Marking game number 4 for the Uncharted series and Nathan Drake Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End pulls him right out of retirement to reunite with this brother and Sully to search for clues and find Captain Henry Avery’s treasure. Serving as the final instalment in the franchise the game delivers an impressive send off to the characters of the franchise both from a story and gameplay perspective.

Just like the past additions in the franchise you’ll find a high quality and over the top action adventure title played from a third person view. Controlling Nathan Drake in platform demanding sequences that require you to climb, swim, sprint and jump across gorgeous landscapes you’ll be heavily relying on your physical strength, acrobatic skills and the vital grappling hook.

Whether you’re attacking enemies directly with your arsenal of guns or relying more on the vast range of stealth elements which have grown nicely in the jump from Uncharted 3 to Uncharted 4. Other improvements have been focused towards removing large focus quick time events and better control of vehicles which definitely doesn’t go unnoticed.

It’s also very easy to forget you’re playing an action adventure game despite the linear story and adventure in the background thanks to multiple paths for exploration and completing your objective. While some levels are fairly self contained some can often feel like a mini open world that never seems to end be it because of open landscapes or the large number of intelligent roaming AI that make the level feel alive (with this intelligence also extending nicely to your allied AI).

These controlled AI also make brief appearances in multiplayer to assist you with fighting and healing on the battlefield. While it’s never going to compete with the multiplayer focused games out there in the market the modes, flow and mechanics are all solid enough to squeeze another dozen or so hours from your experience.

Summary:

  • The fourth and final game for Nathan Drake.
  • A strong story and send off for your favourite characters.
  • Improvements in stealth options.
  • Beautiful graphics and large maps to explore.
  • Multiplayer available.
