When I finally made the move to make the transition from the Xbox 360 to the PS4, I also regret not being able to play some of the best games that was on the PS3. Thankfully, I got the remastered collection of the Uncharted trilogy just in time for the hype of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and it was worth it. You play as Nathan Drake, who aims to find treasures from various places (Don’t want to spoil any further than that!). Read on for my review on this collection.
All three Uncharted games are remastered for the PS4, with 1080p resolution, better lighting, textures, and 60 frames per second. This makes the games even more realistic compare to the PS3, and 60fps is a welcome change considering that these games are very action-intensive. And speaking of which, the presentation in all three games are exceptional to the point that I feel like I’m watching the Indiana Jones films on the PS4. This compliments well with the gameplay that Uncharted provides, which comprises of platforming, puzzles and gun fights. You can hear characters talking throughout the various scenes, creating an immersion of a typical film.
Without going into too much detail, I’ll just say that anybody who plays the trilogy should just enjoy the story. If you’re into speed runs, the collection does give you the option to do continuous speed runs of the three games. Sadly, there’s no multiplayer in this collection, but thankfully, the upcoming Uncharted 4 will include multiplayer, which I’m playing the beta as of now and I had a ton of fun.
If you’re looking for a reason to get a PS4, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is one of them. You’re essentially getting the best trilogy that was out on the PS3, remastered for people like me who missed out and would like to enjoy Nathan Drake’s story. It quickly became a franchise for the Playstation, and the expectations for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is REALLY HIGH.
At this point, I could even say that it is essential for any Playstation 4 owners to get this collection as it becomes a lot easier to understand what’s going on in the next Uncharted game, which comes out in March 2016. I’ll decide if I’m willing to buy Uncharted 4 before heading off to Japan, but since I actually finished the first three in less than a week, why not ? 😛
