    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.

    GREATEST GAME EVER MADE. i want to write another review about this game and just say that you owe it to yourself to check this out, im deepGREATEST GAME EVER MADE. i want to write another review about this game and just say that you owe it to yourself to check this out, im deep into multiplayer now and it actually has gotten better when i didn't think it could. drakes adventure is nothing short of an absolute blast, you can get lost very easily into the humor, the charm and the story. sadly there are trolls on here, they come to try to tarnish this amazing game, if one of you is reading this, stop torturing yourself, buy this game! its amazing.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. it is the only game which has blown my mind this year. it simply deserve a 10. Uncharted 3 had a great story that would really touch your soul, from with conflicting love interests, starting with a small walk through from a bar to the lost city !!! it's really hard to forgot . When talk about the graphics , in simple word " uncharted 3 is an example of next generation graphics" and from the very first day when i play uncharted Drakes fortune ,I knew that the graphics revolution can only done by naughty dog ....thank u Amy Hennig ,Justin Richmond,Richard Lemarchand,Greg Edmonson,Christophe Balestra,Evan Wells and the whole team of naughty dog. and mostly to "Sony Computer Entertainment ".

    OK I was in the first place going to give this game a 8-9 score but theres too many people giving it zero which it does NOT deserve.So yea imOK I was in the first place going to give this game a 8-9 score but theres too many people giving it zero which it does NOT deserve.So yea im giving it a 10 to help even it out, Apparently for some people the cut scenes and the occasionally frustrating gun fights can make the game not as fun but seriously? a zero? I dont think any game deserves a zero. Giving that is being just dramatic and overly hateful of a good game and making it look bad when in fact, its a great game by most standards. So aside from that this game is awesome. I'm honestly a little disappointed that it wasn't exciting from start to finish like Uncharted 2 was but its still a great game with top notch graphics, soundtrack, and very good voice acting. It has its funny moments and exciting thrilling scenes you'd picture in a film. Pick this up, You wont regret it Expand

    Just like the first game this is a below average cover shooter disguised as adventure game just cause it throws a few half assed puzzles here and there. It has got some cinematic appeal to it but not in the level of a Metal Gear or Mass Effect, and unless you can endure below average shooting as core gameplay for almost the entire playtime, you're probably not gonna want to finish this dull piece of crap and move on to something else. It is honestly an awful game.
