Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception


uncharted 3 drake's deception          uncharted 3 drake's deception


Uncharted 2 was one of 2009ís top games (actually topping many charts as the game of the year) and it wasnít hard to see why. Great acting, cinematics, gameplay and graphics all came together in one polished package from the studio that brought us our first taste of Crash Bandicoot in the 90ís.

This time around, Drake and his crew are headed to the desert Ė in part, according to creative director Amy Henning because ďthatís going to be really hardĒ.
The term ďdeceptionĒ in the title relates to Nathan Drake, the protagonist himself and perhaps has something to do with his identity. Apparently more storyline around his family will be revealed, which of course could have something to do with a similar tie-in for the big-screen adaption of Uncharted (which isnít expected to be



out until sometime in 2012).

At first I thought it was a bit of a short time frame to pump out another one of these titles, but looking back it seems like the first one was 2007 and the second one 2009 so fall of 2011 is about right for the development cycle that Naughty Dog has in place. Iím personally a little relieved since my gaming schedule for this year already seems


pretty full but Iím excited to see the next game come out.

For me, Iím all about the single player campaign and the improvements here are going to include things like enhanced backwards climbing and the ability to fight more than one enemy at the same time. Iím not quite sure what that means, since I remember in the last one it seemed like bad guys were always all over the place but I guess weíll find out soon enough.

The multiplayer is an area that is supposed to receive some larger enhancements than anything, so if that is your cup of tea then you will be all excited about this. The story is supposed to include more information about the relationship Drake has with ďSullyĒ.
Naughty Dog is one of the best developers in the world and we look forward to what we will get next year! Itís beginning to seem like itís far away now.
