Top 10 Games of 2011: #8 Uncharted 3 Drake’s Deception
From the moment it was revealed Uncharted 3 was high on my list of most anticipated games of 2011, unfortunately Uncharted 3 didn’t necessarily live up to my high expectations but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great game.
The main problem I had with Uncharted 3 is that it didn’t do enough different from the past two games in the series to really differentiate itself. The gameplay was solid, the story in my opinion was the best in the series, and the visuals are some of the best your likely to see in a game. But this is all something I’ve come to expect from Uncharted, while it did everything extremely well I couldn’t help but feeling like I’ve played this game before.
If it comes off like I’m criticizing Uncharted 3 a bit much that’s only because I love the series so much and expected a bit more from it. It just hit to many of the same notes as past entries in the series to land a higher spot on this list.
All criticism aside Uncharted 3 is truly a great game that every PS3 owner should play as it offers a cinematic story experience that few games can really provide, accompanied by some truly awe inspiring action pieces that would put most Hollywood blockbusters to shame.
