10 Things An Xbox Player Learned Playing Uncharted For The First Time
10. Drake's Fortune Isn't All It's Cracked Up To Be
Not to upset the Uncharted purists among you, but I really did not care for Drake's Fortune in the slightest.
Everything about the franchise's entry point just felt very mediocre, with its one saving grace being the title's strength of narrative and its wonderful visuals. The developers behind the remaster, Blue Point, should really be commended for updating the look and feel of the franchise's opening entry. It's a testament to Uncharted's technical brilliance that it still manages to impress 9 years on from its debut, but sadly I found its gameplay lacking in a great many ways.
Not that it's completely without merit, however. In fact, Drake's Fortune remains worth playing solely due to the fact that it serves as a worthy introduction to the series as a whole, along with the fact that Nate, Sully and Elena are no less entertaining here than they are in its later instalments. They form the bread and butter of what makes Uncharted so great, and the sooner you get to know them, the better.
