I'm a former hardcore gamer that now just casually games due to college and business work. I'm mainly an Xbox 360 enthusiast who is absolutely loving the kinect and the power it has brought to my family.
I'm also a former halo addict who logged many many hours on Combat evolved and the two subsequent sequels.
Lately, I've been feeling a resurgence in gaming and want to share some reviews and knowledge that I've acquired over the years.
Uncharted 3 shows the return of the acclaimed cinematic game for PlayStation 3. The adventure of Nathan Drake can once again surprise the player with beautiful visual effects, exciting battles and a very good multiplayer mode.
"Uncharted 3" has a difficult mission: overcome "Uncharted 2". You can see that the fight here is good, because we are talking about a game that has a strong cinematic appeal starring one of the most outstanding characters of this generation of videogames. This time the key is to find Ubar, the Atlantis of the desert, but on the way Drake has to confront his past and the loyalty of his friends.
Great graphics It seemed impossible, but Naughty Dog was once again able to push all the known limits of the PS3. Everything in "Uncharted 3" is very, very beautiful, full of details and very organic. Many of the "trappings" of scenarios such as fruit baskets, tapestries and armor are there to make the environment more natural.
Involute plot The game's story is very exciting and involves many points as the loyalty of his friends, connecting with Sullivan Drake and the game's villain, Marlowe. Without spoiling the story, you could say that all friends of the protagonist appear and have a reason to help you in the adventure, without pushing it. The game also gives the chance to see the first steps of Drake as a treasure hunter - and that's just the tip of the iceberg. It is important that you know that "Uncharted 3" is one of the most exciting games, not only by the interactive portion, but also by cut scenes that govern the game as a well tuned orchestra.
More variety in combat The battles are improved, either in the close combat or pointing a gun at the enemy. Now Drake has more interaction with the scenery. During the fight he picks up bottles, used chairs, stones and corners to end the threat. Among the new tricks Drake is able to pull grenades located in the enemies belts.
Breathtaking Action "Uncharted 3" does not let the player stop and breathe a minute. Whether it is a constant fighting scene, an escape, or pursuit there is always something on the screen. The player feels he is in a John Woo film or another film director who insists on putting a scene of tension even in the most peaceful parts, like solving a puzzle in a cave populated with killer spiders.
Positive Points Great graphics
More variety in combat
Multiplayer varied and competent

Aside from that, I love trying new games when I come across them in my business. I usually have time on the weekends to test new titles at night and generate some opinions about them. I'm good at giving first impressions of games, and typically play devils advocate when it comes to arguments.
I'll give a game its due before writing it off.
I'm at work right now and thats all the time I have.
