Uncharted 4 Review.
Nathan Drake and his pals are back for their latest and final adventure. Is this the end we have all been waiting for or does it get buried with past treasures? Let’s find out
Story: In Uncharted 4 we find our lovable cocky hero retired from his treasure hunting days. Settled down married and working a normal job working at the docks bored out of his mind I might add in this case. That is until Nate’s brother Sam shows up who Nate presumed dead years earlier. Without any time wasted Sam reveals he needs help finding Henry Every’s treasure and he has to do it in a short amount of time due to being indebted to a drug lord in panama.
Gameplay: This is just like all of the other Uncharted games with some new features Which are nothing short of greatness. There is the new rope swing/grappling hook mechanic is absolutely fantastic there is so many ways you can go about it in uncharted 4 you could be pulling something down from a vehicle or swinging around to knock enemies out. The one thing I found about this game is that the shoot outs in this game are very much scattered out more throughout the game which is fantastic and when they do occur they are nothing short of challenging. There was a few shoot outs in this game that I must have died about ten times trying to get past them. When you are not shooting your away through the game you are climbing, jumping driving and even exploring. I find this installment of the uncharted franchise to be the most open at every opportunity I found myself looking in every corner to see if I could find a treasure or an optional conversation.
Conclusion: with every uncharted game we see a different relationship unfold. With 1 we got introduced to the characters, with 2 we seen the relationship between Nate and Elena develop, with 3 we seen the bond between Sully and Nate and in this final installment we see the relationship between Nate and His Brother. Everything about this game is just pure greatness when it comes to video games and other game development studios should follow Naughty Dog’s example when it comes to making games.
Uncharted 4: 10/10
A Perfect job Naughty Dog and Play Station.
