    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.

    This game is why you have a PS3. If you don't buy this game and you have a PS3 I think you must have some serious issues. If you don't likeThis game is why you have a PS3. If you don't buy this game and you have a PS3 I think you must have some serious issues. If you don't like this game, then I don't think I could like you as a person. This game really is something quite special; it's polished and refined beautifully. I've never seen such a level of polish in a game before. The singleplayer experience is incredible with great pacing and a very satisfying length. People have told me they're put off by how the game is only about 10 hours long but surely quality is more important than quantity? You'll replay this game many times and trust me the money is worth for those 10 hours. The multiplayer is just icing on the cake, its great and very robust and surprisingly addicitive. Sure, its not the best but its certainly good. The co-op is great as well. But the reason you should buy this game is for the singleplayer experience. There's nothing wrong in this game which is why its a perfect 10/10. Expand

This game does a good job with providing a healthy mixture of parkour and shooting elements. But the best part of the game is the art direction. There are varied, stunning landscapes that really immerse the player. The camera angles are stunning and make it feel like a movie. Truly a great game. Expand

Eu acho q a qualidade gráfica é a mesmíssima. Perceba q o rosto de Drake tem bem mais detalhes e rugas, porém só é possível ver qdo ele fica com a cabeça parada. Sempre q ela se move, fica embaçado o rosto. Tb achei q a qualidade da água do mar nos capítulos envolvendo os barcos e o cruseiro, beirando ao ridículo. Vi num dos vídeos dos extras que o mar era em tempo real e movia todo o nível. A qualidade técnica foi maior q a do 2, porém a gráfica, achei, não.

    Mas percebam como o sistema de mira é péssimo. Inclusive pouco tempo depois do lançamento, a ND disponibilizou uma atualização que melhora a mira (pois os consumidores diziam ser impossível mirar e atirar), porém mesmo assim é uma tortura atirar, principalmente com a pistola.

    Fui obrigado diversas vezes a ir para o mano a mano por ser mais fácil. A I.A. dos oponentes, somada à péssima mira, também atrapalha; porque apesar do realismo em eles ficarem muito tempo escondidos por completo em cobertura, isso ficou cansativo de mais, pois U3 é jogo de ação, não de tática.

    E essa I.A. também acaba por nos induzir a ir para o corpo a corpo. No U2 os inimigos se esquivavam, mas não ficavam a vida toda encolhidos atrás de cobertura.

    A mira de U3 só fica decentezinha no modo multijogador, porque você pode comprar melhorias diversas para as armas, como precisão. U3, no que tange à jogabilidade fez a façanha de involuir.

    Normalmente sequências de jogos tendem a ficar estagnadas em relação aos lançamentos anteriores, mas U3 fez pior em relação à I.A. e sistema de mira, ele desandou, andou para trás.

    Por isso continuo dando nota 8,8, apesar de a fase do avião e as em que ele vagueia pelo deserto serem incríveis graficamente e em jogabilidade.

When Uncharted 2 came out I re-played it immediately on crushing and got a Platinum. And while the first is not as popular I still play it to this day. I just don't feel the same connection to 3. It was fun for a few hours but now that it's over it's over. It doesn't help that the final level is underwhelming and ending is curiously bland. An 8 is too low and a 9 is too high--8.6 Expand
