  • Summary: A 400-year-old clue in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets a modern-day fortune hunter on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The search turns deadly when Nathan Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island. Using maps and ancient artifacts, uncover clues and unravel mysteries to find a forgotten island and a treasure that was thought to have never existed. Explore exotic locations. Traverse through living jungles and spectacular 400-year-old ruins. Drake's companions and allies play an important role in the adventure through cooperative mechanics, gun play and exploration. Experience fast-paced gunplay: use a variety of environmental elements for cover, shoot enemies off of moving vehicles in high speed chases and more. Use an array of hand-to-hand fighting moves to put your enemy off balance. Anything from wild haymaker punches to running drop-kicks. Naughty Dog's advanced animation techniques allow Nathan to switch seamlessly between movements and achieve a whole new level of believability in gameplay. Nathan can reload his weapon while dodging bullets and find cover behind a wall, all in one smooth natural motion. [SCEA] Expand

  1. This is not only one of the best games of the year, it is the best game on the PS3 thus far as well.
  2. It's easily one of the best single-player games on PlayStation 3, or any platform, this year.
  3. This game is as much an adventure for your eyes as it is for your reflexes.
  4. It’s an ambitious game, but, importantly, not an overly ambitious one. All the important elements – gameplay, graphics, story, audio – have come together really, really well, making it well worth at least one play through if you can get your hands on a PlayStation 3.
  5. While there are very few PS3-only games that have come out this year, Uncharted can go right to the top of that small pile.
  6. They took a big risk in doing something other than a cartoony platform and in many respects Uncharted is a success, but slightly sloppy gunplay and some absolutely infuriating parts of the game hold it back from being a true killer app. On sheer graphical merits alone the game is a must-buy, but as a complete game, we'll have to wait to see how the sequel turns out to know for sure if this is gaming's equivalent of an Indiana Jones flick.
  7. Problem is, when it comes to movie-style storytelling, Uncharted is more "Sahara" than "Raiders Of The Lost Ark."

    I think that Drakes Fortune is an excellent game, and one that has a lot to offer most gamers. There is plenty of problem solving, adventure and "bad guys" to shoot at to make most gamers happy. Overall, I would say this is a "must have" for most gamers' collections! Expand

    i a solid game on almost all fronts . the voice acting xuperb as well as the diolouge . the storty is very entertaining it feels kinda like a indiana jones movie. the gunplay is alot of fun . climbing at times can seem abit tedous and some times your charicter just flys off to his death for no real reason . there is a nice selection of guns the cover mechanic works well. replay value is where the game falls abit.. atleast for me . i beat it 2x which is great but the game is only 8 hours or so long so $60 for just 8 hours of fun can seem abit pricey to some and may just warrent a rental to some . i did wait and got this for 24.99 and felt that was perfect price . right now you can get this game even cheaper then that . this game is deffinitly worth playing and it sequel is even better in every possable way and is worth $60.
