I loved Uncharted 2 and I was hoping Uncharted 3 will be even bigger and better as a sequel.
Don't get me wrong, its a great game but the story is not as good as Uncharted 2.
The fight sequences and overall platforming in U2 was so different and unique that it's almost hard to replicate it so U3 almost feels like the same game but in a different setting (the middle east arabic countries as opposed to U2 which took place near India and Nepal).
Overall, the game is still very entertaining and a highly adrenaline filled adventure that leaves us all wanting more from the series.
One minor thing...the U3 disc does have glitches which cause the game to be not recognized by some ps3's. I had the same problem but eventually the game did work and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
I would give it a 8.5/10.
It's very addictive and a fairly fun and easy game to get the platinum.
If you have a ps3, then you have to play Uncharted 3.

Like the first two in the series, in Uncharted 3 you'll have to battle your way through obstacles, puzzles and worst of all hordes and hordes of bad guys. But unlike Uncharted 2 where the battles against the bad guys seemed redundant halfway through the game, somehow Uncharted 3 kept every battle fresh and unique.
My only gripe--and a very small gripe--with Uncharted 3 was that while almost every battle was against enemies that were 100% human, a lot seemed virtually bulletproof and the armored guys pretty much were bulletproof. Not that I had much of a problem getting through most of them, but it was a little silly having to empty a clip into a guy--even after knocking off his bulletproof helmet--to take him down. Even more silly was hitting a guy with a grenade or grenade launcher only to see him stand back up or have a little of his armor fall off. Some of the seemingly invincible human adversaries were just kooky.
But like I said, that was a very small gripe. The pros so far outweighed the single con of this game that I'd be hard-pressed to suggest that there was a better game released in 2011 than Uncharted 3. The game excelled at anything in a game that I've ever seen in beautiful, realistic surroundings and graphics...you never get tired of looking at this game.
Most areas require you to clear the enemies out before you can get through, but there were one or two areas where you're better off just running for the exit; and the only way to figure out which way is which is by trial and error...you don't get a map. But not to worry...if the game senses that you're lost it encourages you to press the D-pad for a hint.
There are 100 hidden treasures that you can try to find and collect along your way marked by flashes of light, and a plethora of weapons and ammo are also marked by flashes of light so the treasures (deliberately) are not always easy to spot (and not necessary to collect to get through the game any easier).
I played on Normal and on Crushing (got my first Platinum Trophy!!!). You get some pretty effective weapons that get you through the levels, and the amount of ammo you find along the way is no different no matter what you set the game's difficulty to. You're allowed to carry 2 weapons at a time plus grenades, but you're restricted to a side arm and one heavier gun.
Uncharted 3 adds a LOT more hand-to-hand combat. The Hand-to-hand combat is usually pretty easy and you'll only need to master 3 button commands plus a couple of stealth moves. Heed this advice: when you hear Drake say something like, "We'll need to do this quietly," you'd better use stealth or you're in for some firefights that will have you cussing, dying and starting the checkpoint over.
You'll also of course need to navigate yourself through some treacherous territory and perform some death defying acts and escapes (and you certainly won't defy death every time). But when you're not in a firefight or being chased by some vicious enemy, take the time to stop and rotate the camera to appreciate the detail that has been put into the graphics in some of the levels. There's some really amazing, real looking terrain.
Oh, and almost forgot, as far as the online and co-op aspects go...I've become kind of a story mode / campaigner gamer. Uncharted 3 has multiplayer and co-op modes, but the co-op mode is for missions designed exclusively for co-op...not the ability to play the story with a partner (like Resident Evil 5). So I can't say that I've given Uncharted 3's online play a fair enough chance to comment, but I will say that my son seems to enjoy the multiplayer as much as if not more than Modern Warefare 3.
So is Uncharted 3 a great game? YES! One of the best to hit the PS3 platform? YES! Should you buy it? YES! Even if you haven't played Uncharted 1? YES! YES! YES! No question here...don't rent this; add it to your cart.
If you're new to the series and you're getting on to this game after finishing the previous two, then get on with it! Don't listen to others, saying it's bad or whatever. Take it from me, play the game yourself and see if it's good or not. But let me tell ya, I have an enjoyable experience and the idea of searching the Iram of the Pillars was a fantastic adventure! Sure, it has some flaws but I could even point out some stuff on the second game as well. Who am I to say that? But seriously, start up the game and try. It doesn't hurt. It's a good game, nevertheless.
