Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Review
Posted: 7 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
Play is a mix of combat and puzzles, connected with climbing, exploring jungle and urban environments. During combat, you fight groups of enemies using a variety of weapons. For the puzzles, you use the notes of Sir Francis Drake to help solve environmental conundrums. Some of these puzzles require you to choose the correct path, while others require you to activate objects in a certain order and more.
While there are many games that offer a similar experience, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, a PlayStation 3 launch game, offers deeper characterisation and more convincing acting. In this first game, and on into the series, players discover a fractured hero in Drake -- wanting to do the right thing but at the same time obsessed with getting the treasure (rather than the girl).
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Remastered
Does not offer in-game purchases, 'loot boxes' or 'battle/season passes'. Uncharted Drake's Fortune was originally released on the PS3. It became available on the PS4 via Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection bundled together with the second and third game.
Rated PEGI 16+ for violence, bad language. Violence consists of hand to hand fighting and the 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, Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Tobacco, Violence.
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.
