game, because its pros more than make up for its cons. The single-player is a unique experience that, while not perfect, certainly excels in many of the places that Uncharted 2 fell a little short. The multiplayer is a completely different ball game, giving players what I personally believe to be "the go-to multiplayer experience". The package as a whole is something that PS3 players must not miss out on. In everyone's eyes, it may not be as great as Uncharted 2, but it sure comes pretty darn close.

    Hello. In this review, I will discuss another Naughty Dog creation, Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception.

    Uncharted 3 had so much potential just like Uncharted 2, but it fell just short. One thing I remember about Uncharted 2 was how I felt at the end of the game. It was the first game I had ever finished where I just sat there and smiled. I felt so satisfied from the entire game I couldn't wait to continue the adventure.

The gameplay is pretty much the same, it is the overall story that just seemed to lack. We didn't have the cross character interactions we had in the first two. Especially the two female characters. Overall it is still a good game, but not perfect like the second one was. A must though for anyone who owns a ps3! Expand

    Uncharted 2 was the best made game so far, now it is Uncharted 3. It has (minor) issues (Shooting felt a bit strange at first, also had some very minor bugs/glitches which is pretty atypical for Naughty Dog quality), but overall it's the best interactive experience there ever was.

    The gameplay is fluid, even less emphasizing on shooting (still too much overall). The pacing is perfect

    The gameplay is fluid, even less emphasizing on shooting (still too much overall).
    The pacing is perfect (again).
    The voice acting is perfect (again).
    How the story is told is perfect (again).
    The characters are awesome.
    The visual quality is breathtaking.
    The animations are one-of-a-kind in the gaming universe.
    The details are mesmerizing.
    The quality of every aspect of videogame making is miles ahead of any other game out there.
    Scenes inspired by Ico or Journey (Desert) are beyond amazing and nowhere to be found in any other mainstream action game.

    Cons: Too short (about 7 hours) - but better too short than too long (which modern games fortunately "get" since some years)
    The enemies in the beginning looked a bit strange (too much of the same suits)
    Some (very) minor bugs (Orchestra starts or stops abruptly in 2 places, a scene "clipped" one time)

    And finally the ending in an Uncharted game was as amazing as the other parts of the game (which it wasn't in Uncharted 1 & 2)

    Overall, it wasn't a step as it was with Uncharted to Uncharted 2, but that obviously isn't the game's fault. It's just the fact, that Uncharted 2 already was perfect (the end boss aside).
    10 has nothing do with being (completely) "perfect". It shows where it stands in comparison to other games. There isn't any other game which comes close to the quality that Naughty Dog creates.

    I feel like the gameplay was a step up from the last as well as the multiplayer. The story on the other hand, has taken a hit. It felt like it was a bit rushed (the last quarter of the game showcased this). As always, the visuals were very impressive except for a few of the cutscenes which looked washed out. Overall all, a pretty solid game with multiplayer that will keep you busy for a week.

    Let me just start by saying that this game has the best graphics ever, and its competitor has no chance of ever matching this. The game itself is as you would expect, good. Though I must point out some poor points. The campaign is too short, I managed to complete it on normal in 7 hours, where as uncharted 2 took me around 12 hours.

Also the controls fell a little sloppy in places and cause many funerals on Nathan Drakes behalf. Also the online feels like it was just tacked on, i really cant say i enjoyed it. I would advise renting this game over buying it, as after your done with the campaign there is little point in returning, unless you like the multiplayer, or like to boss collectables Expand

    I just finished the game and I feel that I just played a very good game, with an amazing story (ok, the end is not so good) and an impressive graphic. For me it's not a 10 for 2 reason: too short (that doesn' t mean just"few hours"; things just flew too fast, giving a strange sensation) and too similar to uncharted 2.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have told myself that Uncharted 2 was my second favorite game of all time. When I heard that Uncharted 3 was coming out, I was excited at first but then got scared as I wondered can this game topple the second game...YES! YES IT CAN...but it's not a breath of fresh air though.

    Pros:
    -This is an experience. One Minute your watching a cutscene then suddenly you are controlling Drake as he walks through the desert. Only moment, I am going to spoil. Other moments you got to see for yourself. Let's not mention that a lot of the gameplay is dynamic therefore the world constantly moves around you even if it is a set path. Hopefully game designer will take notes from this making more similar experiences in the future.
    -Naughty Dog once agains pushes the PS3 even further, with better looking character models, and photo-realistic locales.
    -Melee Combat has provided more of a challenge to the game.
    -It's Uncharted.

    Cons:
    -The plot while still good loses focus and in retrospect is the same exact set up as U2. U2: Drake finds the lost city of Shamballa. U3: Drake finds the lost Atlantis of the Sands.
    -Action moments while still a blast once again draw simliar to U2. Hell at one point, a character even says Deja Vu, huh?
    -Some Multiplayer changes are unneeded.
    -There are bugs, but none that are obnoxious.

    Overall, Uncharted 3 takes the franchise a step further even if this game is not as refreshing as Uncharted 2 was compared to to the first one. There is no doubt that you will not go wrong with Uncharted 3. WHAT ARE YOU DOING GO BUY IT NOW!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm a great fan of the series. So I was really excited about this game and read many of the reviews. So when I played the game, some of the comments in those reviews did go through my head. Many people felt that this game was good but that it did not live up to the hype, as it was evolutionary, as opposed to revolutionary as was Uncharted 2. I will have to agree with them.

    GAMEPLAY
    I did enjoy the fighting mechanics, but feel there is a little more that can be done there. I haven't really played any of the Batman games, but hear the fighting mechanics are pretty good. I think ultimately, Naughty dog's team could improve this aspect even further for the next game. I also think, it could be cool to have some fighting using different weapons that Nate could pick up (like blunt objects or swords).

    The shooting dynamic of the game was not very different from Uncharted 2, but somehow the aiming was a bit harder this time. I got better at it at the end of the game, but it did need getting used to. PLATFORMING
    The platforming aspect is still enjoyable but sometimes the hints of where to jump next are a bit too easy. I would not mind being able to figure out without such visual cues where I should go next.

    STORY & PRESENTATION
    The graphics, music and acting are top notch as ever. I really did enjoy the story with all the twists and turns and love this kind of adventure story. I wonder if there will be a next game, but I really do hope so.

    I felt the set pieces were not quite as stunning as Uncharted 2. Perhaps it was just that Tibet was such an alien setting to me, that it made it very charming. I thought though that they could have used the desert theme a bit more. There was not much fighting in the desert, which i thought was a shame. I realize there isn't much "cover" there, but I think they could have managed something.

    I loved the chapters with the pirates and the cruise ship and also liked the bit with the plane, but thought it was much too short... i was excited when i saw it in the trailers, but it felt it was over very quickly.
    In general, I did feel the game was shorter than Uncharted 2 and was a bit let down by the ending (the last levels were not as interesting somehow).

    All in all, it's still a fantastic game. One that I plan on playing through again really soon. I am also looking forward to discovering the co-op mode and multiplayer more as well.

    I still highly recommend it to anyone who loves the series. However, I think everyone's expectations were set very high, which of course leads to a bit of disappointment.

    Sitll, the story, the music, the gameplay and the beautiful settings will just sweep you into this adventure all the same!

    If when I say "graphics" you think, high resolution, realistic lighting and shadows. You won't be as impressed as you should with this game; it runs at 30 FPS, it's 720p and the lighting is good, but we're not playing Crysis here... We're playing Uncharted 3, a game were dust and sand sticks to your character's hair, a game where your clothes will blow in the wind and the water looks real. I have never once let out a short burst of laughter in disbelief before, especially when playing a game. This game changed that. when I saw sand cascade of a sand dune when i got close to the edge, and when I bolted for an exit as a storm of water chased me around the small corridors of a sinking ship, I did let out a breath of disbelief in what I was playâ

    Naughty Dog can do no evil. The story is fantastic, the characters are believable and likeable. The gunplay and platforming are both spot on. The game always changes it up with new environments or new types of levels, such as: escaping spiders, fighting through a falling plane, running through a burning building, or a sinking ship.

The game always changes it up with new environments or new types of levels, such as: escaping spiders, fighting through a falling plane, running through a burning building, or a sinking ship. I never got bored or felt as if something was repetitive because I was always doing something new. The game even made me laugh, which VERY FEW games have been able to do. I really did feel as if I was playing an Indiana Jones movie or one of my favorite books. I have not played the multiplayer or co-op which I am sure will be fun in their own right, but lets face it, this isn't COD; everyone buys this game for the single-player. I must say, this single-player is one of the best out their. Some of the critics complained it was more of the same, but I say why mess with perfection. If they make ANOTHER great story with MORE exciting scenes, what is to complain about. Yes, the gameplay is similar but I would not want drastically different anything, because why would you stray from the best reviewed ps3 game of all time? I cannot think of one bad thing to complain about, since they added the alternate shooting by listening to the fans. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The single player campaign is shorter than Uncharted 2 by some way but contains some utterly jaw dropping environments and set pieces. I was able to clock it in just over 10 hours but loved every minute of it. This is graphically, one of the most astonishing looking games I've ever played and a fine testament to Naughty Dog's ability to wring the best out of the PS3. The voice acting again is superb as are the performances from Nolan North and the rest of the crew. My only gripe is that the finale lacks punch and the plot as a whole plays it rather safe with one moment towards the end where a main character gets killed only to turn up safe and well moments later. The multiplayer experience is a considerable improvement over UC2 and I've already sank dozens of hours into it. There are a wealth of new perks, upgrades and other goodies that compel you to keep playing. I can't wait for the forthcoming DLC map packs. The games as standard has 12 maps, some new and some old and they're all great and very varied. This is easily one of the greatest multiplayer experiences I've ever had. All in all this is an astonishing game and a worthy sequel and gets my firm vote for best game of 2011. Expand

    Nice graphics, good storyline (I think). But useless multiplayer (with access code), and I don't like the gameplay. I also thought it was plagiarized on tomb raider. But buy it with your eyes closed, it is worth it!

EVERYTHING is improved,aiming,fighting,climbing,jumping,and even running is improved.Now you could fight enemies simultaneously at the same time.There are ALOT of new combat moves both aerial and land-based.And you even have the OPTION to enter a room and kill everyone with stealth,or you could rain hell on them by using big guns;it's up to you. The music score is simply beautiful and astounding.You could go on playing the game just listening to the music without progressing and you won't feel bored.The music changes as the mood and intensity of the game is changing...The characters in this game are so vibrant and full of life as if they still have their own lives and places to go after the game finishes.Every character has his own story...The animations of U3 are out of this world and in a good way.Every thing you do the game reacts accordingly;if you walk down or up a stair Nathan grabs the handles along the way or if you move closely near a wall Nathan reaches out his hands to touch it...The movements of the characters are very fluid,smooth,and realistic that it makes you wonder if the characters are modeled after real people...The multiplayer has come back looking better than ever,every aspect of the multiplayer is improved in every way possible,and a whole lot of stuff has been included.If you ever managed before to get your hands on the beta then i rest you assure that the multiplayer is much much better than the beta.The most important upgrades in the multiplayer are the NEW competitive and co-operative modes,character,weapon,and emblem (logo) customization,machinimas,co-ops,and last but not least VIDEOS where you could record a match you recently had,edit it and share it with your friends,store it on your Playstation,or even upload it to the internet for the whole world to see...Overall,Uncharted 3 is a game that you'll never get bored of.And it is one of the best games this decade,and if you don't have it,then you're missing on a masterpiece,it is very much worth the $60...See you online!

    Far from perfect, IMO UC2 is better overall but it is still fun anad worth a buy. especially the underrated co-op which is a game in itself. Still has many issues and while the story and acting was great the pacing was really off in this game ruining the experience when a fade to black and page wipe leads you to a new country as if this were some 12 year old's video project for school.Far from perfect, IMO UC2 is better overall but it is still fun anad worth a buy. especially the underrated co-op which is a game in itself.

Graphics are amazing though and gameplay is fun but it has many issues in terms of repetitiveness due to low amount of check points. It's either way too easy or simply annoying due to having to replay the same part over and over again to not get shot by a certain person. Worth a buy though. Collapse

    The characterisations by the actors is second to none and even though this tall-tale takes you to fantastical places and events, the script is never once unbelievable. You never feel like an outsider. If anything, you'll feel right at home, ensconced in the constant drama of this loveable cast of returning reprobates and reprehensible villains. [Dec 2011, p60]
