Reviews Roundup: Uncharted: A Thief’s End

Set 3 years after the events of Uncharted 3, Nathan Drake has apparently left the world of fortune hunting behind. However, it doesn’t take long for adventure to come calling when Drake’s brother, Sam, re-emerges asking for his help to save his own life and offering an adventure Drake cannot resist. On the hunt for Captain Henry Avery’s long-lost treasure, Sam and Drake embark on a journey to find Libertalia, the pirate utopia deep in the forests of Madagascar. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End takes players around the globe, through jungle isles, urban cities and snow-capped peaks on the search for Avery’s fortune.

Reviews by women across the web: - Sharon Coone, 5/5

Uncharted continues to be a masterclass in level design, for as always, Drake finds his route amidst what appears as a dauntingly open setting. Battlefields themselves have evolved, built with a focus on mobility and structural complexity. Most combat zones are layers of architecture spattered with tall grass, giving Nathan ample room to remain undetected between his acrobatics. This, coupled with his new ability to tag enemies in his sights, make stealth a surprisingly viable option.

IGN - Lucy O’Brien, 8.8/10

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a remarkable achievement in blockbuster storytelling and graphical beauty. Though it’s let down by a lack of imagination and some self-indulgence, especially in a third act that drags on far too long, Uncharted 4 carries on the series’ proud tradition of peerless polish and style. Most importantly, it’s a gentle sendoff to the rag-tag group of characters we’ve known for nine years.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a gigantic game, and its strengths and weaknesses are mostly connected to the sheer scope and grandeur of the game. At its best, it’s mind-blowingly awesome. At its weakest moments, it’s just trying to do too much in one game.
