epic trilogy adventure game

can I first of by saying that this is exactly like the other games but there is a little bit more blood in these 3 games I got this for my son on 2020 Christmas. Along with uncharted 4, and uncharted the lost legacy. yes there is swearing such as the s word, a word and b words there is some smoking but not really any drinking and no sex which is on the bright side and gets you thinking about history and the puzzles are fun and a bit difficult violence 7/10 language 7/10 drugs 3/10 sex none

Not as bad as you think

I have no idea why this is a 15+ rated game, there are guns but it’s not the main part of the game, there’s no language, no sexual stuff. If your kid has seen Indiana Jones then they won’t be effected if they play this.

Is It Any Good?

As this game was launched only months before the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, it would be easy to write it off as a promotional tool designed only to build hype for the next game in the series. But to do so would be to ignore that the three games in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection were among the very best ever to come to PlayStation 3. These were filled with fun exploration, smart puzzles, fast-paced action, and Hollywood-style storytelling made all the more memorable by a talented cast of voice actors who breathed life and personality into great characters. These games are about as close as the medium of games has ever come to giving audiences interactive Indiana Jones movies.

Plus, it's clear that no small amount of work went into this remastered collection. These three games can't quite compare to the most visually sophisticated games designed specifically for PlayStation 4, but the characters and the worlds they inhabit are nonetheless loaded with fresh detail and an impressive crispness absent in the original games. The only real downside is a lack of additional features, such as actor and writer interviews, retrospective mini-documentaries, or an analysis of developer Naughty Dog's growth as a studio. That's a missed opportunity. Still, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection will be tons of fun for any fan of epic adventure, new or returning.
