    Both titles were exceptional in the respective years of release, and in the Legacy of Thieves Collection, both Uncharted 4, and The Lost Legacy are the best they’ve ever been.
  2. Jan 26, 2022
    If you’ve never played Uncharted before, this is as five-out-of-five a game as you’ll ever see in review...Grab this for £42.99 and set aside February for nothing else.
  3. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a fantastic collection that greatly enhances two top-tier games. The lack of multiplayer is disappointing, but it's hardly a deal-breaker. And after seeing how great Uncharted looks and plays on PS5, fans will be clamoring for a proper Uncharted sequel built for the ground-up for the platform.
  4. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a masterpiece, with both games receiving impressive improvements. Better visuals, faster load times, and DualSense integration, two wonderful titles have been made even better.
  5. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection is authentic, exciting, and well worth exploring, neatly tying together the series past and potential future in the best version of both to date.
  6. Jan 26, 2022
    Despite those small things, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection blew me away on the PS5. The breathtaking landscapes and fluid gameplay heighted by the addition of improved feedback from the DualSense controller took a fantastic experience to another level.
  7. Jan 26, 2022
    Both Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy are still fantastic games that deserve a second playthrough on PlayStation 5. Naughty Dog’s first outing on the PlayStation 5 is an incredibly strong one, and only makes me even more excited for what it has coming next, and what they’ll be able to do with this technology.
  8. Jan 27, 2022
    The gaming gods of Naughty Dog have spoken in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and wow, what a ride on the PS5!
  9. May 11, 2022
    If you were dying to see Nathan Drake in action again, you’re going to get it. UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a blessing. Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy look stunning on the PS5, and their gameplay are just as good, reassuring that both games were ahead of their times and aged like fine wine.
  10. Jan 27, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves collection brings two of the PlayStation 4’s best games to current gen consoles in brilliant remasters that would fool even the pickiest of gamers into believing these games were native made for the PlayStation 5. Packed full of adventure, heart, incredible storytelling, fantastic visuals, and believable characters, the Legacy of Thieves collections shows why Naughty Dog is one of the undisputed champions of the medium.
  11. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a must-have for anyone that has yet to play these two games or simply wants to revisit them. Oh, if you have savegames from either of these titles on your PS4, Sony provides an easy way to migrate those onto your PS5, by the way. But whether you’re revisiting these games or just playing them for the first time, you’re in for a treat. Naughty Dog have proven themselves as one of the best studios in the business, and these two games do not disappoint. Add this release to the ever-growing list of superb PlayStation-exclusive titles that you can’t miss.
  12. Jan 26, 2022
    The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is every bit as good as the individual games were upon their original release. This remastered collection shows exactly why the Uncharted series was and is so highly regarded, even 6 and 5 years later, respectively.
  13. 95
    Whether you're experiencing these stunning games for the first time or are returning for another playthrough, emboldened by the technical facelift that the PlayStation 5 provides, Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection brings together two absolute banner PlayStation exclusives into a delectable and unmissable package that serves as a timely reminder that Nathan Drake and company have been long missed.
  14. 95
    Whilst the price is a little steep, I can't deny the fact that the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection provides the best way to play two of PlayStation's best games. Naughty Dog's finest shine on the PS5 hardware and if you haven't played these games, you're in for an absolute treat, and if you're returning to these games, you can expect to be blown away all over again, if not for the enhanced visuals alone.
  15. Jan 27, 2022
    Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer are back with their single-player adventures, polished and enhanced to suit the power of PS5. They're still fresh, enjoyable and now feature shorter loading times, three graphic modes and a little bit of DualSense magic.
  16. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is the combination of the best two installments of the Uncharted franchise. The powerful performance of PS5 pushes the game graphics to the next level, and the whole gaming process is nothing less than "amazing". However, almost none of the features of the game, including the adaptive trigger and the useful "shock" function, gives full play to the performance of the DualSense gamepad, and consequently the game controls cannot make the game more immersive, which is quite regrettable.
  17. Jan 26, 2022
    Legacy of Thieves Collection brings back two extraordinary adventure games, with 4K resolution and up to 120 FPS in performance + mode. It is a must for newcomers, but if you already played PS4 versions, this remaster feels too short. There is no extra content and visual upgrade is not enough to buy them again.
  18. Jan 26, 2022
    So if you’ve never played one, or perhaps both games, then I think this collection is a no-brainer for sure. And even if you have, the upgrade discount path makes this collection a worthy addition to your growing PS5 library, and it’s sure to be the game that you pop up in when you’re trying to show off modern console technology to your friends and family. It’s a solid remaster of two excellent games, both of which are well worth playing through again.

    A seriously impressive remaster of two blockbusters that rank among the finest of the PS4 era, and a must-play for both fans and newcomers. [Issue#11, p.86]
  20. Feb 21, 2022
    Legacy of Thieves is a minor, yet noticeable visual upgrade, that mostly ravishes itself in its unlocked 60 FPS and 120 FPS modes. These are the best ways to experience Drake's final journey, especially in 60 FPS, with its clarity, reflections and shadow resolution still being a notch above the previous version with the smoothest experience so far. It still isn’t enough for new fans to put out full price, as previous owners of only one of the two titles will profit the most, getting the two games for the price of one.
  21. Feb 14, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has everything I expect from a game inspired by exhilarating adventure movies in the vein of the Indiana Jones franchise. Naughty Dog, the grandmasters of enrapturing details, effortlessly prove how much you can squeeze out of this seemingly worn out formula. If there’s anything to complain about, it’s the small number of changes introduced in the remastered versions. On the other hand, do these still exceptional and visually stunning games need changes?
  22. Feb 13, 2022
    After about 5 years, Uncharted is still impressive, and with one of a kind gameplay and improved visuals and frame rate, it’s a must have package for those who never played Uncharted 4 or The Lost Legacy before. As for those who already beat both games, paying another 50 bucks for pretty much the same games doesn’t seem a good value for money.
    Jan 31, 2022
    With minimal improvements, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection makes the most of two wonderful games.
  24. Jan 30, 2022
    Uncharted 4 remains to this day one of the best (if not the best) cinematic action-adventure games of all time and The Lost Legacy -though not as great- is a decent adventure. Both games aged remarkably well and look as beautiful today as the day of their initial launch. On top of that we have some major upgrades on the resolution and the frame rate that make them a must-have collection especially for those you haven't played them before.
  25. Jan 27, 2022
    This collection is the best and, in my opinion, only way you should experience Uncharted 4 and Uncharted The Lost Legacy. The enhancements are more than solid, and the jump from 30 to 60 (and even 120) FPS finally give it the edge it so desperately deserved.
  26. Jan 26, 2022
    As is usually the case with remasters and ports of Sony games, Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection lives up to expectations. Uncharted 4 was already a fantastic game in the first place thanks to the combination of top-notch direction, solid gameplay and masterful storytelling, with characters that are both believable and engaging. This new version allows you to experience all this with the same comfort and the same level of immersion as the other PS5 games or almost.
  27. Jan 26, 2022
    Both games this remaster aims to upgrade haven’t really aged at all, at least gameplay-wise. They are still epic, still a bit silly, still beautiful and still charming thanks to their characters. Now everything is just a bit more stunning, sharper, smoother and overall more enjoyable owing to the amazing DualSense.
  28. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is worth its price-tag, offering a gorgeous games with high resolution and nice performance boost.
  29. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a must-have package for anyone yet to grapple with Nathan Drake's latest adventure and expansion starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. The 60 FPS mode on PS5 stands as the best way to enjoy these experiences, so much so that even those who have already completed them could be strongly tempted to get the upgrade.
  30. Jan 26, 2022
    If you’ve never played an Uncharted game before and want to see what all the fuss is about, Legacy Of Thieves Collection is a must-play. Whether you’re coming to it on PC or PS5, both games serve as a reminder that nobody does gripping, story-driven action-adventure quite like Naughty Dog. If you are a veteran of the series, these welcome upgrades add an extra shine to an already gleaming treasure.
  31. Jan 26, 2022
    The Legacy of Thieves Collection compiles the two finest games in the Uncharted series while making them look and feel better than ever before. Yet they already pushed boundaries that are yet to be usurped, meaning existing owners of this game need to shell out for a relatively minimal upgrade without too much to offer. I still think it’s more than worthwhile just to relive these adventures once again, but part of me wishes a little more effort was placed into bringing them to life for a new generation.
  32. Jan 26, 2022
    The Uncharted series have always been at the forefront of the action-adventure genre. The Legacy of Thieves Collection is undoubtedly the definitive way to play through the last two chapters of this long running series, with lightning fast load times, excellent visuals, boosted frame rates, and immersive utilization of the DualSense controller and 3D audio. Don't skip out on this narrative masterpiece!
  33. Jan 26, 2022
    While I’m disappointed by the relatively simple execution of this remaster, the content offered here is still outstanding. From overall presentation to the polished gameplay, this is still single-player gaming at its finest, now made shinier. It’s an easy flex for PS5, but that doesn’t make it any less of a must-play for those who missed out on the last-gen launch or hardcore fans who want to scrutinize every pore on Nate and friends’ higher-resolution faces.
  34. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection bundles together two of the PS4's greatest games. Both Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy remain brilliantly crafted thrill rides, and their blend of cinematic action is still best-in-class. Throw in improved performance on PS5, and you've got a remarkably high quality package that's incredibly easy to recommend. If it's been a few years since you played either of these titles, the upgrade is probably worth the £10 / $10 asking price. If you're brand new, you're in for a treat — but you might want to start with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
  35. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is the definitive edition of two games that remind me that Naughty Dog are experts at creating great adventures. Now I have no doubt whatsoever, the legacy of Nathan Drake is eternal.
  36. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and The Lost Legacy are unassailably great. In particular, Uncharted 4 is a pinnacle of both the art and technology of games, and the Lost Legacy isn't far behind. The Legacy of Thieves Collection is the hands-down, must-have version for any PS5 owner who has, inconceivably, never touched these classic games. For owners of the PS4 version, already playing it on PS5, "buy now" comes with a few very mild caveats. For one, the upgrades are primarily in support of higher resolutions or better framerates, and while the games look stunning in native 4K, you're not getting a ton more for your ten bones. Given the lack of extras, this should maybe have been a freebie for owners of the PS4 version. On the other hand, if this collection's reasonable price prompts you into playing these masterpieces again, that's absolutely a win for you.
  37. Jan 26, 2022
    If you played and enjoyed Uncharted 4: A Thief's End or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy years ago because you enjoy the feeling of climbing wild structures and unearthing treasure, the good news is that's all still here in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. If you played those two video games previously because the series is known for stunning locations and exotic locales, neither has ever looked better than in the new PS5 remasters. If you want something entirely new, well, this isn't that, but it also doesn't pretend to be. And sometimes that's more than enough.
  38. Jan 26, 2022
    Better graphics, great 3D sound, nice Dual Sense optimizations and noticeably improved loading times - the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is currently the technically best way to again enjoy "Uncharted 4" and "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy". It’s just a shame that the multiplayer complex wasn’t remastered too, that the developers did not add any new content extras and that the upgrade concept does not work out for everyone.
  39. Jan 26, 2022
    No doubt some will have expected more of a visual overhaul, but it's hard to find fault with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. Both Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and The Lost Legacy still look stunning, and thanks to better frame rates and other PS5-centric features they are more immersive and fun to play than ever before. If you own one or both of these games on PS4 and are considering playing them again, it's well worth upgrading. And if you've never played them? Well, you'd be mad to let the opportunity pass you by again if you own a PS5.
  40. Jan 26, 2022
    While God of War and The Last of Us 2 only got a patch that allowed them to work better on PlayStation 5, the last two Uncharted titles get a little more love with special remasters that bring many new graphical options and great support for other gimmicks of the new system. In the newly remastered collection Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy both look fantastic just like we remember them, and are definitely still a must-play for all, as well for the fans who just want to be reminded of these titles in the best possible way.
  41. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a precious remastered of two great adventures, still fun to play and made even more fascinating and immersive by the features and power of PlayStation 5. The collection ideated by Naught Dog is undoubtedly the best way to enjoy Unchharted 4: A Thief’s End and the spin-off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
  42. Jan 26, 2022
    The new Uncharted collection shows that the series still has a lot to offer. The new PS5 features are just the icing on the cake.
  43. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is of great value for those who didn't play the original games, but for those who did the enhanced PS5 conversion is still similar to the originals, which could be all you are asking for.
  44. Jan 26, 2022
    How much do you want to replay Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy? That's the question you've got to ask yourself right now. If your gaming docket is looking pretty rammed, then this is one you can probably pass on for the time being. However, if you just can't get enough of Nate, Sam, Chloe, Nadine and Sully, then this one just about warrants a purchase. It's the definitive way to experience these PS4 masterpieces, and has me dreaming about the possibilities of a true PS5 Uncharted title.
  45. Jan 28, 2022
    Uncharted: The Legacy of Thieves Collection proves that Naughty Dog doesn't just create solid gaming experiences with incredible cutscenes and deep, detailed environments. The study that also delivered The Last of Us: Part II shows us that it knows how to adapt its games to the new hardware available and that the results will always be outstanding.
  46. Feb 2, 2022
    Two essential games that you can relive with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves; or experience them for the first time if you missed them back in the day. Its graphical improvements focus mainly on refresh rate performance, providing an optimal experience. Any excuse is good to put on the explorer's suit and jump into impossible jumps or to solve puzzles in mysterious catacombs.
  47. Uncharted Legacy of Thieves is a nice package that makes good use of the features of Playstation 5, with the visual and technical improvements it offers in both games in the collection.
  48. Jan 31, 2022
    Uncharted nails the cinematic adventure so well, and it’s great to see the two campaigns looking as crisp as they do on the screen.
  49. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has several improvements, but probably isn't enough for those who already played it. Anyway, two games that are still on the top of third-person adventures.
  50. Jan 26, 2022
    This is just a decent remaster of two incredible games that lacks some ambition. The games, of course, are still as fantastic as they were when they were first released.
  51. Jan 26, 2022
    Sony is delivering just what was promised. No more no less. It will be up to each person to decide whether to support or not.
  52. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a no-frills, straight-to-PS5 port that checks all of the required boxes, and that's about it. A couple of performance modes support up to 120fps, there's a rudimentary DualSense implementation, and the great loading times make experiencing these games more enjoyable than ever, but it's hardly a phenomenal upgrade even at the lower price point — both for those upgrading from a PS4 copy and those buying into the franchise for the first time. While the Uncharted gameplay formula has become slightly predictable, both Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy are enjoyable because of the stories they tell and their highly polished production values.
  53. Jan 26, 2022
    A great opportunity for those who missed this series as well as for those who want to see it at its best, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection does not surprise or disappoint, but manages to thrill gamers just as it did 6 years ago.
  54. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection joins the Nathan Drake Collection as the best way to experience some of the greatest titles PlayStation has ever put out into the world. Naughty Dog truly are kings of their craft, having created many of the industry's greatest games, and with Uncharted established a franchise that captures the movie-like-magic of adventure cinema and brings it into the interactive space. Who knows what the future of the Uncharted franchise has in store, but for now getting your hands on this collection is a sure-fire way to experience a platform-defining experience that should hold up for years to come.
  55. Jan 26, 2022
    Even if you’ve played through Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy before, I’d recommend returning to them for this collection. Playing at a higher frame rate won’t completely transform these games, but it certainly makes them more enjoyable. After five years with nothing new in the world of Uncharted, now is a better time than ever to jump back in.
  56. Jan 26, 2022
    Fans wanting an excuse to re-play the two most recent Uncharted titles on a current-gen console finally have incentive to do so. The breathtaking scenery looks awesome on PS5 and I thoroughly enjoyed playing through these memorable adventures again.
  57. Aug 11, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection offers up two amazing games that have aged gracefully, helping them to shine better than ever before. Newcomers are in for a treat, though returning players have little reason to rush out and buy it again.
  58. May 17, 2022
    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and The Lost Legacy are two unmissable experiences for PlayStation players. They're huge, bombastic, and rich stories that go toe to toe with some of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters around – and with their upgraded graphics it's hard not to say this collection is worth a look. If you've yet to play either game, this is a must-buy. Ultimately, however, these are a fairly barebones repackaging. So if you've already experienced both games, the high price tag might not be such an easy sell.
  59. Jan 30, 2022
    Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy look better than ever. Playing them at 60 frames per second is a treat and the basic implementation of the DualSense haptics On the other hand, these details are perhaps insufficient to justify another ride through the world of Uncharted. That's not to mention the fact that this is a paid product and not a free upgrade. That said, it is undeniable that this is the best version of 2 great jewels of the Naughty Dog catalog.
  60. Jan 28, 2022
    On paper, Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection has some nice arguments to be tempted, but of remaster, there is really only the name, since the two titles have not really been reworked at the source. We are rather dealing with a plus-plus port to which we have added the performance of the PS5. Save your money for Horizon 2 Forbidden West, that's a better choice.
  61. Jan 27, 2022
    Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer's action-packed adventures are still an absolute blast.
  62. Jan 26, 2022
    Given that Uncharted 4 is already available on PlayStation 5 as part of a wee free collection of PlayStation classics for all PlayStation Plus subscribers, it’s hard to argue that this is an essential purchase for anyone who’s played these games before. If they passed you by at the time, though, this is the best way to experience two different spins on the same bombastic action game – adventures that remind us why characters such as Nathan Drake (and his spiritual predecessor Lara Croft) suit video games so well.
  63. If you’ve never tried the series before, the remastered collection is a great excuse to jump in.
  64. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves is by far the smoothest way to play these two Naughty Dog titles. However, the upgrades are fairly light overall.
  65. Jan 26, 2022
    It’s hard to say anything against not one but two Uncharted games in a single volume, specially if they have been visually and technically enhanced by the capabilities of Sony’s new console. This collection is mainly directed at those who never played the games, although veterans will still take pleasure in revisiting the protagonists on the PS5 before going to the movies and see Tom Holland but of course, the console has many colossus coming already in the beginning of the year and not all pockets are deep enough for every possibility.
  66. Jan 26, 2022
    There’s no doubting the quality on offer here, then, but if you already own the PS4 versions then you might struggle to justify the outlay for the upgrades on offer – particularly when the original iteration of A Thief’s End is also available to PS5 owners with an online subscription for free as part of the PlayStation Plus Collection. One gets the sense it’s the kind of buying decision consumers will need to get used to making over the course of the coming console generation.
  67. Jan 26, 2022
    There's no question then that you are getting a vastly superior way to play both of the PlayStation 4's Uncharted entries, afforded by the more powerful hardware of the new generation of consoles. The upgrades are in line with what many other games from other publishers are putting out for free for players, but the upgrade structure here does allow you to grab both games for a small fee even if you only own one. That softens the blow somewhat, but it's a factor to consider if you've already experienced both games, with Uncharted 4 faring worse with its extremely slow opening when played through again. These are still both exceptional games, made better by more powerful hardware, making it an easy recommendation if you've missed them over the years.
  68. Jan 26, 2022
    A PS5 performance boost keeps these Uncharted games looking as cutting-edge as ever, providing a good reason to revisit Nate and Chloe’s spectacular adventures, even though some of the series’ well-worn habits could do with a revamp themselves.
  69. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted 4 is one of the best action adventure games ever made but this remaster does so little to improve the experience it doesn’t feel like anything other than a cynical cash grab.
  70. Jan 26, 2022
    Both remain the excellent action/adventure games they were at the time, still offering spectacular moments and more touching sequences, in the service of fast-paced experiences that are still savored with great pleasure. That being said, the performance boost offered by the PS5 remains quite anecdotal, and, unless you are an ultimate aficionado of the franchise and the frames per second are a grail to reach to play your favorite license, the investment remains dispensable, all the more so since the 4K / 30 FPS sometimes struggles to hold up. That being said, the performance mode does its job very well and ensures 60 fps in optimal conditions thanks to an effective upscaling technique. So, if you want to discover for the first time the adventures of Chloé Frazer and Nathan Drake, or if you want to play this license in a more fluid way, this collection remains pleasant enough to browse for you to consider acquiring it.
  71. 80
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a solid remaster of two excellent games, even if it’s hard to deny the desire for the entire collection in one package.
  72. Jan 26, 2022
    Nathan, Chloe and their sidekicks are back on the PS5. Their single-player adventures are still entertaining and now they have shorter loading times, shiny textures, three visual modes and some of that DualSense/Tempest sorcery.
  73. Jan 26, 2022
    This is the best these two games have ever played, and for those who haven’t played the titles before or returning players who can take advantage of the $10 upgrade, it’s the best way to play them. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection might not be the shiniest of Sony’s remastered treasures, but it’s a treasure nonetheless.
  74. 80
    Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection does little to improve on the series' gameplay, but the visual facelift is more than enough of a reason to give these two genre greats another go.
  75. Jan 26, 2022
    A must have for anyone that missed the PS4 Uncharted games and a solid reason to dive back in for those that have already played them.
  76. Jan 26, 2022
    While it's not overly surprising to see PlayStation migrate two of its biggest last gen titles to the PS5 and slap a new entry fee on the front, it's also not an overly exciting end product. There's merit in playing these beloved and bombastic blockbuster hits in an eye-searing new fidelity but the weight of this package isn't quite worth the gold.
  77. Jan 26, 2022
    Two of the latest Uncharted games were brought to the PS5 (and later PC) with graphical improvements and DualSense support. Playing these games in 4K with HDR is a marvel. Sony has also finally figured out how to easily incorporate progress from the PS4 versions. However, the price structure is a mess and Sony really should sort that out, especially when the competition has made that so easy.
  78. 70
    Which brings me back to that question: what is the point of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, really? Sure, Lost Legacy is a wildly enjoyable adventure in classic Uncharted style, and even Uncharted 4, for all my complaints about it, is a game a lot of people clearly loved, and they'll love it again here. But when the only thing these "remasters" have over the PS4 originals that you can already play on PS5 are modest technical upgrades whose practical and aesthetic improvements are marginal at best, what purpose do they actually serve? When even someone who's never played either game before and is breaking in their brand new console and can get an identical experience for half the price by just buying the existing PS4 bundle, what is this Legacy of Thieves Collection other than a half-step in a pointless technical arms race and a chance to cynically sell some unnecessary version upgrades? We would all be served better if Sony focused on bringing us some of the incredible games that aren't readily available on the console already.
  79. Jan 26, 2022
    The bundled games are undeniably great, their enhancements solid -- but nonetheless, these are old titles pulled off the shelf and given a fresh coat of varnish, and at an additional cost to those who've already purchased them at that.

  1. Jan 26, 2022
    Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection is a somewhat basic remaster with few improvements beyond 60 frames per second and 3D sound, but it is an opportunity to vindicate one of the greatest games of the last generation.
  2. Jan 26, 2022
    Given that these are single-player experiences first, it makes sense that there wouldn't be a focus on bringing in multiplayer.
  3. Jan 26, 2022
    I can't help but feel that Naughty Dog could have unlocked the frame-rate on the existing PS4 Pro code and delivered a locked 1440p60 experience - in the way that the studio's PS5 patch for The Last of Us Part 2 worked - and much of the audience would have been perfectly content with that. However, the $10 upgrade does give you multiple modes, enhanced visuals and far better loading. And as a collector of physical media, I'm happy that we now have a complete version of both of these games, fully patched up and enhanced - it's basically an archive version of Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, which I greatly appreciate. It's not unlike buying a deluxe 4K UHD Blu-Ray movie of a film you had on normal BD. I really enjoyed returning to these games and look forward to seeing how these upgrades scale when the remastered collection hits PC some time in the future.

    Both newcomers and longtime fans will find a lot to appreciate in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, although they won’t find the original games’ serviceable multiplayer component (an omission I don’t mind one bit). This is the definitive way — at least until the PC release, which will presumably support 4K at 60 fps — to play a pair of beloved games that are two of the best at what they do. The package’s upgrades might seem perfunctory on paper, but as ever, the play’s the thing. [Polygon Recommends]

    Long after Nathan Drake hung up his holster for the last time a half decade ago, Uncharted’s legacy still remains. This collection crams two genre-defining prestige hits together - the kind of linear AAA action games we rarely see today. Let’s hope for more treasure-hunting adventures to come.

    The game looks absolutely stellar on PS5, and the 3D Audio really makes all the difference in realism- far more than I expected. It exceededThe game looks absolutely stellar on PS5, and the 3D Audio really makes all the difference in realism- far more than I expected. It exceeded my expectations. If you’ve never played, $49 is well worth it. I don’t completely agree with charging $10 for existing owners of both games, but at least there is an upgrade path. The storytelling and cinematic style are top notch. I know there’s a movie coming out, and honestly it’s a terribly idea simply because the game is better than any movie could possibly be. That’s the issue- it’s just too good. Naughty Dog crushed it with this one. Full Review »

    Not only is this game too expensive, it is a literal scam. The greedy developers are charging $50 for the exact same game that you could buyNot only is this game too expensive, it is a literal scam. The greedy developers are charging $50 for the exact same game that you could buy on PS4 for $20 (even cheaper for a used copy), and it is $30 in total after paying for the upgrade. This game is so worthless, I've seen it countless of times in a 4 for $10 sale on Gamestop. To make matters worse, the standalone versions of Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy were delisted from the PS Store, in a pathetic attempt of scamming players to pay $50.

    If you already own Uncharted 4 or Lost Legacy, it costs $10 to upgrade. This game offers no new content or massive improvements to justify the $10 upgrade. The upgrades are just FPS and resolution boosts that most developers would give away for free. This outrageous greed makes Ubisoft look like saints in comparison. Ubisoft gives away their upgrades for free, while Naughty Dog charges $10 for upgrades of older games. Forget new content, the greedy developers are charging $10 to get less content. They removed the multiplayer and co-op, basically removing half of the game. The developers were too cheap and lazy to keep the multiplayer. Not even EA would be that cheap and lazy to remove multiplayer from their PS5 upgrades. The developers are so lazy, they couldn't even add ray-tracing. The physics are still trash in this game. When I shoot an enemy off a cliff, they still fall off like statues. I was hoping to get physics that look like the E3 demo of Uncharted 4, but the developers were too greedy and lazy for that. Even PS3 games like GTA 5 have better physics than this game. Imagine a PS3 open world game having better physics than a PS5 linear game. That is embarrassing.

    There is no multiplayer. So once you beat the story, there is not a reason to play this game again. Charging $50 for a game with no replay value is a cash grab. And the greedy developers had the audacity to cut out half of the game and still charge $50. This outrageous greed makes Activision look like saints in comparison. When Activision released Modern Warfare 2 remastered with no multiplayer, they were only asking for $20. Naughty Dog wants $50 for half of the game. Pathetic. I don't recommend you buy this garbage at all, even for the $10 upgrade that should be free. Do not support these greedy practices. Just wait for it to be free on PS Plus. "Legacy of Thieves" and "Naughty Dog", these developers really live up to their names.

    no offense to original game, uncharted 4 is a masterpiece, but just like with Ghost of Tsushima for PS5, this is a 10$ next-gen tax( in caseno offense to original game, uncharted 4 is a masterpiece, but just like with Ghost of Tsushima for PS5, this is a 10$ next-gen tax( in case if you already have uncharted 4 or lost legacy on your accont or on disk or even both games cool yeah?). In case if you have ps plus version, there is no 10$ upgrade for you, you have to pay full price for this patch, because this collection literally just a patch, with unlocked frame rate and dualsense features. Just a reminder that many developers give you a free ps5 upgrade, just look at doom eternal or metro exodus. Sony NEED TO STOP scamming their players with next-gen taxes. Full Review »
