A mystery. An unknown island. A legendary treasure. You are Nathan Drake, a fortune hunter who's after the mythical treasure of El Dorado. After discovering a clue in the coffin of Sir Frances Drake, Nathan and several companions are off to seek their fortune, only to discover an unknown island in the Pacific. Your adventure begins as Nathan's luck changes for the worst. Not only do Nathan and company get stranded on the island, but he and his friends are also in danger and must stay ahead of the mercenaries on the island looking to kill them. The question is: Will you be able to survive long enough to unravel the mystery of the island, find the treasure and make it back safely? To answer that you need to fire up the PS3 and take Uncharted: Drake's Fortune for a spin to see if you can hack it as a big-time fortune hunter.
Smooth handling controls allow for great, realistic action as Nathan can "run and gun" as he looks for cover, but that's not all that's in store for Nathan and his friends. Uncharted isn't "a duck and cover to avoid enemies at all costs" game, Nathan and his crew must fight back and hold their own in ground fights and during some sweet high-speed chases if they hope to make it back alive and in one piece. Using a combination of smarts, a decent aim and some well placed kicks and punches, Nathan and his crew become a formidable opposition to the island's mercenaries as everyone battles it out for the ultimate prize. In between fighting to stay alive, there are clues to find and puzzles to solve using maps and artifacts that bring Nathan and his friends ever-closer to the magnificent treasure of El Dorado. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is an engaging, action-packed adventure game that balances a good storyline and a tantalizing mystery and then tops it off with great combat and firepower. This game is an all-around winner.
