Wow we are almost polar opposites on this... 4 > 2 > 1 > 3 > Lost legacy. 

...Actually LL shouldn't be taken into account. Terrible mistep and the series should have ended with U4 or least wait til it's time for Drakes daughter to take her Fathers place...Next gen hopefully.

Now there's something we can agree on. I really want to see a new series following Cassie Drake next gen. 

It may be Naive considering ND's love of rounding franchises to three but that fact that they even done UC4 is hope they will continue it in the future. Fingers crossed, mah dude.

Uncharted 2 is my favorite but even if you dislike the story, if you've played all 3 games and are not invested in seeing how their stories wrap up, then I'm not sure how to help you there.

Uncharted 4 is the pinnacle of story driven, action adventure games for me. Nothing about it is wholly original but much like TLoU, everything comes together super cohesive. I liked the story but it is predictable at points. It was still thrilling and enjoyable to experience from start to finish, specially since they wrapped up Drake's saga perfectly. I got emotional during the epilogue, seeing where Drake starts and how it all ends was a nice closure

The first Uncharted game I played was the original, which is my favorite. All four games play very similarly, so maybe that's why I enjoyed the first one the most (as I was more burnt out as the series went on). I must say that I enjoyed all four Uncharted games immensely, but what I always liked most about the series was the lore; the idea of some random dude in modern times having an adventure that should've happened hundreds of years ago; the first game gets it right for me.

Man, Naughty Dog really nailed it during the PS3-era. I hope they continue that trend with TLoU2. The first game was freaking AMAZING. Holy crap what a great game that was.



My only complaints were the lack of supernatural enemies towards the end of the story, like in previous installments. The ending felt a bit too grounded. Other than that, I thought it was an excellent game. The multiplayer is the best in the series imo, and it was a great close to the Nathan Drake saga.

I kind of doubt Naughty Dog will have much involvement if it does happen. They have suggested in interviews that they are done with Uncharted now, and it is rumored that one of the reasons Amy Hennig left because the leadership at Naughty Dog cared more about TLOU than Uncharted in her opinion. 

I look for Sony to put some other studio in charge of the franchise moving forward. Rather it will be an existing studio or a new studio built from the ground up specifically to develop Uncharted (kind of like 343 over at MS was built from the ground up specifically for Halo) is the question. 

I have no doubt that the series has a future though, it's too much of a cash cow for Sony to shelf it. Uncharted 4 has passed 10m sales (according to VGC), and even an expansion sized spinoff like Lost Legacy managed 3m+ (with digital) so far.

had the same strengths and weaknesses as U3

fantastic graphics and environmental design, very good script and voice acting, memorable set-pieces, but problems with pacing and gameplay that was good but nothing more

an 8/10 for me

Amy Hennnig made such a massive mistake, hope to God ND is more forgiving and take her back or she isn't bound by contract to EA. Even though, If it is true that her departure was based on such a trivial matter as focusing on one franchise more than another then, hmm, maybe she doesn't deserve a place at ND. I think ND are masters in knowing when to quit and where to go, I did think U4 was going to be a game not needed, but they knew in foresight that it was to be something and even with the complications it was. 

On the matter that Sony can't pass on a cash cow, I have to disagree. So many series they've but to rest with so many they won't raise speaks enough. That is very unpredictable as to what sony will do with UC but I do agree they'll continue it, however not for the sake of continuing it to cash in, but more so as if the stars align and they have a team confident to do it.

Huh. Right after Uncharted 2, it was my favourite in the series. It really nailed so many things. It's probably better than Uncharted 2 but the series has got relatively stale recently, which hurts Uncharted 4 a bit. On the other hand, Uncharted 3 was my least favourite by far.



I love all games in the series. 4th and 3rd are AMAZING too.

As soon as it was decided sam wont be the villian the character became forced, I mean if he was the bad guy it made sense nathan to not talk about his brother with whom he had a shady past, But in the changed version he shared a good relationship, how can he not tell elena abt his brother?? in the end nates motivation for helping sam felt weak as i didnt care for his character at all.. And Nadine its better not to talk about it. just would like to say she felt forced even in lost legacy.

Because the memory of his brother, who he believes is dead, is too painful for him to want to talk about? This is pretty apparent from UC4.

And he helps his brother out of guilt for what happened to him, the problem Sam is supposedly in, and the boredom of not being out adventuring. 

I think Nadine is a bit forced in Lost Legacy, but that could just be because her South African accent is not that great. Its a bit jarring at times. 

those are implied plots, but those were not conveyed convincingly enough for anyone to care about. and I dont have to tell you that trio have been in far more painful scenario not to share such details, Nate had almost lost elena in Lost legacy.. also if u remember third had a small plot that his real name is not drake.. and even in flashback in third there was no hint that he had a brother! remember he lost sam when he was much older.. 

Leaving his brother to die is far bigger plot line and valid excuse for drake to hide it from elena.. then he died during a heist.. that is something u bring up in a conversion just to let your partner know.. Also the reason sam is not convincing enough coz in third marlow gives full info on Drake.. that his real name is not drake, his father surrender "son" to the orphanage at the age of 5 after his mother commits suicide.. and according to fourth both brother were in the same orphanage.. and this detail would have showed up in marlowes investigation, not like sam was working for some shadow agency for not have any records.

even if neil and bruce had gone with the thread left in uncharted 2, when flynn comes to hire drake for museum heist.. and there nate reminds him that two people were killed lifting something out of that museum and one barely made out, which being nate.

i m just saying Amy version of nates brother sounded far more convincing that what we actually got.
