Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Review

by - September 24, 2009

Since Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is set to be released on October 13, 2009, I thought it would only be fitting to pay homage to Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Developed by Naughty Dog for Playstation 3, (of Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter fame, to name a couple), this 2007 third person shooter action adventure game is just that, packed with action and adventure. 

The story begins with you, as Nathan Drake, recovering the lost coffin of your ancestor and explorer, Sir Francis Drake.  All you find in the coffin is a diary that leads you to El Dorado, the city of gold that your long lost relative so desperately sought.  Spurred on by a missing page from the diary and the fact that you strongly believe your ancestor to have faked his own death, you begin your journey to find the gold that Sir Francis never did. 

You are helped along the way by your friends and hindered by your enemies.  Hired killer mercenaries, pirates, and evil captors are all thrown your way in this awesome game.  If you have ever played and loved the Tomb Raider series (especially Legend and Underworld) or the Prince of Persia series, then you will love this game.  I promise.

P.S.- The graphics in this game are KILLER.

So I strongly suggest picking up this game that IGN gave a 9.1 "Outstanding" rating, and is quoted as being "the most fun I've had in a videogame this year".   

So having told you THAT, let's all get REALLY excited for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves!

If you have not had the chance to watch the trailor for this game, then voila, I provide for you my loves:
