UNCHARTED 3: DRAKE'S DECEPTION

Sony



Behind you! Behind you!!!

Three guys walk into a bar; one coulrophobic, one claustrophobic and one, erm, non-capnophobic...
 
Yep, Nathan Fillionís back, along with Jason Statham and his big blue pal from Monsters Inc, Sully. Theyíll meet other peeps on this latest treasure-hunting escapade, both old friends and old fiends. Of the latter, Pierce Brosnan and Helen Mirren appear to be doing much of the plotty-plotty-plotting. Plus, there could even be zombies, Sackboys, pirates, ninjas or cowboys.

Why the fuck are we sounding vaguer than a wide awake Ozzy Osbourne? Well, we promised no story spoilers. So, we canít tell you why Nate and Sully [REDACTED], or how when [REDACTED] appears they [REDACTED]. We canít tell you diddly. Or squat. Just like eating carrots, itís for your own good.

Oh alright, weíll tell you it begins with a bar brawl. Hardly a dangly train near-death experience like in Among Thieves, but donít panic, much exhilarating actiontasticness awaits.

Anybody familiar with the last instalment will feel comfy, despite some tweaks. Fisticuffs are improved, and wait ítil you encounter a Ďbruteí. Gunplayís changed, not necessarily for the better as itís still bitchfuckgrumpfargh-inducing aiming whilst the baddies gunning for you have Terminator-like accuracy. Meanwhile, puzzles can still utterly confound, and the camera will often have you hurling DualShocks with GRRRRR abandon.

Visually? Wow. No sham, just wow. Again the voice acting demonstrates how itís done, whilst the story contains nary a dull moment. Multiplayer ditches story; you may enjoy, you may not.

As is the Uncharted way, Drakeís Deception is a rollicking, quip-laden matinee movie that you can interact with when it sees fit. Itíll never allow you to veer off the course it wants you on, and if that shits you then youíd best steer clear. Itíd be a shame though, as this is one hell of a [REDACTED].

take me back to the start...
