SO, as may of you know, a couple month(s) ago, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End released.

Who has played it, and what are your thoughts? Favourite characters? I finished playing it on Saturday, and oh man. I cannot believe how good of a game it was.

It was absolutely amazing, and by far one of my favourite video games ever played.

Also, just put spoilers in spoilers, just in case anyone wants to browse on here.

Sam has GOT to be my favourite. He's got such a complex and detailed back-story, much like the Nathan Drake himself. The way Naughty Dog has developed their characters, is absolutely mind blowing.

Share everything about Uncharted 4: A Thief's End here!

Finished it last week, myself. I played it in hour-two hour segments, as my Uncle and brother watched the whole thing. Had to make sure they were present any time I played, and as said Uncle doesn't live with us, and we have our own schedules, playing wasn't fully up to me haha. Off-topic at this point, but I feel it actually paced the game nicely in doing so. I'm the type of person who will blow through games in a few days. This way of playing kept me from doing just that and (most likely) burning out.

Actual topic:

I thought the end was done well, but I was under the impression it was going to be a much bigger ending from impressions and stuff. Still, it was good nonetheless.

Favorite character is always Sully in these games. I don't know why, but I love Sully. Sam was a great character though, considering he was just put into the games in 4, yet already feels like a part of the series.

Gameplay in 4 was top-notch, wouldn't have minded more of it. Personally I treated every encounter as if it was in Metal Gear Solid. Stealth-kill everything. Making use of the environment to hide, climb, and hop around was super fun.

The length of it was longer than I expected when going in, which was a pleasant surprise. The pacing may have suffered a bit because of it, but I don't think it was bad enough to say game-time was needlessly padded. It was the Harry Potter/Hunger Games finale, but you're given Part 1 and 2 in one go, basically.



I really enjoyed it. I did sell it off basically as soon as finishing, just to make sure I got max value out of it. The games never were very replayable for me, so it made sense. Doesn't detract one bit from how good I thought the game was; but it was more of an experience than a game to play over and over. The only thing that sucks is that now I'll miss out on the story DLC whenever that comes out. Crossing my fingers they do like was done with The Last of Us, and the DLC gets printed as its own disc as well!

Actually, I'm crossing my fingers that they >>>Use Cassie in the DLC<<< but I highly doubt they will, since that's an end-game spoiler. I dunno', it just feels like if they use Nathan again I'd almost feel... less closure? Like, it would just make the ending seem off.

^ I finished it within a week, my dad watching all the times I played. He's much more of an open-world sort of person, but Uncharted has finally made him think story-based games are better than they actually are. I did the same sort of time, one-two hours, two-three chapters at most each day. I'm going to replay all of the Uncharted games (except 4) this week, cannot wait to see how they feel again after 4.

Sully was a fantastic character in the games. He really had that sarcasm that Nate had, which I think made them have that much more chemistry. I was actually super happy when Sam and Sully finally got on, at the final chapter they seemed to get on so well. That's exactly why I love Sam; only introduced in this game, yet he's already a huge part of the Uncharted series. Again, they did absolutely amazing on characters. So amazed on how they did it.

The length was actually really nice! I liked the length, because it was the sort of game which wouldn't end to quickly, or ramble on for too long. It was perfect. I played A Thief's End as a wind-down from school everyday and it sure did. Only trouble was, when I played it and had to get off it, I would spend the next day thinking 'oh my god what's gonna happen' haha.

Yeah, I get what you mean. My dad actually got me the Special Edition, with all the codes for online and the amazing art book. I mean, looking through the art book completely blew me, man. It was so good. I know why you would sell it, but me being a keeper/hoarder, I would never be able to let go of it.

I totally get what you mean about the DLC stuff. >Cassie< was a major part of the ending as >she< is now part of Nate's life, would be kind of weird for them to miss her out. Then again, end of game spoilers. Who knows, let's hope they do.

Can I just comment on the soundtrack, though? Some pieces on that... Blew me away. One Last Time gets me all teary eyed every time I listen to it because of how beautiful it is, and it just reminds me of Chapter 22 when >>Sam is almost forcing Nate to leave, because he had fulfilled his life goal and that's all he wanted to do. Man, that game had me on an emotional roller coaster. Also the track called 'For Better Or Worse' (Chapter 17 name) Which played when >Elena and Nate were driving to New Devon, trying to get to the elevator.<. That part of the chapter was so powerful, it's almost like you could feel the tension between them both.

Flagging this page for the future. I'm currently 85% done with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves [remastered] which is AMAZINGLY action-packed (although I'm slightly frustratingly stuck on the part with the two bots with machine guns.)

I have Uncharted 4 ready to be played once I finish Uncharted 2 and 3. Can't wait, they are great games!

The soundtrack to 4 was good! I have the CD to it thanks to my Uncle picking it up, "because it was a limited edition," (he's a sucker for that wording ) and it makes an okay playlist to browse to. Don't think it's quite as memorable on the whole as the earlier titles, but it's not bad and the stand-out tracks did... well, stand out.



I'm totally in the minority on this one, but I thought 3 was better than 2 for multiple reasons (4 =3 >2 >>>>>>>>>>>> 1 imo). Hope you get the same enjoyment out of it as I did!

Also I called any heavy enemy from later games "Tweedle Lee and Tweedle Dumb" because of those two machine gun bots. I believe that was Nate's nickname for them?

I absolutely loved it, and I get you when you say it makes a good browsing song.

Ahh, cannot wait for tonight. Will finally have time to start Uncharted, which I'm terribly excited about. Can't wait until I can finally play it again.

What's your favourite Chapter? There are so many Chapters to which I adore, such as Chapter 16, Chapter 21, 22 and even chapter 1.

I'm gonna' have to go with Kyle Bosman on favorite Chapter, and say 4. A Normal Life. There's just so much that I adored in it, and it all stems from the context in which it's given. In any game, even Uncharted, a whole Chapter that is nothing but walking and cutscenes (well, and Crash Bandicoot to be completely fair!) would not normally be looked at fondly. But when put into the proper context it turns into something great.

It was also an excellent retrospective of the series, and a look into Nate's mind as a normal person. He misses the adventure, but is afraid of losing what he has. He chuckles at how he used to dress. He's grown up, but is shown to still be young... or wish to be young again, in any case.

...It was honestly harder hitting than the opening prison break, for me.

Oh my god, A Normal Life was an amazing chapter. Being able to reference games in other games is something really hard to do! It's such a nostalgic touch as well, which I think makes the chapter feel more closer to you and personal.

Chapter 5, Sam's prison break, was really, really good. Thing is, it made the end of Chapter 15 where Rafe exposes Sam even more heartbreaking and emotional than it would've been before.

Yes, I'm going back to the discussion of the sound track. The soundtrack for A Normal Life is beautiful and it really reflects the chapter as a whole.

*reviving*

I'm on Chapter 18 of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. It's actually better than what I remembered it to be! It's actually quite slow at the first 10 chapters because of how many people you need to shoot/kill. I find all the puzzles to be quite confusing, though it's probably just me

Changing title because it should be a discussion about all the games and not just U4.

*reviving again*

Sooo I finalllyyy picked this game back up after a couple months hiatus. I'm so glad I did because I missed playing it!

I'm now 96% done with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves [remastered] and am planning on completing the game tomorrow. One step closer to Uncharted 4.

Yeah, I'm terrible at the puzzles haha. I'm much better at Tomb Raider puzzles than Uncharted puzzles. I'm just blind haha.

I am VERY tired of shooting people every 2 seconds and I'm annoyed as heck about those "guardians". Veeeery difficult to kill.

Hey, thanks for reviving

I think most Uncharted puzzles are there to simply confuse you tbh I spent half an got with my dad trying to figure what the heck was going on in one of them, and I think this was in the first Uncharted.

I played all the games in a 2-3 week period and may I say, this series is so much better than I originally THOIGH it was when I first played them.

So I finally completed Uncharted 2! It was amazing. The ending was perfect in every way possible.

Honestly, I ship Nathan and Elena so hard.

I used to think it would be cute to see Nathan and Lara Croft be together, but noooo. Elena all the way.
It might be pretty neat to see a crossover of Uncharted with Tomb Raider, but that would never happen since they are competitors. (Well...who knows I guess.)

Anyhow, I'm super excited and scared to jump into Uncharted 3. I heard there's a lot more backstory with it but I'm also scared since a lot of people were saying the gameplay was awful since it felt like the bullets weren't actually hitting the targets. But I'm mostly excited.


EDIT: That Lazarevic (sp?) fight nearly killed me. I was so frustrated but I managed to get it done. -phew-

I loved Uncharted 3, I really hope you do too!! The backstory is actually a lovely addition to Nate's character, and I adore it. It's such a nice touch, and you really see the story behind Nate and someone else

And the shooting techniques aren't really great, that's really the only downside with the game. I loved Unchated 3, it stands close behind Uncharted 4.

The Lazarevich fight was the only one I did without dying, actually. I somehow managed to realise what to do in like 0.5 seconds and even though I did come close, I didn't . Which is weird, for me

Nate and Elena are the literal best together. Not gonna lie. They've been through so much and legit it's adorable.

A cross-over of Tomb Raider and Uncharted would be pretty cool, even though I'm not really a fan of Tomb Raider. I don't know.

Dang, almost a month later and I'm continuing the Uncharted series with Uncharted 3. I'm about 30% done with the game, currently in France so far. I LOVED the backstory when Nathan was 14 and Sully first met him. That was perfect.

I do not like shooting though. I feel like shooting them in the head does nothing.

Nate's backstory is so perfectly thought out he's by far one of the best developed characters I've seen.

Yeah... Really, that's the only downside to U3. It's my 2nd favourite, very close behind Uncharted 4, only because of that reason.

I'm now 60% done with the game.

Oooooomggggggg I'm in love. Marlowe is a weird antagonist, but I love the settings! I'm currently on the Abducted mission where Nathan is trying to rescue Sully on a shipwreck. Man, the battle sequences in this area are tough! I'm gonna have to be more stealthy on my third attempt.

Oh and I LOVED the chase scene with that guy (can't remember his name, but Marlowe's assistant) which was super long but I loved it! And when they drugged Nathan!

I'm curious to know how they got Sully and where Elena went unless they abducted her too. o:

Hoping to finish up Uncharted 3 soon! I'm enjoying this long journey so far!

EDIT: Fixed for those who haven't finished the game.

Might wanna put some of that in spoilers

Talbot is an actual BAE.

But the chase scene with him is more than enough to keep me playing, honestly.

Yeah the sequences on that ship is difficult not gonna lie, took me a while to do it.

But I love Marlowe. I just feel because she's so different from other antagonists that it makes her character more interesting and unique if you get me, but that's probably just me lol

The scene where Nate got drugged was absolutely brill, the ending is awesome too.

Fixed.

I assumed everyone on here played it, but I shouldn't always assume. Especially if anyone new posts on here to start the series!

But yesss definitely.

What's your ranking of the Uncharted series?

I think so far my rating is:

U3 > U2 > U1

I thought the second game would be my favorite, but so far I just love Uncharted 3.

I think the gunplay that people were talking about in U3 is definitely noticeable in this game, but for the most part, it doesn't affect my experience that much. It's mostly just annoying to have to have to headshot 5 times for a "heavy" enemy to fall (the ones that have extra armor and head armor without covering their face).

Nah man, it's fine. Just don't want people to be triggered if they come in here and they haven't played it

My ranking has got to be

U4 > U3 > U2 > U1

You will adore Uncharted 4 when you get to play it, honestly I think it's one of the best games on the PS4, not to mention the best looking one.

I actually didn't really notice it that was probably me being v unobservant, but my god the heavies were the death of me. Jesus they gave me a hard time lol

I agree wholeheartedly with you.

I'm just gonna put the whole thing in spoiler so I don't have to keep adding more spoiler tags.

>>So, I slightly rage quit the last time I played, which was 2-3 weeks ago. I was on the "Abducted" chapter, at the very beginning and I tried go out guns a blazing, until I realized that only spelled out 'death' for me. I tried being stealthy and it worked to an extent. It pushed me forward a little and I died. A LOT. But I kept getting pushed forward to another checkpoint and kept going from there. but OHMYGOD was it frustrating. I do NOT like the heavies with the shotgun. There were 2-4 in this encounter and it was not fun. I eventually learned to use the side of the ship for cover, and I basically resorted to throwing 2 grenades right next to the heavy to fully kill him, one just to rip his armor off. Also, I'm not sure if you've played GTA 5 before, but I've been playing it a LOT recently and it uses auto-assist meaning once I hold down the left trigger to aim, it automatically aims at a target. I essentially played GTA 5 for double digit hours the past 2 weeks so I got used to it auto aiming. So it took me a while to get back into Uncharted 3's non-auto-assist. I'm used to it now though. I decided to stop at the part where Nathan finds out he can't control the ship to move (what the heck Nathan, you should've known, the ship was completely destroyed!) so now he has to zipline to two other ships to get to where Sully is at. I needed a moment to breathe so I ended my session for the night. Man, was it a struggle though! I appreciate the level design, but water is the worst in terms of combat.<<

Also, should I mention, while I was on said ship, I got glitched INTO it. I couldn't get out so I had to reload my save.

Oh my god I legit hated that encounter.

Not only did I die 20000000 times but it got to the point where it was basically taking 1-2 hours a night to complete, when really I just wanted to get on with the game.

And who remembers the Yak that Nate patted in Uncharted 2 my friend was round and we played Uncharted 4 and we started talking about ships, so I just blurted out with 'Nate and Yak 2009. Still a better love story than Twilight.' And we laughed for 20 minutes

So, I'm back to playing Uncharted 3! I took a long break due to a lot of classwork from uni but finals week is almost over so I have lots of free time left.

I FINALLY got past the water parts. I hated those shipwrecks so badly by the end of it. Although the moment when the cruise ship was sinking was pretty cool and looked amazing.

I'm now proudly at the desert. I love the change of scenery...it's crazy to think I'm 84% done with the game and I only NOW just got to the desert area. It's funny since I thought the desert would be the major part of the game, but over half of the game was in France and other locations.

I'm on chapter 17 now, so I think I'm getting close to finishing it. Gonna end up playing Uncharted 4 in January after winter break is over.. I'm so excited though!

So about that...

I finished Uncharted 3 tonight!!

And...


started UNCHARTED 4

Omg it's so beautiful. I'm on chapter 5 right now. I love everything about it. Every single thing. The story is amazing and I feel like I like it more than the other 3 games even though I have barely started this one.

And I actually love the combat in this one. It feels much more smooth and fluid.

Unlike Uncharted 3. I truly hated every combat encounter, especially with the Djinn.

Awh I'm so happy you started Uncharted 4! Best game for me out of the series. Honestly, I'm sure you'll love it.

The graphics are some of the best I've seen and everything is just so special. The combat is especially the best, you can stealth or just go all out and shoot people!

Uncharted 4 has got to be one of the best games I've ever played (haven't said that before!)

-

Have you guys heard about the standalone Uncharted game that's coming out called Uncharted: A Lost Legacy? I'm so stoked! It's going to be amazing. Not only that but The Last Of Us Part 2 got announced and I may have cried

I just finished Uncharted 4.

I'm sad that it's the last game but happy that it ended on a bittersweet note!

My favorite chapters were probably Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 15, and the Madagascar parts. It was all so beautifully well done and much longer than the previous games!

I'd have to agree that this soundtrack was not on the scale of the previous games, but I did really like one song in particular. I'm not sure what the song is called but it plays numerous times throughout the game, most notably when Elena and Nathan are in the jeep driving 'one last time'. I cannot tell you how much of a mark this game has made on me. I was so impressed by how many diverse locations they visited and I was a huge fangirl when it came to Nathan and Elena's relationship.

I also may or may not have squealed when Sully first showed up in the game. They are all such great characters. I kinda resented Sam for part of the game because he replaced Sully as his "partner" numerous times. Plus what happened in Chapter 15. But I still really like Sam, he had such an interesting personality.
