Earlier today I finished Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. A good game, but in my opinion not as great as the first or second game. The adventure doesn’t feel as great as the one in the first and second game, it actually feels a little lacking. Don’t get me wrong, I like it very much but it didn’t live up to my expectations. One of the things I’m most frustrated with is that the writers leaves so many questions unanswered.
The villains where lacking, I hardly noticed them in the game. Just their henchmen, not like Lazarevic in Uncharted 2. Which was ruthless and a real asshole, who did anything to get what he wanted. Sure they fit the game, but I wish they had more presence in the game.
Especially since both Drake and Sully had a past with Marlowe. And how could Talbot disappear like he did? Is he a wizard? No, but seriously. I wish there was a bit more too it. Both game wise and story wise. Still a good game, that I recommend everyone to try if you like the other two Uncharted games. For me this game was contender for GOTY (Game Of The Year), but this time I don’t think it will win that for me. The same year Uncharted 2 came out, so did also Batman: Arkham Asylum. Both of them competed for GOTY for me that year, the winner was Uncharted. But this year with Uncharted 3 and Batman: Arkham City. It could very well be Batman what will take my own personal GOTY this time. We’ll see, I am not finished with that game yet, so anything can happen.
