Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (2007)

Nathan Drake is on the trail of ancient gold thanks to a ring he has inherited from Sir Francis Drake. As he follows the trail, gun-toting pirates are only the start of the foes that do not want him to reach the treasure first… or at all.

9/10

A lot of contemporary reviews would have you believe that Uncharted is currently the PlayStation 3’s best game. It’s not (Call of Duty 4 is), but this is a high quality action adventure with breathtaking presentation and superb control. However, this is a case of too many slightly-bullet-proof pirates slightly spoiling the broth, or, more specifically, the flow of the game’s action segments. That said, the difficulty is perfectly judged, the game is good throughout, is garnished with several wonderful little touches (watch Nathan’s sweater crease as he walks) and, at times, it does achieve greatness.

This game contains mild swear words, adult dialogue and extended extreme and graphic violence, unpleasant scenes, scary scenes.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
