So I just finished up uncharted 3 and I have to say, I hate this game. Granted I'm not really a fan of the Uncharted series to begin with, I've played all their games and its the same cookie cutter story and play style.
I'll start off with some of the things that I did like. The Graphics and set pieces are obviously amazing, along with the voice acting, its some of the best in the industry. That is it for the good.
The story is beyond cliche, this whole game literally could be the same as the previous game and nobody would notice, along with the gameplay which I think personally is repetitive and boring. There is something I noticed while playing, there are the same sequences in Uncharted 2 and 3. Train/Car scene in both games, running across crumbling bridges, Sort of a spoiler alert here but no treasure is won at the end. I really didn't enjoy this game because its platforming, shooting, and maybe a puzzle. Rinse and repeat. This entire game is SO Linear it gives me a headache. At least a game like assassins Creed allows you to climb anywhere and do whatever missions you want at your own pace. You know how uncharted 3 ends, there are no alternate endings (that I'm aware of...) no real reason to replay the game, you've seen it already and if you've played Uncharted 2 you've played it already as well.
I don't know how people get off on the gameplay. This game has some of the worst sounds for shooting by far. Everytime you pick up ammo it sounds like someone biting a apple (all 3 games), the guns are unimpressive and always feel under powered. There were times I would rather have Drake realistically die because he is always fighting a
ing army along with battle hardened Mercenaries/soldiers/terrorists. Is Nathan, the "treasure hunter" really a
ing tank on feet? Don't even get me started on the difficulty. Back when I played uncharted 2, I played the game on hard and that was a big mistake, that game took forever because of all my deaths. Now I'm not a bad video game player at all, I'm pretty seasoned and have plenty of platinum trophies but I totally put UC3 on normal and still got killed, frequently. This games single player is only 7-9 hours depending on how many times you die.
The music, well some people could call it a masterpiece, I call it uninspired. This the same prince of Persia style music you've heard. I really didn't find anything special about it, you're not going to see me listening to the Soundtrack like I would with something like Dark Souls. I think its something a little more than a matter of taste as its mainly violins and saxophones? idk what the hell I'm talking about here. LOL
Unless your a fan of the multiplayer which they did a ok job on, this is something that can be skipped, maybe a rental if you wanted but I didn't enjoy it at all. It felt like work, and this isn't much of a review but more of a grammar-less rant.
