    Ridiculous Value. If You Have a PS4, Buy This.

    I have never played any Uncharted games before purchasing this collection. I have a PS4 and thought, "why not get some of the best games for the PS3?" I have also played, and thoroughly enjoyed The Last of Us, which is by the same developer (Naught Dog) as Uncharted 1-3. For the price this might be one of the best gaming values since The Orange Box. Three fantastic games, each one taking about 8-10 hours to complete (could be much more if you are a trophy hunter) and every second of the time is enjoyable, particularly Uncharted 2. Fantastic. It is also very nice to have them all on one disc so when one is finished just hop onto the next one. Here is a review of each individually. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - This game was released in 2007, and can at times feel a bit, but I am getting ahead of myself. You play as Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake searching for the fabled city of gold, El Dorado. There are other important characters, all of which get their own development (except the bad guys) and overall the story feels pretty solid, even if sometimes you are not exactly sure why these people are shooting at you, they just are. The mechanics leave something to be desired at items, but overall are pretty good. Drake is very physically adept and spends much of his time leaping and climbing from ledge to ledge and you occasionally leap to a ledge and the game thinks "Jump to that ledge or drop to your death? I am pretty sure you meant drop to your death" And it does. There are various difficulty levels from “Easy” to “Crushing” so it does allow you to choose your own frustration, depending on how experienced you are with shooters. The graphics look better than 2007 graphics due to the game being remastered by BluePoint Games and really, they’re pretty good, nothing special, but they never get in the way. Overall though, the game play is fun, the shooting mechanism is pretty good, and the story is excellent. Also, you don't NEED to play this one first, but I do highly recommend it for story pieces in the second game. 8.5/10. Uncharted: Among Thieves - Among Thieves was released in 2009, but feels almost brand new when you play it. This has been called one of the greatest video games of all time, and I can see why. The gameplay in this one is relatively similar to the first with Drake climbing and Jumping all over the place, and shooting the baddies with the copious amounts of ammo lying around. However, almost every gripe about mechanics in the first Uncharted is fixed for this one. The game is incredible. The physical things Drake does feels more natural and intuitive, falling to your death on accident is less common and even the shooting mechanics are improved. The story is very solid now with pretty much every aspect being explained clearly, but the real bonus to this game is the variety of landscapes, scenery, characters and mechanics required throughout the story. Each plot arc feels like it could be its own game. I would love to say I have something bad about this game, but it is pretty much perfect. If I absolutely had to pick an issue, I would say that sometimes, the game can’t tell if you meant “jump to the ledge” or “reach for the ledge” which can make the movement a little spotty, but believe me, that is rare and just me searching for a problem. 9.9/10 Uncharted: Drake’s Deception – Drakes Deception was released in 2011, but the graphics look great and the game feels very modern. The stellar reviews for this game are legitimate. I will have to agree with most and say it is not quite as good as Uncharted 2, but it is only because 2 was so extraordinary. The story again is good, going into the backstory of Nate and Sully’s relationship and introducing a new main character. It all works together and keeps you engrossed throughout your play through. The puzzles in this one seem to be more complex and fun than the other two as well, challenging, but still relatively quick to get through. I enjoyed them most in this game. This game did feel a little more glitchy than the other two however, when it came to just general exploring and gun battles. Enemies would be dead, but still standing (sounds creepier now that I write it) so you keep shooting them waiting for them to die, wasting time and bullets. There was also an instance where a treasure or collectible was sitting on a table and the game would not let me pick it up. I don’t know what it was, but there are achievements for collectibles and if I was attempting them on this play through, that would have been extremely frustrating. All of that aside, the game is still great, and is worth a play if you have a PS4. 9.2/10 This collection is an incredible value. The gameplay is great, the graphics are beautiful and they are worth playing for the story alone. If you have a PS$ there is no reason not to own this collection. 9.5/10 NOTE: This collection is only the single-player parts of the game; no multiplayer is included.

    Great campaigns, but no multiplayer.

    This was my first time playing through the Uncharted campaigns. As a package, it's a fantastic deal! Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (the first in the series) is the shortest campaign (7 - 8 hours on normal) and by far the least polished. However, for a game that's about 8 years old at this point (2007), it holds up well. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was excellent, with more variety in locations, bigger set pieces, and a far more interesting story to tell. The combat and enemy variety also felt significantly improved. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception was absolutely my favorite of the three campaigns, full stop. A great example of story telling, character development and gameplay all coming together seamlessly. It's also easily the best looking of the three campaigns, but that should come as no surprise. Since this is my first time playing these games, I can't speak to improvements over their PS3 counterparts. The games have several difficulty modes, including two new modes for each campaign: An extra difficult mode called Brutal difficulty which is unlocked after beating the games on Crushing Difficulty (the highest available in the original games), and Explorer Mode which is super easy and meant for those just interested in the story. They've also added Speed Run Mode, which helps keep track of how quickly you're beating each section of the game and compare against your friends. Each game also has it's own set of collectables to hunt down, which allows for the unlocking of trophies and in-game modifiers like skins and access to weapons. Having said all that, the game suffers from it's lack of any multiplayer. It's a confusing omission given that both Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 had highly rated, if maybe a bit underplayed, multiplayer modes. Perhaps they wished to avoid the issues that Halo: The Master Chief Collection encountered at it's launch, or maybe it was too complicated given the drastic differences in architecture between the PS3 and PS4. Regardless of why the decision was made, the game ends up being worse off for it. Sony/Naughty Dog try to offset this by offering access to the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Multiplayer Beta coming December 2015, but you need to still own The Nathan Drake Collection in order to access it. I decided that access to a Beta wasn't worth holding off on trading the game in for less money down the road. If you don't normally sell or trade your games in after completing them, then that will be less of a factor. Bottom Line: If you've never played the Uncharted campaigns before, I would absolutely recommend this collection. However, there's not much of a reason to keep it around once you've played through them unless you want to try harder difficulties, find missing collectables, or trophy hunt.

    As soon as this collection was announced, I knew I had to pick it up. Nathan Drake and the Uncharted games were the things that got me back into gaming, having left it behind after the Nintendo Gamecube. The quality of the graphics, voice acting, gameplay, and story were something that I had never seen in a video game before. I played the original Uncharted, Drake's Fortune, back in 2007 shortly after it launched. From then on I was an Uncharted fan for life. Uncharted 2 became my most anticipated game after it was announced. The same goes for Uncharted 3. So with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End releasing in March 2016, how does this collection hold up? First off, Bluepoint Games did a phenomenal job remastering them. I have the Platinum trophy for all 3 original games on the PS3, and I can tell you these games have never looked better. If you're new to the series or if you want to relive the games at a quality that couldn't be achieved last gen, it's a great jumping off point. Graphics and presentation are great and clean thanks to improved textures and running at 1080p / 60 frames per second. Gameplay improvements have also been made in the form of improved aiming mechanics as well as more sensitivity options. Additionally, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune did away with the hard-to-aim motion controls for throwing grenades, opting instead for a simple grenade button like the games that followed. Playing these games again is an absolute joy and I'm having fun going for all the trophies again. New additions like a Speed Run mode and the new unlockable "Brutal" difficulty bring something new for the die-hards who want an extra challenge. As many others, I was disappointed at the lack of multiplayer considering The Last Of Us Remastered still had its multiplayer and Uncharted 2's MP was my favorite in the series, but the collection does include a voucher for the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta which should be launching soon. All in all, a great compilation of games for the Uncharted fan or the interested newcomer. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune pales a bit in comparison to Among Thieves and Drake's Deception, but this just goes to show how many improvements Naughty Dog added between the first game and the second game. "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. This, I did". Here's to the next big adventure.

    Wow, what a great collection of 3 great games!! I didn’t have a PS3 when these games released so I never had the chance to play them. When I got my PS4 this is the one game I hoped would get a remaster. You get all 3 games in this collection on 1 game disc. If you never have played any of the games in the collection you are in for a treat. This is now one of my favorite Action/Adventure games. Naught Dog, the developers of this game, are some of the best developers in the gaming industry. The Uncharted Collection has some great characters that you’ll play and love. And the story is some of the best story telling in gaming. You’ll finish one game and immediately continue on to the next game. I loved Uncharted 1 Drake’s Fortune, then I continued on to the next in the series and was blown away how much even better the story and characters get. Graphics in this game have been remastered and are amazing you’ll want to stop every few minutes and try the new camera sharing function. The game looks and plays great! I will post a spoiler free image below so you can see a picture I took by pausing the game and taking a pic. Overall ALL 3 games are filled with plenty of Action Storytelling that will lead you on an exciting adventure. You get 3 games in this collection for the price of a single game. I highly recommend this for a purchase especially if your new to the Uncharted Games.

    I know Uncharted has a lot of hype, but if the storyline / plot / characters interest you and you like action/puzzle games like (the new) Tomb Raiders or Prince of Persias, then you will enjoy this game. This is a combo pack of the first three Uncharted games and they play well on the PS4. It's witty dialog sometimes, not too complex plots, and has a decent amount of bonus items to search for (plus multiple levels of difficulty) if you're interested in replay-ability. I anticipate replaying each game at least once (possibly more), but I am a fan of the 'archaeology adventure' genre (both in games and film). Each game in the Uncharted series does go on a different adventure and you get to explore different mythologies, legends, and *cough* criminal elements. If you need a game with action, adventure, some storytelling cut-scenes, and aren't just looking for massive multiplayer competitions, I think this series does a really enjoyable play-through game. (It doesn't offer giant open areas to wander nor is it an open world. You have a path that is obvious, and while there is explorability for treasure seekers, etc, it's not that type of game.) If you aren't exploring and looking of treasure or achievement points, you could play it relatively quickly, so it's fun AND doesn't require a huge commitment of time. But it is three games, so the fun keeps going! I really enjoyed it and recommend it to everyone - but since we all have our own preferences, I'll put a firm "If you are looking at this game because you think it looks good, YOU WILL LOVE IT."

    This game is awsome, great graphics and gameplay. Unfortunately my recent experience at best buy has me thinking about never going back. On black Thursday I went in to return an item to buy some other stuff. I presented the return to the guy at the front, which put a sticker on it. After a while waiting I find out that they don't have customer service open during this Black Thursday/Friday event which the guy at the front forgot to mention. I went to leave Best Buy and showed my bag to the guy checking receipts and such at the front entrance, I had my receipt but the guy looks at the sticker and says it has the wrong date on it and takes away my merchandise and didn't want to give it back to me accusing me of stealing apparently. I tried to to get my merchandise and told him they put the sticker on it and he said that they werent even doing that since customer service was closed then he hailed some police officers over who looked at me the same way, like if I was a criminal or something. I finally got them to look at the stickers in the sticker gun, they had the same date as mine, the guy who put it on wasn't even there anymore. THE rude guy gave me my bag back, not even apologizing and him along with the 2 officers walked out behind me like I was the problem. I have been a loyal best buy customer/elite member buy I think it's time to switch to only ordering from Amazon. This was at the Kendall location around 5:50pm.

    I bought this collection pretty cheap in order to catch up for Uncharted 4. I'm on the 3rd game, which gameplay-wise is nearly identical to the first 2. I've struggled with the gameplay a little due to the clunky controls and climbing mechanics, but I've managed to power through. The fighting sections, particularly some of the boss fights in the second game, can be very frustrating and last way too long. I don't need to fight off 50 enemies off every time I complete a puzzle in a game that's supposed to be about exploring, adventure, and puzzle-solving. Graphically, they all look pretty good considering they are mid-gen PS3 games. The stories have been good even though they are fairly predictable. They are also fairly short, and only really lengthened by frustratingly replaying a few sections several times over due to accidentally jumping off a cliff or trying to figure out a boss fight that is secretly about punching and dodging rather than shooting your opponent. I'm interested in seeing how the 4th game changes things though. Overall, not bad if you want to catch up for the last game.

    Excellent older games that hold up well

    I just recently got a PS4 Pro after not having a PlayStation since I made the switch to the Xbox 360 years ago and have been a Xbox owner since then. After a string of excellent games released for the PS4 I decided to pick one up and catch up on some of the excellent exclusives not available on the Xbox. I finished Uncharted 1 & 2 in this collections and I am about 1/3 of the way through 3. These are all excellent games that look really good for being older games. The graphics aren't quite as good as what is coming out now but for how old they are they hold up much better than I expected. The controls with the balancing, climbing, jumping are pretty forgiving so it doesn't become annoying or frustrating. Aiming can be a little annoying since there is no dot on the screen until you go into aim mode so often you have to make large adjustments to your aiming on the fly. Overall, they work very well. All the games are very similar in how it plays but you do see extra touches and updates in each subsequent game. The story for these games are all very cinematic and I feel they can be best described as Indiana Jones meets Tomb Raider. So these are all excellent games that are worth the low cost you can get in this single package. Once I finish up 3 I look forward to getting to Uncharted 4 before the deluge of new games come out this fall.

    Uncharted is amongst those who belong on the Mount Everest of Gaming and this collection brings you quite possibly the best trilogy video games has to offer on any console and in any form. As for the Nathan Drake collection a multitude of people have already played it but this will give many people a reason to replay something I consider a masterpiece done by the great artists at naughty dog... You get Fantastic action, comprehensive puzzle-solving, and a fantastic and heart pounding story... All things that you come to expect from an Uncharted title. I would recommend this to any parent with a child who is in their early teens... although the gun fighting is a large part of the action it is rarely celebrated and not overtly grotesque. As for your language there are no f words and anything else that you would not hear in a PG-13 movie... there is almost no graphic content. As a person who values video games for not only their entertainment purposes but also for their ability make you feel like you are part of something special I would recommend the Uncharted the Nathan Drake collection to anyone who can appreciate something that is as good as anything else in entertainment on any platform and the people of naughty dog deserves all the credit in the world and will have my gratitude for the remainder of my life for treating me to such an experience... getting to be Nathan Drake.

    Unbeatable Value for a Great Series

    The Nathan Drake series of games has been a hit for good reason. Great graphics, great gameplay, and a story line that for better or worse guides you from start to finish. Difficulty can be moved up and down and you never find yourself so stuck that the game becomes more frustrating than enjoyable to play. I had the first two games for my PS3, but moving to a PS4 pretty much ended my Drake playing. This collection brings you the 3 current games in the series (the 4th edition is scheduled to drop in 2016) to the PS4, with some remastering done to take advantage of the better PS4 hardware. The first two games are certainly more difficult than the third, and in fact, the third feels like it's running out of steam towards the end, with a fairly easy final battle (in Normal mode) that doesn't hold a candle to the run and shoot that is the ending of the 2nd game. I'm a much bigger fan of third person shooting games than I am first person, which probably puts me in the minority. I find I can control the player much better from that perspective. At some point Drake may move to a first person shooter, but in its current format, I think it's perfectly executed. Drake remains one of my favorite franchises on the Playstation platform. Hand to hand combat, shooting, fantastic graphics, reasonably witty dialogue...I am eagerly awaiting the 4th game.

    Product Quality: Product was well packaged. It was neither broken nor damaged. Even though it was pre-owned, disc was in very good condition (look new to me). No technical issues were identified during the installation on my PS4 (by the time you purchase it, it will require an update file to be installed). Story: The story (campaign) on each game is good and long, so you won’t finish it fast… You don’t have to play the games in order since each has its own story, so if you want to jump to game #3 directly, feel free to do so!! However, I do recommend playing them in order, for the full story’s sake in case you later decide to purchase Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End… which I definitely recommend… Game (Graphics and Sound): Graphics and sound are good. You will see a difference in the graphics between game #1 and game #2 since technology had changed at the time and the developer’s studio really worked for better graphics on game #2 (after the success of game #1). Graphics and sound did get better on game #3. For sound, any home theater system will provide good sound quality as well as a good gaming headset. I don’t remember if this game had multiplayer mode, however, if it did, I haven’t play it. I have played it only on Uncharted 4. I do recommend this game collection!!!!!

    Gorgeous Trilogy, But Cheap Difficulty

    When I heard countless amounts of good reviews for the trilogy, and it was on sale, I had to buy it to see if it's just as good as everyone else said it was. When I boot up the game and played Uncharted 1, I was marveled by the gorgeous graphics, the conversations between the characters, and great gameplay. However, I was very annoyed by the incredibly cheap AI. Every time I try to shoot the enemies, there are like 10-20 of them against one and they keep gaining up on me and the gun controls are very flawed too. Situations like these leads me to constant deaths, and I set the game to Easy. I'm not the only one who suffered through this A.I., some people also complained that other Uncharted games like Uncharted 2 has some incredibly cheap A.I. also. If you have been a huge Naughty Dog fan since the 1990s and likes a good story, you may find something in this trilogy. If you do not like cheap A.I., I would not recommend getting it. If you are not sure about the trilogy and want to give it a shot, get it for a really cheap price, because that's what I did.

    3 Amazing Games

    It's understandable why Naughty Dog and Sony would want to re-release these games to next-gen. These games were highly praised last gen and it's all well deserved. Naughty Dog was known for Crash and Jak and Daxter on previous consoles but Naughty Dog really defined themselves with the Uncharted series along with The Last Of Us in my opinion. But to get to the point, if you have a chance to play these games, PLAY THEM! These are amazing games! The stories for these games are beyond good and the graphics are great. The bump in graphics for the PS4 collection are noticeable, but definitely not on the same level as a next-gen. Naughty Dog (BluePoint who did the remaster) and Sony didn't re-release these games for the graphics, they released this collection for the new gamers to the Playstation platform who maybe had an XBOX 360 last generation. The first game, Drake's Fortune, is the weakest of the bunch, but still really good. The second one, Among Thieves is a perfect 10 for me along with the 3rd one, Drake's Deception. If you plan on playing the new Uncharted game coming out next year, A Thief's End, I would suggest picking these up and playing these first. Or if you're interested in the Uncharted series, pick these up, these are amazing games!

    Fine Cinematics, Not so much for Gameplay

    The Uncharted games are graphically attractive, and tell relatively satisfying pulpy adventure stories. The puzzles are interesting, and the climbing mechanics are pretty great. The problem lies in the gunplay. The games feed you enemies for drawn-out wave-based firefights. The shooting mechanics are subpar, and for games that ask you to shoot hundreds of enemies, it gets boring fast. The AI is mediocre at best, and most enemies are little more than bullet sponges that don't react to being shot unless it's a fatal blow. The games get better from 1 through 3, but only the most recent's mechanics should be considered even adequate by modern standards. The earlier games have not aged as well. Overall, the collection tells fun, dumb, pulp adventure stories, but with a blank slate lead character and the weight of poor gunplay mechanics dragging them down.

    I wanted to give this 3.5 stars but Best Buy's review system does not allow for this. I ended up giving it 4 stars because of the price. At $20 it is a must own for almost anyone with a PS4. The game is good yet has a few issues that keep if from being great. All 3 games in this collection have great graphics and a (usually) gripping story. The games are all fast paced which suits the story perfect. My biggest problem with the all 3 games is the repetitiveness and the lack of depth in the games core mechanics. You will find yourself in the exact same shootout type situation time and time again. This would not be so bad if the game had more interesting options and/or weapon choices. Also by Uncharted 3 many of the situations are exact copies of parts from U1 or U2 in a different setting. In the end I found myself mostly just playing the games for the story and not for the gameplay itself. The games do enough interesting things and have cool, unique environments along with great stories that I think the collection is easily worth $20. I would just recommend not playing all 3 games back to back as you will likely burn out on them.

    The Uncharted series has come a long way and I originally missed out on the first and third entries when I had my PS3. I have since upgraded to a PS4 and can now go back and play those two titles. I'm not really going to review each game, there are websites for providing in-depth game reviews. The Uncharted games have always looked top notch on the PS3 and these are no different. They've been slightly tweaked so that they output at a higher resolution, have a higher framerate, and take advantage of the PS4's more advanced hardware. It's isn't a big jump, Naughty Dog could have done a better job but I imagine they are knee deep in Uncharted 4, but it's still nice especially if you have a larger TV/display/projector. This title is constantly on sale making its purchase rather easy, I think I picked mine up from Best Buy for $25. That's not bad for three AAA games in one release. The campaigns all take a while to beat so there's a lot of game play here for a rather low price. I recommend this to anyone who hasn't played the Uncharted games, missed out on a couple, or they want to refresh before Uncharted 4 comes out.

    The Uncharted series is an expertly executed love letter to the pulp adventure serials that inspired Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider. Three fantastic games, near perfect even in their original release, now remastered and smoother. All three games, particularly the latter two hold up extremely well even by today's standards. They're still visual marvels, with some of the finest animation, voice acting, and visuals in the industry. This collection does not include the multiplayer from the latter two games, but includes all the single player tweaks, including a plethora of skins and such that the original release of Uncharted 3 was sorely missing. There's also a speed run mode that includes a timer, stat tracking and comparisons, and a new difficulty mode: "Brutal". Brutal is the only blemish I can think of on an otherwise solid package. The new difficulty is incredibly unfair, poorly balanced, and not worth the frustration. I envy those who are able to pick up this collection and experience these games for the first time, but even as a fan from the initial release, I'm still enjoying these games very much. This is a perfect way to prepare for Uncharted 4.

    Bluepoint Games put a good amount of work into these remasters. The Uncharted franchise is Sony's flagship games series, and what with Uncharted 4 coming out next March, it makes a ton of sense financially to release a trilogy set of these beloved titles. I don't think anyone is going to mistake these for native PS4 games, but the work Bluepoint has put into upping the resolution, frame rate, texture quality, lighting engine, and various other graphical effects is quite astounding at times. Considering their age, all of these games look positively incredible. The first game especially has been revamped in so many ways it completely betrays its roots as a first year PS3 title. All three Uncharted games packaged together for $60? If you haven't played these before, you're essentially getting three incredible games in the best iterations we'll ever get. It's a steal. Those, like myself, who have played these games before? This collection isn't essential, but these are all fantastic games that I greatly enjoyed playing through again regardless of tweaked game play and improved visual. They're just all-around watershed single-player experiences.

    Just like the games of old but a little nicer.

    First off as far as I can tell the collection does not contain the multiplayer component for the second and third game. Which is fine with me because I never really played them the first time around. What you get here is the single player campaigns and that is all I need. The games do benefit from the visual upgrade and bump to 60 fps. They play just like they did on the PS3 while being a little smoother in the aiming department. Head shots are an ease to pull off now. It also provides trophy support and seems to be a separate collection from the originals. While the list is the same they seem to count as separate trophies (in case you already have them from play throughs of the orginals) which makes sense. If you are new to the franchise and want to see what all the hub bub was about or want to refresh your memory before going onto play Uncharted 4 I would definitely recommend picking this up. The one thing I would suggest though is price matching it. You can Google it and hit the shopping tab to find cheaper prices. I would try my best to get it around 30 bucks if you can. Especially if you owned the originals on the PS3.
