    It's more than just the best entry in an outstanding series though - it epitomises the very reason many of us play video games. And that's its greatest achievement.

    The visuals are breathtaking, the story is fascinating and the gameplay is never-ending. Uncharted 3 is like a fast-paced locomotive that cannot be stopped. The expectations were high, but Naughty Dog met them and even added an action-oriented frantic multiplayer. This third title clearly honours its parents, but as a child it does tricks with its pulsing vigour.

    Words almost can't describe a game that nears perfection. And that is exactly what Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception does.

    Uncharted is still an incredible cinematic experience, but its own issues remain the same: limited interactivity, often too linear. Despite this, it's still one of the best adventure titles of the year, one you shouldn't miss. Multiplayer is just an add-on, but a very well crafted one.

    It's an amazing game with an engrossing singleplayer campaign and a complex multiplayer mode that allows for months of fun. But don't expect a massive quality leap from Uncharted 2.

    Naughty Dog once again delivers a unique cinematic experience that has no equal. With superb graphics, unbelievable set-pieces, superb story telling and great characters, Uncharted 3 is a genre-defining game. Next time though, we'd like to see better shooting mechanics.

    Two years after Thieves, Uncharted's gameplay mechanics and conventions are no longer dated; they're borderline archaic.

But honestly, to top a game that was one of the best games I've personally ever played... it's a big accomplishment. The game has some of the most astounding cinematic scenes in gaming, an amazing story, an amazing score, great gameplay and a surprisingly very good multiplayer. You won't want the cut scenes to end, and you'll have a blast playing through the game itself. Expand

The chateau wasNaughty Dog admits that they began planning this game around the set pieces. It shows. The set pieces are amazing to be sure. The chateau was fun, the ship was amazing, and the horse riding portions gave me the best kind of Indiana Jones flashbacks. The problem comes with portions of the plot that are hackneyed to jerk at the player's emotions specifically in the last level. The story telling is amazing, but fake-outs are not entertaining or rewarding. Further, where are the puzzles? The action is there, but I miss the complex puzzles that required heavy thought and planning. Lastly, the multiplayer is a diversion at best. These are the problems. But they are gripes at the most. In truth, it's a cinematic experience and a must for the fans of the series. The characters are flushed out, its fun, beautifully rendered, and full of character. As a fan I just wish it had a bit more to make it complete. Expand

    This game is dog **** IDK about anyone else but for me its buggy as hell, half the time it barely works at all and the crap contextual actionsThis game is dog **** IDK about anyone else but for me its buggy as hell, half the time it barely works at all and the crap contextual actions can't decide if they worked this time or bugged out as I flip halfway over a guy with a shield become stuck in the air for a bit then fly off into space like I was hit by a grenade despite this being the way the game told you to beat them and is in fact the only practical way to kill them aside from grenades, movement is clunky showing a lack of effort in the game overall and camera angles keep changing randomly for no reason, and enemies are randomly immune to bullets and explosives causing me to have to play sections over and over till the enemy could take damage, to make this worse your dodge and cover button ARE THE SAME BUTTON meaning you will try to take cover only to roll out and get shot WTF and of course random times your walking along with a guy and it’s just gone, no cut scene or loading area just gone…..in short this game was **** for me never played this series before and certainly never will again.
