Though the lack of new content makes this unnecessary for those who've already played or own the earlier versions, people who missed these epic action/adventure games need to get this two-fer. With Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Sony brings the final two games in the Uncharted series -- 2016's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and 2017's Uncharted: The Lost Legacy -- to the PlayStation 5. Epic and cinematic third-person action games in the vein of the Tomb Raider series, both have you running, gunning, and puzzle solving as you try to find ancient artifacts before the bad guys catch you and grab the treasure for themselves. In other words, they're like great Indiana Jones movies, but with you calling the shots.
That said, this collection is only worth getting if you haven't played these games before, as they don't add anything new of substance. While they do look a little better, it's only a little, but aside from that, they still play the same. Well, unless you want to play their multiplayer modes, because those aren't included. But if you didn't play the originals, this double shot is essential. The action is top notch, the situational puzzles are clever, and the story is epic and engaging. They also add some fun new mechanics to this already versatile series, such a rope you can use to swing like Tarzan, and more open areas that give you more ways to explore and approach your targets. All of which makes Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection unnecessary as a double dip, but doubly necessary for series newcomers...well, after they play the first three games, of course.
