    Naughty Dog redefines the standard with Uncharted

    Can't praise the game enough for its pleasing graphics. It's audio and sound effects are best experienced through a 5.1 / 7.1 surround sound system (configurable in audio settings) along with dynamic range and speaker placement specifications for time delay and center channel fine tuning for dialogue or effects and dialog output. One thing that really bothered me for the first 17 chapters of this game was the horrible motion blur, always present even when panning camera angles slowly. I thought my Samsung PN64F8500 plasma had grown old and tired and could no longer keep up. Nothing I tweaked on my TV worked so I had to grudgingly accept this motion blur to an otherwise visually impressive game. Well, into my 17th chapter, I was going thru the settings menu and under "Video", I found a setting for "MOTION BLUR" set to "10", the MAX setting! Once I dropped this setting down to "3", the horrible motion blur which had plagued the game during camera pans was gone! My only gripe with the game gone, I can now give this beautifully rendered, directed and voiced game the max rating it deserves.

    I played the first three Uncharted games on PS3 and loved them all so I had high expectations for this game - and hey were exceeded! This game has everything that was great about the first three games plus some improvements that make it the best uncharted yet. The graphics are amazing, the environments fun to explore, and the story is exciting and enthralling. It was great fun for me seeing how some of the returning characters had grown in the 15 year story gap between Uncharted 3 and 4, but I believe that even people who have never played an uncharted game before can get wrapped up in this game and enjoy it just as much as someone who has been with Uncharted since the beginning. The only downside was that i was so addicted to this game that i finished it in about one week, but I already am planning on playing it again on a higher difficulty and with a goal of finding more of the hidden treasures that are sprinkled throughout the game. I was also very impressed with the online multiplayer, so I am looking forward to playing that more now that I have finished the campaign story.

    Simply a Masterpiece. Anyone wanting to rate it as a one star clearly has mental health issues, nothing a straight jacket locked down in the asylum won't fix these types of lunatics. ' I guess it's bound to happen when you give 2 year old degenerates access to the Internet to showcase their blatant stupidity. These people are not gamers, they don't even play their own games on their own platform preference. It's pathetic really. So far, it is the best looking game ever created that has been released yet. Improved graphics, improved game play. It's an Uncharted game, what did you expect. The scenery is beautiful, there are no glitches or performance issues at all. The characters are engaging, talking to each other while you are playing. This sets up a new record for graphical fidelity, they have invested more time creating the perfect environment and both are 5 stars material. Online is solid, rare are the times you would see frame rate go down and when it does it is not significant. A must own for any PS4 owners and a reason to get a PlayStation 4.

    My goodness. What is there to say. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is an artistic feat. The physics of this game is at a level never before seen; from the new grappling hook tactic to the adrenaline rush sliding mechanic... heart-stopping to say the least. The set design is incredible. The visual depictions of the various cities, lands, & waters is, to me, unmatched by any other game. The story is amazing. A truly visceral experience, especially if you have been with the Uncharted franchise from the beginning. And what elevates it all is the outstanding cast that has brought this entire narrative to life. Uncharted 4, as all the games in this collection, is about action, adventure... but most of all, it is about family. And it was heartwarming to see this series have a happy ending. It's been one heck of an emotional rollercoaster ride with Nathan, Elana, & Sully ( and now Sam and Cassie ). It is sad, but as they say: All good things come to an end. I think I can speak on behalf of all Uncharted fans when I say to the cast, Naughty Dog, everyone involved... Thank you.

    The story is AMAZING as always. The graphics are beautiful and will keep you wanting to explore and look for every piece of hidden treasure. They have some cool bonus features you can unlock that will change your outfit on story mode, or turn your entire screen into 8bit display. I did not use any of these features though because I wanted my clothes to change based on where I was at in the story, and the graphics are so good that I could not make myself turn on the "fun factor". I did test some of them out after I beat the story mode, but I personally still prefer the default display. The online is actually pretty fun. The games are pretty quick and it seems like there is always action so you won't be wondering around a map trying to find someone for a long time. There is a lot to unlock online so there is a lot to keep you interested. Outfits, hats, glasses, characters, gun mods, sidekicks, and the list goes on. Overall a great game that will give you plenty to do and keep you entertained no matter what you are doing.

    Great Uncharted game but Uncharted 2 the best IMO

    Uncharted is one of my favorite franchises of all times. Uncharted 4 is one of the best Sony exclusives this yr and it has a great story, much improved gameplay and multiplayer is probably one of the best in series. The problem i have with the game is its not as fun as Uncharted 2 or 3 and not enough bombastic set pieces. It has good action and even one of the best action scenes ever in chapter 11 but not enough great action scenes that can rival chapter 11. I think i was disappointed that Naughty Dog showed their best stuff before the game came out and didn't have enough to rival those prior gameplay reveals. I like the surprises in the story and the final boss fight was unique but i found myself wanting more. Maybe the single player DLC will ramp up some great action set pieces. The rope and all the other new additions to the game are great but i just thought ND let me down somewhat plus some of the pacing in the game was too slow. 8.5/10 but on best buy i couldn't give the game a 4 star = 8/10.

    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.

    What a waste. Awesomely gorgeous game -- you'll want to pause while playing to just enjoy some of the scenery. Story, though? Awful. I play these games for a number of a reasons, but one of the key reasons is the twist you always get at the end. I burned through this game in hours, excited to see what Naughty Dog had in store for a twist for the final installment. Well, the twist was...there was no twist. Many people praised this change; but, I find it in poor taste and feel like Naughty Dog owes me another game. It's still worth playing for the beautifully rendered environments.

    If you are looking this game, then you are probably already are a fan of the franchise. If not, well you have to play the other 3 games first so you know the story! This game looks great, plays great, and is a lot of fun. Uncharted 3 looked great, but this game definitely takes advantage of the PS4 graphics power and sometimes it feels like you are taking part of a movie. The detail of the artwork is georgous, and the sets are stunning. There is also some off-road jeep driving which is pretty neat, and the addition of a grappling hook for some high flying action. There is always something to explore! I like to take my time and explore everything, so I finished the game in just over 20hrs. It is definitely a little longer than the others in the series. They've also added a multuplayer game. Typical team vs team shooter using the characters (good and bad) from the game. It's also fun and easy to waste a few hours on. Great game, I'm sad I've finished it.

    I purchased this when I picked up the PS4 Pro. I picked this title on a recommendation from a friend for both the gameplay and beauty. I must say that it doesn't disappoint. The game is absolutely stunning in several areas, especially with the HDR patch. There is a good amount of variety in level design and color pallet throughout. The controls are excellent, particularly with climbing. the gameplay is a lot of fun, as is the story. The dialog is a real high point, both from the writing and the voice adding. Really the only part I didn't care as much for were the stealth areas. It felt like it was mostly there to slow down the pace and extend the playtime. There was one are where I just sat in some tall grass and waited for all the enemies to walk by. They never noticed the disappearance of their buddies so they just kept walking into my killing field. Outside of the stealth areas, the game is great fun and I highly recommend it.

    Great game. Much better than Uncharted 3, not quite as good as 2 but very close. Gorgeous as all getup though. My biggest problem witht his game was the immensely annoying Nadine. Considering this isn't a movie and is a game, they'd have done well to really bulk her up more rather than having her be so powerful of a force at 100lbs; it's just frustrating...also because her character shows up all the time and nobody just shoots her in the face. I kept yelling that at the screen. I think the situations they put her in were poorly planned, because I could count 3 times I would have just offed her, but I feel like they didn't because it would be bad PR to shoot a girl...even though the entire game Drake is straight murdering Shoreline guys in bulk. Anyways, if you haven't played it yet, do. It's great. I love the pirate story, the lush locales just like Uncharted 1 and not quite as over the top as Uncharted 3.

    The best Uncharted yet

    Having played the previous Uncharted games I had nothing but high hopes for this game, and this game did not let me down at all. The best part of this game, and the entire franchise, is the immersion. You get pulled into this game as if you are watching a movie, but you are playing in it. It is hard to put down and you want to keep playing it until you are done. I am simply writing my review on the singleplayer experience, I have not played multiplayer and I don't expect to play it, so I cannot comment on the micro transactions this game has for the multiplayer. In closing, I will say that without a doubt this is the best game available on the ps4 to date, not everyone will agree with that statement but this game makes you feel such a rush of emotions, high and low, and it takes you on an amazing journey, definitely a game every ps4 owner should own and enjoy.

    This is the game that defines the current generation of gaming. After many delays and rewrites, Uncharted 4 is here and it delivers in visuals and story. I was a little worried that this game wouldn't live up to the hype considering that there were so many delays and staff changes during the development. I knew I was in for something special when the opening gameplay grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go. Of course, I can't go into detail about the plot because I don't want to ruin it remotely for those that haven't played it. And yes, it helps if you have played the other installments so that you can understand the characters and the references that are mentioned. This is the game that shows what this current generation of consoles should be doing. I also should mention that I own a Xbox One and enjoy it so that I cannot be accused of being biased.

    THIS GAME IS AWESOME! If you like your girlfriend/ wife to start playing video games - show her this one. It has a great story line, great graphics, enjoyable to play through, interesting puzzles, great ending, not too hard (at least on the easy levels) and not too many shooting parts. But you might not get your PS4 back for a week. The only drawback is that you have to finish this game 5 times - one time on each difficulty level. To me, that's unnecessary to get a platinum trophy. Each on different difficulty levels. But that's because I like to play on the easy ones. For me a game needs to be fun and not frustration because I have to replay a particular scene 50 times to get past it. If I have to more than 10 times, I shelf the game. I played through Uncharted 4 in 1 week on explorer level (that is the easiest one), just to play the game and have fun.

    kind of knew what I was getting myself into with this game.never really been a fan of the uncharted series but I've owned two of these titles for PS3.i always hear high praise on the graphics of uncharted and thought that with 4K being the new error of picture technology, i would see something that would blow me away.well that wasn't my experience with this game.the graphics aren't bad but to me they do little to exceed the PS4 standard.i own a PS4 pro and a samsung un65ks8000 television.and also a pretty expensive UHd cable (audio quest carbon cable).still none of this does enough to draw me into the game.infact it can be a little boring.but maybe my interest is in this game is misplaced.im not enthused about treasuring hunting.it would probably be a different experience for someone who is.like I said it's decent but not exceptional.

    Where do I start with a game of this caliber. The long history of excellence in programming from Naughty Dog shines throughout all of this games content. From the very lengthy, intense, well-written campaign, to its outstanding, fluid multiplayer modes, you can tell that they put a lot of love into the game, and that the devs really enjoy what they do. This game is a must own if you own a PS4 in my honest opinion, because it shows what the PS4 system is capable of as a whole, and how good exclusives are on the system overall.. The multiplayer has less modes than the normal mp game, but Naughty Dog themselves have plans throughout 2016 to 2017, to release free content to keep the multiplayer fresh for its players, as well as adding new free coop modes still to be determined, and campaign experiences for those willing to purchase the games season pass.

    Standard Gameplay, Amazing Story

    The gameplay is pretty much standard affair. It does a few creative things outside the typical gunplay with the use of a vehicle. It doesn't have as many big roller coaster moments but it is one of the most well told Uncharted stories. If you played one Uncharted game, you know what to expect here. It does though give some reward with the treasures you find that gives you different abilities such as changing the graphics to cell shaded, infinite ammo, and so many other things. The biggest thing I would likely say besides its gorgeous graphics is that it has one of the most satisfying ending of any video game by far. I am not a fan of the multiplayer but this time around they oddly prevented you from being able to throw grenades back at enemies and lost the ability to dodge in the game. The campaign though is the reason to buy this game.

    If I could give this review 3.5 stars I would. I will say this game was not nearly as good as I thought it was going to be. Pros: The story was engaging and I am not the type of gamer to really deeply care about graphics, but the level of detail and attention made the game more immersive. There were several views in the game where I just stood there for a minute or two and looked at the detail the game designers put into the game. Cons: I thought the characters were a little more annoying than I remember. The contextual dialogue was cool, but they usually didn't have anything to say that I cared about. The gameplay to me was extremely repetitive and not super fun. Platforming, firefight, puzzle, story sequence, repeat. That was basically the entire game in a nutshell. The online multiplayer had a greatframerate, but thats about it.

    I picked this game up on a whim. I thought, if it has made it to a fourth title, it has to be good, right? I was BLOWN AWAY. This game had everything I wanted out of an adventure. Large setpieces, big puzzles, shootouts and car chases. As a child, I loved the Indiana Jones movies, and as an adult this game allowed me to live them. I especially loved the arbitrary conversations when nothing was happening. And one of my favorite moments was noticing that as an idle animation, Nathan Drake adjusts his wedding ring. These are very well fleshed out characters and just a solid adventure all around. I'll admit, there are some B movie moments and typical action tropes, but overall this was an experience I won't be forgetting soon, and this title should rightfully be considered a best-of-the-best of this console generation. 10/10.

    If you are already a fan of the Uncharted series, then you will feel right at home with this final chapter in what has been was of the most fun and interesting stories I've ever played. The mechanics are perfect, the graphics are jaw dropping, and story/characters will make you forget that you're playing a game as you get immersed in what I think is the best story line in a video game aside from The Last of Us (also developed by Naughty Dog). I won't give any spoilers, but you must play this game to the end and see how it is all wrapped up. Also, the multiplayer has never been a huge focus or selling point for this series, but it was built very well and is a lot of fun to play. It probably won't be your go-to PVP for hours on end, but it is extremely polished and runs perfectly at 60fps (at the expense of full 1080p resolution).
