Review: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (June 23, 2017)

Trailer of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. If you haven’t already, drop everything and play it today!

It took us a little under a month, but we finally found the time to finish the first of Uncharted’s quadrilogy entitled Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  Originally released in 2007, this remastered 2015 version for the PS4 was my initial foray into the world of Nathan Drake–an adventurer/treasure hunter in the mould of Allan Quartermain (Played by Richard Chamberlain | King Solomon’s Mines [1985]) and Indiana Jones yet has elements of Die Hard’s John McClane (Bruce Willis).

Unlike other action-adventure games that put a premium on “player lives”, Drake’s Fortune offers no such restriction and instead focuses on the journey of the our protagonist across 22 stages.  Gameplay is further enhanced with entertaining dialogue and a top notch musical score that plays out like a movie.

Speaking of movies, Spider-Man Homecoming’s Tom Holland is set to play a young Nathan Drake in an upcoming Uncharted movie.  From what I hear, the producers plan on going all the way back to the beginning where a young Drake meets his longtime partner Victor “Sully” Sullivan for the very first time.[i]

Well, its about time for us to move onto the next installation of the franchise, Uncharted: Among Thieves (2009).

Till next time.


[i] Take my money!  Make the damn movie already!
