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).
