Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception review round-up

There’s not much to say about this one. Uncharted has been critically well received since the first entry in the now trilogy. The second game was widely regarded as one of the best titles of 2009, and Drake’s Deception looks like it will be right up there on many people’s “Best of the Year” list.

Check out the praise for Naughty Dog’s latest.

  • 1UP (A) - Developer Naughty Dog continues to prove they are masters of their craft, and the third chapter of Uncharted is a fun and rewarding adventure that’s easily one of the best games this year. -Jose Otero
  • ArsTechnica (Buy) - The game is so good that Naughty Dog may have hit a wall when it comes to how well you can tell a story in a game; now it’s the developer’s job to break through that wall. This sets a very high water mark in almost every way. -Ben Kuchera
  • GameSpot (9.0/10) - Everything that Drake’s Deception attempts, it pulls off with flying colors. This is a beautiful, cohesive, and, most importantly, fun adventure that cements the Uncharted franchise as one of the best around. More of a good thing is welcome here. -Tom Mc Shea
  • Giant Bomb (5/5) - Nathan Drake’s new adventure doesn’t rewrite the book like his last one did, but damn if it’s not a great action game anyway. -Brad Shoemaker
  • IGN (10/10) - From start to finish, single player to multiplayer, this game sings. The characters, the graphics, the sound, the story – they’re all top notch. If you’re willing to skip Uncharted 3, be prepared to miss one of gaming’s finest moments. -Greg Miller
  • Joystiq (4.5/5) - Moment to moment, it outshines just about every other game on the market, and while it doesn’t exactly break the action-adventure mold, it fills it with such practiced substance that you don’t really mind the familiarity of its shape. -Griffin McElroy
