X-Play host Adam Sessler has spent many, many hours playing and carefully considering PlayStation 3 game Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for his review. Among many things, The Sess was struck with Uncharted 3's story, saying:
"Naughty Dog’s careful attention to the drama in all aspects of the game has seen a refinement in Uncharted 3’s pacing. In successive playthroughs of Uncharted 2, it became evident that the combat sequences could drag on and, in the final hours, could arrive with such repetitive force that their importance diminished. Uncharted 3, especially in its earlier sections, doles out gameplay elements with a far more generous sense of variety and expectation: climbing sequences are heavy with what’s to be found on top, combat is designed more for the environment rather than necessity, and puzzles carry a strong sense of mystery that can open up the plot, all conspiring to even better engage the player and blend its various components into an essential whole."
The game has some huge shoes to fill; the bar set by the previous two Uncharted games is almost impossibly high. How well does it stand up to it's predecessors? Read our Uncharted 3 review to find out, and leave your own thoughts in our comment section below.
