Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

It's Friday and you guys know what that means, another game review by yours truly @morkrock and just in time for the weekend.

This is one of those games I played quite a while back, on launch day, to be precise and I have been holding off writing a review on this for ages. This to me is the embodiment of Indiana Jones in a game series, with everything you could expect from action to adventure, romance to loss and most of all exploring and discovering secret locations in search of treasure. Uncharted so far has been an epic story, and we have come a long way with Nathan Drake and the good old Sully. This game will mark the fourth installment in the series and it just gets better each time round.

The driving force behind this game is the story and the deeply complex characters, but as someone who has been there from the beginning of this story, it feels like I am emotionally invested in the game before I even press start. If you guys follow this gaming blog regularly you know how much a great story means to me, it is what can make or break a game. What the folks at Naughty Dog got exceptionally tight was an almost perfect balance. This is one of those games where @princessmewmew literally has to give me a scolding about playing too much games, still so worth it.

Our story begins years before the events of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Nate and his brother Sam are on the hunt or the treasure of infamous pirate Henry Avery.

Now the legend of Henry Avery goes as follows, he was a very famous pirate who plundered $400 million during the 1695 Gunsway heist. The brothers along with their financier Rafe Adler, break into a Panamanian prison in order to investigate the former cell of Captain Avery's first mate. Nate has one of the prison guards in his pocket and has to first cause a bit of a ruckus with the other prisoners in order to follow the plan. With the help of the guard Nate is escorted to the restricted part of this old prison, where he finds the cell and a rather tricky puzzle, which he solves and finds a hollow St. Dismas idol. All they need to do now is escape, and this is where everything goes horribly wrong. During their escape, Sam is shot by guards and Nate flees, believing his brother to be dead.

Fifteen years later, Nate, who is now retired with his wife Elena, gets a mysterious message to meet someone at his work, low and behold his brother. Sam survived, but spent most of this time incarcerated. He finally escapes with the help of a very powerful drug lord, who became obsessed with the tales of the Avery treasure. Now Sam has less than a year to find the treasure or else he will be killed. A reluctant Nate agrees to help save his brother's life. This is where the adventure really begins in the game.

As always the story takes center stage, and the entire game unfolds just like an award winning movie would with the most brilliant, edge of your chair moments.

The game really explores the relationship between the two brothers and there is a chapter or two dedicated to this, think of it as a playable memory. I really have to tip my hat to their writers and the entire team behind this game, at times I felt like I was watching a really great film or series and would completely forget I was playing. Visually the game environment is breathtaking, there is an intense realism to everything in the world. The best way to describe it would be to compare it to when I watched Avatar for the first time, things like the almost impossible to notice breeze that makes the grass shimmer. Don't get me started on the colors.

What was really fun was the unexpected transition from cinematic story to actual game play, it was almost unnoticeable and perfectly timed. The actions scenes are pretty elaborate but somehow it does not feel over used, a perfect example of this it the game play trailer which you can find below.

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. This, I did" - Nathan Drake

There is really not much that I can fault Uncharted 4 on, it ticks each and every box on the almost perfect adventure game.

I would have loved it if they were able to have added more items to collect, at times you would discover some amazing places off the beaten path with nothing really there to discover. Whoever designed these the puzzles gets my stamp of approval, although I would have loved there to be more and harder puzzles to solve. The fights and gun battles have had some minor improvements and the bad guys artificial intelligence is pretty intense, if you consider yourself an above average gamer when it comes the the difficulty settings. Once you are done with the main story play through, which lasts anywhere from fifteen to twenty five hours, you should most definitely take a crack at the multiplayer. This really made the game worth the money because I spent hours playing against real life gamers, some of these guys are pretty good, so be ready to die and then keep dying.
A Thief’s End is just a remarkable achievement with absolute blockbuster storytelling, a cinematic masterpiece in my opinion.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is an action-adventure, third person role playing game developed by awesome people at Naughty Dog, and we go way back.

They brought us Crash Bandicoot which was released back in 1996 which was an amazing game, they then followed that up with spectacular games like the entire Uncharted series and Last of Us which I still consider as one of my top five games of all time. This was published by Sony Computer Entertainment due to this being a PlayStation exclusive title only available on the PlayStation 4 console and was released in May 2016. IF you have never played this I highly recommend you adding this to your collection. Due to the game being over two years old now, I'm sure you will be able to find this highly reduced or even go for the second hand options.

Uncharted 4 gets a well earned rating of 10/10

Great review, as usual! This is the game that my cousin is speaking about for a month now. He is telling me about it, that he is hooked up on it xD Luckily he is not married so he's safe from scolding haha But he can't stop talking about it xD I think he is playing it almost all day and night xD

The story seems really interesting and now, after this review and my annoying cousin, I really should try to play it. It seems that I need to visit my cousin :D :D But what really got me interested in it is that it got multiplayer!! WHaaaat! That is like the best gift these kinds of games can give you. I bet multiplayer is really good to play. And, now while I'm writing this, I'm realizing that probably my cousin is playing multiplayer, that's why he is so hyped up, probably xD

Thanks for the share, this game really sounds amazing! Game on! ;)

Thanks for the awesome comment bro, yeah I can't believe you have not tried this game out, you need to listen to me and that annoying cousin. It's basically like playing a kickass movie.

I always play PC games, so I will probably go visit my cousin haha party time! He lives solo, so you know what that will look like :D :D

I agree with this review having played the game myself.

This game fires on every cylinder, well at least the cylinder that an uncharted game would need, i've planed the previous 3 so i'm pretty well versed in all things Uncharted thus far

If you ever played one of the games before you'd know what an adrenaline rush it is but this one had something extra. Never before have I been so emotionally invested it a game before ( after than the last of us, but I had no prior attachment to that game, and so was slightly less invested).

Also one thing This game had some of the most beautiful characterizations ive ever seen. Never before has Drake, Elena, Sully, and anyone else in this series felt so real, and I don't just mean graphics. There are in real situations, they face real day to day decisions.

If you are an uncharted fan, and you have not yet picked this up...shame on you. And if you are a fan of great games, and are setting on the fence, please give uncharted a try, but please start with the first three.

I literally couldn't put it any better, Uncharted is well balance on almost every aspect you can think of when it comes to a great game.

I played a little game. But I have some impressions about it. According to many reviews of my friends - it's an excellent game both on schedule and on the plot. But there are also friends who she did not like. That is, in their opinion, it is too boring. But this is a matter of preference.

For example, I had a pleasant impression although I'm a rare player in console games. The plot is interesting The game in the style of interactive cinema. In addition, the game is smart physics, as well as a graphic component! Graphics are worked out to small details. In addition, facial animation in the game is very realistic. For such realistic faces of the game you can forgive some nuances :) The old mechanics of movements and movements is preserved in the game, but added several new "tricks".

Overall a great game! It is worth it to spend time on it! The plot, although relatively simple, but very happy. This is my subjective opinion! Thanks for the review!

I love to play games mostly i love adventures game like

Devil May cry series
Far Cry series
The Walking Dead

and many more. This games is like Far cry 4 and I loved Far cry very much specially far cay 3 and far cry 4.

Naughty Dog delivers once again An amazing game. People who love old uncharted games will love this game to much In my opinion, this is the best uncharted yet. as everyone else has said, the graphics are phenomenal. the game play is tighter than it has ever been, and the story is really good in my opinion too .

The graphics are amazing, the story is almost on TLOU-level in my opinion and the game play got even better.

Naughty Dog has crafted a brilliant game that can stand alone as the best game on PlayStation 4. Uncharted was once referred to as a Tomb Raider clone, but it wound up being a Tomb Raider killer. Naughty Dog has elevated the video game industry as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is pure brilliance. It is not perfect but no game will ever be so for me its still 10/10.

Thanks for your review @MorkRock you cover all the detail of the games in your review. I think you love games alot keep it up my friend and have a nice day and @adsactly thanks for sharing this post with us.

Ahhhhh. I read your reviews and sometimes wish my youth would have a controller in hand instead of a bat and ball or bits of motorcycles. I'm thinking I'd really like this. I mean really.

Thanks for a review that was so good that I was taken up by it.

@adsactly
@upvoted

Graphics are awesome

wow what a graphics.... i love adventure gam...

Extraordinary posting...more successful always @adsactly

Incredible game, I would say many times better than the previous ones. The developers have worked hard on graphics, style. Beautiful scenery, better than in previous parts. And in the game a little less shooting, which makes the game only better. In the previous parts of the shooting was at every step and was very exhausting. Now on first place the plot! The game produced a huge number of positive emotions and experiences.

İçerik ve yazılar muhteşem ötesi

I should cry actually, I've not played uncharted and while reading through your review it seems like something I love. A game with a balance between story line and real life stories of the characters. I love games that let you get into the personal lives of their characters.

Hope Steem moons soon because I need to get me a ps4. I've been playing on PC so I know what am missing don't tell me.

Nice game review. How long did it take you to finish the game?

This post is very good for the gamers who love to play games. This post will be very useful and important. I love playing lots of games, especially playing wrestling and fighting games. I love playing games for me. I like IGI and IG I played another kind of game and played games of different kinds as I enjoyed this game very much for me I have not played yet. Seeing this post I think of playing the game. I love this post very much to you. I will try this game to share this game.....

I am so depressed that Drake is being left behind! I don't want to play with Chloe!

A journey full of dates that continue to happen for us continue to create something very useful for themselves and the crowds,
I know this is indeed a game but it is a view that we can continue to mature in terms of continuing competition, in a struggle with a noble mission. In this game I see adal a great power that not everyone can go through the adventure
This is a great power that will make us stronger through the challenges of the precious thing that is able to overcome emotionally.
win will be created with serious work.



We win together

WOOOWW! What a great game.

Uncharted 4 begins directly with adventure. The recognizable style of developers from Naughty Dog instantly draws the player into the vibrant atmosphere of an unforgettable action. After a short introduction, we are directed in the children's years of the main character, in order to show the plot of the game in order.

Nate lives in a children's shelter, his elder brother Sam occasionally visits him. In the next visit of his brother, the guys run away from the shelter. So begins something like learning to play the game. We learn to sneak past the personnel of the orphanage, climb the walls and even run away from the police.

Gohappy to see your gambling post I also likes games and the love the adsactly work..

As you all see , it is nice to create exclusives for consoles: PS4 is the great example of having games on their own platform. Fourth Uncharted game definitly wins with Rise of The Tomb Raider which is one of my favourite game. Uncharted 4 - Game of the Year 2016!

Following for more reviews, wow this one was selling me all the way and I'm not really a fan of action adventure genre. I enjoyed how incredibly critical you are.. the only complaint bieng the alignment between voice actor and animation tells me this is a thoroughly thought out critique.. Cheers!

hi, nice sharing. i am new to steemit
