The game was never worth playing, it's nothing more than a string of boring climbing sequences, draped together with an unoriginal plot, irritatingly poor dialogue, a tendency to shove pretty backgrounds down your throat in the hopes you'll overlook how **bleep** the game (and I use that term loosely) actually is, and a lovely spattering of mass-murder to fill in the empty spaces.
Possibly one of the worst games ever made; only beaten by its predecessors.
Of the 3 I wasn't as big a fan of this as the first 2. Played through countless times in 2 on story mode and loved the co-op online. After playing 2, the story in 3 was kinda a let down but the online can still be fun. Seems like a pretty dedicated community though and I got mopped up quick playing competitive modes. The co-op in 3 is fun, but the mode that rotates survival/gold rush/siege gets repetitive and boring fast.
I played the second and hated it, that's true, but thren everyone started saying number 3 was great so I thought, "Hey, they must have given it a complete revamp for it to even be 'ok', I might as well give it a go", yet it turned out all they'd done is make the shiny backgrounds a bit more shiny. I never played the first, and I'll never play any more that will inevitable emerge out og Naughty Dogs' arse over the coming years, but that doesn't change the fact that I wasted hours of my life of those pieces of dross.
If you can explain to me why anyone likes the game,I'd really appreciate it.
I'd recommend buying it; I rented it back in November/December 2011 for a week, completed it and enjoyed it, then returned it. I was at GAME (in the UK) last week and found it for £7.50, I also bought the 2nd one (which I used to have) and the first one (which I'd never played) and I'm very glad I did, Uncharted is one of the best exclusives on the PS3 with out a shadow of a doubt and Uncharted 3 is no exception, even though I personally think the 2nd one is the best.
