233w ago - Columbia is developing the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune video game into a feature film, setting Kyle Ward to pen the adaptation that would be produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, Ari Arad and Alex Gartner.
To quote: The story follows a descendent of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue.
The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is racheted up several notches when creatures - actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis - begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure's true secrets.
252w ago - This is Uncharted Drake's fortune for the PlayStation 3 gaming console. I just want to tell you in advance, that no matter what anyone says, if you are in the recommendations below BUY, THIS, GAME!
Uncharted is one of the best games you can get the PlayStation 3, it reminds me of Metal Gear Solid 4, Tomb Raider, and Jak & Daxter. So as you can see if you had to pick a from a combination of awesomeness, chances are you would end up with Uncharted.
But Uncharted is much more then just a cheesy knock off of those 3 games. The storyline (although reminds me of Jak & Daxter) is one of the best on the current generation of consoles.
You follow 2 main characters (Nathan Drake & Elena fisher) as they search for a 500 year old treasure Nathans ancestor left behind and their only clue is a old treasure map they found in his grave.
Once you get 3 hours into the game a large amount of the plot unfolds but trust me, what I leave out due to spoiling is great. In fact if you liked the Jak & Daxter storyline and game play, I can almost reassure you that you will like this game.
The game play is what it took from Metal Gear Solid 4 and Tomb Raider. Not a plain copy I still believe that Metal Gear Solid 4 had...
253w ago - I'll make this abundantly clear off the bat: despite some of the more significant technical glitches in Gears of War 2, it was easily one of the best games of 2008 and certainly one of the best of the generation.
However, I found Uncharted: Drake's Fortune to be a cleaner, and ultimately more entertaining, production. Yes, I'm talking about the first Uncharted and the most recent Gears.
Considering that it's silly to compare either Resistance 2 or Killzone 2 to Gears, the closest PlayStation 3-exclusive competitor is Naughty Dog's new series... and in all honesty, I see Uncharted eventually surpassing Epic's series in terms of overall quality and fun factor (yes, I'm aware the latter is subjective).
Even though there was plenty of critical acclaim and the game sold very well, I still think Drake's Fortune is one of the most overlooked titles of the generation. This is due to a number of factors: first, the PS3 had been out for only a year - and a rough year at that - when the game launched, and it simply didn't reach a very large audience. Second, it wasn't an established franchise and typically, IPs don't fare as well as hotly anticipated sequels.
Third, Sony's bad marketing and promotion left Uncharted out in the cold, but we're starting to see a reversal in that lagging advertising,...
