Set years after Uncharted 3, the story follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake, now happily married, retired and working as a salvage diver. This all changes when Drake’s older brother Sam, once presumed dead, returns seeking for help finding a treasure worth four hundred million dollars, a treasure that will save his life as he has been targeted by the Panamanian cartel.
Naughty Dog always know what gamers want, from the iconic Crash Bandicoot on PS1 to the PS3 masterpiece “The Last of Us”. Now, the studio returns with a bigger and more complex quest for Nathan Drake, where he interacts with his brother to climb walls or teams up to take down enemies. This interaction works perfectly and in an enjoyably natural way.
Graphics are superb, with realistic shadows and physics applied into what is now more like an sandbox or open world game than the earlier on-rails games. Despite the different environment, the gameplay remains the same with an instinctive approach that allows all kind of gamers to play it.
While the graphics and gameplay are great, the biggest highlight of Uncharted 4 is its plot and clever writing that makes the player feel like they’re making a movie with great cinematic sequences, flash backs and of course tons of action. This game is the best action/adventure cinematic experience since Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade!
