CGMagazine (10): “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be regarded in the same light as Ocarina of Time and Grand Theft Auto III as a game that pushed the industry to new heights we’ve never seen before.”
Playstation Universe (10): “Uncharted 4 is the ultimate video game adventure, a visual masterpiece, and a heartfelt, triumphant conclusion for a PlayStation icon.”
TheSixthAxis (10): “Uncharted 4 is more than masterful, bearing the hallmarks of a true system seller. What struck me most as an ardent fans of the series is how much it breaks away from the original blueprint yet manages to amaze on every level. Where many studios step safely from one sequel and into the next, Naughty Dog has taken a gigantic leap, proving yet again they’re the best in the business.”
Push Square (10): “A fitting end for one of PlayStation's most famous franchises, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End sits alongside The Last of Us at the apex of cinematic action experiences. Naughty Dog's ability to tell engaging tales is unmatched, with Nate's final chapter expertly balancing bombast against genuinely relatable themes. It won't redefine the genre quite like Uncharted 2, but the developer's boundless ambition means that this is a bigger, better, and more beautiful adventure than ever before.”
GameSpot (10): “In its writing, in its design, in its understanding of what makes games unique, Uncharted 4 is something to aspire to. It's a shining example. And we'll be talking about it for years to come.”
God is a Geek (10): “I've loved this series from the beginning, but a new high bar has been set in Uncharted 4. Naughty Dog have created a truly memorable game, and one of the very best of the current generation.”
NZGamer (9.8): “An epic masterpiece worth saving your gold doubloons for.”
GamesBeat (9.8): “Uncharted 4's journey is gorgeous and thrilling. It's full of surprises and callbacks that fans of the series will love. It manages to pay tribute to what came before while offering a satisfying conclusion to Drake's story. If this series truly is done, Uncharted 4 ensures that it's a tale we'll never forget.”
Multiplayer.it (9.7): “There are only small flaws for a title that is otherwise incredible, a turning point for videogames in many respects. It's truly an adventure from start to finish, and something that every gamer should experience.”
Everyeye.it (9.5): “Uncharted 4 is one of the best action game ever created. The story doesn't have the same emotional impact of The Last of Us, but it bravely focuses on the characters and their relationships. On the other hand, the tension, the diversity, the pace and the aesthetic value of Nate's last adventure is something we've never experienced before.”
Vandal Online (9.5): “Uncharted 4 is one of those rare games where everything has been made out of passion. The narrative is more important now and it won’t be as genre-defining as Uncharted 2, but it’s the biggest and most complete game in the series. If you’re even just slightly interested in video games, you should try Uncharted 4.”
XGN (9.5): “Uncharted 4 is Drake's last adventure and absolutely his best one. The game looks fantastic and plays even better. The numerous new features and multiplayer modes bring even more enjoyment. This is a must buy for every PlayStation 4 gamer.”
Destructoid (9.5): “That the interpersonal relationships aren't overshadowed by $400 million in pirate gold, or by hundreds of dead mercenaries, is a testament to the caliber of storytelling.”
Power Unlimited (9.4): “Uncharted 4 is a worthy and gorgeous end to the legendary Uncharted franchise. It’s a bittersweet goodbye, but Drake’s adventure couldn’t have ended in any better way.”
Hardcore Gamer (9): “Naughty Dog has done it again, creating a cinematic marvel that sets the bar for the action genre. There are a couple of off moments throughout the story and the multiplayer, while a decent component, lacks the variety other games deliver, but the thirteen hour single player campaign will blow you away. It’s filled with an intriguing mystery, heart-wrenching emotional scenes, incredibly over the top set pieces, and of course the humor fans have come to love from our plucky (now older) hero and his trusty sidekicks.”
Attack of the Fanboy (9): “One of the few PS4 exclusives that lives up to the "Greatness Awaits" slogan. There's a special element to games from Naughty Dog that deliver the type of single player experiences that can stand on their own, offering the perfect blend of story telling, visuals, and gameplay -- everything else I just consider a bonus.”
Eurogamer Italy (9): “Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is simply amazing. Naughty Dog has done an incredible job with the last chapter of this epic franchise, creating a deep, emotional and entertaining experience for both the movies and video games addicted. If you have a PlayStation 4, buy this game and live a gorgeous adventure around the world.”
We Got This Covered (9): “With Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Naughty Dog has delivered another gorgeous, action-packed and memorable epic. Although it's kept from perfection by some pacing issues and a couple of other minor quibbles, it's a jaw-dropping experience that offers a lot of bang for one's buck. As such, it's something that every PlayStation 4 owner, and self-respecting gamer, should play through at least once.”
Digitally Downloaded (8): “In terms of giving the fans what they want, I’m certain Naughty Dog has nailed every part of the brief that it was given. Uncharted 4 shows a truly masterful eye for detail and is near perfect in mechanical execution. It’s also presented with cinematic brilliance. My issues with the game are less about it in isolation than it as representative to the broader AAA-blockbuster space. I am increasingly uncomfortable with the superficiality of these games, and the way that they work so hard to hide just how passive you are as a participant.”
VideoGamer (8): “It's a confident, assured, and rather more intelligent game than it first appears, and a strong end to the series.”
