Drake's Deception is the most recent Uncharted, and it's by far one of the best games I've ever played. Although it is a shooter, the violence is not too much for younger players: no heads are blown off, no limbs go flying. There is some swearing (damn, hell, son of a b**ch) but nothing to explicit.
The main characters are awesome leads, with Nolan North reprising his role as voicing Nathan Drake. Drake is, of course, out looking for treasure, but he's more interested in his own heritage of being Francis Drake's descendant. Players are taken from the streets of London to the deserts of the Middle East, and every step they take on the way is awesome.
The storyline is awesome, with a long enough campaign to keep players going on Uncharted 3 for a long time. On top of this, players can also play multiplayer, both competitive and co-op. People on the same console can play split-screen, and use game modes that involve holding off waves of enemies in a wide variety of maps. This mode alone could keep someone playing Drake's Deception for months after getting it. Another co-op mode includes mini-missions, where players can play as Drake or Sully, and in some modes can even create their own character, or choose their avatar to be any character from the entire saga (excluding Golden Abyss) both good or bad. Players can also choose the entertaining avatars of Skeleton Genghis Khan or Francis Drake.
In short, Drake's Deception is one of the best, coolest and enjoyable games I've ever played. The campaign is amazing, with the voice acting and main characters each awesome. Players will be able to fight their way out of shipyards and chase their enemies around the streets of cities, and on the way they might just pick up some facts about Francis Drake.
