I like this game because its like watching a movie. The characters were deep, the storyline was solid and the ps3 controls were tight. Naughty Dog made an excellent game!
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is the first title in a series of action/adventure video games. It was released in 2007 for the PlayStation 3 and was re-released in 2015 for the PlayStation 4.
The story follows Nathan Drake, an explorer in search of Sir Francis Drake's treasure. Accompanied by his best friend, Victor "Sully" Sullivan, and a nosy reporter, Elena Fisher, they seek out the land of El Dorado, all the while trying to evade an evil group of rival treasure hunters.
This game has you play as Nathan Drake, with the camera focused just behind him at all times. This is a third-person shooter, so you'll be utilizing several varieties of weapons to take down your enemies at both close- and long-range. Climbing and exploring also play a key part, as you'll be traversing different environments -- some of which are quite dangerous. Some puzzles are strewn throughout as well.
The graphics and gameplay were revolutionary for its time, and with story cinematics that rivalled the type of storytelling found in films, this was the start of the "blockbuster" video game genre. The characters are very three-dimensional, with Nathan Drake in particular being a very likeable action hero with quippy one-liners.
The reason why I didn't rate this higher is because, in comparison to other games in the series, this one hasn't aged as well. The story isn't as interesting as its sequels, and the mechanics now feel a bit sloppy upon replaying it. Every series has a starting point, though, and this is still a very good place to start.
Best new game for PS! Better get caught up for the newest one coming out soon!
