'Uncharted 3' Reviews Hit the Net - Surprise, it's Great

Posted Tue Oct 25, 2011 at 06:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The lowest rating, and the one that fans are of course raving about, is an eight out of ten.

When a triple-A sequel based on a triple-A game that got crazy good reviews, there's little question about what the response will be. Only in rare cases, or after the game gets overdone like the 'Tony Hawk' series, does a poor rating show up.

Fans of Nathan Drake and the half-tucked shirt will be happy to know that reviews are glowing for the latest installment of the series. 'Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception,' at the time of this writing anyway, has a Metacritic score of 94 out of 100. Normally we'd tell you to take Metacritic's review aggregation system with a grain of salt, but when things are unanimous it's hard to argue.

If you're a PlayStation 3 owner and you've somehow not played any of the 'Uncharted' games yet, you'll want to get on this one, if just to improve your videogame literacy. If you've played the past 'Uncharted' titles you'll want to get on this one because, well, it's 'Uncharted.'
