Uncharted 3 Review

Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception Review

My take on this game!(only for the PS3)
Our old pal Drake is once again after treasure; this time in search of a ancient city hidden in the Rub'al Khali Dessert. Puzzles also return from previous games with few changes. While Drake is wandering around ancient cities, he stumbles upon seemingly impassable barriers, but the solutions are hinted at in his handy journal. You may need to complete a mural by casting a shadow or light up certain sections of an enormous globe, and these aren't particularly difficult, but they are still a great diversion from the thrilling action sequences. And that's one of the most impressive aspects of Drake's Deception. The pace smoothly moves between action and puzzles, with entertaining cut-scenes thrown in the mix. You never spend so long on one activity that you grow tired of performing the same tricks repeatedly. The chapters bleed into one another. And once you wrap up the campaign, you'll want to go through one more time. Ramp up the difficulty, look out for hidden treasures you missed the first time, and soak in the sights once more!

Portrayal of characters--their lively back-and-forth discussions and side jokes--that give you a reason to care about the tale. Drake, Sully, and the supporting cast have spot on detailed animations that makes them almost look real, and their playful dialogue further cements this image. Tempers flare, threats are made, and you can feel the tension during heated moments. But these lifelong friends always make up, and it's their believable relationships that make it so easy to become invested in their struggles.
The AI are sometimes weak, and almost look identical. Of course, you don't have to go toe-to-toe with them if you'd rather not in the heat of battle. The beauty of Uncharted combat is that you can dispatch foes in a variety of ways, and all of them feel incredibly empowering. The key is the expertly designed levels. Drake's Deception is a cover-based, third-person shooter; thus, chest-high walls populate many of your encounters. But those familiar structures aren't used as a crutch here.Vertical walls gives you the option to climb around like a gun-toting monkey if you prefer, getting the drop on bad guys. If a man with a rocket launcher is forcing you to hunker behind a piece of debris, fear not; you can smoothly leap from cover, shimmy up a nearby wall, and sprint across a rooftop. Grab a sniper rifle on the way if you want to handle him from afar or a shotgun if you'd like to pop him right in the head. Toss grenades at the group of enemies hiding by that wall, man the turret once you finish off its previous operator, or sprint past everyone until you make it to the door that marks your safety. Versatile level design lets you choose how to go about killing your pesky foes in Drake's Deception, and rock-solid controls ensure every action you want to perform can be pulled off without any hesitation. 

Multiplayer also returns in Uncharted 3 with many upgrades from Uncharted 2 such as the addition of boosters and medal kickbacks which will give you a special ability once you collect so many medals. You have to give a little time to get used to the shooting style used in multiplayer.Once you get the hang of it,the online play will be fun, exciting, and sometimes crazy. Uncharted 3 gives you a variety of maps to choose from and each one is unique.There are many modes to choose from which includes free for all, three team deathmatch, plunder, and my favorite team deathmatch. Co op also returns giving you a change to play alongside a best friend. The co op adventure adds a story that makes it more engaging and fun.Co op survival in my opinion could have been better, but it is always fun to shoot down waves of soldiers as they come after you and your buddie.

A masterpiece may not be flawless, but it is so exceptional that it is hard to imagine a game being better. From start to finish, single player to multiplayer, this game sings. The characters, the graphics, the sound,and the story – they’re all top notch. If you’re willing to skip Uncharted 3, be prepared to miss one of gaming’s finest moments!

My point (0-10) Its 9.9!!!!!(I never give a game a 10 because there was never a 100% perfect game)
