UNCHARTED: THE LOST LEGACY

Naughty Dog/Sony



Nathan, Nathan, who the fuck is Nathan?

Seriously, it won’t take long at all after slipping into the shoes of The Lost Legacy’s Chloe Frazer before you’ll forget all about that Drake bloke. Well, save for the fact that this is basically the same game that he tromped about in for several outings. But when the games are polished shinier than the shiniest of rare and valuable artefacts then are we going to complain? No, no we are not.

So, if you’ve embarked upon any other Uncharted jaunt you’ll know what to expect here, just with a more female perspective – and lots of photo ops. It’s still third-person action-adventuring with a stealthy, puzzling slant – plus melee combat and a veritable shitload of guns to play with. Then there’s the getting friendly with vehicles thing and climbing – lots of climbing. Oh. and of course it still involves treasure hunting.

The treasure in question? The legendary tusk of Ganesh. Chloe’s following in her daddy’s footsteps by travelling to India looking for booty. She’s enlisted a familiar face in Nadine Ross to assist her, and once they procure a map they’re on their way to adventure, treasure and... pursuit by a nasty militia leader. Hey, nobody said it would be easy.

As an aside, that ever-so-shiny treasure. While we have a 4K TV, we can’t afford a PS4 Pro (the first thing causing the second). But just the added graphical oomph that HDR adds to proceedings makes this the finest-looking Uncharted we’ve seen. 4K must look stunning.

As we’re now accustomed to with Uncharted outings, everything is seamless as one scene transitions to the next, be it gameplay or cutscene.

It’s not quite as long as previous Uncharted adventures, but TLL is never flabby. From the lead duo’s dynamics to the incessant just-can’t-put-it-down addictiveness, this is a fitting farewell to Uncharted.

Until Naughty Dog change their minds again...

take me back to the start...
