With Uncharted 4’s release, Naughty Dog has added another resplendent feather to their impressive cap. Whether you’re looking at graphics, so good that you’ll be surprised that your Playstation 4 doesn’t burst into flames, or the brilliant storyline, bringing to a conclusion on of the best game series ever released; you can’t help but be impressed.
As with most things in life, I’m a “Give me the bad news first,” kind of person. There are some aspects of this game that fell a little flat. While previous Uncharted games included multiplayer, they have generally been rubbish, and felt like a pointless addition to the game. Uncharted’s Multiplayer never really brought anything new to the table and with other far better multiplayer games out there, adding a system that felt more like an afterthought, than not felt unnecessary and a complete waste. Uncharted 4 is no different. Combine this with the user of Micro transactions, which is becoming a fan taboo, was a terrible idea on the part of Naughty Dog.
New players to the Uncharted series, will feel a bit left out. There are many call backs to previous games and much of character story interactions and relationships are based on their shared history fleshed out over the previous games. That being said, if you own a Playstation 4 and have not played the previous Uncharted games, stop reading this, go to your nearest game store and purchase the Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection immediately. Seriously… You won’t regret it. Go buy or borrow it. Shoo… Shoo..
