What is there to say about this game as well as the Uncharted series, well, it is arguably one of the greatest gaming series ever made to start. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune provided the ultimate stepping stone for this series to achieve greatness.

You play as Nathan Drake, who is a descendant of the famous English sea captain Sir Francis Drake. He is essentially a treasure hunter of anything his ancestor was involved in and along with his best pal Victor 'Sully' Sullivan and Elena Fisher are lead towards a mysterious island with untold secrets. The action is amazing (and is enhanced further in the trilogy), it is a typical 3rd person shooter with basic weapons and standard cover system. It is easy to get used to and and is quickly enjoyable. An added bonus are the tricky for some puzzles that will get you thinking and may even force you for help online.

But what makes this game along with its sequels stand out of the rest is the main character Nathan Drake. His is in my opinion the greatest protagonist in video game history. He is incredibly witty, coming out with hilarious one liners during the cutscenes. He is almost impossible to dislike as his intelligence for treasure hunting simply makes you go wow.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune ticks many boxes, great graphics, great gameplay, great story, great puzzles and an unsuspected twist.

One of Sony's best game releases

Well, Uncharted is one of the best games to hit the PS3. At first I thought it was too much like Indiana Jones with the adventure element and cheeky remarks. But it has a charm of its own and I would say it kicks Indiana Jones' behind with a great storyline and an equally matching gameplay to follow.

I've noticed its for all gamers, may they be casual or serious gamers...

Kudos to the Naughty Dog for the handwork!

This is where it all started, this was the start of Sony's biggest franchise in the PS3 days and it really shows why in this game.

Discover not only who Nathan Drake is, but why this game was so successful and had the ability to go on and become one of the biggest Sony hits ever!

This game is the definition of incredible, with graphics that people had never seen hitting the Playstation 3. Story that people had never even fathomed before this point, this is the best third person adventure you can experience.

The definition of a good game, is this one.
