    This is unfortunately pretty much the same formula as the original Uncharted, so it feels dated. Same leaping across cliffs, fighting nameless mercs with disposable weapons. While the story is entertaining enough, the gameplay wasn't as sophisticated as Naughty Dog's more recent efforts like the Last of Us.

    The visuals in the game are stunning, and the story is great! The only problem is there is so much dialogue that it's almost like a cinematic game with a few fighting sections here and there. If you are looking for a action packed game, I don't think you'll find what you are looking for here. If you enjoy climbing simulators with great graphics and a good story, than you'll love this game!

    Uncharted 4 is one of the best games available. The developer, Naughty Dog has cemented a reputation for being able to handle character driven story, and cinematic gameplay. At its core, the Uncharted series is about treasure hunting, similar to Indiana Jones or the Tomb Raider series. Along the way, the characters encounter bad guys, and fight there way through... eventually finding puzzles or other ancient artifacts to progress the tale. If you are fan of gaming, as well as fun action movies... Uncharted 4 is the best at blending the two!

    I've always been a big fan of the Uncharted series ever since Uncharted 1. Uncharted is that rare video game series that feels like a movie with the masterful storytelling, seamless transition between levels, and amazing visuals. Uncharted 4 definitely continues this trend, while also challenging you with puzzles, platforming, combat. More often than not, you'll find that there's more than one way to play, especially in some of the combat/stealth sections where you can stick to being sneaky or go loud for an intense gun fight swinging from grappling posts. Even casual action-adventure fans should enjoy this game.

    Has Met My Expectations

    I'm about 70% of the way done so far and it is an excellent game. So far I can't say I've enjoyed it AS MUCH as #2 and #3, but those were epic games and extremely hard to live up to. It starts a little slow IMO as the first several chapters are a lot of exposition and exploring (I think there were maybe 2-3 gun fights total within the first 6 chapters). But things picked up fast in the following 10 chapters. I expected nothing less than outstanding, and so far it has met my expectations.

    I'm not sure why this has garnered so many game of the year nominations/awards. Yes, the story is somewhat interesting, but it's nothing that you haven't seen done better in film/tv. The improved stealth mechanisms reflect the influence of The Last of Us, but do not feel as smooth or fun when put into practice. The rock climbing portions of the game are still largely linear, with the player simply pointing in a direction and pressing a button, with no real sense of discovery. And combat wasn't particularly interesting because you're left fighting the same handful of enemy types throughout the entire game. At least the first two Uncharted games incorporated different enemy factions (the supernatural kind), but here you're just going to fight the same group of generic mercenaries over and over again. I had high expectations for this game, but felt let down by the franchise. Rise of the Tomb Raider was far better in its execution of essentially the same game play mechanics.

    Uncharted 4 is a climbing simulator

    I have played all of the Uncharted games up until this point. However this game misses the mark. It is a graphically amazing game with minimal bugs, but the game play falls short. Graphics: What more to say other than the game looks great. It is a shame SP is 30 FPS, but Multiplayer is 60 FPS and very addictive. At the time of my purchase ND also implemented some critical updates to allow for customization on how the user sees the game (Motion Blur, Camera controls, etc) Game Play: This is lacking. The previous games were always a mix of platforming / action. But this game places more emphasis on Platforming and less emphasis on action. The problem here is the platforming is guided and easy, hence it is boring. Fire Fights are far and few between and most of the time they encourage stealth which in my opinion slows things down further. The saving grace here is the multiplayer included the recent DLC which adds a fun survivor mode (waves of NPCs players fight against). The MP is better than TLOU as it learns from this game, and implements a faster pace. Sound: Not too much to really say here. The game sounds ok, there isn't too much nuance. Replayability: SP replay value is minimal. With Speed running components implemented it adds a bit of value. But the real replay value is in MP PVP and Survival mode. Here you can sink hours of gameplay in which really makes the game a lot of fun (MP community is still alive and well at the time of this review). One MAJOR gripe I have with the game is the microtransactions. In order to earn the items they have listed in their stores you would have to play hundreds of thousands of hours to get them all. The skins and costumes are overpriced and while ND doesn't completely mess over the player, they do make a decent attempt to do so. Overall: A fun game worth the buy at 20 bucks. MP is fun and in my opinion where the REAL game play is at. Most will say the SP is where the fun is, but I will go against the grain and say SP isn'thing more than a slow paced story with a few fire fights thrown in.
