GAME REVIEW: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
For PlayStation 3. RRP: $119.95. Rating: R16
If you’re getting a PlayStation 3 for Christmas, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, would be a great game to kick off your PS3 collection.
Game studio Naughty Dog — the company behind huge hits such as Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter — has produced another winner in this highly anticipated fast-paced action game.
The story goes like this: Modern-day fortune-hunter Nathan Drake embarks on a search for the fabled treasure of El Dorado after a clue is found in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake.
That search leads to a forgotten Pacific Ocean island, where Nathan ends up stranded.
His day goes from bad to worse: Outnumbered by the mercenaries hunting him, Nathan and his companions have to fight to survive as they unravel the island’s terrible secrets.
Right, that’s the plot. Now for the game.
It’s a blast — the graphics are sharp, the gameplay is awesome and the sound amazing. You’ll feel like you really are there in the middle of all the action as you battle your way around the island.
This is one of those games that will keep you entertained for a long time, with its engaging story and challenging situations.
