Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is the third title in the action/adventure video game series. It was released in 2011 for the PlayStation 3, and re-released in 2015 for the PlayStation 4.
The story follows Nathan Drake, who makes a shady deal to sell Sir Francis Drake's ring to a man named Talbot. The whole thing is a setup for Nate and Sully to track down Talbot's employer, Marlowe. They find old notebooks in her library which tell tale of Francis Drake's secret voyage across the desert, which he had taken under direction of the Queen. Nate and Sully use the notebook to chart the same course and see what Drake may have discovered.
The gameplay is the same as the previous titles in the series. You play as Nate, and you use various guns and other weapons to take down different enemies, some of whom are easier than others. At times you traverse the environment by jumping and climbing, or -- as a new gameplay mechanic -- swimming. There are also some puzzles to solve here and there.
I really liked the new character Charlie Cutter; he's probably one of my favourites in the whole series. I also really liked that the gamer gets to play as a young Nathan, where we see how he met Sully for the first time. All of the desert environments are very beautiful and the cities are incredibly detailed.
My problem comes from the fact that the mechanics just seem a bit off. As far as the shooting goes, sometimes I would aim at someone's arm and it would do more damage than aiming at their head. Sometimes I knew for a fact that I missed completely, but I appeared to do damage anyway, or sometimes I would literally fore off six rockets at someone before they would die. This is not only bizarre, it's frustrating. Equally frustrating were the times when I would seem to get snagged on invisible walls when walking, or jump onto a ledge only to somehow miss -- these are things that just don't happen in the more polished games in the series.
Overall, I love the story and characters, and I love how the game looks. I just feel that this is the weakest in terms of the actual gameplay. I don't know what went wrong.
This game is so intense and gets you hooked to play for hours! It's also pretty great when you play online with others for things such as team hunts. I definitely think that playing this game is worthwhile.
I am the proud own of all the uncharted games for PS3 once you start your hooked! I love this game I even bought it for my ps vita ! It's the scenes and the hunt great game.
I love the Uncharted series for Playstation! The story of Nathan Drake is like a modern day Indian Jones. The game play is amazing plus the amount of work the Naughty Dog team does to develop the games is incredible.
The game play and cinematic really pull you into the game and the story for each game is captivating and takes you on a thrilling and exciting adventure.
One of my absolute favorite parts of Uncharted 2 and 3 are the mulitplayer modes. I love going online with my friends and playing against other teams. It's you and your team against other players around the world. You meet a lot of interesting people on there.
If you're into the whole 3rd person gaming this is definitely worth playing. This game has won many awards for game of the year and more.
Worth the play.
