Uncharted is overrated, and what? Pt. 6

This whole mini-series has been dragging on for some time now. I’ve had a short break from it all whilst i’ve been on holiday, but I’m back with a vengeance and a steely determination!

I’ve finished Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection; the first three games of the series in their remastered format for PS4.

Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the ride I’ve been on over the past few weeks but has my opinion changed? Are the games still overrated? Well, I think I’ve played enough to form an opinion without the need for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and my answer is yes, they’re still massively overrated.

Two down, two to go! Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is all done and dusted. I’m not all that interested in trophies at this point, I’m just hunkering down and getting through each one as quickly as possible. This one has taken a little longer due to other distractions I’ve had going on, nevertheless I’m back on course and hopefully I’ll finish Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception before long.

One down, three to go! That’s right, I finally finished Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune from the Nathan Drake Collection. I say ‘finally’ as if the game was a drag, which it felt like in parts but it didn’t take all that long in reality. I managed to finish the whole thing on hard in just over 6 hours. Although many may see that as a bad thing, for me, I’m happy with that. I suppose that you can forgive the game being so short because, as part of the Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection, you’ve got three titles to play. The thought of buying this game for £40 though, on it’s own in 2007, is a frightening one. Me though? I just wanted to get it over and done with as quickly as possible.

I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: I’m not a huge fan of the Uncharted series.

However, this brave and unpopular opinion of mine has been formed without properly experiencing the games. I’ve played a little bit of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and even less of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, but that’s about it. At the minute, I’d say I’m relatively impartial on the whole; I’ve never been captivated enough to show much of an interest but I’ve always been convinced that the series is ‘overrated’ and have often labelled it as such.

“What did you do, Nathan?” | “I said that Uncharted was overrated!”

So, I thought I’d finally bite the bullet and experience one of the most revered game series of all time. I have gathered up all of my prejudice and I’ve thrown it to one side whilst I work my way through the Nathan Drake Collection with open eyes. Once I’ve finished them all and then Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End too, I feel that I’ll be sufficiently qualified to say whatever the hell I want to about the whole series.
