Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Review (PS4)

Graphics

Damn I have been waiting so long for this game and it didn’t disappoint me. Yes I know my review is quite late but the reason for that was because I wanted to fully enjoy the game and I didn’t want to rush it but at last my uncharted 4 review arrives. This game is bloody fantastic. Like it’s brilliant. The graphics in this game are……PERFECT. I am not kidding this game is the best looking ps4 game in existence and it’s the best looking console game to date. Heck it even looks better than some PC games. Kudos to you naughty dog for creating such a beautiful,spectacular game. The game was so good the ending left me in tears. Uncharted 4 is without a doubt the best game of the generation so far. If I could give the graphics in this game 101 I would. 

Cinematics

The cinematics in Uncharted 4 are….PERFECT. Yes I know i am overusing the word perfect but whatever. The cinematics are literally out of this world. The graphics make the cinematics look stunning. Naughty Dog how did you do it?! how?! please I want to know. Game developers need to start taking notes because Naughty Dog has set the bar extremely high. 

Story

The game begins in medias res with treasure hunter brothers Nathan “Nate” Drake (Nolan North) and Samuel “Sam” Drake (Troy Baker) driving toward an island in a storm while fighting off armed thugs in boats before their boat is scuttled. Years before, when Nate (Britain Dalton) is living in the St. Francis orphanage, he’s visited by Sam (Chase Austin), who was kicked out for criminal activities. After helping him sneak out, Sam tells Nate he’s leaving for a job that will keep him away for a few years, before cheering him up by telling him that he knows where their late mother’s effects were sold.

Years later (before the events of the first game), the two are on the trail of infamous pirate Henry Avery, who enacted the largest heist in history in the 1600s, with plunder worth 400 million dollars. Teaming up with wealthy treasure hunter Rafe Adler (Warren Kole), the brothers sneak into a Panama jail where Avery’s first mate, Burnes, was hanged. Aided by corrupt guard Vargas (Hemky Madera), Nate sneaks into Burnes’ tower cell, where he finds a cross that points to the treasure being in the St. Dismas cathedral in Scotland. When the three try to leave, Vargas, who’s discovered what they’re after, tries to blackmail them into giving him a cut. Rafe responds by stabbing him to death, forcing them to flee. Sam is presumably shot dead in the attempt, leaving Nate so distraught that he gives up the search while Rafe continues without him.

Fifteen years later (three years after the third game) Nate has retired from treasure hunting and now works for a salvage company while attempting to enjoy a peaceful life with his wife Elena (Emily Rose), though he misses the life of adventure. One night, he is visited at the office by a very much alive Sam, who explains that he was saved by doctors and left to rot in jail for the rest of his life for Vargas’ death. However, he was broken out by his cellmate, drug lord Hector Alcazar (Robin Atkin Downes), who, upon learning that Sam doesn’t know where the treasure is contrary to previous statements, gave him three months to find it or suffer his wrath. Though reluctant at first, Nate eventually agrees to help Sam while telling Elena that he’s taken a salvage job in Malaysia.

Gameplay

The gameplay in Uncharted 4 is beyond fantastic. I honestly don’t think this game has ANY flaw and it’s the best game I have played in an extremely long time. I don’t even think another game this year can surpass Uncharted 4…well maybe Final Fantasy but we’ll see. Uncharted 4 has fantastic gameplay. Exploring can be extremely fun and watching the AI fail can be very funny. Uncharted 4 does everything right. You will enjoy this game. Trust me. 

Controls

The Controls in Uncharted 4 are perfect. This game blows every cinematic adventure – action game out of the water. The AI can be extremely useless but that adds humor to the game in my opinion. Overall the controls in Uncharted 4 are perfect. If only Star Fox Zero has controls like this. 

Content

The Content in Uncharted 4 is Amazing. It is much more longer than the past games and it has an epic story with epic action scenes with beautiful characters PLUS it has a crash bandicoot Easter Egg. Uncharted also has an extremely fun multiplayer mode. It’s not as good as multiplayer based games but who buys uncharted for multiplayer anyways?! 

Music

The music in uncharted 4 is godly. This may not be a popular opinion but I think the music in this game is better than uncharted 1,2 and 3. I loved the music. The music gave me that adventure feel. Brilliant. 

The Good

  • EVERYTHING

The Bad

  • Nothing

Verdict = 99% – The Best Game of The Generation So Far. -Our Highest Reviewed Game-
