The open world action-adventure third-person shooter video game “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” has been reported to be the last of the popular franchise. Based on gamer reviews after it officially rolled out exclusively to the PlayStation 4 on May 10, the finale game is excellent.
One thing the fourth and final game proved is the vitality of the franchise with its nearly unrivaled gameplay and excellent graphics, the credit of which goes to game developer Naughty Dog.
The “Uncharted” video game series has indeed established a more artistic amusement and complemented it with thrilling gameplay that revolves around secure-based shooting and outrageous platforming, notes the Albany Daily Star.
Naughty Dog has made use of the powerful features of the PlayStation 4 and combining it with the great elements of its past titles in the franchise to give gamers a truly wonderful aggregate gaming experience.
The game developer has succeeded in making probably the most outwardly amazing illustrations ever seen on gaming consoles. It’s just a magnificent spectacle to behold. There is also that superb storyline that perfectly fits the bigger world to explore and contributes to the satisfying gaming feel.
Indicative of how successful “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” is as a third-person shooter video game since its official rollout on May 10, the game continues to dominate the UK individual formats chart from the week of its release until the week ending June 18 or a total of six weeks already and counting.
It dominated the US all formats charts in May. In both charts, it is followed by Bethesda’s “Doom” on the PS4, the Xbox One, and the PC.
Critics believe that “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” will continue to remain a chart-topper in the UK until a new third-person shooter video game comes out, which would not be happening anytime soon.
Less than one week after its official release, the game was generating mostly positive reviews from game critics, most of them praising Naughty Dog for finally giving the franchise a rightful pace that seemed to have been missing during its first three iterations.
A phenomenal game
One reputable gaming critic Casey Newton even posted on his Twitter account last month that after all the delays that the game has been subjected to for several times in the past, “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” proved to be quite phenomenal.
He lauded the efforts of Naughty Dog for giving the game so many more character moments and much less mindless shootings, which were very prevalent in both “Uncharted 2” and “Uncharted 3.”
One gamer even detailed that he completed “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” in just under 13 hours spread across four sessions.
He said that while he is not the type of person to have the patience of playing or watching TV for long hours, “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” made it so easy for him because Naughty Dog has indeed crafted a gorgeous and fantastically remarkable end to the saga of Nathan Drake. He attributed the success of the game to its pacing.
The critic said that the focus of “Uncharted 4” is far more heavily weighted toward exploration and platforming levels, with a character along for the ride to help tell the story that the gamer plays.
“Uncharted 4” also has the best combat ever seen in the series. Most encounters take place in spaces with a clever design filled with nooks and crannies to exploit and there is little of the magical reinforcement that artificially extended the previous games’ running times.
The game is still as big as it gets in terms of video game development but its single-player adventure feels increasingly anachronistic.
Another thing that Naughty Dog has been highly commended and praised for with “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” is its extensive set of accessibility features which is incredibly important to gamers with certain disabilities.
