Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Review
Posted: 6 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
Uncharted 3 brings back many of the series beloved characters such as Victor Sulivan, Chloe Frazer, and Elena Fisher. However, the dynamics between some of the characters have changed since last seen in Uncharted 2. Notably, Nate and Elena, who seem to become estranged since their engagement at the end of Uncharted 2, this additional layer of the narrative brings the player into Nate's personal life, beyond that of a death-defying treasure-hunter, showing a more flawed and real character.
Like other games in the series, play is a mix of combat and puzzle-solving. Combat is required to pass enemies from the order, while puzzles are required to get closer to finding Ubar. When solving puzzles you'll need to frequently reference Drake's journal which is filled with notes and clippings that will provide valuable advice on how to solve each puzzle.
While many of the systems and mechanisms of previous Uncharted games are seen in Uncharted 3, the game expands on each of these systems providing more engaging puzzles, combat, and traversal providing an engaging experience. In addition to the enhanced systems, Uncharted 3 also provides you with a large dichotomy in locations from the deserts in Yemen, to a decrepit French Chateau making the story seem far grander than previous games.
Rated PEGI 16+ for violence. Violence consists of hand to hand fighting and use of guns. Although the violence is bloody and there are some injuries it is not particularly strong in that it lacks any gory elements.
Rated ESRB TEEN for blood, violence, and language. As players explore ancient ruins in international locales, they can use stealth moves (e.g., neck-snapping, chokeholds) and melee attacks to incapacitate armed thugs and mercenaries; some fistfights are highlighted by bone-cracking sounds and slow-motion effects. Players also use realistic pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, and grenades to kill nearby enemies. Injured characters emit small puffs of blood when shot, and some sequences depict individuals with bloodstained clothing. The words “sh*t,” “b*tch,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.
Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 14-18 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity.
A notable change between the two versions is that the PS3 version had mandatory motion controls. Sections that used motion controls were replaced with stick controls in the PS4 remaster.
