Not Bad, But Has Room To Improve!

This game is not a bad game but it does have mistakes! The controls are a bit messy and in the later chapters there are some very disturbing and zombie-like creatures which try to rip you and other humans apart! This does kind of spoil the game but this game must be thanked as without it, there would be no other Uncharted games which have fixed these issues. The violence is stronger in this game then in the other Uncharted's. There is more blood, there is a trap which impales an enemy which you have the ability to walk around and zoom into! The game is pretty scary towards as in the beginning there are rotting bodies in a submarine which are zoomed into, there are those zombie creatures towards the end where your stuck in a Nazi base and there's a never ending wave of them! Language is pretty strong as there are villains who shout out sentences that have F word in them, the word is not fully heard but very little left to the imagination! Sex is not an issue in the game as Uncharted is mainly combat aimed! Get this game and if you have a couple of issues like mine then get Uncharted 2 which is 10 times better!

Mild violence and language

The violence and language are not very bad and, unlike many video games, the main character is a good role model for kids because, despite shooting people, he is fighting for a very good cause and is clearly a nice person.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18 ):
Kids say (77 ):

Despite some shimmery edges around parts of the environment, such as trees, the graphics are great, especially the fluid character animation and huge outdoor levels. Plus, every few minutes you will be treated to a short cinematic interlude to help push the story along. There are more than 100 minutes of these high-quality non-interactive sequences and they help add to the suspension of disbelief.

The high production values will attract you to Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but its tense gameplay will keep you glued to the TV. Armchair adventurers might feel a bit of deja vu with the many borrowed Tomb Raider -like elements, but you won't be disappointed with this polished and immersive single-player journey.
