    Naughty Dog, back at it again with a Masterpiece.

    I have enjoyed the tales and hijinks of Nathan Drake in the past. Beginning with Uncharted 1, which I found to be just a bit above average. Uncharted 2 followed and I felt it was superior to its prequel. After that it was Uncharted 3 with it's gorgeous and exhilarating set pieces, not to mention it's emotionally intriguing story. I thought for sure the gem that Uncharted 3 was that nothing would ever come close. Boy was I wrong, the power of the PS4 and Naughty Dog's expertise with the systems architecture really makes this game a sight to behold. It does not take long for you to realize just how far graphics have improved on home consoles. The game is truly breath taking and you can't help but place your controller down and admire a lot of the views in the beginning of the story mode. I found the combat to be enjoyable but I do feel the amount of time shooting and fighting bad guys was toned down in favor of developing the story. It is because of this that towards the middle of the game it starts to feel like the story slows it's pace down a bit too much for my liking. However think of it as the eye of a storm because soon afterwards the game kicks you right in the teeth, becoming extremely hard to put down. The game is of average length taking me roughly 18-22 hours to complete without rushing through. I definitely recommend picking up the Nathan Drake collection in order to fully enjoy this game, if you haven't played any previous Uncharted games you will not empathize with any of the characters the game throws at you and will make your experience with Uncharted 4 forgetful. Naughty Dog has truly outdid themselves with this one. A must play for all Playstation 4 owners.

    My favorite Uncharted game hands down

    What can I say? I had a SPECTACULAR time with this game. The gameplay here is AMAZING! I didn't have any performance issues while playing. The last Uncharted game I played, before this one, was Uncharted 3(PS4 remastered). For some reason, I felt Uncharted 3 play as well. That could've been because I rented it and was doing a speed run. Regardless, Uncharted 4 played beautifully! Gunplay was amazing, destructible cover does add a challenge to the player, story was amazing, the end doesn't pull a Mass Effect 3 on us, puzzles are nice, the scenery is just GORGEOUS! I found myself stopping numerous times to enjoy the view! I didn't have much trouble navigating the game. Sure, I needed a hint here and there, but I was able to go through pretty smoothly. The stealth mechanics here are executed nicely. While it's no Metal Gear, you can still take out an entire group of enemies through stealth means! And it is fun to use the grappling hook while in combat. I got the special edition because I love Steelbooks. The artbook is a nice bonus too; I really enjoyed seeing the concept art for characters and environments. And thanks to the preorder bonus at Best Buy, I got a nice coin that you see in the game(Libertalia currency, I'll let figure that out on your own)! Buy this game you won't regret it!

    This is yet another awesome entry in the Uncharted series. If you are a fan of this series, I highly recommend buying this. The graphics really show the power of the PS4. Everything from beautiful environments, to the lighting, shadows, and rich colors really make you look around as Nathan Drake and take it in. Needless to say, you might be using the Photo Mode a lot to capture screenshots. Control wise the game remains the same as the other entries in the series. Combat, walking, camera, and climbing are all pretty much the same, but you get some new tools that show up as a context-sensitive prompt. The story is what you would expect it to be from the series if you've played the other entries - a huge blockbuster type with lots of action and treasure hunting. If you haven't played the other entries, I would recommend you do. There will be parts of the story you may not get. The motion capture and voice acting are top notch and the actors really bring the characters to life. The sound and music are also another highlight for this game. The explosions, gunfire, and walking around all sound great. It really makes you feel like you're there in the game. If you're a fan of action-adventure, or a fan of the Uncharted series then you will love this game.

    Another Masterpiece from Naughty Dog

    This has to be one of the Best looking games ive ever played on both Playstation & PC (yes I know im sure there are games on PC that have the potential to look much better on PC with the proper hardware). The Steel Book for this game also has some of the best art on it ive seen. The Story is very much your normal Uncharted game with Drake & Sully's wit along with new characters. as mentioned before the environments and character models are absolutely beautiful. the sound effects are also fantastic even without wearing headphones I could "Feel" the impact of explosions. you can defiantly see the influence of what Naughty Dog learned while making the last of us implemented in both the Single player and Multiplayer which in my opinion is a great thing. The story certainly isn't as impactful as The Last of Us's story but its still great. This game is definitely a must buy & I highly recommend it to anyone that is thinking about buying a PS4 or already owns a PS4.

    The best game of the series!

    The Uncharted series, otherwise known as Sony's flag ship franchise, is finally coming to an end. Naughty Dog debut the series nearly a decade ago with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune PS3 to critical acclaim from gamers and critics alike. It impressed a lot of people with it's graphics at the time, and people fell in love with it's characters. With the directors of The Last of Us at the helm, you can see a lot of it's DNA sprinkled throughout the game itself. it's ultimately a masterpiece, and one I personally consider the best in the series. The multiplayer itself is really fun, if you love third person shooters. The special edition itself and quite nice to have. It sports a steelbook with a custom cover of the character themselves. It includes a artbook that's fun to look out, but probably not more than once. It's a great to put the shelf, especially for such a great game. If you have a PS4 there's absolutely no reason for you to miss this. Pick it up!

    I am very happy with the limited edition version of Uncharted 4. The presentation of the special edition in particular aside from the game is spectacular. The steelbook cover of the game is done so differently from most versions of a steelbook. The colors and texture of the steelbook are second to none. The artbook is also a noce throw in. I would have gotten the Lebertalia edit if the statue didn't look so wierd and so unlike Nathan Drake. The game is a fitting end to the series and tries to be more of an open area exploration with multiple paths to get to the same area. Those do seem pointless at times but is a nice addition to the game. The story is fantastic, you've groqn with these characters for 3 games previous and you feel so much empathy towards all of them. I don't want to talk too much more about the game but i do recommend buying it. You won't regret it.

    PHENOMENAL conclusion.

    Wow. Though there is an argument to be made that this game stands on it's own compared to the first 3 Uncharted games, I still recommend the Uncharted Collection as well. I bought a PS4 for the sole purpose of playing the Uncharted series, and it was well worth it. The controls of the game are not overly complicated at all, so it's easy to pick up, and visually, there are only a few games that can compare to how amazing A Thief's End looks. All in all, this is easily one of the 3 or 4 best games of 2016, and if you're a big Uncharted fan, this collectors edition, which comes with an awesome steelbook case and art book for the game, is well worth the investment.

    Great Game, Not the Best Uncharted

    I really enjoyed this game, however, I don't feel that it has the best Uncharted story. There were quite a few traditional Uncharted elements missing from this iteration that fans seem to gloss over. The story itself as well isn't up to the same par as the previous stories in my opinion. The game shows that there were issues behind the scenes at Naughty Dog and when the lead writer left that the game went through major overhaul. With all of that said, it's a fantastic game but it's just a minor notch below the others in the series. Also, a word to the wise, don't play on Crushing difficulty on your first time through. You'll just be doing yourself a disservice in the long run.

    An Epic Conclusion to the Uncharted Series!

    I've been a fan of the Uncharted series for a long, long time! Since picking up the very first Uncharted, I was totally hooked to Nathan Drake and Co. The stories, the cinematic, the characters all suck you into the world that makes Uncharted. That being said, the fourth iteration in the series definitely packs that classic Uncharted emotional punch! With introductions to new character's like Nathan's brother's Sam to amazing set larger than life set pieces, the final story of Nathan Drake will leave players hooked until the very end. If you are new to the series, pick up the Uncharted Collection on PS4 and then play this. You will not regret it!

    The Definitive Game on PS4

    Uncharted 4 was worth the long wait and has surpassed all expectations. The single player is lengthy with a 12-14 hour playtime. All of which is centered in breathtaking locales. This is the best looking game on consoles. Gameplay is the same Uncharted fare with more of an emphasis on stealth. The story is gripping from beginning to end with many well written characters. Multiplayer is also great with many options when it comes to boosters guns and special weapons. It will keep the disc in tour PS4 even after the campaign is finished. Overall, Uncharted 4 is a game that deserves its universal acclaim and every PS4 owner should experience this game

    While it doesn't FEEL much like the original trilogy, it is a great experience. The frequent use of boxes, sliding, and helping allies around obstacles definitely hurt the experience for me. Certainly, that is a testament to how beautiful the graphics are since solving similar looking puzzles really popped out. I would regularly roll my eyes when the same objects showed up all over the world even though I knew it was necessary for gameplay. All and all, it's an amazing game that is at it's worst when it needs to be a game. Either way, I would recommend Uncharted 4 to any fan of the action adventure genre.

    A Thief's End is the end to one of the best video game series to date, mixing high action with fantastical locales and over-the-top Indiana Jones style story telling. In fact, Naughty Dog has surpassed themselves yet again with this entry's story, explaining Nathan Drake's background, his lost brother's connection to him, and familiarizes you with why Drake is so willing to live his life dangerously. If you have been wanting a game with high replay value, unforgettable story driven experiences, and a definite challenge, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this today.

    Everyone knows that Naughty Dog delivers on the gameplay and graphics as well as the story and the fate of Nathan Drake. I'm here to talk about what's edition comes with and why it's worth it. This edition comes with a steel book case for the game, a Nathan Drake figure, a hardcover book, and some DLC's to give you the edge when playing. If that's not enough for you to throw down the dough to score this edition, I don't know what will if you're a Gamers Club Member, the discount you get from buying this edition basically pays for the membership itself.

    I have played all of the Uncharted games and out of the series I still feel Uncharted 2 was the best in most categories. Uncharted 4 is a great game and very fun to play. The only disappointment was I expected from the previews some areas to free roam in. There is pseudo free roam however it still is on rails. This game is one of the best looking games on consoles to date and is quite smooth and you can tell the care that was put into it. While not perfect it is close to perfect and a must have for PS4 owners that like action games!

    I have been looking for a good set of ear buds and I bought the jbl sport wireless headphones and couldn't stand and I also had a pair of beats. Once I found out Bose came out with these I got them right away because I had also had the Bose truesound ultra which I loved. I wanted a pair of wireless headphones for work and these are perfect. They have great sound and the battery life lasts me my whole 8 hour shift. Would highly recommend these if you are looking for a great wireless headset

    The best game on the PS4

    The previous games in this series are all well regarded classics, and this game is no exception. If anything, the bar has been raised -- even above the incredible The Last of Us. If only every game had graphics like these, characters this memorable, and were as intricately plotted. The gunplay is still the weakest piece of the puzzle, but it's less of a problem than ever, and any shortcomings are easily forgiven in the face of this game's many, many strengths.

    The Uncharted Series has always been outstanding. Naughty Dog, the studio and makers of said games, always go the extra mile to make their games truly something special, and this one is no exception. The attention to detail is unparalleled, just as the storytelling and characters are unforgettable and always full of surprises. Enjoy my friends- I hope this helped you realize what Uncharted has to offer to you, and remember: greatness comes from small things.

    The first scene of the game is basically the description for the whole game. It looks beautiful! So glad to see Nathan Drake back in action. The multiplayer is back on Next Gen & I have been waiting for it since I last played UC3 on PS3. The steel book that comes with the special edition is gorgeous & the art book is a must have for Uncharted fans. Looks like this game will be preoccupying me for quite some time.

    As an avid fan of the Uncharted series, and having played all of the titles in this series, I waited anxiously for the release of Uncharted 4. The graphics are amazing, and along with great new additions to the gameplay. This game is like playing in a movie, watching the journey that each character goes through. Along with plenty easter eggs to remind you of older days (spoiler: Crash Bandicoot), this game is excellent!
