Indiana Jones and Lara croft are names you associate with great adventures and come 7 December, when Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune finds its way to PS3, Nathan Drake will be clambering up vines and leaping over ravines and joining that prestigious list.
Drake, as all intrepid explorers are, is on the hunt for a lost treasure buried deep in the heart of an uncharted Pacific Island. Joining him on this adventure is his sidekick-come-reporter, Elena Fisher, who is filming the expedition in pursuit of a scoop. But after their boat gets blown to pieces it’s clear this isn’t going to be as easy as the pair first thought.
Naughty Dog seems to have found a way to get more kick out of the PS3 than other developers, and have crafted a game that’s not only a joy to play but also gorgeous to look at, hell even the AI is good. All this and they’ve even managed to include a nod to their previous game. Look closely at the wetsuits in the opening sequence and, although obviously not as we remember him; you might just spot Daxter making a cameo appearance.
The first hour of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, which we’ve crammed into just 240 seconds, is full of set pieces and incredible environments which, if they continue, will make this the PS3 game of the year.
Check out the video below and see what you can expect in the 60 minutes of this epic tale.
